About the property

Great Mountain Views in a 2 Bed/2 Bath cabin only minutes to Gatlinburg

Welcome to our little piece of heaven in the smoky mountains. The home was custom built in the fall of 2017. I realize reviews are very important when searching for a vacation home. I purchased the home in the fall of 2016 and only owned it for 2 months before the forest fires. Our first guest in the new home is 11/18/17, with that said we should start to get more 5 star reviews. I have kept the same house keeper and as you can see from the previous reviews she does a great job. Our home is located on what the locals call the spur. It sits between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. From the main road running between the two towns take Wiley Oakley Road, which is the road that runs up the mountain beside the Gatlinburg Welcome center. We are only a 1/2 mile from the welcome center. This road is well maintained during the winter so you don't have to worry about getting up or down the road. During the spring, summer and fall you can drive down to the welcome center and take the trolley to Gatlinburg and it will bring you back to the welcome center. The fee is less than a dollar per person per trip and is well worth it so you don't have to drive around town for 30 minutes trying to find a parking spot. The home sits in a great location with fantastic mountain views from either of the three decks of our home. This home is very comfortable with 1 King size bedroom and 1 queen size bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. There are 2 full bathrooms, both with a tiled shower / tub and granite vanity tops. The second floor deck is a nice size and has plenty of seating with gorgeous views of the mountains. On the first floor you have the living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry, queen size bedroom & full bathroom with tiled tub/shower and granite vanity top. The Kitchen has everything you need and also has granite counter tops. The kitchen is fully stocked to make a meal in, and it has all stainless steel appliances that were brand new in the fall of 2017 including a dishwasher so you don't have to wash all those dishes while you are on vacation. The living room has cathedral wood ceilings, large ceiling fan, fireplace, flat screen 50" 4k smart TV, DVD player, leather sofa with pull out queen bed and a leather chair. Off the living room is a spacious deck (all three deck floors are composite decking so there is no worry of splinters when walking in your bare feet) with a 4 person hot tub, high top patio table with 4 chairs so the deck railing does not impede your view and char coal grill. Both bedrooms have 32" HD smart TV's, ceiling fans, dresser, closet and luggage rack. All the beds have bed protectors to ensure the ultimate cleanliness. For the kids and adults there is a Air Hockey table for your enjoyment. All the floors in the home are hard wood floors, except in the bathrooms which they are tiled. A few things we did with this cabin to help it be as safe as possible for us and you the guest is that we installed a motion detecting light so if you have to go out to your car in the evening you won't be startled by a bear standing next to your car or even on the deck (it's always a good idea to look out the window before going out just in case there is a bear on the deck or in the driveway). The second thing we did to this cabin was not make the main deck accessible to ground level. We know it is a little inconvenient, but we feel it is well worth the inconvenience. When you are out on the deck enjoying yourself, you don't have to worry about a bear standing next to you when you turn around. The peace of mind that all your family members and friends can be safe out on the deck and you don't have to worry about things like that happening is very soothing.

We want to make it as easy as possible to come to our home. We provide all your towels, wash cloths, bath hand towels, kitchen drying towels, dish cloths, sheets, pillows & comforters. We also provide high efficiency wash and dryer. Lastly we stock the home with a starter pack of bars of soap for each of the bathrooms, a washing machine soap packet, dishwasher packet, a roll of paper towels, a trash bag and a roll of toilet tissue for each bathroom. We also provide a large array of Television channels including HBO & Cinemax, high speed wireless internet and unlimited phone calls to the USA lower 48 states and Canada at no charge. Pay per view and movies rentals from cable are not permitted, however with the free wifi and all the TV's being smart TV's feel free to use your Netflix or any other TV device.

Included in your stay is the Chalet Village owners club access. The closest one is only a 2 minute drive from our home. The owner club has 2 swimming pools, a kiddie pool, fitness room, table tennis, vending machines, playground for the kids as well as a lighted tennis court. The tennis court also has a basketball hoop. All the amenities at the Owners club are included in your stay at absolutely no charge to you the guest.

We feel it is very important to provide each guest with a clean home when you enter. I will personally call each guest upon their arrival to make sure they are completely satisfied with the cleaning of the home, confirm that all the pictures you see on this site is what you see when you walk into the home and make sure there are no problems. I have done this with my condo I have in Myrtle Beach (vrbo # 487318) and I feel this ensures that each guest is completely satisfied when they arrive. If you are not satisfied for some reason we will work on any issue to get it resolved as quickly as possible.

There is NO SMOKING allowed in the home! No pets in the home as well. No exceptions.

I hope you choose to stay in our cabin as we strive to make it a very pleasurable renting experience

About Andy

We have been coming down to Gatlinburg since 1998, and absolutely love it here. We bought a condo in Myrtle Beach (vrbo #487318) back in 2013 and we loved it there, so we decided to build a place here in the Smoky Mountains as well. We strive to provide all of our guests with a very clean home as we have strict guidelines for our housekeeper. If something is not right we will fix as fast as possible to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible. We want to make renting from us a joyful and pleasurable experience.

Andy purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Andy chose Chalet Village

We chose this property based on the location, views and ease to get to (especially in the winter months). The location is less than a 5 minute drive to Gatlinburg and less than a 10 minute drive to Pigeon Forge. The views from this home are outstanding from the first floor deck or the second floor deck. The Bedrooms are spacious. The last reason for choosing this property was the driveway. I have stayed at many places in Gatlinburg where I never went back just because of the driveway. This drive is not very long or steep, and it has mostly flat parking at the top.

Beautiful, clean, and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean, very organized, and had everything you would need in the kitchen and everywhere else. The view from the porches is great and though the driveway was steep, our Toyota Highlander had no problems (and let's face it, you are in the mountains). Only a short drive to downtown Gatlinburg and a short uphill drive to Ober (which was great because we liked having freedom to drive up and ski when we wanted). On top of all that, Andy was fantastic. He communicated with me before, during, and after the stay (and provided great tips on trails and places to eat). I would recommend this place to anybody looking for a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: So happy to hear you were thrilled with the cabin, location and that you had everything you needed to have a great stay. I know the driveway is most likely steeper than most people have at their home where ever you live. However, a lot of the homes in the mountains in the area have an incline to the driveway. Part of the reason I choose the home when I bought it was the driveway. It is a little steep, but compared to a lot of the homes in the area it is pretty good, not to mention, it is only about 60 feet long and is pretty flat at the top where you park. I hope this clarifies for anyone reading the review. I hope you and your family will come back soon. Happy Vacationing Andy

Beautiful home with great mountain views!!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this home for your next Gatlinburg getaway. We stayed the first week of January 2018 and had a wonderful stay. This is a newly constructed home and is just beautiful!! The mountain views from the decks are amazing. Especially the top deck. The kitchen is very well stocked with anything you may need if you choose to cook your meals at the cabin. The beds were very comfortable and our daughter loved the air hockey table. We make yearly trips to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area and one thing I get very frustrated with are cabins that are not cleaned properly before we arrive. This home was very clean and we didn't have to do anything, which is wonderful after a long trip. We were able to just come in and relax. I would recommend 4x4 or AWD in the winter months though in case it gets icy or snows. The location is great and is very close to both downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The owner is wonderful to work with. He is very friendly and very quick to respond when booking and to answer any questions you may have during your stay. We had one very minor issue while we were there and he had it handled for us right away. Thanks again for a wonderful stay Andy!! We will definitely be back again soon!!

Owner's Response: I am so happy you had a wonderful stay. We try very hard to give every guest a 5 star vacation. If we were to get less than a 5 star review we would feel we failed you as a host. Thankfully we have received all 5 star reviews so we are very proud of that. There was a small issue that you noticed when you got there about 10:00 at night and we had it fixed the next day by 1:00. The views are wonderful at our home even in the winter months. I hope to see you back again next year. Happy Vacationing Andy

Excellent Cabin!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was brand new with a very homey feel and had great views from the decks. Very easy to get too as well. The owner was one of the best ones we have ever dealt with in the 14+ years of visiting Gatlinburg. He is very attentive and makes certain everything is to your liking. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great experience in the smokies!

I truly want every guest to have the best vacation possible. We are so glad you enjoyed everything. We look forward to having you back again soon. Happy Vacationing! Andy

Brand new, clean, perfect mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The cabin is a perfect mountain retreat to get away from it all yet close to town. We loved being so close to the national forest. While at the cabin we enjoyed the hot tub at night when temperatures were well below freezing! My husband loves to cook and the kitchen was properly stocked with all the amenities and he enjoyed grilling on the charcoal pit. The owner is quick to respond with any questions and is so nice and accommodating. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again if we ever make it back to The Smoky Mountains.

Gorgeous cabin-Fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin inside and out. We enjoyed our weekend getaway at the Bear Pad and plan on booking more vacations here in the future. The only issue we had was the fireplace wasn’t operational but that was an issue that was no fault of the owner. The view is incredible, the location is secluded but isn’t very far from Gatlinburg or PF. Loved it!!

Owner's Response: Soooo Happy you enjoyed your stay at our home in the mountains. I apologize that the fireplace was not working for you during your stay. We talked and text for about an hour when you noticed the issue at 10:30 pm to try to trouble shoot the issue. I had my builder come up to take a look at it the next day and then you checked out the day after. The fireplace has been fixed so you won't have a problem on your next trip. According to you the house keeper continues to do a great job and the home was very clean and orderly upon your arrival. We look forward to having you back soon. Happy Vacationing. Andy

Beautiful with breath-taking view!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I cannot speak highly enough about this place and the owner. The place was immaculate, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for ‘dining in,’ including the preparation of a full Thanksgiving dinner!! Since this place is located in the mountains the views were breath-taking from both the main deck and the upper deck. This place is close to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg (i.e. Smokey Mountain National Park) so we were able to do alot of sightseeing, hiking and shopping. After a busy day, we were able to relax in the spacious hot tub and enjoy the views. This place was so beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable that it exceeded our expectations. The owner did everything possible to make sure we had everything we needed to make sure our stay was perfect, and it was!!!! We will definitely be placing this home at the top of our list for future Tennessee visits.
