About Our Location: Spend pleasant spring, summer, and fall days on our large, shaded, wrap-around porch reading, resting, or meditating while listening to the sounds of nature. For sore muscles or tired feet, our very private 8 person hot tub offers great therapy under the stars; or you can enjoy the solitude and privacy of the whirlpool tub in the guest house bath.
During your drive up the mountain to the chalet, and from our porch and chalet once you arrive, expect to see deer, wild turkeys, an occasional bear, and numerous squirrels, birds, and other assorted mountain critters. The only thing that isn't wild is the living. Come often, every season is a different adventure at Renegade Golf Chalet.

About John Peters
John and Melanie Peters are the happy owners of the Renegade Golf Chalet along with Melanie's sister Suzanne Moore. We reside in Decatur, Al, but we love the time we spend at our chalet. We have just finished an extensive and exhausting renovation of the property and we look forward to sharing it with our rental guests.
John Peters purchased this Chalet in 2009
Why John Peters chose Crab Orchard
We chose to buy on Renegade Mountain because of the secluded, but secure nature of the mountain location (elevation 2550 ft)in a gated community. The presence of the Renegade Golf Course at the top of our mountain and the close proximity to Fairfield Glade and many other golf courses and state parks also played an important factor in our choice of properties. Even though our Chalet is in Crab orchard, we are members of Fairfield Glade and our guests can enjoy all the benefits as Fairfield Glade guests, including special golf rates.
What makes this Chalet unique
We enjoy the feeling of total isolation in our chalet, even though it is close to many golf courses, restaurants, shopping, and state parks. Day trips to Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg are also a great way to spend our leisure time.

Have you heard that you should never judge a book by its cover? The same wise advice pertains to this charming chalet! The pictures do not do it justice! The home is spacious, has plenty of eating and sleeping space and all of the amenities needed. We stay somewhere twice a year and this chalet was the best stocked property we've ever stayed in! The beds are comfortable, the fireplace is cozy and inviting and the deck and fire pit area are well furnished. The mountain itself is very pretty with plenty of scenic trails to walk! The property owners were easy to contact and extremely helpful. We will most definitely stay here again! Kristi P.
Beautiful place to stay
There is pale by of sleeping space with comfortable beds and good linens. The furniture in the living space is a bit uncomfortable, but that is the only negative. We went in the early spring. The fireplaces kept us plenty warm. The separate quarters would be perfect for those needing some degradation from the group. We will definitely stay again. Location is great with easy access
Very cozy, clean, nicely decorated interior and nice location.

Had a fantastic time at the chalet. The whole family enjoyed our stay! John was a pleasure to deal with.
Cozy and quaint 3 1/2 stars
The cozy chalet was neat and overall clean. The beds were comfy and the bedrooms upstairs are really cute. The extra master bedroom separated from the house is beautiful. The large bedroom in the Chalet is small but comfy. The jacuzzi was great...no need to bring towels they have large ones for the jacuzzi in the laundry room...we all enjoyed it. You will need to bring your own soap as the soap provided is teeny tiny. It also helped that they allow pets. This was a last minute getaway & felt it was a bit pricy for what it is. The area is beautiful but isolated if that's what your looking for. The backyard has a firepit and table but some chairs near the fire would have made it perfect. Inside the coffee table there are tons of pamphlet on activities 30 minutes to an hour away. Nearby hikes are everywhere and they are gorgeous! Overall it was a good experience for our two families.
I'm not sure I understand 3 1/2 stars for a review where the guest liked everything but the size of the soap we provide. We supply small facial bars and larger bath bars for our guests. Full sized bars of soap make very little sense when our guests stay an average of 2-3 days and then we would throw away the remaining full bar of soap.
The chalet is priced according to the value and amenities we offer and this is one of the few guests to complain about price in 7 years of renting. If you are looking for cheap, please book a local motel. If you want a nice place to spread out with your family and enjoy a hot tub and fire pit (not normally found at our local motels) and a great hiking area the minute you step out the door, we offer a great venue at a fair price.
Great experience for a family weekend!
Both the main house and master suite were extremely clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen was well equipped, much better than average for a vacation home. The location is convenient to the Nashville area, quiet and secluded, and I was pleasantly surprised to find good Verizon cell signal and fast internet.
Our stay with 5 adults was very enjoyable, and I would definitely rent this house again.
Renegade Golf Chalet is located in close driving distance of a number of fine wineries, most of which provide free samples to those knowledgeable of the culture of wines. If you sample very many new wines, you might need a designated driver to get you back up the curvy Renegade Mountain Parkway to the chalet.
