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.

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 rented this property for a family get together after Christmas. My children (in their 30's) wanted time with the family instead of presents. Time is a precious commodity these days and we are so glad to have had my parents, sister & her husband, my children and grand children together experiencing this absolutely wonderful chalet. Plenty large enough, very open, stunning views of the ski slope, a game room and a hot tube that was wonderful (so I'm told...LOL) in 14 degree weather. The owner was very good to work with, answered all of our questions in a very prompt manner. The deposit was returned in less than 3 weeks, closer to 2 weeks. We highly recommend this property, the women especially liked that each bedroom has it's own bathroom and we would rent this chalet again if we need this many bedrooms.
Beautiful place in a perfect location
Our friends and family loved this place. Spacious and very clean. Thank you!
So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We truly appreciate your business and hope you choose to stay with us again when you return to Gatlinburg and the Smokies. Thank you for your business!
Excellent Getaway Place
We had a wonderful getaway here. The cabin was clean and beautiful. We enjoyed the pool table and hot tub. The 3 bedrooms each had their own bathroom, and each was on a different floor which allowed for privacy. The view off the porch was very nice. Greg provided great communication and was easy to work with. I would highly recommend staying here. It is close enough to town for convenience but far enough away to feel like you have gotten away.
We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was a nice cabin in a nice location, perfect for our trip. Plenty of games to keep kids busy. Would absolutely stay here again. Greg was so friendly, answering any questions I had. Thank you for opening your home to us! God Bless!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our goal is to make the Chalet feel like home with all the amenities that you need and the cleanliness and comfort that make you want to return again and again! We appreciate your business and hope you will stay with us again. Hope you have a wonderful New Year!
