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.
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.
What a wonderful stay at Bear Paws cabin. Great cabin and beautiful scenery. Also saw a bear.
My family had a great weekend in Gatlinburg and really enjoyed staying here. The four of us hit the sights but came back here to relax at night. The kids loved the pool table, ping pong table and board games. Surprisingly my son didn't play the Wii but one was available. The hot tub was great to relax after all day hiking or on the strip. The balcony may be the hidden gem of this place. Go out and watch the sun rise over the mountain. There was something for everyone here. Easily could hold 8 or more people. I look forward to coming back annually!
Perfect place to stay in the mountains. Great for bear watching on upper decks and beautiful place in general. Personally thought it was the best place to be to see bears as some walked up the driveway and around the house! Super comfortable with plenty of space for everyone who stays.
I spent a week here with family and loved it! It is roomy, situated in the in the quiet mountain area above Gaitlinburg, and a short drive from many activities/venues. I am ready to go back!
Wonderful wonderful place to see bears! We saw no less than 2 bears each day in close proximity to the chalet. Lots of good pics. Chalet was nice and clean. Very prompt and pleasant meeting Rebecca when we had a maintenance issue. We enjoyed the game area too when we just wanted to hang out there. Everyone had plenty of room and could still be together when we wanted to. Would definitely recommend this chalet to a friend and will be back again. Thank you for making our summer vacation one of the best places yet! Angie Grogan and family.
We loved staying here! After a long day of crowded streets and lots of fun, it was great to come back to peace and quiet. The beds were comfy and everything was in working order. The kids loved having their own bathroom and floor. The hottube worked great and was definitely needed after long days of walking around Gatlinburg. This home was a great "home away from home."
Fun for all ages with go-carting, in-door laser tag, and video gaming arcades for the kids; and hundreds of shops offering quilts, antiques, and a wide range of local shops with arts, crafts, and collectibles that make the days long and the stories even better. When evening falls, there are numerous options for entertainment from musicals, to magic, to shindigs and down home country fun.
