About Lynn

My husband and I were married in Gatlinburg nearly 20 years ago. We searched many times for the cabin we stayed in when we were married, to no avail. In late 2013, while cabin hunting, we stumbled unexpectedly across that cabin. Needless to say, we purchased it. Our heart has always been in these beautiful mountains, and we enjoy sharing our dreams, and the beauty with other families. The memories we share, and those that are shared with us, are memories of a lifetime.... they are true BLESSINGS. You can see our first true love, 'Grandview', and read our full story, by typing the listing number 558850 into the search or going to VRBO Listing #558850 (See 'Owners Story') .

Lynn purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Lynn chose Gatlinburg

It's private, located in an area that we love, Chalet Village, convenient to downtown and connected to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Pure Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin with an amazing view of the mountains. Plenty of room for our family of five. The hot tub was a hit for our family. The kids enjoyed playing in the game room and watching the TV after a fun day of sight seeing. Lynn was a pleasure to work with. She gave us a lot of useful information before the trip and checked in with us several times during our stay. She made sure everything was perfect for us. I highly recommend staying at this location, I wouldn't change a thing!

Wonderful view and a great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit to the Smoky Mountains, and Honey Bear Ridge was the perfect base of operations. The view was spectacular. It was very close to Gatlinburg attractions, the national park and Pigeon Forge. The hot tub and the game room were both a big hit. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cookware. We would love to go back and stay there again!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a few days to get away to the mountains and Honey Bear was perfect. It is very convenient to Gatlinburg and Great Smoky Mountain National Park without the traffic and congestion of downtown Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge.

The cabin was very clean with well-stocked, clean linens and towels. We had 4 adults and 4 children with plenty of room. It has great views of the Smokies. We will definitely have to return, if available, in the Fall.

Just wow!

  • 5 of 5

I've lost track of the number of times I have been responsible for finding houses for family and friend trips. I have never been more pleased with a location - this house was simply perfect for us 7 sisters/sisters-in-law. Lynn and Chris were fabulously responsive, even sending a quick welcomed text on day of check-in to assure everything was as expected. The house was clean, comfortable, and very well equipped - there was nothing that we needed (or wanted!) that we didn't have. Finally, the view was phenomenal - middle deck has decent one but top deck - wow! We were able to park our three cars in front of house and follow Lynn's driving directions - you do not want to approach the driveway from the wrong direction! I hope to return with my kids - they'd love the hot tub, fooz ball, and games you have. Thank you Lynn and Chris for sharing your beautiful house and for your amazing hospitality - we'll be back!!

Lovely cabin with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were friendly, easy to work with and took time to answer our questions. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The adults enjoyed the beautiful views and the kids enjoyed the game room. Wish we could have stayed longer.
