About the property

Luxury 6 Br/6.5 Ba, Huge Views, Private! 10 Mins To Dwtn! Indoor Pool+kids Area

Sadly, we lost this cabin to the fire...BUT we are rebuilding an even more beautiful home where this one once stood (anticipated date of completion is end of 2017). In the meantime, please check out our other amazing cabins in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. They are VRBO listing numbers 619943 -Time Out, 687583 -Smoky Vista, and 843790 -Crazy 8.

Welcome to "The Loan-ly Bear' one of the nicest luxury cabins you will stay in with unbeatable views and VERY Private setting on 1.15 acres!**


**2006 Custom built, 4,200 +/- square feet so plenty of room. Beautiful, Large, 6 Bedroom, 6.5 Bath Log Cabin, sleeps up to 23. Located 3.5 miles, a 10 minute drive from Downtown Gatlinburg OR 6.5 miles/15 minute drive to Pigeon Forge, or 10 miles/25 minute drive to Dollywood. Also 5 mins (bottom of n'hood) to Wild Bear Falls Water Park and the Gatlinburg Park & Ride Trolley!

**This home has a large brand new 2015, 6 person Hot tub on the top floor deck with incredible views and VERY PRIVATE! There is also an Indoor, small swimming pool swim spa in the bottom level that is kept around 80-85 degrees. You can also active the jets and swim against the current in this pool.

There is also a 1/2 bath off from living room/dining room. Home sleeps up to 23+ (assumes 2 per King/Queen bed and 2 each on the Two pull out couches and there are 3 single roll away beds).

**Beautiful Views and very few houses nearby, much more private than those cookie cutter Cabin neighborhoods up here. **Prepare to see some black bears! We have them frequent the cabin regularly. Please do not feed them, and even though risk of attack is VERY rare, use common sense!

** Located in Chalet Village, guests have full use of 3 outdoor neighborhood pools, tennis courts, playground, clubhouse, basketball courts, small gym, etc...The cabin is minutes from skiing and winter activities at Ober Gatlinburg.

**10 Minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg and parking garage at corner of HWY 321 and The Parkway, by the Aquarium. You will LOVE this location, so close to town yet just far enough to have peace/views/wildlife. *7 miles to Pigeon Forge and 10 miles to Dollywood. **You can exit the neighborhood and go down the mountain to the Pigeon Forge side of Gatlinburg or go directly to the other side of Gatlinburg and Smoky Mtn National park. Short drive to either side !

**Notes on Handicap accessibility: The builder of the home did not make the front door wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair however they did make the main level rear exterior deck door, master bedroom door and it's bathroom door wide enough for access. We added a handicap shower chair in that bath and also created a handicap ramp from parking area to wrap around deck so one can use wheelchair to gain access from car to cabin now. There is NO elevator at this home though, but the main kitchen, master bed/bath, and living room are all on this main level.

About Sierra Schoenheit

We are a young couple (well, at least we FEEL young!) Appalachian State Alumni, who have learned that through hard work and determination, anyone can accomplish owning this Mtn Log Cabin! We love opening our home to other families who enjoy the mountains and spending time together as much as we do.

Sierra Schoenheit purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Sierra Schoenheit chose Gatlinburg

We love this cabin because of the great views, and especially how private it is, sitting on 1.15 Acres. You can barely see any neighbors, so very, very private, yet still only 10 minutes to Gatlinburg strip and 15 mins to Pigeon Forge! Bears visit daily, and it's nice to have a private bath for all bedrooms, unlimited WiFi, small indoor pool and large hot tub on top deck with the best views!

What makes this cabin unique

We have never seen a house with amenities like this! The kids area is perfect for keeping everyone entertained. The house is big enough for everyone to have their own private space, but also provides coziness and a feeling of warmth.

This is it, greatest cabin ever.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is everything you are looking for, great location, great views, plenty of games, amazing pool, plenty of huge beds. My family stayed here and had a great time with plenty of room for everyone to stretch out. We have stayed at 4 cabins in Gatlinburg and this is by far the best. We will be back!

Awesome house with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this house. No fighting over the bedrooms because they were all very nice and had their own bathroom and access to the decks. Great kitchen and plenty of seating for everyone to eat. The kids and adults loved the game room, jacuzzi, and swim spa. The wrap around decks with the rocking chairs and swings were also one of our favorite places to drink coffee and relax. The view is absolutely beautiful! We also had a couple of visits from the neighborhood bears. The only thing wrong with this house is that you never want to leave!

Beautiful, well appointed cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 12 loved staying here...the amenities were great, the views spectacular. Everything we needed was right there. Our party never felt cramped or crowded as the cabin is extremely spacious. The furnishing are nice and in good shape. We did bring along all the Housey type items as suggested, but found when we got there that others had left an assortment of spices, paper products, laundry soap, dish soap and 2 full propane tanks. We highly recommend this cabin, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Sierra...your cabin is lovely!

Awesome view and bears!

  • 5 of 5

Got to see a Mama bear and her two cubs. The view from the deck is great and nice place to wake your day and have coffee. Enjoyed watching a storm roll in while sitting on the covered deck. The Hot-tub was actually HOT which you would think is normal but not the case in a lot of places. Easy driving access to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge or take the trolly which was at the base of the mountain. Good trout fishing in the area within a short 20 minute drive to the national Park. Also great Hiking in this area.

Your mountain getaway to the Great Smoky Mountains starts here

Gatlinburg is nestled at the entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited national park in America. There are three entrances into the Smokies right from downtown. Gatlinburg attracts more than eleven million visitors a year and can grow to a population of 40,000-plus on any given night. This little town of 3,944 residents is dedicated to welcoming all of its guests with a taste of Appalachian hospitality at its best. Folks come from all over the world for vacations, outdoor adventures, family fun and memory making. Gatlinburg is one of America's great mountain resort destinations, with accommodations of every kind, dozens of local-to-national restaurants, and attractions galore – all nestled in the foothills and surrounded on three sides by the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains. Gatlinburg prides itself on its walk-ability amidst mountain heritage and the arts, crafts and shops that reflect that tradition. Walking Downtown and the River Walk.

Everyone enjoys walking the Downtown Parkway, which runs from one end of town to the other. It’s filled with a rich variety of things to see and activities to experience, places to eat, super shopping and attractions that boggle the mind. For a quieter stroll, take the River Walk and enjoy the cheerful song of the Little Pigeon River, with gazebos and benches along the way. Apart from the Downtown Parkway and connecting side streets, the East Parkway at Traffic Light #3 is dotted with shops and restaurants for about three miles.

Arts and Crafts for miles

Anchored at the corner of East Parkway and Glades Road at Traffic Light #3A, you'll find the beginning of the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community. Home to over 100 shops featuring craftspeople and artists along an 8-mile loop, it's the largest gathering of independent artisans in North America. You'll discover one-of-a-kind crafts, treasures and artwork, and you can watch the artisans at work. Stop along the way and chat with a painter or potter, or let a broom maker show you how it's done.

The night time is the right time

Once the sun sets, there's plenty of dining and entertainment downtown. From family fare to filet mignon, Gatlinburg's restaurants are always fixin' up something special. After dinner, enjoy a show. Take a trip back in time to the slapstick vaudeville comedy of Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre or check out the Mentalist show with hypnosis and magic. Grab a bench and people-watch. Or cruise up the Space Needle or Gatlinburg Sky Lift and enjoy the twinkling lights below.
