Nice quite Chalet with a great view. Beautiful deck and plenty of privacy. Wish I had booked a longer stay.

We have loved every trip to Gatlinburg. Your properties are amazing. We were bummed when the 2 properties we stayed at before burned, but we found a new property with you that matches the others. Amazing

Had a great time and the Wanderlust had a great view

The entire experience was great - staff we spoke to before and after booking were so nice and helpful, and we didn’t have a single issue or problem at the house. Everything seemed very clean and in good shape, and we had everything we needed. Views were amazing and location was very convenient.

Beautiful home, very comfortable, great view - didn’t want to leave!! Highly recommend Chalet Village properties -have used for years and have NEVER been disappointed with staff or rentals.
Steve W. August 12, 2018
We have stayed in many Chalet Village properties and we will continue to do so. The houses are always amazing, the pictures on the website depicting each rental are spot on and the people who work for Chalet Village are so helpful and friendly. At this particular house - Wanderlust, we saw bears daily and amazing sunrises/sunsets. The Smoky Mountains are our home away from home and we look to escape by submersing ourselves in the mountains - both in where we stay and where we hike, etc. If you are looking for a true mountain experience - away from the town, traffic and people, please please consider renting from Chalet Village. They are top notch and you won't be disappointed.

This place is fantabulous. Best views in Gatlinburg, the owners have invested money in updating and keeping the property nice, it is comfortable, quiet, and picturesque.

This was the second time we stayed in this Chalet.The view is incredible,we only stayed 2 nights last year and went for 3 nights this year.I wish we could have stayed longer,This Chalet has everything you could ask for!The staff made sure we knew about the weather coming,so if you go in the winter make sure you have food,just in case!It started snowing around nine PM on Monday and we got out around four PM the next day. The driveway is very steep so we had to wait on the sun to melt the ice,The roads had been plowed so the only problem was the driveway! We still had a great time!

Beautiful chalet with glorious views. Loved everything about it!
Michael D. September 18, 2018
The cabin is over 3000ft up. It's very clean and comfortable. We had bears visit us every evening as we were grilling on the deck. This is our third time staying in this cabin and we'll be staying there again in October.
Linda A. August 15, 2018
Four of us spent 3 days and 2 nights on this wonderful chalet. We come to the mountains for R&R every 6 weeks. The hot tub, sauna and spa tubs aid in total relaxation.
Gregory D. October 28, 2017
Lovely chalet! Everthing was very clean and the kitchen was well-equipped. The view was spectacular! It was so peaceful sitting on the deck looking at the mountains in the daylight and the city lights at night. Directions on how to use the thermostat would have been helpful as it was not obvious how to adjust it. We plan to come back to this chalet next year!
Tammy W. November 19, 2016
Disappointed that the gas grill had no gas. We didn't cook til late and we wasn't aware we could call office. Told person who was manitance said no gauge. I fee at $270. A nite that was no excuse they should have check this before renting.

My family and I really enjoyed our week long stay at Wanderlust. Everything about the chalet was awesome! The chalet was very clean and had everything you would need. The beds were super comfortable. The hot tub was very relaxing after a long day of walking around Gatlinburg or hiking. We also enjoyed seeing all the wildlife. We saw bears multiple times, from the safety of the decks. I would highly recommend this chalet to anyone, from families to couples.

We decided to spend a weekend getaway in the Smokies.
After having a big let down from another well known rental company we chose to cancel our reservation and come to Chalet Village rentals. They were able to accommodate us with this beautiful cabin on a Holiday Weekend.
A real life saver. The view is spectacular, good amenities. It is a little bit of a drive to town through the mountains but the view and solitude was worth it.

Check in and out was fast and easy, helpful staff. Our cabin, Wanderlust, was very nice, stunning view. Will definitely be back and stay with Chalet Village again!

I have stayed in at least 11 cabins/chalets through this company since 1977. This particular house is my all time favorite. The view is of a long range of mountains, with Pigeon Forge and areas of Chalet Village closer to give the perspective of being very, very high. The house if full of windows and at night the view becomes magical. I have stayed in cabins that were more decorated and kitschy, but the focus of this chalet is THE VIEW. Every time I walk through the front door of this place I think "This should be mine." There is daylight throughout, and at night I leave most lights off in order to drink in the view. It just has a feeling of being on top of the world. I have been there twice at the end of October, and this last time in mid-April. It snowed all three times!

This is our 4th yr. at Wanderlust for Thanksgiving. View is Outstanding!! Always a great time. Updates are very nice. Plenty of dishes and utensils if you want to cook. Zero complaints. Be back next year.
Brian T. February 10, 2017
This is the second time we have stayed at Wanderlust (2318) in the Chalet Village community. The staff has always been helpful and friendly. The house was very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

Wonderful views on top of ski mountain road. We always rented a cabin with a hot tub ,but the sauna was an added bonus. Full updated chalet with all modern conveniences. Sometimes WiFi has been a little sketchy in other rentals but no problems here. This was important for my husband’s job! I must admit I was a little skittish going up and down the mountain especially since we received about 3 or 4 inches while we were there and downtown Gatlinburg didn’t receive any! That was on October 29th!You would really need a 4 wheel drive if visiting anytime from Late October through the winter months! But I’m not complaining! The snow and the views were breathtaking!! We have rented from other companies but Chalet Village is still our favorite. The rentals and the customer service are unmatched! We have been renting from them since our honeymoon over 30 years ago!! Highly recommend this rental and Chalet Village!

The chalet was a replacement for the one we usually stay in (burned in the fire). This different one has a great view and very quiet. The only problem we was which really isn't a problem it was very high up driving. Overall it was great!
Michael D. September 19, 2017
Very nice cabin. This is our second time staying here. Well equipped with everything you need. Beds are very comfortable. Upstairs bedroom is huge. large deck with a great view. We will definitely rent this cabin again.
Anonymous September 15, 2017
Was nice modern home. Had everything you needed and more. Couch and Love seat not very comfortable, but we were out most of the day so it didn't matter. Very difficult to get to , straight up the mountain, but the view was worth it. Being so high up you have to deal with the wind and fog. Get in before dark driving in dark up the mountain was hard.
Charles A. March 14, 2017
This was our 3rd stay with Chalet Village in four months!The Chalet had a resent renovation and was gorgeous,everything clean and no problems.The view was something that you will have to see!The Chalet is above 3,000 feet!I watched a plane land at the Sevierville airport about 10 miles away. Great time and no problems we will be back!

We rented Rhett & Scarlett for a few days through New Year's Day and it was a wonderful time. The chalet had just about everything you would need - linens, towels, pots, pans, flatware, boardgames (oldies but goodies), stereos. It was very clean, pretty big (as advertised), comfy and cozy. This chalet was at the top of the mountain and next to the ski resort so we did hear the snow making machines when we went onto the deck. The drive up to the mountain was pretty challenging and that was in pretty good driving conditions. I would most definitely check the weather and make sure you have 4wd if you plan to get up there in snowy/wet/icy conditions. Our only two complaints - the water pressure in the kitchen sink was awful and made it difficult to really wash dishes and the charcoal grill outside needed a deep cleaning before use. Other than that this was a great cabin and we highly recommend it. We will definitely be returning.

We make several trips to Gatlinburg each year and usually stay in a chalet. This chalet was far the best ever. Wonderful view, home-like atmosphere. The only complaint I have is the chalet is located so far up the mountain and it snowed the night before we left and the roads were icy. It was nerve racking getting back to Ski Mountain Road where everything was clear. We would definitely stay here again.
Janan G. November 16, 2015
This chalet is very high up and has a gorgeous view. Very open and roomy. Negatives would be that the property is for sale & concerns probably won't be addressed. Recliner in living room has been removed. Handle on Microwave was broken and held together with duct tape. A little disconcerting as we had signed a waver and had no idea prior to arriving.
House was very clean and has a new gas grill on deck. We enjoyed our stay and would return.
James B. May 2, 2017
This was one of the nicest chalets we have ever rented and we do Gatlinburg 2-3x per year. The Chalets is well laid out, nicely equipped and in good shape. The view is incredible and plenty of parking. This chalet is worth every penny.
Mary B. June 23, 2015
Great house. Incredible view. Awesome bears! Comfortable beds. Uncomfortable furniture in living room.

We had a wonderful time and can't thank you enough. We needed a break from life and definitely got that.

We stayed at the rental for 2 days in November. The chalet was as described and pictures really didn't do it justice. We located the location and the view was amazing. The hot tub was great. It was hot(unlike some where we have stayed) like it should be. It was wonderful being in the tub while there was snow on the deck and air crisp and cold. A few things need to be addressed about the rental - the sheets were not big enough and wouldn't stay on the bed. When the fireplace was on the smell of gas was strong. Also, there needs to be current instructions on how to use remotes for TV. The instructions there were not up to date. All this said we would not hesitate to stay there again. Loved it. The management at Chalet Village was professional and friendly.

The trip was perfect. Chalet Village worked with us because of the weather, but when we got there on Wednesday in came the snow so it was picture perfect. The views were amazing. The chalet was very clean, plenty of room for 2 couples. This would be the perfect place to stay regardless of the season. We have stayed in many chalets over the years and this was by far the best. Highly recommended
Regina N. March 16, 2015
We had a very relaxing wonderful stay.
Doug P. March 24, 2015
A wonderful vacation. Four bears showed up for entertainment while enjoying the hot tub ! Beautiful, spacious and clean place.
Anonymous June 7, 2015
We, family of 4 adults, spent 3 days in the mountains and had a very good time. The chalet was very nice, neat and had all the necessary things you need away from home. We had a compact car so the road was sometimes scary, but it was manageable. View is gorgeous. Saw a mother bear with her cubs which was quite a sight. One critical comment: used to southern hospitality and friendliness we experienced the reception by the ladies in the chalet village office as very formal. Although we arrived in bad weather no friendly conversation whatsoever. BTW it could be useful to have a handbook with instructions for appliances, alarm.

Good view! Furniture a little old. Tube TV in bedrooms. All the steps caused my wife to fall. Had 3 bears get in my car after I unlocked it. Bears opened doors like they were about to go for a ride! No damage. Was a long way up to the chalet. Overall it was not bad.

A delightful and relaxing 2 week stay in the amazing Smoky Mountains! Wanderlust is a 5 star home and Chalet Cillage is the best rental company out there! We will be back for our 8th year in 2017.

My only complaint is the cleanliness of the chalet. The big jacuzzi tub upstairs has a brown ring around it. I cleaned that off and it was fine. A lot of the dishware was dirty. But besides that everything else was awesome had great views we will definitely be back again.

If you like being really high up you will love this view and location
Lots of extras in the house that made it comfortable like wifi and coffee maker provided

This is the second time we have stayed in this chalet. It has all the comforts of home and then some.
Melissa K. April 18, 2016
Beautiful view and clean home. The dishwasher & the hot tub didn't work but other than that it was clean & up to date. The road to the house was scary and very high. We needed to return daily before 6:00pm to ensure to see the roads for safety. One night we got back late and nearly got run off the road.
Joan E S. October 29, 2015
Amazing view. The very winding road made the trip up and down the mountain exciting especially in the fog. Didn't spend much time at the chalet.
Brian T. February 10, 2016
This is truly a well kept secret nestled in one of the most beautiful settings! It was amazing waking up to the expansive view every morning and watching the mountains change color as the sun moved and set. The features of the house made it so that you really didn't even want to leave. Price was decent in the off-season. The only negative would be the mattresses. Both beds were king size which is a plus but both mattresses were very hard, and I mean very hard. Bring a pillow-top mattress pad! I'll definitely rent this house again!

We had a wonderful time and loved Rhett and Scarletts Hideaway. The view we had was AWESOME, although I would suggest cutting down the one tree that is way too tall blocking the view. The biggest complaint we had was that the not all the features on the hot tub worked (blowers and lights). The microwave could be replaced since it was held together with duct tape. We found out the hard way that you need to follow the directions to the cabin that the rental office supplies. Our first night there the roads were pretty wet with a lot of downed leaves. We were following our GPS (I was told by the rental office the GPS would get us there) and it wanted to take us up a road that was breaking up and very steep. We could not get to the cabin and ended up getting a hotel room in town for the night. The next day we followed the printed directions the rental office gave us and had no problems. Just wish we had used those directions the first night. Overall we really enjoyed the cabin and would recommend it to anyone who wants to be up high in the mountain and wants to have a spectacular view.
