Great Mountain Views in a 2 Bed/2 Bath cabin only minutes to Gatlinburg
Welcome to our little piece of heaven in the smoky mountains. The home was custom built in the fall of 2017. I realize reviews are very important when searching for a vacation home. I purchased the home in the fall of 2016 and only owned it for 2 months before the forest fires. Our first guest in the new home is 11/18/17, with that said we should start to get more 5 star reviews. I have kept the same house keeper and as you can see from the previous reviews she does a great job. Our home is located on what the locals call the spur. It sits between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. From the main road running between the two towns take Wiley Oakley Road, which is the road that runs up the mountain beside the Gatlinburg Welcome center. We are only a 1/2 mile from the welcome center. This road is well maintained during the winter so you don't have to worry about getting up or down the road. During the spring, summer and fall you can drive down to the welcome center and take the trolley to Gatlinburg and it will bring you back to the welcome center. The fee is less than a dollar per person per trip and is well worth it so you don't have to drive around town for 30 minutes trying to find a parking spot. The home sits in a great location with fantastic mountain views from either of the three decks of our home. This home is very comfortable with 1 King size bedroom and 1 queen size bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. There are 2 full bathrooms, both with a tiled shower / tub and granite vanity tops. The second floor deck is a nice size and has plenty of seating with gorgeous views of the mountains. On the first floor you have the living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry, queen size bedroom & full bathroom with tiled tub/shower and granite vanity top. The Kitchen has everything you need and also has granite counter tops. The kitchen is fully stocked to make a meal in, and it has all stainless steel appliances that were brand new in the fall of 2017 including a dishwasher so you don't have to wash all those dishes while you are on vacation. The living room has cathedral wood ceilings, large ceiling fan, fireplace, flat screen 50" 4k smart TV, DVD player, leather sofa with pull out queen bed and a leather chair. Off the living room is a spacious deck (all three deck floors are composite decking so there is no worry of splinters when walking in your bare feet) with a 4 person hot tub, high top patio table with 4 chairs so the deck railing does not impede your view and char coal grill. Both bedrooms have 32" HD smart TV's, ceiling fans, dresser, closet and luggage rack. All the beds have bed protectors to ensure the ultimate cleanliness. For the kids and adults there is a Air Hockey table for your enjoyment. All the floors in the home are hard wood floors, except in the bathrooms which they are tiled. A few things we did with this cabin to help it be as safe as possible for us and you the guest is that we installed a motion detecting light so if you have to go out to your car in the evening you won't be startled by a bear standing next to your car or even on the deck (it's always a good idea to look out the window before going out just in case there is a bear on the deck or in the driveway). The second thing we did to this cabin was not make the main deck accessible to ground level. We know it is a little inconvenient, but we feel it is well worth the inconvenience. When you are out on the deck enjoying yourself, you don't have to worry about a bear standing next to you when you turn around. The peace of mind that all your family members and friends can be safe out on the deck and you don't have to worry about things like that happening is very soothing.
We want to make it as easy as possible to come to our home. We provide all your towels, wash cloths, bath hand towels, kitchen drying towels, dish cloths, sheets, pillows & comforters. We also provide high efficiency wash and dryer. Lastly we stock the home with a starter pack of bars of soap for each of the bathrooms, a washing machine soap packet, dishwasher packet, a roll of paper towels, a trash bag and a roll of toilet tissue for each bathroom. We also provide a large array of Television channels including HBO & Cinemax, high speed wireless internet and unlimited phone calls to the USA lower 48 states and Canada at no charge. Pay per view and movies rentals from cable are not permitted, however with the free wifi and all the TV's being smart TV's feel free to use your Netflix or any other TV device.
Included in your stay is the Chalet Village owners club access. The closest one is only a 2 minute drive from our home. The owner club has 2 swimming pools, a kiddie pool, fitness room, table tennis, vending machines, playground for the kids as well as a lighted tennis court. The tennis court also has a basketball hoop. All the amenities at the Owners club are included in your stay at absolutely no charge to you the guest.
We feel it is very important to provide each guest with a clean home when you enter. I will personally call each guest upon their arrival to make sure they are completely satisfied with the cleaning of the home, confirm that all the pictures you see on this site is what you see when you walk into the home and make sure there are no problems. I have done this with my condo I have in Myrtle Beach (vrbo # 487318) and I feel this ensures that each guest is completely satisfied when they arrive. If you are not satisfied for some reason we will work on any issue to get it resolved as quickly as possible.
There is NO SMOKING allowed in the home! No pets in the home as well. No exceptions.
I hope you choose to stay in our cabin as we strive to make it a very pleasurable renting experience

We have been coming down to Gatlinburg since 1998, and absolutely love it here. We bought a condo in Myrtle Beach (vrbo #487318) back in 2013 and we loved it there, so we decided to build a place here in the Smoky Mountains as well. We strive to provide all of our guests with a very clean home as we have strict guidelines for our housekeeper. If something is not right we will fix as fast as possible to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible. We want to make renting from us a joyful and pleasurable experience.
Andy purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Andy chose Gatlinburg
We chose this property based on the location, views and ease to get to (especially in the winter months). The location is less than a 5 minute drive to Gatlinburg and less than a 10 minute drive to Pigeon Forge. The views from this home are outstanding from the first floor deck or the second floor deck. The Bedrooms are spacious. The last reason for choosing this property was the driveway. I have stayed at many places in Gatlinburg where I never went back just because of the driveway. This drive is not very long or steep, and it has mostly flat parking at the top.

We had a great time at the cabin. It was a great place to stay and just what we needed. It was nice to get away and enjoy the mountains. The cabin has all you need. We enjoyed eating on the deck and overlooking the mountains. The hot tub was great.
CANNOT wait to stay here again!
We've had many experiences in the Smokys and couldn't wait to help knock off a bucket-list item of family traveling from CA. This cabin was absolutely perfect in every way. The views were stunning. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed to enjoy meals and the location was close to everything we wanted to have easy access. Owners were involved and attentive. Can't wait to visit this Smoky Mountain getaway again!!
Andy was great to work with. The cabin is beautiful. Everything you need. Just a short drive to town
Great owner. Andy was super Cabin was very clean. Everything you need.
Perfect Getaway Location
Besides the fact the cabin was brand new, the location was PERFECT. Having the cabin less than a mile away from the Welcome Center where the Trolley picks up made it super convenient to head into Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. The owner, Andy, was great! He communicated well with us leading up to our trip and even on our day of arrival. Everything was exactly how it was described, I would highly recommend Bear Pad to anyone visiting Gatlinburg!
Another satisfied customers. HAHA. I call every guest prior to their arrival and the day of the their arrival to make sure everything is to our guest satisfaction. That is just one step I take to make sure everything is in top shape. Our location is the reason I built the cabin. It is close to everything and not very far up the mountain 0.55 miles from the welcome center, and still able to have outstanding views. We hope to have you back again soon. You were wonderful guests.
Beautiful Chalet and great service
We enjoyed our stay! It is brand new, with thoughtful touches (i.e. soft comfortable bedding and towels, night lights in the bathrooms, laundry baskets, great kitchen equipment). Very clean. Beautiful views from both balconies. Our kids loved the air hockey table! Highly recommend!
I am happy you had a wonderful stay and enjoyed all the little touches we have included in our cabin. We have enough kitchen equipment to make Thanksgiving dinner and more, we probably have too much. The views are gorgeous from our property and I am glad you enjoyed them as well. We look forward to having you back again soon.
Great place to stay for exploring the are
The cabin was very clean and comfortable. We have two younger children with us and there was plenty of room for them to play inside when the weather was not cooperating. We didn't need one but there is definitely room in the bedrooms for a pack & play. We were impressed with the size of the bedrooms, especially the one on the second floor and the views from the balconies are beautiful
The location is very convenient to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg/Smoky Mountains. We had no problem with the road up to the cabin, even when it snowed a bit.
There was nothing at the cabin that needed attention during out stay, but when we contacted Andy with various questions he was quick to respond and very helpful.
I would stay here again if we're ever in the area and I would recommend it to anyone.
Ripley's Aquarium is less than a 5 minute drive from our driveway.
