Papa Bears Den stands majestically on Ski Mountain in Gatlinburg TN, and is part of the renowned Chalet Village area. This cabin has access to nearby pools, tennis courts, meeting rooms, and conference center. 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.

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.

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,

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

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!

Awesome Cabin, Great Time!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We were two couples, all early 60's, just getting away for a long weekend, so obviously, at 2900 sq. ft., this place offered us plenty of space. The owners are outstanding. Great communicators, very ready to help you in any way, and just nice people. The cabin was super clean when we arrived. The view is as described... Spectacular!!!! We spent a lot of time on the upper deck visiting with each other, enjoying the view and waving at the people on the trams as they passed by... We really needed a place with Wi-Fi (business-related). Signal was strong throughout the cabin. The juke box was a nice touch... Only used it one night, but served the purpose... We never used the pool table, game table or den with video games, but if you have kids, it's all there waiting to entertain them. Cooked steaks on the electric grill one night... Took a little reading and learning, but the meal was fantastic without all the mess... Watched the Ryder Cup action every morning... Living room TV was great... Great reception, lots of channels... If you've read the other reviews, you know the driveway is steep... But it can be done... For the weak-at-heart, good parking down below across the street... You're a very short drive from the main strip in Gatlinburg... Maybe 5 minutes down the hill...Just know it is conveniently located...Easy to get to restaurants and attractions... Again, everything VERY clean and in good working order... A GREAT place with a GREAT view, and we always had the confidence of knowing that if anything went wrong, we could contact the owners and would get an immediate response...

Rick and Julie what a great cabin! Gala and I enjoyed our stay and the view. Mastered the drive rather quickly as well. Air conditioning worked great and hot tub was wonderful. We have stayed at numerous cabins in the Smokies and Papa Bear Den is now at the top of our list. Juke Box was very entertaining and did a lot of relaxing on the balconies. After using the electric grill at the cabin I now have one on my list to get, grilling was a hit. Loved the location and short trip to town. Haven from Slaving we will return!

The property was good and clean. I have few suggestion for owner. The down stair bedroom and living space was quite humid, you can smell. the owner should consider adding de-humidifier. I turned the fan from auto to ON to control some air circulation. The floor on the pool table need some rework, it make crazy noise when you play pool and person cant sleep in master bedroom. The Parking is also quite tricky, its a free adventure. The property has very good view, we really enjoyed it throughout our stay. Great cabin.

Owner's Response: I'm really glad you enjoyed you stay at our cabin. We will be zoning the heating and cooling to eliminate the air flow problem. This was already a change we felt was necessary. The plank flooring in the pool table area is a little noisy. Luckily our family is usually not playing pool that late so its not problem for our family. Thanks for your helpful comments,
