We had 3 generations staying for an extended weekend to attend my neice's wedding and our party of 13 had a wonderful time staying in Papa Bear Lodge! The cabin is really rustic & cute. It was apptly named as it is decorated with lots of bears. It is exactly what we had hoped for including a beautiful view of the colorful mountains. (All I kept saying all weekend was, "It's SOOOOO pretty here!" Do the locals ever get used to seeing that beauty?) Because we were there during peak leaf changing season the traffic in Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge was crazy busy so you must leave early if you plan to arrive on time for any activities. For some of us, our favorite activity was the zipline tour we did out near Hartford, TN, about an hour's drive from Gatlinburg. ( I noticed after we'd already booked our tour on-line that there are other ziplines closer but we enjoyed the sights as we drove there, so no biggy.) The times we had questions for the owners, they were very helpful. We had plenty of room and parking, the kids enjoyed the game room downstairs, and we all agree that we would not hesitate to stay at Papa Bear Lodge again.
We spent 4 wonderful days in the cabin and couldnt have asked for a nicer getaway. The cabin was plenty of room for us and stocked with everything we could have ever needed! Beds were awesome, my daughter wanted to take hers home with us. The owners were awesome to work with. They are so right, the view is amazing. Sitting on the back deck and watching the sun rise and set was incredible. We were close to Gatlinburg and Pigeon forge which made it very convenient. We would definitely recommend this cabin or any of the owners cabins as they are beautiful!!!! We will be back
Our family of 4 generations recently stayed at Papa bear Lodge, and loved every minute of it! The cabin is secluded, but yet still in a convenient location. Just minutes from Gatlinburg and/or Pigeon Forge! If you're looking for a great place to stay in the area, do not hesitate to stay here!
Our family's experience at Papa Bear's cabin was fantastic!! The cabin's location was perfect!!!
Located on a mountain top over looking theGreat Smoky National Park, City of Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg it is only 2 miles to the City of Pigeon Forge and 4 miles to intercity of Gatlinburg saving us time with kids and entertainment!! LIFE SAVER !!
My husband & I especially loved the complete wall of windows in the cabin over looking the national park!! We enjoyed sharing precious memories of genealogy sitting in this specious cabin's family room while burning fire in there huge wood burning creek stone fire place. Seeing The snow capped Smoky Mountains from the kitchen windows in the morning was a blessing as well!!
So relaxing !!
The basement was a getaway for our teenage kids as well. They enjoyed the full sized pool table and large game room.
Each of us also enjoyed the nice sized hot tub !!
This cabin spoiled us!!! We will be coming back for years!!! Including upcoming summer vacation in May.
I suggest if your looking at beautiful cabin, book it ASAP.
DATES go QUICK!!!!
PAPA BEAR you got us hooked!!
We really enjoyed our stay at Papa Bear. We had 9 adults and it fit our needs perfectly. Each family was able to sleep on their own floor of the house. The 2 decks are just perfect and hot tub is wonderful at night. We brought all of our food with us and the kitchen was furnished nicely. We were missing a few little things, can opener and kitchen towel) we ended up finding a kitchen towel draped outside on the deck later in our stay. We didn't have much dish soap but made due. The location couldn't have been better. We were no more than 20 mins to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. And the view was just stunning. We hiked Alum Cave and it took about 39 minutes to get there. So nice to come home and sit in the hot tub. It was so quiet and peaceful. We can not wait to go back.
We recently stayed at the Papa Bear cabin and were very pleased with the accommodations. The views of the mountains from not only the deck but the inside of the cabin are truly remarkable. We had three generations staying at the cabin and each one had fun and could spread out and relax with all the room in this cabin. The owners Becky and John were very nice and easy to work with. We have stayed at other places in Gatlinburg before but due to the size of our group this year we had to get a larger cabin and with all you get for the price of the rental I don't see how you could get a better deal. I have recommended this cabin to my friends and we will definitely be coming back.
