With 2,300 square feet of space to spread out, everyone can feel comfortable at this Gatlinburg cabin. Curl up on the sofas in front of the crackling fireplace in the living room to chat, read a book, or sip Gatlinburg wine together. Downstairs, the rec room welcomes you to play air hockey, arcade classics, and board games. Plus, there’s a big screen TV with a streaming device and a DVD player for movie nights!

Outdoors, enjoy sitting among the trees in the lounge area, rocking chairs, or the bubbly hot tub. There’s even an outdoor table for mealtimes in the fresh mountain air. At night, the deck string lights add to the enchanting atmosphere at this cabin rental in Gatlinburg, TN. Hungry? Fire up the gas grill for cookouts or grab a quick bite from the fully equipped kitchen. There’s also a quaint dining area in the home.

At night, enjoy a hot shower before nodding off to dreamland in a plush king-size bed or queen-size sleeper sofa. Each bedroom at this Smoky Mountain cabin rental has a TV for added entertainment, and guests will have access to high-speed Wi-Fi to stay connected with loved ones back home. This vacation home in Gatlinburg also provides a washer and dryer, a flat, paved driveway plus easier roads to the cabin, a convenient location to downtown attractions — including Ober Gatlinburg — and seasonal mountain views. 

Living Room
Open concept and welcoming to all guests, the living room at this Gatlinburg cabin rental features 2 plump sofas, a loveseat, and a roomy ottoman to prop up your feet or sit more people. Large windows frame the trees outside and let in natural light while they’re at it. 

For entertainment, flip on the big screen TV. If it’s chilly outside, you can light a fire in the gas fireplace, which pairs perfectly with hot cocoa or glasses of wine. Lamps around the space also add to those cozy cabin vibes!

Ready to eat? After whipping up something tasty in the fully equipped kitchen, you will be! This charming log cabin in the Smokies offers a convenient space to cook and store treats and drinks while on your Gatlinburg vacation, saving you dollars on dollars. 

Stainless steel appliances plus pots and pans, dishes, glasses, cutlery, and more are all available, so you don’t have to worry about packing your car with weighty cookware. All you need to bring are ingredients for family recipes and your favorite snacks and cocktail mixes.

Dining Area
Nestled into the kitchen space is the quaint dining table at this cabin rental in Gatlinburg. Enjoy meals, dessert with coffee, midnight snacks, and late-night drinks on your Smoky Mountain getaway. Plus, this space is handy for setting up a temporary homeschool or workstation as needed, playing board or card games together, or dabbling in a few arts and crafts projects with all your free time!

Rec Room
For more fun and games at your Chalet Village cabin, venture to the game room that features a modern arcade unit with all the classics, a cool air hockey table, and a media space for movie nights — with a big screen TV, a Roku 3 (streaming device), and a DVD player. There’s also a Bluetooth-accessible soundbar in case you want to pump up the party jams while knocking the puck into the goal, claiming the highest scores, and dancing the night away!

When it’s time to hit the hay after whitewater rafting in the Smokies, hiking to waterfalls in the national park, or shopping all day, you’ll appreciate a comfy bedroom to call it a night. There are 3 bedrooms — each with a king-size bed and a flatscreen TV — at this pet-friendly cabin rental in Gatlinburg. 

With 3 full bathrooms in the home, enjoy a hot shower before slipping into your pajamas. Get cozy under the covers and flip on the TV for entertainment or switch on the bedside lamps to read for a while. There are also 2 queen sleepers for added sleeping space. 

Outdoor Spaces
Fire up the gas grill for a fun cookout on your family vacation or mountain retreat with friends at your Gatlinburg cabin rental. Set the outdoor table for meals in nature, beautiful with the daytime treescape or glowing string lights at night. Seasonal mountain views are best seen in winter and offer a glimpse of the Smoky Mountains from your semi-private rental cabin. Fun fact: there are regular bear sightings at this particular Gatlinburg vacation rental, so don’t forget your best camera!

Along the decks, you’ll find plenty of rockers to sway away your worries and cares with a jar of Ole Smoky Moonshine. When you want to relax, change into your swimsuit and hop in the massaging bubbles of the hot tub. Ready to head into town? Take 1 step from this Gatlinburg cabin onto the flat, paved driveway (with room for a trailer and parking for 4), pile into the cars, and head along flat, paved roads into town — another convenience at A Bear’s Pause!

Other Amenities
Tap into the free Wi-Fi that runs at high speed to keep you connected easily. Toss loads into the washer/dryer as needed, especially useful for accidental spills or sweaty days enjoying outdoor activities in the Smoky Mountains. And you’ll have keyless entry for a simple, quick check-in and checkout right at the cabin.

Perhaps most importantly, this Gatlinburg cabin is pet friendly! That means your fur babies don’t have to stay behind with a sitter or boarding facility. They get to come along for an adventure with you! A Bear’s Pause is the perfect cabin to bring the whole family together. 

Community Amenities 
Tucked among the trees in Chalet Village Resort, this Smoky Mountain vacation home offers more than just in-cabin amenities.

Lift weights, play tennis on lit courts, shoot hoops, swim at 3 pools, play games at 3 clubhouses, walk trails, and book the venue for large gatherings…for starters.

Local Fun
Convenient to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Ober Gatlinburg, and downtown Gatlinburg, A Bear’s Pause keeps you close to all the fun in the Smokies!

Not to mention, you’ll be within a short drive to neighboring mountain towns with even more fun things to do together — including Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and Wears Valley. Eat cookies the size of your face at Dollywood, play escape games at The Island, splash at Soaky Mountain Waterpark, and hang out at the food truck social.

Cabin was fantastic. It was clean, spacious and very well sticked. My family and I really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend it to anyone.
