“Pros and Cons of Destiny”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

My husband and I just got back from staying at Destiny for 3 nights and were given a very fair rate. The house itself is among the nicest rentals in Gatlinburg, with a security system, astonishing views, outdoor hot tub and 2 indoor jacuzzis, and the furnishings are both stylish and comfortable. The house does not have wi-fi, per the owner's request, according to the rental company, so be prepared to take your laptop with you to the Starbucks down on the strip if you need to check your email. Also, both of the bedrooms, while lavishly appointed, are down a flight of 17 stairs, as is the washer and dryer. I just thought it should be made aware to those who may have mobility issues; it was hard on my husband who is recovering from knee surgery and had to find different chairs and couches on the main level for sleeping on, after struggling with the stairs the first night. If this is not an issue and the lack of wi-fi is also not a problem, then Destiny will be perfect for those of you in this group.

We love staying in Chalet Village! This was a last minute Thanksgiving idea and one of the very last chalets left for good reason. I was extremely disappointed. The pull out sofa couch had a hole with stuffing coming out literally and the maintenance man told me the owner knew about it and hadnt even bothered to have it replaced or mended. Missing blinds,no curtain on front entrance door leaving you exposed,broken blinds,romote controls not working,etc... I guess I learned a valuable lesson on planning ahead. All our other chalets have been awesome. We will definately be back but not ever to this chalet.

My mom, sister and I stayed in #866 Leconte's Misty Glow (I think)....we had a great time. Chalet Village is the only rental agency that we use, and with good reason. The homes are always clean, & if there is an issue it's always handled promptly and professionally.
We love staying in their homes! Thanks for doing such an awesome job~~

Out of the 5 cabins/chalets in which I have stayed, this one has the most spectacular view. More importantly, it is designed to allow the occupants to see outside from almost every corner of the place. My retired pilot husband estimates we could see 40 miles to the north/northeast. Due to all these windows, the house was never dark or dim - even when we were socked in with fog or snow. From the decks, one can see the Ober Gatlinburg Tram through the trees, but well below the level of the chalet. The home is 3 levels, with the hot tub on the bottom level deck, protected above by the upper deck. At that level is a room with a pool table & futon, full bathroom, and laundry room with a full size washer and dryer. The level of the main entrance has a sunken living room, dining room, kitchen, half-bath, & guest room with full bath. Top level is the room with the jacuzzi tub/sauna, master bedroom and bath (loft-style). The drive up is steep, and the driveway off of the cul-de-sac does slope down toward the house. But it is short, and our 6 cylinder rental handled it on the wet leaves & snow with some finessing. We arrived to weather in the 70's, then had 2 days of dense fog, followed by 2 days of snow related to Hurricane Sandy, and then temps in the 40's to 60's. The house stayed warm with no drafts. The chalet is not new, but the kitchen is updated and the carpet is new. The master bath has plenty of counter space, and a linen closet with plenty of shelves. Lots of drawer space. We did cook out on the grill before the weather changed, and saw two bears wander below from the hot tub that very night. Fortunately, the decks cannot be reached by anything on the ground. We stayed a week, and left only because someone had already reserved it well ahead of me. This is definitely a good spot for a longer stay, and the view is worth every penny. And as usual, dealing with Chalet Village Properties was as effortless this year as it has been every time we have stayed. As we "shopped for" other rentals on the mountain, I only made note of the ones that were offered by Chalet Village. Hope to be back next year.

Room Tip: The higher up the mountain, the trickier the drive. And if you are near the top of the mountain, re...

It was amazing trip. 8 nights with lots to do and relax. The drive up the mountain to the cabin was scary at first but you get used to it. Cabin was very clean and decorated very nice. Loved the views from all the rooms. Pool table was great. The hot tub outside with the views are amazing. Our first day a big bear and three cubs walked right by the cabin and down the drive. Don't get any better then that.. The cabin was well equipped. Washer dry is nice we didn't use it but nice to have. We had our honeymoon in Gatlinburg and then for our 10th anniversary . This was our 20th anniversary and our third trip. Love the place so much will be back sooner.

Great stay, awesome views, great staff, lots of wildlife, and a clean and cozey caben are the words I would use to describe our stay. My wife and I could not have asked for better. The place was secluded but still only a few minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. Had a friendly little bear walk right up to our cabin. He sat, leaning against the rustic fence and enjoyed our morning with us. Only complaint is that the pool table is set up in a way that makes it difficult to play. Would probably be better if it was turned the other way.

Room Tip: This place would be good for a couple or someone with just one or two children.

We stayed in chalet 909 and what a nice place to stay. The place is even nicer than the pictures! We have gone to the Smokey's for 18 yrs. and this was the cleanest cabin we have stayed in. Plenty of room for 2. It is a pet friendly chalet and I was hesitant on reserving it, however, we could not tell there was ever a pet there. Very clean. Kitchen was well stocked also. Gas grill came in handy too. Best hot tub we have ever had also. I can not say enough. If you are looking for a nice getaway... Chalet 909 will not disappoint you!! Hated to leave.
