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 Gatlinburg
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.

Awesome Mountain House
Great house with a pool table and close to downtown. I would book again.
A great retreat!
Six women who are fans of wildflowers spent three wonderful nights here! It's up a windy road, but it is still a remarkably direct route: three turns (not counting the hairpin and other curves) from Gatlinburg's main strip. GPS works great.
The house was comfortable, attractive, clean, had everything we might need in the way of pots/pans/appliances/linens and even had a nice, homey feel. We saw a bear one day about a block from the house, which was better than having to deal with a big traffic snarl in the park where loads of people stop to get a glimpse of one.
We could bird watch from the deck and enjoy a lovely gas fire in the fireplace.... but mainly it was a jumping off point to explore for spring wildflowers in the park - not that they are difficult to find in the Smokies. Johnny was a great host who provides a wonderful list of places to eat, walk, visit, and he is just a phone call away for any questions.
Property was Great!
Exactly how it was pictured! Owner was very helpful and contacted me every step of the way!
Great Chalet in the mountains!
This was a great place to stay. It was our home base for our stay in the Smoky Mountains. It has all the amenities to make it feel like home. And it is beautiful! We had 7 in our group and it was very comfortable and roomy. Hope to return.
Such a great experience! Cabin was amazing and owners very accessible for questions and assistance if needed. Very clean, decorated nicely. Amazing views on deck also! Highly recommend and hope to rent again futuristically!
