About the property

4 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Sleeps 9 Mountain Chalet

Ober Baden is one of the original A-Frame Chalets that you imagine when thinking about your vacation in Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains. This three story, four bedroom chalet has recently completed a total renovation inside and out and has all of the comfort and amenities that you expect with a luxury vacation rental. This property is located in the Chalet Village Resort area of Gatlinburg with easy access to 3 club houses with pool, tennis , game room and fitness center. This is without a doubt the best location to spend your vacation in the Mountains!!

Ober Baden offers spacious great room, game room, and outdoor deck areas. Three level design makes it great for a one large family gathering while also providing relatively private accommodations for 3 individual families. There is paved off street parking for three or four vehicles.

Third Floor: the upper floor has a large bedroom with King bed with a private bath, containing a vanity, stall shower, and toilet. The bedroom features a 32 inch LCD TV with a Blu-ray disk player that supports Netflix and other Internet applications. There is an additional Twin Sleeper Ottoman on this floor in the loft overlooking the great room below. (Note:: the pictures show a twin bed but the fire department made us remove it. WE replaced it with a very high quality sleeper ottoman from Costco. It is actually better than the twin that was there.)

Second Floor: The main floor has a large updated fully equipped Kitchen. The kitchen includes a 12 cup drip coffee maker, a single cup Keurig coffee maker, blender, toaster, microwave, crock pot, and electric can opener. The kitchen is open to the living/dining great room. The great room has a vaulted A-Frame ceiling and a huge stone wood burning fireplace. This room contains a dining area featuring a large wooden table with seating for 8 plus additional seating for 2 at the kitchen counter. This living room has full size sofa and love seat. There is a 42 inch LCD TV with a blu-ray disk player that supports Netflix and other internet applications. There is oak hardwood flooring in the living room and kitchen. The main level also has a large wrap around deck with covered outdoor dining. Also on this deck is a separate covered area with rocking chairs. The main level bedroom has a Queen bed and a separate entry door which opens out onto the deck. This bedroom has a 32 inch LCD TV with a blu-ray disk player that supports Netflix and internet applications. The main floor bathroom is just across the hall from the bedroom and has a vanity, toilet, and tub/shower.

First Floor: The lower floor has a game room with a full size pool table and wet bar with a small refrigerator. There is a full size sofa and love seat and a large stone wood burning fireplace. The game room provides a 50 inch LCD TV and Blu-ray disk player that also supports Netflix and other internet applications. The laundry room has a full size washer and dryer as well as a full size ironing board and iron. There is a full bath with a vanity, toilet and stall shower. There are two small bedrooms. The first has a Full size bed and the second has a Twin bed. (Note: the fire department made us remove the full bed from the second bedroom and replace it with a twin. We added a full sleeper ottoman in the game room.) Each bedroom has a 24 inch LCD TV with built-in DVD players. There is also a very high quality sleeper futon from Costco that makes into a very nice full bed. The first floor is carpeted throughout except for the bathroom and laundry room, which are both tiled. Just outside the game room is a large covered 8 person hot tub.

PETS: 2 Pets are welcome. Pets require a $25.00 non-refundable cleaning fee. Renter is responsible for any additional cleaning fees and loss of revenue due to damage caused by pets, this includes fleas. Ober Baden is located very near the park boundary so owners should take care to keep pets away from wildlife. From the evening to the early mornings bears, turkey, squirrels, coyotes, bobcats, raccoons, and foxes are commonly seen in this area.

Cable / WiFi / Telephone: All TV's have DirecTV Satellite television. Free high speed (20 MB/s) wireless internet access is provided for our guest at Ober Baden. The chalet is also equipped with a computer terminal that the guests can use to check email, browse the internet, and find information about local attractions, restaurants, and activities. There is NO printer, copier, or fax machine provided at this location. Unlimited US long distance is provided for free. There is also a limited amount of free international long distance provided depending on destination and type of call.

Most of the TVs have an available HDMI input for a gaming console or Internet TV box if you want to bring your own. We do not provide an extra HDMI cable, so bring that too.

Winter Weather Warning: The elevation at Ober Baden is nearly the same as the lodge at nearby Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort. In case of inclement winter weather, 4 wheel drive, all wheel drive vehicles with winter tires or vehicles equipped with snow chains are advised. We Recommend checking the weather and web-cam at Ober Gatlinburg to determine the weather conditions here. The City of Gatlinburg does an excellent job of keeping the roads open in winter, but in case of heavy snowfall, it make take a day or more to make the roads safe for travel. When staying here in the winter, it is advised that you bring extra supplies just in case.

About Tim & Carol Addington

We retired to Gatlinburg and began buying and renovating chalets in Chalet Village. We take our time with each cabin. It usually takes us a year or longer to update a cabin. We do as much as we can to update the cabin to modern day resort standards with all of the amenities that people expect in 5 star resort rentals.

Tim & Carol Addington purchased this chalet in 2011

Why Tim & Carol Addington chose Chalet Village

This cabin was one of the original A-Frame Chalets built in the mid 60's when Chalet Village was first developed. Over the years, a lot of these cabins have fallen into disrepair as the original owners or their children have failed to maintain them. When we found this cabin, it was in pretty bad shape, but the frame was solid and the walls, stonework, and roof were in great shape. It sets solidly on the lot and the driveway was in great shape. We did a top to bottom renovation inside and out with new insulation, plumbing, and heat pump. We rebuilt the whole lower floor using a raised floor system to get it off the concrete slab. We also insulated and paneled the walls on this floor using red cedar tongue and groove paneling planks. We added new hardwood and carpet throughout the chalet along with a new HVAC system to keep the chalet warm in winter and cool in summer.

What makes this chalet unique

The three level design of this chalet provides a layout that make it comfortable for three individual families to share this chalet. Each floor has bedrooms and bathrooms so that there is privacy on each level.

Great mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying here! Perfect size for our group, and a short drive from both Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountain National Park. Tim and Carol were awesome hosts, and we were very sad to leave at the end of the week!

Great for large families

  • 5 of 5

My grandkids and children enjoyed a wonderful, long weekend together! Everything you need is in the kitchen, along with a nice gas grill! Carol and Tim were also amazing and very accommodating. Thank you so much for sharing your chalet with us.

Amazing Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed their modern cabin. Was very spacious and in great location to both town and the forest. If it is snowy you will definitely need four wheel drive though (luckily for us it wasn't!)

Stunning chalet! Big enough for comfortable space but still feel together

  • 5 of 5

We just loved staying at Tim and Carol's Ober Baden Chalet! It was so comfortable it truly felt like home away from home. Everything you need is there just bring your own food and toiletries. Having the game room on the bottom floor truly allowed the kids to enjoy themselves without disturbing anyone on the floors above. We love that the Christmas lights were still up outside because when we came home and it was dark it made it much more easy to find the Home. Fair warning the drive up the mountain and the driveway is a little bit scary the first couple times you drive them but you will get used to it. The owners communicated thoroughly throughout the process and were very helpful. We so enjoyed sitting on the porch night and day. The sunrise coming up over the mountains shining through the a frame windows was a best wake up call we ever had.

Believe all the positive reviews! This place is great.

Planning our next stay already!

PS if bringing a dog plan on walking the roads and finding some grass! No yard. The only improvement I would recommend is to fence in the front under the deck as a dog run for puppies like ours that don't like to potty on a leash.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We usually take the Christmas lights down at the end of January, but this year the weather has been so cold and then so wet that we are just now getting around to taking them down. Excellent suggestion about the dog run. We are always looking for things that we can do to improve our guests experience.

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a Christmas family get-together and we had a wonderful time. Despite the surprise snow storm, everything was ready and we enjoyed every moment. The Christmas decorations were wonderful and made everything even more festive. The chalet was very comfortable and inviting. We highly recommend a stay there.

This property is at the same elevation as the entrance to the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort. If staying in winter, it is highly recommended that you have all weather tires with good tread. If snow/ice conditions exist, an all wheel drive vehicle or vehicle with chains may be required. The City of Gatlinburg does an excellent job of clearing the roads, but in the case of a snow/ice storm during your stay, you should be prepared to wait until the roads are cleared. It is always a good idea to have an extra day or two of supplies when staying in winter.
