The entire family loved our extended weekend stay at Sugar Shack Chalet! We checked in on a Thursday evening and hiked Chimney Tops and Mt LeConte on Friday and Saturday. The leisurely morning views and the hot tub were the perfect way to recover from our hikes.
The whole place was very clean, the beds were large and comfortable and the deck and hot tub had amazing views. We will definitely be looking to book the Sugar Shack Chalet on our next visit to the Smoky Mountains!
This is a great cabin located about 10 miles from downtown Gatlinburg - out of the hustle and bustle yet convenient to the park as well as town. We liked this location because it was quiet and we could commute into various areas of the park fairly easily. There is a grocery store, a liquor store, a golf course, and a few restaurants within 5 miles of the cabin for added convenience. We spent our days hiking in the park and our evenings in downtown Gatlinburg or relaxing on the deck.
The cabin is located about a mile off the highway up a couple of steep but well maintained side roads. The view of the Smoky Mountains is fantastic from the deck!
This cabin is very private nestled amongst a handful of similar cabins. It is perfect for 2 couples plus there are sleeping options for a couple of additional guests.
I booked this room Thursday and am here on Saturday for my best friends 50th birthday. When I tell you this is better than I could ever imagine. Wowzers.... it is amazing. The views are probably the best in Gatlinburg.
The chalet was very clean and orderly, and the necessary items we needed to get us started were provided.
I will have to say, I could not drive up the mountain and my anxiety set in, but once we came up and went back down, the next time it was no problem. Just glad I had my Lexus, GX 460 with 4wd.
The only thing I do wish is the large tub at the top of the stairs by thr master bedroom had door for privacy.
The decorations are nice and we felt so cozy.
My only regrets are we haven't seen any bears yet, and I didn't meet the owners. Fred and Pat are fantastic. Answered all my questions quickly. Pat called me when I didn't receive my email confirmation (due to me typing it incorrectly) ha! But she got it worked all out. I appreciate how kind they were allowing us to come a little early if we needed to, but didn't even end up make it getting here until after 3, since we stopped in town first for a while.
When we head back to Gatlinburg again, I will be checking to see if The Sugar Shack is available.
If you are on the fence about renting it, go ahead and jump on over and book it, you won't regret your decision!!!
First let me say the pictures do not do this place justice!! My husband and I were supposed to go on vacation to FL and after Hurricane Irma our plans had to change. Fred and Pat were awesome to work with when we were trying to find somewhere to go for a long weekend. This is a true mountain chalet, beautiful views and nature all around. The drive up to the Sugar Shack does have some steep roads but nothing my RAV4 couldn't handle. I do suggest bringing a flashlight, it's pitch black at night and although we never lost power it would be nice to have on hand. We LOVED the jacuzzi tub inside, so much so we never used the hot tub! We also stayed in one night and played UNO and watched TV, they have puzzles and other games which I thought was nice. Their really isn't anything missing from this cabin....maybe bring a blanket if you want to snuggle up on the couch.
We will definitely return and we had an amazing time!!! It gets you away from the tourist attractions but still close enough to do it all while you're there. Highly recommend this for couples or a family, plenty of room.
This chalet was all we hoped for and more! We are already planning a return trip. I highly recommend this rental. The sights of Gatlinburg were nice but we would have had no problem staying in the whole time!
