Our Misty Wood is located on Ski Mountain, which is the large mountain on the south side of the City of Gatlinburg. The cabin is in the city limits on a paved road maintained by the city, about 1000 feet above the Gatlinburg downtown area. A large part of Ski Mountain is actually within the boundaries of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Misty Wood is actually a "chalet" style vacation home, built as a "roundette", or 12-sided structure. It is not connected to any other structures and is definitely not a "condo". Misty Wood is located on it's own lot, tucked into the woods with no homes or cabins on either side. From our large deck only the roof of one home below us is visible, so we have quite a sense of privacy.
Our chalet has 2 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, and 2 full bathrooms. There is another small TV room with a full size futon sleeper perfect for the kids. We supply all linens and the kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and service for 6, including stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishwasher and refrigerator.
When staying with us you will be close to everything. Both the main tourist area in Gatlinburg and the entrance to the Park are only 4 or 5 minutes by car. The park is a wonderland of nature walks, hiking trails and fishing streams. The outlet malls in Pigeon Forge are only 15 minutes away as is Dollywood and Splash Country. If you want to take a break from cooking there are a large variety of restaurants beginning right at the bottom of Ski Mountain Road.
We are members of the Chalet Village Owners Club, which operates 3 facilities on Ski Mountain each with a swimming pool and 2 have tennis courts. Our guests have full access priveledges to all 3 facilities during the season which generally runs from Memorial Day to mid-October. The nearest facility is less than 3/4 mile from Misty Wood.
Also within 3/4 mile is the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort and Amusement Park. The ski slopes are generally open from mid-December to early March. Ober Gatlinburg also has a large recreation area that is open all year with a full size indoor ice skating rink, game arcade, restaurants, kiddie rides and a water park.
Other features at Misty Wood are the outside Hot Tub on the lower deck, Gas Log fireplace, free wireless internet service, a guest computer and 4 cable televisions - one in each room.
We are not a Real Estate office or Cabin Rental company. Misty Wood is our personal vacation home in the Smoky Mountains and we are pleased to rent it to our guests whenever our familly is not using it.
Since we are not a Rental Company, we can offer rates that are quite competitive, as our primary goal is to offset some of the expenses associated with owning a vacation home so far away from our residence in Florida....Read more

I just wanted to thank you for allowing us to rent your vacation home. The location was great; it was just like a tree house. There was a stand of flowers nearby full of hummingbirds and we also saw a woodchuck in the neighbor's yard.
Some mornings, we were in the mist that gives the mountains their name. The weather was perfect.
We also saw 13 bears (which were all, thankfully, in the national park).
The cabin was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay.
