About Thelma Bundren
Hello, I am Thelma, Mother of 4 wonderful children and Nana of 7 awesome grandchildren. Most of all, I love spending time with them. I grew up in Tazewell, TN which is only 2 hours from Gatlinburg. I was a teacher for 36 years until June, 2014 when I officially retired. I currently live at Windy Oaks condos and I want to spend more time taking care of my condos and meeting all the new people who spend their vacation in one of my condos.
Thelma Bundren purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Thelma Bundren chose Gatlinburg
Most of my life I have spent time coming to Gatlinburg to the parades, craft shows, Dollywood, and traveling through the beautiful Smoky Mountains. My children and I were spending spring break here and I saw a condo for sale at Windy Oaks and fell in love with the complex when I came to look at it. I wanted a place we could come to on weekends and vacations. In the fall of 2000, I came here to live. I am proud to own condos here and live here full time.
What makes this Condo unique
I fell in love the first time I walked on the balcony and looked at the view. It is close to downtown Gatlinburg but away from the hustle and bustle. A few of the owners live here and others only use their condo for a second home. Some of us have condos that we rent by owner. Windy Oaks is more of a home than a rental property. It is a quiet place to come home to after a day of shopping, going to Dollywood or hiking in the mountains. You can take a dip in the pool or spend some quiet time on the balcony with a good book and enjoying the view.

Vrbo Bear Stay review
Wonderful Christmas Vacation!!!
Loved every minute being there. Property owner had condo decorated for Christmas, even put up a small tree for us with lights and decorations. Felt like we were at one of our parents house with no parents. Just had that very at home Christmas feeling. The view is incredible, it’s amazing. Thank you for such a great place to stay.
I am so glad you enjoyed your Christmas time with your family. It was a pleasure decorating for you. Hope you have a wonderful New Year.
this condo was very homey and comfortable we felt right at home, good location could walk to maine strip
I always want my guests to feel at home in my condo. I am so glad you enjoyed your vacation in Gatlinburg.
Thank you very much.
The condo was great except that the upstairs neighbors were very noisy. They had a dog that barked a lot and apparently ran across the floor constantly. Other than that we had a great stay!
I am so sorry about the dog. This was the daughter of the owner, who only comes twice a year. Pets are not allowed at Windy Oaks. When I saw the dog, they had to leave. I am glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise.
Excellent family retreat near the Smokies
I worked/lived near the Smokies for a few years and stayed in many hotels around Gatlinburg area. This is the first time that I rent a condo/apartment. The 2-bedroom was well maintained, clean, warm, and cozy for a family retreat. Check-in and check-out was very smooth. Location-wise, it needs a bit walking to downtown Gatlinburg (about 10 minutes) but it is super close to Roaring Fork nature trail, which is gorgeous in the fall. Overall, very good experience and will definitely come back again!
Thank you for coming to my condo. It was very nice to meet your family. I look forward to your next visit.
