Views are gorgeous from the 3rd floor of the building along with plenty of rooms and bathrooms. The drive to the cabin is very scenic. Word of advice, if you have never driven around the great smokey mountains, you will need to learn when booking this as you will have steep grades, switchbacks and blind corners when traversing ski mountain. The cabin was great! Bring pillows if you dont like firm pillows. I would book again.
The Owl's Nest Chalet has a great view and was well kept.
It has a great deck with a nice hot tub.
We saw a bear family every day.
The owls nest was perfect we had lots of fun good view of the mountains was a good home away from everyone enjoyed it was a wonderful place to stay .
The view was incredible, amazing hot tub and really comfy beds with lots of extra pillows. The driveway was a little terrifying and steep though
My daughter found this cabin for our getaways & we all just absolutely love it! We have stayed twice so far, and travel back in for an amazing 2 week stretch in July. On our recent visit I noticed Carol had added a foam topper to bed downstairs. Made it so comfy. Hard to get up now! The place itself is always so clean, well stocked & comfortable. Its decorated so cozy. The drive up the mountain is not intense in my opinion. We love that the ober tram runs by the cabin, and ober itself is only a 5 min ride from the cabin. One day was very sunny on the deck, and Carol ran us by an umbrella to use with the patio set. Fantastic owners. We slept 7 comfortably. In the downstairs room there was a spare cot that could be moved. And another cot in the loft area. The loft area was neat as well and had a computer available for use. The upstairs bedroom is very roomy with 2 queen sized sleigh beds. My daughter said both the cot & beds upstairs were very comfy. We love the bears the most & have seen some come right onto the deck each visit. There are also 3 public pools in the area to choose from for swimming. That amenity is amazing with the grandkids. The hot tub at night was our favorite. We would have a glass of wine & just stare at mt leconte. This is our favorite cabin & where our grandkids will remember their smoky mountain summers. That's special to me being that I am a Gatlinburg native. Cannot wait to be there in July. And cannot say enough nice things about the owls nest chalet or it's owners.
Stayed here based on a recommendation from a fb group from a previous guest a few months back. I believe her name was Sara. Maybe Susan. She included a link and photos from her stay. It looked so nice, and we were not disappointed. It was as amazing as described. Plenty of room for 5 people. The hot tub was so very relaxing. Fireplace was a nice touch. Kitchen was fully stocked. Cabin was very clean. It was decorated well and we felt very comfy and at home. Ober is just 5 minutes away. I suggest being sure you lock your doors and secure the trash can well. Lots of bears. So glad I saw the recommendation. We will be back!
This place had a beautiful view and more than enough space to comfortably fit our family of 6. The fireplace and hot tub were great bonuses. A table that all six of us could sit around was fantastic. If I could have given the place a 4.5, I would have. The dishwasher was extremely loud and was missing the front cover. It cleaned the dishes, so it was fine, but it would have been more frustrating if we had stayed longer than 2 nights. Judging by the way the place is maintained, I would imagine that will be replaced soon. The showers were a little dated, but clean and got the job done. We would definitely stay again. Highly recommend!!
