Gatlinburg Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom loft, 1 built-in queen bed on main level, 1 bathroom

We have it all – a peaceful retreat and the excitement of all that the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area has to offer – it’s your choice! Our “Beary Cozy” escape in High Chalet condominiums offer a quiet secluded mountain setting that is only a 10 minute drive from downtown where all the action is, yet after a long day of sightseeing in town, shopping at the Tanger Outlets, visiting Ripley’s Acquarium, hiking at Smoky Mountain National Park, and racing down the slides of Dolly’s Splash Mountain, you will find comfort in what awaits you . . .the view from the balcony can only be described as 'majestic'. You are amongst the clouds, at the highest point of Ski Mountain.

The complex offers all the free firewood you can burn, free WiFi Internet, cable TV, an outdoor pool, 2 giant hot tubs and a sauna room. The coin-op laundry room is just down the hall on the 2nd floor. Just bring your groceries and enjoy the clean air, the birdwatching, and the inspiring view of the mountains.

What To Do: In the winter, Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort Park offers snow skiing (8 slopes/all levels), tubing and snowboarding. In the summer, it recreates itself into an indoor/outdoor amusement park that includes mini golf, ice skating, an Alpine slide and much more. And it is just a 5 minute drive from your door.

Pigeon Forge, home of Dollywood theme park and Splash Mountain, as well as a variety of restaurants and shopping areas, Tanger Outlet, a new movie theater, comedy shows, theaters, art galleries, and outdoor activities such as horseback riding, tubing and white water rafting is just a short drive away from Gatlinburg.

No wonder Gatlinburg is #2 Destination for Honeymooners!

About Diana and John Maniscalco

We are Floridians, who were looking for a getaway that allowed us to bring the family, and come as a couple to relax in the mountains. We're outdoorsy people, so we love bicycling through Cades Cove, hiking the Smokies, whitewater rafting in the Pigeon River and so many more family-fun activities. We have to ensure that there's enough to do for a 13, 19, and 26 year old!

Diana and John Maniscalco purchased this condo in 2004

Why Diana and John Maniscalco chose Gatlinburg

We're at the very top of the mountain, so we don't get much traffic, and after the bustle of downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, it's nice to be surrounded by peace and quiet. In the winter, we come up to ski - it's a small resort, so we don't get huge crowds, prices are good, and allows for all ski levels, within our family.

What makes this condo unique

Mountain view from our living room and bedroom windows, property is green, with access to a pool, 2 jacuzzis, a sauna, and a game room.

Great Condo!!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I chose this condo for a long weekend trip. Here are some helpful tips for those considering this room. This lot has 5 or so buildings and we stayed in number 2. It doesn't have the view from the photo included above. The view is nice but not as great as some of the other buildings on the lot. But the place was quiet and at the top of the mountain, so take heed, you will be driving quite a bit up! We did not participate in any of the amenities that High Chalet offered (like the pool and sauna), but everything in the room was great! It was clean and spacious. The main bed is in the loft and there is a day bed (big enough for 2) downstairs that I think was more comfortable. The kitchen was nicely furnished and the living room area was quaint. There was a fire place but we did not use it, so I can't attest to that. The balcony was quite small, and like I said our room didn't have the best view that High Chalet had to offer but you could still see some beautiful mountains around the buildings. The price was the biggest draw, we went in what is considered peak weekend in October and paid half of what we would have paid per night for a cabin. Sometimes you wonder for a cheap price if you are getting a cheap room, but not in this case! Overall I would definitely recommend this condo to others. We really enjoyed our stay and its a great alternative over a cabin in the woods. The location was also great, it was maybe a 10 minute drive down the mountain to everything downtown Gatlinburg had to offer. We loved that it was so close.

Great Place at an Awesome Price!

  • 5 of 5
First off I just want to say that the owners of this property are very nice and understanding people. I initially booked this property for 7 nights, but I had a personal problem arise, and I thought I was going to have to cancel my reservation. I emailed them and they worked with me and allowed me to just adjust the length and dates of my reservation instead of cancelling. My husband and I stayed comfortably at this 3rd floor condo for 4 nights with a 14 year old and a 2 year old. It is at the very end of the road at the top of the mountain. There are amazing views during the drive up to the property. There are also beautiful views from the balcony of the condo, but they are somewhat obstructed by the other buildings on the property. It still does not take away from the beautiful early morning views. The condo was clean and well kept, with comfortable furnishings. There were plenty of dishes and cookware available for use. I would recommend going to Walmart and buying hygiene products and cleaning supplies such as disinfectant wipes and dishsoap as these are not provided. (These weren't listed in the amenities list anyway, just giving a friendly reminder.) The only thing listed on the amentities list that wasn't available was a charcoal grill. There were a few propane grills on the complex, but no charcoal grills. Overall, we really enjoyed staying at this property. It was much more spacious than a hotel room or suite, and it had a full functional kitchen. This saved us money by being able to cook some on our trip. On the days that it rained while we were there, we were more than happy and comfortable staying in the condo and relaxing. I would definitely book this property again for a future vacation with one change, I would book it for at least twice as long! Great place!

GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Beary Cozy. The location was great and the views were awesome. We seen 7 bears while we was in the area! The pool and the hot tubes were very nice and relaxing. The owners John & Diana were very nice and answered any questions we had. Our condo was real nice and we had great views from our windows and porch. We took our bikes and rode them at Cades Cove. Wednesday & Saturday's is the best time to ride because they don't let cars in the park until 10am. We like to be active so we also walked a lot of trails. A great place to eat is Carvers which is about 30 minutes away. We would recommend this place to any one! MAKE SURE YOU GET DIRECTIONS TO THE CONDO BEFORE YOU GO!
GREAT PLACE HAD A GREAT TIME!

Has Potential, but not very clean

  • 3 of 5
We thought that this condo was quite reasonable for the price. It would be tight for a family of four, but suitable in size/layout. The condo complex is indeed on very top of the mountain, has incredible views from the poolside, friendly residents, and very well kept grounds. It really does have a lot of potential.

However, I was quite disappointed in the cleanliness of this cabin: there was dried up food in the silverware drawer, gunk in the medicine cabinet and in the drawer under the main floor bed, the coffeepot had not even been wiped down, obvious food splats on the wall, the bathroom faucet didn’t look like it had been wiped, a half of an old cookie and mounds of dirt/dust were under the chair, and there were a lot of hairs everywhere- even in the refrigerator. We were very short on dishes until we realized that most of them were left clean in the dishwasher from the previous renters. I am all about simple quarters, but they must be clean!!!

If this does not deter you, here are some things I wish I would have known so that I could have packed differently:

1) Bring EVERYTHING. We figured we’d save on food and buy groceries for breakfast. When we arrived for a 4 day stay, there was only 1 roll of toilet paper, a couple of paper towels left on a roll, no napkins, coffee filters, or trash bags, and no grocery store in the vicinity other than the Walgreens on the Gatlinburg main drag (where a box of cereal cost $6, so you can imagine how much it cost to buy all provisions). You will pass grocery stores in Sevierville, so stop while you can! Bring a couple of dishrags and kitchen towels as there are only one of each of these. There are four bath towels, though.

2) There is a trolley that goes through town that you can ride for 50 cents per rider. It would have been very convenient to just park where we were staying and hop on to the trolley. However, since downtown Gatlinburg is so busy, it was nice to get away up the mountain to the quiet. You can park in town for $5 a day, so it isn’t really that bad.

3) The condo is on the third floor, so not handicap accessible.

4) It’s faster to get to the condo if you don’t drive through the town of Gatlinburg. If you take the Gatlinburg Bypass to the park right after getting through Pigeon Forge, you will still have the option to access Gatlinburg via the other direction at the other side of the Bypass. When you are coming into town from that side, light #10 is the very first light in town.

Owner's Response: We vacation in our condo a few times a year and care for it lovingly, as a second home. We've never received negative feedback until now and we wanted to honor our guests' comments. We addressed these by contracting a management company that will handle all future cleanings/repairs/maintenance issues. In addition, we contacted the next guest after receiving this review, and they were very pleased with the condo's cleanliness and readiness for their arrival. They promised to post their excellent review!

Incredible place in The Smoky Mountains

  • 5 of 5
Even thought we checked before going to Gatlinburg, we didn't realize that that it will be an incredible place. Traveling through Pigeon Forge the great Mountain is in front and we were going into that, different kind of commerce for a small town and a lot of hotels, motels, cabins, etc; why are there all of this? was my question. We left Pigeon Forge and went to Gatlinburg following the river in the mountain, it was fascinating. We enter in Gatlinburg and it was amazing, a town in the mountain with stores side to side, attractions, restaurants, hotels, motels, parking and a multitude going and back on Friday afternoon, curios. We crossed this beautiful town tried to find our place, 1380 Skiview Drive and our Smart telephones were showing different places, the mistake was just a "y", I was looking for Skyview Drive and it was in the middle of the Mountain. Fortunately my phone was out of range and we stopped at Sugarlands Visitor Center, they helped and gave us a map for free. This map was our salvation and guide during the weekend, and it showed the place to close. We started to climb the mountain and going and going up to the haven. And when we arrived to the place it was like enter in another world, a beautiful place close to the haven. Our nest was perfect and we felt like it was our dream being real. A very nice place, clean, well maintained, close to every thing, quiet, warm; with all necessary for a wonderful vacation. We enjoyed hardly staying at this property and recommend this to every body who like the mountains in summer as in winter or any season.
Thank you Diana and John for let us to enjoy your amazing place, we are thinking to go back for new year or winter time.
