Thanks to all of our past guest for their prayers. We are so glad our home was spared from this tragic fire. Please continue to pray for everyone involved.

Papa Bear's Den stands majestically on Ski Mountain in Gatlinburg TN, and is part of the renowned Chalet Village area. We are less than 5 min to downtown and the entrance of the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. This cabin has access to nearby pools, tennis courts, meeting rooms, and conference center. It is only minutes from both Ober Gatlinburg, with exciting snow skiing, ice skating and shopping, and all the entertainment of downtown Gatlinburg, the Great Smoky Mountain National Park or Pigeon Forge.

When you enter this amazing three story log cabin, you'll start your journey walking onto the bottom deck. Here you'll find a view of the mountains and Mt. Le Conte, and you can wave at the folks on the silent tram as it passes by. In the spring, fall, winter or after a rain, you can hear Holy Branch Creek meandering through the mountains. Walking inside you'll find a bedroom with a king bed, dresser and a 32' flat screen TV. There is also a half bath in this room. The second room down is a television room with a 37' flat screen TV, PlayStation 3 with 30 games, and a DVD player. Heading up the stairs you'll enter the magnificent great room with the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Looking up you'll see a staggering cathedral ceiling. In the living room, you'll enjoy the river stone gas fireplace, the attractive bear/moose/canoe printed sofa, chair, a 50' Plasma TV, Blu Rray DVD player. In the kitchen/dining room, there is a bay window for you to take in the amazing view. You'll find plenty of space at the large table which seats 7-8 people with 2 chairs, a wide 5' bench, a wide 3' bench, and extra seating is available with 2 stools at the bar. The kitchen is fully stocked with refrigerator, stove, microwave, Keurig and standard coffee maker, and much more! There's a door that leads to the upper deck, which features 8 chairs, some tables, and a electric charbroil grill. The deck wraps around the corner and there you'll find a 5 person hot tub and stairs leading to a small yard in the back of the cabin. Back inside, the main level features 2 bedrooms. The first bedroom has a queen bed, 32" flat screen TV, night stand with drawers, and closet. There is also a laundry closet with a new full size ironing board, iron, washer and dryer. The second bedroom is the master and features a king bed, gas fireplace, closet, built-in shelves, large Jacuzzi tub, 43" flat screen TV, DVD player, and a private door out to the deck and the hot tub. Between the two bedrooms, is the first of two baths. This one has a double vanity, hair dryer, and standard bathtub with shower. Once we move upstairs, It's time for Fun! It has an 8' pool table! A Multi Game Arcade that has over 60 games. Ms. Pac Man, Frogger, Donkey Kong are just a few of the games.

About Julie

My husband and I purchased this home in February of 2012. We have worked hard to make this an enjoying place for everyone. We hope you love it as much as we do. Our sons also enjoy coming here. My oldest son is married and he and his wife love it here too. We put new flooring up and and down and did so other renovations. The lower level now has its own heating and cooling thermostat. We had professionals come in and take care of the wall and landscaping giving this the clean curb appeal that all will enjoy.

Julie purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Julie chose Gatlinburg

The Mountain view, and the amazing view of Downtown Gatlinburg, the tram passing by is an amazing view too, The creek you can see and hear at different times of the year. There is so much to love. I couldn't begin to name them all. We are truly blessed to be able to own this cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

You can use all of the facilities of the Chalet Village owners club. With three pools, a tennis court, meeting rooms for just about any occasion. Wedding facilities and just about anything you can think of.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin was clean and exactly as the pictures show it. The fall colors of the changing leaves were picture perfect. The cabin is pretty far up the mountain but only 5 minutes from the strip in Gatlinburg. The National Park was also very close. This was a great deal. Maybe next time we won't go during the Bama vs UT game lol. This was copied from my flipkey site.

Great Owners!!!

  • 5 of 5

Julie was absolutely great to work with and very responsive. I can't think of a time we went more than an hour before we received a reply to an email and in most cases it was less than 10 minutes. The wildfires prevented us from going on our trip as planned so I can't speak to the property itself. Julie, without hesitation, refunded our cost 15 days before our arrival date as she was concerned about power being turned on in time and the quality of our vacation given the damage to the area. We will eventually make a trip to Gatlinburg and we won't have worry about where to stay as it will always be with Julie.

Owner's Response: Thank You so much for the kind works. We couldn't guarantee an awesome trip since there were so many unknowns! We not about the money we're here to help our guest have the best vacation ever. It was something I'm sure most of the owners would have done. We look forward to you actually getting to stay at our home. We are so blessed that it is still standing! Thanks Again! Julie

Beautiful cabin and property with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

My family and another came together for a "friends-giving" and had an awesome time. The cabin had amenities that kept the three children busy and occupied for hours and enough space for the adults to enjoy some peace and quiet. The kitchen was fully equipped and was spacious enough for 4 adults to prepare a Thanksgiving meal/feast. The rooms were comfortable, the view was amazing, and the location and proximity to attractions couldn't be beat. Thank you for opening your home away from home to us!

Cozy, Comfortable Cabin just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg

  • 5 of 5

My family of five, plus my parents (grandparents) enjoyed a very lovely stay in Papa Bear's Den. It was my parents' first trip to Gatlinburg in 15+ years so I wanted it to be memorable for them! We were all very impressed with this cabin. Some of our favorites were: easy gas fireplaces, hot tub, pool table, wall-mount jukebox in the rec area (perfect for listening to Christmas music), very clean and updated cabin, open floor plan, LOCATION! We could not have asked for a better place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank You for taking the time to leave such a nice review. Rick and I really appreciate that. We are also so glad you and your family enjoyed our home. We work very hard to make sure everything is perfect for everyone's vacation. We realize that a great place to stay can help to create an amazing vacation! We use to travel with our son's hockey team and they would tell us what hotel we were staying at and this could make for an awful trip. So we want to make sure that everyone has an amazing and wonderful trip! We also want to take the time to thank you for pointing out some of the extra things at the cabin. We felt it's the extra things that set us apart from the other choices. We also know it will make everyone vacationing have memories that will last forever. We hope you can come back to the area, and that your parents don't have to wait another 15 + years. It is a beautiful place to vacation and we are so glad you chose our home. Thanks Again, Julie

What a great vacation..

  • 4 of 5

My family, a 18month old daughter, 13/17 year old sons and husband had a fantastic vacation stay at PapaBears Den. The cabin was amazing, and the views were outstanding. There was plenty of room, great master BR, fantastic game room that is HUGE and includes pool table, arcade games and wet bar. Kitchen was well supplied and had everything we needed. Wrap around deck offered great space for all. The driveway is steep, and it takes a bit of juggling if you have two cars, but we got the hang of it. House has alarm, great strong doors, and everything was very clean upon our arrival. The owners couldn't have been nicer and were available always for any questions. We even saw a bear on the road in front of the house. This is a great great place in a great location convenient to so much.

Owner's Response: Rick and I are so glad the 5 of you had such a great trip! It's always cool to see a bear. Thank you for taking the time to do a review. We're glad you enjoyed our awesome view. It's my favorite part of Papabearsden.net

A great cabin with a view

  • 5 of 5

Great area and easy to get to. Its a very short drive downtown. The only down fall for us was the shower issue. People downstairs have to come upstairs to shower. And bring towels. We will be back. A lot of people complain about the driveway. No great view is easy to get to. Once you figure it out it pretty simple.

Wonderful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Papa Bears Den! The inside was beautifully done, and we enjoyed the view immensely. The driveway is a bit trickier than most, so just be patient. We enjoyed playing pool while hanging out at the cabin and drinking our morning coffee on the covered porch. We would definitely return to Rick and Julie's cabin again!
