    Great location, close to downtown Gatlinburg. Rooms not as large as listing photos make it appear. Parking is tight for 4 vehicles. Plan to bring additional kitchen towels, garbage bags, soap, toilet paper and dishwasher pods. There are no potholders. Minor maintenance issues that need addressed and a little TLC and place would be much better. Local property management quick to respond to concerns.

    We recently stayed at the “Chic Chalet” with a group of friends. The property was clean and well maintained. The check in and check out was well defined and smooth!! What did not meet my expectations is that in the pictures the property looked lot bigger than it actually is. The floor plan was not very open, the patio wasn't very big either. The game room is small, the arcade games didn't work for us. The kitchen is tiny. Nevertheless we had fun and will recommend to parties who don't need a lot of space!!

    The house was ok but not as clean as most we have stayed in. One of or ladies got locked in the downstairs bathroom and we had to use a credit card on door to get her out as the door latch did not work. Called management for wash clothes and dish towels as we had none and were told they would be there next morning but never showed up. The view was amazing and we did have a good time, but it was not the best rental experience.

    The large common spaces are perfect for big groups. We could easily fit 8 around the kitchen table and in the living room, and even in the hot tub! This was the best part about this place. The view is also gorgeous. The a/c also worked well, and I appreciated that most rooms had a fan you could plug in. Cons: place had a few cleanliness issues when we got there, and was missing some basic things, like bath mats in the bathrooms. Refrigerator is failing, so host has instructions about only placing 12 cans in at a time to chill and being slow to add things in general. Seems ridiculous to not just buy a new fridge! Hopefully with an ice maker— the current one doesn't include one. The description says that staples are provided for the kitchen, but it had literally nothing—- no salt and pepper, oil, coffee, sugar... nothing. It was well-stocked with pots, pans, utensils, and tableware, though.

    Hi Samantha, We are glad to hear that this vacation home was perfect for you and your group! The homeowner appreciates your feedback and will speak with their cleaning crew to ensure that small items like the bath mats will not be missed moving forward. We'd also like to clarify that we do not advertise that the kitchen is stocked with cooking supplies, and travelers can see in the amenities section before they book that essentials are not provided. Most cleaning services will remove all food items in between guests to avoid any safety concerns. Thank you for letting us know about your stay, and we hope to travel with you again soon!

    Great house for family reunion

    The house was great! Everything was as described. If staying for an extended period of time, I do recommend bringing some additional towels. There is a washer and dryer, but they're pretty small, so the loads will have to be as well. We do wish that the Donkey Kong game console was working. It would have been a lot of fun. Also, make sure your breaks are in good condition before driving up. It is a steep journey up the mountain, and you will have to use them excessively when traveling up and down the mountain. There is a convenient store at the bottom of the mountain that has your basics, but I also recommend grocery shopping prior to arriving so that you won't have to spend your vacation fighting traffic to get to the closest grocery store. I would definitely book this location again. We created many new memories during our stay!

    Great size, game room was awesome. Could use more bedding.
    Owner needs to review housekeeping service-place was filthy. Tops of headboards on bed, pictures, cabinets appear to never have been dusted. Food, trash under couches. Mold and mildew in showers.
    Fix the downstairs bathroom door already...people have been commenting about it here in TA. It locks people in...if my nieces didn’t have cell phones, we wouldn’t have known they were there..it’s not a new problem and when someone breaks the door down, don’t be surprised!
    Do not let new drivers tackle the hill leading up here...

    Please read this whole review before booking. I hope that this will help future renter's have a more positive experience than we did.

    We had our yearly Easter trip to Gatlinburg this year with all of our friends. We picked this house because the pictures made it look phenomenal, and the price point was perfect for us. Let me start out by saying that the drive up to this house absolutely sucks.... But the view you get makes the drive 100% worth it. The view of the city and the mountains is probably the best thing about this place. We woke every morning with breathtaking views. We even got to see snow on Mount Le Conte. It was gorgeous!! I sat out in the hot tub one night and got to listen to the wildlife around the mountains. Something was moving below the decks, probably a raccoon or deer by the sound of it, and some coyotes started howling on the mountain next to us. It was amazing to be able to see the city but not have to hear all of the hustle and bustle of being there. I did like some of the updates the owners had done. The bathrooms, for the most part, were very nice. The furniture was appropriately sized for the space and fit everyone we had with us perfectly. The size of the bedrooms was nice, and accommodated us perfectly. The pictures in the preview make it seem rather confusing, but once you're in the house it makes perfect sense, and lays out fairly nicely.

    There were plenty of positives to this property, but with the positives there are always negatives. I'm going to explain each in a bullet point fashion, as it will help point out the biggest issues and hopefully help future renter's prepare more than we did.
    -The front door wouldn't open or lock easily. We had used the code given to us, and heard the lock attempt to move, but wouldn't unlock. I tried several times, my husband tried several times before I started making a call to the guest contact. They didn't pick up until the THIRD time I called, which is when we finally got the door to open. He said he would send maintenance out in the morning, but no one ever showed up.
    -We walked around the property and noticed the floor was a little wavy in spots, and there were major signs of settling that were starting to cause problems with the doors in the rest of the house. The bathroom in the hallway upstairs wouldn't open once it was shut, and same with the bathroom in the hallway downstairs. We were afraid we might have to break them in order to get out of the bathroom. Thankfully we were able to get out of the bathrooms without having to break them, but afterwards the handles wouldn't turn properly so we just had to push the doors to in order to have some privacy.
    -When we walked out on the deck we noticed a terrible lean to it. It freaked us out a little. The upper deck leans worse than the lower deck, but the both had several weak points as we walked across them. I highly suggest that the owners have it inspected for how sound it is, or better yet, just replace them and make sure they're level.
    -Upon being on the deck, we also noticed trees growing from the gutters. Yes, you read that right, TREES growing from the gutters. They desperately need to be cleaned.
    -We tested out the hot tub a little just to see how it worked. The buttons were terribly worn and didn't always want to work. To get the jets to work, you really had to smash the button. The light button barely worked at all and when it did work it was like sitting in a rave with how much they flashed. Its a good thing none of us have epilepsy.
    -Upon inspecting the kitchen I found lots of dishes, which was great because we had lots of people. But, one of the shelves needs to be fixed, as it will probably break soon because it has too much weight on it.
    -In the kitchen, the pots and pans given, though in abundance, were absolutely crappy. I've gotten better from cheaper and smaller places. Sauce pans should not be the only option just because its the cheapest. They are meant for making sauces, not everyday cooking.
    -In the email I received before coming there was something about "essentials" in the kitchen like foil, coffee filters, etc. There were NONE! I had to go buy some, which I graciously left for the next person in hopes that they won't be heartbroken like I was about not having them and having to use a paper towel as a make-shift coffee filter. There was no foil anywhere in the kitchen. There was a cabinet at the end across from the fridge that I would have thought would have all of these so called "essentials" but it was empty.
    -The salt and pepper shakers are literally just for show. The pepper shaker doesn't even have a bottom on it. We left the shakers we bought so hopefully the next people will have something to use rather than having to go out and buy them like we did.
    -There was no scrubbing pads in the kitchen in order to clean dishes. I know rags were provided, but that doesn't help when you've burnt something on to a pan and need to get it off. You can get $1 Brillo pads from the Dollar Tree in Pigeon Forge, please invest in them.
    -They only provide ONE SMALL packet of dishwasher detergent. It won't last the whole trip. The dishwasher is crappy anyway, so you'll have to hand wash before putting them in the dishwasher to ensure they get clean. But they could have provided more than just the one little packet of detergent.
    -They only provided two trash bags for the whole place. Thankfully we didn't have to replace any of the bathroom trash cans, but only two, especially for the big trash can just outside the kitchen was ridiculous. There should have been a small roll provided for such a large place.
    -In the email I received it stated that trash pickup was on Friday and Monday. There was no pickup on Friday. We had to shove everything in the small bins until Monday and I hope they were able to get everything out.
    -The table was perfect to fit everyone we had, but one of the chairs was broken so we didn't want to sit in it and make it worse or fully break it. The bench is a great seating option for lots of people, but it really needs a support in the middle of it, we were afraid it might break eventually.
    -A lot of the outlets in the house were very loose. This can prove to be a fire hazard if not taken care of quickly.
    -The Theater room downstairs was great, but would have been even better if the system for the surround sound was there. The cords for the hook up were there but there was no system for them to hook into. A theater room with no surround sound is just sad. Not to mention, the fact that it was very confusing to try to use since each remote seemed to have one specific function that was a mystery to all of us.
    -The water pressure was great downstairs, but sucked for the rest of the house.
    -I understand that the towels that are provided are cheap, but there needed to be more than two per room. It also felt like I was drying off with sandpaper when using them.
    -We had to go purchase more toilet paper for the whole house because there were only two rolls per bathroom.

    I know that some of the stuff near the bottom was petty, but it is something that the owners really need to take into consideration in order to provide the best possible experience to all of their guests. I hope this review will help the owners as well as future renters.

    This was my 2nd time staying at this Chalet. The 1st time, my group complained that the gaming system did not work - It still isn't working! This is a big deal because we like to get away from "real" life and enjoy ourselves! The property was not cleaned like it should have been. There were dirty towels and mattress pads left in the closets, food particles in the freezer along with dirty ice, and the place needed a good dusting.
    Most importantly, there was a mini fire - it appears as if is was the 2nd one! In the bedroom downstairs, the electric wall heater caused a fire and scorched the wall. My husband immediately pulled the heater off the wall, but the smell was horrible for 2 days! We noticed in the theater room there was another scorch mark on the wall, but no heater. I called and spoke with someone, and no one EVER called me back. However, the next day, someone came in while we were gone - unannounced, and left another heater. I would NOT recommend this chalet if they are not going to resolve an issue or get back with you in a timely manner. As stated before, we were all very disappointed!

    We had a great family vacation in Gatlinburg. The view from the back of the chalet was great with a good view of Ober Gatlinburg. The chalet itself was very average and needs a lot of updating. We have stayed in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge in chalets and cabins before and this was the worst. The furniture is old, the fixtures are old and the carpet needs replacing. We did not let this spoil our trip however. Again, the view was great but if you are looking for a nice clean, modern cabin, look elsewhere !!

    This house is beautiful. We had plenty of room for multiple families. Every night we watched movies downstairs in the theater room (we brought our own). We also enjoy the use of the pool table.

The other reviews are correct in saying that the heat downstairs doesn’t work well. One bedroom gets hot and the other is cold. The pool table area doesn’t get heat at all. This did not keep us from enjoying the wonderful space however. We had a blast at the Ober resort, downtown Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge. Thank you for sharing your home!

    Everyone loved the view. Several beds good use a new mattress. And many windows need new blinds. The kids loved the TV room and ping pong table. Kept them busy between our trips to Dollywood, rafting and hiking in the Smokies. All families from FL, CO and VA loved the trip. Reviewer location Sarasota, Florida

    Beautiful View of the Mountains

    Reviewed by: Erin K on

    Comment:

    If your biggest priority is a great view of the mountains and close to downtown Gatlinburg, this is the place for you! The rental company was easy to work with. The seven bedrooms are all laid out nicely, and the upper and lower decks are great places to sit and relax. There was some 'wear and tear' in the house such as holes in some bedding and mildew on grout in the showers, but for the most part it was clean and well maintained. We had an issue with the grill and called about it in the morning and by the afternoon someone had come out to fix it. Something very fun was that we saw bears at 4 different times during our stay, just outside our cabin. However, a concern was the lock didn't work from the outside, so when we all left the cabin, it was unlocked. We were warned how good the bears are at getting into cars, etc. for food and were a bit concerned a bear may try to enter the house. Thank goodness that didn't happen...but I sure wish they would fix the lock issue ASAP.

    Great time

    Had a great time and house worked out great. Plenty of space in the house, and decks, game room, living room, dining area, and movie room were outstanding. The view was incredible as well. The outdoor grill worked, but was dated and one set of burners was broken. Also, it ran off propane tank whereas the house overview states the grill runs off a gas line from the house. One last minor detail was the living room blinds were warped and a little difficult to raise up and down, but that's nitpicking, I know. Overall, loved our stay, and would definitely come back and stay again in the future.

    The house is beautiful and very spacious. We chose to stay here because it was plenty of room for both my family and my husband's side of the family as well. We had a couple of minor issues but nothing major. There was no dish soap to wash dishes (like I said nothing major), the games in the arcade room shown in the photos do not work but we knew that after reading the previous reviews from others that stayed before us. The downstairs shower I felt could have been cleaned a little better and the toilet down there constantly ran. The blue ray player in the theater room did not work luckily we brought our own just in case. Other than that everything was great. I loved getting up in the morning and taking my coffee on the back deck and watching the sun rise. I loved how high up it was because the scenery is breathtaking. Perfect location, not in town but not too far from Gatlinburg or pigeon forge. :-)

    The home is beautiful, the views are breathtaking and the location is far enough away to enjoy privacy yet close enough to access lots of entertainment. The beds were super comfortable. We had parking space enough for 5 vehicles. The theatre room was a big plus and we used it well. We do have some suggestions. It may be better to delete any pictures or mention of the video arcade game seeing it does not work. The property would present as emaculant if your housekeeping team would pay attention to detail. The scuff marks on some walls, the rug under the dining table, the streaks left behind on the bathroom mirrors, the drips of food or whatever seen on the white banister that goes upstairs and the spills clearly visible on the sofa closest to the front door. Presentation is everything. Have your maintenance check your grill. We had a hard time using it and only 2 burners worked. Overall, our stay was enjoyable.

    My family gathered here for a reunion. We had 12 adults and 4 small children. The house is great, laid out well and comfortable. Great decks, hot tub, beautiful views! We had problems with some housekeeping issues, some of which were resolved, and some not. The hot tub was not functioning until the third day into our visit, which was disappointing; however, when up and running, all enjoyed. Movie room great, too.

    My four friends go on an annual writing retreat and have used VRBO to book our retreat for 3 consecutive years. This is by far the best looking property that we have ever stayed in. The rooms were large, there is an amazing game room and an additional home theater that we used almost daily. The two patios offer a wonderful view of the mountains. So it is so sad that our week vacation was marred by the management company who really could not address some fundamental issues such as no connectivity to the internet, lack of cable in one bedroom, and a hot tub that needed cleaning but then turned out to have a blown motor.We arrived on a Friday, contacted the management company who turns out to just be the cabin cleaners and therefore could not assist with internet/cable issues. They came out Saturday and said the motor was broken and he would return with a new part--and then we never saw or heard from him or his company again--and he was the owner! We called repeatedly and the calls went to voicemail. We called VRBO and asked them to contact the management company and then THEY never called us back. We ended up acting as the management company and calling Spectrum cable ourselves to set up an appointment to have both repaired (no it wasn't a matter of plugging or unplugging). Unfortunately it was on the downside of our trip but...hey internet is over-rated when you are sitting at the top of a gorgeous mountain!Oh well, we didn't allow the cabin cleaners or VRBOs lack of response to both of our phone calls to destroy our week. It's a beautiful house but you may want to avoid it if you expect working cable, internet and a hot tub...or people who call you back.

    We just spent New Year's weekend here and had a wonderful time! We had 7 families and we never felt like we were in each other's way. The beds were comfortable and the view was amazing. The decor is very tasteful and modern. We actually managed to park 7 cars, most of them vans or SUVs, in the driveway. The only suggestion I have really is to stock a few more linens. The kitchen did not have enough dish towels and it did not have any pot holders. We could have used a few more bath towels as well. Would definitely rent again!
