Sevierville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Voted # 1 most romantic cabin by New York Magazine

'Bear Naked' is a one bedroom cabin that is secluded, yet close to all attractions in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. After passing a majestic mountain view, you will drive around a curve and 'Bear Naked' will come into view.

The cabin has rocking chairs for your enjoyment on the front porch. A huge beautiful Blue Spruce adorns the front of the cabin. After walking through a red welcome door, you will enter the living room. In this room there is a comfortable couch for reading or viewing the surround sound TV. There is a new hickory Amish rocking chair in the living room for your pleasure.. The sofa opens into a queen bed for extra sleeping options.

There is a full kitchen with everything you will need if you want to cook at 'home'.

The bath and bedroom have luxury linens. Upon entering the bedroom the first thing you will see is the red, heart shaped jacuzzi. The bed has double pillow-tops for your relaxation. The bed, dining table, and coffee table are made of cane and hickory wood, very beautiful.

The main highlight of course is the private, screened in balcony with a large hot-tub. This is a very private area so you can relax and enjoy the mountain foliage.

The cabin is always immaculate. I make sure it is cleaned to perfection.

Keywords: Escape and relax as you create memories!. No waiting in line to check in, go directly to your 'cabin' Our perfect cabin for each and every individual guest. WELCOME

About Charlene Bratcher

I, Charlene, have visited the Great Smoky Mountain National Park since I was a child. I introduced the mountains to my husband, Bruce and daughter, Ansleigh. We have vacationed in Gatlinburg, several times a year, for the last 13 years. During the last 5 years we have actively searched for a cabin. God blessed us with the perfect cabin and even a rental cabin in September, 2009. We were also blessed with jobs, I am a teacher and Bruce is working for with the National Park service. Our daughter loves her school. We have a boxer, Daisy, who even loves the beautiful walks, and especially the wildlife. In 2010 we were blessed with another cabin 'Bear Paws'. 'Bear Paws has a majestic view. See vrbo listing # 300489

Charlene Bratcher purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Charlene Bratcher chose Tennessee

We chose the location of our rental, 'Bear Naked', and our home, because of its close proximity to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We are minutes from Dollywood, dinner theatres, and other family oriented activities in Pigeon Forge. We are just as close to Gatlinburg, where we enjoy shopping, browsing and dining out. If you are looking for a more commercial area, Sevierville is equally as close, as this is where I work. There are hundreds of free activities in the Great Smoky Mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is very unique because it is individualized for YOU. We want to share our happiness of owning the cabin, with YOU. We go the extra mile to insure a wonderful experience for YOU. The cabin will be personalized as YOU wish. If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion just contact me. I can have a birthday cake, balloons and the cabin decorated prior to your visit. For honeymooners, champagne, and roses can already be on the red, heart-shaped jacuzzi when you arrive. If you want to surprise a special someone, a bed of roses would be so fragrant and beautiful. A snack basket or fruit basket can be waiting for you to enjoy upon arrival. If you are anxious to get to the cabin or too tired to stop for dinner, an assortment of breads, cheeses, and sandwich meats can be already in the cabin for you. There is a wonderful Amish bakery and sandwich shop nearby, with lots of homemade bread, cheeses and other goodies that I could have whatever YOU want for a meal. If you would just like dessert and coffee, that can also be available. Use your imagination, let me do the shopping and decorating for YOU. We want your experience in our cabin to be one that you will remember, and hopefully can become a tradition.

Sample Pricing: Dozen roses or mixed bouquet($40) Cake for any occasion ($35) Champagne ($35) Meat/cheese/bread/pickles/condiments/tray ($50) Fruit tray ($30) Decorated with banners/mylar balloons ($15) Mixed snack tray (ex: chips, cookies, crackers, dips, etc..)($25) candles for romantic candle light dinner ($10) bed of fresh fragrant rose petals ($25) chocolate covered strawberries, ($25)

Guestbook comments from the owner

could not have asked for anything better. It was just as perfect as we remember from being here last year! The view and the rocking chairs were our favorite part. Thanks for everything. We will definitely be back next year to celebrate 3 years of marriage.

It was great, very secluded, quite, and didn't have to deal with people it was our get away from the crazy busy lives we lead. Hot tub on the porch is very private you feel like you are outside but yet have priavcy. The bed was a bit uncomfortable to me but all in all it was a great stay! Will definitely come back next time we are in the mountains!

We can't say enough good things about our stay with Charlene and Bruce. Her and her husband are the best people we have ever met. Our cabin was just perfect. We loved the location,it was so peaceful. We so much enjoyed the pool and game room too. Close to Gatlinburg.We miss being there everyday. We plan on coming back next year. We will not ever think of staying anywhere else . Thank you both for making us feel at home. Can't wait to come back. We stayed at Bear Naked. Just perfect loved everything. Ten stars in our book.

Quiet, Pleasant Get-Away!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a reasonably priced cabin in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge area and decided on Bear Naked. What a cute cabin! It was just enough space for the two of us and was very clean. We did not get to try out the hot tub or the jacuzzi. The kitchen was well stocked and the refrigerator was very clean.

Thank you for a lovely stay!

Wonderful little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a birthday get away at "Bear Naked". Charlene and Bruce were wonderful! So welcoming and sweet. The cabin was just perfect! Very well kept place, with everything you need. Only 15-20 minutes from Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. We will definitely be returning!

Nice people but not impressed with the cabin

  • 2 of 5

The property owners were so kind and helpful to work with. The location of the property was nice. Unfortunately the cabin was not what we expected. I was more than willing to pay a cleaning fee because I felt that would guarantee a clean cabin. But there were lots of bugs in the cabin. The mattress has a reddish/brown stain on it, which really grossed us out. There were bugs crawling all throughout the hot tub. The bug issue may just be normal due to the cabin being in the woods but it wasn't what we were looking for, especially for the price. We would not go back to this cabin unfortunately.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you liked the location of our cabins. I also appreciate your acknowledging our hospitality. We try very hard to make sure every guest has a great stay every time, as we have constant repeat guest. Bear Naked is secluded,, in a wooded area, the hot tub is on the balcony that is wooded all around. All cabins have carpenter bees, especially in May. We live in a log cabin and have carpenter bees. I don't understand how bugs would be in a hot-tub with 100 degree water? Our hot tubs are drained and cleaned for each guest. We have never experienced that before. I know you were only here for 2 nights, but if you had let us know of any problem we would be there immediately. There were guest in the cabin, the day before and after your stay, as BEAR NAKED is a favorite cabin.
