About Kyle Steinhauser

Hello! We are the Steinhausers, Dan & Tina with our 3 sons, Kyle, Corey, and Austin. We have vacationed in the Smoky Mountains for years since our boys were little and hiked just about every trail in the park. Now that they are grown we have decided to together purchase a vacation home on beautiful Douglas Lake. While we are not there we offer it to our guests, along with all the tender loving care that we have put into lodge to make it enjoyable for all. We have personally fully reconditioned the lodge and are proud of our efforts. Thanks for looking! - Dan & Tina

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a fantastic stay at 1SkiLodge. It is in a perfect location juxtaposed to Dollywood, the Smoky Mountain National Park, Gatlinburg, beautiful Lake Dandridge and more. All of the five bedrooms have very comfortable beds and large closets. There is plenty of space for your whole family-including lots of outlets for all of your gadgets. The view is lovely and it is very quiet and peaceful to sit out on the back porch with a cup of tea in the morning. There is a full kitchen and all the comforts of home. It is so much better than staying in a hotel and a better value. Kyle was very thoughtful and even texted me in the evening to make sure we were getting there ok (we had late flights.) I can't recommend 1SkiLodge highly enough.

Beautiful property!!!

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful! Very big with plenty of room for all 10 of us! Beds were very comfortable which was a huge plus! However, wifi was advertised on the website and when we got there, there was none. This was an issue as my daughter is taking an online college course and 2 of us had some work related issues that needed to be taken care of. Also, when we arrived, there was a horrific smell of sulfur throughout the house. Someone was there attending to it. However, the smell did not go away. We called the owner after about the 2 day and he was apologetic and said he would see what he could do and would get back to us....we heard nothing! We ended up buying a lot of bottled water and some of us ended up showering in the lake as it was that bad. Overall, we did make the best of it and had a wonderful vacation! The lake is beautiful and very quiet. Loved it!!!

Relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

The property is directly on a cove of the lake near a marina with amenities. We brought our own boat, had a great time checking out the lake and jumping off the cliffs that the owner told us about. We shared the house with friends/ kids, lots to do when at the house if not on the water. Great time looking forward to coming back again.

Wonderful place on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was beautiful and very breathtaking. My family had a wonderful time and we will be sure to return. The view of the lake was nice to look at while eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the back porch. The cabin was very private and peaceful. The owners were easy to work with and replied quickly to all my questions. Also the place was very well kept and clean. I would recommend staying here!!!!

Best Lodge in the Smokie!

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the best and biggest lodges in the area. Extremely cozy and everything seemed to be updated. Also, the views of the lake are incredible.

We came on a whim in November but could see ourselves coming back for the summer months since there are hiking trails close by and the lake right there. It would also be a great destination for a large family to who is looking for a destination to spend the holidays.

We'll be back for sure!
