Living Room
Step inside the spacious and inviting living area and take A Bear’s Pause before the wall of windows streaming in tree-studded scenes and natural light. Then sit back and relax on the plump sofas with plenty of throw pillows to get cozy at your log cabin in the Smokies. Turn on the big screen TV for a little entertainment while you relax. And if it’s a bit chilly, get a warm fire going in the gas fireplace, cuddle under a blanket, and sip cocoa. 

When you’re hankering for a meal or a snack, whip up deliciousness in the fully equipped kitchen that has stainless steel appliances, plenty of counter space, a double sink, cookware, serving dishes, cutlery, glasses, and mugs. All you need to bring to your cabin rental in Gatlinburg are the ingredients and any special cooking items you may need. 

At the end of the day, if you don’t feel like cooking, it’s a convenient place to store leftovers from restaurants in town and keep treats and drinks on hand throughout your stay.

Dining Area
Set the elegant dining table for mealtimes in the dining area centering the kitchen at your Gatlinburg cabin rental. The table is convenient for seconds and dessert and even makes for great additional counter space when you need it. Plus, this fun cabin has a few board games you can play here. It’s also a great space to check emails, write your next blog post, or set out activities for the kids.

Rec Room
Between playing at arcades in town or beating Gatlin’s Escape Games, kids and kids at heart will appreciate the large game room at your cabin in Gatlinburg — where you can challenge friends to air hockey matches, play arcade games on the flatscreen unit, watch DVDs or stream over Roku 3 on the big screen TV, or toss back a few cold ones at the tables. 

There are sofas to relax and a Bluetooth soundbar you can tap into at your leisure. It’s a nice and roomy place to let the kids hang out or chill with your friends and family together in the Smokies. Plus, you can pop out to the lower-level deck to unwind in the hot tub!

When you want to take a nap, hit the hay, or just find a quiet space all to yourself, slip away to your private and convenient bedroom at this 3-bedroom cabin in Gatlinburg. Each of the welcoming bedrooms at this pet-friendly Gatlinburg cabin features a TV — one is another big screen — views of the trees, a king-size bed, and an en-suite bathroom. 

Peel away to enjoy a hot shower and slip into your PJs before movie night begins. Watch entertainment in bed anytime, and sleep in until noon if you like! Plus, there are 2 queen sleepers in the home you can set up for the kids or extra guests. 

Outdoor Spaces
For nature lovers, the great outdoors is where they’ll want to be. This Gatlinburg cabin rental is semi-private and boasts 2 decks — one with a steamy hot tub with massaging jets and a sitting area and the other with rocking chairs and a log picnic table. Spend time outside with a cup of coffee and a good friend, soak tired muscles after strolling the Parkway or hiking in the Smokies, and sway away your worries and cares in the mountain breezes. 

Wooded views surround the home and offer peaceful scenery to enjoy throughout your mountain retreat. The decks feature string lights to make your evening and nighttime experiences in the Smokies magical and cozy. And bear sightings are regular here, so you might spot a mama bear and her cubs! There’s also a great gas grill for cookouts together. 

When you arrive or gear up to head into town, the motorcycle-friendly, flat, paved driveway (with parking for 4 and room for a trailer) and 0-step entrance into the home make it easy to unload and pack the cars. Plus, the roads to the cabin are flat and paved, so driving around is easier when you stay at this Smoky Mountain vacation rental. 

Other Amenities
A Bear’s Pause is not only a comfy and convenient place to stay but also a pet-friendly cabin that welcomes your fur babies to join you on your Gatlinburg vacation. It sure beats finding a sitter or paying for services at a boarding facility! But mostly, it’s a great feeling to bring the whole family on vacation in the Smoky Mountains. 

This charming cabin in Gatlinburg also provides a washer/dryer so you can keep up with laundry while away and free high speed Wi-Fi so you can stay connected. And you’ll have keyless entry, which means there’s no need to stop by an office — simply check in and check out right at your rental cabin.

Community Amenities

You can also play at game tables, lift weights, shoot hoops, and enjoy tennis on lit courts. There’s even a large venue for special occasions that you can rent through the resort. And you can stroll along walking trails to reconnect with nature and loved ones.

Local Fun
A Bear’s Pause is located in a prime location near the ski slopes of Ober Gatlinburg, exciting downtown attractions, and a main entrance into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park — the most visited national park in the country and a great place to snap beautiful photos with mountain views and waterfalls! Plus, this Chalet Village cabin is easily accessible from the Gatlinburg bypass. 

It’s the perfect cabin for guests who wish to play and relax at their vacation rental yet be able to reach outdoor fun, downtown shopping, dining, and fun attractions — Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, Anakeesta, mini-golf courses, escape games, the crafts community, and oh-so-much more — within minutes.  

Not to mention, you’ll be within a short drive of more fun things to do together — like riding roller coasters at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, splashing at Soaky Mountain Waterpark in Sevierville, and hanging out at the Wears Valley Social Food Truck Park!

Gatlinburg SkyLift Park
Walk across the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America at the one and only Gatlinburg SkyLift Park. This scenic park features mountaintop dining, entertaining strolls in nature, and simply a nice place to take in the grand Smoky Mountain scenery.

The Peddler Steakhouse
Opt for fine dining while in the Great Smoky Mountains at The Peddler Steakhouse. This popular steakhouse is a staple in Gatlinburg that serves succulent steaks and sides and offers riverside seating to make dinner extra special.

Ole Smoky Moonshine
Sip and sample Ole Smoky Moonshine at the most visited distillery in the nation! This distillery — aka The Holler — is more than just a place to grab a few jars of shine to take back to the cabin. They have riveting tours, affordable samples, and souvenirs, too.

Reviews for A Bear's Pause

  • "We had an AMAZING experience at A Bear's Pause. Since the cabin was new to Cabins for You...we just took a chance and booked it without seeing pictures. When we walked into the cabin...we were in "awe" over how great it was! The beds were SOOOOOO comfy! Plenty of sheets/pillows/extra blankets to accommodate all 10 of us. The room downstairs was perfect for hanging out--the kids were able to play pool, darts and even get in the hot tub...we watched football and spread out--plenty of room. We even had a bear walk up onto the parking pad and hang out one evening! We had a GREAT time and will definitely book again!"

  • "Cabin was outstanding, really really clean when we checked in . Located in perfect spot for a quick trip to Ober Gatlinburg or Downtown . I can’t say enough good things to say about the Cabin. The Ferguson’s had a great time ."

  • "I stayed at a Bear’s Pause from March 18-20th 2022 for my birthday weekend. The cabin was not hard to find and I had no issues with accessing the cabin once I arrived. The cabin was clean, spacious and very cozy. My friends and I had a wonderful time and the scenery was breathtaking. I plan to return in the future."

  • "Renting was extremely easy, interaction was nice and friendly. Everything was nice and exactly what was expected"

  • "Had a wonderful time at our cabin. The cabin was really nice and clean. We enjoyed the hot tub and even had a couple of bear sightings."

  • "Beautiful and spacious cabin. Quiet location and we even saw four bears around the area. It is 5 minutes from Ober Gatlinburg and very close to downtown Gatlinburg. The arcade games were a big hit. I would note that if you are bringing dogs there isn’t really a yard for them to use the bathroom in. You can walk them along the road which gets the job done. I was nervous booking this cabin with no reviews but I would stay again."

  • "I really enjoyed the cabin. The fireplace was cozy. The cabin location was accessible and easy to get too. I will be booking again very soon."

  • "We came in for the parade ans this cabin was everything we could have wanted. Beautiful scenery, beautiful inside and out. Beds were very comfy, best sleep we have had in a while to be honest."

  • "We came to town from Texas for a basketball tournament at Rocky Top Sports world. My husband, myself and our 3 children (17,16 and 13) this cabin was PERFECT for us! It was so beautiful, and the views were amazing. Couldn't have asked for a better experience, we will be back very soon!"

  • ""cabins were very nice A few things broken like ottoman in living room and blind in kitchen but overall very nice Would stay there again""

  • "Our stay at The Bears Pause was great, we recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful secluded place to visit. The roads were a bit tricky but manageable. The cabin was well kept and the kitchen sufficiently supplied, but I do recommend preparing yourself with extra essentials as noted in the listing that you may want. Our only complaint is that the listing mentioned a pool table at the cabin but was an air hockey table instead. Something nonessential, lol. We had the pleasure of being welcomed on our first day with the presence of a black bear passing our cabin. We also enjoyed seeing another group of about 6 on our final day just before leaving. Overall our family of 6 had a wonderful visit, thank you!!! 😍"

  • "We had a great stay.very comfortable. Lots of wildlife to enjoy.kitchen was stocked with everything you needed to cook and vist together .great family time."

  • "Very nice, very clean, comfy and cozy. Had everything we needed. We enjoyed our stay so much and made wonderful memories with our family."

  • "Great cabin. We went up before Christmas and it was decorated so nice. Our neighbors own this and we have been looking forward to staying there. Very nice, well kept and no issues other than the curvy roads but that is expected being in the mountains. We had 4 adults and 3 small dachshunds and love that it was pet friendly!!! Very relaxing and the the fireplace was awesome. Our one dachshund loved watching it. He was mesmerized. Will be going back again."

  • "We had a great stay. We were supposed to have a condo but two days before we got a call that there were maintenance issues and we couldn’t stay there. Cabins for you gave us three choices of private cabins. We booked one with no additional cost. The drive was not for the faint at heart. But beautiful cabin with enough space . Thank you Cabins for you!"
