Description

FREE FUN INCLUDED EVERY DAY! We have hand picked a variety of offers from top attractions and given you one of each, for free, for every day of your stay. Attractions include Dollywood, Anakeesta, Soaky Mountain Water Park, Wonderworks, and many more! You can use all or none of these freebies each day; it’s completely up to you.

Just one mile to downtown Gatlinburg with easy access to the National Park, this quaint cottage will meet your every need and offer a pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of life. With an occasional view of the tram making its trip up to Ober Gatlinburg, you will undoubtedly enjoy nature firsthand in the property’s lush yard. Perhaps you might even spot a visiting bear or two! Huge bay windows allow you to enjoy your private natural surroundings from inside the home as well.

This two bedroom/two bathroom home with flat screen TVs and beautiful decor will satisfy the most discriminating traveler. Original wood floors and wood tongue and groove walls bring nature in close. Feeling competitive? Enjoy the pool table! Longing for R&R? Enjoy reading in the sun room, a picnic in your very own backyard, and a soak in the hot tub.

It has easy access to the Gatlinburg bypass which will get you to Pigeon Forge and Dollywood, but it still allows you a pleasant retreat from the busy traffic that attractions tend to draw.

Unable to come as we’d planned this spring, but seeing the awesome renovations makes me excited to get through the viral outbreak and back to normal life...first stop, MLC for an awesome vacation!! Love love love the new kitchen with all the windows and beautiful counters!!!!

Wow, we stayed at Dogwood a few years ago and thought it couldn't get any better - then it did! Can't wait to return to this cabin now that the kitchen has been opened up. The hot tub is in a more secluded area than it looks in photos, so there is plenty of privacy. For folks who don't like to go way up high on the mountain, this is the perfect solution. It's high enough to get the mountain feel, but not so high that it's a steep and difficult climb. One of the nicest cabins for the price I've seen anywhere.

Had another great experience with Mountain Laurel Chalets and Dogwood Cottage. Always a quiet rental with convenience to national park. As typical for us, we had a bear appear on property while staying. We will be back again.

Our original cabin rental had to be shutdown for a maintenance issue. Management gladly moved us to another rental that would accommodate us for the weekend. This is one that we probably would had never chosen (only because it looks more like a house) but we was very happy with this rental. The inside has been updated, very clean, comfortable bed, nice and private. Can even wave at the Tram going by (from the fire pit). We will definitely stay here again. Location is not very far up the mountain, BUT the driveway is in a bad curve. I would recommend a cover over the hot tub, and some rugs at the doorways. Its rained while we was here, had nothing to wipe off our feet. Had a VERY relaxing weekend! Until next time...

Manager's Response

Denise, we do apologize that your original cabin was not able to work out for you all, but it is great to hear that you were able to enjoy your new cabin nonetheless. We always want to take care of our guests at Mountain Laurel, and give them the most relaxing mountain vacation possible. It is fantastic to hear that you all will be with us again! We absolutely love having our guests back with us, and we looking forward to seeing you soon!

We love this chalet! We have stayed in this chalet several times before..
Everything was clean and in order...The only thing we were disappointed with was the living room couch...It smell like oily man’s hair... It needs shampoo or replace with a couch that can be wiped off... Other then that we really like the location and the one level...I love the kitchen and dining room!
Overall we love it!

Manager's Response

We are so glad that you love this chalet and keep coming back! It is a beautiful place with many amenities that allow families to enjoy quality time together, and the one level is perfect for those who stairs might be challenging. This chalet offers beautiful views that can be enjoyed inside or outside because of the large windows. It is our pleasure to serve customers like you, and we hope you come back for years to come!

The fire pit was nice. Unfortunately, the hot tub lights and half the jets did not work. The cottage was nice and quiet. The mountain views were as not as good as some of the other units, but the drive to Gatlinburg was quick and easy.

We had a surprise visit from a young bear who apparently wanted a piece of the hot tub cover. And it snowed 6” which gave us the opportunity to take a snow hike which was an amazing experience. Overall, the cabin was lovely. My only issue was with the closet for our hanging clothes. There is only one and it is in the bedroom that doesn’t have the en suite bathroom. Kind of odd. However, the beds were very comfy and the kitchen was well stocked with all of the basics. The driveway is kind of hidden around the curve of the road so be prepared to keep a watch so you don’t miss it. It’s less than a mile from the entrance of the park which we loved. I would absolutely stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay at Dogwood Cottage but felt a mountain cabin in the fall should have quilts for the beds and maybe a throw for the couch. My friend had to sleep with towels on top of the thin blankets provided for each bed. Extra blankets and pillows should not be something we should need to request. I know the weekly cleaner doesn’t have time to wash all the windows, but the bedrooms and bathroom windows were gross and obviously hadn’t been clean in sometime. The main living areas, dining, living room and game room windows were sparking clean. Also, the air intake vent needs some attention as there were cobwebs and a half inch of dust on the intake vent and the filter looked pretty dirty too. A couple of the output vents had black soot all around them, on the ceiling. I understand having a fireplace increase these issue but it should be addressed on a regular basis. I do have pictures if you’d like to see them. These issue wouldn’t keep me from staying a Dogwood Cottage again but I would expect the issues to be resolved. Thanks, Joyceann Homberg

Manager's Response

Thank you for your feedback Joyceann. We are happy to provide extra blankets and our office is less than a mile from Dogwood Cottage. We have informed all guests that due to covid-19 cleaning standards we only provide linens and one blanket on each bed in the house that is laundered between every booking. We are happy to add some washable blankets per your request. We will also address the spot cleaning items you recommended. Thanks for pointing those out.

Wonderful as always! Enjoyed the bears and bobcat strolling past our chalet!
Enjoyed the shopping and eating out at Gatlinburg restaurants! I know that the restaurants and others are short staff, but all employees were very gracious!
We will return in November, God Willing, but we are going to be with another group so we will be staying in PF instead, disappointingly for us! Hopefully next year we will see the staff at Mountain Laurel again! We love the Dogwood Cottage if it goes up for sale let us know!!:)

The cabin was quaint, updated and quiet. Totally enjoyed our experience there other than the exiting of the drive. Needs to have TWO pot lid mirrors facing each way to avoid any incidents with drivers going up and down the hill to Ober.

The cabin was perfect for the three of us. It was very clean and well-maintained. The description matched the website exactly (which is always a good thing!). The welcome box was a nice touch. There were plenty of towels, soap, toilet paper, etc. for our stay. We loved that it was about 20 minutes away from the congestion of the restaurants and activities, but still in the quiet of the woods, right next to the park. A BIG black bear came twice, once right outside the kitchen window! You don't get to see that often! We drove the Roaring Forks Motor Trail (which is very close), and stopped to do to two hikes off of that. After both our long hikes, the hot tub felt great! We also zip-lined (so much fun!), visited downtown Gatlinburg (the Sky-Lift and Sky Bridge are a must do!), and toured caverns. We ate at several restaurants, The Local Goat and Old Mill Restaurant were our favorites.

Manager's Response

Thank you for the review. We always want to advertise our chalets exactly as they are so that our guests will not be getting and surprises when they get here, it is a part of our core value of being good stewards. It sounds like you all got to enjoy everything that Dogwood Cottage and Gatlinburg has to offer, which is so exciting, and we would absolutely love to have you on your next visit to the smokies!

We enjoyed our stay just fine it was nice for privacy having a place of your own instead of a hotel but I've had better accommodations at other rentals.
Pros:
It was quiet and a nice kitchen with the utensils, plates, and cookware you would need.
Seating was nice for 4 people.
It had a dishwasher which is a plus.
It was located in proximity to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge which was one of the reasons I selected this place.
Having 3 pool options was nice.
Cons:
Housekeeping left 4 dirty towels from the previous renters. (Makes me wonder how thorough cleaning was).
We found the following bugs the entire week inside the cabin. Cockroaches, centipedes, millipedes (a ton non-stop), ticks, and spiders. I understand this is in the woods but it was excessive. You can't walk on the floors in bare feet without stepping on a bug. (creepy). Constantly needing to sweep to keep the floors clean.
The plumbing was not great and everything from the sinks to toilets felt loose or poorly put together it had the appearance of poor self workmanship.
The Jacuzzi had no outside lights or lights inside the Jacuzzi not a great option considering the bears are everywhere around the cabins.
Only the newer shower was usable be aware of how slippery it is seems like a potential falling hazard.
The sheets were a bit stained although it was clean I checked as it concerned me a bit.
They only provide (1) roll of toilet paper per bathroom (be aware you have to bring or buy when you run out).
The driveway mirror was not helpful at all when trying to pull left or right onto traffic it was a constant concern.
Overall the experience was not bad it wasn't worth the cost when I've stayed at much nicer cabins with better amenities.

It was pretty crowded overall in both locations we found that Tuchaleechee was a much quiter and nicer area if you are considering a stay and don't mind a 45 min drive away from the chaos. That

Manager's Response

Thank you for your very detailed review and we are sorry you had these issues. Our office is located less than a mile from Dogwood Cottage and we would have loved an opportunity to address your concerns. We do have monthly pest control service in every one of our chalets and we would have happily called the exterminator back for additional treament, as that is sometimes needed in the woods. We do provide two full rolls of toliet paper in each bathroom and if you need extra, our office is open to request more, as well as exchange towels. The street mirror is provided to allow you to see on-coming traffic since this home is on a curve which is common in the mountains. Overall, we are sad you had such a negative experience. We want our guests to know we are a phone call away in the event you have a concern and we do our best to address these concerns while the guest is in the property. We do hope to see you again.

Very relaxing. Our first venture out to hike the beautiful mountains again since getting the vaccination. Everything was clean and this cabin is just the right size for the two of us. Great place to be visited by bears, if that's what you're looking for - 3 different bears in five days. This cabin seems to be situated on the bear "turnpike" as evidenced by the paths leading out of the woods on the hillside above the cabin. Also, the chipmunks provided entertainment every day. This cabin was nicely renovated last year and they did a great job. Only thing needed is to upgrade the living room sofa and chairs, they've seen better days.

Love the keyless entry checkin/checkout that's been added.

Manager's Response

Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your spring break in Dogwood Cottage. It certainly appears to be on a bear trail, so make sure to lock your car doors at all times. We are still renovating the cabin and have plans this summer to redo the hall bathroom. Check back later this summer for new pictures. We look forward to see you again soon.

Dogwood Cottage is the perfect chalet, especially for the elderly. There are no stairs at all! Everything was in working order with the exception of the outdoor light by the hot tub. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and most items appeared to be relatively new. We loved all the windows which gave us a great view of the surrounding woods and a partial mountain view, too! There are two king size beds in the chalet. The one we slept in was so comfortable! We both slept great every night! The driveway is somewhat steep
but not at all difficult to access. The mirror across from the driveway works great to see traffic coming up the hill. This chalet appeared to be very neat and clean with the exception of the wood floors. I don’t know if they were mopped prior to our arrival but they were very dirty. We noticed right away that our socks were filthy after just a few minutes of walking around the kitchen and dining area. I’m not sure what the cleaning crew uses to mop the floors but whatever they’re using it’s not doing a good job at all. Other than that, we loved Dogwood Cottage and we absolutely love renting from Mountain Laurel Chalets. This was about the 12th time we’ve stayed in one of their rentals and have always been very pleased with them. We’ll be back again for sure!

Manager's Response

Diane, thanks for the review and we are happy to have you back with us. Dogwood Cottage was renovated last year and our guests are loving the open kitchen and wood floors throughout. We regret the floors were not properly cleaned and will bring it to the attention of the housekeeping crew that services that property. Please let us know if you have any issues with housekeeping or maintenance and allow us the opportunity to correct the problem. We want to provide the excellent service you are accustomed to and have staff on hand during office hours to accomplish that. We look forward to visit number 13!

This place is very cute, open layout with basic coffee maker, toaster, cups, mugs and silverware. Pros: it was about 5 minutes from Gatlinburg and Ober Gatlinburg Ski Slopes. They made our stay personal by leaving a cute little box with some treats in it. We loved the view. Most of the house has been updated and kept up. Over all, I loved it. Cons: Only one of the showers really works (the modern one). Both showers gather water, as if they are stopped up. But the shower head in the hall bathroom didn’t give water evenly at all so we didn’t use. Since the other shower also collected water in the tub while showering, it was very slippery from where the water sat. One of the girls that cane slipped and fell. I almost did as well. Also, the Gatlinburg Tram rides pretty close to the house. If you’re looking for something super private, I wouldn’t recommend. It passes by every 20min full of people.

Manager's Response

Thanks for taking the time to write a review on Dogwood Cottage. The homeowner has made a lot of improvements in the past year and our guests are loving it! We appreciate you letting us know about the showers.

We enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider it in the future as it was convenient to both Ober Gatlinburg and the Gatlinburg city limits.

Manager's Response

Michael, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Dogwood Cottage. It is a very convenient location being 1/2 mile to downtown or 2 miles to Ober Gatlinburg. You can decide whether to drive downtown and ride the tram up (which goes directly over Dogwood Cottage) or take your car to the top and park in their large parking lot. The tram runs every 20 minutes, but sometimes it's nice to be able to just jump in the car and go. We look forward to seeing you again.

We absolutely loved this house! The setup was spacious and cozy. Everything on one level was fabulous! It had everything you would need to cook with. We were fortunate to get some snow during our stay. The large picture windows allowed us to watch the snow fall while enjoying the fireplace. I think buying a new sleeper sofa would be a great asset for this house. It would allow more room for kids. The driveway was tricky, but the mirror worked great! We cant wait to come back. We will definitely be renting Dogwood Cottage from here on out!

Manager's Response

Keisha, thanks for the review and we are glad you found the mirror! It does come in handy when pulling out of the driveway. Dogwood Cottage is a great place for kids with everything on one level. We have always determined occupancy based on the number of beds in the house and do not count sofa sleepers. They are notorious for breaking down, so we do not recommend them to our owners. Dogwood Cottage is also a great place to be in the snow because it is so close to downtown and Ski Mountain Road is one of the first to be plowed when it snows. We hope to see you again soon.

This was so close to Gatlinburg and perfect for exploring! There was more than enough room for the four of us that went. The only thing I would have liked to know is how steep the driveway is and where it is located. We missed it a couple of times when arriving! Just had to be careful of traffic when pulling out or in! This is a beautiful cottage. We had a black bear walk right in front of the dining room window. This place was clean and so woodsy! Would definitely stay here again.

Manager's Response

Enjoyed our stay. Cottage was in a great location. Close enough to town for convenience but far enough away for some peace and quiet. Enjoyed the hot tub/outdoor dining/firepit area. One thing the owners could do to make it better is to put up a hand towel and bath towel bar and toilet paper hanger in the newly remodeled bathroom. Was a little annoying not having anywhere to hang wet towels to dry. Other than that, no issues. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Thanks so much for the review. We will get some bathroom accessories ordered right away and we apologize for any inconvenience that may have caused you. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you in the mountains again soon.

We had a great time staying the Dogwood Cottage in Gatlinburg! The location was great and quiet and logistically worked out well. The other reviews weren’t kidding about the bears, multiple times a day we would have a bear visiting the cottage! My only complaint is that the back outside light by the hot tub did not work. We called to let the front desk know and we were told that unfortunately, that light “just doesn’t work.” This made enjoying the hot tub in the evening a little uncomfortable due to the dark. The light from inside helped but we would have felt better with the additional light outside. Other minor maintenance issues we noticed after checking in were taken care of immediately once we informed the front desk. Also, no towel or linen exchange right now due to Covid which is understandable but it would have been nice to have about 2-3 extra towels placed in the cottage since we were there for 5 days. We ended up just doing laundry which worked out fine.

Manager's Response

Danielle, thanks for the review and we are glad you had a great time. We apologize for the back yard light not working and are hoping to have it fixed soon. The bears are a fun surprise, but always remember to lock your car doors or it won't be quite as fun. We will all be glad when our operations can go back to "normal" and COVID is a memory. Until then, we appreciate your understanding and encourage you to stay safe and take care. We look forward to your next visit to the mountains.

Kathy, thanks for taking the time to write a review and we are glad to hear you had a great Anniversary trip.

House was fine for the two of us on a short birthday getaway trip. Needs window treatments on other half of house. Very clean & quiet...if you don’t mind the bears then this place is for you as it’s in a bear path and yes they come about 2x a day just walk right up around the back and side of house morning and night, this made for relaxing in hot tub hard at times, we were always waiting and watching out for one to come up. The outdoor grill needs replaced it was missing a bracket inside so the grate was wobbly for food. Overall a very nice place. Lots of upgrades to house, keep them up, thanks ��

Manager's Response

Thanks for the review and we hope you enjoyed your Birthday Celebration at Dogwood Cottage. The bears are always a thrill to see, but not while you are in the hot tub! Please make sure you keep the back door unlocked when soaking in the tub in case you need to make a quick getaway. Thanks for the comment on the charcoal grill. We will get a new one up there. We look forward to seeing you in the mountains again soon and Happy Birthday!

We have used Mountain Laurel Chalets for many years and have never had an unpleasant surprise. Dogwood Cottage was no exception. The cottage is very convenient to downtown Gatlinburg but seems very distant due to the wooded setting. We had a very serene stay with the exception of two bears that came to visit. The first night I was shocked when one of the bears came by to check out what was being grilled. The next morning my wife and I were having coffee outside and they came out of the mountains and surprised us. Someone may have fed them that stayed there before us. Not a good idea ! Overall we enjoyed our stay very much.

Manager's Response

Thanks for the review and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Dogwood Cottage. The cabin is most definitly on a "bear trail" and makes an appearance more often than we like. Most people know to not feed them, but the bears are experts at getting into trash containers. We spend a lot of time repairing or replacing trash bins destroyed by bears. We also warn all guests to Lock their Car Doors! We hope to see you in the mountains again soon.

They were full size not the small ones you usually encounter. The huge windows were amazing and really let you experience nature while inside. The bedrooms were huge and the bathrooms were very nice. I definitely would recommend this cabin and I would definitely return.

Very nice facility .... the average rating on location was only because of the driveway right into the curve ... scary , but realize it is just the way it is ... everything else was great !'

Loved the chalet . It has everything you need for a quiet pleasant stay . I liked mostly that it’s not real high up. It’s high enough to have a private get away yet close enough to the Main Street for quick grocery needs . What you will experience with this chalet is that the owners have huge picture windows in all main rooms which brings the outdoors inside . You feel like you are sitting in a garden surrounded by nature .

Nice place in a great location. You can be parked in Gatlinburg in 5mins or take the bypass and be in Pigeon Forge in about 15mins. Our main complaint is no blinds in the living room. At night you see the lights from every car on Ski Mt rd reflecting in windows, and in the morning the sun hits you in the face laying in bed. The only other thing is not having the basics in the kitchen such as coffee filters, salt and pepper shaker etc... I left filters so the next people don't have to buy 100 to make 3 pots.

Manager's Response

Thanks so much for your review. We will contact the owner with your suggestion of blinds in the living room. We do keep our kitchens fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans and utensils. Unfortunately we cannot supply all for the kitchen. Hope to see you again soon!

Dogwood Cottage was an amazing place to stay. Sure, it might have a few minor things that could be updated. But they're so minor that they're not worth mentioning, unless you're expecting a brand new home. The cottage is very comfortable, and has everything you would need. I love how there are two homes in the same location, but they're set up in such a way that you really don't even notice because it's very private. The pool table was a lot of fun, and the room it's in has plenty of room for shooting pool. Our 2 boys didn't want to sleep in the same bed together, so one slept on the couch, which was very comfortable. Washer, dryer, and kitchen were all very functional. Overall, we loved pretty much everything about the place.

I will say that the shower in the bathroom adjoining the bedroom is extremely small and tight. But it's usable, and better than waiting on everyone in the main bathroom. Be mindful, because it is on a bear path. We saw 3 bears walk right by our window throughout the week. Very cool.

Manager's Response

Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Dogwood Cottage. Seeing the bears can be exciting, but enjoy from a distance. Please give us a call when you plan to return to the Smokies.

We love staying in this little cottage, it is so close to downtown Gatlinburg and very homey. We like working with Mtn. Laurel, they're always very accomodating and friendly. This little gem just needs a little TLC. The lamps and light fixture in the master really need replacing/fixing and the water pressure in the master bathroom sink is very low. Landscaping could also use a little work. This cottage is very charming, although curtains/shades would be appreciated in the living room and dining room. It is a great place to stay....these changes would make it awesome!

The location of Dogwood Cottage is great. It is low on the mountain so it offers quick access to the National Park and Gatlinburg. It would be the perfect cabin if the kitchen was updated with new cabinets and appliances, The furniture needs to be replace with more comfortable seating. The wicker furniture needs all the fabrics pieces to be replaced as they have a strong moldy smell in them. The king bed is ok but could stand to be replaced. Both bathrooms were ok but nothing special.

Overall this cabin has great potential but the owners need to put money into it for a update and it will make it nice.

Initially, this chalet was not our first choice. We had reserved another chalet for our visit that had a Mountain View. Unfortunately three days before our visit we were notified that the chalet we reserved was not available, because it was undergoing renovations that could not be completed because a certain home supply company did not deliver the countertops on time and so the renovation was not done. Fortunately, there was one chalet left and this was it. We were saddened because the chalet has Forest view and not the Mountain View we really wanted. But now after being in the chalet, I would use this one again. First, it is very roomy and it is very clean. There is a hot tub and a pool table and a washer and dryer. There are these wonderful large windows in the living room and throughout the house that allows you to see all throughout the outside and it is a very relaxing and comforting view. There was also an iron and ironing board which came in handy because my daughter brought a nicely wrinkled shirt I had iron. The driveway is not that hard to navigate, the only problem is is one of those hidden driveways so you just have to be careful when you pull out onto the main road that you don't turn into traffic There is one of those reflecting mirrors on a stand in front of you so you can see the traffic coming and going in front of you and it's not a massively busy stretch of road, so you're OK. The best part, is that the day before we left, we got to see a bear outside of our window walking around the chalet. So I did get some photos from inside the safety of the home. This actually has become one of our favorite chalet's despite not having the Mountain View, and we would definitely stay here again. Of course, the people who work at Mount Laurel are always very, very nice. We will, of course, be back.

The cabin was perfect for our first time visiting the Great Smokies from NYC - 3 adults and 1 10-year old. Location was so convenient! Very close to National Park and downtown Gatlinburg. Cabin was very clean and much more spacious than expected. We had everything we needed to feel like home. Views were beautiful, the only comment would be having an option for blinds/curtains for the windows in the living space but that might just be our preference coming from the city and not used to having everything open. Also Mountain Laurel was great to deal with, quick response to any questions and no problems with late check-in and early check-out when the office was closed. Would definitely recommend!!

My girlfriend and I took our children and went to Gatlinburg for a week. We wanted a nice, clean home to stay in. We stumbled across this cozy little house in the mountains. This house was the clean we wanted, the staff at mount Laurel are extremely helpful and friendly. From the flat screens in nearly every room, to the hot tub we didn't use because it was too warm outside, to the black bears we got to witness on our own property, the pool table our children used all the time, yet managed to never pick up a stick, to the kitchen, all the dishes provided including things you'd rarely use but you never know...this place was fantastic, well priced for what it is, and we'll managed. I've already referred people, will continue to do so, and we will most definitely be booking again, maybe this one, maybe another, but I like mount Laurel chalets, and I personally know we'll be back again sometime.

The cottage nestled up on the mountainside less the a mile from the entrance to the great smoky mountains national park. The views from the windows were full of beautiful trees. The cottage was recently renovated and very comfy and inviting. The driveway is quite steep so be sure your vehicle is up to it. Wifi worked well once we replugged in the devices. Great get away. Perfect spot if you like to go straight into park to hike in the morning and avoid the crowd

We had a great time at our cabin. The place was much bigger than we thought it was going to be. The only draw back to staying here is the driveway. It is a real doozy. I would advise that bigger mirrors be installed to see if cars are coming in either direction.
Had an experience with a black bear. It tried to get in our car when we were leaving. We loved seeing wildlife right outside our door. It was great.

This cottage was the perfect escape for a few days. The staff was great from the beginning. They were so friendly and accommodating! The cottage itself is tucked away from the road on a hill, but still a short drive to the Gatlinburg city which was nice if you wanted privacy, but didn't want to drive a while to go to dinner. There's plenty of space to spread out in, and we really enjoyed the picturesque views from the large windows all throughout the cottage. The kitchen was fully stocked with every appliance and cookware you could need to make a good meal at the cottage without going to the city if you wanted to. Overall, one of the best stays I've had in Gatlinburg!

My 69 yr old parents and I(38) had a great Easter weekend in the chalet (Dogwood Cottage) and we hope to come back soon. We're coming back to Gatlinburg in July but will have to stay in a cheaper chalet. But I hope we can come back to Dogwood Cottage next year when we have the money. The chalet is much improved since we stayed in it when it was called Seven Pines. Very clean. Comfortable beds and furniture. WiFi was a BIG PLUS for me since I don't have it at home. I would only suggest that an ice maker be installed in the refrigerator and alarm clocks be put in the bedrooms. But those are so very little things compared to the great things we can say about the chalet.Great stay!

We've stayed in a few cabins in the Gatlinburg area and this has been the best by far. Location is great, nice big rooms, and a ton of natural light. TVs had net flix which was great after putting kids down to bed. Perfect cabin for family of four. Will definitely stay again.

In a nut shell, from booking to checking in and checking out, the experience exceeded our expectations. The cottage was conveniently located and the staff were friendly and helpful. Once we were settled in, we noted that the ceiling fan in one of the bedrooms didn't work. We stopped by the office on the way into town to let them know. When we got back to the house a little later that evening, the fan was working. The cottage was spacious for a 2 bedroom and was neat and comfortable. I would recommend it to friends and family and plan to book it again the next time we visit the area.

We love staying at Mtn Laurel Chalets. This is the 4th chalet we have rented and have never been disappointed. We loved the view of the Tram going over and it's in a very good location and just a short distance from downtown. The only negative thing is the beds are super hard. Maybe an upgrade on the mattresses and Dogwood Cottage would be 2 thumbs up. And as usual the staff is always very friendly and helpful.

Nice comfortable cottage. King sized bed was great. Hot tube very welcome after a long hike. Quiet. Large pillows on the couch were down and the feathers sometimes would poke out of the fabric and scratch you. Drove past the driveway the first time. Getting out of the driveway was a little worrisome because of the angle but got used to it. Great location to park entrance. Would rent again.

What a great getaway for our family! We treated our parents as a thank you for all of their help in our recent move & assistance with newborn. We made use of the sunroom for a "third bedroom," making it easily sleep the 7 of us. The king room was definitely large enough to accommodate our son's pack-n-play, and the bed's slept wonderfully! Outdoor table made it easy to have meals outdoors. With the fall like weather - it was perfect! Very close to downtown which made it easy to explore, yet get back quickly if needed. Highlight, though of course, was seeing 2 bears roaming the property!

Only negative we can bring up is the driveway. It's located in a big curve, and can seem daunting the first few times. Ski Mountain Rd is pretty busy, so you just have to be careful, use the safety mirror, and listen for cars.

We thoroughly enjoyed it stay, and hope to make this a recurring treat!

We have been to Gatlinburg many times - this was a very comfortable and relaxing cabin for a long weekend. When we first entered there was somewhat of a musty smell but between opening the windows and air fresheners this cleared up very quickly. There is a road not far outside the back door which is a main route up the mountain so there was a lot of traffic but it was not that distracting, but we live downtown in a major city.

Overall the cabin was very clean and we enjoyed our selves very much. It was very convenient to downtown Gatlinburg. The hot tub was hot and very clean and relaxing.

chose the cabin because we wanted to be close to ski mountain but not the challenge of driving up and down the mountain. You can sit in the living room and watch the tram to Ober Gatlinburg go by. The cabin is well appointed with good wifi, soft beds and is well cared for. The only downside is the entrance - some more time should be put into the width and angle of the driveway as its on a blind curve

We travel often, but have only stayed in a cabin one other time in SD. I've heard horror stores about cabin rentals, so I am always extra-cautious about booking them. As a result, although we were going to be in Gatlinburg for a week, I booked the cabin for two nights only...just in case. WRONG DECISION! The Dogwood Cottage was everything you could possibly want during a vacation - beauty & solitude all rolled into one. The cabin was decorated beautifully, the bed provided a full night's sleep (which is rare!) & my family & I enjoyed our time together there immensely. We were able to have breakfast outside one morning amongst the peaceful background of the trees & my son & his grandfather enjoyed playing pool together - one of those moments that melts your heart!

I can't say enough good things about the cabin, but must also mention the staff at Mountain Laurel Chalets. They could not have been more helpful answering my questions beforehand, helping me print Dollywood tickets, etc.

Nothing but a WONDERFUL experience from every angle - except for the fact that I only booked it for two nights. :(

Dogwood Cottage was lovely and sat at the perfect location for our purposes...just down the mountain to the National Park, close to town,close to convenience store and a restaurant. The house was prestinely kept with a mix of older fixtures and newer furniture. Beautifully decorated with space for game playing, reading, etc. We loved having morning coffee and cocktail hour on the back patio. Beautiful views from indoors as if we were sitting in a treehouse. Privately situated. We spent most of our time hiking in the National Park, but this house had access to pools, club houses and more.

Cottage was ok,but the heat pump ran all the time the thermostat for actual room temp never moved no matter how high we set the heat.Also the carpet where the wood floor meets in living room has the carpet tacking strips coming through carpet I walked barefoot over it once and got a bloody foot,over all it was ok,we stayed there mainly because it was pet friendly,not many of them to pick from.

Manager's Response

Thanks for your review. We have been experiencing bitter cold temperatures and electric heat pumps struggle in these conditions. Unfortunately, we had pipes freeze after you checked out and the chalet silver lining is that all the flooring except the ceramic tile in the kitchen will be replaced.

My girlfriend and I have taken a quick trip to Gatlinburg for the last two years. We managed to plan ahead this year and got this great cabin. We really enjoyed our stay, had a nice warm fire, played a lot of pool, and spent some time in the hot tub. The cabin is close to the strip, and it made everything really convenient. We had a blast and would recommend this cozy cabin to anyone interested.

Always wanted to visit gatlingburg for Christmas lights and parade. The house was just right for my husband, daughter, grandson and myself. We decided at the last minute to come a day early and Mountain Laurel made that possible. Place was clean and roomy and being only one floor safe for our toodler. Only thing that would have made it perfect was if the house had been decorated for the holiday. Will always use Mountain Laurel for our Gatlinburg stays.

My wife and I have stayed with Mountain Laurel Chalets in the past and have always had a great experience working with them. Now that we are able to bring our dogs with us, makes the stay that much more enjoyable. We just wish more of their properties allowed pets. Dogwood Cottage was very pleasant to stay in and is located not too far from downtown but still has a secluded feel.

Our cabin was clean for arrival and furniture was up scale. Kitchen was fully equipped and dinnerware was in excellent shape. One bathroom was very small and could have had a nice towel rack instead of two hooks. Needed a small stand to place your toiletrys on.Had to place on the floor. Short people in the hot tub was not possible. No seats to raise yourself above water level. Overall experience was good.

The place wasn't too bad but definitely at the lower end of mountain laurel wifi is a downer in this day and time and the big windows with no window coverings can be a little creepy.also a bit dangerous driveway set between two curves and impossible to turn right without going in the other lane a little.there is a mirror there but can see cars out of the corner of your eye before you see them in the mirror.other than that the place wasn't bad.i would only recommend the place if you get a great price on it.

Originally booked this property as a quiet getaway for my boyfriend's birthday. Had a small problem with the outlets in the kitchen for one day but it didn't hinder our overall enjoyment. The hot tub was great. We loved the cookware! The bed in one of the rooms could probably be replaced but if you like a firm mattress than you won't have any problems! It was close enough to town that if we needed anything we were okay but far enough away to enjoy the relaxation of the Smoky Mountains. The style of decor was country rustic but we found it charming. Plenty of space for a two bedroom! Loved the sunroom and pool room.

Great place to relax and enjoy our vacation!

This was our second stay with Mountain Laurel Chalets and our first at Dogwood Cottage. We had to check in late but the staff was very accommodating and made it so easy to pick up our keys. There had been an unusually heavy downpour the day before we checked in, so the carpet in the billiards room was pretty wet, but there were fans in place and the floor was mostly dry by the time we checked out. It probably would have been an issue if we had planned to play pool, but we didn't so it didn't really impact our stay, other than a little musty smell that we took care of with some candles. Not far from the office, so not really high up on the mountain as most, but we still had plenty of privacy and quiet. We truly enjoyed our stay and do plan to return for a longer stay in the future.

This cabin was great, it's up in the mountain, but not to far up, just the right amount. You only have one other cabin next to you, but you don't even notice them at all. When you walk in the cabin it smells good, and looks like a brand new cabin. It was so clean!! Every thing worked excellent. It was only a 5 minute drive to gatlinburg and pigeon forge, where everything was happening. I will most definitely be going back.
