Get cozy and unwind at Papa Bear, a 1-bedroom vacation rental on the lower level of a cabin triplex in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. This Gatlinburg condo offers space for up to 2 guests, perfect for honeymoons, romantic retreats, solo trips, and weekends away with a friend. Boasting a relaxing hot tub for soothing soaks, peaceful wooded views, TV entertainment, homey comforts, and a convenient location — this condo rental in the Great Smoky Mountains is a top pick for YOU.

Explore fun attractions, Appalachian stores, distilleries, restaurants, seasonal events, and oh-so-much more along the Parkway. Or enjoy the great outdoors with wondrous wildlife and breathtaking mountain views in the national park. Then return to your cozy condo in Gatlinburg to take it easy for a while, watching movies on the TV, reading books, cuddling with your partner, or chilling in the hot tub.

Easily prepare breakfast in the full kitchen or use the charcoal grill for burgers, steaks, and kabobs at lunch or dinner. Enjoy wooded views as you sip your coffee in the morning or as the sun sets through the trees at night. The bedroom offers an additional TV plus a king-size log bed, and the bathroom offers a shower/tub combo for added convenience. And for those cool mountain evenings, curl up in front of the electric (heated) fireplace!

Additional amenities at this Gatlinburg condo include keyless entry, high speed Wi-Fi, and private parking. And if you’re traveling with a group, you can book Papa Bear with the other 2 levels at this Gatlinburg cabin triplex — Mama Bear and Baby Bear — as The Three Bears Retreat. You’ll have plenty of space plus fun extras for a memorable family vacation or a mountain getaway with friends.

Living Room
After a full day of fun in the Smokies, having your own living space to kick back and unwind for a spell is lovely. With an open concept, wood floors, tree views, and log furnishings, you get that mountain cabin feel in a convenient Gatlinburg condo.

Switch on the TV for entertainment while you lounge on the sofa or crack open that book you’ve been itching to read in the armchair. For more fun and games, there’s a foosball table! Cool tonight? Flip on the electric, heated fireplace to make your Gatlinburg condo rental extra cozy. It’s also a nice extra to help create a romantic setting to rekindle your love and reconnect with your spouse.

When you want a bite to eat or need something to drink, the fully equipped kitchen offers everything you need to prepare and serve whatever you like at this mountain condo in Gatlinburg, TN. Appliances include a full-size refrigerator, an electric range with an overhead microwave, a dishwasher, a toaster, and a blender. For coffee and hot drink enthusiasts, you’ll have a standard drip coffeemaker for full pots plus a Keurig for single cups!

Counter space is plentiful and open to the rest of the living and dining spaces. There’s a breakfast bar with 2 seats, where you can enjoy cups of joe, snacks, and even meals together. A window overlooking the trees sits over the double sink. And you’ll have pots, pans, dishware, glassware, cooking utensils, cutlery, and mugs.

Bring snacks and drinks from home, buy fresh ingredients and treats from a local farmers market, and leave the rest to your vacation home’s wonderfully outfitted kitchen!

Dining Area
Set the dining table at your Smoky Mountain condo rental for a homemade breakfast, freshly grilled lunch, or takeout dinner from Alamo Steakhouse in Gatlinburg. The table is just off the kitchen, keeping seconds and refills on hand. There are 2 chairs plus a bench for more space. The table is ideal for enjoying mealtimes together as well as board games, cards, puzzles, and crafts. And this space is useful for setting up a laptop to work as needed.

Rest, relax, and dream of your great time at the Gatlinburg Craftmen’s Fair, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, or Dollywood in your king suite at this 1-bedroom condo in the Smokies. A king-size log bed calls your name whenever you want to take a nap or hit snooze for the night. Furnishings are made of logs as well, adding even more cabin vibes.

A ceiling fan keeps you cool on warmer nights in the mountains. Nightstand lamps allow you to wind down with a book or chat with your partner before heading to dreamland. If you like, there’s a dresser to unpack and make yourself at home. And you’ll have a mounted TV for added entertainment while lounging in bed!

The full bathroom at your Gatlinburg condo rental has a shower/tub combo for soothing bubble baths or hot showers on your Smoky Mountain vacation. Enjoy a relaxing bath morning, noon, or night.

Outdoor Spaces
When you’re not visiting the Smoky Mountain Fairy House, kayaking with friends, or hiking trails to waterfalls, enjoy the outdoor spaces at your condo in Gatlinburg. Trees surround the property, inviting songbirds, adorable animals, and nature to your Gatlinburg vacation. Enjoy the lovely wooded views while soaking in your private hot tub daily. You can cook out with the charcoal, picnic-style grill. And there are chairs on your deck for coffee sips and chats in the great outdoors.

While staying at the lower-level unit of this cabin triplex in Gatlinburg, you’ll have your own parking area off the curvy, gravel driveway, meaning you won’t have to share with the other 2 units.

Other Amenities
Additional conveniences at your Gatlinburg condo include fast and free Wi-Fi to stay connected and keyless entry for self check-in and checkout right at the property.

For more space and bonus on-site amenities — including a massage chair plus foosball and air hockey games — book this entire cabin triplex as The Three Bears Retreat or add Baby Bear or Mama Bear to your stay!

And you can head into neighboring Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and Wears Valley for even more fun things to do together, like splash at water parks, ride roller coasters, sample food truck best-sellers, and visit gardens.
