MTN. CHALET WITH A TRANQUIL SETTING - CLOSE TO EVERYTHING!

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!!

Just stay here!

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!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great experience in our place! As I've stated in our bio, we want everyone to enjoy our place. We are constantly trying to update it. I'm glad you mentioned how clean it was. We've had some problems with our cleaning service and their effort sometimes. It is real important that guest notify us about this. Keeps people on their toes! You're welcome back anytime and hopefully it will be even a better experience.

Cabin was nice, but not what we expected.

  • 3 of 5
There are many new updates, but there needs to be more renovations to be a 5 star cabin. ESPECIALLY the showers. The cabin has very little as far as scenery views. It sits on a steep side of a mountain with no rear views at all. Front views are ok, except cabin is on the corner of Stans Road and one of the main roads, so you could hear every car or motorcycle go down the street at night. The driveway is so steep and full of moss (due to the dampness of the forest), that it is somewhat difficult to get up and my Chevy Equinox dragged at the bottom of the driveway. The bottom floor of the cabin has a nicer, updated kitchen, living room with large flat screen TV with cable and the works, the whole cabin is nicely decorated throughout, and there is one bedroom on the main floor with jacuzzi tub and full bath. The 2nd bedroom takes up the entire upstairs. It also has a jacuzzi tub and full bath. The mattress in the first floor bedroom is very comfortable, but the mattress in the 2nd bedroom upstairs needs to be replaced. It is an older broken down mattress with a thick memory foam cover on the top of it. It would be very comfortable with a new mattress under it. The showers in both bathrooms are VERY small. I mean so small that you cannot bend over to pick up the soap without the door coming open and the shower head is very low. It was also difficult for my wife to shave her legs in it. We are not obese people either.

Nice cabin if you are not staying there for a picture perfect scenic view. Great price! Excellent customer service from Dave. We would definitely stay again if the mattress and showers were updated. Also the TVs in the bedrooms are older tube type TVs and are only about 15 inches big. It would be nice if they were updated too.

We did see a bear and coyote while we were there. That was pretty cool!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback i always welcome it to make improvements so each stay will be enjoyable. We don't really claim to be a 5 star cabin but we are making the best strides possible to achieve a stature close to that. Improvements are constant since we bought the place a year and a half ago and we have made significant improvements. Kitchen update, living area, rooms etc. On our list this year is to remodel the bathrooms one at a time. Our jacuzzi tubs are very large, spacious and quite relaxing as we were told from numerous guests. We are refurbishing the way we like because hopefully in the near future we will live in our chalet. It takes time and money to get things the way we like them and it seems a lot of time and money has been fixing and replacing broken items due to certain guest stays but that's to be expected. We can't please everyone but we do please the majority and we hope everyone enjoys their stay at our place in the Smokeys! Again, thank you very much for your comments we are acting on the improvements.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
Lovely place with all you need. Owner is easy to reach. Close to Downtown but still secluded for that "time off" we all need.

Perfect place for a small family or 2 couples since each bedroom has its own bathroom.

I will definitely stay here again!!!
