FIRE UPDATE: We are very fortunate that all of our cabins are fine. The recent fires missed our side of the mountain. Downtown Gatlinburg and all of the attractions are largely unharmed as well.
The view of the Smokys is still perfect from Number 6 Cabin. Most of the fires burned through so fast that they did not damage the trees. The leaves and underbrush burned, but the trees seem to have survived. Christmas, Extreme Week, and New Years will go on as usual in Gatlinburg. (Might not have fireworks for New Years).
Did we say 'great' enough? It's all true. Everyone that stays here says they love this cabin. And the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is well... Great.
Number 6 Cabin just finished a full top to bottom, inside and out renovation last summer. This is the sixth property that we have renovated in the Chalet Village resort. Usually, when are working on a cabin we find its most distinctive feature and use that to come up with its name. While we were working on this cabin, there were just so many great features that we just could not come up with that perfect name that could properly describe all of the unique features that we put into this chalet. During the renovation, everybody started referring to this cabin as 'Number 6', since it was our sixth. In the end, we stuck with the name decided to call it Number 6 Cabin, a combination of it's own unique character and everything that we have learned from the five that came before it.
The result of the renovation on Number 6 Cabin is a very comfortable vacation chalet which combines modern comfort and convenience with the rustic charm that its developers created 50 years ago. We know that you will enjoy your vacation here and want to come back season after season and year after year.

Number 6 cabin is our sixth cabin in Chalet Village and it is our best yet. We take great pride in renovating our cabins to bring them up to current luxury accommodation standards.
Driving - Please note that Chalet Village is located on the side of a mountain above the City of Gatlinburg. Access to this area is by steep mountain roads. The roads are generally in excellent shape, even during the winter ski season. The driveway at Number 6 Cabin is only about 25 feet long, but it is steep. It is accessible by most vehicles. Cars with very low ground clearance (Corvette) may drag at the entrance to the street and are not recommended. Trailers are also not recommended. If you have a trailer, let us know and we can arrange an alternate parking spot for it. Vehicles with slick tires or no tread may not be able to access this cabin. There is good flat parking with turn around at the top of the driveway. There is parking for a maximum of three vehicles. Some of our guests who are not used to driving in the mountains do experience 'driveway panic' the first time the see the driveway. Usually, after they have driven up a time or two they become pros. We have had hundreds of different vehicles at the cabin and only one or two that were too low to make it.
