Houses for rent in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, areas

I will be traveling with my spouse, my parents, and our 2 children (12 and 16) the first week of June 2014. I have been thoroughly researching homes on VRBO as I do for all of our vacations. However, I need help deciding which is the best location for our needs (i.e. Arts & Crafts community, Chalet Village, etc). We would love to see a bear and other wildlife, but we also plan on doing Dollywood, water park, etc. Please give feedback!

Well, what are your needs?

We almost always stay in the Chalet Village area and it is great! Great views of Mt. LeConte and convenient to the Park entrance or any part of Gatlinburg..

Actually it is quite common to see bears in the Chalet Village areas. It borders the National Park and bears can be seen often foraging for food.

We've found that the Wears Valley area or Townsend is the best and most convenient way to enter into the Cades Cove loop. This is also the prettiest and less tourestey area, yet close enough to all the "must go and see" attractions.

And as far as seeing bears or other wildlife, this is a good spot to spot bears from your cabin deck. (it's not all that uncommon, for bears to come find your dcabin.

Wendy, your post will probably get removed for soliciting. I see you are new to the forums. Advertising is not allowed.

Thank you all for your help! I think I'm going to go with a place in Pigeon Forge that I found on VRBO.com that seems to meet our needs well.
