We loved little bear!! It was such a cute and cozy place to stay! The rental was clean and perfect for us!! The view was beautiful and the hot tub was fantastic!! We loved everything about this place! It was in the perfect spot! 10 minutes from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge! We have zero complaints about this place! We will definitely be back!!!
Thanks for the review and we are happy to hear that Little Bear was the perfect spot to spend time in the Smokies. The location on the north end of Ski Mountain makes it very easy to get to downtown Gatlinburg, the entrance to the national park or pigeon forge is just a few minutes. Plus, because you are on a mountain, you enjoy a fantastic view! We look forward to hearing from you again soon.

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at Little Bear with our two "little bears". The cabin was the perfect size, well-maintained, and very clean. Excellent customer service. We will be booking with Mountain Laurel Chalets again in the future!
We love sweet Little Bear too! It's a perfect place for a small family to stay and play together all on one level. The big covered deck is a great spot to relax in the hot tub after a day or hiking or shopping. We are glad to hear you had a great visit and look forward to seeing you again soon.

What a great little cabin!

Our 2nd stay at Little Bear..first was in 2006. The area has changed so much as a result of the fires, but the cabin was still the same, quiet, quaint place it was.<br/>Perfect spot for a sisters' week and the addition of the hot tub and spacious new deck was a great improvement over our previous stay.<br/>The driveway was a bit challenging for 2 vehicles, but we managed to work it out.<br/>Overall a great place, wonderful stay, relaxing and we will definitely be back to this cabin in the future. Thanks for a lovely vacation!
Thanks for the memories. It was nothing short of a miracle that Little Bear did not burn with everything else on that street. The fire fighters cut a section of the living room wall out and managed to save the house. I'm not even sure why they were at that house, but we are sure grateful. The porch was expanded a few years ago to enhance the outside living area and was a great improvement. As a result of the wildfire, the view is much improved looking at the mountains, but the burned area is hardly noticeable out back. Little Bears is a special place and we aer glad you were able to visit again. We look forward to seeing you in the mountains again.

Nice two bedroom cabin. Everything worked well, appliances, WiFi, plumbing etc. Very quiet. Only drawback is the steep driveway. You have to turn around and enter it straight on or you will drag the front end of your vehicle. The view has changed over the years as more cabins have been built since the fire. You mainly look over more cabins from the deck.If you want a more scenic view, you may want to stay at another cabin from Mountain Laurel.
Thanks for the review and the heads up on the driveway. Future renters of Little Bear who have bigger vehicles should go to the end of the cul-de-sac and turn to hit the driveway straight on. The view has dramatically changed since the wildfires ravaged that side of the mountain in 2016, but homes are being rebuilt slowly. There have always been properties below Little Bear, you just could not see them because there were more trees to have to look through. There are not many chalets that offer a view without seeing other houses, but there are a few. We look forward to your next visit.

The rental experience was wonderful. The unit was clean, quiet, and had amazing views of the mountains. The management company was helpful and professional. I will definitely rent here again.
Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your time at Little Bear. It is the perfect vacation spot for a couple or small family with a peaceful setting on the mountain. The location is very convenient to both Pigeon Forget and Gatlinburg. We are glad you had a good experience with our staff and look forward to your return.

This is the second time we stayed at this location. Thanksgiving 2019 and Christmas 2020. This time we got lots of snow and almost was not able to make it back to the cabin due to the number of vehicles abandoned in the middle of the road coming up the mountain due to the icy roads. Luckily we made it back via alternate route before that route got blocked as well later on after we went through. Cabin is much larger than the pictures make it look. Driveway is quite steep; 4 wheel drive recommended 4 wheel drive and chains required if snow and ice is present. Barely made up the driveway in our jeep wrangler 4 wheel drive with chains due to the snow and ice Christmas Eve. Saw a bobcat cross the road in front of the cabin while walking. Definitely recommend this cabin and we would stay here again for a third time. Be prepared if coming during winter months if freezing weather is expected (food, water, 4 wheel drive, chains, etc.). We were not able to leave the cabin for ~40 hours until roads were drivable again and cars were removed from blocking the roads.
Anyone here Dec 24th got a nice white Christmas and the travel headaches that come with it. Unfortunately, many people don't come prepared for bad weather and it can result in abandoned cars on the sides of the road on the mountain, especially this time because it fell so thick, so fast. We are glad to hear that you did prepare and got to enjoy the quiet beauty of the snow tucked safely in a mountain cabin. By the way, we were VERY fortunate to keep power that night. Thousands of homes all over the county were in the dark for several days, but Ski Mountain was spared. Little Bear is in the county, not the city limits of Gatlinburg, and we were fortunate that the county street crews were able to scrape the roads so soon after the snow. Let us know when you are ready to head back to Little Bear.

The cabin was so cute! It was clean and comfortable. We loved the hot tub and the back deck. The view is beautiful! Unfortunately we did not see any bears on the property. The drive up is a little scary at first but you get used to it. The only complaint is that the bathroom needs to be updated. The sink in the bathroom is oddly short. Overall we had a great time and we will come back!
Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed Little Bear. The hot tub deck was expanded last year and it was a great addition along with opening the view up a bit more. The driveway can be tricky the first time, but it gets easier with room to turn around at the top. We will pass along your comments about the bathroom to the homeowner and hope you can come see us again soon.

We loved our stay at the Little Bear cabin! Very cozy, clean and beautiful views! When we arrived we felt very welcome, I was disappointed that i received an email about bringing extra toilet paper and necessities and when we arrived we only had 2 half used rolls of toilet paper in the room. The water in the shower was also difficult to adjust the temperature. The road leading up to the cabin was very steep, there were not many guardrails lining the way. If someone was to wreck or meet other vehicles in some of the curves, it would be deadly. Hopefully this is something they are trying to improve!

This is the perfect place for our little family of 3, and out of all the years we've been staying with Mountain Laurel, this is one of very few that we have stayed in for repeat stays. Amazing view, nice open layout, really quiet and cozy bedrooms. Far enough away to relax, but close enough to get anywhere via the main drag and/or the bypass. Everything works, all the necessities are there and amenities are as described. We didn't see any bears or wild turkeys at this chalet, this year - but they were out and about in other areas of Gatlinburg and the National Park.<br/><br/>We stayed in October 2020, during the pandemic, and the new check in/out and cleaning protocols from Mountain Laurel were great. The sanitizer they used on all of the surfaces did leave a little bit of a residue, so we used a Clorox wipe to clean that up, a bit. This was no big deal, though, as we felt more at ease with the extra effort of sanitization - another reason that solidified how much we love Mountain Laurel.<br/><br/>Since it was a pandemic, we didn't go to a lot of our favorite shops or restaurants, but we did do a lot more hiking and exploring outdoor activities, which was honestly a really nice change, and gives us more places to add to our must-see list when we come back next year.
Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your time in the mountains once more. Most of our operations have had to adjust to accommodate safety requirements due to the pandemic, but we are learning a lot and will likely keep some of the changes that are working out better. Being forced off the main drag and into the mountains sounds like a nice change for your family as well. This area has so much to offer and we hope you are able to come back soon to add to your must-see list.

Spent 4 days here. Booked last minute and was PLEASANTLY surprised. Clean and well maintained. Beds and couches were a little uncomfortable. But all being said, we weren't there for the couches and beds. It was a nice place for what we needed.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Little Bear and appreciate the review. This little spot is perfect for a couple or a small family and is easy to get off the mountain to Pigeon Forge. We hope you are able to return soon.

Really enjoyed our stay - the cabin was the perfect size for my husband and I. We really liked the open kitchen to family room and it's something we look for in any cabin rental. The hot tub was a plus and in great working order (sometimes, that's not the case). We also loved the location - easy access to the Gatlinburg bypass and 321 to other areas of the park. Would recommend that the kitchen be stocked with actual spatulas and updated skillets (handles on ours were all wobbly). Shower controls are very outdated as well - took awhile to get figure out how to get the shower temperature figured out.
Thanks for the review and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Little Bear. The cabin is spacious, but not too big for two people and being on one level makes it perfect for people of all ages. We will check on the skillets and kitchen utensils and are happy to hear you figured out the temperature control for the shower - there are so many styles that it can be confusing at times. We hope to see you back in the mountains soon.

We really enjoyed our vacation. The house is located in a very good place, on top of a mountain. Prepare for scenic drive to the house and amazing view from the patio and windows. There are bears around the house, we've seen them a few times. They hide when they see you. Inside rooms were cleaned and we had everything we needed. A few suggestions to improve guests experience: queen size bad is squeaking a little, it will be nice if it can be fixed; additional hooks will help to keep cloth and bags in order; office where keys should picked up and dropped off is 8 minutes away from the house, maybe electronic keys can be introduced.
Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay in Little Bear. The cabin is in a great location between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. You can take either Ski Mountain Road by our office or Wiley Oakley Drive next to the Gatlinburg Welcome Center. Convenient to both cities! The bears have made appearances all over the mountain this year and are always a thrill to see, but please lock your car doors. They are curious creatures and have figured out how to open car doors! We look forward to your return visit.

The cabin was much bigger than we had expected from the pictures when we first booked. This is a great place to stay. I would recommend a 4 wheel drive if you are staying when freezing temps are expected because driveway is quite steep. Cabin was clean and had no issues while we were there. Something had exploded in the microwave prior to our stay and was not cleaned up, but other than that everything was great. Location was perfect. Approximately halfway between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Would definitely stay at this cabin again.
Thank you for your review and we apologize for the mess in the microwave. A 4 wheel drive or time chains are a good idea when we could get snow, but you are right about the location. Pigeon Forge is 6 miles away and Gatlinburg 2, so it is convenient to everything! We hope you can return soon.

As usual, the chalet was very clean and enjoyable. We have rented chalets from Mt. Laurel for many years, and always are very pleased. My only small problem what that firewood was not supplied for the fireplace (except for one small bundle) and had to be purchased extra (never had to do that before).

Cozy chalet in the Smokies. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay. On our last morning the chalet across the street got visited by a teenager black bear. The hot tub on the front porch was great! I would warn all future visitors to make sure brakes on car work, but the chalet is somewhat deeper into mountains and lots of twists and turns and steeper inclines especially the driveway, but is a fun adventure. Would stay here again. We love Mountain Laurel Chalets! It is our 2nd experience with them and will keep returning.
Thank you for your review and we Love your Review Title. So glad you got to see a bear from a distance. Remember they can open car doors, so Always Lock Your Doors! See you again soon.

THE Chalet is very nice, 2nd visit to this one. Stove needs replacing bad. But it is in a very good location and well equipped. Have recommended to several friends.
Thank you for your review Ms. Wirth. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the chalet and will give you input on the stove to the homeowner. Please visit us again soon.

My family of four and I came to Little Bear for the weekend. It was everything we needed for a nice relaxing weekend together. My oldest son enjoyed building a fire with me in the rustic fireplace. We all enjoyed the convenience to the Parkway which made it a quick trip to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.
Thank you for the review and we are happy your family enjoyed their stay and worked on those fire building skills. Please remember us when you plan your next trip to the Smokies.

WE WERE OK WITH THE REBUILT AND FRESHLY REFINISHED CABIN ITSELF BUT GREATLY SADDENED BY THE AMOUNT OF DEVASTATION ON THE MOUNTAIN AND THAT WE WERE PRETTY MUCH ALONE IN OUR CABIN AND FELT A LITTLE UNSAFE. POOR WEATHER DIDN'T HELP MUCH EITHER! BEEN TO THIS CABIN A FEW TIMES IN THE PAST.

This is a nice little cabin for a couple or small family. It is located at the top of the mountain above where the Gatlinburg welcome center is. It is one of the few cabins that escaped the fire on the Wiley-Oakley side. <br/><br/>Cabin was very clean with a great fireplace. Furniture was new and comfortable. The kitchen was older but the appliances worked very well.

The two of us spent a lovely long weekend at Little Bear and we could not have been more pleased. The location was quiet and secluded with a beautiful view, and the property was well maintained, clean and very accommodating for our needs. Far enough from the main drag to have privacy but not far enough to be too distant. Every member of the staff that we spoke with was extremely friendly and genial as well.

Our experience was fantastic. Little Bear was everything it was advertised to be. My wife was very happy with the cleanliness, location and the privacy that our cabin provided. It was so nice to come home to a quiet place after enjoying the mountain activities all day; every day. We also enjoyed grilling our suppers every evening and just listening to the birds and wildlife. Way better than a hotel room. I will never stay in a motel, when a Mountain Laurel Chalet is available!

The chalet was nice and clean. It was minimally stocked, but enough for 2 people for the w/e. The hot tub was clean and spacious, but not all of the jets worked. The chalet needs some updates, but it was comfortable and clean. The toilet didn't always flush fully, but we reported this. Not sure someone actually came up to fix/look at it. Overall, a nice place.
We are glad that you all enjoyed Little Bear and appreciate your review. We look forward to your next visit to the Smoky Mountains.

Little bear was clean and well maintained. I have stayed in better cabins for less money though. The couch needs replaced, it's obviously someone's favorite. There is no privacy on the deck. For all of us self conscience folks, we don't like neighbors staring while we are out on the deck having a drink or two. The location is good if you like going to gatlinburg or pigeon forge either one. The mountain views weren't as good as what I expected either. The staff at Mtn. Laurel is always friendly and helpful. I would recommend this property to a friend but will inform them not to have to high of expectations.

The place was nice. The driveway was very steep we arrived on a rainy evening and had to try several time to get up the driveway. Once we succeeded it was beautiful. First thing the next day we got the pleasure of seeing a mama bear and cub right out our cabin window. The couch was a bit broken down. Overall the place was nice including inside and out. I would recommend staying here.

The cabin was wonderful, although we were disappointed not to see any wildlife, it had everything you could want or need for your stay. The bed was comfy, the spa hot and washer/dryer to boot. I would warn you that the roads and signage is quite tricky to work out in the dark, maybe plan to be home after sunset. Taking the $300 off the credit card as apposed to a hold on the credit card was a bit annoying, it took 10 days to be redeposited.

The layout of this cabin is fabulous. The deck with the hot tub and grill being in the same living space as the kitchen and living room is conducive to multiple activities and continued interaction. The cabin was clean and spacious. The bedroom is around the corner, away from the living areas. Again, another great design. Even though we were near other cabins, the foliage prevents viewing and interaction. Having coffee in the morning on this deck was a calming experience.<br/>The cabin is near to the trolley, where you can park for free and ride for a minimal charge. It is also a reasonable distance to the grocery store. When at the cabin, it feels like you are out in the mountains.<br/>The driveway is steep and if your car has low clearance you will need to turn around and enter by making a right turn. <br/>Only issue is that not all windows have screens and one of the windows with screens had a scary looking spider. That window stayed closed! Everything else was great. Would totally stay at this one again.

Maintenance man attempted to fix it and said it would be up to temp in an hour. That did not happen. So no hot tub fri. Woke up sat morning and hot tub was at temp. And working fine. LB was clean and comfortable. The TV in the bedroom does not get a signal so no TV. Wifi has a good connection. LB is a nice and cozy cabin.

We have stayed in several rental cabins in the area. Getting a little older & just the two of us, this cabin was just about perfect. The cabin is nicely appointed and comfortable. Nice view in late October, when the leaves are turning and some are already on the ground. The road up can be a challenge as the cabin is near the mtn top and driveway is steep, but most are that way and so this was expected.

Beautifully decorated (just like the pictures show). Scary driveway up the hill - (like others have mentioned). The water pressure in shower and toilet leave a lot to be desired. But it is a very nice place and the hot tub worked on those cool nites. The Mt. Laurel Chalet people were very nice at check in and towel exchanges. I would recommend this place to a friend.

It was as the pictures depicted. Nice, clean, furnished, and peaceful. We saved a ton of money by cooking breakfast and dinner there. The bed was comfortable, the hot tub was just what we needed. The down side was there was no steps to the hot tub, we found a step ladder to use.The directions to the cabin were confusing, but we found the short cut that put us between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

It is fairly secluded and private. The drive up the mountain to get to it was daunting at first, but we got used to it. The driveway is also very steep. We plan to visit again in the future with our 3 children. We had a wonderful time.

Hot tub experience ruined whole trip. Management lowers temp to lowest possible setting to save a few pennies BUT does not offer any cautionary advice to occupants to allow significant amount of time to raise temperature to a (hot) temperature. Hence our (cool)tub experience pretty much ruined our experience. We do not own a hot tub, know little about their operation and we did read all of the material in the handbook provided in the unit. it said nothing about operating temps or settings or heat times. Consequently by the time we figured it out our opportunity to use it was over. A refrigerator magnet told us all about refrigerator use do and don'ts and other unnecessary facts about refrigerators most normal people would already know since everyone OWNS A REFRIGERATOR. We are returning to the area in October but will go with a competitor.
