What a gorgeous view and overall wonderful stay. The kitchen is well equipped and we loved the sitting room and wall of windows that allowed us to enjoy the magnificent view.
The only thing that might prohibit my return is the worn out mattress in the downstairs bedroom. A backache hindered our stay.
Love the place other than that!
It was a wonderful trip to The Smokies thanks to the great chale

Loved staying at this chalet. It was very comfortable except the living room chairs needed footstools and different shower heads would be great, it had a to die for view, parking was a bit tricky but we managed. The layout of the house is great for two couples. I would definitely recommend this rental. We have stayed in Mtn. Laurel Chalet rentals for years and always have great rentals. Nothing like drinking a cup of coffee while watching the sun rise over Mt. LeConte.
View is spectacular - Chalet can use some updating.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Poppes Skyline. The view off the double-decker decks is just spectacular. It looks like you can just reach out and touch the Smokies. The Jacuzzi tubs in the bathrooms are huge. You can easily fit 2 people(3 if they are small). The location of the Chalet is great if you go to Pigeon Forge because it is at that end of the Gatlinburg. However, there are some issues with the chalet that the owners need to address. The biggest is that the bathrooms in both bedrooms are open to the bedroom - no doors. Because of that, there is no privacy if you use the toilet. Your only choice is to use the small half-bath off the kitchen, which is nice, but it requires you to go out of the bedroom, which has a squeaky door when you open it. The second issue is that the showers in the bathrooms are very small. If you are a big person (luckily I am not) you are going to have trouble getting into and out of the shower. Finally, the furniture in the chalet is . . . some people would say homey, I would say out-of-date. The furniture has a seventies or eighties look.

Absolutely love this rental and so did the kids !! The view was spectacular !! The chalet was clean an tidy an well stocked. It had everything we needed. We cannot wait till our next trip we are definitely booking this rental! The staff was very professional and pleasant to deal with. They provided us with excellent service. We have nothing bad to report. The driveway was a challenge the first time we pulled in but after that not a problem at all. I would recommend this rental to all my freinds with an a rating!!

We spent a week in this chalet in March and loved it! The cabin was very clean and was exactly like the pictures on-line. The view is fabulous. The staff was great. We saw bears in the neighbors yard right off our deck! Only one criticism...a hot tub should actually be hot. The temperature would not increase no matter how high it was set. Read more
Response from Mountain Laurel Chalets - 06/20/2012
Thanks for the nice review. We are sorry you had trouble with the hot tub and have addressed the issue. The hot tub now has a brand new control pack and is working perfectly. Please let us know if you have any maintenance issues the next time you are here as we appreciate the opportunity to make things perfect for you. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon.
Poppes Skyline was an awesome chalet with a spectacular view.

Poppes skyline was a very nice chalet. We received great service from the office. The chalet was very comfortable for ourselves and the other couple who came with us. Having the exact same layout for the bathrooms both up and down made for adequate privacy. The view was awesome. The kitchen was very well equipped with dishes, utensils, small appliances and pots and pans. Everything was very convenient. Probably getting in and out of the driveway was the worst part but that would not keep us from coming back. The kitchen was a little dark over the sink and stove on cloudy days and at nighttime. Other than that it was perfect. Read more

Thank you for your generous review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and found everything in order. The owner of this property will undoubtably see this review and look into the dark areas in the kitchen.....thanks for the suggestion! We hope to see you again soon.

We loved our time at poppes. Great chalet, with a wonderful view. Saw momma and 3 bears right under our deck the 1st nite. That was a thrill. Best view ever, only wish we had been there a few weeks later to see the leaves change, thanks for sharing your wonderful chalet.

This was the best place to stay at. Wonderfully decorated, very clean and a spectacular view. We saw a mama bear and cubs from the deck. When we go back to the mountains we will rent this chalet again. Relaxing and peaceful. We would give this more than 5 stars, its was amazing. You can stand on the deck and see Gods beauty at work.

Second-time renting with Mountain Laurel Chalets (stayed at Lamar's Lair in '09, which was fantastic)! Poppe's Skyline was spectacular! Beautiful chalet was well equipped with all we could ask for. My main personal attraction, of course, was the astonishing mountain-views, which were breath-taking. Entertainment, dining, & shopping is conveniently close-by, but hiking was my greatest joy, followed by the relaxing, peaceful tranquility that this splendid chalet provides. Intentionally stayed just before school summer-break, in order to avoid crowds, & also got a very nice managers special discount (hint-hint, be alert for it). Loved every second, but learned a valuable lesson...2 nights are simply not enough. Next time, will be booking for an entire week.

We've been using Mt Laurel Chalets for 20 years now and we have only had one chalet that we didn't like and we immediately drove to the office and the excellent staff took care of us and found us a chalet that was perfect. I would say that's pretty darn good for 20 years. The chalets are always clean - the office was wonderful - we would never think about using anyone else !!!

This was our second stay at Poppes Skyline and was every bit as awe inspiring as our first stay. Beautiful views and beautiful Chalet. Loved the Bear wandering around below the balcony on Thursday. We have been to Gatlinburg ever other year for the last 15 years and Poppes skyline is handsdown the best spot we have stayed.
Loved Every Minute!!!

Took my 3 teenage kids & wife this year & everyone thoroughly enjoyed Poppe's Skyline! When you pull up to the chalet it looks kind of plain but once you step through the doors you're blown away. The kids pretty much kept to the lower level while my wife & I had the upper so we had our privacy & family time. The king sized beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept in on vacation. This is our 2nd year at Mt. Laurel Chalets & everything they do is perfect. They will be where I stay at everytime I come to Gatlinburg. The highlight of the stay was during a brief rain 4 black bear cubs climbed one of the tall pines in the back of the chalet & stayed there for about 45 minutes. After which mama bear showed up right below the lower deck & checked us out for 15 minutes before she & her cubs took off. Didn't see mama anymore but kept seeing the cubs off & on for the next day. Awesome experience!
Awesome time was had!!!

We had a great time at Poppe's Skyline. Just remember however to come back up the mountain in time before any foggy weather stirs up. We had a nice relaxing get-a-way. Great accommodations. Great color scheme.

I came here with my significant other and my brother and his significant other. Everything here at Poppes Skyline was absolutely wonderful. The view was awesome. I took sooo many pics. The whole chalet was great, especially the hot tub outside. It rained so we were kinda rained in but other than that it was great. It was a short distance from the town so that made it even better. We will definitely be returning soon...and it will be Poppes Skyline. the only thing I did want to see, but not up close, was a bear. But everything was wonderful.

Poppe's Skyline is a wonderfully appointed chalet with a view that is nothing less than spectacular. We are frequent visitors to the area and have stayed in several of the Mountain Laurel chalets. We have now found another favorite in Poppe's Skyline! The online special discount rate offered by the owner truly makes this chalet an exceptional value. We enjoyed all of the amenities found in chalets priced considerably higher and had a delightful stay in the mountains. We highly recommend Poppe's Skyline to anyone...you won't want to leave!!

We rented the Poppes skyline chalet from June 30th - July 4th to spend our anniversary and we were really pleased. The chalet was very clean and had a beautiful decor. The kitchen is very well equipped and the rooms are spacious. This chalet is perfect for a family of 2-4 people. And above all we simply loved the beautiful view of Mt. Leconte from the chalet deck.

Poppe's Skyline is the best of the best! The view is out-of-this-world awesome from the hottub, the kitchen/living room, pool room and both bedrooms. Cannot recommend this chalet highly enough!
Left on 04/24/2010 for a stay in March 2010 | Jessica
The staff at Mountain Laurel was kind and courteous as always. No fees for reservations, cleaning, etc. Trading in linens is a cinch, unlike other companies we have stayed with.
The home is very modern, decorated in purple, green, and yellow. There is a lack of privacy in the bathrooms due to the bedroom and bath being one big room. Just close the door to keep others out.
The best part of this house is the view. It is definitely one of the best views I have seen from a Gatlinburg chalet. There is a full view of Mt. LeConte, Clingman's Dome is visible, and the ski slopes can be seen.
I would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting Gatlinburg.

This is a wonderful house! We loved it! The view is fantastic! In the morning you will awake to a great view of Mt. Leconte. It is a very peaceful and relaxing place. We did not find anything at Poppes Skyline that we did not like. We highly recommend it!!! Also everyone at Mt. Laurel is very helpful, and if you need anything they will be at you service. We will be back!!:)
The view was amazing.

accomodate the 2 very large jacuzzi tubs. The view was amazing.
What a view!

The view was so wonderful in this chalet! We spent hours out on the deck just watching the sunrise and sunset. The living spaces were extremely comfortable. The only problems we had were that the hot tub would not heat enough to be safe to use and the bedroom toilets were actually in the bedroom with nothing - no door or partition to make them private from the bed, etc. Even being around a corner, mirrors had been placed so that you could see the toilet and the person using them from the bed or anywhere else in the room, for that matter.
The service was, as always, exempliary and the most friendly in Gatlinburg. We will continue to stay with Mountain Laurel, and we enjoy getting to see a different cabin each time! Read more
Response from Mountain Laurel Chalets - 06/14/2010
Thank you for the comments...we have maintenance people on staff to check out any problems you have with the chalet. We would have been happy to check the hot tub for you to make sure it was heating properly. Please do not hesitate to call us if you every experience any difficulty like this again.
Another Incredible Experience at Another Incredible Chalet
Left on 11/01/2009 for a stay in October 2009 | parfam
We've stayed with Mountain Laurel Chalets every October for many years now and this year has to be one of the tops we've experienced. The chalet was pristine and spacious with a delightfully different decor. We really got a kick out of it. (We'd love to have a drink with the owners one day. They've got to be fun people!) The view from inside or out is nothing less than incredible. If it doesn't take your breath away you've got to be pretty much dead. Poppes Skyline is top shelf in all aspects and we recommend it for a couple of days or a couple of weeks.
As always the folks at Mountain Laurel treated us like royalty. We highly recommend them and the properties they manage. One thing I emphasize to my friends when telling them about renting a chalet in Gatlinburg is that when booking with Mountain Laurel the price you see is what you get (plus Uncle Sam's tax of course). Other rental agencies in Gatlinburg have a bad practice of advertising a low rental rate and then tacking on unnamed "booking" and "cleaning" fees along with other services charges when you check in. That cheap cabin turns out to cost much more when all is said and done. Mountain Laurel Chalets is straight from the get-go on their rates, hiding nothing.
As noted above we've stayed with them for many years and have yet to have a bad, or even marginal, experience. They are good folks. Give them a call and you won't go wrong.

Two thumbs up!!!! P.S. Don't forget to pack sunglasses and flipflops. (HaHa... just a little inside joke.)

This was a very cozy cottage with a different twist on the decor. Nicely decorated with a modern motif. Quite a change from the other cabins we have rented.
The master bedroom was very nice but needs shades on the upper windows to allow for late sleepers.
We have always been pleased with any of the cabins we have rented from Mountain Laurel and will continue to do so in the future.

We stayed at this location the week after Christmas in 2007 and had a wonderful time. The chalet was very comfortable and well kept. The my girlfriend really loved the color scheme (greem/purple) and the Christmas tree made it feel very homey.
We both loved the view from the living room and the entire chalet was very spacious.
We will definately consider staying here again.

The pool table, fireplace, and large tub(s) were nice extras, but sitting in the hot tub on the deck while enjoying the view was the tops!
We would highly recommend it.

Once my wife and I discovered Mountain Laurel Chalets in Gatlinburg we have been using them for every trip to the mountains. Poppes Skyline is one of our favorites and is a perfect chalet for a couple or two couples - each bedroom has its own whirlpool bath. The color scheme and decorating are a little too modern for our tastes, but that does not get in the way of a nice chalet.
