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.
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!
