About Greg Hays

My wife grew up in Knoxville, Tn. with wonderful memories of the Smokies. Once our family moved away from Knoxville, we returned to Gatlinburg as often as possible for family reunions, special holidays and celebrations, and weekends with friends after attending UT ballgames. We always enjoyed the fact that Gatlinburg offered something for every season - hiking in the spring and summer, beautiful fall panoramas in autumn, and skiing at Ober Gatlinburg and Christmas shopping in the winter. We decided to purchase rental property in the Smokies and fell in love with Ski View Lodge as soon as we saw it.

Greg Hays purchased this lodge in 2005

Why Greg Hays chose Gatlinburg

Located in Chalet Village, we knew this lodge would be the perfect setting for young and old alike. With the huge, stone fireplace, Great Room, kitchen, and 4 of the 6 bedrooms on the main level, we knew the layout would be great for people who could not navigate stairs easily. The in-suite bathrooms offered privacy and convenience. 2 Bedrooms downstairs with game systems and pool table provided a place for kids and adults alike.

What makes this lodge unique

There are wonderful views from every room of this lodge. The front of the lodge offers a view of Mt. LeConte and the back of the lodge is a beautiful wooded view of the Smoky Mountain Nature Preserve. The driveway wraps around the lodge so that guests never have to back out of a driveway and can unload their cars into the lodge from the main level or lower level (No carrying heavy luggage up and down the stairs!) The Great Room is perfect for large groups singing around the fireplace or enjoying a meal together.

Our favorite place yet!

  • 5 of 5

This was out third annual girls family getaway. Each year we have stayed at a different cabin. But there was always something that we didn't like. This year was awesome! The house was large enough for everyone to have their own bathroom and privacy space. We loved the large open family room/ kitchen area. The whole weekend was just perfect! We definitely plan to stay there again next year! Thank you so much!!!

Ski view lodge

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely amazing as far as comfort, location and view

goes. There were 9 adults and 2 14 year old girls. Even when everyone was in the great room, there was never a feeling of being crowded. It was also nice that everyone had a place at the dining room table. The bedrooms had plenty of space and were very private. When in the bedroom, you could hardly hear people in the great room. The two bedrooms downstairs were even more private. The furniture was nice and the kitchen had everything one would need to prepare any size meal.

Everyone raved about what a great time they had and how nice this place was and how they look forward to the next trip to Gatlinburg. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone looking for a fantastic time.

The only negative I can offer is that the time flew by so fast. The week was over before anyone was ready to leave. The owner was easy to work with and very responsive to any and all inquiries. Looking forward to my next stay at 1154 Ski View Dr.

We spent a weekend the first weekend Gatlinburg opened up after the "forest fires". This property was spared and it was absolutely gorgeous! There were eleven family members and the 6 bedrooms with 6 baths was perfect. The game room was perfect. The kitchen area with the large table and bar seating was more than adequate for our family. The view of the ski slope was amazing as they were making snow while we were there. All of my correspondence with Greg was extremely good considering all of the factors of the forest fire and trying to make sure the cabin was ok. We got everything worked out in short order after confirming that the town was going to let tourists back in. The house is stocked with all cooking utensils needed. The only thing we didn't think to bring that could have been helpful would have been a "baby gate" to put across the stairs going to the lower level. We made do with a couple of chairs.

Greg, thank you so much for all your help as we were trying to put this together. You have a beautiful home and we were glad that you shared it with us!! Any future trips to Gatlinburg we make we will certainly try to stay again!!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful. It was so clean. We love the layout. We are six couples in our 60s who reunion for a week every summer. We also loved the fact that there was a table long enough for us all to sit together for dinner. The kitchen was well stocked with every pan or utensil you would need. The cabin is on a hill and so you have a wonderful view in the evening. We even saw a a bear near the cabin.

Greg was a delight to work with. He was patient with us as we tried to work this out for the entire group. We would not hesitate to return to this home. We can highly recommend it to others.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this home over the July 4th Holiday weekend and it was great. There were 16 of us and with 6 bedrooms/baths, everyone had plenty of space and privacy. We enjoyed the great room/kitchen (large open area), but our favorites were the front and back deck. We spent most of our time on one or the other of the decks. The scenery was beautiful and with all the trees, we felt like we were all alone on the mountain. Would certainly go again. Thanks Greg
