About Kris Bright

It all started with a vacation of our own to The Great Smokey mountains in 1994 and when it was over, we returned home packed our boxes and made the big move. We absolutely fell in love with this area and all it has to offer.

Breathtaking views, beautiful foliage, the true feel of 4 seasons and all the reasons why East Tennessee is nicknamed 'Gods Country'.

My husband and are I are avid motorcycle enthusiast and have been to many areas to ride and it just does not get any better than this area to ride a motorcycle.

Kris Bright purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Kris Bright chose Pigeon Forge

When this property came available I was reluctant to give in to the purchase of it (it was a very large project to take on), but the location was perfect, the property was beautiful and its not often you get the chance to buy 2 1/2 acres of level property with a nice creek on it in the middle of the Smokey Mountains. So, I gave in and after a lot of work we finally finished it and now we want to share it with hopes that everyone who has the opportunity to vacation in it and visit The Great Smokey Mountains enjoys and loves it as much as we do. We take great pride in our property and are responsive to our renters needs and strive to make our chalet their home away from home.

If you send an email or message and do not hear from me within 24 hours i did not get get it, I respond to all inquiries with-in 24 hours.

What makes this chalet unique

This location offers privacy and intimate accommodations just 2 miles from all the action on the Parkway. It's rare to find a home that has spacious living areas, ample parking, and huge yard for outdoor activities, guest's will not feel crowded inside or outside and easy access during the winter months as the roads are well maintained and there are NO STEEP INCLINES to the property.

Great place for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The Grand Chalet was perfect for our family vacation. There were 18 of us with 8 of those being children under the age of 14. The Chalet has all of the amenities of home and then some. We found it to be clean and comfortable with lots of room for everyone to have their own space but great common areas for all to gather. The owner provided many activities for the children and adults with an ample game room, large yard, fire pit, creek running through property, and many opportunities to enjoy the out of doors. A bonus was the horses in the pasture next to the property. They were very gentle and eager to eat the treats offered to them. A big advantage for us was that the Chalet is located far enough away from the glit of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg yet close enough to the National Park to allow for easy access to all of the venues. We highly recommend The Grand Chalet at Pigeon Forge.

The house was very comfortable and the owner most helpful

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable and the owner most helpful The house worked well for my family which included three couples four children two dogs and grandma. It is handicap accessible because we had a nine-year-old who uses a wheelchair. There is a nice ramp coming up out of the garage into the house there is a bedroom and two bathrooms on the first floor. The house was very very clean and well supplied plenty to do there we pretty much stayed At the house the whole time. You don’t have to venture into pigeon Forge and all the honky-tonk, there are horses right next-door to feed and pet and the owner even supplied carrots and apples. And the next property over is a fun place with trail rides petting zoo catch and release fishing and gem mining. It was also decorated very pretty for fall and Thanksgiving. I give it a four star instead of a five only because both of the ovens in the kitchen were not working properly and although the owner gave us oven thermometers to use in both ovens it was an extreme challenge to get a Thanksgiving dinner prepared with two ovens with temperatures that were like a roller coaster. I told her about the problem and she said that they will be either repaired or replaced before she rents to anyone else.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review Diane, I am so glad your family enjoyed their stay, so sorry you had trouble with the ovens, I did offer to have an appliance professional come out and fix the issues you were having but you declined, just know that this issue has been resolved. Hope to see you all again, thank you all again, Kris B.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you for your kind review Robert, as for the limited wifi, had you made me aware that you were having trouble with it I'm sure it could of been resolved easily, as simple as relocating it to another area in the chalet, I am always accessible to my guest no matter how small the matter might be and I do try to stress this to all my guest's, so sorry that you had this inconvenience.

Great Property to Spread Out and Enjoy the Smokies

  • 5 of 5

A group of 21 people recently stayed and there was more than enough room for all of us. The layout of the house allows for great spaces to gather together either in small or large groups. The huge upstairs game room is well-appointed with a large couch, pool table and space to enjoy each others company. The bedrooms contained more than enough beds and each one room has a bathroom. Not one person went without a bed. The outside wrap around porch was perfect for enjoying the day. A large, level front yard allowed for us to enjoy many activities including corn hole, horse shoes, volleyball and soccer. One of the best features of the property is that it sits next to a horse ranch. The horses come right up to the gate. The kids enjoyed petting and feeding the horses each day. The owner was very helpful and responsive during the reservation process and our stay. I would certainly recommend this place to families and groups for a nice hideaway while also being able to go to Pigeon Forge in 10 minutes. In addition, Gatlinburg is a close drive and we were able to go there to enjoy the many great opportunities the Smokies offers.
