GREAT NEWS. Our chalet survived the Gatlinburg wildfires very well!! The side of Ski Mountain that we are on is outside the fire footprint .From our chalet, you still have great views. Thank you to all who have sent thoughts and prayers.
The Kids won't want to leave!!! Our kid friendly home has something to offer everyone!!EXCELLENT views which include beautiful sunrises over Mt. LaConte, the aerial tram, downtown Gatlinburg, a game room with FREE REAL arcade games that will for sure entertain adults and children for hours,located near one of the three Chalet Village community heated pools (open mid-May to mid Sept.),and 1/2 mile from the entrance to Ober Gatlinburg ski area. All of this for a great value!! PLUS, we have PARKING!! We have a parking area that can fit 4-5 cars across and everyone can get out or park a motorcycle trailer!!
Our Chalet is a large A-frame design. It has three levels with a bath on each level. The first level has 2 bedrooms (1Q, 1F), a full bath and a laundry facility (washer and dryer). The main level has 2 bedrooms (2Q's), a full bath, the living/dining room,gas fireplace with sunken living room, kitchen, and decks which surround 2 sides of our home, and the hot tub. The 3rd level has a bedroom (1K + couch), plus a bed (1F + loveseat) on the loft, a bath. The game room is its own room off this level and has couches. Our cabin is close to all the area attractions(Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, Cherokee, National Park entrance and more). It sits on top of Ski Mountain in the Chalet Village neighborhood and our street ends with the boundry to the National Forrest which allows for an occasional visit from wildlife, i.e. 'L'il Smokey', a black bear, that likes to visit our home from time to time in search of their next meal. Eventhough, we are on top of the mountian, we are still only 3 miles from downtown Gatlinburg and 15 minutes to Pigeon Forge.
We have WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICE, FREE LONG DISTANCE PHONE SERVICE for US & Canada, and digital cable. We have stereo systems, DVD and VHS players and a movie library for your viewing pleasure. For your comfort, we offer luxury linens and towels, a complete kitchen and dishes with a set up for 15.
Our home has something for everyone...entertainment, close to all area attractions, views, the house is located a lot away from your neighbors on all sides, and fun. The word I usually use to describe our home is that is has 'Great Flow' for a group. While the kids are up in the game room, the adults can enjoy a movie or views from the deck.
We would love for you to stay with us. Just e-mails us today.

It was a great time for us! Kids and adults all had fun in the game room!! Beds super comfortable! Great shower pressure! Overall a great time!
Owner was nice, view was great, cabin lacking.
First the owner was VERY responsive to emails which is nice. And the view is amazing. We had fun watching the tram car. But, we did get this cabin for our kids.... and the games. 1 arcade game didn’t work, it doesn’t have fussball table as shown and the Play Station wouldn’t work at all (which was a huge deal for us because we don’t have a gaming system at home so this was supost to be the BIG surprise with the cabin for our kids).
The beds slept ok, but no couch in the master as shown in photos (which could be a big deal if you were counting on it... wasn’t for us)
Over all, eh. I wouldn’t rent it again. It needs a hug and a more accurate description of what it includes.
Jennifer, Thank you for your review and input. We actually have done a lot since your visit. We have replaced the carpet, some older furniture items, and I have updated the photo of the game room - since we had to remove the foosball table. We actually had the video games looked at just prior to the visit - and we did have one of our 10 games that had a bad power source that had to be ordered.
Additionally, we understand how important it is to have a VERY accurate description, so I have gone through and updated everything accordingly. Please see other reviews for an overall representation of our chalet.
Excellent family vacation!!
This cabin has everything you could possible need and the location is great. The kids spent the entire time in the arcade room!! I recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a great family getaway close to lots to do!!!
A total dump
This place needed a good cleaning and cosmetic attention. It could be charming, but I would not recommend to anyone in this condition.
Linda, I am sorry that you felt that way. Having said that, in 2018, we have been able to replace the carpets, replace some furniture, re-felt the pool table, and basically give our cabin some important updating. Please see some other reviews for a total representation of our chalet.
Nice cabin for a weekend getaway. Saw some bears. A nice experience.
Great for Kids
We spent our Fall Break at the Bear Drop in and boy oh boy did the Bear Drop in!! We had very up close views of 2 separate Mom and babies daily! They enjoyed the hot tub as much as we did!! We really enjoyed watching them and one of the kids left a bag of candy in the car and the Bear opened the door and grabbed the bag of candy for her 2 cubs! Kinda scary and I'm glad the kids where not down there and we watched from the deck!
We arrived a little early and the cleaning lady was there and let us bring our bags in so we could get groceries which was nice.
The cabin in on the older side and really would only need a few things done to make it a 5 star. The carpet while it maybe clean is in tough shape. It's a little on the dark side because of the paneling and the steps are pretty steep so if you have someone who can't walk good might be to much.
The house was stocked with plenty of towels and blankets and the kitchen has everything you need. We used the grill one night so it was nice to have the gas already connected.
Beautiful views from the deck.
We enjoyed the game room. The pictures show a foosball table but, it wasnt there and the pool table is not in shape for a real game of pool as the fabric is torn in places.
The couch in the Master bedroom is a loveseat and didn't turn into a sofa sleeper like it states but, we had plenty of space.
The owners responded very promptly when I had a question.
Overall it was awesome to see the Bears and it's a fun cabin if your using the game room!!
Thanks for letting us stay!!
Kelly, Thank you for your input and review. We do have quite a few BEAR visitors in our area.
Additionally, we have been able to significantly update the chalet. We have replaced the carpets, replaced some furniture, put new felt on the pool table and updated our picture for the listing. We put 100% of available cash back into the cabin and we are always trying to improve.
