A luxurious new build in the Chalet Village community of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, Bear Watch offers the best of mountain living. The exterior features gorgeous wood beams, stone details, and black ironwork for a rustic-industrial look. The views of the Smokies are truly incredible, and the interiors feature high-end finishes, stylish décor, entertainment, and modern amenities to elevate any stay in the Smokies. Treat yourself to a beautiful mountain getaway in this 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom cabin with space for up to 6 guests, whether it’s a fun and romantic couples’ weekend, a break with close friends, or a great family vacation.

At Bear Watch, spread out across 2,400 square feet of new cabin space, where you can start mornings with a cup of coffee on the sunny deck, end evenings soaking in the outdoor hot tub in the shade, and spend days relaxing in the rocking chairs, watching TV on the flatscreens in bed, shooting pool, grilling out on the open deck, whipping up delicious meals in the fully equipped kitchen, and unwinding on the sofas in front of the big screen TV.

Bear Watch is outfitted with convenient amenities like a washer/dryer, Wi-Fi, and level parking for 3 cars, and it also keeps you entertained with 5 large flatscreen TVs and cable TV in the cabin. The 3 large bedroom suites are their own little retreats, and the peaceful location on a cul-de-sac with little traffic ensures a relaxing stay. Bear Watch also decorates for Christmas, keeping your holidays merry and bright – even when you’re away!

And don’t forget about the community amenities in Chalet Village, which include 3 clubhouses, outdoor pools, horseshoes and shuffleboard, ping pong and game tables, walking trails, playground areas, drink machines, FREE Wi-Fi, and more!

As you step inside at Bear Watch, a beautiful foyer with rustic chandelier, console tables, black bear rug, and barrel table with barstools greets you. Come in, drop your bags, and get ready to live the mountain life.

Living Room
Soaring ceilings and windows that stretch across the cabin keep the living room of Bear Watch feeling open and airy. On warm days, flip on the ceiling fan to keep the room comfortable and cool. On cold mountain nights, enjoy the cozy gas fireplace that features stacked stone and a large flatscreen TV. Plush seating includes a sofa, loveseat, and reclining chair, all great for unwinding in front of the TV and chatting with family and friends after long days hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or exploring downtown Gatlinburg. Stack snacks and drinks on the coffee table, break out a deck of cards for some solitaire when everyone else has called it a night, or flip on the lamp and do some reading.

The living room opens to the kitchen, allowing guests to chat and not miss a beat while relaxing on the sofa, cooking up a storm, or playing games or eating at the dining table just steps away. This all also opens to the entryway with a barrel table, so the whole group can hang out together while doing their own thing here.

Next to the lovely living room is the fully equipped kitchen, complete with black-and-stainless steel appliances, beautiful countertops, and warm wood cabinets. Pendant lights complete the look, and barstools around the breakfast bar and island offer extra seating and a great place to hang while cooking or having a drink.

When you’re ready to cook, take advantage of the double-door refrigerator with icemaker, oven with glass stovetop, microwave, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, and a dishwasher for easy cleanup. You can easily feed the group here, or you can just have an easy place to spread out leftovers, pizza from downtown, or simple snacks.

Dining Table
Along with the barstools around the countertops in the kitchen, Bear Watch offers a 6-person dining table for group meals. All guests can sit down for mealtime here, whether it’s a couples’ dinner, a big family breakfast, or passed-down recipes during the holidays.

When mealtime is over, use this table as your game-night hub! Bring your favorite board games or card games and spend evenings gathered here playing, laughing, and hanging out late into the night. Need to catch up on some work? Bring your laptop and set up shop, taking advantage of the Wi-Fi in the cabin. The kids can also use this as their brick building and crafting spot (or for cookie decorating during the holidays).

Rec Room
In addition to the main living room, Bear Watch offers a rec room with a pool table, a new multicade game, a large flatscreen TV, recliners, and a leather sofa for relaxing. It’s yet another wonderful space to spend time together in this gorgeous new Gatlinburg cabin. The rec room also has a mini fridge, cabinets for snacks, and a wet bar – perfect for keeping cold drinks and game snacks on hand.

It’s bedtime at Bear Watch, and the 3 large bedroom suites are calling you! The bedrooms are spread across 2 levels, offering more privacy for guests. Upstairs, find 1 king suite; suites downstairs include 1 king size bed and 1 queen size bed. Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom, and an additional half bath in the cabin is very convenient.

Bedrooms include nightstands, bedside lamps, dressers for unpacking, and their own large flatscreen TVs so there’s no fighting over the remote on vacation. In all, you’ll have space to sleep up to 6 guests in Bear Watch.

Outdoor Spaces
No Smoky Mountain vacation is complete without some time spent in the great outdoors. Bear Watch makes it easy, even when you don’t leave the cabin, to enjoy the sights, sounds, and peace of the Smokies. Gorgeous mountain views are enjoyed from 2 back decks, and the hot tub has its own little corner of the deck for relaxing soaks surrounded by the trees. The decks also have rocking chairs, bench seating, deck chairs, and a nice grill for cookouts. And with a mix of covered and open spaces on the deck, you can find just the right amount of sun or shade.

More conveniences outside at Bear Watch include level parking for 3 cars, meaning easier arrivals and simple trips into town. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, Bear Watch gives you more peace perched among the mountains.

Other Amenities
Bear Watch has you covered, from relaxing to playing to feeling comfortable and at home. You’ll have 5 large flatscreen TVs, Wi-Fi, and a washer/dryer where you can wash towels after days swimming at the community pools in Chalet Village.

Community Amenities
Chalet Village is incredibly convenient near downtown Gatlinburg, ensuring a short drive to the dozens of attractions, shops, and restaurants in the area.

Splash around in summertime, play horseshoes and shuffleboard, let the kids loose on the playground, stroll the walking trails, take advantage of lighted tennis courts, and more.

Reviews for Bear Watch 1011

  • "The cabin is very nicely decorated and extremely well equipped. It has anything you’d need for a wonderful stay. The hot tub was great and no trouble to operate. The cabin was very clean too. Unlike a previous cabin we rented, the drive was not scary getting to the cabin. We saw a mama bear and her two cubs within the first hour of arrival"
