Cabin Holiday Rental
We have owned Bears Among Us for a year. Our new metal roof just done and the inside looks fabulous from recent remodeling, simply beautiful. Exterior features hand hewn logs. Post fire many guests are seeing more bears than ever. New homes going up after fires but many not being rebuilt which means less traffic and less noise. Many guests have sent us pictures of bears that have thankfully survived although they must also know that many of the homes in their stomping ground is gone. We re so thankful that ours did survive, especially since we just bought and remodeled it last winter We are in Chalet Village North and so many homes, particularly on the main road of Wiley Oakley are gone.

Our new metal roof just done and the inside looks fabulous from recent remodeling, simply beautiful. Exterior features hand hewn logs. Post fire many guests are seeing more bears than ever. New homes going up after fires but many not being rebuilt which means less traffic and less noise. Many guests have sent us pictures of bears that have thankfully survived although they must also know that many of the homes in their stomping ground is gone. We re so thankful that ours did survive, especially since we just bought and remodeled it last winter We are in Chalet Village North and so many homes, particularly on the main road of Wiley Oakley are gone. Bears Among Us is not on the main road but it is conveniently accessible from two of the main roads. We finally choose our name after a mom and her two baby bears visited us several times (actually walking up onto our deck and looking around). We love this home and the location that it is in as it is in a more private location in the heart of the mountainside. Oak Place road turned out to be just the place. Our home is at the end of this road up a private drive to the left. Our road was shared by us and two other homes but the fires did take one that was behind ours. Bears Among Us sits in front and two the right (when you are looking at the mountains) of the other remaining home. We see No Roofs and only a view of the Great Smokey Mountain's. We are high enough and away from the road, unlike many homes for rent, so you can jump into the hot tub or trot out to the Charcoal Grill in whatever type of outfit you might have on. Bears Among Us is a true log cabin but needed a lot of interior updates and TLC. Beautiful new flooring has been installed. Both bathrooms have been redone adding some bling and some mountain appeal. And the KITCHEN! A Full Size Smudge Proof Stainless Steel Refrigerator, Dishwasher, Microwave, Stove and Under Mount Sink is ready for you. And yes we have plenty of dishes so you can cook 'at home' if you want. There is a crockpot, mixer, skillets, pots and pans plus some sugar and spice and everything nice. We often rent a home when we are travel and do not like going into a totally empty place that doesn't even have the basic daily household amenities. The home has two bedrooms of which one is located in the loft. We installed a brand new Gaming Nook in the loft. That area has a 42' TV, a cable box and an X-Box that can be viewed and played while seating on the futon that can be folded down into a full sized bed. This area also has a queen sized Ultra-Firm bed with a goose down mattress pad in the loft as well. The bathroom in the loft area has a built in cabinet where you can put your beauty and other supplies while at Bears Among Us. The shower has been redone with some bling plus a great rainfall shower head. The downstairs bedroom was made into a master suite and a corner juccuzi tub was installed. The tub includes a heater that comes on when the whirlpool is turned on. It is a great experience to be able to lounge in the tub while watching your favorite show on the flat panel TV that is mounted to the wall. This can be articulated to view from the bathtub or the bed, wonderful. Above the tub are some dimmable vintage lights that can be set to just the level you want by sliding a small toggle that is part of the switch. The Master Suite also has a King Sized Master Bed, a Bose Soundlink (so you can play the music you like by just linking your device to the unit) and an LED light system that you can control to get the perfect atmosphere for you. When you walk into Bears Among Us you will see a stone wood-burning fireplace in the middle of the room that is surround by two loveseats and a couch. Since we personally love music, movies and sports... a 65' Sony Ultra 4K TV was installed above the fireplace along with a Sony Soundbar! You will also see a second Bose Soundlink. We do not have a Foosball Table, a Pool Table, an Air Hockey Table at this point. Hundred's of other places do but we know that after long day enjoying all the activities that is offered in the Great Smokey Mountains, many people just want to sit down for a relaxing activity in one of the comfy couches or simply cook up a yummy snack to be served at the pub height kitchen table. So we put in the Xbox and a DVD Player. We are often asked about pets. Our other vacation renatal is pet friendly, we love our dogs & they are always with us. We found that there isn't very many pet friendly places in the National Park. When Bears came for a visit we decided that we should not allow Pet Guests. So pets have been in the home and a stray hair may be seen in the clean home. So much to do and what a great home away from home awaits you at Bears Among Us.More

Interaction with guests
I like to take a hands off approach and let guests go in At their leisure. I always provide a detailed welcome email with how to get into my place and provide basic information that they need so they can enjoy their stay. I want them to feel like they are coming home and not have to deal with me being there trying to give them the grand tour. As I have traveled over the years I find that I like being able to go in and not having to meet with a property manager So that is how I manage my beautiful log home.

About the neighbourhood
We are in Chalet Village Norh which is super convenient to both downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. If you go down Ski Mountsin Road when you are at the bottom of the mountain you simply take a right and you are in the Great Smokey National Park right away. F you take Wiley Oakley down and turn left you will be in Pigeon Forge in about 10 minutes. Or you can take a right and head into the west side og Gatlinburg.
How to get there
My place is so convenient to get to. Once you are in Gatlinburg you can go up either Wiley Oakley or ski Mountain Road. Since it is in chalet village north my home is essentially above Gatlinburg. You do not see Gatlinburg as I face The great Smoky Mountain Park but it sure is easy to get into the action quickly if you want to.
