Description

** THIS CABIN OFFERS A 15% DISCOUNT TO MILITARY AND EMERGENCY SERVICES ACTIVE AND RETIRED. MUST ASK FOR DISCOUNT AT BOOKING AND SHOW PROOF OF SERVICE**

When you think about a mountain vacation, you probably think “Log Cabin”, tucked away in the beautiful forests of the Smoky Mountains. If so, you are thinking about Appalachian Dream Lodge!

Inside this Gatlinburg cabin, the exposed wood beams and tongue and groove walls convey a woodsy theme, while leather sofas and the large flat screen television gives today's traveler what they are looking for. Sit, relax, and enjoy cable TV through Spectrum with HBO movie channels. New ceiling mounted 46" Sony TV with stereo in the living room. The cabin also offers high-speed internet for gaming and multiple users, as well as a wood burning fireplace you can curl up in front of after a cold day on the slopes. The kitchen is fully-equipped with everything you need to cook and serve you own meals, just bring the food. For you coffee lovers, there is both a Keurig and drip coffee maker, bring your own filters/pods and coffee.

On the main floor, there is a handmade wooden dry bar tucked near the stairs which provides a nice spot to enjoy drinks with friends and family, watch your favorite shows or game on the large flat screen or enjoy a game of darts. Also on this main level, you will find a private Queen size bedroom with a full bathroom that can be accessed from the bedroom as well as the hallway. Across the hall from the bedroom is an additional private room with a 'twin over full' bunk bed set for extra sleeping and a foosball table for fun!

Upstairs you will find two additional bedrooms, one with a King bed and one with a Queen bed. These two bedrooms share a large bathroom with a shower.

During the day, you can sit outside on the covered porch and watch the comings and goings on the road below, and just enjoy the sounds of nature around you. Occasionally, you might catch the family of bears which frequents the area (Always Lock Your Car Doors). The 4 person hot tub is located on a private covered porch (just off the living room) so it can be enjoyed in all weather situations.

This cabin sits just off Ski Mountain Road at an elevation of 2,432 ft and is a short drive to the national park. If you are into winter sports, snow skiing or snowboarding, this cabin is just a few minutes from the Ober Gatlinburg ski resort, as well as downtown Gatlinburg. Another amenity this cabin offers is access to Chalet Village Owners Club. There you can enjoy a large swimming pool, kids pool, tennis courts. and small gym during the summer months. Though the clubhouse is located on the hill just behind the cabin, we recommend driving around to gain access as the climb up to the clubhouse would be quite a climb.

This cabin was perfect for a family w/2 adult children. Just enough space for all 5 of us to have our own space, yet cozy enough for family activities. We saw a black bear walking in the front yard, and another one up the street. There were chipmunks all over the place running around playing. We Will be staying w/this group/cabin in the future.

The cabin was great. It was the perfect size for our family. The only issues we really had was that the dryer would not heat up. There was no batteries in the dart board but that wasnt a huge deal. And I personally think they need a new hot tub. But other then that the cabin was great and we had a wonderful time.
Thanks for the review and the suggestions. We checked the dryer and it was having a problem heating up, so we have called appliance repair. We appreciate you bringing issues to our attention as we are probably unaware and and want your stay to be perfect. We hope you can get away again soon.

My friends and I had an awesome stay at this cabin. It is very up to date while maintaining its rustic “cabin in the woods” feel. The property is far enough away from others that you feel secluded. Beds and furniture is all nice.
Justus, thanks for writing a review and we are glad to hear you enjoyed the cabin and your time in the Smokies. The owner is always adding and updating the cabin, so keep it in mind the next time you come to the Smokies.

The cabin looks to be in the middle of reno but i think when it's done it'll be great. The location is not bad. You don't have steep hills to get to it;however, the view leaves something to be desired. The property manager was great. The lock on our door went out and they came out in the middle of the night to give us a key and they came to fix it the next day.
Thanks for the review and we are happy to provide excellent customer service for any issues that arise during your stay. The view is described as "wooded" on the website, so we regret if you thought the view would be otherwise. The location is great for easy access to the ski lodge, downtown, the national park entrance and it's on a bear trail! The owner has been making improvements to the interior of the cabin and has more planned for 2021. We hope you see you in the mountains again soon.

This was a much needed family getaway with our grow children, spouses and grandchild. This was also the first visit to the GSMNP for the kids. This was our, my husband and I, 5th time visiting the Smokey’s and wanted to share our mountain experience with the kids. The Mountain Laurel Chalets staff made our stay very enjoyable and they were very, very helpful especially during these uncertain times. Check in was easy and the staff had everything ready at their offices. Check out was just as easy. We will definitely use Mountain Laurel Chalets in the future. *the reason I put a 3 star for the property condition is because there was mouse droppings in the kitchen cupboards and drawers and we had to wash the kitchen utensils, pot and pans before we could use them. I know this property is in the mountains and surrounded by trees and critters can not be helped to get in, but it really needs to be addressed. The second reason for 3 stars is because the refrigerator was unbalanced and this caused water to collect under the vegetable pull out bins. So, every time we pulled out the bin to get vegetables out water would spill out. We had to put a towel under the refrigerator to soak up the water. The third reason for 3 stars is the dart board doesn’t work. And the fourth reason is the hot tub jets need to be fixed because the jets do not put out much power. The fifth reason for 3 stars is because the downstairs bathroom door jams need to be fixed because the bathroom door leading into the bedroom wouldn’t close at all. <br/>The mattresses on the bunk bed, top and bottom, were lumpy which made for a very uncomfortable & unrestful nights sleep.<br/>Very thankful there was a washer and dryer and WIFI.<br/>
Welcome back to the mountains and we hope your family enjoyed their week surrounded by nature's beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains. We appreciate the kind words you shared about our staff and how we are managing our rentals during these uncertain days of Covid. We regret that you had maintenance issues during your visit and wanted you to know that we are taking the necessary steps to address each item. We hope to see you in the mountains again soon.

Our family really enjoyed staying at this beautifully decorated cabin. There were several different options for sleeping including a set of bunkbeds. We saw bears in the area almost daily. There was a porch with a hot tub which was enjoyed by all.
Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Appalachian Dream Lodge. The bears almost certainly have a trail from the top of the mountain down to the valley, right through your yard. Just remember to lock your car doors! We are glad you hear you were able to enjoy the outdoor area and hope you can come back to see us again soon.

My husband and I had a wonderful week in the mountains. We arrived a day after my birthday. This is the second time we chose Appalachian Dream Lodge for our vacation. We love the location because we get to see so many bears. This time did not disappoint us, we saw more bears than we have ever seen. I trust Mountain Laurel Chalets to have the cleanest and nicest cabins you could ever want and have stayed with them for over 20 years exclusively. I would recommend any cabin they are renting, each one we have stayed in was spotless.
Thanks for the review and we are glad your family and the bears had a good birthday celebration at Appalachian Dream Lodge. The bears are really active this year for some reason that we can't figure out. We really appreciate the kinds words and our continued partronage. See you again soon!

Thanks for your comments. We regret that the accidental damage insurance was not explained in detail on the VRBO site, but you also had the choice of a $300 damage hold on your credit card which was offered to you when the office called to confirm your choice. In that situation, you would have not had any additional charges. Thank you for staying with us.

Everything was overall pleasant. The pictures do not do this place justice. So beautiful! A little dirty on the inside but other than that. Wonderful.
Thank you for your comments. We try very hard to accurately represent what you will actually see when you rent a chalet with us. Appalachian Dream Lodge is a beautiful log cabin and it's hard to capture it's charm in pictures. Our housekeepers also try very hard to maintain the properties in peak condition and we are sorry if you encountered anything less than perfect. We hope that you will give us another try.

My husband and I took our 2 sons, ages 21 and 18, up with some of their friends for a couple days so they could ski, we could enjoy the alone time in the cabin, and take a stroll or two through Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Just our luck, it rained our entire time we were there so the boys didn’t get to go skiing, but that didn’t damper any of our time. We all enjoyed the covered porch, the kids LOVED the hot tub area (that’s a great little private area, yet still has some views), we enjoyed the dry bar after our trip to The Island for some wine and shine &#xD83D;&#xDE09;, but most of all, we enjoyed the cleanliness, quietness, and amazing comfort of the house. We can’t wait to visit Appalachian Dream again soon!
Thank you for your comments and we are happy you enjoyed the cabin, despite the rain. Next time, let's hope for clear skies and sunshine!

The home was large and spacious for the 7 adults and 1 child that stayed for about a week. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and being entertained by the mama bears and babies (1 mama and 2 little ones, another mama with 3, and a third mama with 4 babies!) <br/><br/>The house was in need of some updates. The steps into the house are a little awkward—especially the very bottom step. This could be an issue for elderly or people with hip or back problems. <br/><br/>Most items worked, but the knob on the washing machine was nearly impossible to turn to the proper setting (and the knob is no longer marked since it has apparently been scratched and warped through the many years). The light in the bathroom shower sometimes turned on and sometimes didn’t. People staying, may want to bring a shower/tub mat to keep from slipping in the downstairs tub (it gets quite slick when there is any soap or shampoo on it’s surface). The lock on the bathroom door from the downstairs bedroom didn’t really lock. <br/><br/>While overall the house was useable and comfortable, it just seemed to be getting rather outdated and in need of some freshness such as new mattresses, new bedding, appliances, attention to locks, plumbing (under kitchen sink), loose deck boards, tightening screws on handles, repairing the laundry room door (keep it on track), etc.<br/><br/>The amenities such as the hot tub and pool access were nice for our family. Also the location was great. Far enough to enjoy some quiet, yet close enough to Gatlinburg so that a quick drive would get us downtown.<br/><br/>I would only recommend this property to relatives or a friend with the knowledge that the place needs some attention.
Thank you for your comments and we are happy your family enjoyed their time in the mountains. We will address the maintenance issues you mentioned and appreciate you bringing those to our attention. We look forward to your return visit.

The home is in a great location. Ample room for family or friends with four bedrooms. Hot tub was nice. Appliances work fairly well. Beds are comfortable and master bedroom is huge. There is parking for three cars easy, four is doable. Our only complaint is that HBO was advertised but not available. We were planning on watching an HBO end of Series show the last night of our vacation. Other than that we had a fantastic time and even saw a bear on the property.
Thanks for the comments and you are absolutely correct - the owner switched cable providers and now offers free Showtime instead of HBO. The website has been updated and I hope you've seen the last GOT (although I was thoroughly disappointed at how it ended, but that's just me).
The bears are EVERYWHERE this have had a bumper crop of bear cubs and there is a momma with four cubs who is often seen roaming around in that area.

The only complaint that I have is that there was a very limited supply of trash bags and dish-washing detergent. This would not have been a big deal if the office was not 10-15 minutes away. I don't understand why this was a problem, but I guess that most people don't stay for a week or always eat out while visiting.
Thanks for the comments and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We do supply a couple of kitchen trash bags and a container of dish detergent for the dishwasher and also liquid for the sink. This is listed on your confirmation along with the statement "additional is available at the office". These things are there as a convenience to you and we are happy to resupply as needed.

I always enjoy staying in Gatlinburg T.N. and staying with Mountain Laurel Chalets is just the cherry on top. This cabin was a place that made me feel like we were away from all the crazy things in life and it made us feel like it was just us and that is always a great feeling because life gets crazy and when we were here we just wanted to be a family and focus on what really matters in life, each other and our loved ones. We will always stay with mountain laurel and we will stay here in this cute home again. If we had the means to stay more then we would, but this is a place that you should stay because you have to stay here to understand. Words can not explain what this place has to offer!
Thank you so much for your heart warming review of our chalet. We hope all our guests have the same experience and can't wait to see you again!!

Checking in was easy and convenient. The cabin was perfect and conveniently located close to Gatlinburg. We would stay there again in anytime.<br/><br/>
Thanks for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon.

We all really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. We loved seeing the Bear in the driveway right after we arrived. Cabin was beautiful and gave off the comfortable feel we were looking for. Our only concern was the rugs. We all tripped over them a dozen times. The one by the bar is turned up on the edges and just for future clients those probably need to be fixed. Staff was very nice and helpful. Thanks so much and we would recommend this canine to anyone.
We are glad you enjoyed the cabin and appreciate your suggestion about the rugs. The owner has installed rug grippers so there are no longer any turned up edges. Thanks again and we look forward to your next visit to the Smokies.

We love the Smokies and Gatlinburg. We have spent many of our vacations in the Smokies and have tried other rental companies but always come back to Mountain Laurel because they treat us like family and they always help with any problems. If you are planning a trip to the Smokies, you should stay in a Mountain Laurel chalet!
Thank you for much for writing the review and the kind words about our staff. You ARE our family and we are always happy to welcome you back!

It was a great experience, from the staff at Mountain Laurel to the beauty of the cabin. The visit from 2 different set of bear family was one of the highlights of the trip.
Thank you for the review. It is always fun to see the bears and Appalachian Dream Lodge gets it share of bear traffic. Always remember to lock your car door, as they can get it.
