About Val and Renee Morel

Val & I in Seattle on a family vacation.

Val and Renee Morel purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Val and Renee Morel chose Chalet Village

Why did we buy vacation homes in Gatlinburg Tennessee? We both love the mountains. In fact, we got married in Gatlinburg at Chapel in the Glen: chapelwedding dot com. Gatlinburg is beautiful in all 4 seasons. We just love vacationing here!

We were delighted by the cabin's contemporary design that is complimented by the warm wood ceilings and flooring, the unique features such as the stained glass windows and the free standing cast iron wood burning fireplace, private indoor sauna and the semi-enclosed sunken hot tub.

What makes this cabin unique

While shopping for our 1st Gatlinburg vacation home, we fell in love with the character of the cabin and the gorgeous, unique views. The cabin is a delightful combination of contemporary design & rustic elegance. Our guests enjoy upscale furnishings and amenities, plus welcoming, comfortable atmosphere. The views were unlike any other we had seen while vacationing in the Smokies. The views include a direct view of Ober Gatlinburg ski and amusement area, panoramic mountain views, lovely & ever changing views of Mount LeConte, and night time view of the twinkling lights of downtown Gatlinburg. The cabin is family friendly and pet friendly. Other special features of the cabin include: large picture windows and views from every room, unique wood burning fireplace, glasstop octagon shaped dining table, semi-enclosed deck with sunken hot tub, indoor sauna, cable channels, free long distance calls, Wi-Fi, showers with dual shower heads, and spacious flat parking pad. 'Mt LeConte Vista' sleeps up to 8 guests with 3 king size beds and 1 queen size bed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So comfortable! Matched exactly with what was there in the pics!

Thank you guys. We had a really comfortable stay. The views from the rooms, the living area and from the patio were beautiful. Hot water tub works as expected, the kitchen was very stocked. Didn't have any network issues. Overall, great experience.

We really loved this chalet! The views were fantastic! The Morels are so organized and we recieved our security deposit back within 3 days of our return home. We loved the lay out of the house and it held our family of 7 just perfectly. Our only reccomendation would be to replace the charcoal grill with a gas grill! Thanks, guys, for letting us stay in your lovely home!

Always awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! This is our 4th year at this wonderful house, BEST view in Gatlinburg, even if it was shrouded in clouds for much of this rainy weekend! Great place to stay in your jammies, curl up with blankets, and be together! The only thing i would ever say to update is maybe to a tankless water heater in the water gives out pretty quick with 5 people taking showers. Everything by & large is spectacular at this cabin : ) !

It’s all about the view ! Beautiful and entertaining

  • 5 of 5

Have to say we enjoyed our stay ! Perfect for more than one family with the split level separation . Beds were very comfortable and cabin has all that you need . The only issue was downstairs shower wouldn’t drain because of the cold weather freezing the pipes but that’s mother nature’s fault and it was handled very quickly .while we were out enjoying Ober Gatlinburg. We would definitely stay here again and again ! Like I said before it’s all about the view and this cabin is all windows so there’s not a bad room in the house .

What a view! We had a wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the cabin is beyond awesome. Overlooking the ski slopes we were able to watch the skiers day and night. The cabin had everything we needed and then some. We cooked some meals there and never needed anything that was not provided. Just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We will definitely be back to stay here again!!!
