Built in 2001, ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS is a beautiful three-story chalet-style cabin on Mt. Harrison (also known as Ski Mountain) with grandiose 180° year-round views of the Great Smoky Mountains, Gatlinburg, the aerial tram, and more. At night, the valley below comes alive sparkling with the spectacular neon and twinkling city lights of Gatlinburg. It's located close to downtown in prestigious Chalet Village but offers an air of seclusion and enchantment by it's location less than 500 yards from the boundary of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

In fact, if you've ever taken the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tram up Ski Mountain you have already seen this chalet from the air as the tram passes above it's decks!

Arriving in downtown Gatlinburg, you can get your first look at your vacation rental home by sighting about three quarters of the way up along the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tram lines rising up the mountainside.

Approximately 2 miles from traffic light #10 in downtown Gatlinburg, ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS is an easy drive up Ski Mountain on good paved roads. (no scary narrow roads to worry about).
ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS utilizes a keyless entry as well as a state-of-the-art security system so check-in is a breeze and loss of keys not a concern.

The white pine walls, stacked stone fireplace and wood beamed ceiling soaring 30 feet into the air are impressive but what will astound and leave you absolutely breathless is the walls of glass on all three floors with fantastic views of the Great Smoky Mountains and the city lights of Gatlinburg.

ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS boasts the design of a modern day alpine chalet from the Swiss Alps. It is open and spacious offering the ultimate in privacy with a luxurious king master suite on each of its three levels. Each suite has its own over-sized whirlpool jetted tub, private bath with double vanities, large shower and wall-mounted hairdryers, flatscreen TVs with DVD players, phone, and alarm clock. There is plenty of closet and drawer space available. Each room has been professionally decorated with high quality fine furnishings. You'll feel pampered by the luxurious high thread count linens and soft plush towels.

The main level greatroom has breathtaking views of the mountains and features a comfortable leather sofa with a pull-out queen sleeper, a leather loveseat, slate-top tables, colorful tiffany-style lamps, a large 50 inch HD TV with DVD player, and a massive stone ventless gas remote-controlled fireplace. Dine while enjoying a magnificient view of the mountains on our comfortable soft leather chairs and bar stools of our main dining area. A slate top server with wine rack compliments the slate top dining table. The well appointed, well lit kitchen area of the greatroom features plenty of dishes, glassware, cooking utensils, pans, and everything you'll need to prepare and serve fine meals, all while enjoying a great view of the mountains! Appliances include a microwave oven, electric range, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with ice and filtered water in the door, dishwasher, toaster, blender, coffee maker, crock pot and electric can opener. It is fun to cook in this kitchen!

Step out of the greatroom onto the huge upper deck and you'll find plenty of comfortable seating including teak rocking chairs, tables, a wood picnic table, and a charcoal grill. Whether stargazing, working on your tan, enjoying the view, grilling or chilling, you'll love this deck! Give a wave to the passengers as the aerial tram passes overhead while you're enjoying your favorite drink.

Also on the main level is a convenient half bath and a private master suite featuring a kingsize four-poster bed with a very comfortable memory foam mattress, 32 inch TV with a DVD player, a huge two-person whirlpool jetted tub and a large bathroom with a double vanity, separate glass-enclosed shower, and a large lighted closet with mirrored sliding doors.

Upstairs from the main level is an indoor balcony with a comfortable chaise lounge and tremendous views of the majestic mountains and twinkling city lights. This area is perfect for enjoying the latest best seller! The private upper-level master suite features a white pine wood, high-vaulted ceiling in both the bedroom and bath, double vanities, an extra-long whirlpool jetted tub/shower combo, and wall-mounted hair dryer. The suite also features a kingsize bed with a firm mattress, plenty of drawer and closet space, a 32 inch TV & DVD player.

Downstairs from the main level you will find the lower-level greatroom/gameroom featuring extremely comfortable leather, reclining, theater seating for six (including built-in cupholders) a large 50 inch HD TV with DVD player, another stacked stone, ventless gas, remote-controlled fireplace, a pool table, a wet bar with mini-fridge, stereo, plenty of comfortable barstools, and those wonderful mountain vistas seen through a wall of large windows.

                  This chalet cabin is located a few minutes from: The Great Smoky Mountains National Park (with it's scenic mountain streams, hiking trails, picnic areas, wildlife viewing, waterfalls, old mills, old homesteads, scenic motor trails, and more). Each year on the New Year's Eve and on the 4th of July there are parties in the streets of downtown Gatlinburg followed by impressive fireworks displays. You can watch the fireworks from one of the greatrooms or decks at ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS. The Space Needle is the launching pad for the fireworks display.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We are a family of life long Tennesseans that love our state and especially the Great Smoky Mountains. When we were looking for the perfect vacation home (had to have a great view of course!) we fell in love with ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS the first time we saw it. It completely fulfilled our dreams of a fantastic vacation home in the mountains. One of the most important assets was actually the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tram passing overhead. We enjoyed the children smiling and waving from the tram as it came up the mountain and suddenly realized we'd never have to worry about losing our view of the mountains with the tram lines over our back yard! We and many other families have made wonderful memories in this chalet. One of our favorites is when a mama bear and her four cubs came to visit! ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS is all about making your vacation an outstanding memorable lifetime event. There is a peacefulness that overcomes you when you look out over the deck and see one of God's greatest masterpieces. We hope you come and enjoy our beautiful chalet. After many disappointments with management companies we decided to manage our vacation home ourselves with the help of a very respected, reputable VRBO cleaning and maintenance company. By doing this it allows us to offer our home to our guests at a great price and without every kind of 'fee' a management company can come up with. Hope to see you soon!

                  Why the Owner Chose Chalet Village:
                  Chalet village is the most beautiful area of Gatlinburg with it's tremendous views, great amenities, excellent roads, close proximity to downtown as well as to the main entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We have also noticed they blade and salt the streets of Chalet Village each morning when it snows. We love walking the Gatlinburg strip, with all the little shops, entertainment venues, restaurants, candy makers, arcades, eateries, etc. etc. as well as walking along the river downtown and feeding the ducks. There are many great trails, for those of us who love to go for a walk in the forest, located just inside the entrance of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. One of our favorites is the easy two mile scenic walking trail beginning at the park entrance following along beside the scenic river, across the bridge, past the old homestead ruins, past the old cemetery (too many died too young back then), to the sugarland visitor center. We also like riding the aerial tram up the mountain to the ski resort and amusement park and watching the ice skaters and snowboarders. The Scenic Roaring Forks Motor Trail and Cade's Cove are also great for those of us who like driving through the ancient forests and exploring some of the old homesteads and nature. Meanwhile, nearby Pigeon Forge has Dollywood, numerous live performance theaters with great Vegas-quality comedy shows and tons of other fabulous attractions and shopping. There is so much to do and so many places to explore in the Gatlinburg area, we can't think of another place on earth where we would rather have a vacation home. We hope you will enjoy it here as much as we do and come back year after year like we and many of our other rental guests do.

                  We looked at hundreds of cabins and chalets searching for the perfect combination: Fabulous 180 degree year-round mountain and city views, No worries about the views degrading due to tree growth, Walls of large glass windows to enjoy those great views, Easy to drive to without traversing dangerous, narrow, or excessively steep mountain roads, Flat, wide, concrete parking area at road level, No stairways to get to the front door, History of non-smoking and no pets allowed, Spacious open and covered outside decks with great views, Big rooms, spacious greatrooms, excellent design, Large private bedroom suites with large private baths, Each suite has it's own oversized jetted whirlpool tub, Full size billiards table with plenty of space, large hot tub, Multiple massive stacked-stone remote-controlled gas fireplaces, Plenty of space for giant tvs and comfortable seating Upscale kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities & fixtures, Plenty of lighting, mirrors, ceiling fans, and a well installed, state-of-the-art alarm system, High quality construction materials & workmanship, High speed broadband and cable tv service, Excellent cellphone and smartphone data reception, Excellent privacy from any nearby cabins and chalets, The added novelty of the ober gatlinburg aerial tram passing closely overhead. Our grandkids love to go out on the upper deck and wave to the tram passengers (we do too) as it passes quickly over the chalet. Each morning you'll notice a couple of guys standing on top of the tram as they closely inspect the cables and towers. We love it here and hope you will too. Many rental guests returned to ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS year after year when we had it with the rental companies. Hopefully, after experiencing this chalet-style cabin, you too will want to come back for a visit year after year. Please contact us if you have any questions.
