We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the mountains. The chalet lived up to our full expectations and was very relaxing. Perfect size for a family of four. The views were impeccable. Very cozy and felt like home.

As always we thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay in your chalet.

We arrived around 5:30 in the evening and everything was ready and in place. The cabin was very clean (something I'm picky about). The hot tub was cleaned and running and ready to go. The beds were actually very comfortable, which was nice after driving all day.
The wi-fi was appreciated by the kids and there was even a PS2 (an unexpected surprise). We saw 5 bears while we were there and used the charcoal grill and hot tub each evening.
The drive way is steep so it might be hard in the winter without a 4 wheel drive vehicle but our van handled it fine in the rain.

We had a fantastic week in Chalet Village. The location was great right between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and it was a nice retreat at the end of the day. We loved that we could see fireworks every evening. We were entertained by a family of bears while the cubs played in the road near the house. The house was well maintained and perfect for our family! The driveway was a bit tricky as it was steep and turning around with the daunting side of the mountain was adventuresome!
Rachel S. July 18, 2018
Absolutely amazing! The view was astonishing and at night you can sit in the hot tub and watch Dollywood set off their fireworks!
Al M. August 29, 2018
Fabulous The most beautiful place we've stayed The views are breathtaking and the peace and tranquility unexplainable Definitely rent this place if you're going to the mountains Can't wait till next year!!!!
Angela W. June 10, 2018
Loved the house. It had great views of the mountains. House was very clean and decorated nicely. Enjoyed the hot tub and grilling area. We even saw a bear just down the road from us one morning. A very peaceful setting. I would recommend
Robert B. April 10, 2018
Wow is all I can say about this super cute chalet. The views from every window and deck were amazing. We had bears on the front deck within the first few hours of our cool ,think they were the welcoming crew. Beds are super comfy and place was spotless. Our son loved the 2 hot tubs what a view from both , and you cant beat grilling steaks on Easter Sunday with that view . Thanks to the staff of Chalet Village from making our time up here perfect. We will be back.
Susanna B. May 3, 2018
Clean, quiet, peaceful, private. Outstanding views from the house and hot tub b. Had everything we needed for our stay. Steep roads and driveway, but not a pretty blemish in good weather. Would stay here again.
Pamela P. May 15, 2018
We absolutely loved our stay at Bare Neccessties! The cabin was very clean with an amazing view. Can’t wait until we can come back!
Jessica P. July 10, 2018
Beautiful little cabin tucked away in the mountains 15 mins downtown Gatlinburg. You couldn't get a better view. The cabin was spotless, very cozy and very quiet. We could very easily stay at this cabin again.

Quiet, relaxing and very enjoyable.
Saw 4 bears, including 2 cubs the first day there just outside our rental.
Anonymous August 1, 2016
This rental was beautiful and definitely not "Bare" necessities. had everything a family could need to have a great vacation. It was perfect inside and out. We were close enough to all the attractions to get to enjoy them but far enough away to enjoy piece and quiet and the scenery.
Brandi H. May 10, 2018
Very nice chalet with an amazing view. Very clean and equipped with everything you would need.
Anna M. August 6, 2016
It was a beautiful cozy cabin. We loved it.
Angela H. April 4, 2017
We have stayed in many cabins up there. A few that are no longer available. This one wasnt the million dollar view but made up for allot in what we were missing in other cabins. We had a decent amount of privacy. The features in this cabin we4e great. Working and newer appliances including washer and dryer. The beds were a big enjoyment. King size mattressss and comfortable. Gas fireplace was great. On top of all that. They even left some dvds and games to be enjoyed. Over all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

My husband and I have been to Gatlinburg many times and we always stay in a chalet. This was our first time to stay in Bare Necessities. It is obvious this home is loved by the owners. It is beautifully decorated, and every comfort is made available. While the view is not the best, the privacy more than makes up for this. This house is on stable ground, and it is very private. Walking outside in your PJs is not a worry at all!!! (That is impossible in most chalets.). The hot tub is covered and private, which allows for plenty of soaking. The upstairs bath is plenty large enough for two!!
We hope to stay in Bare Necessities again!
Amber M. December 4, 2016
Cabin was great! This is the second time my husband and I have visited this property! Enjoyed the updated front deck! We have rented other properties from Chalet Village and this is our absolute favorite!!
Glen H. May 20, 2017
Everything was great except electricity turned off in middle of the night. When turned back on the alarm went off. Happen during the day too but that was not a problem
David H. July 10, 2017
Perfect for two couples. Great view and comfortable accommodations.
Anonymous May 16, 2017
I booked the cabin for Mother's Day for a get away for my mom, she stated that all she wanted to do was rest, she was able to get plenty. I loved how quite and peaceful it was. Everything was beautiful. We were able to cook meals considering that they cabin came with everything we needed, we just had bring groceries. I'll be booking another cabin soon for my boyfriend and I.

This is a great home to experience the beauty of the Smokies. The property is well maintained, clean and comfortable. The owner's make you feel very welcome with unexpected conveniences. I have been booking with Chalet Village for many years and have always had great service. Many of the houses I have stayed in were lost in the fire. I was so happy to find this perfect home survived.
Mark C. November 9, 2017
This chalet was immaculately kept, well furnished and stocked with all the comforts of home. While there are other chalets near-by, this chalet feels tucked away in the woods with all the privacy you could wish for. Our first evening at the chalet a mother bear and two cubs climbed up the hill and onto the porch but quickly left when they realized there was no food for them. We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves anymore and this chalet helped make our time in Tenn. the perfect stay.
Michael C. May 9, 2017
PLUSES- This was like our home away from home. It was so cozy. It was nice relaxing in the hot tub. Great view of the mountains.

NEGATIVE- The hut tub kept shutting down and you would have to wait about 20 minutes before you could restart it. The wifi and cable didn't work. (Could have been from the wind damage from the day before we arrived). The hot tub was a little scary after dark/

Overall we enjoyed our stay in this chalet.
Leah P. July 30, 2017
Visit the Smokies at least once a year. Love it there. This was a very nice chalet. It was just sad to see all the loss. I know there will be a lot of rebuilding and get better with time. It was a little scarier driving with it so open, with all the houses missing that normally blocked the view. The chalet was very clean and I was amazed it wasn't damaged. I would definitely stay again!

It was wonderful!
Anonymous September 26, 2017
Only small problem was the 1st floor bed. Had to go upstairs for the following nights. Would have been a problem if we were sharing with another couple.
Roger U. May 29, 2018
This was home away from home. The homey feel of the house very clean great view. Everything we needed was there I would recommend anyone to stay with chalet village properties very nice people. Thanks
Anthony S. November 27, 2017
Our property was excellent, is was just a shame seeing all the fire damage driving up to it. Hopefully this area will get rebuilt over the next several years.
James B. March 14, 2018
Comfortable, all appliances worked well. Interesting drive. Pretty views. Would stay again. Place could use a fresh coat of paint. It’s clean just needs painted. Beds are supper comfortable. We would love to stay again!

Easy check-in...very clean and well maintained...up to date accommodations...tasteful decor...great views...loved the hot tub and outdoor areas...secluded allowed for cooking meals...overall it was just great...even saw 4 bears on 2 different occasions!
Anonymous July 4, 2014
We enjoyed our mountain stay in comfort. The house was clean and was beyond our expectations. Plenty of towels, tv's (complete with a selection of movies and video games) and space. The hot tub was clean and in working order. The beds were comfortable. All appliances were newer and in working order. The jacuzzi was the only thing we had trouble with (it would not stay plugged).

There was plenty to do nearby but if you felt like staying in the local market would deliver pizza, sandwiches or the ingredients for s'mores (as well as anything they carried there, excluding alcohol).

Will definitely come back!

awesome amazing absolutely beautiful

We stayed at the Bare Nessestity cabin over a 4 day weekend. The cabin was very clean and nicely decorated. It was just the two of us but plenty of room for two couples with two master bed rooms. There was a large hot tub and and inside whirlpool tub. Nice view from the patio and hot tub.
Terri D. May 2, 2014
We had a great time staying in Bare Necessities. The Chalet was clean and the beds comfortable. The views wonderful. Loved sitting in the very private hot tub after a day of hiking and taking in the scenery. The stone patio was a bonus. Another great place to hang out and relax. We saw a bear on the road one day on our way out to hike. Overall a very nice stay. Wish we were still there.
Robert H. June 2, 2014
It was just what I was looking for in a couple's getaway. We had a great time cooking out and then sitting in the hot tub in the evening.
Mimi K. December 29, 2014
Our stay at this location enhanced our Christmas vacation experience in Gatlinburg. The chalet was very clean, well organized, and the views were awesome. I would definitely recommend this rental to others; my family and I cannot wait to stay here again!
Lisa L. January 5, 2015
We were two couples looking for a quick mountain vacation over new years and found it here. The house had great views, the hot tub was nice after hiking and we loved the location. Our only small issue was the living space was a little small for four people.
Mary R. April 17, 2014
Very quiet and the view was amazing.
Laura D. April 1, 2015
My 3 friends and I decided to take a weekend trip to Gatlinburg for my birthday. This chalet exceeded my expectations. We were incredibly happy with our stay. The staff at chalet village was great. I called stating I would be late and the info was left for us. We wanted to be secluded with a view and we got just that'. Only negative the sheets were dirty in one bedroom. We would all definitely come back to 932 Bare necessities! Thank you!
Erica S. May 22, 2015
We came to the cabin with another couple and loved every minute of it! The view was beautiful from both the porch and hot tub. It was very clean, beds comfy, and super fun! We even saw two bears; one even visited us at the hot tub! It unfortunately rained off and on for most of the trip, so we didn't get to use the outdoor space a lot.

I do wish that for two couples, the living space was larger. But as one couple, it's ample room. We also got lost multiple times getting to the property and the roads are tough to navigate.

Other than that, it was a great stay and we will surely be back!
Charles S. July 8, 2015
We stayed here with my brother and sister-in-law and it was perfect for 2 couples with a nice big master on the second floor and another bedroom with its own bath downstairs. Having the washer/dryer was great although I didn't use it. The living room is sufficient for 4 as is the kitchen table. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and pots & pans. We did cook breakfast. I loved how many bath towels were given and the fact they left towels on a table for use with the hot tub. The hot tub is really nice and it's great to be under cover but still have a mountainous view. My husband sat out there every morning drinking his coffee. The front porch has a table and 4 chairs too. The check in/out with Chalet Village was smooth. This property has a steep drive as do many mountainous properties. It is fairly close to downtown G'burg but it's definitely a drive not a walk. We did notice a trolley or bus system nearby where you can park and ride but I didn't use it nor do I know anything about it. If I ever wished to return I would consider staying here again.
Eva F. March 31, 2015
Our stay was perfect! From the moment of arrival, we could not have asked for a better stay..I have never rented a cabin before, and I will never use a hotel again when we do come to Gatlinburg! In fact, if THIS cabin is available, I will be requesting it from now on! I loved the location, the view and everything about it. It was as cozy, if not cozier than our own home...very homey! Even my kids loved the stay. They did not even want to venture out to the town! Thank you for a lovely stay!
Scott P. March 28, 2015
Our family had a terrific time at our stay at Bare Necessities, cabin listing # 932. Home wax well furnished and tastefully decorated with no neighbors overlooking the cabin.
We especially enjoyed the covered hot tub porch area and the view of Hatlinburg in the distance as we soaked in the tub.
Very clean, with comfy beds and a handy gas fireplace.
A great place to vacation in Gatlinburg!!
Norina M. October 26, 2015
No surprises with this chalet! Exactly as described!
Tracey G. May 20, 2015
The hot tub area is great. We loved the added porch for grilling. The house does need some exterior and interior painting done. The bathrooms appear to have been recently updated. We will definitely stay at this home again.
Jessica M. February 25, 2014
This chalet was so cute! Perfect size for two married couples (having the TWO king beds rocked)!

The driveway is steep, so make sure you have a 4-wheel drive car!

Will go back! Thank you Chalet Village!
Joe G. July 15, 2015
This place was perfect for the 3 of us. Plenty of room. Comfortable bedrooms. The Jacuzzi and charcoal grill were perfect for ending the evening after a long day of hiking. Location was nice for us also. Free laundry ain't bad either. The only problem we had was the bedroom light wasn't working but they fixed it immediately once we notified them of the issue so no problem there. Place was in great shape and very clean. We spent most of our time hiking in Cades Cove and a few other places and this place was perfect for resting our head at night.
Emily M. August 5, 2015
The home was exactly as presented online and the perfect place for our family of 3. Comfortable and homey. Our son enjoyed having the upstairs suite to himself. The view from the hot tub and patio was lovely...we could see the nightly Dollywood fireworks from the hot tub! Location was perfect as well. Easy check in and check out.
Anonymous December 16, 2015
Had a really great time, the cabin/ chalet was very clean and nicely decorated! We throughly enjoyed the jacuzzi and the beautiful scenery. Will definitely check this place out again for another stay!
