This is just a great place to stay, period. It's about a mile from the Parkway, but feels like it is miles from all the hustle and bustle. The rooms are big, the beds are more comfortable than ours at home and the river just off the back deck is the perfect extra. The kitchen was as well equipped as any we have seen.
The chalet is very tastefully decorated in an African Safari theme throughout, something my wife had to point out to me.
We come to Pigeon Forge every year or two in December and plan to stay here from now on if we can get it. My wife has even talked about coming up in the spring or summer to better enjoy the river off the back deck.
The owner, was very responsive to me when I had several questions before renting and provided timely useful information after the deal was done.
All in all, a very pleasant experience that we hope to repeat in the future.
