About Eric & Danielle Brown
Our story is one of how a Tennessee boy fell in love with a Texas Gal. Seven years later, we have a beautiful daughter, a wonderful son and a zoo (three dogs and three sneaky cats). We have bought and renovated several houses around the country (My husband says we are allergic to free time). And since he grew up in Tennessee, he wanted a vacation house in the Smokeys near his roots.
Eric & Danielle Brown purchased this Chalet in 2016
Why Eric & Danielle Brown chose Chalet Village
We loved this property because of its large size, great location and can host all of our family and friends for a vacation. This house is very calming and the sunrise is beautiful from the porches.

Great for family vacation
Our family group of eleven stayed at Bare Necessities for a week and we were very comfortable. The home’s size and location were perfect for us! The house did have a leaky roof during our stay. The hosts responded quickly, sent their housekeeper to check it out the same day, and scheduled a roofer and an electrician to come when the weather cleared. The owners have done a nice job remodeling. The bathrooms are pretty and stylish with plenty of nice towels, but we were not fans of the misting shower heads. The kitchen is also nice with upgraded appliances, dishes, and cookware. We also enjoyed the pool table, the hot tub, and visits from Baloo and her three cubs.
If you have a large group, I have a couple of things you might want to consider. The kitchen is large and lovely with cabinets full of dishes and cookware, but there is no cabinet or pantry for non perishable food. We stored ours on the bar top. Secondly, the king mattresses are very comfortable, but two of the bunk beds have very little headroom and the pullout downstairs was broken. This was not a problem for us. We had a wonderful time!
We were 3 families traveling together. The kids loved the bunk room on the first level. They had their own bathroom and television. We cooked 2 nights, and everything was in working order. The cabin is convenient to downtown gatlinburg and quick park access.
Family affair near Gatlinburg
Beautiful place and location. Perfect size house for our combined family of 6 adults and 6 children. The kid’s bunk room was a hit. The house also comes with access to 3 swimming pool club houses - this became our afternoon activity. Everyone loved this family adventure!
Beary fine vacation
We loved our “bear” neighbors. A mama and her 3 cubs visited almost every day. Plenty of room for our family and appreciated the we’ll-stocked kitchen. The misting showers were not our favorites and the floors didn’t appear to be vacuumed. We had a wonderful time!
We had a great time. Loved the house. Beautiful. Right before we got to the house the last curve was a little scary. We loved the house. We would definitely recommend.
