Bear Alley is a 2,400 square foot, A-frame chalet located in Chalet Village, built mostly of tongue and groove wood with exposed beams throughout. It has a year-round view of Mount Le Conte and the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway and a winter view of downtown Gatlinburg. The driveway is easy to use with level parking for multiple cars. There are five flat-screen TV’s with Direct TV premium channels, Internet, Netflix in the great room, WIFI throughout, and a home phone line with free long distance for calls made within the 48 states. The walk-space around the back of the cabin serves as an alley for the wildlife—the bears frequent it.
The ground floor has a covered wrap-around patio with a 5-person covered hot tub, built-in charcoal grill, patio chairs, and a great view. Entering the front door on this level, you will find a game room with a large, stone, wood-burning fireplace, regulation-size pool table, 65” flat screen TV, stereo, wet bar with a mini kitchen, and bunk beds. Down the hall is a full-size laundry room and a suite that includes a full bathroom (tub/shower) and a bedroom with a queen-size bed and a private door that opens onto the covered patio.
Going up the stairs, you will enter a fully-equipped kitchen and a great room. The great room has large, vaulted ceilings, another large wood-burning fireplace, a 42” plasma TV with a Blu-ray player, Netflix, DVR, a seating area with one Amish rocking chair, and a dining area that accommodates eight. From the wall of windows on the front of the chalet, you can enjoy the view of Mount Le Conte and the tram. This level has a wrap-around deck where you can relax and watch the tram go by. You can hear the laughter and squeals of people as they go over Tower 4. The front deck has rocking chairs, patio chairs, and a picnic table that seats six to eight people.
Walking back through the kitchen you will find another suite with a full bathroom (tub/shower) and a queen-size bed. A private door opens onto the deck. There are two ways to reach this level—from the front staircase or from the rear at ground level (only two steps).
Moving up the next flight of stairs, you will find a loft that overlooks the great room. It has a a daybed, a seating area with one Amish rocking chair, great views, and books to read. Down the hall, you will find a walk-in closet, full bathroom (walk-in shower), and a bedroom with vaulted ceilings and two queen-size beds.
Having a bedroom/bathroom on each level provides families/couples with separate space for privacy. Each bedroom has a flat-screen TV. Our cabin is located less than five minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg, the national park, and Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area.
