Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Secluded Cabin-Spectacular Views

No matter the season, Bear Pause provides a great retreat for you and your family. Breathtaking views highlight this secluded mountainside getaway 1.5 miles from charming Gatlinburg. Snuggle up by the stone fireplace on the soft leather sofa or comfy recliner and enjoy a DVD or your favorite TV show on the new flatscreen television.

The expansive windows in the upstairs loft/gameroom allow you a picturesque mountain view as you play pool on a professional quality billiards table. At night, lie in bed and watch the twinkling lights of Gatlinburg and Ski Mountain, or just take in the view from the outdoor Jacuzzi. Each bedroom has a flatscreen, satellite TV and a DVD player for watching your favorite movies...but you may prefer the stars overhead to the ones on the screen.

The cabin has full broadband Internet access.

Dear Jim,

Just wanted to say.....WOW! Your cabin provided the perfect "home" for our vacation! The cabin was beautiful and just great to come back to after a day of hiking, rafting, sightseeing. We really enjoyed the hot tub, view and pool table! The road to the cabin made me a little nervous but luckily we only had to pass by 3 cars during the week.

The location was great too - just what we were looking for. Easy enough to get to the park but close to dowtown Gatlinburg. We really enjoyed a restaurant that just opened earlier this year that is close by on 321 - Ogles Brick Oven Italian - just in case you are back to enjoy your cabin.

I hope we have the opportunity to rent your beautiful cabin again!

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent 5 nights at this beautiful cabin. It was beyond perfect for a family of 5 needing down time. Very clean and convienient to Gatlinburgs main strip...walking distance! Easy trip Down the mountain..great exercise walking back UP :) The hot tub on deck, gas grill, pool table, Dish TV, surround sound, and of course 2 visits by a bear! Perfect touch...almost staged. He wondered on the deck looked around and wandered back up the mountain. We will definately be back !!!!! Mark, Linda and Family

Cozy Cabin!

  • of 5
My husband and I recently spent a few days at this cozy little cabin for his predeployment leave. We were looking for something private but close enough for a quick drive to town and "Bear Pause" fit the bill! It's perfect for a couple but also large enough for more guests since there are 2 bedrooms. It has all the amenities needed (flat screen tv, electric fireplace, full kitchen) to make it feel like a home away from home! It snowed while we were there and it was so cozy to sit in the hottub with the flakes falling! And we were lucky enough to see 2 bears during our stay!!! It looked like a mama and her baby! This cabin was everything we had hoped for and we will definitely be back again! Thank you, Jim and Robin, for your hospitality and friendliness! Sincerely, The Bolens

Wonderful Birthday Surprise!

  • 5 of 5
My husband surprised me with a getaway for my birthday, it was wonderful. The cabin was beautiful, clean, and centrally located to everything. We had the most relaxing time sitting by the fireplace, using the hot tub, just hanging out and enjoying the gorgeous view. My husband chose the perfect cabin and I couldn't have been happier, it was a great birthday. I would highly recommend this cabin to those looking to visit the Gatlinburg area.

This cabin is AWESOME!

  • of 5
We had a wonderful stay! The cabin's location lets you experience the mountains while being only minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. It was spacious, well-equipped, and comfortable. However, while we were there the Wi-Fi was down so we didn't have Internet access. I would highly recommend this cabin for anyone wanting a quiet retreat only minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg.

Truly lovely!!

Our family had the most wonderful time at Jim and Robin's beautiful cabin! We were married in Gatlinburg 19 years ago and we came back to celebrate our anniversary and show our kids where we got married. We mostly were hiking in the Smoky Mountains and the cabin was a perfect place to return to after a day of long hiking. We had most of our meals there and enjoyed the hot tub after a long day on the trails. Jim and Robin are only a phone call away and most accommodating. A lovely home! Many thanks!!!

We could not have been happier with our road trip out to Tennessee! We found this cabin online, and I booked it without having had any knowledge of it. My parents met up with us, and we could not have had a better time bonding.

The cabin was huge, and we had no trouble sharing space with having four guests. Even the kitchen table had enough space to enjoy board game nights. The cabin was clean, beds were comfortable, and the atmosphere was great. The cabin was decorated with so much charm you probably won't want to go back home...

We even brought our pups along for the trip, and they were relaxed and had their tails wagging the whole time. There was plenty of roadways to walk them, and they loved their time in the mountains, too!

We recommend this cabin to anyone who is looking to visit the mountains of Tennessee!
