About Greg Hays
My wife grew up in Knoxville, Tn. with wonderful memories of the Smokies. Once our family moved away from Knoxville, we returned to Gatlinburg as often as possible for family reunions, special holidays and celebrations, and weekends with friends after attending UT ballgames. We always enjoyed the fact that Gatlinburg offered something for every season - hiking in the spring and summer, beautiful fall panoramas in autumn, and skiing at Ober Gatlinburg and Christmas shopping in the winter. We decided to purchase rental property in the Smokies and fell in love with Ski View Lodge as soon as we saw it.
Greg Hays purchased this Lodge in 2005
Why Greg Hays chose Chalet Village
Located in Chalet Village, we knew this lodge would be the perfect setting for young and old alike. With the huge, stone fireplace, Great Room, kitchen, and 4 of the 6 bedrooms on the main level, we knew the layout would be great for people who could not navigate stairs easily. The in-suite bathrooms offered privacy and convenience. 2 Bedrooms downstairs with game systems and pool table provided a place for kids and adults alike.
What makes this Lodge unique
There are wonderful views from every room of this lodge. The front of the lodge offers a view of Mt. LeConte and the back of the lodge is a beautiful wooded view of the Smoky Mountain Nature Preserve. The driveway wraps around the lodge so that guests never have to back out of a driveway and can unload their cars into the lodge from the main level or lower level (No carrying heavy luggage up and down the stairs!) The Great Room is perfect for large groups singing around the fireplace or enjoying a meal together.

It was great. The perfect place to share with your family and still have all the privacy you need
The house was perfect. Every bed had a bath while the dining living and kitchen were all open to allow the time for the family to socialize. It rained on us 4 out of the 7 days we were there and no one complained because we had plenty to do between the hot tub. Pool table and games that were there not to mention the TVs that allowed us to show the babies cartoons. You do need 4 wheel drive or an experienced driver to get up the one hill but we had 6 full size trucks that could park around the house while allowing anyone to leave as they chose to. We were visited by several bears that was the highlight of the stay. None of them were mean but don’t leave any food trash outside unless you put it in the bear proof receptacles. They will investigate it all. I loved the time we spent there and everyone in my family wanted to stay longer we actually met the cleaning person because we just wanted to stay. However with a sad heart and the reality of work life we left but we left with real good times real good accommodations and with a whole lot of pictures. Thank you Greg so much for this stay. Like I said perfect
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! The Chalet is perfect for family reunions! The six bedrooms with en suite bathrooms provide plenty of privacy, while the large great room and downstairs game room provide plenty of time for family activities. We are having a family reunion ourselves this month.
The driveway that circles the entire Chalet and allows for plenty of cars to park without having to back up was one of our first additions to the Chalet when we bought it many years ago. The turbo jet hot tub and updates to the kitchen were our latest improvements. We work hard to make sure that you have everything that you need and that everything is kept as clean and well stocked as possible.
We appreciate your business and hope you will return in the future. Gatlinburg has something wonderful to offer in all four seasons so we hope we see you again soon.
Thanks again for choosing Skiview Lodge!
Perfect family gathering spot!!
Our family came from several different states for a long weekend and this chalet was perfect for us! Each couple had a room with private bath to retreat to, and the kids enjoyed camping out on the sofa bed. The long table was great for playing cards and eating together or just hanging out. My parents enjoyed the porches and scenery while the rest of us sampled all that the area has to offer. The hot tub was wonderful for relaxing in the evenings! Greg was very responsive from booking through checkout and we will absolutely want to stay here again. Book this property - you won't regret it!
We are so glad you enjoyed your family reunion at Ski View Lodge! The six bedrooms with en suite bathrooms provide the privacy you need while the large great room and downstairs game room provide perfect opportunities for family get togethers and interaction. Watching the beauty of nature unfold is so relaxing from the front or back decks. Gatlinburg is beautiful in all four seasons so we hope you will come visit us again and again. We truly appreciate your business!
Great House for Family Vacation
We take a family vacation every other year with our four daughters and their families. Our grandchildren are aged 3 through 12. The house was one of the best we have rented. The kitchen had a huge refrigerator and a very large pantry that easily accommodated food for our five families. There was plenty of counter space and the island allowed us to set out and serve our meals efficiently. There were plenty of cooking utensils and pots and pans. We used both the gas grill for meat and the smaller charcoal grill with the firewood provided to make S'mores. We had plenty of space for sleeping and it is always a big plus when each bedroom has its own bathroom. We did not need to contact the owner for any problems and received our deposit refunded in a very timely manner. The hot tub was enjoyed each evening and made for a fun, relaxing week. Gatlinburg had much to offer and we took advantage of hiking, white water rafting, put-put golf, shopping, and one of our daughters and her family spent a day at Dollywood. There are many opportunities for fun activities very close to the house. We soon got used to the very steep, winding roads leading up to the house and enjoyed the beautiful views it afforded us on the ride. One very surprising word of caution. We were visited from the very first night by black bears coming all the way up to the house - even coming on the deck both in front and back. While very scary at first, we quickly realized they were not threatening and just looking for food. They appeared (one at a time) early in the morning and late in the day. We were hoping to maybe get a glimpse of some when we booked the house, but did not realize how often and close they would come. We had one of our best vacations in Gatlinburg and would very definitely recommend this beautiful house.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Ski View Lodge. It is perfect for family reunions due to the large kitchen, game room, Great room, and kitchen. As you mentioned, there is still plenty of privacy with large groups since all 6 bedrooms have their own private ensuite bathrooms. We are planning our own family reunion there this month!
We are constantly updating the chalet to keep it comfortable, clean, and well stocked with everything you need for cooking large meals together and having fun. The drive can be a little steep, but the view from the Chalet is out of this world and well worth it! With the circular driveway, there is no backing down steep drives and the driveway can easily accommodate 5 or 6 cars.
We appreciate your business and hope you will stay with us again! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review.
Beautiful, well equipped home -- perfect for our family of 14! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
This is an amazing property! You can see the sunrise over the mountain and see the sunset through the trees out the back. Wonderful areas to sit on the massive decks, the hot tub was perfect, and there is plenty of parking for five cars. The kitchen is well equipped with almost anything you could want (you may have to hunt for it -- multiple guests put things away in strange places!), and the table is perfect for up to 12 people so you can all eat together.
We even had visits by local 'teenage' bears several times during our visits (we stayed well away and they were not intimidating). There are several pool options (all driveable), and each bedroom has its own bathroom -- a major plus. It is easy to get to either Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, but like other reviewers stated the last mile or so of roads and the driveway are interesting to say the least. Lots of hills, curves, and little to no shoulder -- but it was only scary the first time!
I HIGHLY recommend this home. And Greg is an amazing host. We got ourselves locked out at one point and he returned my call within five minutes and we were on our way. He was very responsive to my multiple questions in advance, always responding quickly -- usually within one hour.
Note -- if you have small children, please bring a gate or other barrier to the stairs. I learned this from another reviewer and it made our trip much less stressful.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We work hard to make sure that you have all the comforts of home so that you can relax and enjoy your time with family and friends.
The views from the chalet decks are awesome in all 4 seasons so we hope you stay with us again and again. We appreciate your business and are appreciate the kind words.
Lots of bedrooms & bathrooms made it easy for 3 families to stay & all get ready at the same time.
Adequate space & we made good use of the fireplace & hot tub. The upgraded appliances & Tv's exceeded expectations since they have all been upgraded since VRBO photos (ones in photos were quite dated).
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed the upgrades we have added. We have updated the pictures on the VRBO site.
The 6 bedrooms, each with ensuite bathrooms provide plenty of privacy while the great room, decks, game room, and hot tub are great for catching up with family and friends. There are amazing views of the mountains in all 4 seasons so we hope you visit us again!
