Overview

Gatlinburg Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

I fell in love with the Smoky Mountains since the first time I set eyes on them. Vered and I came down to Gatlinburg for some R&R and next thing you know we bought a chalet to eventually retire in. We fixed it to our liking and now family, friends and YOU are able to enjoy relaxing and a great adventure…hence the name “Secondhand Lions” (a movie we have features in our video library)! Conveniently located just a few short minutes to downtown Gatlinburg, top of Ski Mountain (Ober Gatlinburg), quiet walkways and, of course, the Great Smoky Mountain park entrance where the adventure really begins.

“Secondhand Lions” …Tranquil setting with all the comforts of home! The great room is decorated in Native American art that I collected over the years. We displayed it for all to enjoy. The bedrooms are equipped with a pair of Jacuzzi Hydro Message Tubs for that deep relaxation.

Surrounded by trees and wildlife make this a very relaxing and comfortable stay. Please take a photo of your stay and send me. I’ll display the best photo of the month and choose the best photo of the year to give a free night too.

Special weekly rates and off-season rates…call or email to find out. Enjoy in season Owners Club facilities (choice of 3 on the mountain). If you are a ski fanatic let us know and we’ll put a package together for you during the ski season.

Thank you for choosing our “great mountain getaway”!

About Dave Lyons

Vered and I are two souls that love the outdoors. We climb mountains and hike all over the nation and internationally. We have climbed Mt. Rainier, Mt. Washington and Mesada in Israel. We're always looking for an adventure!

Dave Lyons purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Dave Lyons chose Gatlinburg

We were in Gatlinburg just passively looking at properties. We came across the one here at 991 Stans Road and fell in love with the potential. We refurbished it but still have big plans...for instance a waterfall with hot tub on the edge near the big windows. We want this to be our oasis because we love the area...it's like living a vacation!

What makes this chalet unique

'Secondhand Lions' is uniquely positioned. It is close to just about everything...not far up the mountain....just right! It's cozy but very spacious...very relaxing while viewing nature out of all those windows.

Great private chalet just 5 minutes from Downtown!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend staying in this chalet. It is exactly what we needed to get away and relax! The chalet is very private, as there is only one chalet neighboring it; however, a fence provides total privacy. It is literally only 5 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg! The driveway, which a previous review said was terrible to get up, was not nearly as bad as we were thinking based on this review. We had NO TROUBLE getting up the driveway. Compared to most driveways in Gatlinburg, this one was a piece of cake - it's short with a minor incline. There are two different ways to get to the chalet, and if you follow the OWNER'S DIRECTIONS, the driveway is easy to get up. If you come from the other direction, it makes it a little difficult, as it is a very sharp angle to turn.

The chalet itself was great, as it was very spacious, and there were tons of amenities provided - washer/dryer, 2 jacuzzis, flat screen Vizio tv (with HDMI capability to hook up your laptop), DVD player, wireless internet, Wii video game console, fireplace, and any kitchen supplies you would need! Chalet would be perfect for a couple's getaway or with a group of friends! Owner was very easy to get a hold of, as we had to call him once to ask a question. He answered his phone immediately, and even called later in the trip to make sure that the chalet was clean and that we had everything we needed.

We will definitely be recommending this chalet to our family and friends, and we will definitely be staying here again in the future!!

Most Wonderful stay at this Chalet!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this location when it was with Gatlinburg Cabins Online. Dave Lyons has taken this property and done the most wonderful upgrades and really made the place 150% better. We so enjoyed our stay here that we didn't want to leave and go home. Christmas in the Smokies is the best thing on Earth and the stay we had here was just wonderful. We are a family of 5 and fit just fine in this chalet. The kitchen is wonderful and we cooked Christmas Dinner right there. The location is EXCELLENT!!!! This Chalet is literally minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. We HIGHLY recommend this Chalet to any family and HIGHLY recommend this area to anyone. I can't say enough good things about this property and the owners.

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

So loved this chalet on ski mountain. Within less than five minutes you can be in downtown Gatlinburg, at Over Gatlinburg or the entrance to the National Parks.

The chalet was beautifully decorated and had plenty of room. The two master suites each with their own jacuzzi was perfect for a girl's week because neither of us had to sacrifice any amenities. Having a full kitchen was great because I felt bad a few days so we just cooked and stayed in. Being stuck inside was no problem

with having cable TV and a fireplace. The chalet owner provided plenty of dry wood.

Not only was the chalet wonderful but the owner was great to work with! We came in a day early and loved it so much that we stayed an extra three days. When I got sick and needed to stay an extra day Dave was very accommodating.

I have been staying in Gatlinburg since I was a child and this was one of the best vacations I've ever had!

It was also great to be able to bring my well behaved standard poodle with me since I never travel without him.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words! We feel everyone's experience in the mountains should be special and accommodating. Every year we try to do something new to the place and it feels good to know that it is appreciated.

We loved Secondhand Lyons!!

  • 5 of 5

Before arrival, cabin owner communicated with me often and was very easy to do business with. He gave us all the information we would need for our stay (i.e. directions, points of interest, access information for cabin, etc.). Upon arrival, cabin was clean, neat, cozy, and comfortable. Secondhand Lyons contained all household items we would need for our stay including kitchen necessities, towels, and extra linens. Although we didn't spend much time outside due to rain, there was a nice fire ring outside for our use and there was plenty of wood for when we lit the fireplace up inside. If I could change anything, it would be that we could've known when the sanitation department came so that we wouldn't leave our kitchen garbage... beds were comfortable, water was hot and pressure was good. It was close enough to the places we wanted to see and just far enough from town as to not be bombarded with traffic and noise. We can't wait for our next trip up there and to stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words.! We try very hard to make it comfortable for everyone. Thanks for letting me know about the garbage. I should state in the information I send to guests before they arrive that there is a garbage drop off area before they come up Stans Road for household trash. Thanks again and you are welcome back anytime.

Just stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We rent multiple VRBO's each year. We come to GBurg annually. We have never stayed in the same rental twice. (I mean, really there are like a 1000 places to rent!) I'm am 100% sure that we will be returning to this chalet! The pictures do not even come close to conveying how great it is. Where to begin? It is only five minutes from town. It is visible from Ski Mtn road - which is super busy, but once you go inside, it feels like you are million miles away from anyone! It was Labor Day weekend (note to self - don't do that again) and they say that 1/3 of the US population live within a days drive of the Smoky's - I'm pretty sure that all of those people were in Gburg this weekend. We braved the crowds, stood in long lines, got stuck in traffic, hiked on trails with 100's of other people but as soon as we walked in the chalet all of that was forgotten! The museum quality artwork is tastefully done. The BRAND NEW shower is fantastic! There are flat screens in every room. The WI-FI is just as fast as it is at home. The flower baskets are beautiful. The rental is super clean. The pools are perfect! The driveway is really not that bad compared to most in the area. (We parked a full sized F150 and a Subaru in the driveway.) I only have one suggestion - Dave, you need to get a guest book! We love reading other people's entries and adding our own!

Property is located just off Ski Mountain Road. When you turn left onto Stans Road it's the first driveway on the right. Just a few short minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and to the top of the mountain at Ober Gatlinburg just up Ski Mountain Road.
