If you're not used to driving in the mountains a lot, the drive alone is pretty spectacular! The house is gorgeous, has everything you might need and felt like home instantly. Getting something from your car at night might not be the best of ideas (bear...). Laundry detergent would have been nice as would a manual for the hot tub (way too hot for us). Let's say (for our family of three) a 9.5 out of a 10!
Beautiful views, comfortable chalet, easy location, abundance of wildlife including black bears.. Highly recommended for family, friends ,couples etc.. You will not be disappointed.
We had stayed here before and loved it so we decided to bring along some extended family this time. They loved it as well! Carol and Tim are super nice and easy to work with. The place has a great view while still being close enough to town. We had a great time and would recommend this place to anyone! Thank again!
Amazing mountain view of the national park, the pictures on this website don't do it justice. Adorable house. Kitchen and main room well-decorated and updated. Bathrooms and bedrooms slightly dated but house is clean and has everything you need. There's even wifi and the TV can connect to Netflix, Hulu, Youtube etc.
Hot tub is great, best place to start the day. Easy to use and instructions are available.
Good air conditioning.
There's a big stone fireplace in the main room.
Owners replied very quickly when we needed them.
Location was good, steep roads obviously but only minutes from Gatlinburg and extremely close to Ober Gatlinburg so you can park there and take the tram down into town. We even managed to grab one of the rare ubers in the area and the ride to town was less than $7!
The only downside is this was my third visit to Gatlinburg and I've still never seen a bear!!!
We enjoyed our stay very much. The chalet was comfortable but was outdated and kitchen poorly stocked. Other than that beautiful area
We had a great three day weekend at owls nest everything was clean and tidy and our grandkids loved sitting on the deck and watching the trams go by. We would definitely stay again only next time a full week is in order!
This two bedroom chalet was very comfortable and spacious. We loved eating breakfast on the deck with the view of the mountains and enjoyed the hot tub as well. It was very clean, well-equipped and the owners communicated all details to us in a timely manner.
My only advice would be to not arrive for the first time at night. The ski mountain road up to this community is not for the faint of heart and getting into the driveway for the cabin (parallel to the road) is tricky, especially in the dark. Once you get used to it, it's fine. Just try to arrive for the first time during the daylight hours.
