Journey through the winding mountain roads that lead up to it, the steep driveway and spectacular views from the living room and dining room, hot tub on the front deck overlooking the National Park. We're close to both Gatlinburg and PIgeon Forge where there is an abundance of shopping and fun. This place is beautiful and very special to us.

About Pat Marks

Well we're back. Our beloved original Love Nest was burned in the devastating fires in November 2016 so William and I decided to build back. We hope you enjoy our place as much as we do.

Pat Marks purchased this chalet in 2000

Why Pat Marks chose Chalet Village

We came to the Gatlinburg area on our honeymoon in 1992 and fell in love with it. We stayed in a chalet at that time and decided then that someday we wanted to own one of our own. So we were able to buy the Love Nest in 2000. We also always wanted a property that had a view and this one just appealed to us.

What makes this chalet unique

One of the most unique features in this house is the hot tub on the deck. The hot tub seats 4 people easily in the quietness of the secluded surroundings. It is so peaceful inside and out. We love the views.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place was great. Everything new and what a view. Everything was comfortable and clean and we look forward to staying here again.

Wonderful relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

The home was a wonderful inviting place to come home too for the family. We had a great time staying there. The best part was soaking our body in the hot tub under the cold winter sky. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were accommodating for the size of our group. The kids enjoyed roasting marshmallows on the firepit. My only negative for the home would be the super steep driveway and sharp entrance into the home, but it's common for the area. Overall all A++++, our family will look to book here again in the future.

Wonderful cabin with such a awesome view. The leaves were beautiful. This brand new cabin was delightfully furnished and decorated. Loved the log beds. The hot tub was very relaxing especially in the cold air. Would definitely rent this cabin again.!

We have Stayed at the Love nest the last 2 years and have already planned our trip for June 2017. Just found out the Chalet has been destroyed in the Fires. This Saddens my Family and I. We hope Pat can rebuild and we will continue to support her and her family. We have plenty of pics and memories of the old chalet and are making room in our scrap book for the new memories.

We are just minutes away from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and conveniently located between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We are close to restaurants, shopping or just doing nothing. The trolly picks up at the bottom of the mountain from our cabin with places to park at the Gatlinburg Welcome Center and just jump on and ride into Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. The Love Nest is a secluded Chalet for your privacy with the hot tub on the deck. Romance, anniversary or family vacations are perfect here. A must see for this area is the Smoky Mountain National Park, Cades Cove and for the younger set all the activities in Pigeon Forge such as amusement parks.
