About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath Luxury Log Cabin 3 minutes from Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Comm

'It's as if you can reach out and grab Mount LeConte' said one of our recent guests.

The mountain views are glorious no matter the season: fresh greens in the Spring, beautiful Fall reds, yellows and oranges, and white snow cap peaks in the Winter.

Enjoy these mountain views from one of three large decks, or while relaxing in our hot tub on the romantic candlelit gazebo.

You can smell the clean fresh wood. This newer log cabin is decorated with beautiful 'authentic' Log furnishings and pine floors, walls and ceilings throughout.

We've tried to think of everything to accommodate our guests, down to the coffee maker brewing above 200 degrees for perfect coffee, and coffee grinder with Colombian bean coffee so that our log cabin 'Bears Repeating.'

A dining table and island in the kitchen, two picnic tables on the main deck, log rockers, and a fully equipped kitchen provide for wonderful family gatherings.

Couches and chairs are leather for easy cleaning and care.

Bears Repeating sleeps 14 people. Two king master suites, a queen suite, double bunk beds in the fourth bedroom, along with two queen sofa sleepers; perfect for multiple or large families.

The upstairs master honeymoon suite has it's own double Jacuzzi whirlpool tub.

Wi-Fi throughout; flat panel HDTV with Netflix in each bedroom, and easy access to HDMI input for video game consoles (bring your HDMI cable, consoles, games, and controllers).

The TV room has a 70 inch Smart HDTV with Netflix streaming, great for family movies or ballgames; upstairs Family Room has a 40 inch Smart HDTV with Netflix streaming.

And don't forget the Settler's Ridge pool. Great for a family cookout while the kids enjoy a swim after a busy day of hiking or visiting the sites.

'Bears Repeating' is centrally located, near to all the attractions in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains without the stress of traffic.

In the mountains, as you can imagine, seasonal access to your cabin can be a challenge. Bear's Repeating has year around access (unless extremely heavy snow/ice) by way of Manis Hollow (neither too winding nor too steep).

From 'Bears Repeating' to Gatlinburg, take right onto Powdermill from Manis Hallow and you are in the Arts and Crafts Community on Glades Road in three minutes; another eight minutes and you will be in downtown Gatlinburg.

From Bears Repeating to Pigeon Forge, take a left onto Powdermill from Manis Hallow. Powdermill will turn into Booger Town Road, and in 4.5 miles you will run into Dolly Parton Lane. From there you will be in Pigeon Forge in five minutes or Dollywood and Splash Country in ten.

One thing you will not be doing in our luxury log cabin is roughing it.

We welcome you to share our cabin retreat with us. Our hope is that it will 'bear repeating', and you will share it with your friends or family.

Note concerning negotiating rates:

Since we've received several requests asking to accept significantly discounted rates, addressing the issue openly may save unnecessary time for those looking for steep discounts.

We offer discounted rates based upon a) seasonal rates and b) weekly length of stay.

We've made it a priority to avoid churning days rented in order to pay for our cabin. This is a primary reason for renting Bears Repeating by owner.

It is best for all our guests and Bears Repeating to conservatively rent our cabin at good consistent rates.

We want Bears Repeating to be your home-away-from-home so that you will want to return and tell others about us.

Note for those interested in vacationing in Panama City Beach, Florida.

Vicki and I recently purchased a 2BR/2BA condo in a great location directly on the beach. If you are interested, check out our VRBO listing #512639.

About Mike and Vicki Graham

Mike and Vicki live in Mount Juliet, Tennessee, about 15 miles outside Nashville.

For the past 13 years, Mike has pastored Hickory Grove Church, PCA while Vicki has worked in the Wilson County School system as a Speech Language Pathologist.

We have four children from ages 23 to 14.

Mike and Vicki Graham purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Mike and Vicki Graham chose East

We've always loved the mountains and vacationed in Gatlinburg with our family and on anniversaries.

Mike and the kids used to stop on the Gatlinburg parkway, take off their shoes, stick their feet in the cold mountain water, and see who could keep their feet in the longest.

We purchased a condo in the mountains in Gatlinburg in the early 90's. When Mike was called into ministry, he sold his real estate business and we sold our condo in closing this chapter in our lives.

In 2010, when real estate prices were severely depressed, we decided it was a good time to purchase a second home.

We never dreamed we would find a luxury log cabin like Bears Repeating centrally located to all the attractions.

We've been successfully renting our cabin through a rental management company since purchasing it in June of 2010.

Due to Mike's background in Real Estate, advances in Technology (VRBO/Facebook), locating an excellent cleaning service, and maintaining better over site over guests renting our cabin, we decided to Rent-by-Owner.

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Bears Repeating the week after Christmas and had a wonderful time. The cabin was decorated, the fireplace was wonderful and the cabin was beautiful. We had 6 adults and 3 children and were very comfortable.

Very comfortable cabin with well stocked kitchen. Owner is very attentive. Coffee pot was leaking, and he sent a replacement the next day. Cabin was very clean. Netflix is a nice feature. Would definitely recommend this cabin to others. We enjoyed our Christmas vacation!

Bears Repeating was a great place. Stunning view of the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! Well stocked kitchen with open floor plan-able to be part of everything while cooking the Thanksgiving turkey! Pool table was a hit with everyone. We slept 11 people without a problem. Enjoyed the fireplace and Netflix. Parking was a bit challenging --grade a bit steep....but we made it work!! Mike Graham was a pleasure to work with, as well.

Gorgeous Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We visited "Bears Repeating" with a family of 7 and the cabin had everything we needed- pool table, fully equipped kitchen, all smart tv's, gorgeous views, jacuzzi on the deck, cozy linens! The owners were sweet, very easy to deal with, and followed through. The cabin's location was close enough to town we were able to order pizza and just far enough to be peaceful and really have that 'up in the mountains' feel. We would definitely rent again!

wonderfully relaxing

  • 5 of 5

the house and area are amazing! The house had plenty of space for all of us and had everything we needed for our stay. The photos were accurate and the house was ready/clean/neat when we arrived. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and watching the bears (a momma bear & 3 cubs). The views from the back porches were beautiful and so peaceful.

We had easy access to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge with the house centrally located between both. A vacation location that definitely "bears repeating"!
