About Christine Holmes

My husband and I live in NYS. He owns and operates a collision repair shop with our sons.

We bought our first home on Ski Mtn in 1993 after taking a ride up the mountain with his brother and wife who live about 1 1/2 hrs. from Gatlinburg. We sold that home and and bought a cabin in 1996. Then in 2003, I found out I had lung cancer so we sold the home. We thought we would never go back again.

I was lucky. I am now a 14 yr lung cancer survivor.

Christine Holmes purchased this chalet in 2011

Why Christine Holmes chose Gatlinburg

In 2011 we decided we would love to buy another home there. We realized how much we missed those mountains and the area.

When we went down, we stayed at Wynstone while we looked at other homes. We loved everything about Wynstone, the high ceilings, the bedrooms with the baths inside them and the fact that there was a yard. We could walk all around the house. We couldn't do that at either of the other homes we had owned there. Plus, the view and the location were both wonderful. Another plus for us was the nice driveway. Easy in and out. Plus plenty of room so we could invite our friends.

What makes this chalet unique

To us the benefits of this home are many. We love everything. The home itself and the location. Just a 10 minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg and the entrance to the park and Ober Gatlinburg. The beautiful mountain views and the surprise visits from a bear now and then if we're lucky.

Both my husband and I enjoy going down every chance we get. Plus the home is large enough for us to invite friends and family.

It is just so peaceful there. A place where we can unwind and totally relax.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our time at this beautiful home which is both spacious and cozy. The location is perfect and has amazing views of the mountains. The owner is responsive to any questions or concerns. Gatlinburg has something for everyone, from the youngest to the most mature. Highly recommend this property.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home in a beautiful setting. It was perfect for us, our daughters and their families. We couldn't have found a better spot for our annual family outing.

We found the house exceptionionally clean and nicely furnished and decorated.

Getting there would have been tricky if not for the owner's helpful directions. The owner was also informative and friendly.

It was our women's annual National Park Expedition trip. We could not have picked a better place to stay. The home is lovely, clean, well appointed, has all of the comforts and is topped with beautiful views. Chris was ALWAYS quick with all responses. I would highly recommend a stay here.

Great Getaway at The Wynstone Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect at the house. It has a beautiful view of the mountains and all the inside decorations and furniture make the house a real diamond. The kitchen was well equipped with all the things you need to cook and prepare food. Has a nice outside area to play some outdoor yard games or to just sit and enjoy God's beautiful creation. The bedrooms all were very spacious with very comfortable beds and each had it's own private bathroom. Getting to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and the hiking trails were all a pretty easy drive to get to. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate the place a 10 and will likely go back in the near future.

Thanks Christine for a wonderful getaway.

Beautiful Home. Great View.

  • 4 of 5

What a great place to spend Easter with family! Chris was extremely helpful and responsive when we wanted to check in early. The rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. The linens were top notch - none of those Motel 6 (stiff and tiny) towels. Everything was clean and well-maintained for the most part. There were a couple of window screens that were bent and would not have kept bugs out if we'd elected to open them. Views from both decks were outstanding. We very much appreciated the "starters" - toiletries, dish tabs, laundry pods, trash bags, salt & pepper; lots of VRBOs don't include ANY of those things. We didn't realize that there would be firewood provided so we took our own but that, too, is a fabulous EXTRA. (Yes, I HAVE paid $10 for 6 pieces of firewood - UGH!!) The hot tub and the pool room were our favorite hangouts but the kitchen and living room also made it easy to be together with plenty of space. The small sitting areas were also very nice when someone needed "alone time". The TVs in the common areas were a bit small for the size rooms they were in but we weren't there to watch TV so it wasn't a big deal for us. My only caution - and again, for us, it was not an issue at all but - you need to be in decent physical shape to get around. This would probably NOT be a good choice for anyone who can't manage at least two flights of steps. While there are two bedrooms on the ground floor, the kitchen and the living room are 20-25 steps up. (I didn't actually count them but this is a good approximation).

We did not have small children with us on this trip but I would certainly recommend Wynstone for travelers with small children (well, except for the stairs thing). There were toys, movies, games, a playpen and a high chair, but not a lot of fragile stuff lying about.

We only left one time and that was to go hiking. The road is pretty winding. I would highly recommend "provisioning up" before you head in and then just taking advantage of a glorious place to rest, relax and enjoy time with the people you love. We would definitely stay there again if the opportunity presented itself.
