Overview

About the property

4 King Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, screened porch, magnificent views, bear sitings

Tree Tops Too is a 6 year old chalet, designed by the Owner-Architect and decorated by the Owner-Interior Designer especially for their families. The home is built around a 40 year old stone fireplace. All of the stones were gathered by the owners from the mountain when Chalet Village was first installing roads. The Great Room features hand-made, specially designed trusses in the two story ceiling. We created this new luxurious haven as gathering place for friends and families.

The screened porch is our favorite feature where we talk and laugh, read, dine or simply look at the magnificent view across the mountain tops to Sevierville. From an elevation of 2965 feet, the view at night is especially breath taking as it reaches almost to I-40 on the other side of Sevierville and Douglas Lake. After you prepare your meals in the fully equipped kitchen, enjoy the view of Gatlinburg at night or Cosby in the daytime at our harvest table for 8.

Our 4 bedrooms contain high quality King Size mattresses and luxury linens. The two bedrooms on the second floor share a four piece bath which features a separate toilet room and glass vessel sink. They open onto the balcony with a sitting area, desk for computer work and a TV with an XBox 360, the perfect set-up for families with children. Downstairs on the main floor, each of the two bedrooms have private 3-piece baths and the same quality King Size beds. While our home is not handicapped accessible, the main floor is handicapped friendly with no carpeting, wide doorways and a step-in shower with a built-in bench and hand held shower head. The front door is only 4 steps down from the driveway. A wheelchair can easily move around the entire main floor including the porch and front deck, so everyone can be together.

There are parking spaces for two vehicles which are adjacent to and only 4 steps above the front door. An additional two spaces are available at the top of the drive approximately 40 feet from the front door.

Preparing meals in our fully equipped kitchen is so enjoyable because, not only can you glance up to see our wonderful views, but since the kitchen is open to the Great Room, Dining Room, Screened porch and deck, you are always part of the group. You will feel right at home here. Whether you are cooking pizza or Thanksgiving dinner, you will find the equipment you need in our kitchen. Then you have the choice of eating at our Harvest table in the dining room or dining alfresco on the porch.

Viewing the mama bears with their cubs, is especially enjoyable from the safety of the front deck or screened porch. Children adore this and will look forward to it in the mornings and around dusk each day.

With the Owner's Club card you not only have access to 3 clubhouses with swimming pools, a children's playground, tennis courts, pool table and foosball, but the card allows you to receive discounts at all the Ripley's attractions, including the Aquarium, and many of the local restaurants. Check out the clubhouse and discounts at https://chaletvillageownersclub.com.

If you are planning a FAMILY REUNION or WEDDING, please check out the beautiful facilities available to you at a reduced price at 2 of the Chalet Village Owner's Clubhouses. There are banquet facilities and kitchens for your use. Check out the latest information at https://chaletvillageownersclub.com.

About Dale Pool

Our parents built our original chalet in the Smoky Mountains in 1972, and shared it with friends and family for years. Now, my sister, Susan and her husband Bill and my husband, Lynn and I have built a new luxury home that we would like to share with you.

We have a little family poem that best describes the way we feel about our home and we hope you will feel the same way and totally enjoy your stay at Tree Tops Too.

'Nestled in the smoky hills,

Where the mountain folds around,

Stands a little piece of heaven,

Growing from the fertile ground.'

-Dale Pool

Dale Pool purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Dale Pool chose Chalet Village

We have been coming to the mountains since we were children and could think of no better place to bring our children and grandchildren. Whatever your family enjoys, it can be found in this area. With the added benefit of the amenities of the Chalet Village Owner's clubs and discounts at local attractions and restaurants, there is no limit to the activities available. We are avid fly fishermen so we always head to the National Park to fish and picnic. Tree Tops Too is located about 1/4 mile by foot from the Park boundary and a trailhead to Sugarland Visitor Center below. But if you are looking for something more exciting, Pigeon Forge, a short ride of about 15 miles, offers outlet shopping, Dollywood, numerous restaurants and other attractions.

Year ‘round there is no limit to the activities available to you and your family in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. So if you desire roller coasters or simply sitting on the screen porch reading a book, we have what you are looking for.

There is nowhere, in our opinion, that nature is more beautiful. Here you become immersed in it!

What makes this chalet unique

Besides the location, the best features of our home is the screened porch with its views. Our stone fireplace means so much to us because we gathered every single stone used to construct it. We also brought stones from other important places and people in our lives. So it represents our family history.

The house is comfortable and welcoming and has the ability to make you shed your everyday life and stress in a truly amazing way.

And if you want more action than 'porch sitting', the area offers just about anything you desire. The perfect location for a family vacation. From the house you have easy access to the Gatlinburg bypass which allows you to avoid downtown traffic to get to Pigeon Forge or the National Park. During peak periods this can save your valuable time for activities a lot more fun than sitting in traffic!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would just like to say Thank You for allowing us to stay and enjoy this beautiful and charming cabin! We have really enjoyed ourselves! The unexpected snow gave us quite the surprise, but it was the perfect addition to our experience. The view..just amazing. The cabin is so welcoming and warm. We often referred to it as our "home" and although we had a great time out and about in town, we couldn't wait to get back to the cabin. Many laughs and great memories were made here. We will always remember our mountain adventure and this beautiful cabin. We hate to leave, but we will definitely enjoy the view on the way down. You have helped us cross an item off our bucket list and we will always be grateful. Many Blessings from Mississippi

An excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, comfortable, and roomy. It is quiet, and though there are plenty of other houses in the village, it still "feels" isolated. In many ways, however, the best part was dealing with the owners (before and during), who were incredibly responsive and helpful. Note that this house is located a good way up in the mountains and is reached through very windy, narrow roads (as can be deduced via on-line map). Entry into the Smoky Mountains National Park, and to Gatlinburg, is very close by.
