2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 300 yards from lake

This property is located on 17 beautiful wooded acres next to Douglas Lake. It is owned by Mountain Lake Resort, which has other buildings including a huge log cabin lodge with 8 bedrooms that sleeps up to 64, a hotel with 16 rooms that sleeps up to 64, and a large bunkhouse with 1 large room that sleeps up to 18. These venues are perfect for church groups & retreats, family reunions, anniversaries, birthday parties, etc.

This chalet is away from the hustle and bustle of town, away from other buildings on the property, and it is less than 300 yards from the lake.

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.

Great for the money!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, simple furnishing but more than adequate. Slept like a log. Definitely off the beaten path but that's what we like. Will stay here again!

Absolutely incredible!

  • 5 of 5

Such a clean comfortable place to stay! Everything was just right! We cooked breakfast and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils and pans. Lots of ice in the freezer. The bed sooo comfy! Only thing we had to get was charcoal for the grill and that was close by. The area offers boat rentals and a great seafood restaurant less than 5 miles away. The lake access from the chalet is a nice walk. We will be back! We can't say enough great things about Mountain Ranch Resort! Thank you!!!!

Rustic and affordable, and OH so Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Quite a place! Better than even advertised. Stayed on the first floor which is just like a home. Met the local forestry neighbors (Mother with twin fawns.) Would gladly stay again if the need arises. Thanks go to the owners for all their help in contacting us up to the point of renting!

Very quiet, private with a great hostess!

  • 3 of 5

Good: Great, peaceful, quiet location away from everything near a beautiful lake. Betty was very helpful. Wonderful, soft, new luxury hotel towels.

Bad: Good place for price but unfortunately the musty smell from all the recent rain severely affected my husbands allergies. So much that we had to leave a day early but Betty was very generous to reimburse us for our last day.

Children and I would give it a higher rating but unfortunately not my husband. Good for those who like the outdoors and aren't expecting 5 star hotel acomendations.
