About the property

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-13)

GREAT NEWS. Our chalet survived the Gatlinburg wildfires very well!! The side of Ski Mountain that we are on is outside the fire footprint .From our chalet, you still have great views. Thank you to all who have sent thoughts and prayers.

The Kids won't want to leave!!! Our kid friendly home has something to offer everyone!!EXCELLENT views which include beautiful sunrises over Mt. LaConte, the aerial tram, downtown Gatlinburg, a game room with FREE REAL arcade games + (NEW)Playstation2 and games that will for sure entertain adults and children for hours,located near one of the three Chalet Village community heated pools (open mid-May to mid Sept.),and 1/2 from the entrance to Ober Gatlinburg ski area. All of this for a great value!! PLUS, we have PARKING!! We have a parking area that can fit 4-5 cars across and everyone can get out or park a motorcycle trailer!!

Our Chalet is a large A-frame design. It has three levels with a bath on each level. The first level has 2 bedrooms (1Q, 1F), a full bath and a laundry facility (washer and dryer). The main level has 2 bedrooms (2Q's), a full bath, the living/dining room,gas fireplace with sunken living room, kitchen, and decks which surround 2 sides of our home, and the hot tub. The 3rd level has a bedroom (1K + couch), plus a bed (1F + loveseat) on the loft, a bath. The game room is its own room off this level and has couches. Our cabin is close to all the area attractions(Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, Cherokee, National Park entrance and more). It sits on top of Ski Mountain in the Chalet Village neighborhood and our street ends with the boundry to the National Forrest which allows for an occasional visit from wildlife, i.e. 'L'il Smokey', a black bear, that likes to visit our home from time to time in search of their next meal. Eventhough, we are on top of the mountian, we are still only 3 miles from downtown Gatlinburg and 15 minutes to Pigeon Forge.

We have WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICE, FREE LONG DISTANCE PHONE SERVICE for US & Canada, and digital cable. We have stereo systems, DVD and VHS players and a movie library for your viewing pleasure. For your comfort, we offer luxury linens and towels, a complete kitchen and dishes with a set up for 15.

Our home has something for everyone...entertainment, close to all area attractions, views, the house is located a lot away from your neighbors on all sides, and fun. The word I usually use to describe our home is that is has 'Great Flow' for a group. While the kids are up in the game room, the adults can enjoy a movie or views from the deck.

We would love for you to stay with us. Just e-mails us today.

Sincerely,

John & Laura and Sandy & Steve

Great place if you have children

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The kids loved the game room and it kept them entertained for hours. The kitchen had everything we needed to feed a large group and the views were great. The only negative about the whole place was the driveway is difficult to enter and exit from however we were able to manage it with no problems. If there was ice I am not sure it would have been accessible. However, overall was a very positive experience and the next time we visit the area will look into getting this place again.

Just What We Were Looking For

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT Labor Day weekend stay at the Bear Drop Inn. From booking, to directions, to the actual stay this is exactly what my family was looking for. The owners were great to work with and were quick to respond to any questions or concerns.

As far as the cabin was concerned, it was perfect. The location was great as we spent a day enjoying Ober Gatlinburg and it was very easy to get to town and Pigeon Forge. The kids enjoyed the game room while the adults enjoyed playing cards and the big dining room table. With 10 people every family was able to have their own bed/floor of the cabin. Which worked out great for when you wanted a little privacy. The deck also provided great views.

The only negative, for me anyway, is I did not get to see any of the bears that the other reviews raved about. While this made my mom happy, I was really hoping to see some of the native wild life. Guess this just means we will have to book a return trip soon to check this item off the bucket list.

Overall, a nice relaxing weekend made even easier by great owners and a great cabin.

Thanks so much!

Mike

Great views and great location

  • 5 of 5

We took a family trip to the smoky mountains with 7 adults and 3 kids for a week. Everyone loved the location of the cabin. Very scenic. Several of us watched the beautiful sunrise every morning. The kids loved the arcade room. One of them still insists that was his favorite part of the trip, despite all of the other activities we did! It was pretty straightforward to get to and from the cabin for our activities that week. Plenty of space in the cabin for everyone to spread out. A huge porch where most of us ate our meals and played games in the evenings. We saw bears in the area almost every day, often passing right behind the cabin. One surprised me on the porch when I was unloading the car within two minutes of arrival, but luckily it didn't have time to ransack our car. I stupidly left the car open as I was unloading. I have no idea how the bear found it that fast. I highly recommend the smoky mountains for a family vacation and this cabin if you have a large group of people, particularly with kids.
