It is fun to cook in this kitchen!

Whether stargazing, working on your tan, enjoying the view, grilling or chilling, you'll love it here!

About Darryl and Deanna

Absolutely Breathless LLC: We love the Great Smoky Mountains. When we were looking for the perfect vacation home (it must have a great view of course!) we fell in love with ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS the first time we saw it. It completely fulfilled our dreams of a fantastic vacation home in the mountains. One of the most important assets was actually the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tram passing overhead. We enjoyed the children smiling and waving from the tram as it came up the mountain and suddenly realized we'd never have to worry about losing our view of the mountains with the tram lines over our back yard! We and many other families have made wonderful memories in this chalet. One of our favorites is when a mama bear and her four cubs came to visit and her cubs playing in the backyard below the decks! ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS is all about making your vacation an outstanding memorable lifetime event. There is a peacefulness that overcomes you when you look out over the deck and see one of God's greatest masterpieces. We hope you come and enjoy our beautiful chalet. After many disappointments with management companies we decided to manage our vacation home ourselves with the help of a very respected, reputable VRBO cleaning and maintenance company. By doing this it allows us to offer our home to our guests at a great price and without every kind of 'fee' a management company can come up with. Hope you get a chance to experience it soon!

Darryl and Deanna purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Darryl and Deanna chose Chalet Village

Chalet village is the most beautiful area of Gatlinburg with it's tremendous views, great amenities, excellent roads, close proximity to downtown as well as to the main entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We have also noticed they blade and salt the streets of Chalet Village each morning when it snows.

Thankfully our area of Gatlinburg was unaffected by the wildfires in November 2016.

We love walking the Gatlinburg strip, with all the little shops, entertainment venues, restaurants, candy makers, arcades, eateries, etc. etc. as well as walking along the river downtown and feeding the ducks.

There are many great trails, for those of us who love to go for a walk in the forest, located just inside the entrance of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. One of our favorites is the easy two mile scenic walking trail beginning at the park entrance following along beside the scenic river, across the bridge, past the old homestead ruins, past the old cemetery (too many died too young back then), to the sugarland visitor center.

We also like riding the aerial tram up the mountain to the ski resort and amusement park and watching the ice skaters and snowboarders.

The Scenic Roaring Forks Motor Trail and Cade's Cove are also great for those of us who like driving through the ancient forests and exploring some of the old homesteads and nature.

Meanwhile, nearby Pigeon Forge has Dollywood, numerous live performance theaters with great Vegas-quality comedy shows and tons of other fabulous attractions and shopping.

There is so much to do and so many places to explore in the Gatlinburg area, we can't think of another place on earth where we would rather have a vacation home. We hope you will enjoy it here as much as we do and come back year after year like we and many of our other rental guests do.

High quality construction materials & workmanship,

High speed broadband and cable tv service,

Excellent cellphone and smartphone data reception,

Excellent privacy from any nearby cabins and chalets,

The added novelty of the ober gatlinburg aerial tram passing closely overhead. Our grandkids love to go out on the upper deck and wave to the tram passengers (we do too) as it passes quickly over the chalet.

We love it here and hope you will too. Many rental guests return to ABSOLUTELY BREATHLESS year after year. Hopefully, after experiencing this chalet-style cabin, you too will want to come back for a visit year after year.

We strive to always provide our guests an exceptionally clean and well-organized cabin. While many rental companies use cameras with fish-eye lens to make rooms appear larger than they truly are, our little camera makes our chalet's rooms look smaller than they really are. Sorry about that! Someday we hope to find a camera which will show the rooms and the magnificent views as they truly are - totally awesome!!!

Great location with lots of room and views.

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice stay. The location is good with beautiful views of the mountains. Had to call the property management company to get one of the TV's working and they responded quickly. I would certainly stay there again.

Breathtaking view and comfortable stay in a beautiful chalet

  • 5 of 5

So happy to have stayed in this beautiful mountain chalet with five friends. The chalet is very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed Gatlinburg and the park where we saw an elk. A visit from mama bear and her two cubs was a highlight of our stay. The drive up and down the mountain was a little scary when you are not used to mountain drives, but the view and accommodations are so worth the drive!!

A must stay when in Gatlinburg

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on a road trip home from Minnesota to Florida. We have a stayed in a few other cabins in the area and this was by far the best experience ever. The cabin is beautiful and clean and very very spacious for our family of four. My two kids loved the fact that they each had their own master bedroom with in room jacuzzi tubs. The best part of the cabin of course is the views. We loved sitting on the back porch in the morning drinking some coffee and then again at night once the kids went to bed. The views are spectacular.

One morning we work up to find a black bear in our driveway. We watched from behind the locked front porch as he made away across the drive to check out our car and then head on down the road. Very cool.

We spent our time in the area walking around Gatlinburg, which, is just a short 9 minute drive down the mountain. We enjoyed the shops, the people and the food. We also headed to Dollywood and Splash Country, which is a must if you have kids.

Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your home in the mountains. Next time I am back in Gatlinburg I am staying here again. This was by far, our best trip ever!
