Come and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the gorgeous Smoky Mountains from this beautifully appointed 3 bedroom 2 bathroom condo. Envision yourself gazing out from the family room and balcony, a cup of hot cocoa or ice cold lemonade in hand, as the sun shines through the pines or snowflakes drift lazily down from the sky. Watch the mist come up over the mountains from one of TWO balconies. This top floor unit offers stunning views of downtown Gatlinburg, overlooking the ski slopes of Ober Gatlinburg, and the Great Smoky Mountains including Mount LeConte, one of the tallest mountains in the eastern United States. The condominium has all the comforts of home so you can just relax and enjoy. The condo is a corner unit that gives more light, windows and more views, and is kept extremely clean, smoke free and pet free. Our resort offers an indoor pool and jacuzzis, an outdoor pool, and on-site washers/dryers. Our family purchased this condo for our own and our guests' enjoyment. It was previously used just as an owners retreat. The unit has a large loft with two twin beds as an extra bonus. Kids love to hang out in the loft and play. Our children call it their own private tree house. The loft even has a sky light so the kids can watch the stars come out while lying in bed. Renovations and upgrades are done continuously. In 2020, every window was replaced so you can enjoy even more the incredible views of the Great Smoky Mountains. The kitchen was remodeled in 2019. In 2018, brand new beds were bought for both bedrooms and the loft, and a new ceiling fan was installed in the family room. For 2017, a brand new select queen-size sleeper sofa and matching love seat were added. In 2016, the guest bathroom was totally remodeled. In the kitchen, a new whisper quiet dishwasher was installed. For 2015, the master bathroom was completely remodeled. New glass was installed in the sliding doors leading to the balcony further enhancing our views from the family room. Every room has a ceiling fan, and the 20 foot tall vaulted ceiling in the family room gives our condo a spacious alpine feel. Open both balcony doors, and let the mountain breeze fill your home with fresh air. Both the master bedroom and the guest bedroom have queen-size beds. With the additional queen-size sleeper sofa bed, your home can sleep 8 people comfortably. Plenty of room for all to have a most peaceful vacation. Dancing Bear is the largest unit in the complex at 1100 square feet, and is located on the top floor so you will not be disturbed by anyone above you. Because we are on the top floor, no matter what the time of year, we offer the most breathtaking views you have ever seen. Conveniently located to Ober Gatlinburg, downtown Gatlinburg, and the main Park Entrance, there is so much to do - from hiking, shopping, mini golf, the Aquarium, and of course, Ripley's Believe It Not. Not to mention all the incredible restaurants, and Dollywood in Pigeon Forge just down the road from Gatlinburg. Whether you curl up by the wood burning fireplace (with free unlimited wood provided), take in the sites in town, or just simply enjoy the most amazing year round views of the mountains, you will want to come back to Dancing Bear time and time again. Thank you for taking the time to learn about our home, and we hope you choose Dancing Bear for your vacation getaway.More

About the neighbourhood
Our mountain getaway is located just minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg with all the kids attractions, shopping, and restaurants, as well as the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Ober Gatlinburg is just 1 mile away, and offers 4 seasons of family fun, from a water park in the summer to skiing and snow tubing in the winter. In addition, our complex is the only one on the mountain that offers both an indoor pool with jacuzzis, and an outdoor pool. The biggest attraction for staying in our unit is the most spectacular views of the mountains. Our home is the perfect blend of both a condo and a cabin. The 20-foot tall vaulted ceiling gives it a real mountain feeling. The two balconies give everyone a chance to enjoy the outdoors and are really wonderful. Children love the kids lof...
Getting around
For a change of pace -- drive to Ober Gatlinburg and take the tram into town.
