Just renovated cabin
Lots to do with pool table in game room, amazing hot tub, lots of rockers for reading and just relaxing, wrap around porch, flat screen TV's in all rooms, and large projector in multimedia room. Lots of wildlife we often see a family of deer and on occasion we will see a black bear and her cubs.
In 2016 we redid the outside of the house and replaced key windows.
Our neighborhood hosts 3 pools, golf course, and for larger events ability to rent space from the neighborhood HOA office at the very top of the mountain.
We purchased this property late last year. Our friends call our remodel a rebuild as we have gutted 3 levels to take this 1970s cabin into the 21st century. it was very trying and everything took longer than expected. We try to continually enhance the property.
Janan & I are already planning phase 2 construction projects after we pay down some of the debt we took on with this renovation and invite our guests to help set the priority of improvements. These include:
1) Removing the lower level bath tub, pushing the wall back a foot or 2 and installing a tiled shower with modern glass instead of shower curtains.
2) Adding a more inviting front entrance. Basically extending a gable out toward the driveway and a little stone work.
3) Upgrading the main level bath with tile and raise the ceiling a touch.
4) level out area on outside area for installation of picnic table & horse shoe pits.

About Ed Tollefsen
We are a family of 3 with aspirations of retiring to the mountains and managing 3 to 5 properties after 2020. In 2014, we decided to take over the daily management of the property and Janan took over booking and management. We've had a couple hiccups but overall the experience has been delightful. Our hope is that the cabin & your stay in this beautiful city is a lifelong memory.
Ed Tollefsen purchased this Lodge in 2014
Why Ed Tollefsen chose Gatlinburg
We bought the property in October 2014 as a distressed foreclosure. We loved the view and the neighborhood and decided to restore this wonderful old cabin. The renovations took a life of their own as it became a bit of a rebuild. We have enjoyed bringing this 1970's property up to 21st century standards. Our goal has been to bring modern convenience while maintaining a unique country cabin feel.

Great cabin with an amazing view
I had a party of 9 with me to celebrate my birthday. The cabin was perfect for the amount of people. Very spacious , nice layout and beautiful view. Everything we needed was right there, pots,pans,wine glasses,coffee cups if you need it it’s there(there was even a deck of cards). This place was amazing and very clean. I would definitely use it again in the future.
Beautiful cabin and very well maintained.
We had a great time at Bear Necessities. The kids and adults enjoyed the hot tub, pool table & big screen tv. Very nice cabin. Clean, spacious and perfect for our group. Thanks again!!!
Beautiful Cabin with a beautiful view of the mountains
Our family loved staying in this beautiful cabin. One of the things we loved most was the beautiful view of the Smokey Mountains right from the living room area, and it has several balconies to sit on the outside and view them from on warmer days. We enjoyed great family time playing pool, relaxing in the hot tub and even rented a movie from redbox and watched on the big screen in the downstairs rec. area.The owners were great to respond quickly to answer any questions or concerns. It has lots of little extras for comfort and convenience also. We definitely recommend it and hope to return again for another great stay.
Great house with a great view
Very nice and clean. Has a great view of the mountains. It was nice and quiet. Didn't get to see any bear, but we did see 5-7 turkey one day.
It was great to have all 8 of us in one house!
We enjoyed everything the house had to offer, the hot tub, the pool table, the outside deck, the bbq grill, we used it all! It was so nice to have all 8 of us in one house! Every thing we looked at, we would have had to rent 2 units close to each other. We were all adults celebrating an anniversary and 3 birthdays, it was great! And it was an easy drive to Gatlinburg as well. I would highly recommend this house to anyone with a large family. We were all family from all over the U.S. We cooked all of our meals and we all worked well together. Its a large home, so we all had lots of privacy in our rooms. And because it is 3 stories, we weren't all on top of each other. If we were to do this again in that part of the country, we would definitely book this places again. And the views are phenomenal, but yet very private from other neighbors.
Thank you for your kind words.
I've done Real Estate my whole life and have found that vacation rentals are by far the most gratifying. Knowing our places are part of the best of times for guests makes them very special.
Please think of us again in the future. Gatlinburg has a different feel with each season.
We had a wonderful time. The communication was great when we needed it. The cabin was well described. We will hopefully be back soon.
Located in beautiful Cobbly Nob--golf course community in the Smoky Mountains only 12 miles from downtown Gatlinburg and within 5 miles of the Smoky Mountain National Park.
