Welcome to Le Rendezvous, a dreamy Gatlinburg vacation rental perched atop the picturesque Ski Mountain! Nestled amidst the tranquility of the Smokies, Le Rendezvous boasts privacy, peace, and those mesmerizing long-range views that make your heart skip a beat. It's not just a rental; it's your personal haven, conveniently close to the excitement of Ober Mountain resort, the wonders of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and the vibrant energy of downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.

Step into a world of cozy charm as you ascend a single flight of stairs to the main deck. Here, one-level living awaits, inviting you to unwind in rustic-chic elegance. Sink into plush furnishings arranged around a wood-burning fireplace, with a generous TV mounted above it, promising delightful evenings of relaxation.

But the fun doesn't end there! Engage in friendly banter and playful competition around the pool table (just beware: the loser might find themselves doing the dinner dishes!).

Nearby, a dining area for six beckons, perfect for shared meals and rousing game nights. Adjacent, a galley-style kitchen stands ready, fully equipped for your culinary adventures – just bring your favorite groceries, and you're all set to create memorable meals.

Sleep comes easy in Le Rendezvous's three cozy bedrooms – two kings and one queen – each a hideaway of comfort and peace. The king bedrooms come complete with private TVs. Need more sleeping space? A bonus room offers an additional queen bed. Additionally, two full bathrooms serve guests, one with a shower/tub combo and the other with a brand new walk-in shower.

As you step outside, the magic continues. A wrap-around deck offers views that seem to stretch on forever, showcasing both wooded beauty and the majesty of the mountains. Immerse yourself in the warm waters of the four-person hot tub, tucked away for ultimate privacy, or channel your inner chef at the charcoal grill for a meal enjoyed al fresco. There’s even a hidden spot nestled in the woods that’s perfect for quiet meditation or simply losing yourself in the whispers of the wind and rustle of leaves.

Guests of this Gatlinburg chalet rental have access to three clubhouses, the closest to Le Rendezvous being the S. Baden Clubhouse, which has a large outdoor pool, changing rooms/showers, shuffleboard, horseshoes, a playground, tennis courts, a gym, and a game room with billiards, ping pong, foosball, checkers/chess, and video games.

Great weekend
Great weekend! We always love our stays with Mtn. Laurel and this one was great too. This cabin is at the end of a dead end street which I really liked. The deck is very nice. The driveway looks like it might be tricky but our minivan handled it just fine. The bears were very active around us too which we really enjoy.

Bear Watchers Delite
We have stayed at Mt Laurel Chalets in the past but have not been back since the fire. As expected, their Chalet was clean, and their staff was welcoming. The view was magnificent, and we saw bears every day. A couple of close encounters so if you're in this one be conscious of this fact. Our family loved it! The only thing I would want people to know is that the drive up and driveway is not for the lighthearted. We had a full-size Ford Expedition which was almost too big for the turns and steep uphill driveway. Once you got the hang of it was manageable. Even saying this I do not mean for it to be a negative just trying to give a heads-up. We will be coming back to this Chalet next year just in a smaller SUV.

Accommodating and courteous
We found the company accommodating and courteous, appreciate any businesses that support local store owners and their craft. Would like to have had better access to a device charging table or area since we each had to keep our phones charged- some of the electric was a little wonky! Very happy to have been able to do the visit with you!

Home away from home
My family has been coming to Gatlinburg since my husband and my honeymoon in 1996. We have never repeated a chalet except for this one. The price point is perfect. The driveway is rough but I know in the mountains that is not unusual. Mountain Laurel always makes us feel welcome. We can't wait until our next visit. Gatlinburg is my home away from home. Thank you all for your hospitality.

Nice Chalet. Not enough closets. Pool table small. Roads tight and curvy. Bears walk right on deck you cannot enjoy hot tub nor deck. A bear attacked my Jeep top, so had to replace that. No movie channels.

Excellent Experience!
My family stayed in this Chalet for 4 nights to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday. It was an excellent location and was close to everything we wanted to do. There were great views and we had everything we needed in the cabin. We ran into a few bears during our stay (a few snuck up on us so make sure you’re being alert) and we were able to admire them. It was relaxing to sit in the hot tub after a long day of adventures. Overall it was a great chalet and I wouldn’t defiently come back!

Great Family Get Together!!
July 17-21. We had a wonderful time at Le Rendezvous. The views are to die for! The layout was great. Loved the rain shower in the bathroom. The hot tub was very relaxing in the evenings. We had a Momma Bear and her cub visit our place one afternoon. The cub actually played in the trough up the steps from the grill. They then proceeded around the balcony to the steps leading down to the driveway! The family group has decided that a return trip to this rental is a must. We enjoyed AnaKeesta; pancakes at the Pancake Pantry; music at Moonshine Holler; and people watching!
Ronney H. - Posted: 7/17/2022
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Le Rendezvous! It is a beautiful property and the view is just an added bonus! It sounds like you and your family were able to take advantage of all the great things that Gatlinburg has to offer; great views, food, music, and bears! We look forward to hosting you all again soon!

Disappointing
The view was stunning, and we really enjoyed the pool table. Unfortunately, we were disappointed in the condition of the chalet. The refrigerator was very outdated and had a cord inside to hold items on the door. The coffeemaker wouldn’t make a full pot of coffee, without clogging up. The dressers in the bedrooms were not useable because the drawers wouldn’t open. The property needs updated and repaired.

Wonderful getaway
I've been renting from Mountain Laurel Chalets since 1998 and have probably stayed in 15 chalets. I've never had a bad experience and Le Rendezvous was no exception.
Beautiful, clean, and a spectacular view. We saw bears every day there. It was a wonderful, relaxing vacation.

It is so great that you continually come back year after year, thank you for allowing us to serve you for that long! Le Rendezvous is a perfect chalet for a family vacation, and we are glad to hear that you got to see some bears. We love our bears up here! Looking forward to your next stay with us.

The major recommendations we have are 1) refrigerator needs to be upgraded, not enough space and 2) Couch and furniture is looking very worn & old. The GOOD part is - We really enjoyed our stay and experience. We've never been disappointed by any of the Mountain Laurel Chalets we've rented over the years.

A treasured memory
We came to Gatlinburg for a small destination wedding because I wanted to have it in the mountains where our ancestors were born. This cabin made an already special time even more wonderful! It's truly lovely and the view is unsurpassed. Please note that timid drivers will probably struggle with the road and driveway; both are VERY steep and have hairpin turns. It wasn't a problem for us. The ONLY negative was the beds. My mother is disabled and she had to sleep on the couch because the mattresses are very cheap and very hard! My husband (Ahh!) and I slept fine, but our king bed was the exception. Aside from this the cabin was perfect.
Leesha A. - Posted: 10/12/2021
Thank you for coming to Gatlinburg and spending your special day with us! We love being even a small part of our guests celebrations. We are so sorry to hear about the mattresses, we always want to exceed our guests expectations, and we certainly do not want them to have to sleep on the couch. It sounds like other than that you all had a fantastic stay, and congratulations to you both!

Excellent Family Property
We enjoyed our 2nd stay at this property. The house is in very good condition, the furniture is comfortable, and there is plenty of room for a large family. Like many of these houses, the driveway is a bit steep and can be tricky to navigate, but that's the case with most others as well. We did encounter bears at the house on more than one occasion, so you'll need to be alert and aware of your surroundings. We had a great time and would highly recommend this property.

Great place to spend a week!
We had a great time here. The beds were nice, everything was clean, everything worked, and the place is maintained nicely. We did see a lot of bears, so the warnings came in handy. Lock your car doors. At least twice that we know of, the bears tried to get in our cars. The bears like the tub in the ground - and they LOVE the hot tub cover. I'd suggest replacing it as there are some holes in it. It added adventure to the experience just getting up the mountain to the cabin. Everyone agreed that it was worth the trip up and down the mountain because the views were so spectacular. Thank you Mtn Laurel Chalets for helping to make this vacation one that we all will remember!

Beautiful Mountain Retreat
We had a wonderful time in this gorgeous home! Clean, beautiful, modern, and best of all- we got to see 6 black bears! One actually came strolling across the deck and went down the stairs while we were outside! Didn't pay any attention to us. (Of course, we got out of the way!) We also got to see a Mama and 3 cubs in the back yard from the balcony and 2 of the cubs climbed up a nearby tree. We have lots of great photos and videos! We had a great time exploring Gatlinburg, Smoky Mt. Nat'l Park, Clingman's Dome, walked across the SkyBridge, did a moonshine tasting, hiked the Alum Cave Trail, and rode the Ober. It was great and we are very happy we visited Gatlinburg and chose Le Rendezvous! It was stunning! The only thing that I will say is in order to get this spectacular view, you will be driving up pretty steep roads and the driveway is pretty steep also- but it's worth it!

Love the view and the Bears
We loved our stay at Le Rendezvous Love the decor and layout of the chalet. This was our second year staying in this cabin, the bear activity is what brought us back this year. We were fortunate to see Momma and 4 baby Cubs. A curious bear tore the gas lid off our car, after trying out the locked doors. We absolutely loved our stay there, as we love Mountain Laurel. The only chalet company we have rented from for years. Look forward to our next stay.

Spectacular View
The cabin itself is beautiful. Love the layout, the rooms were a good size. The beds were not that comfy, almost thought they were about to break. The kitchen was lovely. During the cold nights, I was surprised the inside was warm. Very well insulated. The driveway needs to be repaved, there are major potholes. Other than that the cabin was great!
Anonymous - Posted: 3/15/2021
Thanks for the review and we will make sure the homeowner gets your comments. He will be here soon and always has a project or two to work on. The driveway is always on his list. Mountain drives are hard to maintain when there is no room to maneuver big equipment, so he keeps filling the pot holes until a solution can be found. We appreciate your feedback and hope you can come back soon.

We loved the cabin. So cozy and had everything we needed. Arrived at night when it was snowing. The driveway was a little tricky but worth it. Woke up to some of the most amazing views. The only thing we thought might be helpful would be to have the option to have wood delivered to the cabin ahead of time. Otherwise wonderful experience.
Debbie V. - Posted: 2/1/2021
Debbie, we are glad you enjoyed the snow and your time at Le Rendezvous. The office can arrange for firewood to be delivered to your cabin prior to your arrival. We sell bundles from October to March and if you buy 10 or more bundles, we will deliver. Keep that in mind for your next winter adventure to the mountains and we hope to see you again soon.

Great Little Get Away
The cabin was great and had a great view. Only thing was the parking was on a step grade downhill so you had to be careful loading and unloading.
Kelley G. - Posted: 1/27/2021
Thanks for the review and you are right about the driveway being on a slope. Backing up from the turn is sometimes helpful with unloading your vehicle. Funny story about the homeowner and the bear. He was unloading his car last spring and left the door open with his groceries inside. Unfortunately, Mr. Bear helped himself to a pizza, so ALWAYS remember to lock your car doors, even if you are going straight inside and back out! We hope you can come back soon.

Had a great time at Le Rendezvous. Cabin was spacious enough for our family group of 8. A few minor glitches upon arrival - stove didn't work and one of the two toilets was stopped up but Pam got right on it and issues were quickly resolved. Fantastic views from the front deck and hot tub on the back deck was a plus!

Highly Recommended Cabin
Le Rendezvous was a beautiful cabin hidden high up in the mountains! If you enjoy staying high on Ski Mountain Road and enjoy single-level cabin...this is your place! 4BR and 2BR! Mountain Laurel was very professional and helpful on multiple occasions! My only advice is the directions to this cabin need to be can be rather confusing (especially after dark). Google Maps also does not have this address correctly when using the GPS. This is just further evidence this beautiful cabin is truly tucked away in the Smokies!
Anonymous - Posted: 12/27/2020
Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The directions have been tweaked a bit, but you are absolutely correct about GPS not working in the mountains. It's better to use our map and written directions. The chalet does offer a magnificent view and is on a very private lot. We appreciate you calling us with your maintenance issues as that gives us the opportunity to provide you with excellent service. We look forward to your next visit with us.

Nice place "Could have been GREAT"""
Overall we had a nice stay at Le Redezvous however there were definitely things that need attention. Let me start with the drive up to the cabin. The roads are steep and narrow which is expected in Gatlinburg. If there were to be any kind of bad weather you may not get up or back down as the roads may not be driveable. Also, the steps to enter are very slick and narrow. BE Careful! Inside, the layout was very nice and at first glance seemed very clean at eye level. The cabinets in the kitchen have greenery above them. The amount of dirt and dust was unbelievable. Please just remove the greenery if it is not going to be kept clean. The furniture in the main area of the house has also seen its better days. Many of the chairs had legs that were about to fall off and the sofa and loveseat need to be replaced. Good furniture at one time, just overused. The bedrooms and the bedding were very nice however the smallest bathroom needs some repairs. Again completely usable, just needs some maintenance. In summary, this is a great property however it just needs some attention. I would stay here again only if the things I have shared have been addressed. It really is a great location with a great view.

Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay and the beautiful view at Le Rendezvous. Your comments on the decor and furniture will be passed along to the owner for his consideration. Please let us know of any maintenance issues that you come across when staying with us. We have staff on hand every day to take care of any problems in the house. It's always a good idea to come prepared for bad weather any time you visit the mountains in the winter. We had a snowstorm on Christmas Eve this year and the roads were inpassable for a couple of days. Fortunately, the city crews were able to get the street clear the second day.

Amazing view
Magnificent sunrises. Property is very nice and clean. It is on top a hill, if you get dizzy on car rides this place is not for you .
Analia M. - Posted: 10/5/2020
Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed the changing views at Le Rendezvous. The trick to getting a good view is getting high up on the mountain, so that does mean driving the mountain roads, but it is SO worth it! We hope to see you again soon.

Amazing!
We have rented from Mountain Laurel Chalets before and have always had a positive experience, but this cabin is our new favorite. We arrived on Friday night and settled in. As we sat down to eat dinner we glanced up and there was a bear walking around on the deck. When he realized we weren't going to share our food he went down the driveway and tried to open both doors on my vehicle.
The driveway to the house is a little awkward to turn into but the spectacular view from the house is more than worth it! The open floor plan was perfect for our family of 5 to spread out. The rental office staff is always very personable and helpful. We can't wait to come back!

Thank you for the review and glad you enjoyed the chalet. The bears are regular visitors at this property and they even have their own bath tub in the back yard! It's so important to always lock your car doors when staying on Ski Mountain as the bears know how to open doors! We appreciate the kind words and look forward to your next visit with us.

Bear haven
Absolutely wonderful. This is the first time in 18 years that we have ever seen bears. We were greeted by bears 4 out of the 5 days we stayed there. The cabin was perfect for us. The furniture needs an update, but it is still quite functional. The deck/railings needs some TLC though. But even with that being said, we would gladly rent this property again and recommend it to others.
Michael B. - Posted: 7/13/2020
Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Le Rendezvous. The bears have certainly been visible this summer and, being so close to the national park, Le Rendezvous is one of their favorite places to hang out. Did you notice the bear tub in the back yard? That is to encourage the bears to bath in their own tub instead of the hot tub! We hope to see you again soon.

Great Location and Views
The cabin is very spacious with a lot of room. The view of the mountains are wonderful. The cabin was clean and tidy. We did see at least 25 bears outside our cabin within our 4 days there. Maybe summer is mating season? The hot tub is nice.
As long as you arent driving a big RV you should be just fine getting up the windy mountain road / drive way. We had an 7 passenger SUV, we just had to take it very easy. The driveway is a hairpin turn in a V shape. We loved it though for nice work outs in the morning up the hill.
The 2 rooms with queen beds didn't have TV's, thats okay though because our kids stayed in those and they had their IPAds connected to the wifi.
Jamie L. - Posted: 7/3/2020
Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your time at Le Rendezvous. Summer is mating season for the bears, but it seems their activity really kicked back up after our shut down in April. They missed their free meal (meaning garbage) and came out looking for food as soon as our guests returned. It has always been a battle, but seems to be more so this year. It is really important to lock your car doors and leave no food inside, not even an empty drink cup. We hope to see you in the mountains again soon.

What can I say but spectacular. This chalet was so neat. Traveling to Gatlinburg staying in a chalet with mountain laurel chalets has always been my go to since our honeymoon 23 years ago. Our children had never stayed in a round chalet and they absolutely loved it. We worked a puzzle,played pool, enjoyed the hot tub, cooked breakfast. It was a big surprise when we woke up on the last day and it was snowing. I would definitely stay in this chalet again and will always recommend mountain laurel chalets as the company to stay with. I appreciate that they don't add tons of fees and are always there if you need them.

Thanks for the review. You are on to one of the best kept secrets when vacationing. It can often times be cheaper to stay in a vacation rentals because you don't have to eat out every meal.

Perfect Getaway
This house is amazing! 4 bedrooms- 2 with queen size beds and 2 with king size! Plenty of room for a family or friend getaway. Me and my fiance as well as two other couples went for a weekend to escape to the mountains before I moved. Although the trek up the mountain is a bit horrendous and I do not advise leaving at night unless you have to, once you are there the view is impeccable! The hot tub is cozy and clean, the house is well taken care of and overall I would advise anyone to stay here!
Ariel O. - Posted: 11/22/2019
Thank you for the review. The drive up the mountain can be a little nerve wracking if you are not used to driving mountain roads, but the second time is easier and by the third time you will be a pro! The road to this cabin are all paved and two lanes wide, no 4 wheel drive required UNLESS you are coming when there is a possibility of snow. We are glad your group enjoyed their mountain getaway and hope to see you I the mountains again soon.

Overall we had a great stay. We saw a bear on the deck twice. The kids loved that! The cabin was gorgeous however it could have been a little cleaner. The floor was dirty staining my nine month olds clothes from where he was crawling. The driveway was a little tricky to get into but once we figured it out it was fine. The view from the cabin was beautiful. I would definitely recommend this cabin.

Nice cabin
The office staff was very nice and helpful. We were snowed in one day but there were puzzles & movies there to keep us entertained. The drive up was a little scary for us just because we aren't used to driving in the mountains. My only complaint regarding the cabin was the lighting. Maybe could've used brighter bulbs or maybe there were some bulbs out? But overall it was a good & fun vacation!

We saw a total of 20 bears from our deck throughout our 7 day stay. The office was convenient, and staff was so pleasant. This was a girls' week away, and the four of us couldn't dream of a more perfect place to stay. Absolutely awesome!

Le Rendezvous--A Great Place to Relax
There were eight of us staying for a weekend at Le Rendezvous. Although the place is listed as three bedrooms, there are actually four bedrooms. One bedroom cannot be counted as such because it does not have a closet.

The kitchen was a galley style with enough room for several people to work in it at the same time. The place is very compact; but there is ample room to socialize and be alone.

The hot tub is out back but just a few steps from a door into one of the bedrooms. The driveway is very steep and I do not see how anyone could negotiate it in snow and ice even with snow tires, chains, and four wheel drive.

The cabin is located at the end of a dead end road so there is no traffic.

It was one of the best cabins we have ever rented in Gatlinburg.

The house was very nice with a great view overlooking Gatlinburg. The staff were very nice when we checked in and out. It is quite a white knuckle drive up the steep and winding road to get to the house - even worse when you meet oncoming traffic. Not easy to get into the driveway either as it was a very sharp angle and steep. Really enjoyed the house, just didn't like the drive up to it.

Thanksgiving 2016 - Success
We have been coming up to Gatlinburg, The Great Smoky mountains for the last 10 years or so for Thanksgiving and have had 3 main cabins we stay in. Le Rendezvous is now our FAVORITE. Best of both worlds: in the mountains and not far from downtown Gatlinburg. Overall cleanliness was good. Looks like some repairs are being done on the house and I would say they needed to be completed. The beds weren't comfortable (think they have plastic covers on mattress) and the silverware drawer was not clean and needs to be cleaned and new silverware would be great! First time also using Mountain Laurel Chalets and they were great! Loved the emails with all of the directions. Good Choice

Perfect getaway!!
The cabin was perfect for our two families. Loved the one floor so our toddlers could run and play. The hot tub was in a perfect spot for privacy. The kitchen had all the items to cook with, not much counter space to work with. The view of the mountains was amazing. The wrap around deck was perfect to sit on for lunch on the picnic table or coffee in the morning. The kids loved the porch as well, lots of room to run around the cabin. The king beds are squeaky. Loved the big flat screen above the fire place. The one bathroom did not have a faucet in it. The previous renter broke it, I guess it was a special order item so we never had a faucet in the one bathroom. But the office did respond to the issue quickly and notified us about it. The location of the cabin was scary at first to get to. I had a hard time getting used to the hills and sharp turns. It was about 10 minutes from downtown. We brought food to cook every night so we didn't have to drive up and down the mountain that much, very hard on the trucks.

Family Vacation
I did expect the cabin to be cleaner, such as the stove, the deck and outdoor seating being swept off and clean. I was surprised that it wasn't stocked with basic essentials such as dishwasher soap, more than one bar soap in bathrooms, some washing detergent and regular coffee and coffee filters. However, this was a very comfortable cabin for my family considering we're a family of 7. The ride up to the cabin was interesting and not bad at all. The kids really enjoyed the place and we cooked outdoors two nights. The best part of our stay there was getting the chance to see a black bear one morning walk to the back of the cabin and cool off with a bath in a tin bucket set out by the grill. Then he made his way around the deck and back down stairs. Pretty awesome for us South Texans. My husband and I agreed we would love to be back.

Rented unit for size, etc. Didn't realize it was at the top of the mountain. A little hard to get to, but the view from the deck is worth it! Saw two bears which thrilled the kids. Enjoyed Dollywood. Only negative is the horrendous traffic. the one main route is bumper to bumper most of the time. Avoid weekends. Thanks for a fun time in a beautiful setting.

The Perfect Retreat!
We are a family of 7, and have a tough time finding accommodations to fit us. Le Rendezvous was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting Gatlinburg. The rooms were spacious, and the views were incredible! Our 5 kids loved every minute of it, and normally they are not excited about where we stay.
The small touches, we noticed. Little bird houses hanging from the ceiling in the one main bedroom. Positive signage throughout...gentle reminders of having a good vacation and enjoying life. The kitchen was convenient, and had all the comforts of home. Full size fridge, oven, etc. Our kids loved the billiards table and the outdoor hot tub. There are two full baths and four bedrooms, with two queen beds and two king beds. The motif was rustic with wood everywhere and a beautiful fireplace in the center.
The cabin was so convenient that we would make dinner each night, saving would-be dinner money for activities like ice skating, mountain coaster, mirror maze, mini golf etc. After staying in Le Rendezvous, I think we won't ever stay in a hotel again! It truly added to the overall enjoyment of our spring break trip.

We rented Le Rendezvous for five days. It was a wonderful experience. The Chalet was clean, beautifully decorated and well appointed. The view was amazing! The second bathroom could definitely be upgraded but it was usable - it was the only complaint we had. The Ski Mountain location was a bonus. We were close enough to downtown Gatlinburg to make it convenient, yet felt like we were staying in the middle of the Smoky Mountains. We would definitely rent this unit again.

Very Nice and Updated, You will see bears here!
I have a family of 5 that stayed in this chalet and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was very spacious, clean and most of the chalet had been recently updated. The wrap around deck is nice, the view is beautiful and fairly private. The only suggestion I have is to upgrade the television in the living room, which was an old analog box tv that was far too small for the spacious room.

We did encounter a bear outside on the hot tub one evening after we went to bed. If you want to see a bear, you definitely have a good chance staying here. We have stayed at many of these chalets and this was the first encounter we had with a bear. As usual Mountain Laurel is spectacular to deal with. We will definitely stay here again.

Best vacation ever
The chalet was perfect. Very clean and the view was spectacular. We had a daily visit from a black bear and the kids enjoyed taking pictures of it. I enjoyed having the family all on one floor, it was open and you were able to talk to everyone.

Fun Family Getaway
This rental unit was more than I expected. I loved the view and condition of the unit. The location was easy to find but had a lot of twist and turns to get to the unit. It had all the amenities I expected and my family truly enjoyed the stay. I would definitely stay again.

Loved our family time at Le Redevous Chalet
The experience and our stay was absolutely positively wonderful! The chalet was immaculately clean,stocked with all necessities,the indoor decor made us feel like we were in a mountain cabin and the view was unbelievable especially at sunrise and sunset! Loved sitting out on the deck in the morning watching the sunrise as I was sipping on my coffee! Pictures on the deck with the mountains in the background make for a spectacular picture. And...YES; you WILL SEE BEARS!!! We had 4 bear cubs and momma visit us daily on the back patio; it must of been their playtime! The octagon shape of the chalet and everything being on one level allowed our family to all be together! The drive up the mountain was exciting but worth it with all the mountain views! The outside ground level of the chalet was under some renovations while we were there but didn't affect our visit. The management staff at Mt. Laurel Chalets were informative and friendly!Definitely will recommend it to our friends and will be back to stay again!

Excellent home away from home!
We LOVED our stay here! Everything was great and the view was amazing. We will definitely come back and stay with Mt. Laurel Chalets, as the people are great and everyone was very helpful. The kids loved seeing the bear on the porch and it really made the trip that much better! We were very close to the park and downtown Gatlinburg, which was perfect as we were also secluded from everyone- which is what we wanted! Awesomeness all the way around for our stay!!!! I definitely recommend getting up early to watch the sunrise! Great views all day long!

Beautiful!
Our stay in Le Rendezvous was fantastic. The cabin was clean and we enjoyed staying there so much. The cabin is very inviting and we loved the way it was homey feeling. I would recommend bringing a skillet if you plan on needing one since the ones there aren't the greatest. The mountain views are wonderful and I enjoyed the sun rises so much. We enjoyed many activities in the area and just enjoyed relaxing in the cabin. Our 14 year old twins are ready to go back. What a great family vacation we had and a great cabin!!

Amazing adventure!
Our experience was great. We absolutely loved this cabin and will definitely rent it again! The scenery was beautiful and the cabin was more than we could have asked for. We saw some raccoons and bear tracks, but no bears (my husband was really hoping he would see some lol). We will definitely recommend Mt.Laurel and this cabin to all of our friends!!!!

La Rendezvous review
It was overall awesome. The cabin is decorated perfectly to go along with the Gatlinburg feeling. We wanted to stay at the cabin the entire time.

EXACTLY WHAT WE WANTED!
I brought my daughter and her family..the grandkids were so excited to stay in a cabin in the mountains as were we adults! Loved the floor plan as we had a 1 year old who could circle and no stairs to worry about. Loved that everything was on the one level..pool table, kitchen, bedrooms so that were all together all the time.Great memories made and even had a bear and cubs visit..icing on the cake! View was amazing. Decor was great..really enjoyed all the old framed pictures of the early years.Thank you so much!!

Best Vacation Rental Ever!
We had the best time in this cabin. It was a very lovely and comfortable. The cabin was very clean and decorated very nice.
The drive to the cabin was a little bit of a challenge, but well worth it. The view was wonderful.
The best part was we had a welcoming party when we arrived at the cabin. We were visited by 3 bears. We really enjoyed watching them climb and play all over the hot tub. (Safely from inside the cabin)We will definitely be back to rent this cabin again.

We absolutely loved this chalet. The best thing, besides the view, was the great big gathering room where we could all be together.

Le Rendezvous
The property was clean and we liked the floor plan. Property was in process of renovation, I think due to some cosmetic work that needed to be done. Location was a little tricky driving-wise.I do not think we will stay at that location again, but will still book through Mountain Laurel. Very good restaurants, beautiful scenery, friendly people, and close to many fine attractions. Great aquarium.

Can't wait to return!
Our rental was perfect for us. My husband and I took our 3 girls for spring break. The view was incredible. The house was clean and had more than enough space for is all. We loved that each of our daughters could have their own room. The ebeds were very loud and my oldest daughter is a light sleeper so she said she woke up every time she rolled over but that was the only complaint out of the 3. Its very secluded surrounded by trees. We woke up every morning early to watch the sunrise. It was spectacular.
The drive up to the cabin is a little hairy but it added to the fun of living on the top of the mountain! My Jeep liberty made the trek no problem.
Overall we all agreed we loved the rental and it really made our stay in Gatlinburg even more memorable.

We love Le Rendezvous
We loved Le Rendezvous and would recommend it to friends and family. It was clean and well maintained. The views from this cabin are wonderful and the sliding glass doors make the outside come in. We asked for a cabin that was up high in the mountains and close to Ober Gatlinburg and this cabin meets both of those request. The driveway is a booger and takes some maneuvering to conquer. The décor and furnishing are very nice. There needs to be a flat screen in the living room over the fireplace and it would be perfect! The hot water heater only allows for one or two showers and took forever to reheat. The hot tub works great! Over all we had a wonderful stay and would stay in Le Rendezvous again.

Our Wonderful Trip to the Mountains
Other than being straight uphill or mountain, the home was lovely. We were traveling with ALL our kids and there was plenty of room to spend time as a family or you could spend some alone time away from the others when needed. We loved the design of the home and you can tell its well maintained. We were excited to see 4 bears on our deck one morning which made our trip complete. Great trip.

Amazing
My wife and I went alone this time but this chalet would easily accommodate 8 as it says. The only thing I recommend / plan to do myself next visit; bring my grilling tools. What I needed to clean the grill (was very clean already) was already there but the utensils for cooking lacked what I wanted however I was able to make do with the kitchen equipment.
Of the several Mountain Laurel properties I've stayed in over the years this is my favorite.

La Escape
We gather every year with friends for an annual Friendsgiving this time of year. This was our 5th anniversary of the tradition and we celebrated in the comfort of La Rendezvous in The Great Smokies. It was pretty great. A few minor, very minor incidents with the cabin (clogged tub mainly, and a bear dug through our hot tub cover and we had trouble with lighting the fire without a starter log) but overall the location, the view, the national park, the service from the front all made for a memorable and enjoyable few days away.

Three little bears
This was our least favorite cabin after renting 7 Mountain Laurel Chalets. The staff was very helpful. They assisted us at 8 at night after being run out by 3 bears playing in our hot tub and a grumpy momma. The floral arrangement that was supposed to be delivered to us was brought to us promptly by the chalet staff. One room smelled bad but the chalet was clean. Kitchen could be bigger for foodies like us. After the three little bears muddied the waters the maintenance staff promptly cleaned it and brought a new cover since they stole ours. Needless to say we were too scared to return to the hottub or our deck.

Beautiful View
The view was stunning! Over all, the cabin was very nice and clean. Had some issues with the stove being dirty and about smoking us out the first night. 2 days later, we realized that the microwave didn't heat. The rooms had plenty of room and storage. The secondary bath could use some updating so it would match the rest of the decor. Would stay again in a heart beat though. The pluses definitely outweigh the negative.

Le Rendezvous Review
We enjoyed our stay in Le Rendezvous. The view from the desk was beautiful. It was a great place to sit, sip coffee and watch the sun rise in the morning. The interior of the cabin was comfortable with plenty of room for the 7 of us. I would stay there again and recommend it to friends. The location was close to Gaitlinburg and convenient to the national park.

Mountain Retreat
Upon arrival we found the driveway to be a bit tricky, luckily we had a 4 wheel drive and was able to back all the way up the driveway. The pictures on the website did not disappoint. It was as beautiful as we had imagined, there was no one around not even the bears that we had so hoped to see. Our family of 5 had plenty of room and we could not have asked for better views. The beds could have been a little more comfortable and quite when you moved. We have rented through MLC before and will definitely use them again.

Had a great stay.
Cabin was awesome, it was clean and looked just like the pictures. It was on the top of the mountain, great views but it took about 15 minutes to get up and down the mountain. Overall though we had a blast.

Chalet in the Mountatin
We had a wonderful 7 night stay at Le Rendezvous. The place was absolutely gorgeous with a wrap around deck. On one side you had beautiful views of the Smokeys and on the other side it was woods in which bears love to come visit. We were eating on the deck one evening when a bear walked up to the deck. We were more interested in him than him in us and many pictures were taken.

One of my favorite activities that week was bikeriding the 11 mile Cades Cove loop when it was closed to traffic in the early morning. We saw 5 bears and the scenery was breathtaking and the whole ride was serene even if it was a bit physically challenging. It is also fun to go into Gatlinberg and do the moonshine and wine tasting.

We would stay at Le Rendezvous again without hesitation. We loved the place and our vacation.

Perfect Spot to Stay
Le Rendevous was an excellent vacation property for our family. We loved every minute of it! We will stay here every time we go to the Smokey's! The view was terrific. We had a nice bear walk through and visit our car to make sure it didn't have any food in it! We played pool every day, when we weren't hiking in the mountains.

awesome place
Le Rendezvous was a splendid place to spend our 3 day family vacation in Gatlinburg. Location is at a nice elevation with cool views from the deck. Cabin is nicely furnished and decorated with plenty of amenities. The 360 degree deck is kinda unique and we loved it. The little bench at the back is great to just relax and meditate. The hot tub is secluded which makes it nice to enjoy. Parking can be a little tough to manage due to the sharp, steep turns, but its a minor inconvenience compared to all the other greats. The whole family loved this place and we would definitely recommend it!!
