Photos and Description of the Chalet Village vacation chalet rental

2 Bd/ 2 Bath Sleeps 6

'Sarah's Bear Heaven' is a vaulted ceiling 'A' Frame ski Chalet minutes from the Ober Gatlinburg ski area and just a 5 min drive down ski mountain road to downtown Gatlinburg or the National Park entrance. Check out our video (hit the button beside photos) and see more incredible views from the deck, the aerial tram to Ober Gatlinburg passing by, amazing close up guest video of a comical little wild bear family just 2 blocks from the chalet on the way down the mountain, and our favorite ending driving by wild turkeys at Cades Cove. The view from the front deck of the mountains and sunrises is incredible, watch the Tram from the front deck as it climbs up to the Ober Ski Lodge. The Chalet has two levels with a king bedroom on each equipped with beautiful wall mounted electric fireplaces. There is trundle bed in the loft that can convert to two twins, and a pull out queen sleeper sofa on the main floor. Amenities include a full kitchen, free Wi-Fi, cable TV, central heat A/C, wood burning natural stone fireplace (we supply some easy to use and clean burning duralogs), pool table room with electric fireplace and arcade game, board games, card table, and hot tub. New convenient 2 burner propane grill. Featured on HGTV's House Hunters episode #65 01! Come and experience what guests from our 63 first year bookings enjoyed as we continue to decorate the chalet with local artisan works and classic Gatlinburg bear and ski prints. Enjoy all the entertainment and action in downtown Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge including Ripley's Aquarium and Dollywood Amusement park, then escape up ski mountain road to the privacy of your own chalet. Take scenic drives to nearby Clingman's dome observation tower, follow a beautiful rushing river road off the Gatliburg bypass to Cades Cove, or take the roaring forks auto tour right out of Gatlinburg. The area has something for everyone from free Moonshine & wine tastings to the Arts and Craft Pittman center along Glades Rd with glass blowers, potters, and chainsaw carvers. Whether you are looking for a romantic weekend away in a real 'A' frame ski chalet or an unforgettable family vacation we welcome you to try a stay at Sarah's Bear Heaven Chalet.

You won't forget the view. Access to all three Chalet Village owners club areas and swimming pools from Memorial day through Labor day. Check out our links sections.

Enjoy several restaurant and attraction discount offers with the Owners Club guest pass.

You are just minutes from the Ober Gatlinburg ski area open year round, or try a mountain coaster ride.

Check out our review section, everyone has been very impressed with the view and our attempts to keep a rustic ski cabin feel to the tastefully decorated chalet.

***Our No Surprises Section- Stairs-Bears- 4wd in the winter***

1 -Do note the stairs to the chalet in picture #3 ( our stairway to heaven LOL) three flights , but well worth it when you see the view from our deck without that scary feel like you are falling off the edge of the mountain.

2- Bears can randomly wander through or if you are very lucky stop and eat berries, nuts, and wild plums in the trees at any cabin in the area especially in the late summer and fall as they get ready to hibernate. Do not leave food in your car or any trash outside. Never feed wild bears. They are special and amazing to see- ( cubs high in our plum tree is something we will never forget) but we do not need any more bear families killed for human mistakes please.

3- Gatlinburg does a great job with the roads in winter, but 4wd/ Awd is recommended in the winter. The roads to our Chalet village cabin are all paved but that awesome view comes from being in the mountains not far from the Ober Gatlinburg ski area.

Enjoy and check out our review section. Our over 60 guests from our 1st year have left great tips and advise.
