Chalet Village Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

I fell in love with the Smoky Mountains since the first time I set eyes on them. Vered and I came down to Gatlinburg for some R&R and next thing you know we bought a chalet to eventually retire in. We fixed it to our liking and now family, friends and YOU are able to enjoy relaxing and a great adventure…hence the name “Secondhand Lions” (a movie we have features in our video library)! Conveniently located just a few short minutes to downtown Gatlinburg, top of Ski Mountain (Ober Gatlinburg), quiet walkways and, of course, the Great Smoky Mountain park entrance where the adventure really begins.

“Secondhand Lions” …Tranquil setting with all the comforts of home! The great room is decorated in Native American art that I collected over the years. We displayed it for all to enjoy. The bedrooms are equipped with a pair of Jacuzzi Hydro Message Tubs for that deep relaxation.

Surrounded by trees and wildlife make this a very relaxing and comfortable stay. Please take a photo of your stay and send me. I’ll display the best photo of the month and choose the best photo of the year to give a free night too.

Special weekly rates and off-season rates…call or email to find out. Enjoy in season Owners Club facilities (choice of 3 on the mountain). If you are a ski fanatic let us know and we’ll put a package together for you during the ski season.

Thank you for choosing our “great mountain getaway”!

About Dave Lyons

Vered and I are two souls that love the outdoors. We climb mountains and hike all over the nation and internationally. We have climbed Mt. Rainier, Mt. Washington and Mesada in Israel. We're always looking for an adventure!

Dave Lyons purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Dave Lyons chose Gatlinburg

We were in Gatlinburg just passively looking at properties. We came across the one here at 991 Stans Road and fell in love with the potential. We refurbished it but still have big plans...for instance a waterfall with hot tub on the edge near the big windows. We want this to be our oasis because we love the area...it's like living a vacation!

What makes this chalet unique

'Secondhand Lions' is uniquely positioned. It is close to just about everything...not far up the mountain....just right! It's cozy but very spacious...very relaxing while viewing nature out of all those windows.

Great private chalet just 5 minutes from Downtown!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend staying in this chalet. It is exactly what we needed to get away and relax! The chalet is very private, as there is only one chalet neighboring it; however, a fence provides total privacy. It is literally only 5 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg! The driveway, which a previous review said was terrible to get up, was not nearly as bad as we were thinking based on this review. We had NO TROUBLE getting up the driveway. Compared to most driveways in Gatlinburg, this one was a piece of cake - it's short with a minor incline. There are two different ways to get to the chalet, and if you follow the OWNER'S DIRECTIONS, the driveway is easy to get up. If you come from the other direction, it makes it a little difficult, as it is a very sharp angle to turn.

The chalet itself was great, as it was very spacious, and there were tons of amenities provided - washer/dryer, 2 jacuzzis, flat screen Vizio tv (with HDMI capability to hook up your laptop), DVD player, wireless internet, Wii video game console, fireplace, and any kitchen supplies you would need! Chalet would be perfect for a couple's getaway or with a group of friends! Owner was very easy to get a hold of, as we had to call him once to ask a question. He answered his phone immediately, and even called later in the trip to make sure that the chalet was clean and that we had everything we needed.

We will definitely be recommending this chalet to our family and friends, and we will definitely be staying here again in the future!!

Owner's Response: Hi Jo Ann, thanks for your comments it always helps us improve and make the experience more enjoyable. Unfortunately, nestled in the mountains with different elevation gains there are not many places that are flat to walk pets unless a little strenuous exercise doesn't deter someone— that's about all there is to offer there. Before you booked our chalet you mentioned if there was a place to walk your pets. I described we had a big parking area and driveway but chalet village is in the mountains and I mentioned you could walk your pets up Stans Road because there is not much car traffic but it was hilly. I also mentioned that there was a quiet walkway at the end of town (Gatlinburg) that was flat. As far as the view, we have wildlife and trees and the piece of being in a mountain setting far removed from the hustle and bustle of brick and mortar but the real view is when you get out into nature and experience what the Smokey Mtns. have to offer. Thanks for staying with us and I'm sorry we didn't meet all your criteria.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was perfect for our family to get away for a few days and experience Gatlinburg for the first time. It was roomy, clean and well appointed. The location was great- close to town but seemed much further when sitting out on the upstairs balcony. It was easy to find and while the driveway was steep it was in great condition and easy to drive up. Communication and instructions from the owner were timely and clear. I would highly recommend it, especially for first time visitors!

Well maintained and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was well maintained & stocked with necessities. It's only 5-10 mins from Gatlinburg & the roads are dauntingly steep. The town was disappointing only because of its excessive commercialism, but there's tons of shopping, restaurants & things to do, like mini golf. One recommendation is to stop for groceries before coming into town. There's one local grocery store & it was insanely busy & overpriced. The Smokies are incredibly beautiful & since that was the reason we came, we spent a lot of time hiking. Dave, the owner, was super nice & open to all questions. I would definitely recommend staying there!

Very nice, clean, and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Dave was the nicest owner I've ever dealt on vrbo. He answered all my questions very promptly which is important to me. The chalet is amazing. It's very well kept and tastefully decorated and conveniently located. The driveway is a little tricky at first but once you get the hang of it it's a breeze. Overall I was extremely pleased.

Property is located just off Ski Mountain Road. When you turn left onto Stans Road it's the first driveway on the right. Just a few short minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and to the top of the mountain at Ober Gatlinburg just up Ski Mountain Road.
