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.

Excellent Getaway Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful getaway here. The cabin was clean and beautiful. We enjoyed the pool table and hot tub. The 3 bedrooms each had their own bathroom, and each was on a different floor which allowed for privacy. The view off the porch was very nice. Greg provided great communication and was easy to work with. I would highly recommend staying here. It is close enough to town for convenience but far enough away to feel like you have gotten away.

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!
