About Pam and Patrick

My husband and I are teachers who have been blessed to discover this wonderful valley!

Pam and Patrick purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Pam and Patrick chose Almond

I have been coming up here to vacation with my parents since I was a child. Now that my husband has also fallen in love with the area, we decided it was the only choice for our family vacation home! We love traveling and feel that of all the places we have been this is our very favorite place to be when we have time off. The house and the surrounding area provide everything a family might expect when they imagine vacationing in the Great Smoky Mountains.

What makes this chalet unique

Amazing location uniquely close to everything yet with rural seclusion.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Cozy and very comfortable spot. This was our first VRBO stay. We probably should have called about a few minor concerns = no dish towels. But the whole stay was great, as promised.

Great place and location!

Great location in the mountains with still being only 15 minutes away from Bryson City and the Polar Express. The place was very clean and we would definitely stay here again
