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.

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 Gatlinburg

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

Comfortable and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped, beautiful home! Comfortable beds, beautiful area, screened in porch is incredible! The views are not quite as depicted - pretty much fully obstructed by trees, but plenty of look out points nearby. Plenty of bear encounters, including one walking right into the driveway as we were packing up to leave 😳�. Overall a perfect stay!

This house was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this wonderful home. We had everything we needed and loved the screened in porch in the mornings and evenings. The spot where the house is located is beautiful and we even saw a bear while we were there. We will definitely be coming back to this place!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Tree Tops Too was exactly like it looks in the photos! It is decorated beautifully . It was very clean, had everything we needed and more. There were 9 of us-7 adults and 2 children and we had plenty of room. The beds were comfortable, showers were great. The scenery was beautiful and we saw lots of bears! Our granddaughters loved the TV tables that were built in the end table! What a great idea-we all want one of those. Wonderful hiking and fun things to do in town. We had a wonderful meal at the Best Italian Restaurant and the Cherokee Grill-yum! Thank you Dale, for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. We made

some wonderful family memories.

Jan and Bob Kicmol and family-Madison, Wi.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Jan. I'm glad you found the TV trays. Most people don't. My husband built that end table and I agree, I want one at home! It sounds like you hit all the high spots in the area. Best Italian's food IS wonderful and reasonable to boot. Our home was built with families in mind, so we love sharing it with people who appreciate and take care of it during their stay. You were great guests, so please come again. Family time is the best! Have a great summer. Dale

Beautiful and Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! I cannot say enough about how awesome this place is! It had everything we wanted and MORE!! The beds were so cozy and we all slept great! The kitchen was perfect to make our family dinners and snacks. It was better equipped than my own kitchen at home. Dale, the owner was wonderful to work with! We were lucky enough to see bear cubs every day that we were there. Which was so exciting for my 9 year old daughter! This will be a vacation to remember thanks to the kindness of Dale and an amazing cabin!

Owner's Response: LIsa, you are so sweet! I am so glad that you had everything you needed to make your trip enjoyable. We try very hard to make the house as comfortable as possible and to keep the kitchen stocked with everything needed to cook. Nothing is more frustrating to a cook than to be trying to prepare a meal without the proper equipment. Or, to have places at the table for 10 and flatware for 6. We all love to cook, so that is a priority for us as a family. I'm so thrilled that your daughter got to see the bears. They are wonderful to watch, especially the cubs. You were the perfect guests, so we would love to have you again, anytime. Thank you for taking such good care of the house and for all the kind words. Dale

Ms Dale the owner is awesome! She was so helpful in anything we needed to ask. Her place is phenomenal! So beautiful,with everything needed in it, sitting on the back porch and watching the bears was breathtaking. A very special trip to me, husband, 2 daughters, 2 son-n-law, and our four grandchildren. From one Nana to the other, thanks so much Dale and we will be back! ❤
