The Smoky Mountains are where natural beauty meets a tourist's dreamland, and Squirrel's Nest offers the best of both worlds. For your next family getaway or retreat with friends in the mountains, head to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, for a fun and relaxing escape at this 3-bedroom, 3½-bathroom cabin rental for up to 6 guests. 

Enjoy peaceful wooded and partial mountain views plus a quick drive to the ski slopes at Ober, downtown restaurants, attractions, and shops when you stay in this cozy cabin in Gatlinburg. Located in Chalet Village Resort, you’ll have access to a variety of on-site amenities — including 3 clubhouses with game tables and fitness equipment, swimming pools with cool water features, lit tennis courts, a paved walking trail, and play areas for the kids!

At your Gatlinburg cabin rental, get cozy with a mug of cocoa by the crackling fireplace, gaze at tranquil views through the floor-to-ceiling windows, and shoot pool anytime. You can cook in the fully equipped kitchen and dine at the table or toss steaks on the gas grill for a picnic on the deck. Sip morning coffee in the fresh mountain air or slip into the hot tub for a steamy soak. At night, rest and relax in your private suite with a bathroom, a TV, and a king or queen bed. 

Additional amenities at this cabin rental in Gatlinburg include free Wi-Fi to stay connected with the online community, a washer and dryer to reuse provided towels if you like, a big screen TV with a DVD player for movie nights together, and keyless entry for your convenience. Some of the bedrooms have their own fireplaces, and the driveway is paved, curvy, and steep with parking for 2 vehicles. Squirrel’s Nest is an ideal place to stay with great views, nice amenities, and fun extras in the Smokies!

Living Room
Floor-to-ceiling windows and wood walls create the classic Smoky Mountain experience at your Gatlinburg cabin. On cool nights after exploring Anakeesta, hiking miles of trails, or shopping at The Village, curl up on the plush sofas around the stone (gas) fireplace and unwind. Read a good book by the light of the lamps on the side tables, watch DVDs on the big screen TV, or play board games and card games on the coffee table. This cozy space will be the perfect place to catch up with family and friends. 

For more fun, head to the game area behind the sofas to play a few rounds on the pool table. Windows surrounding the room let in lots of natural light and allow you to enjoy wooded views as you play. It's an inviting space that both kids and adults love! You'll feel away from it all as you read, watch TV, and play here.

Just steps from the living area, the fully equipped kitchen offers guests an easy way to make delicious meals at this Smoky Mountain cabin. It features beautiful wood cabinets, ample counter space, and all the essentials. A full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, microwave, Keurig coffeemaker, blender, toaster, and plenty of dishes and utensils make eating in the cabin pleasant and fun. Conveniently store bottles of vino from the Gatlinburg Wine Trail, cook hearty dishes, grab quick snacks, and pour drinks throughout your stay!

Dining Area
Next to the kitchen is a dining table for 6 — perfect for meals together. With an open plan in the living, dining, and kitchen areas, guests can enjoy each other's company as they cook, eat, and relax. You can also use the table to play board games, deal cards, paint a picture, craft with the kids, teach homeschool, or get a little work done.

Between dining at The Park Grill, visiting Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, and checking out local museums, you'll find peace and rest in the 3 comfortable bedrooms at your Gatlinburg cabin in the Smokies. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, TV, and a comfortable bed — a mix of 1 king-size bed and 2 queen-size beds. 

With a bathroom for each bedroom, there will be no fighting over the mirror! Two of the bedrooms even have a little fireplace plus access to the lower-level deck, where you can reconnect with nature whenever you please. There’s an additional half bath conveniently located on the main level as well. 

Outdoor Spaces
Outside at your Gatlinburg vacation rental, 2 decks provide great spaces to enjoy the serene natural setting. Sit around the picnic table with a cup of coffee or enjoy meals on nice days. You can fire up the gas grill for cookouts and take in the seasonal mountain views as you dine and relax together. At the end of the day, soothe your muscles in the hot tub as you take in the wooded views and fresh air. Do note the driveway is paved, curvy, and steep with parking for 2 vehicles at the top.

Other Amenities
Along with fun things to do at your vacation home, you’ll have more homey conveniences during your stay. Toss loads of towels, linens, or clothes into the washer and dryer as needed and tap into the free Wi-Fi to post trip pics and videos with ease. You’ll also have keyless entry so you don’t have to stop by an office anytime. Please note this Smoky Mountain cabin rental is not pet friendly.

Community Amenities
Within Chalet Village Resort, you’ll have community amenities to enjoy while staying at your Gatlinburg cabin. Play ping pong or foosball at the clubhouses and take the kiddos to the play areas. Hit the lit tennis courts whenever you want a little exercise or simply work out with the fitness equipment. You can shoot basketball, take a stroll along the paved walking trail, or splash at 3 outdoor pools in summer — each with fun water features!

Local Fun
Less than 5 miles from downtown Gatlinburg, Squirrel's Nest is a short drive to the heart of the city. Head into town for a romantic dinner or a hearty Southern meal with the family. Find something for every craving, including sweets, seafood, steak, burgers, wings, Chinese, Italian, breakfast, and more. Nearby dinner shows offer delicious food and tons of laughs, and area attractions provide days of fun! 

Pigeon Forge and Sevierville are also nearby and offer more options for your memorable mountain vacation. And don’t forget to enjoy a great outdoor adventure — riding horses, fly fishing for rainbow trout, picnicking beside a sparkling river, or hiking to scenic overlooks — in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park!

The Island
Enjoy delicious meals or savory snacks at the variety of eateries, ride the Ferris wheel overlooking the city, or enjoy a unique light show by the fountain at the center of the park. The kids will love the ropes course, train, and live music that brings The Island alive!

Clingmans Dome
Be sure to visit this observation tower that sits 6,643 feet tall, making it the highest point of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You don’t have to be an expert hiker or mountain climber; the short ½-mile trek along a paved path makes getting to the peak a feat the whole family can conquer.

Roller coasters, carnival games and prizes, a choo-choo train, Southern restaurants, cookies the size of your face, kids’ rides, live shows…Dollywood has something for all ages!
