About Jay Welborn

Jay is a retired Air Force officer and currently works as a contractor at Shaw AFB, SC. Jay went to Architecture school at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville where he and Susan fell in love with the Smoky Mountains area during weekend getaways. Susan owns a home daycare center and has provided childcare all over the world as the Air Force moved us from place to place to include Japan, Germany, and a myriad of stateside assignments. We have five children and the cabin has provided a wonderful place for our family gatherings.

Jay Welborn purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jay Welborn chose Chalet Village

We bought this cabin because it was so close to Gatlinburg and it was nestled in the woods just the way we wanted. Zero steps to main level, easy access drive, and plenty of parking. Winter mountain views and seeing the Ober Gatlinburg Tram is really cool. We've spent the last couple years remodeling and putting our special touch on the place. We've already had lots of memorable outings with friends and family in our home away from home.

What makes this cabin unique

Plenty of space for a family get together! We know you'll enjoy our little cabin in the woods.

We had a wonderful time staying at the cabin/house.

  • 5 of 5

Although we were only there to sleep the place had plenty of games and movies for everyone. Everyone of the rooms had TVs in them. The place was furnished just like your home would be. Definitely recommend this for anyone considering going to the mountains. It’s close to the downtown strip as well. We had left something very important at the home and the owners were super nice and arranged for us to get it back. Thanks a million guys. We had a blast.

Perfect location, absolutely recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter requested a weekend in Gatlinburg with her friends as her sweet sixteen party. We were able to accommodate the four of them in one room while providing private rooms for my husband and I and our adult daughter and her friend. The game room made a wonderful gathering place and the hot tub a relaxing end to long days. The location was very convenient while being off the main drag. We would recommend staying here wholeheartedly. Thank you for making her 16th birthday a great experience for the whole family!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Echo Place! It was so nice to put our girls on a level with a bathroom, our boy on a level with a bathroom, and we were tucked away on our level with a bathroom! The game room was a favorite as well. If we weren't playing something, we were teaching card tricks. The hot tub was great after horse back riding in the rain! The basket of brochures was helpful. We booked a zip line tour that was amazing. Overall we highly recommend staying at Echo Place! We will be back!
