Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath, Sleeps six, With Great Kitchen And Beautiful Living Spaces

Traditional Roundette built in the Chalet Village style of the 60's. The entire house has been newly renovated with great attention to detail. House is situated on a quiet cul de sac in one of the most sought after areas of Chalet Village. Very close to the Chalet Village clubhouse and directly below the ski slopes of Ober Gatlinburg. Each bedroom has direct access to a bath and the bath on the main level has handicap features to assist the more mature traveler. Wonderful kitchen with everything you need to never leave. Inside the house you are surrounded by the beauty of the area as well as the construction of years gone by. The house has two wonderful fireplaces. One on each level. The master bedroom on the main level with no steps from the driveway has a king size bed, downstairs with a private entrance, one bedroom has a queen size bed and the other has a beautiful antique double iron bed. There is a sofa bed in the main level living room which is perfect if parent's have small children and do not feel comfortable with them downstairs. Off the lower level is a wonderful deck to simply relax and enjoy yourself. This is a great place to eat al fresco or to enjoy your morning coffee. The house has a living room on the main level and a den on the lower level. Both have entrances to the driveway. The house has flat screen televisions in every room and is equipped with high definition cable as well as WiFi throughout the entire house. There is a washer and dryer and you have all the comforts of home. The driveway will easily park four cars. There a slight slant to the driveway but it is easily maneuvered. This house is perfect for families that are coming to enjoy all that the Great Smoky Mountains has to offer. It is meant to be enjoyed for the surroundings and the close proximity to all the attractions that Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park have to offer. Please note when looking at this house that there is not a hot tub or a pool table. We wanted the extra space for families and multiple groups to be able to spread out and enjoy themselves. As an extra bonus, when you book at the weekly rate you are receiving one night free. If you need more room, check out our sister property, 'Mother's Condo' VRBO number 652915. This one is located two blocks from the Little Round House. The two houses together make perfect space for larger groups or family reunions. The Chalet Village Clubhouse is in between both properties. If both properties are rented there is a multi house discount. Due to the quality of renters that we have had we are no longer requiring the CSA non-refundable damage deposit. We have added a small totally refundable damage deposit that is fully refundable.. We have also added two larger homes if you are looking for something bigger, The Perfect House, 678279 and A Rivers Edge, 570067.

About Russell G. Glasgow

I am a United Methodist minister serving in Birmingham, Alabama. Gatlinburg has always been a favorite vacation spot for our family and it has been for me since I became an adult. I never grow tired of the ever changing scenery and the wonderful events that the City of Gatlinburg is famous for. I have always felt that the worst of days is a good day in the mountains.

Russell G. Glasgow purchased this chalet in 2011

Why Russell G. Glasgow chose Gatlinburg

This house was purchased sight unseen from an older couple that had built the house. The original name of the house is 'Precious Memories' If you notice the tourist tag in the window it is the 32nd house that went on the rental market in the City of Gatlinburg. I had looked for several years and had contacted this couple some years earlier. They called one day and over the phone we settled the deal. It is amazing in the fact that I had looked for several years to find one in this area and near the five way stop sign. This house was the perfect size to get away from the business of the world and it holds all my odd collectibles perfectly. You will notice as soon as you step through either door that it is a house that we took treasured items, repurposed them, and made our vacation home from pieces and collectables that had graced our homes throughout the years. It was our desire to never have a house that had a 'Kit' look to the scheme of decorating. We wanted great mattresses, great linens and all the amenities it takes to have the ability to step back in time and simply relax. Our goal is something will remind you of your past and you will create memories that travel with you throughout your lifetime.

What makes this chalet unique

I love the history of the house and the fact that it has stood the test of time. I also love the fact that this house has not one but two of the original river rock fireplaces that were so common in the 60's. There is nothing prefab when you drive up to this house. It was also important to have the ability to have all living on one level which this house does.Nothing is prettier than when it is a cold winter night and the snow begins to fall and you have a wonderful fire in the fireplace. Modern fireplaces are lovely but this house has fireplaces of substance. It is just a nice place to be close to EVERYTHING but far enough away to feel secluded. All the roads are maintained, paved and plowed by the city and all utilities are city utilities which gives you a feel of safety when the weather makes a change. I love the fact that no matter how bad the weather becomes Ski Mountain road is always open, The best restaurants and night spots in Gatlinburg are at the beginning of Ski Mountain Road. The location is perfect as you can go back roads to Pigeon Forge, ride easily to Cades Cove and be in downtown Gatlinburg in a matter of minutes.

Notes:
This is a great vacation rental to simply relax. You will generally see bears and you will have wonderful places to walk and to simply unwind. If you are looking for a house that is a mini-amusement park with indoor pools and miniature golf this is not the house you need. It has been redone so that you can simply forget the stress of everyday life. One of the very best features is that it is quiet. Bears are frequent visitors and all forms of wildlife are in the vicinity. Great place to watch each of the four seasons change.

We want to thank Russell and his family for the hospitality. Everything was in good order. One night there were two bear families around the house.

Little Round House with Big Charm!!!

  • 5 of 5

First off, this was a last minute booking due to Hurricane Irma canceling our honeymoon cruise and evacuating from our home in South Georgia. It was extremely easy to book through th VRBO app and the owner Russell was extremely nice and helpful. Not only do he make it easy for us to stay there but he made suggestions on where to watch our football game and get some great food. We didn't get to see any bears but that's not why we went it just would have been a plus. The neighbors around the house were also very helpful and nice to speak with, they didn't treat us like "renters" but instead treated us like family and friends. We followed our GPS coming into Gatlinburg which was a mistake, once we learned the right way down and up the mountain then it was a breeze and took less then 10 minutes in the rain and fog. Everything we needed was in the house and even when it was a little warmer outside the house never got over 70 inside and we never had to touch the heat or AC. We will definitely try to book this house again the next time we take a trip to Gatlinburg!!!! Thank you for the hospitality Russell!!!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a great time. You were a delight to work with and that always makes it easier to offer suggestions. So many people feel that the whole area is burned up. I'm glad you saw that it is not. I apologize about the GPS I have tried to get them to realize that Gillespie does not go through. Once you know your way you are close to everything. Thank you again for your kind words.

Eclipse getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this place! Came up to gatlinburg with some friends for the eclipse, and this was an amazing little place to stay. It's clean, they have everything you could need, and overall is a very comfy home. Sadly we did not see any bears, but I won't hold that against the owners ;) definitely would recommend!!!

Very homey cabin

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed the cabin. We even got a morning view of a bear with her cubs. The road traveling to the cabin was quite curvy but doable. Everything was in the house that one wanted or needed.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is so charming and the location is so close to the park. We felt like home. We even saw bears there. My children were so happy to meet the neighbors next door who let them see more bears in their backyard. They even named them Hoodie and Howdie. We want to say thanks to Mr. Glasgow to help us to make this event more memorable and enjoyable.
