Chalet Village Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed, 2 1/2 Baths (Sleeps up to 8) 2,900 Sq. Ft.

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 recently purchased and fully furnished this 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 just got married and he and his wife love it here too. We just finished the new flooring up and plan on doing the same downstairs too. The lower level now has its own heating and cooling thermostat. We have 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.

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!

Great Cabin, Great View. Family had a blast

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed the cabin. Location was close to town but still felt very private. Really enjoyed the view, the hot tub and playing video games and pool with the family after a long day. Spacious cabin with everything you need.

Very peaceful. What an amazing view!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved every minute. Being surrounded by this land is very special. The kids loved the music upstairs. We had nightly performances and lip sink battles. Perfect location to everything. If staying in this area I would give this home serious consideration. We will be back for sure!!!!!
