About Keith and Paula Henson
After growing up in the Spartanburg/Greenville area of SC, I married my high school sweetheart and moved to Tennessee. My husband began his career as an electrical engineer and I as an elementary school teacher. We raised our three children (who are all University of Tennessee graduates) and are now enjoying our new role as grandparents! As a retired 1st grade teacher, I was missing the contact I once had with so many wonderful families who touched my life over the years. Our rental chalets have become my new "classroom" and have not only provided me with a new creative outlet, but also with the opportunity to "cross paths" with so many wonderful guests from all over the country and beyond!
Keith and Paula Henson purchased this Chalet in 2013
Why Keith and Paula Henson chose Chalet Village
We have lived in the shadows of the beautiful Smoky Mountains for many years but only recently decided to make Gatlinburg our “home away from home” and purchased two lovely chalets near the summit of Ski Mountain. We discovered that Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park have so much to offer our family. If it was peace and quiet surrounded by the beauty and wildlife of the park, hiking the many beautiful trails in the park, the excitement of shopping and sightseeing in the unique little town of Gatlinburg, or perhaps the thrill of the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort and Amusement Park we were looking for we found it here. Gatlinburg has much to offer everyone in our family!
What makes this Chalet unique
We quickly decided that the Chalet Village community on Ski Mountain was the place for us with its unique Bavarian flair and quaint chalets scattered across the mountainside! Of even greater importance was the close proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our front door is located less than twenty steps from the park boundary and is within walking distance to one of the many beautiful trails open to visitors of the park. We immediately fell in love with the beautiful views especially when the Ober Gatlinburg tram passed by with screams of excitement as passengers topped the highest tower! In the other direction through the national park forest we can view the three distinct towering peaks of Mt. LeConte! We truly have a panoramic view! We enjoy the abundance of wildlife that is literally in our backyard and often delight in seeing mother bear and cubs passing through on their daily rounds to and from the park. There was never a doubt in our minds that this was the perfect getaway location! We also take pride in knowing that our guests receive the ultimate in hospitality! We personally prepare for our guests' arrival and add all of the personal touches to make it a special experience and one that will provide lasting memories!

Beautiful Chalet, Beautiful views
The Chalet was perfect, attractively decorated, loved the privacy, view from the decks, relaxing in the hot tub.
Appreciated all the little signs telling how to use things in the Chalet. Paula had covered everything that a guest would want to know. The wine in the refrigerator was appreciated once we got over the drive up.
However we could not get captioning service on the TV in the living room no matter how hard we tried. I need it otherwise TV is of no use to me.
As for the stove, it could be updated. We did not do any serious cooking, but one of the burners did not work and several of the knobs on the dials would fall off if touched.
One last thing, though it was mentioned that the road up was narrow , steep and winding, I did not enjoy the ride up or down, though my partner who did the driving did not mind except for the fact that it was easy to take a wrong turn due to the signs being misleading. Luckily we had a GPS which kept us from going around and around.
considerate host，well-prepared house， nice trip
Thanks for all things Paula and Keith have done for us：leaving more lights at first night，everyday warm checking and so on. The detailed instructions on the wall and some little gifts were really helpful and sweet. The cabin includes all you need and you wan. Fantastic！Definitely will come back！
We had no complaints at all. Perfect for 2. The owners were extremely supportive and wanted to make sure our stay was perfect. It was very clean comfortable and quiet. I would return and recommend this cabin to others!
Really loved the cabin. Excellent shape and well stocked.
A wonderfully well kept gem nestled away in paradise....
