Everything was great except the pool table was missing a pool ball(12).
Karen, thanks for the heads up and a problem that is easily solved. We keep extra pool balls at the office. If you ever need something replaced or have a maintenance concern, let the office know. We have maintenance staff to help you during normal business hours. We hope you will be able to come back soon.

Enjoyed the stay, location was in the mountains but very close to Gatlinburg and the bear visit in the mornings was quIte an experience! Will be back for another stay!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The bears are a fun surprise, but make sure to lock your car doors. We look forward to your next visit with us.

The cabin exceeded our expectations in every way. It isn't very far up the mountain and was easy to,find. The place is beautiful and has everything you need and more. The other couple with us were from,Los Angeles area and they really loved it. If you want a better view, you might want to rent a place further up the mountain, but we could still see the gondola as it passed by. The cabin icomfortable and very pretty. This will be our go to place when staying in the Smokies. It is very convenient to the national park and to Gatlinburg.

Awesome, as always!

Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your time at Early Dawn. Being about a mile from downtown, it is very easy to pop into the National Park or take a stroll through town. The hardest decision walking around downtown might be chosing from the 70+ restaurants in Gatlinburg! We hope to see you in the mountains again soon.

Excellent. Wasn't the location I was wanting but I booked late and took what I could get. Good location for Gatlinburg. The cabin was clean and much larger than I was expecting. Check in and checkout was easy. I would rent from Mountain Laurel Chalets again.
Thanks for the review. The view is best from the top deck of the mountains, but the middle and bottom decks also have views, but more of the surrounding trees. After the leaves fall, those two decks have a better opening to the mountains. We are glad you enjoyed the chalet otherwise and hope you can come back soon.

We had a excellent cabin. I woke up every morning to the sunrise just coming over the trees. I really enjoyed the screened in porch to the upstairs bedroom. MY husband and I would sit out there every night and listen to an owl. We saw a momma bear and her 2 cubs right in front of the cabin. That was amazing.<br/>The only thing I didn't care for was the fact you had to turn your towels in everyday at the office and get fresh ones. No big deal just a little inconvience. We will return. Love the mountains.
Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed the screened in deck off the upstairs bedroom. The sunrise from there is stunning and the night time sounds can be intriguing. There is a washer/dryer in the cabin, so bring some laundry detergent next time and wash the towels at "home", or we are happy to do the towels for you. We look forward to seeing you again.

We enjoyed our stay! The chalet was beautiful, clean and well maintained. I loved the light streaming in each morning...enjoyed the sunrises! See why the name "Early Dawn"!! Loved the multi-level, though as seniors it was a bit more exercise than we wanted. Only drawback was the very close proximity to several other cabins...especially directly across so you had to be completely dressed to go up and down levels since the front is all glass exposing the stairways. I loved the place and husband too except for the stair issue. Would stay again! Staff,also always,gracious, helpful and friendly. Also made good use of the pool table and hot tub, tho we did have issues with that tub...rather operator error or problems, they came to correct the problem quickly and have now posted instructions. Beautiful place, good memories! Highly recommend!
Thank you for the review and hope you had a house coat with you. Never thought about that, but you are correct! So, if you are reading this review for your next stay, bring a house coat! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and got the help you needed with the hot tub. We look forward to your next visit.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Early Dawn as this was the second time. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed.<br/><br/>We enjoyed the screened porch and porch outside the kitchen. A mama bear with four cubs visited the area daily. <br/><br/>Mountain Laurel Chalets does an excellent job managing their chalets. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. It was easy to exchange linens as it was located on our way out of town. <br/><br/>I recommend Early Dawn to families and couples.
Thank you for the review and the kind words about our team. We try hard to meet or exceed our guests expectations and treat you as family. The momma bear and four cubs are still roaming the neighborhood every day, so we remind everyone to Lock Your Car Doors! We hope you will return to enjoy more mountain time soon.

This was a beautiful home in a fantastic location. Downtown Gatlinburg is very close and you are on the best side of Gatlinburg to get to the park to hike without driving through town.<br/><br/>The home was beautiful and we loved the layout. We had one issue where the AC went out and it was 87 degrees. They were not able to fix it that night, but someone was there the next morning. They did provide a refund for one night for the inconvenience. We were very pleased and would stay here again.
Thank you for the review and we are sorry the AC went out on you. We have great vendors and they came as quickly as they could considering it was a holiday and town was packed. We are glad you enjoyed the chalet despite the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you again.

Great location. Can be in Gatlinburg in 5 minutes. Easy to get to. Very clean and plenty of room for two or four. Not good for seniors because if you stay in the upstairs master you have to horse your suitcases up narrow staircase. No shades in the staircase windows, and they are big, and also none on the windows overlooking the view. Neighbors on the road above can see right in the staircase area and somewhat into other parts of the house. Not the best for privacy as a result. You enter the house on a staircase landing and not into a room, so everything you bring in must be taken up or down stairs. It is a challenge to fix breakfast with the sun blaring right in. Master suit TV quite small. Overall a very nice place with these minor exceptions.
Glad you enjoyed your stay. We will let the owner know of your concerns about the windows and TV. Do not hesitate next time to call us and we can recommend chalets with few to no steps for your convenience. Hope to see you again!

This chalet is beautiful inside and out. Early Dawn is very easy to get to. The only things I didn't care for were all the steps and the open views in the front of the chalet. I think some window shades in the front of this chalet would be nice, because the people in the chalet above us could see everything we did. I didn't feel like I could walk around in my pjs at night with all the exposure. The people above us were on their porch every night. Love Mountain Laurel's Staff. This is the only chalet rental company we use when we come to Gatlinburg. Thanks Mountain Laurel for your wonderful hospitality!
Thank you for the wonderful review of our chalet. We will speak to the owner concerning your privacy issue. So happy you loved our staff as we are here to help in any way. Hope to see you again soon!

We had a great time at Early Dawn. We checked in late but everything was where we were told it would be. We went by the office the next morning to sign our paperwork. The cabin is very well equipped, if you need something just ask the office, they have extra supplies. There are a lot of stairs! The pictures are very true to what you will find. The drive up is steep but doable. The only downside was the hot tub died after only one use, the maintenance man told us it was one of their older ones and they were expecting it to have issues soon. I wish they had fixed or replaced it earlier. The maintenance man did come quickly to check on it. We want to stay here again and we have never said that about any previous cabins.
Thank you so much for your great review of Early Dawn. The hot tub is up and running and hopefully we will see you again soon.

Good location, clean, each level has a nice deck, plenty of amenities.<br/>It was only two adults, stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our visit.<br/>We gave a three star for general condition because one of the sofa seats was broke and you could not sit on the end of the sofa. The light over the stove did not work, a kitchen ceiling light was out, and three lamp lights were out. The bulbs just needed to be replaced. The biggest thing was lack of privacy in the front of the house. The entrance is all glass for all three floors so the chalets across the street can see you walking up and down to your bedrooms and living area, and when the people across the street are sitting on their balcony can see directly into the dinning area. Would be nice to have shades at least on front window and door for privacy when sitting at table dinning. It was a nice Chalet but we would not rent again because of lack of privacy in front of house. This may not bother some people.
Thank you for the review. Good or bad, we appreciate your input. Maintenance went to the house after you reported the light bulbs being out and replaced 4. The living room sofa and love seat were also replaced by the homeowner. Please call and remind us about your issue with the windows and we will find the perfect chalet for you on your next visit.

This was our second visit to Early Dawn, in three years. The cabin is well laid out with bedrooms located on the top and bottom floor. Common living quarters and nicely equipped kitchen on the middle floor. The cabin is spacious, clean and well kept. Early Dawn is just minutes from Gatlinburg for any last minute items. We always find the staff at Laurel Mountain friendly and very helpful. This cabin is highly recommended for family and a couples retreat.
Thank you for the nice review and the kind words about our team. We appreciate your return visits to Early Dawn and Mountain Laurel. One of our core valves is to treats our guests as family, but great customers like. you make that easy! We look forward to seeing you again.

The big rooms and layout of the house, plus 3 decks, makes it a great place for a small family or two couples to be together, but still have space to spread out.I love when you said "do it again the next day".

We enjoyed our stay at Early Dawn. It is located in a great spot - not too far up the mountain. Parking was easy. My only complaint would be that it does live up to it's name. You will be up at Early Dawn if you don't bring a sleep mask. The sun flows in at all angles very early. Other than that, the house is a great rental! We love staying with Mountain Laurel Chalets!
Aren't sleep masks great? However, seeing the sunrise over the mountains is a glorious site as well. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return.

This was our first time staying at Early Dawn and we were very pleased. Everything was perfect. Plenty of room in this chalet. The upstairs bedroom was larger than most and very comfortable. If there was a negative it would be the view wasn't as good as most of the chalets we've stayed in but it would not keep us from renting this chalet again.

Nice clean chalet, could use a few non-decorative upgrades. The chalet is 3-story with split bedrooms which is nice. The 3rd floor is the master suite. Both bedroom mattresses are quite firm. Also, the washer and dryer is very small. Further, if you dislike climbing stairs, this chalet requires many trips up and down. As soon as you walk in front door, you have to ascend or descend stairs. Forgetting something or leaving something upstairs or downstairs seems to be a constant. Especially as you are gathering your towels, etc. However, the chalet is very clean, has a nice winter view and an excellent hot tub. Probably the best hot tub we have ever had while staying with Mt. Laurel. It holds its temperature well. Also, the chalet comes with an extremely nice stainless steel gas grill that cooks evenly. The main floor plan is nice and open and the screened porch in the master suite is an additional plus. Lastly, as seen in the photos, the jacuzzi tubs in both bedrooms are very comfortable. We did not use the jets but unlike most tubs that are uncomfortable after about 10 mins, you can stay in these for quite awhile. Again as always, Mt Laurel was great in taking care of their guest. I would recommend this chalet. I wish the mattresses were less firm and much more comfortable.
Thank you for the review. The house has many nice features including the built in stair stepper. You get exercise without having to leave the house! We are glad you enjoyed the chalet and if you need a chalet with less steps, please call the office and let them know. See you soon.

Great stay

My wife two year old son and I decided to rent this cabin and we are extremely glad we did! A beautiful property with views of the tram and downtown. It was easy to get to the parkway and the time spent in the cabin playing pool or in the hot tub was enjoyable. We hope to be able to rent again soon!

Very nice space and loved the screened in porch on upper floor. a bit close to tram but beautiful at night. Lock your car- bear tried to get into car last night and left paw prints on doors but amazingly no damage! Also saw Mama bear and 2 cubs same evening walk right in front of house! Would stay here again for sure.

I like that the property did not have a lot of knick backs sitting around for my kids to get into. It was well kept. The parking is a little tight and the view wasn't quite as good as we expected. But over all we had a fantastic time. We spend 7 nights here and it felt like home.

Beautiful property, great location! The pictures of this chalet are exactly what you will enjoy at Early Dawn. Spacious, clean, and well maintained. The staff was incredibly helpful and responsive-we needed help with a few things upon arrival and Hap arrived within minutes to help us. Just a couple things to call attention to - for those who expressed concern about the steep hills getting to the property, I say, yes. Yes, you are in the mountains and the road is steep. I put my CRV into first gear and had no problems on the steepest portions. And, if you have knee or stair issues you may want to seek another property; for us it worked great having sleeping quarters separate from the living area. And, being super close to both downtown Gatlinburg and the National Park Visitor Center was a bonus. This is definitely a repeat visit! Thank you Mountain Laurel Chalets.

An excellent experience!

Early Dawn was all that we expected. We spent two weeks in Gatlinburg with family. The facilities were perfect for relaxation in the mountains. The kitchen was well stocked and large enough for all. Our 2 year old grandson had plenty of room to run while remaining safe. He especially liked watching the birds and the bears from the elevated decks. Several bear families made nearly daily visits. Looking forward to our next visit to Early Dawn. Kudos to the staff of Mountain Laurel Chalets for their friendly professionalism.

We enjoyed our stay in Early Dawn. The cabin was well appointed, and the kitchen was especially well equipped, which was very nice. Everything was very clean. We loved having the grill set up outside!<br/><br/>If I had to make some suggestions for improvement though:<br/>They recently cut down two pine trees across the street and as a result when you get in and out of the soaker tub in the upstairs bedroom, you and the cabin across the way (the third-floor balcony) will be getting 'intimately' acquainted. Perhaps some drapes or some type of screen that you could set in front of the tub would be most helpful for those of us who are modest.<br/><br/>It also might be time to fine-tune the trash detail. While the city did come by at some point to empty the cans, there were a fair amount of loose trash items in the bin that were not picked up.<br/><br/>I might also suggest that as part of turning the cabins all TVs be checked and reset to their original condition; a how to guide for the remote control system would be most appreciated too! However we've rented cabins from several companies throughout the US, and the TVs always seem to be a challenge with their remotes so perhaps this is a universal issue<br/><br/>As a returning guest we specifically targeted Gatlinburg and wanted to rent again from this cabin company after the horrible fires of last year. We had such a gracious welcome last time. I know the community has been through a very difficult time. so I don't want to judge; however, our welcome this time was... pleasant, professional, and... perfunctory. I missed the warm welcome we had last time, one that I especially would have expected as a returning client.

We stayed 3 nights and was so pleasantly happy. The chalet was beautiful inside and a bonus was a screened in balcony off the main bedroom. The chalet was immaculately clean and bright. I would definately stay there again. It was also fairly close to town. The only negative thing I could possibly say is the one road getting to the chalet was the steepest one I have driven on since I have been going to the smokies.

Mt. Laurel chalets, early dawn. The chalet was immaculate. It came with all amenities and was a very cozy and comfortable place to stay. Our time in Gatlinburg and pigeon Forge was phenomenal. The sites and scenery and things to do in and around Gatlinburg and pigeon Forge were endless . I will definitely return as we were not able to cover many things that were still available to us. The staff at Mount Laurel chalets we're very informative and helpful as well as friendly and courteous . I would highly recommend mountain laurel chalets to anyone.
Thank you Russell - We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us and hope to see you the next time you get a chance to spend time in the Smokies.

This is our 2nd time staying at Early Dawn and this is where we will return to stay while our own 2 chalets are being rebuilt. It brought healing and a special sense of serenity an peace. It was exactly what we needed and staying at Early Dawn gave us exactly that. Loved the open layout, the sanctuary bedroom and bath upstairs, the privacy of another bedroom and bath downstairs and the cozy living area.

Early Dawn Chalet is great place to stay when visiting Gatlinburg. It is very close to town, but secluded enough to give you the mountain getaway experience.

We had a great time at Early Dawn for our family vacation. The house was neat and clean and all amenities were in excellent working order. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings along with the pool table. It was very easy to get to and only minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. It was very crowded the week we stayed so trying to get to your shows on time was a little tricky at times. The office was extremely helpful and supplied clean towels, paper products and anything else that was needed. That was very nice! Overall a great place to be staying for the new year and cant wait to come back!
Thank you! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and are looking forward to your next visit!

The cabin was beautiful. 3 stories, a full home away from home but better! Set high in the mountain with beautiful views. We will most definitely be back one day! I miss it already.

Early Dawn has beautiful views, especially from the upper floors. The night view of Downtown Gatlinburg is also very nice. It has 2 king-size beds, one each on the top and bottom floors. Both bedrooms also have large jacuzzi tubs. The room downstairs has blinds on the windows if you're not an early riser. Early risers will enjoy being woken by the dawn if they choose to sleep upstairs, taking full advantage of the large windows facing east. Privacy may be an issue as the cabin across the street is elevated above Early Dawn and can look down into the upstairs bedroom with its jacuzzi tub. The glass enclosed staircase also exposes the occupants to the street as you move from floor to floor - keep that in mind for your trips from the upper room to the hot tub on the bottom deck! However, we felt somewhat secluded on the screen-in top deck with its wonderful views. Also note that this cabin has a lot of steps - the entryway is located between the bottom and middle floors. While we thoroughly enjoyed our week at this cabin, we would not stay here again due to privacy issues and the number of steps in this cabin.

Our vacation at Early Dawn was as expected. The home was clean and well maintained. The only thing that we thought was a little dirty was the grill. The first night we stayed there, we were tired from driving from Pensacola Florida that we wanted to just stay home and cook. We opened the grill to grill some steaks and noticed it was REALLY filthy. Everything else was GREAT.

Early Dawn was just perfect for our couples getaway! We were not too thrilled with the Myrtle-beach like tourist strip, nor the horrendous traffic. But luckily, our cabin was perfect for dinner at home (on the propane grill), and our long daily hikes. The home has everything you need, and management was attentive and helpful. We recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Gatlinburg! The bed downstairs, however.. could use a little love. very squeaky. :)

The Chalet was comfortable. We had a great view of the mountains. We also had a visit from a few black bear cubs. The chalet was equipted with everything we needed.

Beautiful, restful, away from it all

The cabin was lovely and well-appointed. Just a couple of caveats: the parking is tricky. Don't bring your Hummer or you'll never manage it. Also, it was a bit like living in a fishbowl. Every trip up or downstairs was on full view. The owners really should invest in some shades or curtains, at least for that highly exposed stairwell. Otherwise it was wonderful. Three decks, a game room, two jacuzzis... it was definitely one of the nicest Gatlinburg stays we've ever had.

We took our granddaughters to Gatlinburg the last week of July. This cabin offered 3 floors with bedrooms on the 1st and 3rd floor with kitchen living room combo in between. I really liked that. The place was very clean and nice. Pool table and Hot tub. Girls liked that. Parking was a little tight but otherwise private but close at the same time. 3rd time with Mountain Laurel Chalets. Good company to work with. We of course will be back.

Stay was wonderful at Early Dawn ! Location was great.....easy to get back and forth from town, not too far up the mountain and close to park entrance. Property was clean and well maintained. Had a partial view of mountains, as trees blocked some of the views. Check in/check out very easy. Would definitely recommend.

Awesome as Usual!

Hadn't been to Gatlinburg in 8 years, but had always stayed at this property in prior visits. Nothing has changed at this property, it still holds the sophistication and charm it always did. This property is perfect for two couples who like to have their privacy. Love the fact it's so close to the park entrance!

Great vacation experience. Wanted more solitude than the town hotels offered and found Mountain Laurel Chalets to be the perfect alternative. Close to the park without the crowds. I highly recommend.

We had a good stay in Early Dawn chalet and were married on the deck with a beautiful mountain view between the trees. My only recommendations would be a new cover for the hottub and more water pressure in the shower. But definitely a special place to stay.

The cabin is a great place to stay be or two couples. There are bedrooms in the first and third floor with living room and kitchen separating them on the second level. Each bedroom has a whirlpool bath and shower. It is located close to the strip. The hot tub only had two jets working but I was told it would be repaired. Before booking this cabin, I was verify that it was working.

the cabin was very clean and fully furnished. The layout is great for two couples who want privacy but still would like a place to spend time together. It was nice to be so close to Gatlinburg although the location was a bit noisy at times. The cabin is very close to the road. We enjoyed our stay.

this is by far the best chalet we have stayed in. the updates are obvious in this chalet. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable. there is nothing you need to bring except your personal items. When we arrived we were very ready for a vacation and was very relaxed when we left. Even though it is only a 2 bedroom there is plenty of space and privacy. The pool table was a nice touch and something relaxing to do on the couple of rainy nights we had.

Early Dawn was exactly as described. It is a lovely home with an incredible view of the mountains and even a view of the Ober tram passing by. We would definitely stay here again. Loved how close to town it is yet still high on the mountain for a great view.
