CLIFFSIDE HIDEAWAY (formerly known as Happy Bear Chalet) is a newer property that is family-oriented, comfortable, relaxing, fun, cozy, romantic, luxurious, WHEELCHAIR-FRIENDLY. It is ideally located for whatever adventure guests wish to undertake and enjoy! This is a NO SMOKING PROPERTY!!!!!

The SHORT, 1.3 MILE DRIVE up the mountain from the Gatlinburg Parkway to the property takes less than 5 minutes! The start of Downtown Gatlinburg is less than 2 miles away and Pigeon Forge is about a 5 mile drive.
Unlike many mountain properties that feel as if they are "on top of each other", Cliffside Hideaway is situated on over a half acre! The cabin can accommodate 1 – 8 guests. GUESTS ARE REQUIRED TO TRUTHFULLY STATE THE EXACT NUMBER OF PERSONS THAT WILL BE STAYING AT THE PROPERTY WHEN MAKING A RESERVATION!

Hand-scraped, hardwood floors and Pine ceilings and walls throughout the cabin set the tone at this relaxing retreat. Guests can show off their culinary skills in a well-equipped kitchen with all stainless steel appliance including a French-door refrigerator (with filtered water on the door and an ice maker), microwave, smooth-top range, dishwasher, pantry and a "coffee alcove". The granite counter tops and hand-glazed cabins complete the ensemble and invite any gourmet to create to his or her heart’s content. Any ""grill master" will also appreciate the main level Gas Grill where he or she can prepare steaks, burgers, chicken and more! There is also a picnic table for outdoor eating that is located on the covered, rear porch that is right off the kitchen and indoor dining areas.

There are NO STAIRS, STEPS or OBSTACLES from the driveway into the main level of the cabin where guests will find an inviting great room with a Gas Fireplace (available only from late Fall through Winter), a deluxe kitchen, dining area, two comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms and rear covered porch.

Cliffside Hideaway is WHEELCHAIR FRIENDLY. The private, King Suite on the main level features wide doors and a bath with a 5' radius turn-around. This private bath also has a 4' x 4' shower with a wide shower door, a hand-held shower head, a portable shower seat and grab bars. The toilet is comfort-height and it too has a grab bar to assist those with special needs. The vanity is not ADA, but instead it is of a standard design. The other bedroom on the main level has a queen bed. The other bath has a tub/shower combo.

There are two powered-reclining love seats in the great room plus a manual-recliner.

The lower level features a Game Room where kids of all ages can enjoy a plethora of Board Games, Foosball or try their shills at the Shuffleboard Table! There is also a comfortable sectional sofa with two built-in recliners in the Game Room where guests can relax while watching a 65" 4-k TV or play one of more of over 120 video games on the Atari Flashback 8 Gold HD game system. The lower level also has a bathroom with a 4' x 4' shower, a laundry area (with full-size, washer & dryer) and a 24' x 12' bedroom with TWO Queen beds.

The pull of the mountains seem to invite guests to take in and enjoy the outdoors! Guests have two large, 20' x 10' covered rear porches where they can relax outside. One porch is located on the main level and the other on the lower level. They can also venture down to the patio level and enjoy the 3-4 person hot tub!

Guest can stay connected to the outside world with high-speed internet via a robust, wireless Gigabit router that supports multiple devices, and via cable TV through Charter Spectrum.

All guests at Cliffside Hideaway have FREE ACCESS to all three Chalet Village Owners Clubs, and FREE USE of their swimming pools, tennis courts, exercise equipment and other facilities during summer months!
NOTE: Clubhouses are ONLY OPEN DURING THE SUMMER. Clubhouses will open May 22, 2021. The North Clubhouse is less than a mile from the cabin, and it features THREE swimming pools (regular pool, kids pool, and a lap pool), and two tennis courts. North Clubhouse and pools are open Thursday - Monday (closed Tuesday and Wednesdays) during the summer, and tennis courts are open every day. The South Clubhouse is about a 3 mile drive and it is open Tuesday - Sunday (closed on Monday) during the summer. Clubhouse has one pool, exercise facilities and a game room.

The Alpine Clubhouse has a pool, and it is open Thursday - Monday (closed Tuesday and Wednesdays) during the summer. It is about a 5 mile drive from the cabin.

The location of Cliffside Hideaway also appeals to those that like to ski or snowboard. It provides access in winter to nearby Ski Mountain, and the slopes of Ober Gatlinburg (about a 7 minute drive).

The original Cliffside Hideaway (Happy Bear Chalet) was completely destroyed in the Gatlinburg wildfires in late 2016. The NEW Cliffside Hideaway (Happy Bear Chalet) was "rebuilt" two years later, and guests have returned to enjoy this wonderful property! Thankfully, numerous other cabins have been rebuilt too or are in the process of rebuilding!

Cliffside Hideaway is a great cabin! Very clean, the best stocked kitchen I’ve ever seen in a rental cabin. My family loved the games and the amenities. The view of wildlife was good—a bear Cub,chiipmunks, squirrels all wonderful for young boys. The drive is not for the faint of heart and the view of the many cabins close by were the only drawbacks. Hearthside has always been wonderful to work with!

Everything was great! The perfect space for our family. One recommendation for ADA would be handicap bars on toilet upstairs. The bars on wall were too high.

Everything was perfect from the minute we stepped into the beautiful cabin to our overall experience in Gatlinburg. The cabin was the right size, had all the bells and whistles we needed and was extremely clean. Our family felt like home there! It was the best experience eve.
