Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place is fabulous for a fun family getaway! We just returned home from our stay and had a fabulous time. The Chalet had plenty of room for our four adults and two toddlers. It’s close enough to everything, but far enough away to still be relaxing if you want to be away from the busy streets. We would definitely return!

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We would love to keep this place as a secret vacation spot, that wouldn't be fair to the owners.

We went for relaxation and quiet retreat - check.

Wanted to spend time in the Smokies from a close location - check.

Looked for opportunities to visit with locals and find little known places to visit - check.

The place was clean and comfortable. We cooked as opposed to eating out. Couldn't have been more at home. Will be back.
