About the Property

Bear Cub Vista is a wonderful mountain retreat only 3 miles from Gatlinburg

NOTE: Our complex here at High Chalet didn't get any fire damage and the areas surrounding our complex are still beautiful. The ski resort is still as nice as it was and we invite you to come see! Watch the skiers coming down the slopes from our balcony in the winter! Relax in our vacation condo! There's room for the whole family here, the kids will love the loft and there are two bedrooms downstairs with queen beds for parents and grand parents. This condo also has its own private internet service. We purchased this unit in December 2014 and are so excited to be sharing it with others. We are doing all we can to make this a special place for our guests so that they will want to visit time and time again. Ask about our military and senior discounts. Also if you have a larger group and want condos close together, contact me for information on also reserving the unit next door.
Sit on your balcony first thing in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee and the views of the clouds drifting through the trees. Watch as wild life, (which may include bears) roam through the complex (typically late afternoon or early morning). In the winter enjoy looking down at the skiers on the slopes at Ober Gatlinburg.
Enjoy the heated pool (in season) and relax in a nice warm hot tub. Nestle into the comfy recliner to read a book or to surf the web (free private internet). As you unwind from a day of sightseeing or shopping enjoy one of many cable channels or a movie on the big screen TV. We have stocked several DVD Hallmark and other family movies for your entertainment and there is a Bluray/DVD player. The new instant start electric fireplace will lend a nice atmosphere for your evening!
The condo is close to The Smoky Mountain National Park, and it is just a short drive down the mountain to the entrance where you can experience the beauty via an auto tour or by hiking one of the many trails to a waterfall, or to panoramic overlooks. Spend the day in Gatlinburg where you will find plenty shopping, dining, shows, museums, and a great Aquarium. Nearby Pigeon Forge hosts Dollywood Theme Park and a splash park, outlet shopping, live shows, museums, helicopter tours and amusement fun for kids of all ages!
High Chalet Condos are in the Chalet Village area near the top of Ski Mountain and they offer beautiful mountain views as you walk along the grounds. The condo is only about a mile from Ober Gatlinburg which offers year round family fun and it is a short 15 minute drive (about 3 miles) to downtown Gatlinburg. Be aware that bears often cross the road so drive carefully. The road is one of two main roads up the mountain but is winding and steep at times so be sure to be alert when going up and down. You get used to it I promise. Once in the complex you will find plenty parking (much of it level) near the entrance to the stairwell going up to our unit.
If you need a smaller condo we also have 3 2 bedroom condos nearby, vrbo 484195, vrbo 721628 and vrbo 721605 If you check there, you will see that we have excellent reviews! Check in is at 4pm and check out is at 10 am. This gives our cleaning crew time to get things fresh and clean between guests. We aim to keep all of our units nice and clean. Unlike some owners, we even send our linens out to a commercial sterilization company after every guest checks out. We go above and beyond to make our condos the best vacation home our guests have ever had!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: As a child growing up in middle Tennessee one of my favorite things to do was to go to the Smokies! I used to love wading the creeks, hiking up trails to waterfalls and watching candy makers stretch taffy in the candy shops in Gatlinburg. It was like being in a fantasy world. It took us away from all the chores at home and school. As an adult I have traveled to many places both in and out of our country and I still rank the Smoky Mountains as one of those places where you love to come back to, over and over again. There is always something new to see and experience. It takes me back to a slower time where people were more into nature and just sitting on the front porch soaking up the view.

Why the Owner Chose Chalet Village, Gatlinburg, TN, USA:
This is a small quiet complex high above the crowds of Gatlinburg. You can enjoy the mountain scenery and wildlife up here, yet be within a few minutes of downtown. The property grounds are well kept and most of the units are privately owned rather than vacation rentals so there is much less traffic coming and going into the complex.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The beauty of the Smoky Mountains is always changing, some mornings the clouds drift below you while you sip coffee on the balcony yet other days you may see a bear or two wandering along the parking lots. It is a world away from the busy rat race of daily life and a quiet retreat for families and couples.
