About Jim and Cathy Janszen
We are a family of four from Cincinnati, Ohio. We fell in love with the Smokies many years ago and love going to the chalet any chance we can get. We love all the seasons the Smokies have to offer.
Jim and Cathy Janszen purchased this Chalet in 1994
Why Jim and Cathy Janszen chose Chalet Village
We chose to buy in Gatlinburg because we love to hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our chalet is just 4 minutes from the National Park/ downtown Gatlinburg. Our kids each took their first hike in the Smokies when they were just 2 months old. Gatlinburg is such a family place and we have enjoyed numerous vacations with our children.

Excellent Smoky mountain chalet with all the amenities needed to enjoy a week of hiking
Very much enjoyed our stay here! As advertised, the place is located just out of gatlinburg and met our expectations for the price and amenities. Very much appreciated the easy communication with the owners, and commend them for having a clean, comfortable chalet.
Ive rented cabins before, but this one was by far the best. The property managers communicated well when needed and accomodated us quickly. We saw 6 bears while here and that was a fantastic experience. My only recommendation is to ensure your car doors are locked at all times because one bear opened our car and got it. No damage done but one amazing experience! We will absolutely be renting this cabin again soon.
Nice cabin close to downtown Gatlinburg
Had a good stay
Glad to hear! Hope to hear from you in the future!

Exactly what we needed for family of 4
Location is absolutely perfect. We’d never been to Gatlinburg or the Smoky's, so we didn’t know what to expect. But again... the location could not be beat! The cabin itself is adorable. Outdated, but “adorably outdated,” and very comfortable. We were there as a family of 4, including two toddlers. The set up was perfect and it’s worth noting ... it was super easy to “toddler proof” upon arrival. The living room furniture was so comfortable. Having the TV with access to On Demand shows for when we needed the kids to just sit was a bonus. Ha We used the hot tub every night - wish the jets were stronger, but it still was very pleasant and clean. The master bed wasn’t super comfortable, but I didn’t expect it to be. We did see a bear around the cabin (no surprise - it’s the Smoky’s), so lock your cars and just keep an eye out. Overall, again - location was perfect. Chalet was spacious and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but just what we needed. Very happy with it, and we would certainly recommend it to others.
Thank you for your lengthy, but spot on review. I think you summed it up well. The chalet is quaint and cozy in an absolutely wonderful location!
Glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves! Hope you choose us when you decide to return to Gatlinburg again!
