Get ready for a vacation experience that is literally like no other. Bear View Chalet is truly a one-of-a-kind cabin nestled up in the woods of the Great Smoky Mountains, just a few hundred yards away from all the national park has to offer—yet only a four minute drive down the mountain to all the entertainment on the Parkway in downtown Gatlinburg. And—get this—Bear View Chalet is one of the very few cabins in the mountains to actually have a large, safe and secure fenced-in yard to entertain and protect your little ones (both the two and four-legged variety). Just open the door and out they go!
The full-sized kitchen features full-sized appliances and everything you need to prepare full-sized meals to feed your hungry pack after a day of exploring the world’s most popular national park, swimming and playing tennis at three Chalet Village owners’ clubs (included for the length of your stay), or taking in all the entertainment and family fun that Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have to offer.
And they do have a lot to offer—Dollywood Amusement Park, a world-class aquarium, skiing and snow-tubing just two miles away (in season), museums, multiple miniature golf courses and go-karting tracks, shopping outlets, family-friendly dinner theatre and hundreds of restaurants and clubs, along with great live music for which Tennessee is world-renowned--not to mention several trams that offer great aerial views of it all from the highest mountains east of the Mississippi.
Now for the cabin itself: Bear View Chalet is a three-bedroom, two full-bath cabin that sleeps twelve--perfect for several couples or two families vacationing together with their kids and furry friends. Two bedrooms feature queen-sized beds with ceiling fans, and the bunkroom offers a double bunk bed—perfect for the kids. All the bedrooms have HD flat screens.
The living room at Bear View Chalet has a warm, wonderful stone fireplace and big screen HDTV with a sleeper sofa and plenty of seating. The arcade room downstairs also features an HD big screen, fireplace, and another sleeper sofa--along with the awesome full-sized Rush race car game and a giant screen multi-cade with all your ’s favorites so you can show off your video game prowess to all in the room.
Spend your evenings at Bear View Chalet on the large upper deck or glassed-in sun porch overlooking majestic mountains, with an enchanting view of twinkling city lights below. Or go down to the lower deck and completely chill out with friends in the large hot tub. Then enjoy the great outdoors, toasting marshmallows and s’mores, tossing back a few as you regale your family and friends with camp fire stories at the huge, well-appointed fire pit, which is protected by a strong, high fence, secure from the local black bears who sometimes drop by just to say hello.
The best of nature, the best of family fun both inside and out—Bear View Chalet is everything you need to create your unforgettable family vacation!
