Terrace Gardens and the folks behind it have one of the nicest homes/chalets we have ever experienced, especially for our group of 25. Everything you see is what you get, and we enjoyed the unique architecture, incredibly large 2 acre property (the children played the entire day in the forest) offset from the roads. We're frequent vacationers in Gatlinburg, and most chalets are right on the road with no parking or place for children to play. Not at Terrace Gardens. The location was super convenient to Gatlinburg and the ski slopes, and working with Eric to book the house was so easy and accommodating. We're definitely going to be booking our yearly vacation here from now on. They are constantly improving the home and the handicap accessible bathroom was perfect for the elders of our group.
Another thing that can't be described is how incredible the views are here, you can see Mt LeConte (the highest mountain the Appalachain range) right from the loft and main terrace. The maintenance folks are also incredibly sweet and accommodating for what turned out to be a leak that we caused. All the beds are comfortable and fitted with clean sheets. Towels are also in abundance and nearly everything you need (except food!) is ready for you. They even have two refridgerators for massive groups, trust me - when you have 25 people you fill up the freezer VERY fast.
We also had a tight budget and Eric was willing to work with us on fitting within our budget, the price per night works out to be such a good deal when you've got beds, bathrooms for such a large group. Just ask them and they'll do their best to help you out and make you a repeat customer. They even gave us a coupon for our children to eat free at a restaurant called The River Road Pancake House when we booked.
Thanks again Terrace Gardens! See you next year.
There's so much to love about this home. This is our second time staying at Terrace Gardens, but our first time posting a review.
For families on a budget (and who of us isn't?) Terrace Gardens really came through. All 28 members of our family filled out literally every nook and cranny of the house and we still loved having all the extra space. Bunk bed rooms for the children were such a big hit with the kids. For meals, we loved being able to sit together with our big group, both inside and outside. The extra tables and chairs provided at the home made for nice impromptu lunches on the terrace and under the front port/entryway.
There are A LOT of homes in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area, but it really is so nice to stay in a home cared for so lovingly by its owners. No, it's not the newest home, but it has so much character and is on a really huge plot of land that feels like your own private mountain. Everyone can roam the property instead of cramming next to a neighbor. The couple that manages the home are sweet, caring and helpful in many ways too.
The location is high atop the mountain which gives it a wonderful view of the Appalachian mountains, but it's also a VERY quick and easy drive into downtown Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and even easier to get into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our family squeezed in shopping, swimming (at the nearby clubhouses which are a real treat and free access with the pass in the home). A few of the lazier adults enjoyed the hot tub and pool too. Oh, and since so many of us were traveling in from out of town (Kentucky, Florida and Ohio) we loved having plenty of space to park all our families' cars in the huge driveway.
There have been lots of nice improvements since our last stay and though we can't remember exactly all the changes, the ones we could immediately tell were very welcome. Bigger, nicer beds, and it looks like even a couple new bathrooms and bedrooms! Another nice touch are the huge dual refrigerators, TVs in almost every room, and it looks like a new layout for parts of the house. For huge, hungry groups like ours the dual refrigerators came in very handy and the nice new appliances (gas stove is key) in the expansive kitchen made for easy meal preparations. It also accommodated the hungry kids all around the breakfast bar.
Okay, enough rambling. It's all to say that we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in our budget. We'll absolutely be back next year!
Enjoyed the facilities and hot tub. Great meeting space for our group to discuss business without the formal attire. Enjoyed the chance to hike and see the mountains and visit the artists in the area. I will recommend the property to others.
We had a great time, however the accommodations could have been much better. The house is in need of major updates, the bedding was outdated and old. The carpet needs replaced. There were lots of bugs and the basement bathroom shower was really gross. We'll be returning to Gatlinburg but will be looking for a different cabin to rent.
Great house for a large family. Most of the bedrooms are small with just bunkbeds, but perfect if there are lots of singles or kids. The owner was fantastic to work with and very flexible with our schedules. The game room consists of a pool table and a small tv. I would definitely recommend this property to a large group that is looking for a relaxing weekend. Nothing fancy, but a great time!
During a recent trip to Gatlinburg, TN, my family along with 6 other small groups had the opportunity to stay at this wonderful chalet. Our intent for the trip was simple; to enjoy the slopes of Ober Gatlinburg for some skiing and snowboarding excitement and introduce many of our friends to this amazing passtime.
Considering that we were only 1.5 miles away from the resort, the convenience factor was barr none! It was less than a 5 minute drive to the top of the slopes and close enough to head back to the chalet for meal breaks and intermissions.
With a group of 26 (Adults being outnumbered by our kids), we still had 4 bedrooms to spare!
The Chalet was great. There was plenty of space for everyone to congregate together, and at 6,500 sq ft, it was large enough to get away from each other if we had to! Their were plenty of towels, dishes and silverware to accommodate our group and the condition of the Chalet upon arrival was great.
There were a few minor setbacks that we did experience, as with any trip, but it didn't hinder our ability to have a great time. Wifi didn't work during our stay, but if it had, the majority of our group would have been working. So, we focused instead on enjoying our time with each other. When I informed the owner after our stay, he kindly provided compensation for the inconvenience.
The master bedroom located in the loft had a BEAUTIFUL stone-faced gas burning fireplace and was very roomy. However, privacy was a bit restricted as it was only partially enclosed. The side with the fireplace was above and in front of the main living room, with no wall. It was separated by room dividers, but any noise coming from downstairs could be easily heard in the room and vice versa.
The kids absolutely LOVED the place. There were plenty of rooms with bunks for them to choose. But the bunk rooms were pretty tight quarters. However, most of the kids spent very little time in their rooms, and instead opted to spend their time in the snow.
Would we stay at this Chalet again? Absolutely! The combination of great people and a great location made for a wonderful time. The owner was amazingly easy to work with and very accommodating and was even willing to work with us on a restricted budget.
If you're looking for plenty of space for a large group close to the slopes, give this place a try!
