“A wonderful chalet with gorgeous views!”
Thank you Cindy and LD for allowing us to stay in your beautiful chalet. Our stay could not have been better! The chalet is equipped with all the amenities that we look for in a mountain vacation rental...comfortable king beds, clean hot tub on deck with gorgeous mountain views, and a full size pool table! To our surprise, it also has extras that most rentals don't have like nice, big and comfortable deck furniture (like you would have at home), a wonderful gas grill (our steaks turned out perfectly), and tons of DVD movies to watch! I was so impressed to see your notebook of area restaurants and things to do...you are very organized! :-) The chalet is very convenient to downtown Gatlinburg (just a couple of miles down the mountain). We were able to see a show at the Smokey Mountain Opry, which was nice and we enjoyed our dinner, a yearly tradition, at the Greenbrier! Thanks again for having us! We are looking forward to staying with you again!
Response from the owner We rented cabins in Gatlinburg for several years prior to buying Cloudy Dreams. When we bought I decided that I wanted to provide everything that we looked for in a rental and amenities that we didn't find in other rentals but thought would be nice to have. I'm glad that you found all of the amenities to your liking! I've heard good things about the Smoky Mountain Opry show and have been meaning to check it out. We'll have to get there during one of our upcoming trips to Gatlinburg. And you've reminded me of the Greenbrier! We haven't been there in years...another great place! Hope to have you stay again soon! Cindy
“Great Chalet - Cloudy Dreams”
Cloudy Dreams Chalet may be the best we have ever had. It was clean, well stocked, very quiet and great views. Cindy was easy to work with and very honest. Everything she said was true.
Response from the owner I'm so happy that you both enjoyed staying at Cloudy Dreams. We love our Florida guests! Thanks for the great review. Hope you're able to get back to the Smokies sometime soon. We'd love to have you stay with us again. Cindy Wheeler
“Great views! lots of room and private!”
The chalet was just what we expected, large and lots of room to move around, 2 large bedrooms with private baths was perfect, the notebook with chalet information and tourist information was very helpful. The location was great away from the crowds of Gatlinburg. We played pool and games in the evening as well as relaxed in the hot tub after a busy day. If we come back we will definitely stay at Cloudy Dreams again!
Response from the owner Like you mention one of the best features of the chalet is that it's pretty roomy. Both bedrooms are large as is the great room. The upstairs deck is also a good size. I'm glad you had a good time at the chalet and found it a relaxing place to return to after a day out and about. We hope to have you visit again! Cindy Wheeler
“Drive to property not for the weak-hearted”
Ok.i want to be clear that the property itself, view, communication with the owners, rental contract, etc all deserve 5 stars. The trouble is with the drive up and down the mountain to get to and from the property. The private roads for about 10 minutes of driving to the property were not two full lanes wide (not one lane in each direction) at all points; this is a serious problem because they are literally at 30-40 degrees incline or decline with blind switch-backs and no guard rails. In our regular sized Toyota minivan, we held our breath each time we drove this, therefore we limited our excursions to once down the mountain and once up the mountain per day. On a map, the middle of one of the park trails may be accessible from somewhere near the home, but we could not find it. So to hike, we needed to drive first. To us, this meant that this vacation rental would be best suited for a group or family that wanted to arrive with all necessary provisions and just relax and enjoy the view and the many house amenities. For us, who wanted to eat out occasionally and hike a lot in the park, this did not meet our needs. It rained each evening, and there is no way I would have wanted to negotiate those roads in the fog and dark. It's a shame, because we really enjoyed the house, once we were there.
Response from the owner I am terribly upset to be reading this and learning of your disappointment with your stay. I wish that you had phoned me to let me know about your difficulties both with the roads and with your inability to find the trailhead located in the neighborhood. Our goal as vacation rental owners is to provide you with the best possible vacation. Had I known of your troubles, I definitely would have remedied the situation. I feel I need to clear up a few things. One of the charms of our chalet is that it has a spectacular view of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The chalet is located at 2400 feet (along with many other cabins and chalets) and therefore mountain roads are required to get to the house. The roads up to the chalet are not private. They are public roads that are fully paved and maintained by the city of Gatlinburg. Cars and school buses travel these roads as does the trash truck three times a week. While there are sections of the road that are narrow, it is not one lane the entire way up to the chalet. That would make it impossible for the many cars that travel these roads every day. That being said, the roads are mountain roads and are steep and narrow in places and are winding in others. I apologize for your disappointment and wish that you'd informed me of your difficulties while you were at the chalet. Our sole desire is to make you happy with your vacation. Cindy Wheeler
“A wonderful chalet with a beautiful view.”
For the last two years, we have stayed four days at the Cloudy Dreams chalet after the Christmas and New Year's holidays. We stay at about three different vacation condos or houses each year and without a doubt, this chalet is the nicest. It is beautifully furnished and had the small touches that other places do not have. It has a beautiful view of the mountains and is close to some great natural and man-made attractions. If you want to get away and relax or have a wonderful place to stay while seeing Gatlinburg and the Smokies, you will not find a nicer place to stay.
Response from the owner Thanks so much for the wonderful review! We're so happy to have had the two of you (plus pup) stay at Cloudy Dreams for the last couple of years. Your kind words about our place mean a lot to us coming from people who have so much experience staying in vacation rentals. Hope to have you stay again next January! Cindy and LD Wheeler
“Great Vacation at a great location”
This was a great cabin that far exceeded my expectations. Mrs. Wheeler was extremely helpful and friendly. I emailed her with lots of questions before I even reserved the cabin and she always emailed me with answers to my questions in a timely manner and was willing to provide me all the information I requested. The cabin was beautiful and it was decorated extremely nicely. The view from the balcony was breath-taking. The cabin was stalked with lots of books, movies and board games. My family and I will definately be staying at this cabin again and I would recommend it to all my friends and family.
Response from the owner I'm glad to hear your family enjoyed your stay at Cloudy Dreams. I hope you were able to get up to Ober Gatlinburg for snowboarding or skiing during your trip as I know that was the main reason for your visit. Thanks for the great review. We look forward to having you stay at Cloudy Dreams in the future! Cindy and LD
We stayed at Cloudy Dreams for a week around the 4th of July. The home was clean and the amenities were wonderful. From the moment you enter the house, you feel at home and relaxed. The view from the porch is breath taking. Our 11 and 12 year old daughters had a fantastic time in the game room and on the porch watching the clouds and the mountains. Although we did go into town twice, the highlights of the trip were in the Smoky Mountains. We especially enjoyed the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. The views in the woods were amazing. Our girls also had lots of fun at the climb Works Canopy zip-line and Dollywood amusement park. Our family of 4 kept busy each day with the many outdoor activities the area has to offer. We loved coming home each afternoon to our chocolate lab, Godiva, and the stunning mountain view. We even saw baby turkeys, bunnies, and a mother bear with 3 cubs!
Response from the owner It sounds like your family really took advantage of all that the area offers. Like you said, Gatlinburg is wonderful, but the real beauty of the area is found in the park. I'm so happy you enjoyed Roaring Fork. It's our family's favorite thing to do in the area. It's so beautiful there! I'm happy you were able to see some wildlife around the chalet. That's always a plus! Thanks for the review and for the lovely pictures that you mailed to me of your family on vacation. We'll add them to the guest photo album. Hope to have you stay with us again soon! Cindy and LD
What a wonderful chalet. It felt like we were room rather than in a rental. It was very clean, well supplied and pet friendly. The view and sunrises were amazing. We even seen lots of wildlife around the chalet. There was a little bear off the deck one morning, a deer in the neighborhood around chalet and a turtle as well. The gas grill was very nice as well, we used it a couple of times. Very easy to deal with Cindy as well. Hope to be back again.
Response from the owner It was nice to have you, your Mom, and sister back to the cabin once again. It seems like you always see a ton of wildlife! You're lucky that way. It's funny, but we have never seen deer in the neighborhood - bears, turkey, and plenty of birds, chipmunks, and squirrels, but never any deer. Several guests have reported them. Hope to see a few some day soon! I'm happy you had a good trip. Until next time...Cindy
“Very Relaxing with Amazing Views”
We enjoyed a wonderful relaxing week at Cloudy Dreams to celebrate my husband's upcoming retirement. It was just the two of us and our faithful dog Miles. After months of anticipation we finally made it here. Cloudy Dreams was everything we expected and more! The chalet is so clean and the kitchen was well stocked with plenty of small appliances and cookware. We only got out twice the whole week--one day to Gatlinburg and one day to Pigeon Forge. We just enjoyed sitting on the deck enjoying the great views, relaxing in the hot tub, or taking long walks with our dog. We also were lucky enough to view the fireflies that were out in abundance at night. There were a zillion of them and they put on an incredible show! Everything about the chalet felt like home. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were impeccably clean. We are not typically early risers but we got up early every morning to catch the incredible sunrise from the deck. A cup of coffee and that incredible view was just what we needed to unwind. The view from the hot tub in the evenings was just as amazing. Especially when the stars were out. We highly recommend Cloudy Dreams and will definitely stay there the next time we go to Gatlinburg.
Response from the owner I didn't realize you were celebrating your husband's retirement. How exciting! I know you both must have really enjoyed relaxing around the chalet. And how lucky you were to have seen the synchronized fireflies! I've never seen tons at the chalet, but have seen them over in Elkmont. People travel from all over the country just to see them. I'm glad you got to enjoy the show right from the deck! Thanks for the great review. We hope to have you back again soon! Cindy and LD
“"Wanted To Stay Forever"”
Cloudy Dreams... "what you see is what you get" & More. From the moment we walked in, we knew we had made the right choice. Renting the chalet was as easy as a couple of emails. Cloudy Dreams is spacious and comfortable and a lot of thought has been put into details which make every room unique.. The kitchen is completely stocked.. and we enjoyed several relaxing dinners using the grill on the deck.. then sitting at the comfortable table and enjoying the sights and sounds outdoors while we ate. Enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub.. just closing our eyes and listening to the sounds of nature. The beautiful winding roads leading to the chalet offer gorgeous views and it's only 10-15 mins to downtown Gatlinburg. Cades Cove ( our favorite spot) is only about 30 mins away. Between 2 visits, we spotted over a 100 deer, lots of huge wild turkey, and even saw a Mama bear w/2 cubs up in the woods... And speaking of bears, when we arrived and went out on the deck, we spotted a black bear sitting in the yard below the decks. What a treat that was. We never expected to see one that close !! Choosing Cloudy Dreams for our vacation was the perfect choice and we highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, relaxing place to spend your vacation. Many thanks to Cindy and LD for allowing us to share this wonderful place - and we will be back.
Response from the owner It sounds like you had a relaxing vacation! One of the best things about the chalet is that is just a great place to "be". I've had many guests stay with plans to run, run, run every day, but then choose to spend a day or two just relaxing at the chalet. Somehow the chalet just draws you in. LD and I find it to be that way as well. I'm so happy you enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to having you stay again in October. You're going to LOVE those Fall leaves! Cindy and LD
