About Melissa Brodersen

We are committed to ensure our property will meet your particular needs and expectations before we will rent to you. Many chalet/cabin rental companies will rent to you just to get the rental and then you are disappointed with what you get. We would rather advise you that our chalet will not meet your needs than to have you be disappointed. Try us and see.

Melissa Brodersen purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Melissa Brodersen chose Gatlinburg

We rented this chalet on our first visit to Gatlinburg and fell in love with it and the mountain and national park surroundings. Upon checkout we asked if they would notify us if it ever came on the market for sale and as it turned out the chalet management company owners owned this particular property and had been thinking about selling some of their smaller chalets so they could build a 8 bedroom. We struck a deal. We hope you will like it as much as we did.

What makes this chalet unique

The fresh mountain air, the beautiful view, serenity. There is also the occasional viewing of the local wildlife, even a bear or bear family passing by. We recommend getting up early and sitting out on the deck when the air is cool and crisp. It is also convenient to all the other activities offered in Downtown Gatlinburg and nearby Pigeon Forge. Teenagers will love going to Dollywood and Splash Country not to mention the great shopping at the outlet malls. Being able to have your small pet/pets with you is beneficial to both your pets and you, also eliminates high boarding fees and separation anxiety experienced by your pet while being boarded. Because the chalet sits on the side of the mountain there is a fairly steep driveway leading up to it. The drive to the top is worth it. Please note that the City of Gatlinburg recommends access to Ski Mountain Road for four wheel drive vehicles or vehicles with chains when there is ice or snow on the road. The city trys to keep the road open for access to Ober Gatlinburg. Watch out for the bears. There is not any warning and they will show up at any time. Do not let your pets or children run loose for their protection. Do not leave any food outside.

My husband & I stayed at Black Bear Crossing for a much needed mini-vacation. The owners answered all emails quickly. This chalet is lovely & very comfortable. The picures do not do it justice! It is located near enough to the main strip to get to everything quickly, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Will definitely check to see if it is available the next time we travel to the Great Smoky Mountains!

Definitely a "home away from home"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited for our 4-year anniversary. We wanted quiet and peaceful, and that is exactly what we got! Upon entering, we immediately felt at home. There were plenty of dishes, glasses, coffee mugs, utensils, pots and pans, and linens for our stay. Even though the leaves were still full on the trees, we had an amazing view from the master bedroom. (I actually left those blinds open the entire time.) Between the hot tub, darts, pool table, and Ms. Pacman; there were plenty of activities--not to mention the TVs with cable. (My husband got to "enjoy" the GA vs TN game on Saturday--LOL, he's a GA fan.) The property owners are very prompt about responding to emails and phone calls. This property is only 3 miles from town--a 10 minute drive due to the curvy roads, so it is very convenient, yet private. The driveway was no issue for our little Ford Focus. I was extremely happy here, and it made me anxious to visit the mountains again......and this is coming from a person who has always picked the beach over the mountains! Thank you, Donald and Melissa for opening your home to guest and making sure your guests are comfortable as they are at home!

Cabin Lives Up To Its Name

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed numerous times at this chalet and never have been disappointed. The owners are very easy to work with and respond to emails in a quick period of time. This trip we had three bears visit us at the chalet. One came right up on the porch to the door to check things out. We also had paw prints on our car where it looked like they tried to get in the car. But we followed the warnings and kept our doors locked and made sure there was no food inside. There was no damage to the car. I have read a lot of the other reviews regarding the driveway at the chalet. For someone that has stayed numerous times at this chalet the driveway is not that bad. Granted I do have a SUV but don't see any issue if I have a sedan going up it. Now if you have a Miata or some vehicle that sits real low to the ground then it might be a challenge. If you can make it up the mountain roads to get to the chalet then you can make it up the driveway. One bit of advice to help is when you hit the driveway from the road stay on the gas and do not let off, even going around the corner. It makes it a lot easier then stopping and having to try and restart again. Do not let the driveway deter you. We look forward to future visits at this chalet. Thanks.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is just as nice as it looks in the pictures and the owners are very quick to respond if you have any questions or concerns. Our security deposit was refunded very quickly and without a hassle. We saw 2 bears during our stay and one of them tried opening the cars doors at night! Fortunately the car was locked with no food inside. Definitely heed the warnings about food and the bears. The only concern we had was the steep driveway. We didn't want to take any chances with the rental car so we parked on the lower level and walked up.

Car: necessary

Just moments from Ober Gatlinburg ski area, Dollywood and Splash Country theme parks in nearby Pigeon Forge. Restaurants, dinner shows, shopping all nearby. The Aquarium in downtown Gatlinburg is wonderful!!! Roaring Forks Motor Trail is just beautiful to drive thru or for hiking. The best time to drive thru is just after it rains. Traffic Light 8 will take you right into the trail and the National Park. Mynatt Park is also at Traffic Light 8 and is the city park. This is a perfect spot for walking, a picnic, photographic moments, tennis, playground, ballpark, etc. Mynatt Park is the old Methodist church camp and has historic cabins located in the park. The village at downtown Gatlinburg is just beautiful and has unique shops and the setting is very picturesque.
