About Julie

My husband and I purchased this home in February of 2012. We have worked hard to make this an enjoying place for everyone. We hope you love it as much as we do. Our sons also enjoy coming here. My oldest son is married and he and his wife love it here too. We put new flooring up and and down and did so other renovations. The lower level now has its own heating and cooling thermostat. We had professionals come in and take care of the wall and landscaping giving this the clean curb appeal that all will enjoy.

Julie purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Julie chose Chalet Village

The Mountain view, and the amazing view of Downtown Gatlinburg, the tram passing by is an amazing view too, The creek you can see and hear at different times of the year. There is so much to love. I couldn't begin to name them all. We are truly blessed to be able to own this cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

You can use all of the facilities of the Chalet Village owners club. With three pools, a tennis court, meeting rooms for just about any occasion. Wedding facilities and just about anything you can think of.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Belgium family loved their stay and they saw many bears. Pierre said he hasn't seen a bear in over 16 years and that was at the zoo. They posted great pictures on their facebook page. They love America and plan to return to our cabin!

Christmas in the Smokies

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at PapaBears Den!!! We came up for the Christmas parade. Beautiful home, & beautiful views. The owners were a delight to work with all the way around. We had every accommodation necessary (and more) in making wonderful holiday memories with our family. Word of caution, the driveway is a little tricky for a family size vehicle such as a full size truck or suburban, but this is common for this area. We hope to return for a visit in the summer.

Owner's Response: I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay! I’m also glad you had everything you needed and more we try to think of everything anyone might need. I guess I forgot something important there is a trick to the driveway that makes is easy for even a full size Recreational Vehicle to make it to the top of the driveway. If you stay as far to the left hand side of the driveway. Then when you get to the center back to the wall and the post where the pole with cable is and then you pull right up the driveway. When I’ve mentioned it to guest their like that’s so easy why didn’t I think of it! They no longer have any issues. Sorry I forgot! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We can’t wait for you to come back! Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! Julie

Awesome Cabin !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this lovely 3 bedroom cabin . It was perfect for our family . We spent a lot of time on the amazing deck and we were lucky to see the peak of the autumn leaves . The hot tub was nice and hot . The cabin is beautifully decorated! Everyone loved the upstairs game room with pool table and jukebox . Loved the kitchen and the fireplaces . The bedrooms were perfect and beds were comfy. Also close to the park for hiking, Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. Everything was just perfect! Thanks to the owners for sharing their cabin and even checking up on our stay . We will be back!

WONDERFUL cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Papa Bear’s Den. The beds were comfortable, the game room was extremely enjoyable. The whole family had a blast playing pool, video games and the juke box was a very nice extra!! Everything was beautifully decorated. We loved the deck and waving to the people on the tram. Our last night we even had a bear sighting. Thank you Julie for calling and checking on us!!

Thanks to the many people that have reached out to us through phone calls and emails expressing their concern for us and our property. It has been overwhelming. The fact we were there and survived was amazing! The fact our property is still standing is another blessing. We want to thank everyone of our past guest and future guest for their prayers!
