Enjoy the Bare Necessities at this beautiful 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom Gatlinburg property for 4 guests perched among the trees in the Chalet Village community of the Great Smoky Mountains. The bright blue home is a gem among the greenery, welcoming you home after fun days spent hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, hopping on and off the downtown trolley, playing laser tag and mini golf, and exploring all the Smokies has to offer.
Step inside to an inviting living room with a stacked stone fireplace, plush sectional, flatscreen TV, and homey atmosphere. Spend time relaxing with family here before heading to the fully equipped kitchen (with black-and-stainless steel appliances) nearby for snacks and drinks. The dining table is perfect for family meals, but it’s also a game-night hub when you bring along your favorite card games or board games.
Bedrooms are cozy spaces you’ll appreciate after long days, with comfy beds, bedside lamps for late-night reading, dressers and nightstands, ceiling fans for warmer sleepers, and a bathroom for each bedroom so guests don’t have to share. The cabin also boasts a jetted tub, Wi-Fi for your convenience, a washer/dryer, cable TV, and some nice outdoor spaces with mountain views where you can relax, grill out, and enjoy the views.
Add to all that the convenience of staying in a cabin community! Chalet Village boasts 3 clubhouses with pools, along with game tables, playgrounds, tennis courts, and outdoor yard games to easily keep your entire group entertained and having fun throughout your stay.
Living Room Head back to the living room of Bare Necessities after a fun day at Ober Gatlinburg or taking advantage of the community amenities in Chalet Village. A plush sectional sofa piled with pillows sporting a bear motif is the place you’ll first settle in when you arrive. Pile up for a movie night in front of the flatscreen TV with DVD player or take advantage of the cable TV to watch some favorites.
A small coffee table is great for keeping your snacks at hand, and the gas fireplace is a must for those cool mountain evenings. On hot summer days, flip on the ceiling fan and sneak in an afternoon nap or curl up with a good book and unwind. Whether you’re here as a couple, a family, with friends, or with kids, this comfortable space will feel like home.
Kitchen | Dining Table Well equipped for making snacks, drinks, treats, and full meals (or just reheating leftovers), the kitchen in Bare Necessities boasts black-and-stainless steel appliances, counter space for prepping, warm wood cabinets, and tile backsplash. When you’re ready to feed the family, take advantage of the refrigerator, coffeemaker, ice maker, microwave, toaster, cookware, utensils, dishes and glassware, and a dishwasher for easy cleanup at the end of it all.
If you’re here for the holidays, enjoy creating your favorite dishes together in this warm and welcoming space. Love easy mealtime? Order takeout downtown or just grab some pizza and have a fun game night gathered at the 4-person table here. With an open floorplan, it’s easy to cook, eat, and chat, whether you’re in the kitchen, at the table, or hanging out in the living room.
Bedrooms Two comfortable bedrooms await you at Bare Necessities, outfitted with all the details to make you feel at home. One bedroom features nightstands flanking the dark wood bed, bedside lamps for late-night reading, a large dresser so you can unpack during your stay, a jetted tub, and a desk and flatscreen TV.
The other bedroom features similar amenities but different décor, with nightstands and bedside lamps, a dresser and mirrored closet, a flatscreen TV mounted on the wall, and a chair in the corner. And with 2 bathrooms in the cabin, guests will have their own spaces for getting ready to go into town or for getting ready for bed.
Outdoor Spaces What’s a stay in the Great Smoky Mountains without some quality time spent in the great outdoors? You’ll have some lovely places to enjoy nature when you stay at Bare Necessities in Gatlinburg. Spend nice mountain evenings relaxing in the cushioned chairs on the brick patio as the chef of the group tosses burgers, kabobs, and steaks on the charcoal grill – all with a nice view of the trees and the mountains rolling in the distance. Tables between the chairs provide a spot for your coffee, hot cocoa, or favorite drink on a hot day.
On the deck, chat about the day’s adventures in the deck chairs or enjoy a romantic dinner as a couple at the table here overlooking the trees. Before you call it a night, climb into the soothing waters of the bubbling hot tub to ease those muscle aches and soak away stresses. It’s a wonderful way to say goodnight when you’re away in the Smokies.
Other Amenities The Bare Necessities has much more than that – it’s equipped with a long list of amenities to make your stay a memorable one. If you’re staying a bit longer or taking advantage of the community pools, use the washer and dryer in the cabin to wash pool towels or keep clothes clean throughout your stay. You can relax in the jetted tub inside, and you can use the CD player to set a romantic atmosphere or to have a fun dance party with the kids. Just bring your favorite CDs!
The cabin also has Wi-Fi throughout, allowing you to catch up on emails, get some work done away from home, relax and surf the web, or keep up with what’s happening in town during your stay by checking out our blog. You can find events, restaurants and attractions, travel tips, cabin recipes, and so much more!
