About the property

4 Bed/ 4 Bath Minutes From Downtown Gatlinburg

Bear Paws - Located just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Lodge and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. 'Bear Paws' is about 3 miles from downtown Gatlinburg in the Chalet Village community.

The large wooded lot provides excellent beauty and noise is practically non-existent in this area. The chalet is a beautiful 3 story modified A-Frame with 3 full levels. You will enjoy 2 wood burning fireplaces ( 1 in the main living room and 1 one in the rec. room). 4 private bedrooms to accomodate 8 guests comfortably. There are 2 bedrooms on the main level and 2 bedrooms upstairs. 1 full bath on each level. The lower level has a huge rec. room with pool table, ping pong table, plenty of lounge seating, cable tv and a wood burning firplace.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary appliances including stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwashwer, microwave, coffee maker, toaster etc. All cook ware and plate ware is provided. Towels and linens are provided as well. All you need to supply are the groceries. (Or skip the cooking while you are on vacation and enjoy one of the fantastic restaurants in downtown Gatlinburg).

Just out back and tucked under a covered gazebo, is the 4 - 6 seater hot tub to soak your cares away after a busy day.

About 2 miles away is Ober Gatlinburg, a beautiful ski resort with excellent ski slopes, a large indoor ice skating rink, restarurants, lounges and even a bear zoo. The aeirial tram to Ober Gatlinburg takes you directly to the heart of downtown in 15 minutes and can be seen from the chalet as it passes overhead.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rebecca Helton answered my questions when I first called, made me feel comfortable, and made the booking process on-line very easy. Family really enjoyed the hot tub, ping pong and pool tables. Dining table with eight chairs accommodated our group perfectly. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, flatware, pots & pans, etc. Appreciated having a starting supply of toilet tissue, soaps, paper towels, etc. Very convenient having a washer and dryer, and an ice maker in the refrigerator. A generous supply of towels, etc was appreciated. We had plenty of blankets and pillows. Light Switch labeling was a convenience which eliminated frustration. Loved the deck to sit in the rockers and watch the Trams go up and down the mountain. We were thrilled to see a Mama Bear with four cubs enjoying the lush green lawn next door for a few minutes about 6:45 p.m. on Friday April 1st. Overall we had a wonderful visit at the Chalet although the trip up and down the mountain was winding and got more narrow the higher we went, but the road was in good shape - it was just more narrow than we were use to.

Cabin in Mountains - Away from it all

  • 4 of 5

The house offered everything we needed. The road to the house is narrow and winding but you are in the mountains. Just a few minutes to downtown Gatlinburg. We planned our daily outings to last several hours so we didn't have to make multiple daily trips to and from the cabin. Overall the house was pretty clean. Working with Rebecca Helton was great. Would definitely recommend it to others and would consider renting it again if go back to that area. We did experience daily visits from black bears, mainly cubs but not aggressive.

All and more

  • 5 of 5

Great stay. Had a bit of an adventure with the local bear. He came up to the hot tub, and gave us something to talk about after he left. Beds were comfortable and the view was great. The place was clean and well kept and everything worked. It was a great stay and a great adventure for me and my family. Thanks so much.

Great Vacation

We spent the weekend here with our family and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bear Paws. It was exactly as described and very clean. I would recommend this cabin to anyone.

Family friendly, plenty of room to spread out and gameroom was a hit with the grandsons.

  • 4 of 5

The house was large and gave us plenty of room to spread out. Kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals. Setting was beautiful.

The only fault I found was the lack of lighting, several of the lamps and light light fixtures that were there were missing bulbs or burnt out. We did manage to find where the bulbs were stored and were able to replace. Even though the light switches were labeled, it was a bit of a challenge to locate.

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a long weekend with family and it was fantastic! The cabin was ample spaced for the 10 of us. The kids had plenty of room to run and play. We enjoyed snow tubing, the sights of Gatlinburg, and a drive through the forest for as long as we could go.

It's a great space in a great setting. Make your reservation today!
