I, Charlene, have visited the Great Smoky Mountain National Park since I was a child. I introduced the mountains to my husband, Bruce and daughter, Ansleigh. We have vacationed in Gatlinburg, several times a year, for the last 13 years. During the last 8 years we have actively searched for a cabin. God blessed us with the perfect cabin and even a rental cabin in September, 2009. We were fortunate to buy ‘Bear Paws’ in 2010. We were also blessed with jobs, I am a teacher and Bruce is working for with the National Park service. Bruce makes sure everything is perfect in the cabins. Our daughter loves her school. We have a boxer, Lily, who even loves the beautiful walks, and especially the wildlife.
