About Johnny Duke

My wife and I are both educators. We bought Bear Haven primarily as a retreat to share with our sons. I grew up going to the Smoky Mountains on a semi-regular basis. Some of my favorite childhood memories are fall visits to see the leaves and nights walking the strip in Gatlinburg.

Johnny Duke purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Johnny Duke chose Chalet Village

We love the location since my sons and I hike and fly-fish in the mountains, while my wife and daughter-in-law have access to unlimited shopping and bargain hunting in the area.

What makes this chalet unique

We love the tongue and groove paneling and the stone fireplaces. The deck is a nice place to relax under the shade of trees in the summer. While we have neighbors within sight, this is in an older section of Ski Mountains where the cabins are more spaced out.

Our Bear Haven Memories

  • 5 of 5

From East Coast (Asheville, NC, Knoxville, TN) to West Coast (San Diego, CA), the Basses met for vacation and made Bear Haven our home away from home.

It was more than we had hoped for or imagined. Everything we needed plus more was there. The nice clean cabin echoed the words "Welcome Home" when you unlocked the door.

The adults and grandkids enjoyed the pool table, hot tub, and swimming pool near by.

The hike and picnic in the mountains was so refreshing and our stroll downtown Gatlinburg was adventurous.

Our shared meals and board games around the table brought treasured memories to keep us smiling.

Owners Johnny and Vickie excel in customer service. We highly recommend this Vacation rental.

Great and cozy stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very well kept and extremely cozy. Really enjoyed the gas fireplace, pool table and hot tub. Convenient to downtown and to Pidgeon Forge by the bypass, and right down the road from Ober. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone.
