Think “chalet” and you’ll think of winter sports—skiing, tubing, snowboarding and more. These chalet rentals in Gatlinburg are close to the slopes, while still offering easy access to downtown entertainment.
1. Tree Tops
This spacious house soars into the trees surrounding it. The screened porch with plenty of seating lets you enjoy the view in all weathers. Play games on the arcade console, or gather everyone to eat at the extra-long kitchen bar. Use the modern, fully equipped kitchen to fix hot drinks and meals when you come home from playing hard at nearby Ober Gatlinburg, a ski area and amusement park.
Tucked into its hillside, this cabin’s unusual shape and unique furnishings make this a special retreat. Kids will love the log bunk beds, while the grown-ups sleep under the friendly watch of hand-carved bears on their headboard. The open floor plan, views from every window, and outdoor hot tub complete the relaxed atmosphere.
With two living rooms, four bedrooms, and four bathrooms, Altitude Adjustment is big—but it’s not just about space. Every room is freshly renovated, including the beautiful new kitchen. An eight-foot-wide window frames the mountain view. But even with all this sparkling space, you won’t sit indoors too long because this treasure is just five minutes from the entrance to Ober Gatlinburg and close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Bringing a group? This modern, streamlined rental sleeps 12. Spread out in the living and gaming rooms, huge wraparound deck, large kitchen, and dining area surrounded by windows. A separate, private hot tub pavilion provides even more space and a second deck. Soak away any aches you feel after your downhill adventures.
Chalets don’t get more ski-centric than this one: It nestles under the tramway that carries visitors from the valley to Ober Gatlinburg’s slopes. Watch the suspended gondolas glide up the mountainside as you sip coffee on your deck. The chalet is newly refurbished, from its bedrooms to its top-notch kitchen. An unusual bath and shower room with stone flooring and a stone-set tub brings mountain beauty indoors.
A rustic yet fresh interior sets this cabin apart. Rustic: The carved logs that make up the dining table, bunk beds, and master suite bed. Fresh: The upgraded appliances, cathedral ceiling, open floor plan, and charming bear-themed décor. Like the other chalet rentals here, Wandering Bear Cub is close to skiing, the national park, and Gatlinburg too.
