About Gigi Grein

My husband Yvon and I are both originally from Quebec, Canada. His roots are Native Indian and his primary language is French and he speaks English with a very charming accent. I'm an Army Brat born in Fort Hood, Texas with European roots and speak fluent English, French and German. We moved to Florida to escape the harsh Canadian winters but are finding the extreme summer heat unbearable.

Gigi Grein purchased this condo in 2017

Why Gigi Grein chose Chalet Village

In early 2016 we took a self-planned vacation to High Chalet - this exact complex - and we fell in love with the area. We can't retire yet - but we plan to settle down in the Great Smoky Mountains soon - and this is our first step into paradise. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

This hideaway in the mountains is very special - surrounded by majestic mountains and fluffy clouds - wildlife all around. You can hike right from your front door or just to the nearby picnic tables and enjoy the fresh air and nature at its best.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A very pleasant and easy stay. I was slightly concerned because the property changed ownership before our trip, but the new owners were just as friendly and communicative. Everything went off without a hitch and we had a great visit.

Cozy Bear

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Gigi’s Cozy Bear condo! The road is very windy getting up to the condos, but there are lovely views of the mountains along the way. The unit was charming and stocked with all essentials. Definitely recommend!

Wonderful little condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful little condo unit! Had everything we needed for a long weekend getaway.

I've stayed in many of VRBO rentals, and this one was top of the list in convenience, and cleanliness!!!

This condo unit is in building 1 of High Chalet Condos, not the best view from the condo but nice enough. Dont let that detour you!

The owner was very easy to work with and very accommodating!!!

Thank you Miss GIGI!!!!!
