Overview

About the property

7 Bedrooms, 8 Baths, Sleeps 20

Smoky Mountain Memories is the former residence of the founders of Mountain Laurel Chalets, Ralph and Dorothy Egli. The house has been painstakingly transformed into a retreat that honors their continuing legacy and provides the finest in vacation living. As one of the first homes on Ski Mountain, the Egli's were blessed to secure a sizable piece of property that offers a sprawling side yard with fire pit and hot tub, nature trail and cozy woods. The upper level of the lot offers magnificent views of Mountain LeConte from a large party deck with plenty of rocking chairs and a gas grill nearby, plus an occasional bear sighting. Every member of the family will enjoy this vacation estate with a quaint play house and tree fort.

Upon entering, you immediately feel as if you’ve returned home. The entry hall and sitting area set the mood for relaxation and peace. The open, airy kitchen attracts the culinary artists in your group who will love the sub-zero refrigerator, double ovens and warming drawer. The wood-burning fireplace adjacent to the kitchen invites those who desire conversation with the cooks, while not being underfoot. A few more steps takes you into the wood-lined sun room with a wall of windows that frame the beauty of the mountains. Five Bedrooms on the main level offer King sized beds, private baths and a flat screen television. The end bedroom also has one set of twin bunk beds for the little ones. Each King bedroom has a large screen Smart TV where you can access Netflix (with your account) and other on-line services, connected to the homes robust wifi.

The fun starts when you venture downstairs. A theatre room with 80” smart TV and 14 leather recliners takes movie night to a new level--or catch the latest ball game with the whole family. If billiards are your thing, hop on into the game room and rack ‘em up! Don’t worry about missing your favorite show because there is another 50” TV, plus a wood-burning fireplace to boot and foosball. Tired from all that excitement? The downstairs sun room/reading room provides yet another opportunity to sit and relax while watching TV or looking for wildlife outside the picture windows that line the wall. Two more king bedrooms downstairs, each with a private bath and television, make up the seven bedrooms, but there are a bonus set of bunk beds in the large bedroom that bring the total the house can sleep to 20. When you stay at Smoky Mountain Memories or any of our properties during the summer months you will receive a pass to enjoy 2 pools located here on the mountainside.

This chalet is NON- SMOKING.

The Egli’s and their three children spent many happy years living, learning and serving in their home and they are pleased to now offer the same to you and your family. The solitude of their home will be a blessing to you. Expertly decorated and furnished, this home has been renovated from floor to ceiling and your whole family will be sure to take home with them Smoky Mountain Memories that will last a lifetime.

Has the best view of the Smokies. Have stayed here the last couple of years, and all our family love it and always want to stay here. Mountain Laurel personnel have always been responsive to all our concerns and we have already booked wth them for next year.

Great house, very comfortable beds and bedding. Kitchen very well stocked and appropriate dishes and silverward. Two toasters for big parties. The dishwasher feels like it is about to tip over and needs to be fixed. Service was wonderfully responsive.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is amazing with all equipped kitchen and utensils. Bathrooms are very clean and fully stocked with towels and soaps. Outdoor sitting chairs were the best as we spent major time chatting on backyard patio which accommodate all our friends easily. BEWARE of BEARS at night. At every night they come for food in backyard patio. Overall amazing get together. Most importantly property is very near to main market downtown Gatlinburg so easy for food and breakfast or a cup of coffee.
