Gatlinburg Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8

If you are looking for something truly magical, and are looking for a great view of the Appalachians,and you may be a J.R.R. Tolkien or a C.S. Lewis fan. Buck Horn is the Place for you and your family. Buck Horn,is the nick name the house was given by the locals. Buck Horn was one of the first homes built before the opening of the National Park and the 11 acres it sits on was chosen for its commanding view of Mount LeConte (the 3rd tallest mountain in the Appalachians by only 16 feet, elevation 6593 feet) and the mountain range that leads to the famous New Found Gap. There is so much history that goes with this place, it's hard to put in a few short paragraphs. So, when you would like more detail's on Buck Horn, please contact me at my email or my cell to chat about all her wonders.

Wow, where do I begin? The house was designed and built by Bruce McCarty in the late 40's, and completed in 1952. The house is of Frank Loyd Wright inspiration, as this was Bruce's influence while he attended Princeton and through out his career. The house began as a family retreat for all seasons. The site for the home was picked just after Tennessee was awarded the Site for the entrance into the Great Smoky Mountains.

Bruce wanted it to be special where the family could gather for all types of family events, and this being Bruce's first house he designed and built he was looking for just the right spot and boy did he find it. I consider it his master piece and we are talking about the fellow who designed the World's Fair in Knoxville (see wikipedia Bruce McCarty) I could be a little partial. The local newspaper wrote an article about Buck Horn upon it's completion in 1952 claiming such revolutions as complete with washer and dryer, sleeps 14, hot water heater, and full kitchen and bath. The construction is unique in that the whole lower floor is constructed of giant flag stones,polished wood inner wall's and ceiling's, and of 18 inches of solid granite that was recovered from the foot of Mount Le Cont (not one piece of sheet rock in the house).

The den area was designed to give you the feeling you are sitting under a shade tree situated as to have a picturesque view of Mount LeConte. With its massive fire place,polished hard wood ceilings, built in viewing couch, large flag stone floors that continue through the 18 foot soaring windows out onto the veranda over looking mighty Mount LeConte, you have the feeling of being outside, as this was the intent.The guest who have stayed at Buck Horn comment on how they loose sense of time and find it hard to leave ,even with it being so much to do in the local and surrounding area.The view from the den is all inspiring no matter what the season it could be the fall with the changing of the leaves as you watch the colors change as they rise up the face of LeConte or when it snows and you are nestled by a roaring fire and you seem to be out side in it as it flutters on to the veranda ,or the spring when the bloom begins and the colors abound every where you look.If you have read the Lord of the Rings it's like your own private Rivendell,and when the Fire flies are in action you can almost hear the elf's singing. .

Also, on the lower level, there is a spacious fully equipped kitchen, half bath, laundry room, and a cozy home theater with 62' Pioneer Elite Plasma Monitor with Yamaha and Harmon Cardin surround system. The seating in the theater is a custom wrap around couch that is stuffed with the equivalent of 20 down blankets(too comfy). The upper floor is a cantilevering masterpiece constructed of 12' clear pine polished walls,vaulted ceilings, with floors that look as if they are from an old Chris Craft Boat.

Two of the three bed rooms have private balconies that seem to float magically a great place to start your morning with a cup of coffee or a place to catch up on that book you have been dying to read, and they are connected by a masterful cat walk that over looks the valley leading up to Mount LeConte. Just like the lower level, there are windows galore all with custom brass rolling screens. The upper level wraps up with a full bath, a third bedroom with an amazing view and plenty of closet space.

I would love to have you come and enjoy the wonders of Buck Horn and her great history. Buck Horn is designed to be used year round.

Wonderful Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I can only say that it was the most beautiful home we have ever stayed in. We took our family over Christmas, 2013. We brought our tree and turkey and it felt like home. If you are coming to Gatlinburg TN, it is the most recommended place to stay. You will feel like you are in a treehouse. The views are absolutely beautiful. We had snow Christmas Eve, that made it even more special. You will not need to bring anything but your clothes, the house has everything you will need. In cooking and sleeping. It is so conveniently located to town. We are coming back next year. Richard, the owner, will help you with anything you need to know, and provide any of your needs. He is a wonderful person, and we are so happy to have met him and had the chance to enjoy this paradise of a home. The views are everything you could imagine. Everything he tells you in the description is so true and more. Thank you Richard!

WOW Unique Chalet

  • 5 of 5
Richard,
When we arrived and entered we were ....Speechless!!! What can we say except your home is SO unique and wonderful!!!!
Windows open, fans going, lights on, everything was so clean!!! You made us feel so welcome and warm.
All the windows, stone , and wood make this home so very special. It makes you feel like you are in a different world, waiting for fairies and elfs to come out at dusk. Nature is all around no matter what room you are in. We watched so many movies and relaxed in the media room. Bedrooms upstairs are so cozy and nice. Your home made our vacation very special.
The chalet is exactly like your pics but even better!! We will definitely be back and tell our friends about your unique home. If only I could get stuck for a month here!!!!
Thanks for sharing it with us!

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5
The driveway to reach the house is extremely steep and not paved (gravel drive). When we arrived there was still wet laundry in the washer and damp towels in the dryer (with no detergent or softener). We purchased detergent/softener and redid the towels since only 8 were clean/availabla but 10 people were expected. The patio looked as if it has not been swept or cleaned in awhile. We swept debris into a corner and wiped down table/chairs. There was bag worms crawling across the stone entryway and in the downstairs bathroom. Cobwebs all over the wooden loft above the dining room table. Dishes still in the dishwasher (which we didn't know so we purchased plastic ware because we thought there would not be enough silverware). Hot water heater ran out of hot water in just a few minutes. It was decided we would wash dishes by hand due to the hot water issue. We had to buy our own dish detergent. There are no curtains in any of the rooms so sleeping later than sunrise was nearly impossible. We were left only the barest of toilet paper and trash bags even though a family of 10 was expected for four nights/five days. There is no air conditioning and the fans provided are covered in dust/dirt. I called the local contact to ask about toilet paper and trash bags and was told that just a starter kit of toilet paper and trash bags are provided. That if we needed more we would have to supply ourselves. There was maybe 4 or five squares of toilet paper on the rolls when we arrived. So they had to be replaced almost immediately. I also told the local contact that the trash outside was full/overflowing (this was Saturday). I was assured that someone would come to collect it. Never happened. A dog (which woke us up) had gotten into it and it was everywhere. We cleaned it up. It rained the whole weekend so we were inside the whole time. There were lots of movies and games provided at the house which made the stay easier. I spoke with the owner and he was upset and apologized. He said he would refund us the cleaning fee. We're still waiting on the refund.

Took some warming up too!

  • 3 of 5
My family and I decided to rent Buck Horn for 3 nights, I am a photographer and I thought that we would have a great view of Mt. Leconte but we only could see it through the tree's barely and just the tip of the mountain, could be a better view in the winter I am sure. Our first night there was to say the least uncomfortable due to it was very warm and there is no A/C the house being made of stone did cool off pretty good in the lower area's of the home at night.( I would recommend the home for spring, fall and winter) or making sure all windows are open upon arrival of guest in the summer. The home is very unique, secluded(however you can hear traffic from the HWY) I would not recommend more than 6 to rent the place that is all the beds the home offers, the rest are couches and not sleeper couches either. You will get the nature feel with this home. Plenty of creep crawlers and wild life we had a bear get in the ordinary trash can provided to place our trash. We warmed up to the place about the time we had to leave, and we are chalking our stay up to you only live once so make the best of all situations. We enjoyed our stay together due to my daughter has been sick and we needed the break and time spent with family means more than anything, but I can say that we would not rent the home again, unless it was just my husband and I.

The Buck Horn experience

  • 5 of 5
Words cannot describe this beautiful oasis. Buck Horn gives you the feeling of a beach home in the wilderness and looks like one of those unique homes featured on HGTV. Myself and a friend stayed here for three nights Memorial weekend and we were both sad to leave so soon, as we both agreed that we could live here. The location is perfectly nestled up a steep gravel hill where you’ll feel inaccessible except for the occasional presence of a bird, butterfly, lizard (don’t be scared ;-) or another one of God’s amazing little creatures. The home is perfectly located near anything you want to see or do near Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. The fireplace and grill both came in perfect use to create yummy steaks and to wind down for the evening. If you are a movie buff or want to pick up a book and immerse your mind in the past, present or future Buck Horn provides plenty of media entertainment. The picturesque views outside the windows make you feel as if you are dreaming. We were very grateful to have the opportunity to stay here within a few days’ notice and Richard could not have been a more attentive host. He provided directions, things to do in the area and a quick follow-up to my phone calls or text messages leading up to our stay. If you are considering a visit to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge I would not consider any other place and this will always be an amazing home away from home….till next time……. Deana

Absolutely Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5
So when I saw this property online, I thought this is to good to be true.. Turns out it is true and its even better than I imagined! It was like I stepped into a time machine and went back to the 50's with new age technology. The view of Mount LeConte was breath-taking. The whole back of the house was windows so, I got to see it everywhere I went. The location was very private but only a couple miles from the grocery and downtown Gatlinburg. We saw all the sites of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, and got to come back to our own private chalet. My girlfriend and I went hiking on the property, which seemed never-ending. Its hard to put all of it into words, but we had an amazing time and hope to come back every year!
