The cabin was beautiful - enjoyed every minute.
We had a wonderful time and the cabin was beautiful. Missed seeing the Christmas lights. Didn't want to do the drive up in the dark. First time for us in a cabin and we enjoyed every minute of it.

Schonblick exceeded our expectations!
Schonblick exceeded our expectations!!!! The home was even more beautiful than in the gorgeous pictures on line. I will forever remember my birthday trip because of this home. We compliment the owner of the property for the elegant furnishings that also provided comfort. The soaring ceilings, fireplace, and double doors opening to the bedroom were stunning!! The deck view in autumn made my heart sing! Thank you also to the staff of Mountain Laurel Chalets, they are friendly, knowledgeable, and first class. Everyone was awesome to work with!! Thank you all, if we ever return to Gatlinburg it would be pleasure to return to Schonblick.

Our Home Away From Home
Mountain Laurel is our home away from home. We have stayed there for our 17th year now because the staff is friendly and very courteous and take care of our needs. They are family to us and we enjoy everything about Mountain Laurel. We are already planning our next stay.

Highly recommend!
We have been staying with Mountain Laurel for 30 years and have not been disappointed. The only time we use another rental company is if what we need is not available when we need it. We have over the years recommended Mountain Laurel to friends and family. Staff is always courteous and professional.

Home away from home
Me and my hubs and booked this cabin as an anniversary vacation. Prior to our stay the staff reached out to us to see what we were celebrating. When we arrived they had left an ole Smokey chocolate assortment for our anniversary. The house itself was beautiful. Very clean and cozy. Plenty towels and supplies. We cooked while we were there for breakfast and dinner a couple nights. We even got to see some snow while there! It was an absolutely gorgeous view from the back porch. The drive up was a little scary the first time given it was raining pretty hard. But nothing that would stop us from coming back. We both agreed it truly felt like home and this would be the place we would book to come back for our next trip!

Home away from home
Me and my fiancé booked this trip as a get away for our anniversary. To say the least, this cabin was just as pictured. Very cozy living area. Fully stocked kitchen, we cooked our own breakfast a few mornings and supper a few nights. Very spacious bathrooms and bedroom. And you cannot forget the GORGEOUS view from the back porch. It snowed while we were there as well, which made the experience even more beautiful. The staff even reached out prior to our arrival date to ask if we were celebrating anything special. As we came in, on the kitchen counter, they had left us a box of ole smoky chocolates and a note wishing us a happy anniversary. The staff was very kind at check in as well. The drive up to the cabin was a little scary the first time, given it was raining and freezing cold, but worth it in the end. This home truly felt like a home away from home and we will most definitely be back! All in all, our first anniversary trip here was very successful!

This chalet was everything my husband and I needed. Spacious, secluded, yet close to everything! The road up is a winding, curvy trek but worth it. We saw several bears during our stay as well. The staff was very polite and helpful! Would absolutely revisit & stay with Mtn Laurel Chalets!

So peaceful
We arrived really late but found the house with no problems. Very nice place. I would definitely stay again. Only a few cons but nothing that would keep me from staying again. Only 2 wash clothes could use a few more. Stairs to get into house and could be an issue for some people. A musty smell when entering but not in actual living area. Now the good stuff! Very large rooms. Kitchen was very well stocked. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was large and very nice. The 2nd bathroom was a plus. Couch was comfy. Enjoyed the hot tub and deck area. Nice view. Seen a bear on the first morning at the neighbors. Seen another bear a little too close for comfort the next day. He snuck up behind us as we was unloading our car. I got the door shut but not the trunk and he got in it. My husband scared him away but he came back and was in at a safe distance to enjoy watching him. So don't leave car unlocked and watch your surroundings when outside. Loved having all the books to read. Hopefully this place will be available on our next trip. Everyone in the office was so nice too.

Schonblick, our favorite getaway!
We have stayed with Mountain Laurel's Schonblick since 2006. Every time we go back, it seems the owners have redecorated, painted, new furniture, new bed, and excellence maintenance! While there are no dramatic views (except for a sliver of downtown Gatlinburg) we love the feeling of isolation and being in the woods even though we know we have neighbors on the drive in. I love parking directly beneath the house, protected from weather as you load and unload. Driveway has a turnaround, so you don't have to back into infinity, or risk crashing down the mountain! We vacation other places over the years, but if we are staying close to home, we always use Mountain Laurel Chalets. They are super friendly and very thoughtful, they knew it was my wife's birthday, and had a delicious birthday cake, yellow with butter whipped frosting! They definitely did not have to do that, but that's the special care you can expect when staying with them!

Jeff, we are so glad that you have enjoyed your stays at Schonblick for so many years! It is the perfect place for a quiet, secluded, couples getaway.

This is our favorite mountain laurel chatel.
This is our 2nd year staying at this chatel and it won't be our last. We just love the set up of this chatel with the comfortable bed,large bathroom and shower and the kitchen and living space. And I love having a carport to keep my jeep out of the elements.

Great place for a couple's retreat!
Had a great week with my wife at Schonblick in early June. Only a couple of bear sightings for us, but they only passed by a time or two. It's a pretty steep walk up & down the stairs with your luggage here so pack lightly! The place could not have been any nicer; new kitchen, new bathrooms, and everything worked except the recliner. (handle is missing). The view to downtown was still viewable in early spring; might be more tree cover by late summer though. And as always, the Mountain Laurel staff was great.

it is so great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, Schonblick is the perfect place for a couples mountain stay! Thank you for letting us know about the recliner, we always to have the best for our guests. We would absolutely love to have you back with us soon!

Anniversary Getaway
My wife and I have stayed in a Mountain Laurel cabins for many years. We always stayed in the same cabin and this year we decided to stay in a different one. The choice to stay in Schonblick was a GREAT choice.We were very pleased with the cabin and the location. You could see downtown Gatlinburg from the porch and it was beautiful at night looking down at all the lights. We also had visitors of bears every day from big ones to cubs. All in all this was a great choice and will be the cabin for our fall getaway. We are already planning it. The staff has never been anything but GREAT. Going to miss Cheryl when she retires. Thanks Mountain Laurel for being our home away from home. See you soon.
Billy E. - Posted: 5/6/2022
Yes! Schonblick is always a great choice if you are looking for a beautiful view that is close to the downtown area. It has a cozy atmosphere inside that will be absolutely perfect for your fall getaway! We are so grateful to you and your wife for being loyal to Mountain Laurel; customers like you are hard to replace!

Peaceful Getaway
We had stayed in this chalet before but it had been several years. The owner has renovated recently and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. You can see Gatlinburg in the valley below and at night you can see the lights. The roads to the chalet are a little scary but once you are there, you never want to leave.

Sheri, we are grateful that you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you decided to come back after several years. Schonblick is is perfect for a couples getaway, and inside has a cozy feel that makes for the perfect place to relax. It is in the perfect location to enjoy downtown Gatlinburg during the day, and relax in the chateau at night. We hope to see you back again with us soon at Mountain Laurel!

Best cabin we have stayed in yet.
We have stayed with Mountain laurel chalets many times over the years, and how we have missed this cabin in those times is beyond us. This is the perfect cabin for a couples getaway. The cabin is roomy, the living room is perfect size, and the Master bathroom is great. The view from the deck is a 4.7 out of 5, just needs some landscaping and it would be perfect also. Being at the end of the road is great and plenty of room to turn around to get back out. We spent mote time at the cabin than we had planned to, just because we loved it so much. Definitely on the top of our list for couples weekend.

Great place great view
Beautiful, clean home that was perfect for a post-Christmas getaway. The hot tub was great. The bed was comfortable. Kitchen is equipped with all the appliances and items you may need for cooking at home. We ended up doing that a lot since the drive up the mountain at night is a little scary at times so we tried to be back before dark but the view being up higher was worth it.

Yes Madison! Schonblick is the perfect little chalet for a mountain getaway! We love how cozy the interior is, and it allows for guests to enjoy a relaxing time there.

Everything was wonderful. The cabin was clean and very well equipped. The staff was awesome, as it turns out our grill was out of propane and they were at the door with a full tank within 15-20 minutes. It was really a great experience, we will do it again!

Perfect in every way!
It was my husband's birthday. We wanted a nice place in the mountains with a hot tub built for two. This house was perfect. It is at the end of the short road, making it even more private! We brought food and drinks so we only had to leave when we wanted to experience hiking the trails or downtown entertainment. The bed was super comfy. The kitchen was great. The bathtub and shower were amazing. We could not have been more pleased!

Great Location, Management Company Not Great
We really enjoyed staying at Schonblick. The house is big, quiet and spacious.

The only thing I didn't like is the management company, enough so that I would not book with them again.

They are extremely stingy with everything they provide. For example, there was just enough toilet paper to use and exactly one package of laundry detergent - nothing extra. They said that they would provide more if asked, but do I really want to call the management company for a roll of toilet paper?

I also accidentally left two shirts in the property which they, thankfully, found. But it's been a struggle to get them to ship them to me. Any decent place would have stuck them in a padded envelope and mailed them USPS the day I called.

But not them, they refuse to pay the postage and as result dropped them off at a UPS store that is supposed to call me for my credit card information. 2-3 weeks later I still don't have my shirts, who knows if I'll ever receive them.

There was also an issue with the jacuzzi that wouldn't turn off.

It's obviously my fault that I left them there (this has never happened to me before) and I appreciate them finding them, but they seem to care less about their visitors. A personal interaction I had with them wasn't great either.

There were also no common condiments in the kitchen, such as Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper and such.

We appreciate your feedback and are glad that you liked the house. As has been explained to you in several emails, the entire area is extremely short staffed and we are all working as hard as is humanly possible to ensure that people who come to our area have a wonderful experience. We do care about your stay and your items enough so that one of our personnel took the items to UPS on their own personal time after work and another was answering emails from you while they were at home on their off days. We have to take lost and found items to UPS, we cannot take them to the postal service. UPS packages items safely for us and will contact guests for payment. We could not possibly pay for the hundreds of items that are left each year to be shipped back to their owners. UPS informed us that you have been contacted and your items are being shipped. Their computer system went down and they are extremely backlogged. It is stated in your confirmation that we are happy to supply extra paper products and you are told that at check in. It is also stated in writing on your confirmation that we do not provide items like salt, pepper and such. We don't leave anything edible in the units for our guests safety, we want to ensure that nothing could be tampered with. Anytime you have a maintenance issue such as your jacuzzi all you have to do is call us and would will be happy to send a maintenance man to address your issue. We are sorry that your expectations were not met and hope we can take your suggestions in a positive manner and learn from them.

Home Away from Home
I go to Gatlinburg 2-3 times per year for my favorite restaurants, relaxation and a chance to do some landscape photography. This is my favorite of all of the chalets that Mountain Laurel offers. Easy access, covered parking, a wonderful view of downtown including Anakeesta, yet still quiet and relaxing while being above it all. The chalet is always squeaky clean, nicely appointed and has every amenity one could want for their Gatlinburg and Smoky Mountain getaway. The staff at Mountain Laurel make it even more special and enjoyable, still. Wonderful people! I always look forward to chatting with Pam and Cheryl in the office while checking in or out. The way they treat me, the value I receive and the first class accommodations always make me look forward to coming back. I can't wait for my Fall trip and hope to stay at Schonblick again!

Needing a 3 Day Getaway!!
We really enjoyed Schonblick Cabin! Although the winding narrow road to and fro leaves a lump in your throat. ��
Nice getaway, with nice accommodations! It felt like home.
The balcony has a serene view! Just gorgeous.
Would definitely recommend for any couple needing a few days away!
We only stayed 3 days ( W-Sat) April 21-24th.
Covid safe, as there’s literally no one near you. 4stars.

Not what we were expecting...
This is a nice place with a great view of the mountains. It was nice to watch the sunrise and sunset on the balcony while my husband and I were there. The hot tub is right outside the bedroom which was also very nice, and it has a nice big soaking tub in the bathroom. But upon checking the bed, we noticed 5 or 6 strands of red hair inside the pillowcase, on the pillow, and under the blanket. There were also hair strands on the toilet seats in both bathrooms. Also, the couch had some crumbs on the seat in the living area. I also noticed some of the cups in the cabinet had caked on stains around the rim, then we find out that the guests are supposed to wash their own dishes. I have no issue with that at all, but it makes me think the dishes are not rewashed after the guests leave, so people just put them back in dirty. And at a time like this I definitely do not agree with that. We stayed with Mt. Laurel for our honeymoon a few years ago and had no issues at all, but after this experience I don’t know if we will be going back.

Thanks for the review and we regret you had issues with cleanliness during your stay. We do ask our guests to leave the kitchen clean and provide soap for both the kitchen sink and dishwasher. During the departure clean, the housekeepers wipe down the kitchen with disinfecting cleaner and check for general cleanliness and organization, but they do not rewash every dish. Stains from coffee or red wine may appear on cups even after they has been run through the dishwasher and we are sorry that you experienced that situation. Please notify the office if you encounter problems with the chalet (cleanliness or maintenance) and we will do what we can to make it right. We hope you will consider Schonblick and Mountain Laurel for a return visit.

Amazing views, wonderful house
Heck of a climb to get there but sooooo worth it! The view from the deck is amazing and even cooler at night. We sat outside for hours just taking it all in. The house is beautiful, clean and spacious. Big bathroom and comfortable bed. Hot tub was fun too! Will definitely book again of we are in the area.

Thanks for the review and we are glad to hear you had a great stay at Schonblick. There are so many places in the house to relax and enjoy the scenery, from the reading loft above the living room, to the zero gravity recliners by the hot tub. There is sure to be a perfect spot for each of you. We look forward to your next visit.

Comfortable stay foggy views
Great vacation rental plenty of room for 2 and everything was clean and comfortable. Aside from the foggy drive up the mountain every thing was great. My only complaint would be it’s 2021 can they not install an electronic lock?

Great chalet for a couple
We really enjoy this location and chalet. It was beautiful and had everything you needed. My husband and I went for a birthday getaway. The kitchen is fully stocked with gadgets. We like to cook so that was a pleasant surprise. The hot tub was wonderful to relax and take in the surroundings. We would most definitely stay here again. Highly recommend. We also appreciated your covid friendly check in and check out as well as your cleaning crew.

Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your time at Schonblick. It is a great spot for a birthday celebration! Stay in or eat out, it's your choice. Enjoy a cozy fire while watching your favorite show on Netflick, or cuddle up with one of the hundreds of books and just relax. We prefer to greet our guests properly in our lobby, but want to keep our guests and staff as safe as possible, so for the time being, the office remains closed to the public. We will rejoice when Covid is behind us! Please keep us in mind when planning your next trip to the Smokies.

Amazing nighttime views of downtown Gatlinburg!
Wonderful! Check in/out was simple and the app is perfect. We will rent from Mountain Laurel again! To enjoy spectacular views in the mountains, you have to navigate some curves and inclines. The roads are nicely paved, so just take your time. Nothing treacherous about the drive at all. The home is nicely equipped with most everything you need during your stay. Beautiful, spacious and cozy home. Our favorite stay so far. We’re already looking forward to another visit!

Terri, thanks for writing a review and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Schonblick's night time view of the city in the valley below is magical. The mountain roads can be tricky the first time, but not so bad after the first time and, as you pointed out, they are paved the entire way. Thanks for the feedback on the app too. We hope you are able to come see us again soon.

Great views of downtown, Space Needle & Anakeesta! House was very clean and kitchen was well stocked for our stay in and relax Anniversary weekend. We have stayed in many Mountain Laurel Chalets over the years but I think we’ve found our favorite. Enjoyed watching four bears from the deck and hot tub.

Our Family's Favorite
This was one of several times our family stayed at Schonblick. Beautiful and peaceful location. We decided to stay at Schonblick this year to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday and our much needed family vacation. Our family got to enjoy the beauty of Nature at Cades Cove and Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail as well as some moonshine and wine tasting and also some shopping but was always great to come back to the peaceful cabin. Even if we did not see any bears at the cabin, we certainly saw plenty of bears at Cades Cove and at Roaring Fork Nature Trail. We definitely be back.

Anniversary getaway
Schonblick is large, cozy, and has great views. We especially enjoyed the hot tub, privacy, and quietness this rental provided. The drive up the mountain as other reviews have said is difficult up a narrow and winding road. You can see the cable car through the trees for Ober Gatlinburg from the hot tub. The rooms are large, the bed is comfortable, the shower is large, the kitchen had everything we needed, and there are board games, puzzles and lots of books. The décor is focused on bears which are everywhere around the cabin, although we didn't see any actual bears. We would stay here again, and recommend this rental to others.

Anniversary Get A Way
This was my third visit to the Gatlinburg area and my second time renting a Mountain Laurel Chalet property.
The Schonblick was actually recommended by one of the staff and the house did not disappoint. The pictures actually did not do it justice. The one bedroom house was huge, with high cathedral like ceilings and an open floor concept. The bedroom was also spacious and the bathroom was a married couples dream, with double vanities on either side, a huge soaking tub, a separate water closet and a beautiful stone walk in shower. The home was clean and every piece of furniture was in great shape. There were tons of board games and books and the kitchen had a lot of small appliances, (toaster, coffee maker, blender), which was a nice surprise. The view from the porch was amazing, you could see downtown Gatlinburg as well as the mountains. I was able to get some great photos on that porch. It was quiet and peaceful, definitely the perfect place for a romantic getaway. The climb to the property is a bit treacherous, with lots of twists and deep turns, but we were in the mountains after all.
I was a little disappointed that the one day we were able to use the hot tub, (it rained everyday we were there and the porch has no cover), we discovered that the jets weren't working correctly, so we were not able to use it. Also, both of the screens leading to the porch kept coming off the track, so getting on and off the porch was a hassle and there was always the concern that bugs would get inside the house. Beyond that, we had a wonderful stay. We spent most of our time in the house, but when we did go into the city, we found it way too crowded to enjoy, (Memorial Day Weekend). The streets were crowded, the lines for everything were way too long and the traffic was unbearable. We enjoyed dinner at Cherokee Grill and a little retail therapy at the local shops. All in all a great trip and as always the staff at Mountain Laurel was amazing!

Our cabin was perfect!! We had everything we could have needed to cook (but we didn't cook) the cabin was clean when we arrived. Would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting a nice place for 2 people to get away. The first few trips up and down the roads kinda freaked me out but after getting used to them they weren't that bad. Did see 3 bear cubs on our way down on Sunday. They were adorable from our truck!!

Laid-Back Weekend Getaway in Gatlinburg
This chalet is true Gatlinburg gem! Spacious, comfortable and even offers a carport that's handy for keeping your vehicle cool on hot days, or keeping you dry on rainy days. The view from the hot tub/deck is a stunning combination of downtown Gatlinburg main parkway surrounded by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Very pretty at sunset and sunrise, with all the lights and colors of town against a colorful takes less than 10 minutes to drive down the mountain and onto the parkway, or hang a right and enter the national park. Pam and the rest of the staff at the office are great people and very helpful. They know you are looking forward to your stay and do everything possible to make the experience quick, easy and enjoyable. This town is my favorite weekend getaway and I wouldn't even consider renting anywhere other than Mountain Laurel Chalet Rentals. They are honest, friendly and the absolute best, so why look elsewhere? Save yourself some stress and know that they will handle your accommodations while you enjoy your visit and go make some memories!

Spacious luxury with incredible views!
I always love my trips to Gatlinburg and have stayed in many different places, but after looking at many rental properties online, I kept coming back to this one. The photos and information drew me in, but stepping into the large open living area and seeing the incredible views made me so glad I rented Schonblick. The drive up there was pretty steep and winding, but it was definitely worth it. The chalet was clean and the furniture is very comfortable. I especially enjoyed sitting on the deck at night looking at the downtown Gatlinburg lights and seeing the Ober Gatlinburg trams as they passed by. I also enjoyed having my morning coffee in front of the gas fireplace. Everyone in the office was friendly and very helpful and made checking in and out a breeze. I will definitely rent this chalet again and will recommend it to others. Thank you Mountain Laurel Chalets for offering one of the best rentals in Gatlinburg!

We called Mountain Laurel with the following request: 1 to 2 bedrooms, hot tub, close to downtown Gatlinburg, but private, and overlooking downtown so we could see the lights at night from the deck. They had exactly what we were looking for. We had looked at dozens of cabins and chalets on VRBO, and could not find what we were looking for. We go to Gatlinburg once a year, and will just call Mountain Laurel from now on. We saw their signs at other cabins close to ours, and we now have a map of their properties. Their office was very nice, and their staff is great. We highly recommend this company.

We have stayed in Schonblick many times and it continues to be our favorite Mountain Laurel property. We like that everything is on one floor. The only drawback for us is the stairway we must climb at the entrance. It's getting more difficult for us as we age, but we just can't give it up.

We rented Schonblick for our 23rd anniversary weekend. We couldn't ask for a better place or location! This is located up Ski Mtn, not far from the last stop light in Gatlinburg. Very convenient location to everything in town but far enough away @ the end of the street....surrounded by trees! The night-time view from the deck is nice.....you see the lights of downtown! The king-size bed was very comfortable!
We will definitely return and use this company again for our future stays! Super nice people!

Just as I dreamt
I rent this cabin for my boyfriend's birthday surprise trip for 5days.

We loved every each single of moments.
Everything was so perfect. Though I had planned lots of activities in the town, we often ended up staying in because it was just so...perfect.

Besides the cabin itself, I was amazed how helpful the staff were. I was trying to plan this trip from Japan and had some difficulties with payment since I only had Japanese billing address. They held my reservation a month ahead, even got their tech team to work on the issue and they kept in touch with me the entire time to assure me that it will be OK!

Thank you so much for the dreamy week. We will be back possibly before the summer!

Schonblick Cabin
We had a wonderful time at this House. It is a beautiful cabin with a fantastic view of Gatlinburg. At night time the City is all lit up. Everything worked good. The washer, the dryer worked better than mine at home. We couldn't find an outdoor grill so I used the broiler in the kitchen oven. That even worked better than mine at home. Ribeye Steak came out really good. The King sized bed in the master was very comfortable. The large size sofa was good for watching tv after being out all day exploring. The staff at Mountain Laurel were very friendly and helpful. The roads are a little bit crazy to get used to especially driving up to the house at night but that is what you would expect up in the Mountains. I was reading the Guest Log In Book on the coffee table... it shows that many people are repeat customers. I will be back also. Thank you for letting us enjoy your Home. Carol

We were more than happy with our stay. The view was perfect! The house/chalet was well kept and we had a very relaxing weekend with no problems/issues at all.

Our Stay At The Schonblick Chalet
We visit Gatlinburg often and have stayed at a number of different properties. This one was one of the best! Plenty of room for two and nicely decorated. Would definitely re-visit.

After traveling 5000 miles and visiting 16 States and Niagara Falls it was nice to rest up for 3 nights at our very favorite Chalet in Gatlinburg, we always look forward to our next visit to Schonblick

A GREAT STAY!
We had a great stay at Schonblick! This is a very nice home with a private location and top-of-the-line amenities. A very spacious retreat! Mountain Laurel Chalets is the best in the Smokies!

Weekend Getaway
We have rented tis chalet before because of the views of the city and the bears that walk up to the house. On both nights a mother bear and her cub walked up and we were able to get there pictures from the proch.

Peaceful, relaxing, quiet, comfortable and very affordable. Dead end road. Close to everything but yet far from all the stress.

Perfect in every way
Location is perfect: close to town and yet feels remote and private. The house is spacious and well appointed. Upgrades to the Master bathroom are modern and luxurious. I can't wait to roll the dice this winter and try to book the cabin when it is snowing! The sight of snow falling through those windows surrounding a nice fire must be breathtaking. A perfect home away from he for me and my husband and young son. There are 'some' mountain decor touches here and there, but it is not overwhelming and like some properties.

Schonblick Review
We love staying at this
property, time and time again. There were some issues with a tv and kitchen cabinet door when we first arrived. Other than that our stay was uneventful, nice and quiet, just how we like it. We prefer to find our excitement in the Park.

Pleasant surprise for last minute getaway!
I booked the Schonblick as a last minute getaway trip. There were only a few chalets left for the timeframe that I needed. The Schonblick was excellent. It fit every need I asked for, and was almost completley private. I liked the ability to park my car under the home away from some inclimate weather that came in suddenly. Please don't let the 1BR fool you. This place is very nice, and plenty big enough for a family. Kids could pull out the trundle bed from underneath the day bed in the loft and stay comfortably away from parents as well. You too will love to see and experience the home. The vast array of reading material would have lead anyone to stay for weeks just reading and enjoying the spectacular views. The morning mist and the view of downtown Gatlinburg area was great! My only compaint was small, but the hot tub deck area could have used a little sprucing up. The cover didn't fit snugly and it had allowed some debris in the water that we had to sift out. The door on the side of the hot tub was a little worn as well. Overall the Schonblick hit the spot for some relaxation, especially for a last minute booking. The location was a little difficult to find in the dark, but very private. I'm not sure for the size, location, privacy, cleanliness, and rental price of the home it could be beat. I would reccomend this rental and Mountain Laurel Chalets to anyone. Mountain Laurel stayed late for our late arrival, and were very nice and courteous in doing so.

Wonderful view!
Drive to cabin was a little unnerving as some spots were one lane only, but worth it for the views, the very comfortable chalet and the quiet and relaxation. We would definitely come here again.

Great proximity to downtown
Luckily the weather was nice the week that we stayed otherwise the drive up there mountain could've been a little sketchy. That being said, the house is great, the night view of downtown is awesome, and the view of the mountains in the morning is excellent. We've stayed in Mountain Laurel Properties several times in the past and I've never had and issues with them. Excellent service and excellent property.

Beautiful Cabin!!
We came for a romantic getaway and also it being our first time in the area we were happy we made this choice! As we stepped in the cabin it was exactly how the pictures showed and even better. Cabin is secluded and we felt at peace coming from a very busy city. The cabin is not that far from the main office and it also had everything we needed and more besides us needing to bring our personal belongings and groceries. We were recommended a delivery grocery company and all the groceries were delivered prior to arrival and situated int he kitchen which was very convenient. The cabin is right in Gatlinburg and very close to the downtown area, literally minutes away and also close to the entrance of the Great Smokey Mountains. We loved our experience in the area and glad we picked this cabin, we will definitely be back again next year!

Where are the leather couches?
Overall, we had another wonderful experience at Schonblick. It was our second stay and we absolutely love the place. We did miss the leather couches that were there last time but other than that it was a 10++!!

Home Away From Home
We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Gatlinburg! It's beautifully furnished, the views are excellent, it's 5 minutes from the heart of Gatlinburg and we even occasionally get to see a bear or two!

A Great Experience
Everything was great. Our only complaint was the fact that the porch railing blocked a good percentage of the view of the mountains when you were seated on the deck. We chose the location because we wanted to sit and relax and soak in the mountain view.

SCHONBLICK JUST BEAUTIFUL
THE PROPERTY IT SELF WAS BEAUTIFUL, THE PICTURES WAS NICE ONLINE, BUT TO SEE IT IN PERSON INBELIEVABLE. THE BED WAS COMFORTABLE, THE VIEW WAS GORGEOUS. WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR.

Excellent stay at Schonblick
Our Chalet experience was the best part of our Smoky Mountain trip. Very comfortable and roomy chalet. Kitchen well equipped -- even a salad spinner! We cooked every evening. Quiet and peaceful location. Enjoyed the ever-changing views and our bear visitors.

A beautiful home and a wonderful stay!
Schonblick exceeded our expectations for our stay in Gatlinburg. The drive up the mountain from town was not for the faint-of-heart, but once you have arrived it provides a peaceful and relaxing setting with an awesome view. I highly recommend this chalet and will be returning on future visits to the area.

Everything was awesome. The view was spectacular, and the condition and cleanliness of the cabin was great. My only gripe was not having enough towels to cover the duration of our stay and having to go down the mountain with dirty towels to change them out for new ones. Besides that I would definitely come back and recommend this place.

Secluded, Spotless, Beautiful Furnishings and View!
My husband and I have stayed in a Mtn Laurel Chalet every year since we first used them over 5 years ago. Schonblick is where we prefer to stay, if it is available. It is popular for a reason. You won't be disappointed with Schonblick or any other Mtn Laurel Chalet.

Nice Honeymoon Stay!
We had a very nice time at the Schonblick chalet. The decor inside was wonderful and the king size bed was perfect for a honeymooning couple! As far as my ratings, the only negative was that the hot tub wouldn't shut off and had way too much chlorine. That's something that can be fixed. Otherwise it's a very nice place to stay.
