Overview

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.

Great location and beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is one amazing cabin!! The location is great ( about 12 mins to Pigeon forge and the same for Gatlinburg) and the amenities make it more than affordable for any family looking to enjoy the GSM. Mike and Vicki were great and kept me very well informed and up to date on check-in/check-out procedures. The cabin was very clean upon arrival and the interior decor really gave it that cozy cabin feeling. I would suggest bringing some sort of citronella candle to keep the bugs away while gazing at the sunset on the many back decks. The drive to the cabin isn't too bad and the parking area in front of the house was able to hold 3 large suvs, a mid size SUV and a truck, so there is plenty of space to park. The kitchen is equipped with the essentials. I've seen a few complaints about the grill; I was able to grill 8 ribeyes and could have maybe squeezed in 2 more, so it should be able to handle most families. Overall, this cabin most definitely Bears Repeating and I would like to thank Mike and Vicki for allowing us to stay at their beautiful cabin.

We had an amazing family vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

Our trip was awesome! The cabin was clean and the atmosphere and view was relaxing and beautiful! Our big family group of 9 had plenty of room. We experienced 40 miles of hiking trails, went zip lining, and went to downtown Gatlinburg a few times. We also enjoyed the arts and crafts district of Gatlinburg it has a lot of unique shops, restaurants, pubs and a soda fountain shop. We loved the cabin and loved our Gatlinburg family vacation!!

Beautiful home with breathtaking mountain views.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our family vacation in this beautiful home. Great location to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We loved waking up to the beautiful mountain views and rocking on the porch watching the sun set in the evening. The home has plenty of room to accommodate large families. The kids loved the bunkbeds and it was so nice having a tv in every room.

Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic location with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property! My family stayed here with another family. There was more tan enough room for all 8 of us, 4 adults and 4 children. The children occupied the bottom floor and it was perfect! The older boys shared a room and the younger boys shared a room. In addition, they had their own living room with a giant tv, leaving the main floor for the adults to enjoy! The bedrooms were great and the views were beautiful. It was very clean and well -maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed. We were very happy with the location. Just far enough away to experience the views while also being a short drive to Gatlinburg. We highly recommend!

good and bad

  • 3 of 5

Overall the cabin was nice. The layout is very nice for large families that want there own space. We had each level with different members of our extended families. Alot of our issues were with the area surrounding the cabin. Our families main problem was that the pool was closed the entire time we were visiting. If we had known this ahead of time we would have planned our activities differently. Our kids were super upset with no pool. the hot tub pretty much saved the day! There were a few minor items around the cabin that needed fixing. nothing major. The drive to and from the cabin down the mountain made a few of us ill from not being used to the windy roads. When we headed home from our vacation and asked everyone what they thought of the cabin. The overall reaction was it was nice, BUT the lack of usable pool made everyone upset and ended up spending alot more money on activities. I hope the pool is fixed soon or the next visitors arent going to be very happy!
