About Sam and Tammy Yarbrough

Our family have vacationed many destinations over the years but have come to love Gatlinburg and the Beautiful Smokey Mountains best of all. We enjoy the festivities, great eateries and the entertainment of simply walking through the town in the evening. After a day full day in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge relaxing in the comfort of home is “Heavenly”! And that is what our goal is with Three Bears Lodge, making this feel like home to you! Sam and I say to one another, every time we walk in the door, is, “I feel like I’m at home!” And, as we are packing to leave we always say, “I don’t want to leave!”

Sam and Tammy Yarbrough purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Sam and Tammy Yarbrough chose Gatlinburg

For over two years we have been looking for a home away from home in Gatlinburg. We had a few “Must Haves” on our list that we were unwilling to compromise; and we found them all at “Three Bears Lodge.” One “Must Have” is a view of Mt. LeConte! The sunrise, morning sky and the sunsets are indescribable on Mt. LeConte and we found that setting here! Another “Must Have” was the parking. I (Tammy) didn’t want to be afraid of falling off a cliff getting in and out of the drive and we found it here! We wanted a spacious Master Suite and somewhere to put things without living out of suitcases. We have it here! We wanted to be close to town and it’s conveniences but out of the way for privacy and relaxation. We found it here!

What makes this lodge unique

We are literally step away from the pool, which is one of three pools and clubhouses that Chalet Village has to offer. As our guest you have full access to them. You’ll find your pool passes in the cabin. The lower level patio features a picnic table, New Hot Tub and a lawn set up with horseshoe pits. We know you are going to love it in Gatlinburg and at Three Bears Lodge as much as we do!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit and experience in this the Gatlinburg area. The property was beautiful with many amenities including arcade game and hot tub. The cabin was as cozy as our personal home with comfortable beds, alarm system and plenty of space to stretch out. Spend time on the any of the three decks overlooking the beautiful view relaxing with an adult beverage and leave any cares you have behind.The owners were wonderful to work with throughout the process even taking time to contact us shortly after our arrival! The rustic decor was clean, up-to-date and welcoming. Even the bear that visited the property and that of the neighbors on our last night seemed to be checking on us! The Three Bears Lodge was convenient to the downtown Gatlinburg district, The Great Smokey Mountain National Park and the many trails to hike experiencing the beauty of the area.

Having traveled to other parts of our great country, you certainly get what you pay for in space, amenities and view. Given all that, we would recommend this property for your consideration when traveling to the area. Dealing with the wonderful owners made the experience quite pleasurable and worth a return trip!

Magical Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There are lovely houses you can rent with views and key amenities. But, then there is the rare occasion when you have the great fortune of discovering a home that is more than a place to stay, but is something so much more. My family and I had the privilege of experiencing such a home on our recent stay to Gatlinburg. Sam and Tammy Yarbrough have poured their hearts into creating a beautiful home nestled in the hills of the Great Smoky Mountains. It is full of warmth and thoughtful touches that are meant to provide their guests the comforts of home. The furnishings are beautiful and the layout is absolutely perfect for families or couples traveling together. They have thought of everything from rich bedding to cozy couches and all the kitchen appliances you may need during your stay. The views from the balconies are magnificent. There is nothing like getting up early in the morning, grabbing that first cup of coffee and sitting on the deck to watch the sun rise over the mountains. I fell in love with everything about this cabin, even the coffee cups. It was impeccably clean and I’m a stickler for cleanliness. Not a dust bunny in sight. I have never stayed in a home that was as well maintained as this cabin. And, we have rented many houses over the years. On this particular trip, we traveled with six people including myself, my husband, my two sons, my mom and dad. There was ample room for us all to spread out and never at any time did we feel as though we were on top of one another. The boys remained mainly on the first floor where they played pool and video games. And, the adults either gathered in the living room or relaxed in the upstairs bedrooms. It was truly difficult to say goodbye to our little slice of paradise. And, I can honestly say it was the best Christmas we have ever spent as a family. It was the perfect storybook adventure. Sam and Tammy were attentive to our needs the entire time and brilliantly communicated with us before, during and after our stay. They are the epitome of Southern hospitality at its finest. If your travels take you to the Gatlinburg area, this home is without a doubt the place for you to rest. You will not be disappointed….and I may just be a bit envious.

Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 8 wonderful days at this lovely cabin. I must say, the cabin was the cleanest vrbo we have stayed at. Not only inviting but comfortable. My husband hiked and I enjoyed the beautiful view of the mountains. We slept like a log each night. Very comfortable mattress. We have been vacationing in Gatlinburg for over 30 years. We highly recommend staying at Three Bears Lodge. Happy trails.

Beautiful Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our trip to the Smokies! And the Three Bears Lodge made our trip even more enjoyable. The lodge is very clean, beautiful and homelike. It is well stocked with all that you may need. The information that Sam and Tammy provided was very detailed and so helpful! It was great hearing from Tammy before our trip and then Sam checking on us upon our arrival. The lodge's location to Gatlinburg and the National Park made our day trips enjoyable not to mention the turkeys and chipmunks we saw often. We definitely would recommend this lodge and would definitely stay here again. Thank You!
