This place is awesome - it was such a blessing to find it! We have a large family with young children and loved the huge size of the 3BR chalet that we stayed in. It was sooo big that we didn't even use the upstairs. It was very clean too. It has very nice rustic country decor with a fireplace. The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you need, and it even has a washer and dryer. The jacuzzi on the porch along with the rocking chairs provided hours of relaxation while admiring God's magnificent creation. The view is stunning, and there are pretty walking trails. The water in the pool was warmer than any place we've stayed and we had it to ourselves. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They even set up the fire pit for a fun evening of s'mores and volleyball. This would be a perfect place for a family reunion or group get together.
It is very close to town (across from Dollywood), but secluded, peaceful and quiet. I couldn't ask for anything better.
