Overview

About the property

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-13)

GREAT NEWS. Our chalet survived the Gatlinburg wildfires very well!! The side of Ski Mountain that we are on is outside the fire footprint .From our chalet, you still have great views. Thank you to all who have sent thoughts and prayers.

The Kids won't want to leave!!! Our kid friendly home has something to offer everyone!!EXCELLENT views which include beautiful sunrises over Mt. LaConte, the aerial tram, downtown Gatlinburg, a game room with FREE REAL arcade games + (NEW)Playstation2 and games that will for sure entertain adults and children for hours,located near one of the three Chalet Village community heated pools (open mid-May to mid Sept.),and 1/2 from the entrance to Ober Gatlinburg ski area. All of this for a great value!! PLUS, we have PARKING!! We have a parking area that can fit 4-5 cars across and everyone can get out or park a motorcycle trailer!!

Our Chalet is a large A-frame design. It has three levels with a bath on each level. The first level has 2 bedrooms (1Q, 1F), a full bath and a laundry facility (washer and dryer). The main level has 2 bedrooms (2Q's), a full bath, the living/dining room,gas fireplace with sunken living room, kitchen, and decks which surround 2 sides of our home, and the hot tub. The 3rd level has a bedroom (1K + couch), plus a bed (1F + loveseat) on the loft, a bath. The game room is its own room off this level and has couches. Our cabin is close to all the area attractions(Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, Cherokee, National Park entrance and more). It sits on top of Ski Mountain in the Chalet Village neighborhood and our street ends with the boundry to the National Forrest which allows for an occasional visit from wildlife, i.e. 'L'il Smokey', a black bear, that likes to visit our home from time to time in search of their next meal. Eventhough, we are on top of the mountian, we are still only 3 miles from downtown Gatlinburg and 15 minutes to Pigeon Forge.

We have WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICE, FREE LONG DISTANCE PHONE SERVICE for US & Canada, and digital cable. We have stereo systems, DVD and VHS players and a movie library for your viewing pleasure. For your comfort, we offer luxury linens and towels, a complete kitchen and dishes with a set up for 15.

Our home has something for everyone...entertainment, close to all area attractions, views, the house is located a lot away from your neighbors on all sides, and fun. The word I usually use to describe our home is that is has 'Great Flow' for a group. While the kids are up in the game room, the adults can enjoy a movie or views from the deck.

We would love for you to stay with us. Just e-mails us today.

Sincerely,

John & Laura and Sandy & Steve

Great for Kids

  • 3 of 5

We spent our Fall Break at the Bear Drop in and boy oh boy did the Bear Drop in!! We had very up close views of 2 separate Mom and babies daily! They enjoyed the hot tub as much as we did!! We really enjoyed watching them and one of the kids left a bag of candy in the car and the Bear opened the door and grabbed the bag of candy for her 2 cubs! Kinda scary and I'm glad the kids where not down there and we watched from the deck!

We arrived a little early and the cleaning lady was there and let us bring our bags in so we could get groceries which was nice.

The cabin in on the older side and really would only need a few things done to make it a 5 star. The carpet while it maybe clean is in tough shape. It's a little on the dark side because of the paneling and the steps are pretty steep so if you have someone who can't walk good might be to much.

The house was stocked with plenty of towels and blankets and the kitchen has everything you need. We used the grill one night so it was nice to have the gas already connected.

Beautiful views from the deck.

We enjoyed the game room. The pictures show a foosball table but, it wasnt there and the pool table is not in shape for a real game of pool as the fabric is torn in places.

The couch in the Master bedroom is a loveseat and didn't turn into a sofa sleeper like it states but, we had plenty of space.

The owners responded very promptly when I had a question.

Overall it was awesome to see the Bears and it's a fun cabin if your using the game room!!

Thanks for letting us stay!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly what we expected! Gorgeous view and plenty of parking. Had 7 kids 10 and under they didn't even want to go downtown they loved the place so much. Didn't see any bears at the chalet, but definently had some visitors while we were gone. There was plenty of evidence I'm pretty sure it tried to get in our hot tub!!! Overall for a large group this was perfect and will be visiting again!

Large, fun, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Within 2 hours of arriving at the home, we saw a beautiful family of bears - a mama and three little cubs. We didn't see them again, but what a sight!

The home is conveniently located outside Gatlinburg, and has some beautiful views of the mountains. Yes, the drive up to the home is slow and steep, but it's only a couple miles. The home has several bedrooms, A.C., and WiFi. We brought six children with us, and children and adults all enjoyed the arcade room. There were arcade games for everyone, as well as a pool table. The living room was a nice place to relax, as well as the front porch in the mornings and evenings.

We definitely recommend the home to anyone with children traveling to the Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge area.
