About the Property
Condo, 3 bedrooms, 2 Baths, Awesome Mountain Views (Sleeps 4-8)
Welcome to “Dancing Bear”. Come and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the gorgeous Smoky Mountains from this beautifully appointed 3 bedroom 2 bathroom condo. Watch the mist come up over the mountains from one of TWO balconies. This top floor unit offers stunning views of downtown Gatlinburg, overlooking the ski slopes of Ober Gatlinburg, and the Great Smoky Mountains including Mount LeConte, one of the tallest mountains in the eastern United States.
The condominium has all the comforts of home so you can just relax and enjoy. The condo is a corner unit that gives more light, windows and more views, and is kept extremely clean, smoke free and pet free. Our resort offers an indoor pool and jacuzzis, as well as an outdoor pool.
Our family purchased this condo for our own and our guests’ enjoyment. It was previously used just as an owners retreat. The unit has a large loft with two twin beds as an extra bonus. Kids love to hang out in the loft and play. Our children call it their own private tree house. The loft even has a sky light so the kids can watch the stars come out while lying in bed.
Renovations and upgrades are done continuously. In 2016, the guest bathroom was totally remodeled. A brand new Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top mattress/box spring was bought for the guest bedroom. In the kitchen, a new whisper quiet dishwasher was installed. In 2015, the master bathroom was completely remodeled. New glass was installed in the sliding doors leading to the balcony further enhancing our views from the family room. Also, HBO & Cinemax channels were added to our cable package. In 2014, a brand new Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top mattress/box spring was installed in the master bedroom. New flat screen LED LCD HDTVs were installed in all the bedrooms with upgraded cable. Dedicated private high speed wireless internet was added to enable enhanced internet usage. In 2013, we installed brand new carpeting throughout the unit, new fireplace tile, a large flat screen TV in the family room, and new beds in the loft.
Every room has a ceiling fan, and the 20 foot tall vaulted ceiling in the family room gives our condo a spacious alpine feel. Open both balcony doors, and let the mountain breeze fill your home with fresh air.
Both the master bedroom and the guest bedroom have queen-size beds. With the additional queen-size sleeper sofa bed, your home can sleep 8 people comfortably. Plenty of room for all to have a most peaceful vacation.
Dancing Bear is the largest unit in the complex at 1100 square feet, and is located on the top floor so you will not be disturbed by anyone above you. Because we are on the top floor, no matter what the time of year, we offer the most breathtaking views you have ever seen.
Conveniently located to Ober Gatlinburg, downtown Gatlinburg, and the main Park Entrance, there is so much to do - from hiking, shopping, mini golf, the Aquarium, and of course, Ripley's Believe It Not. Not to mention all the incredible restaurants, and Dollywood in Pigeon Forge just down the road from Gatlinburg. Whether you curl up by the wood burning fireplace (with free unlimited wood provided), take in the sites in town, or just simply enjoy the most amazing year round views of the mountains, you will want to come back to Dancing Bear time and time again.

Our mountain getaway is located just minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg as well as the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Ober Gatlinburg is just 1 mile away, and offers 4 seasons of family fun, from a water park in the summer to skiing and snow tubing in the winter.
Some of our guests’ favorite activities are Ripleys Believe It Or Not Museum, miniature golf, and the Sky Ride up the mountain. Two restaurants not to be missed - Bennett's Pit Barbecue for some of the best Tennessee barbecue, and Flapjacks offering their world famous peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes (Kids go crazy for them.)
To work off all the great food, try hiking in the Great Smoky National Park. Our favorite hike is called Laurel Falls. It is one of the easiest in the park, and not very long. The reward at the end of the trail is a beautiful 60-foot falls!
Or just sit back in the family room, or on one of your TWO balconies, and look at the most incredible views you have ever seen!
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, snowboarding, wildlife viewing, miniature golf, hot air balllooning
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: My wife and I purchased this home for our family and friends to enjoy. We hope that you will also enjoy your vacation and think of our home as your home.
Why the Owner Chose Chalet Village, Gatlinburg, TN, USA:
After seeing pictures of the Smoky Mountains, I wanted to take my family there to take in all the splendor of the area, and it truly is a magical place to visit. The mountains are one of the most breathtaking I have ever seen, and they really are smoky! The greatest feature for staying in our resort is the unmatched views. Another benefit is that it is only 3 miles from the town of Gatlinburg, with all the kids attractions, shopping, and restaurants, and just 10 minutes to the main entrance of the Smoky Mountain National Park. Also, it is only 5 minutes to Ober Gatlinburg for great skiing, ice-skating, or water park fun. In addition, our complex is the only one on the mountain that offers both an indoor pool with jacuzzis, and an outdoor pool.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The biggest attraction for staying in our unit is the most spectacular views of the mountains. Our home is the perfect blend of both a condo and a cabin. The 20-foot tall vaulted ceiling gives it a real mountain feeling. The two balconies give everyone a chance to enjoy the outdoors and are really wonderful. Children love the kids loft and really enjoy having their own space to hang out in and play. However, the biggest reason for staying in our unit always comes back to the amazing views of the beautiful Smoky Mountains that must be seen to be believed! Absolutely amazing!
