The kitchen is fully stocked with refrigerator, stove, microwave, Keurig and standard coffee maker, and much more! There's a door that leads to the upper deck, which features 8 chairs, some tables, and a electric charbroil grill.

Amazing cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our getaway. The view was fantastic every morning to watch the sun rise over the mountains. We brought our snowboards to ride Ober, but it was 65 degrees everyday. We just enjoyed everything else Gatlinburg had to offer. There was only two of us in the cabin, which made it kind of awesome to have all the space. We couldn’t have asked for place to stay on our vacation.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. We loved having a Christmas tree for the kids. The kids also seen a bear crossing the street in front of the cabin and were so excited! The owners were very helpful and the accommodations were outstanding! The driveway was a little tricky but the cabin view was spectacular. Would highly recommend this property!

Great location and view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Decorated very nicely. And we loved having a Christmas tree for the holidays! Game loft area was awesome. The only trouble we had was the driveway - we would expect a steep driveway in the mountains, of course, but we consistently had problems making the turn in the drive getting up to the cabin. But that didn't deter from a lovely vacation. Would definitely recommend staying here. *No bears were spotted while we were there.

ADVENTUROUS

The view was breathtaking. When we weren't downtown checking out the stores, we were at the cabin playing pool and listening to music. The cabin has everything one would need for a great weekend full of memories. I will definitely come back.

About Julie

My husband and I purchased this home in February of 2012. We have worked hard to make this an enjoying place for everyone. We hope you love it as much as we do. Our sons also enjoy coming here. My oldest son is married and he and his wife love it here too. We put new flooring up and and down and did so other renovations. The lower level now has its own heating and cooling thermostat. We had professionals come in and take care of the wall and landscaping giving this the clean curb appeal that all will enjoy.

Julie purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Julie chose Chalet Village

The Mountain view, and the amazing view of Downtown Gatlinburg, the tram passing by is an amazing view too, The creek you can see and hear at different times of the year. There is so much to love. I couldn't begin to name them all. We are truly blessed to be able to own this cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

You can use all of the facilities of the Chalet Village owners club. With three pools, a tennis court, meeting rooms for just about any occasion. Wedding facilities and just about anything you can think of.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Belgium family loved their stay and they saw many bears. Pierre said he hasn't seen a bear in over 16 years and that was at the zoo. They posted great pictures on their facebook page. They love America and plan to return to our cabin!

Thanks to the many people that have reached out to us through phone calls and emails expressing their concern for us and our property. It has been overwhelming. The fact we were there and survived was amazing! The fact our property is still standing is another blessing. We want to thank everyone of our past guest and future guest for their prayers! They worked our property is intact and we only had to cancel a few reservations due to lack of power. Thanks for praying for the people and properties in east Tennessee following the fires.
