Chalet Village chalet description

Cardinal Ridge is a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom 4,200 SF chalet that sleeps 14. Built in 1999, it is new to the rental market in 2012. The property sits at one of the highest elevations in Tennessee with unobstructed clear day views of 70 miles. The home is located across the street and has direct access to the 500,000 acre Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Ten minutes to Gatlinburg town center and Ober Gatlinberg year around attractions.

Cardinal Ridge can accommodate/sleep up to 14 people. It has ample off street parking within its gated driveway. Additional accommodations for large groups totaling up to 26 people can be arranged with the rental of the two adjacent and walkable cabins (sleep 6 each) to Cardinal Ridge through our local rental management company.

We have taken care to convert this once private residence to a very comfortable rental chalet. There are 3 king suites, 1 queen suite and 1 bonus suite that includes a queen, a full, two futons and a baby crib. All the bedrooms have HDTV flat screens and ceiling fans.

The lower level game room consists of a wet bar, pool table, Foosball and a dartboard. It also has a media room with a 52 inch flat screen 'smart' TV and a gas fireplace. Outside the game room on the lower deck you will find a new Hot Tub with wonderful views.

The main floor living room has a 18 foot ceiling, a gas fireplace, a 55 inch flat screen 'smart' TV, and a tall-boy table and chairs for mountain viewing while dining.

The main level kitchen features a center island with plenty of counter and cupboard space, matching stainless steel side-by-side refrigerator, microwave, and stove/range. An eat-in kitchen table and chairs with a 32' wall mounted HDTV completes this room.

The main floor is also comprised of a entry foyer, formal dining room, full laundry room, full bathroom, a master king bedroom suite and doors leading to an outside covered deck.

The upper floor consists of three large bedroom suites (all with mountain views) and a full bathroom.

Outside, the front entrance has been professionally landscaped with flowering shrubs and ground cover. The covered front porch has bench seating, a full guard rail system and a key-less front door lock system.

This home has central heat and air conditioning, thermal-pane screened windows, and all doors have screen doors. New wooden planked floors or ceramic tile is found in all living areas. Original, signed and numbered framed art work is hung throughout the chalet.

This is a pet-friendly property for up to a 25 lb pet. We have a large metal portable kennel available for pets when guests are away from the chalet.

                      The Gatlinburg, TN area is a premier family vacation destination that combines world class attractions and amusement parks with the bonus of free access to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Located in Eastern Tennessee near the Appalachian Trail, Gatlinburg features the only snowboarding and skiing destination in TN.

                      Lodging alternatives to typical motels and hotels include a large network of cabins and chalets that can be rented for overnight stays of a few days to a full month or more. Chalet Village is a sought after residential community that is built on one of the highest elevations in the SE USA and features winter-time skiing, extensive wildlife including the black bear, swimming and tennis at the Owner's Club facilities and plus easy access to the villages of Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

                      Well known area attractions include Dollywood, Titanic Museum, Ripley's Believe It or Not, Old Smoky Moonshine and Wonderworks. Gatlinburg also is known for its 120 person capacity Ober Gatlinburg Tramway to the mountain top, the Trolley System and the 400 foot tall Space Needle. All this with the back drop of the Great Smoky National Park system makes this a special destination. July and October are peak demand months.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: David and Betty (owners) are semi-retired Snowbirds. We are residents of Bradenton, FL but summer over on the cool waters of the Great Lakes. We are active investors and have found Gatlinburg TN to be a promising retirement and resort area a day's drive from FL to plant a flag! We have an English Cream Golden Retriever, Ivy, who loves to travel along with us.

                      Why the Owner Chose Chalet Village:
                      We fell in love with this property because of its high elevation in the mountains and the close proximity to our FL and Great Lakes homes. We desire to have access to all four seasons without the long cold northern winters nor the hot and humid summers found in FL. This property is relatively new and it is good size for accommodating large families and friends. The long distance mountain views are on pare with beach-front property in terms of being special.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      One unique benefit of being at 3,200 feet elevation is that the temperature here is about 10 degrees cooler than downtown Gatlinburg which is at 1,200 feet. This property provides a welcomed summer temperature drop from the surrounding SE USA. Another is that no structures will ever be built on the National Park land across the street!
