About the property

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Great location, very affordable and tastefully decorated 2 bedroom (each with queen size bed plus queen size sleeper sofa), 1 1/2 bath Gatlinburg chalet located just 4 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg/Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Free wi-fi. 15 minute drive to action-packed Pigeon Forge. Very clean and private with all the comforts of home. Chalet offers 5 person hot tub/whirlpool and air hockey table.

Lover's Loft chalet is close enough to enjoy all that Gatlinburg has to offer yet far enough away to enjoy the solitude and serenity of the mountains. Our guests come to Lover's Loft to celebrate their honeymoon and return for their wedding anniversary and eventually to bring their own children. We hope your family makes wonderful memories of the Smokies as we have. This is our home away from home.

This chalet is perfect for honeymoons, family vacations, anniversaries or even as a unique gift idea. (Gift certificates available.)

RENTER TESTIMONIALS:

'Lover's Loft is so roomy, well maintained and so close to the things we like to do.' Renters from OH

'We have been to the Smokies numerous times and have stayed at various hotels and cabins. Given the value, location and ammenities - your's is the best!' Renters from SC

'We feel right at home here. It's close enough to everything that we don't have to spend our whole trip driving from place to place. But, it's far enough away from all the cars and noise that we can have a quiet, peaceful time together after a busy day of shopping and attractions.' Renters from MI

'This chalet is perfect just the way it is. It is cheaper than most hotels with much more amenities. You couldn't ask for more!' Renters from TN

'Like most everyone else we were skeptical about renting on the internet...we have heard horror stories. When we arrived we were very pleased...the chalet is very clean and it felt homey.' Renters from AL

'This was a beautiful cabin and such a cozy place to get away to.' Renters from FL

About Jim and Cathy Janszen

We are a family of four from Cincinnati, Ohio. We fell in love with the Smokies many years ago and love going to the chalet any chance we can get. We love all the seasons the Smokies have to offer.

Jim and Cathy Janszen purchased this chalet in 1994

Why Jim and Cathy Janszen chose Gatlinburg

We chose to buy in Gatlinburg because we love to hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our chalet is just 4 minutes from the National Park/ downtown Gatlinburg. Our kids each took their first hike in the Smokies when they were just 2 months old. Gatlinburg is such a family place and we have enjoyed numerous vacations with our children.

What makes this chalet unique

We are close to everything!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello all,

Just wanted to address the hot tub. I sent a repairman to the chalet and it turns out the hot tub was just set to "whirlpool" mode. That's why only 1 jet was working. As a matter of fact, ALL jets work and ALWAYS DID it just needed the simple turn of a switch. I just wasn't aware of this. Just wanted to get this matter cleared up to our potential renters.



Thank You!!

We had the best stay! Close to town and market that delivers! The owners were such a pleasure to communicate with! The fireplace and hot tub were so cozy on a chilly evening! I have found our home away from home!

Perfect Location, Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect size for our family of 4 and the location was great. It was very easy to get to the National Park and it was also close to attractions in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. It had everything we needed. Thanks so much for a beautiful and fun Fall Break!

Very clean and comfortable and has all the amenities you need for an enjoyable stay.

  • 5 of 5

The sofa is a little hard to get off of and if you lose your phone, look down the sides of the sofa. Otherwise everything worked fine. Great place and will recommend it to friends.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3-day weekend stay in Gatlinburg. The first thing we all noticed when we got to the house was how clean everything was. We made ourselves right at home.

The hot tub was great, my 7 year old couldn't stay away from the air hockey table, we made good use of the grill and even had a bear come visit us.

I would highly recommend this rental with no hesitation.

We spent two nights at the cabin. My kids loved the air hockey table! The hot tub was clean and refreshing. The cabin is an older cabin but very well kept.
