A Great Smoky Mountains getaway doesn’t get any better than a stay at Bear Paws. Nestled in the forest amid huge trees, you’d never believe Bear Paws is a short ways from downtown Gatlinburg and near the Arts and Crafts Loop – eight miles of galleries, studios, and craft shops. Bear Paws is rustic, yet loaded with the modern conveniences you need and want in your vacation getaway.
Walk in your Bear Paws front door and you’ll enter a beautiful living room with a huge river rock fireplace and loads of windows to let in the woodland beauty surrounding your cabin. You’ll love the log staircase and gleaming hardwood floors. There’s plenty to do within Bear Paws. You have an air hockey table and a TV with cable along with a DVD player. Out on your partially covered, expansive deck you have a bubbling hot tub. It’s always the right time to hop in and soothe your muscles in the bubbly water as you enjoy a glass of wine. Bear Paws also has free Wi-Fi, which is a big asset when you want to check out websites for area attractions or send photos home to friends.
There’s a lot to see and do in and around Gatlinburg. Skiing, hiking, white-water rafting, zip lines, horseback riding, and fishing are all available. Plus you’re just a short drive from Dollywood with its amusement rides and interesting shops. Plan ahead so you’ll be sure to see it all.
Your Bear Paws kitchen is a chef’s delight with ample cabinets, expansive countertops, and a full complement of appliances. You’ll also find all the tableware, serving ware, and utensils you’ll need. Plus, out on your deck, you have a gas grill in case you want to grill steaks or that trout you plan to catch in the river.
Just off the kitchen is a dining table for four. The dining room features large windows on the woods on three sides. Even better, take your food out onto the deck where you’ll find a table and chairs. It’s fun to dine out amid nature where you can listen to the wrens in the morning and the whip-poor-wills at night.
Tucked away in a closet near the kitchen are your stacked washer and dryer. No need for you to visit the Laundromat! Everything you need is right here at your fingertips in Bear Paws.
Of course, you may want to dine out throughout your vacation. You certainly have plenty of options. In downtown Gatlinburg you have a steakhouse, pizzeria, seafood restaurant, and a pancake house.
At the end of the day, you’ll be eager to head off for bed. Upstairs is your master bedroom with a king-sized bed covered with a log canopy. Right in front of your bed is a huge river stone fireplace. You can let a crackling fire lull you off to sleep or choose to watch a little TV on your private flat-screen TV. Your room is large and includes comfortable chairs, nightstands with reading lamps, and even a log bench where you can sit to put on your shoes.
Just off the master bedroom you’ll find your en suite bathroom with a unique shower/tub combination featuring river rock. Your vanity provides plenty of room to store your toiletries. Before you know it you’ll be showered, dressed, and out on the deck in a rocking chair enjoying your first cup of morning coffee.
The guest room is on the main floor of Bear Paws. Like the master bedroom, it offers a king-sized bed, river rock fireplace, dresser, and dressing bench. Guests have a private TV which is perfect for a child.
Guests staying in this bedroom have their own bathroom with a shower/tub combination with river rock wall and a vanity with plenty of good lighting. Guests truly appreciate having their own bathroom, and there’s also an additional half-bath on the main floor to make things even more convenient for guests.
