It is only minutes from both Ober Gatlinburg, with exciting snow skiing, ice skating and shopping, and all the entertainment of downtown Gatlinburg, the Great Smoky Mountain National Park or Pigeon Forge.

When you enter this amazing three story log cabin, you'll start your journey walking onto the bottom deck. Here you'll find a view of the mountains and Mt. Le Conte, and you can wave at the folks on the silent tram as it passes by. In the spring, fall or after a rain, you can hear Holy Branch Creek meandering through the mountains. Walking inside you'll find a bedroom with a king bed, dresser and a 32' flat screen TV. The second room down is a television room with a 32' flat screen TV, PlayStation 2 with 30 games, and a DVD player. Heading up the stairs you'll enter the magnificent great room with the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Looking up you'll see a staggering cathedral ceiling. In the living room, you'll enjoy the river stone gas fireplace, the new bear/moose/canoe printed sofa, chair, a 50' Plasma TV, Blu Rray DVD player. In the kitchen/dining room, there is a bay window for you to take in the amazing view. You'll find plenty of space at the large table which seats 7-8 people with 2 chairs, a wide 5' bench, a wide 3' bench, and extra seating is available with 2 stools at the bar. The kitchen is fully stocked with refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, and much more! There's a door that leads to the upper deck, which features 6 chairs, a table, and a new gas grill. The deck wraps around the corner and there you'll find a new 5 person hot tub and stairs leading to a small yard in the back of the cabin. Back inside, the main level features 2 bedrooms. The first bedroom has a queen bed, 32' flat screen TV, night stand with drawers, and closet. There is also a laundry closet with a new full size ironing board, iron, washer and dryer. The second bedroom is the master and features a king bed, gas fireplace, closet, built-in shelves, large Jacuzzi tub, 37' flat screen TV, DVD player, and a private door out to the deck and the hot tub. Between the two bedrooms, is the first of two baths. This one has a double vanity, hair dryer, and standard bathtub with shower. Once we move upstairs, it's time for Fun! It has an 8' pool table! You'll find a four person table for games, wet bar, corner mounted 32' flat screen TV. There is also a full bath with shower on the upstairs level. All TV's have DirecTV service.

About the Owner

My husband and I recently purchased and fully furnished this in February of 2012. We have worked hard to make this an enjoying place for everyone. We hope you love it as much as we do. Our sons also enjoy coming here. My oldest just got married and he and his wife love it here too. We just finished the new flooring up and plan on doing the same downstairs too. The lower level now has its own heating and cooling thermostat. We have had professionals come in and take care of the wall and landscaping giving this the clean curb appeal that all will enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin was clean and exactly as the pictures show it. The fall colors of the changing leaves were picture perfect. The cabin is pretty far up the mountain but only 5 minutes from the strip in Gatlinburg. The National Park was also very close. This was a great deal. Maybe next time we won't go during the Bama vs UT game lol. This was copied from my flipkey site.

Family meeting spot

Cabin was beautiful and spacious! We met there to stay with family from KY and the game room upstairs was perfect! We didn't want to leave the cabin, but we had to go take advantage of everything to do in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge! The cabin was very convenient to everything. We will stay there again! Owners were great too!

simply the best!

Just returned from our stay at papa bears den! Stayed a lot of places in the mountains and this is our new favorite. Views are amazing owners constantly making new upgrades, and it is right by downtown gatlinburg, and a great shortcut that is 14 minutes to pigeon forge. We had no problem with the driveway in a 4runner. Just make the turn and backup. Its as simple as that. The gameroom is great and loved the owners! Very responsive and look forward to staying with them again.

We are glad you found the driveway as easy to manage as we have. It's easy when you know the trick. We can't wait for you to return. Thanks for taking the time to give us a very nice review too! Thanks again,

Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is our second visit to this wonderful home. The home is immaculate and the owners keep everything up to day. The view is spectacular. The tram ride was wonderful to the top of the mountain. It is a home away from home with a pool table, juke box, tv, and especially the hot tub. It was wonderful. This is a great and comfortable getaway.

Gorgeous Cabin

  • 5 of 5
The photos just don't do it justice -- the rooms are large, everything is provided, and the views are outstanding. We were impressed with its newness and the cleanliness, and the kids loved the "bear" theme that runs throughout. Great place to unwind at the end of a day. As others have mentioned, the driveway is steep, with a hair-pin turn, but we just parked at the bottom and had no problems. Would gladly return!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you and your family had a great time! We have been trying to get better pictures that truely represent the large rooms, but the camera just doesn't do the place justice. We have been told that many times. We can't wait to have you back. I feel like we are good friends already. Thanks,
Julie

great times!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time. We desperately needed some time off and this was the perfect place! The scenery was beautiful. The cabin was so comfortable and felt like home. Although I had a tough time getting my husband to leave it he did finally venture out with me. The owners were great too. Thankyou so much for sharing your home with us. We will have memories for a life time. We will be back!

A vacation destination in itself

  • 5 of 5
This home is a beautiful mountain retreat. We enjoyed our time in the house as much as hiking, riding zip lines, and shopping in town. The home is clean and very well maintained. It has everything a family could want, from the practical (every kitchen appliance/utensil you would need) to the fun (jukebox, hot tub and satellite TV). Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and comfortable family spaces as well. The driveway is not as big a challenge as some have indicated. The roads and driveway are in a mountain community, not an average suburb, steep inclines are the norm!

Things guests should know:
There are a lot of stairs. The home has three levels, one bedroom and a TV room on the lower level, two bedrooms (including the master), kitchen, TV room and a full bath on the main level. The upper level includes a bar, poker table, pool table, and the second full bath. Three flights of stairs between the lower bedroom and the nearest bath.
Bring towels for the hot tub, as our towels didn't dry overnight before morning showers.

Owner's Response: Rick and I are very glad you enjoyed our home! We are always hoping the house has just as many memories as the rest of the trip. We do hear that the favorite part of the trip was Papa Bears Den..Mostly of the parents with smaller children because of the tram. It's nice to know we made a good impression on the teenagers too! We know too well about the teenagers growing up, and how difficult it is to spend time with them. Thanks for taking the time to review the cabin. We hope you come back very soon!
