This lovely chalet and beautiful views are tucked away in Chalet Village high atop Ski Mountain. Our large, one bedroom chalet is less than 3 miles from downtown Gatlinburg and borders the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It truly offers the privacy and convenience that our guests enjoy!

The space

From the moment you arrive at this lovely chalet, a rustic, romantic atmosphere will surround you. Enjoy preparing meals in the fully equipped kitchen. The living area is a wonderful place to spend time as you snuggle up by the stone gas fireplace on the leather sofa or comfy recliner and enjoy a DVD on the Blue-ray player from our collection, a movie via Netflix, or your favorite TV show on the 50 inch flat screen TV. The main level also features a game room with a full size pool table and game table. Games, playing cards and puzzles are provided for your convenience. Relax and enjoy the beautiful views as you sit out on the upper deck from the rocking chairs or the porch swing. The lower level provides a romantic setting for two: Watch your favorite movies from the comfortable king size log canopy bed on the 40 inch flat screen TV above a second cozy gas fireplace. A private area with Jacuzzi tub is just off the bedroom, as well as a large master bath with an over sized shower. There is a lower deck off the bedroom area where you will enjoy spending time in a large inviting hot tub while enjoying the lights of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge by night and the aerial tram and beautiful mountain views by day.
You can plan a private cookout for two on the park-style charcoal grill located near the entry of the chalet. If you choose to go out for dinner, you will find excellent dining choices just a few miles down the mountain in downtown Gatlinburg or at Ober Gatlinburg. You may choose to drive a very short distance and park at Ober Gatlinburg and ride the Aerial Tram down the mountain to dine or shop in the many unique shops downtown. As a member of Chalet Village Owner's Club please use our membership card provided for access to three club houses on the mountain, each with pools, recreational areas and exercise equipment. This card also offers discounts at numerous attractions and restaurants in the Gatlinburg area. Please comply with our no pet policy, our two person maximum occupancy policy, and remember that this is a smoke free chalet.
Smoky Mountain High Chalet will prove to be a perfect location for your Smoky Mountain vacation!

Guest access

Our guests have private access to all of the chalet amenities listed as well as privileges offered at three Chalet Village Owner's Club locations including pools, tennis courts, exercise equipment and game rooms. Travelers also have access to all areas of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park including more than 80 hiking trails, numerous picnic areas and various seasonal programs and presentations offered free to visitors to the park by park rangers. Stop by Sugarlands Visitor Center for information about hiking trails, maps, and scheduled park sponsored events and programs.

Interaction with guests

Since this is a private chalet, we rarely get the opportunity to meet our guests in person, but we enjoy the personal touch we can offer guests via email, texts and phone conversations. It is important to us to be available to answer any questions travelers might have about the area before and during their stay. Because we are so familiar with Gatlinburg, the national park, the hiking trails and the many attractions in the area, we enjoy helping travelers with their plans when needed and making new acquaintances. Please feel free to reach out to us if we can be of help with your plans or if you have any questions.

Other things to note

We strive to include everything that our guests could desire at Smoky Mountain High Chalet. Sitting high atop the ridge, it offers views of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the Tram to the north and the majestic towering Mt LeConte through the bordering National Park to the east and south. We provide a detailed notebook for your convenience and brochures describing the many activities in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park available during your stay. We are high atop Ski Mountain near the ski resort, Ober Gatlinburg, so it is important to note that you will be traveling on mountain roads to reach our elevation. The roads are in good shape, well-traveled, well-maintained by the city of Gatlinburg and do not require a 4WD vehicle unless a winter weather event occurs before or during your stay. Should roads become snow-covered, 4WD will be necessary to navigate the mountain roads. If you are lucky enough to experience the beauty of a Smoky Mountain snowfall, enjoy the gorgeous views and fun that await you! Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort is just a mile away and the snow-capped mountains will provide a beautiful backdrop!

We had the best time at Paula and Keith's chalet! It was quiet and peaceful and the view is beautiful. The chalet was very clean and decorated in a cute bear theme. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and Paula went above and beyond to make us feel special. She made us banana nut bread (which was delicious), had a bottle of wine in the fridge, and even gave us a little gift and a card! On top of that, she was very communicative before and during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend staying here and we will be back in the future!

Our experience with Paula's chalet was, in one word, amazing. As soon as we asked to book, Paula was in contact with us and had suggestions of things to do. She kept in contact until our travel day, and checked in with us occasionally to make sure we were enjoying our stay. The cabin was definitely spacious and decorated nicely. There was everything needed to cook ourselves breakfast before we started our busy days . We enjoyed the (very) comfortable bed, pool table, and outdoor hot tub. Paula even left us some snacks - which was greatly appreciated after our drive up the mountains and when the weather got a little stormy. We were able to spend some time in Gatlinburg, ride the Tram, and go hiking (saw lots of wildlife including bears!). Would definitely stay here again to do more hiking. Thank you so much! ~Amanda and Brett

Right off the bat, you will not find a better host and chalet! Paula and her husband, Keith will go above and beyond to make your stay nothing short of magical! The chalet was beautiful - better than even the pictures! Most importantly, everywhere you looked, there was evidence of Paula's attention to detail. Upon arrival, we had wine, a loaf of yummy bread, and a wedding present. How thoughtful of our hosts...they didn't even know us! We loved everything and recommend you book this chalet immediately! :)

What kind and thoughtful comments from two very amazing guests! It was definitely our pleasure to host you both and to be able to share in the viewing of the eclipse made for an experience we will never forget! We seldom have the pleasure of meeting our guests so this was a special treat for us! What a blessing to have two new friends from upstate NY! We hope to cross paths with you again one day!

Wonderful cabin, perfect for our honeymoon. Paula went way above and beyond in every aspect. Literally thought of everything! Notes left explaining how to use everything, a binder full of information (alphabetized and all!), welcome snacks, a honeymoon gift, games, books, dvd's... She communicated with us in the days leading up to and during our stay but was not intrusive. A very thoughtful and gracious host. Highly recommend this cute cabin! It is most definitely UP in the mountains but is very close to Gatlinburg's main road. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

Response from Paula:
Thanks so much Ryan for your kind comments and for choosing to spend such a special occasion in our neck of the woods! It seems to be a perfect spot for couples who like to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown but yet want to be close enough to enjoy the great shopping and restaurants Gatlinburg has to offer. Keith and I are so pleased that you had such a nice stay and took home some wonderful memories of your Smoky Mountain honeymoon! It means a lot to us that you would like to return some day! Thanks for being wonderful guests!

After growing up in the Spartanburg/Greenville area of SC, I married my high school sweetheart and moved to Knoxville, TN. My husband began his career as an electrical engineer with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and I as an elementary school teacher in the Knox County School System. We raised our three children (who are all University of Tennessee graduates) in Knoxville and are now enjoying our new role as grandparents! We love hiking in the Smoky Mountains and enjoying the beautiful views. Our family also loves spending time together on the lake. We enjoy meeting new people and consider it an honor to share the beauty of the Smokies with our guests!
