I fell in love with the Smoky Mountains since the first time I set eyes on them. Vered and I came down to Gatlinburg for some R&R and next thing you know we bought a chalet to eventually retire in. We fixed it to our liking and now family, friends and YOU are able to enjoy relaxing and a great adventure…hence the name “Secondhand Lions” (a movie we have features in our video library)! Conveniently located just a few short minutes to downtown Gatlinburg, top of Ski Mountain (Ober Gatlinburg), quiet walkways and, of course, the Great Smoky Mountain park entrance where the adventure really begins.
“Secondhand Lions” …Tranquil setting with all the comforts of home! The great room is decorated in Native American art that I collected over the years. We displayed it for all to enjoy. The bedrooms are equipped with a pair of Jacuzzi Hydro Message Tubs for that deep relaxation.
Surrounded by trees and wildlife make this a very relaxing and comfortable stay. Please take a photo of your stay and send me. I’ll display the best photo of the month and choose the best photo of the year to give a free night too.
Special weekly rates and off-season rates…call or email to find out. Enjoy in season Owners Club facilities (choice of 3 on the mountain). If you are a ski fanatic let us know and we’ll put a package together for you during the ski season.
Thank you for choosing our “great mountain getaway”!

About Dave Lyons
Vered and I are two souls that love the outdoors. We climb mountains and hike all over the nation and internationally. We have climbed Mt. Rainier, Mt. Washington and Mesada in Israel. We're always looking for an adventure!
Dave Lyons purchased this Chalet in 2012
Why Dave Lyons chose Gatlinburg
We were in Gatlinburg just passively looking at properties. We came across the one here at 991 Stans Road and fell in love with the potential. We refurbished it but still have big plans...for instance a waterfall with hot tub on the edge near the big windows. We want this to be our oasis because we love the area...it's like living a vacation!
What makes this Chalet unique
'Secondhand Lions' is uniquely positioned. It is close to just about everything...not far up the mountain....just right! It's cozy but very spacious...very relaxing while viewing nature out of all those windows.

The perfect getaway
The perfect little chalet to get away from reality for the weekend.
Great place. Will definately be back one day.
We loved the place and had so much fun on my birthday weekend. Everything was nice and clean and exactly as desribed. Just a few minor issues but over all we really enjoyed it and we definately would come back.
We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. The drive to downtown is just a few minutes, and the cabin is quiet - exactly what we wanted! The driveway is a little steep, and following the owners directions is best for getting there. There’s not really a yard for dogs to go out to potty, the only thing that made it a little rough, but overall we would definitely stay here again, even with the dog! The bedrooms are lovely and roomy and the jacuzzi tubs are great also! You can’t go wrong renting this place!! Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend!
Simple cabin, but perfect for a couple's weekend. The location was great...easy to get to Gatlinburg and to the national park. We would definitely stay again; Dave was very helpful and pretty in getting back to us when we needed him.
Very clean and enjoyable
A nice secluded well decorated cabin tucked away in the mountains. Had a wonderful stay, would definitely book it again!
Owner great to work with!
Dave was great to work with - quick to respond to our emails and calls. Appreciated all the extra information he provided as well. We enjoyed our time in the Smokies!
Property is located just off Ski Mountain Road. When you turn left onto Stans Road it's the first driveway on the right. Just a few short minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and to the top of the mountain at Ober Gatlinburg just up Ski Mountain Road.
