3BR/3BA with Beautiful Mountain View, community Pool, Pool table, Hot Tub, Jacuz
About Donna Jarnagin
We live in Tennessee and love visiting The Great Smoky Mountains! Our dream for the last 30 years has been to own a place in the mountains where our family could retreat. When we found Bear Den, we knew this was the place. And you will too! It has everything and more for a family or a couple to enjoy a peaceful, romantic and fun get away to the Mountains. The view is incredible!
Donna Jarnagin purchased this Chalet in 2014
Why Donna Jarnagin chose Gatlinburg
We have visited the Smoky Mountains for most of our lives, taking vacations here every year! When we saw the view, it took our breath away! We particularly like the Cobbly Nob area because it is the 'higher end' side of Gatlinburg and being right across the road from the Great Smoky National Park, it is quiet and private. The property is easy access to Hwy 321 just 10 miles from Downtown Gatlinburg.
What makes this Chalet unique
The View, the view, the view! In addition, it has a private hot tub and private MB jacuzzi. There are three outdoor swimming pools in the development and a nice tennis court. The Greenbriar entrance to the National park is less than 5 miles from the front door. It is a great place to enjoy hiking, swimming, picnicking and fishing. It is a quality home with everything a family could want for a fun and comfortable family vacation.

This cabin is great for a family that likes to cook and have lot of activities with plenty of games
The check in was fast and the cabin was nestled in up in the mountains with plenty of views while still having the feel of warm hideaway. The experience with the staff was very pleasing and when I needed help they was there and fixed the problem. I would recommend this cabin to the one that is looking for a great location and homely feel with all the amenities.
Beautiful location! House was accommodating for all our needs. Living area was spacious and pool table was an added bonus of fun. Would stay again!!
Cleanest place I’ve ever stayed
Start with all the positive. It is by far the cleanest VRBO I’ve ever rented! Plenty of plates, pots, pans and kitchen essentials. Having a TV in each room was fun for our kids. The wrap around deck is lovely. Hot tub was a big hit and spotless! Donna was very easy to work with and answered all of our questions promptly. Check in and out was very easy.
The drawbacks were the location. I had read that it was on narrow, winding roads but wasn’t prepared for how narrow (single lane really) and steep! We drive a van, a small car would do better. But it was so steep that there’s really no yard for kids to play in and though you could walk to the pool the walk back is all VERY uphill. The pool table was great but it’s about 2 feet from the window so hard to play in limited space. Hot tub was great but it ran all night long and is very loud. I did call the rental office and they said that’s just how hot tubs are. It was loud enough to wake me up even wearing ear plugs. The main entrance is very narrow. Maybe 24 inches? We couldn’t get our cooler through and if you are a bigger person, it would be a tight squeeze. The deck was great but the photos showed full length lounge chairs which weren’t there. Overall the house is nice, though smaller than what the pictures portrayed. I wouldn’t stay here again just because of the location. Way too steep for us!
Everything we hoped for!
We have been coming to the Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge area for well over 10 years and this has been the best cabin we have stayed at! The view was absolutely incredible, especially the view from the fire pit! We all loved the hot tub! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a few meals when we stayed in to enjoy the views. Close to everything but the cabin has a very secluded feeling. The roads are no problem! So many places to sit and enjoy the outside on the wrap around deck! The hot tub was hot and was so relaxing! Great WiFi and awesome hot water showers! You couldn’t ask for a better owner to deal with. She answered all my questions! We can’t wait to come back again!
Thank you Donna for all your help
We had a great time in the area but my family and I have a couple of complaints. I was a little disappointed because the website said check in was 3pm and check out was 11 am. After driving from Missouri, we got to the office only to discover they were closed and were not going to drop keys off until 4pm. Once we got the paperwork, we discovered check out was at 10 am. The bedrooms were smaller than they looked but had plenty of room. The house has a staircase that is pretty steep. My 74 year old mother had trouble getting up and down them. The bedrooms are on the ground level and the kitchen/living area is upstairs. The road to the cabin is very narrow and would not recommend bringing a larger vehicle.
The property is very clean and has one of the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen. The process to secure the property was smooth and Donna kept in communication and even threw out some recommendations! My family and I enjoyed the location of the cabin, not too far from towns to go and enjoy them but far enough to be in a rustic setting.
Overall, we had a great stay and a very fun vacation!
Great cabin getaway
The cabin was perfect for our family of 4! It has a nice layout that worked well for our family. The upstairs kitchen and family rooms area provides a great view of the mountains. Our family will definitely plan to stay here again in the future!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree that the view is quite special. We try to make certain that our guests have the items they need for a perfect vacation get away and at a price that is less than most other cabins are with the same amenities.
Thank you for your glowing review! It helps others! Donna and Ted
We are located on a private, dead end drive. Greenbriar Trail head is located only 5 miles from Bear Den. It has some great day hikes with beautiful spots along the river and streams. A must do for sure.
When our family stays, we love to frequent The Best Italian Restaurant located in the heart of Downtown Gatlinburg. You can park your car and walk to all the shops. There is a chair lift close by as well as a gondolier to take you up to Ober Gatlinburg if you want more touristy things to do. The Ripleys Aquarium is always a fun thing to do for the kids.
Foxfilre Ziplines is not too far and a lot of family fun as well!
