Pure Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin with an amazing view of the mountains. Plenty of room for our family of five. The hot tub was a hit for our family. The kids enjoyed playing in the game room and watching the TV after a fun day of sight seeing. Lynn was a pleasure to work with. She gave us a lot of useful information before the trip and checked in with us several times during our stay. She made sure everything was perfect for us. I highly recommend staying at this location, I wouldn't change a thing!

Great Mountain View

  • 5 of 5

Lynn did a great job offering hospitality with directions / things to do / things to be aware of (weather, bears, road closures, etc) along with a clean house that offered soft bed sheets, games, foos ball table, and pool table.

Great view and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Great Cabin, great view and have just enough room for our family. It was clean, and beds were comfy. We even saw a mom and 2 cubs on our way up to the cabin. The driveway is steep but it was worth the view. My kids loved the game room. Convenient to Gaitlinburg. We would love to come back and explore more of the park. Thanks for a great vacation.

About Lynn

My husband and I were married in Gatlinburg nearly 20 years ago. We searched many times for the cabin we stayed in when we were married, to no avail. In late 2013, while cabin hunting, we stumbled unexpectedly across that cabin. Needless to say, we purchased it. Our heart has always been in these beautiful mountains, and we enjoy sharing our dreams, and the beauty with other families. The memories we share, and those that are shared with us, are memories of a lifetime.... they are true BLESSINGS. You can see our first true love, 'Grandview', and read our full story, by typing the listing number 558850 into the search or going to VRBO Listing #558850 (See 'Owners Story') .

Lynn purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Lynn chose Chalet Village

It's private, located in an area that we love, Chalet Village, convenient to downtown and connected to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
