This two bedroom, two bath cabin is perfect for one or two couples, or a small family. Once inside the chalet, everything is on one level, which makes it a great option for families with small children. The great room boasts beautiful wood floors and comfy recliners, creating the perfect spot to relax in front of the fireplace while watching the game on TV. The dining area has a large table with four chairs and is perfect for both mealtime and playing cards or building that puzzle you’ve been meaning to work on.

Step outside onto the deck and take in the beautiful mountain views while cooking on the gas grill or soaking in the hot tub.

Down the hallway you’ll find a guest bath with a shower and sauna, along with two bedrooms. Each bedroom offers a king bed and TV, and the second bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a shower and a stacked washer/dryer.

During the summer months you’ll have access to three clubhouses on Ski Mountain that offer swimming and tennis.

Overall, the good quality I've come to expect from Mountain Laurel Chalets. If I could suggest one improvement, it would be to somehow simplify the "multi-remote" issue for the TVs.

We had a great stay in Bear Paw. The home was very clean and perfect for our family of 4. We enjoyed the Mountain Views while staying there. We seen 5 bears. One day we seen a bear outside in the driveway and later found out it was on our truck because we had bear paws all over the bed of our truck. Hence the name of the home! One bed frame in the room to the right needs to be replaced. It would squeak a lot when you moved. Also, we couldn’t get the tv to work in the other room. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.

What more can be said that I haven't said before. Third time we have stayed here and it is so perfect for us.
Housekeeping always does a bang up job as well as Mt Laurel Chalets. Hubby and I have back issues and I can't do stairs. It is perfect for that situation. I think the only thing I would recommend to the owners would be to put a hand held shower head in the big shower so if someone is a little challenged they could take a shower sitting down. I expect at some point to have to do that and would love to continue coming down and using only Bear Paw and that would be a huge plus. We love the recliners so please don't ever change that. Thank you for renting your home to us oldies. We appreciate your special attention and touches.

Yes! Bear Paw is in a fantastic location that allows you to enjoy all of the exciting downtown action, while also giving you a beautiful view of downtown when at the cabin. We love the comforting environment inside that allows you to relax with the family after a day of being out and about.

We reserved Angels Retreat because of the location and the amenities. We ended up at Bear Paw, which was nice and had a decent view, because after unloading everything into Angles Retreat (which is down a bunch of steps covered in snow) we noticed little black things all over the kitchen and dining area! There were mice droppings in the sink, on counter tops, on the floor, on top of the refrigerator, even a nest in one of the drawers! I've got pictures because I thought no one would ever believe just how bad it was! We immediately called the office which had closed but the phone rang and rang with no answer. We did not want to stay but could not get a hold of anyone (you need to put the afterhours number in your books in the chalet!!) An hour later I tried the number again and got the after hours number and luckily, Clint answered the phone! IF we ever rent from this company again it will be because of Clint! Within 20 minutes we had loaded our stuff back up and moved down to Bear Paw. He even made us promise to call him if anything at all was wrong with the new house. Do you know not one person has reached out to us from the office? Even when I called the day we were leaving, the person was really nice and when I told her who we were she didn't say a word and said "Great, I'll check you out." No apology not even a thank you for cleaning the stairs off at Angels Retreat! We didn't scream or yell about what happened and I have given them over 2 weeks to reach out to us with just a simple apology BUT NOPE NOT A WORD! Then they sent me a request for a review a second time! So here's your review: The after hours guy is worth gold but the property maintenance and office staff are useless. In 30 years of staying at chalets this is the first time we have ever encountered a rat infestation and it's also the first time we have used Mt. Laurel. For over $500 you would think they could at least check to make sure there are no mice and put salt down!

Manager's Response

I am sorry for your great disappointment and the lack of apology at your check out or thereafter. Clint is a part of our team and also serves as after hours service calls and we are glad to hear that Clint served your needs and made sure you were made right with this experience. We check our chalets between each booking and see that your inspection was done a few days before your arrival. In that amount of time, the critters were able to enter and leave proof. We are taking this feedback and have hired an additional inspector so that we can be in the homes the same day of your arrival to address these issues which happen in the mountains. As you checked out, it may have not been noted on the booking that this change was made and for that we deeply apologize for not providing an apology from the person who checked you out. We try to address issues immediately and from your feedback we will make sure to get updated reports in the future as a team to make sure that every guest who has an unfortunate experience is followed up with even after the situation has been addressed. We are glad that Clint provided you an opportunity to call him if there were any more concerns. We hope you will give us another opportunity to exceed expectations on your next visit.

We arrived soon after a snowstorm, but Gatlinburg City crews had treated the roads and Mountain Laurel Chalets had treated the driveway.
We enjoyed the gas grill, the sauna, the wood burning fireplace, etc. very much!
Our chalet was ver comfortable, homey, and had everything we needed in the kitchen.
We were very pleased and plan to return to Bear Paw some day.

We enjoyed our stay at Bear Paw, and would consider renting again. The only drawback to this property was the living room furniture. The sofa had reclining chairs which was a good/bad thing. The reclining aspect was nice, but it was uncomfortable laying crosswise due to the hard bars dividing the seating sections. If you were here in the summer doing lots of outdoor activities this would be a non-issue. However, we were spending the week enjoying family time, watching movies, etc, so this was a bit of a drawback for us. Otherwise the property was very private, the hottub was hot, the beds were comfortable, and the view was beautiful!

Had a great time, saw bears everyday. Nice view and comfortable chalet. Driveway was a challenge for a full size pickup truck (tight turn), but chalet parking area was great. I would give positive recommendations for the chalet.

This was one of the best cabins we have stayed at. The location was amazing and you could see the mountains through your window and from the deck. It was absolutely clean and spotless. It is spacious. We were a party of 2 adults and 2 kids and were really comfortable. The location is perfect and you are in Gatlinburg and yet away from the crowd. The property management was very responsive and helpful.
The drive to the property is pretty steep but you get used to it pretty quick.
We would be staying here again for sure on our next visit.

Bear Paw is a great chalet, and we are so glad that yo were able to enjoy it! We agree that the location is great, it allows you to enjoy Gatlinburg, but also feel so far away in the mountains. We always want to be very responsive to our guests, and make sure that we are helping them in any way we can! We look forward to having you back at Bear Paw for your next visit.

We loved Bear Paw!!

We absolutely loved our stay at Bear Paw!!! The view was amazing and the chalet was super clean! We had daily visits from bears. We had a bobcat walk up the driveway one evening. The squirrels and birds would visit the railing on the deck looking for some bread. The comical squirrels would even bunt their head against the chalet glass door to the deck letting you know they were there. We also had a shy sweet tabby cat that would stop by daily looking for some goodies. We sure do miss seeing all these furry and feathered guys!! :) We have stayed with MLC for many years and there is a good reason for that, they are the BEST!! Thank you so much for another awesome vacation!! Also the owners have done incredible work on this chalet, thank you for sharing your beautiful home!! We would love to stay again at Bear Paw!!!

We absolutely loved our stay at Bear Paw!! The view is amazing and the chalet was very clean! We had daily bear visits, including a mama bear that stopped by on two different days and nursed her three little cubs beside a tree by the deck and also at the top of the driveway to the chalet. We also saw a bobcat walk up the driveway one evening. The squirrels and birds would visit the railing on the deck daily looking for bread crumbs. The squirrels were so comical and would come up and bunt their head against the glass door to let you know that they were there. Also there is a sweet shy tabby cat that would stop by each day looking for some goodies.

This is our 2nd time in Bear paw but this time with Mt Laurel. Much better than last with Vrbo. Housekeeping does a fantastic job. Kitchen is fully stocked to cook there. Trimming was done so a better view. We are of the older generation so it's nice to have everything on one level including the ramp in...only 3 steps up to the ramp. Washer dryer a great plus. Only suggestion we would make is for safety reasons. Leaving out at bottom of driveway BE VERY CAREFUL. It's hard to see anything coming around that blind curve on your left. One of those mirrors we've seen on other curves would be excellent there. We actually came close to being hit one morning. Otherwise we would definitely stay there again and not hesitate to use Mt Laurel to rent from.

We really enjoyed our stay in Bear Paw during the last week in April 2021. The chalet has been nicely furnished abd updated with granite counters in the kitchen and both bathrooms, and the hardwood flooring throughout the living and dining areas is beautiful. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to prepare meals—just bring the food and you’re all set. Seating in the living room is comfortable but for tv viewing, it is limited to a sofa. Just some suggestions ... There is a recliner in a corner and it would be nice to rearrange a bit so the tv could be seen from it. Printed instructions for operating the main TV and the TVs in the bedrooms would be helpful, and a printed TV guide would be nice to have, as well. Some board games, books, DVDs, etc., would also be a nice touch.

The drive up to the chalet is quite steep in spots, but it’s doable and you get used to it after the first trip up. After all, you’ve got to climb a little bit to get to what most of us come to Gatlinburg for, the panoramic views of the mountains. Bear Paw certainly did not disappoint in that regard! It’s a very nice cozy, one-level chalet that would perfect for two couples or a small family. We’d be happy to stay there again!

Manager's Response

Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Bear Paw. The view from the deck is both relaxing and beautiful, so the steep drive is definitely worth it and quite manageable, just trust your car to get you there. We discovered a remote was missing for the living room television and got a replacement, so that may have contributed to your difficulty with operating the TV in the living room. The chalet is new to our program and was recently updated and the hot tub deck has been replaced as well. The homeowner also has plans to replace the railings so the view can be enjoyed from a seated position. We appreciate your other suggestions and hope you will call us again soon.

The chalet's view was beautiful! We were disappointed with the condition of the chalet. The deck is rotten with holes, the bathrooms are very outdated with mold in the showers, and the chalet doesn't have a clean look at all! The driveway is very steep and we can't imagine being able to get up it in the winter! We enjoyed our trip but disappointed with the chalet.

Manager's Response

Thanks for the review and we appreciate your comments very much. We regret the chalet did not meet your expectations and are taking steps to prevent that from happening with future guests of Bear Paw. Maintenance has inspected the deck and found one board with a weak spot in it, which they replaced. The owner will be replacing the entire deck as soon as rentals allow. Housekeeping will address the mold in the showers and go through the rest of the house as well. The driveway does have an incline, which is typical of homes on the mountain, but we take the steepness into consideration when we accept a house on our program and turn down anything we view as hazardous. If you are not used to mountain roads and driveways, it takes a few times driving them to adjust, but all roads on Ski Mountain are paved and two lane. Snow in winter is another story and we do a lot of scraping and salting of driveways. We hope you will consider staying with us again and enjoy the beauty of our area.

We've stayed at this chalet several times. This was our first stay with Mountain Laurel as the management company. The upgrades were very nice. Glad the carpet is gone in living and dining areas. The view was great in March. In August, the view is somewhat blocked from the tall trees. It would be nice if they were trimmed back some. Overall, it is a great place to stay, private but can be downtown in just a few minutes. We love this place!

This was certainly one of the best cabin stays we had. The place is perfect for a family of 4 or two couples. The cabin had everything we needed and more than enough kitchenware. The location is perfect but note the driveway is steep. You definitely need 4 wheel drive or tire chains if there’s snow. Mt. Laurel Chalets is an excellent management company and they went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable.

My sister and I took a last minute trip to Gatlinburg and rented Bear Paws for our stay. The house was perfect!! The driveway was a little scary, but do-able. The view of the mountains from the house was spectacular. I would definitely rent this house again.

We just took this house on our program, so you were the very first guests! We are delighted to hear you had a great stay and the house was perfect for you. If you aren't used to driving in the mountains, I'm sure the driveway was a bit scary, but I'll also guess it got easier every time. We look forward to having you back with us soon.
