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 Chalet Village

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.

It is the perfect location for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all, big enough to comfortably handle our 1 brother- 4 sisters and family reunion. Giant table so we could all eat together .Relaxing outdoor spaces with great porches.

Quiet with fabulous scenery. Highly recommend this property and the owner, Greg, is a sweetheart to work with.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Chalet. Since all 6 bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, large parties have plenty of privacy, yet there is plenty of room in the family/dining for everyone to dine together. You will find that Gatlinburg has something to offer in all four seasons so we hope you come back again and again. We appreciate your business and hope to hear from you again in the near future. Thanks again for choosing Ski View Lodge.

Wonderful Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place for 5 couples for the weekend! We enjoyed being able to cook our own meals and eat on the deck or around the spacious table. Views were wonderful. Close enough to the park to take advantage of an early morning hike before the trails were crowded. The 6 bedrooms and 6 baths were perfect for our needs!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us!

very nice chalet up in the hills overlooking Gatlinburg

  • 4 of 5

We are a group of friends (3 couples and 3 others) getting together every 2 years for a few days, combing sightseeing, reminiscing, and vacation for a few days. This chalet is indeed as advertised on VRBO; it had all the facilities that were noted. The host Greg Hays responded to any emails we had promptly. The renter gets an access code the day before arrival; the house has 4 access doors, with the front door having a keypad for entry; they all worked well. To enter, one must drive up a very steep and curved paved driveway, to find space for about 7-8 cars; I imagine that this might be an issue if there is snow or ice, but we had good weather and found the access adequate. There are 4 bedrooms on the main floor and 2 in the basement (which opens onto a covered patio with a hot tub). Each has a comfortable bed, with its own full bathroom, TV and closet. Space was not an issue. There seemed to be only one climate control for the whole house, which responded to our needs. The main floor has a very large room for lounging, cooking and eating (table seating about 12 or so). Fridge/freezer was adequately large enough; the dishwasher and washer/dryer (the latter coin-operated) were fine (one must use only specific washer packets). Small patio in the front of the house had a view of mountains in the distance through the trees; the view in the back was forest (not easy however to walk there as the house is high on a ridge). Downstairs had a pool table and a 4-player soccer game table. One needs to bag one's trash and deposit it in a bear-proof bin at the bottom of the driveway. The big fires that hit the town in 2016 seem to have missed this immediate area, but one sees many places nearby fully burned. We were very pleased overall with this place and the service. We might have preferred a nicer view out the window (one sees mostly trees) and individual room climate controls (and the security deposit was only refunded a month afterwards), but such are minor issues.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. There are 2 AC units in the chalet. One controls the main floor and 1 controls the downstairs. I don't know of any chalets or cabins that would have individual climate controls in each room. The full size washer and dryer downstairs are not coin operated and the only requirement for detergent is that you use he (high efficiency) detergent. Not sure why you thought they were coin operated. We do return the security deposits after we receive audit sheet from house cleaners within 30 days from departure as noted in the contract agreement. Glad to hear you received yours within 30 days since you reside in Canada. Thanks again for staying with us at Ski View Lodge.

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.
