Gatlinburg Condo and Chalet Vacation Testimonials
Every condo renters dream loved it!!! Loved it! Very relaxing, and it was very very clean with an at home feel, close to everything, nice pool and clean hottub.
Diane, Bessemer City
Very nice! We really enjoyed our stay here. We had a 2 bedroom condo with 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. It felt "just like home." It was really clean and we had plenty of towels, etc. The kitchen was very well equipped! Lovely set of dishes and really nice cookware. (These were real sets! Not just yard sale bits and pieces.) Gas fire place was a treat. Downtown Gatlinburg was just down the road a little ways. We were only about a mile away from a nice grocery store. We really enjoyed it and the price was so reasonable!!! We will definitely be back...many times I hope!
Nice place to stay. Oak Leaf at Gatlinburg Chateau is always a pleasure to rent from. Their rentals are always super clean! This rental is close to town and we very much enjoyed it!
Diane, Watertown TN
Excellent This place is the best. We normally stay in a cabin. We decided last year to stay closer in town to watch the firework show in downtown Gatlinburg that was our first time to stay. When we decided to come back in October we wanted to stay at the same place. This unit is very clean and you feel like you are at home. The bed was very comfortable. It is not so far out that you can walk to Gatlinburg or ride the trolley. It is not a very busy area it gives you the feel of still being away from the busy area of downtown. We are bringing the family back in Decemeber for the parade and have booked 2 units. The price is great. I am sure this will not be our last stay at Gatlinburg Chateau!
Susan Bouchillon, Clemson, SC
Home away from Home The condo is lovely, nice furniture and mattresses, great TVs with cable, well equipped kitchen, convenient to downtown, adequate parking, and wonderful conference room for our group meetings. We love the condo and realize the owners and management have worked hard to make it a place we would stay again. Thanks, Esther and Glenn, and Warren and Maryann.

Every aspect exceeded my expectations! I stayed here on recommendation from a friend as we were passing through the area. I didn't know anything about Gatlinburg or the area in general and was more than pleasantly surprised upon my arrival. We arrived very late and our paperwork and key was immediately ready for us. The area is beautiful and the condo overlooked the mountains. It was very clean and comfortable - just like being at home (maybe even better!). We hiked in the Smoky Mountains and they couldn't have been closer. My only regret is that our stay was so short. We will absolutely be back soon and will definitely stay with you again. Thank you!
Lucian and Elise, Raton, Florida
A perfect retreat We had a really pleasurable experience at the Gatlinburg Chateau.The rooms were decorated in a Smoky Mountain Theme.Large bedrooms and beds,fully functional kitchen and living room with a view overlooking Gatlinburg.The hosts really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable,providing discount coupons,directions and suggestions for good food and recreation.It was really nice to be within walking distance of most of the attractions in town.Downhill to town and uphill back but the trolley saved the uphill hike for 50 cents.We're certainly going back to this place again.
Dan Fornero, Los Angeles, California
Warm, clean & friendly "family" service -with great location! I just have to write to say how much I enjoyed my stay at the Oak Leaf at Gatlinburg Chateau. I really enjoyed my stay! The staff at the Chateau were very courteous, attentive and warm. They really made me feel like family! The condo I stayed in was charming and very clean, and the views were just breathtaking. Additionally, the city has such a nice "down home" feel to it. It was great being so close to all the fun things to do in Gatlinburg, although I'm sure I'll need a dentist after sampling all the great homemade candies in town! Thank you Oak Leaf, I'll be back!
Michelle, Westmont, IL
A wonderful family experience We loved our stay. Room 104 was great for our 4 person family. Our two girls, 3 and 7, loved their own room. We simply slid the dress over a bit to fit the mini inflatable mattress for the 3-year old. Check in was easy as someone was working late, greeting us as we arrived after 10 pm. The tv was great, once we figured out that the dvd player is hidden on the unit behind the screen. This made the perfect home base for our family. It was walking distance from lots of places, though we drove almost everywhere. The grocery store is just down the street, along with lots of breakfast places that aren't nearly as croweded as those on the main strip. The pool and hot tub were nice too-what a wonderful view! Again, perfect for our family. Didn't get to see any bears, but no complaints about that! I even used the laundry once which was very convenient because we went through lots of clothes with the rain and then with muddy hikes through the national park. Just remember to bring soap and quarters! I would definitely stay here again. The price was right, the room was great, and a first floor condo turned about to be something we appreciated more than we thought we would (lots of trips to and from the car with two little kids). We ended up staying an extra night because we liked it so much. We just couldn't get all the hiking, exploring, and visiting in that we wanted to.
Mike & Maggie Kerrigan, West Palm Beach, FL
Relaxing vacation in a nice surrounding close to everything You can't beat the location on the ground floor close to the pool. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. Even on the weekend at full capacity the management was right there with a cutting board or anything we needed. We were so happy that we took them out for a night on the town.
Ray Von Rotz, Nashville
It was like owning our own home in the Smokies! When we pulled up to the Chateau, my wife was ready to be disappointed. She was sure it was going to be a glorified hotel room. I took great delight in her surprise at what we found! The condo was very comfortable and very tastefully furnished. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were very nice. The location was perfect being so close to the main drag in Gatlinburg with all the shops. We were a 5 min. walk from the aquarium. We later took the elevator up to the top floor and the view from the top is wonderful. All in all, I can highly recommend the Gatlinburg Chateau and Warren Hanrahan and his wife Maryann of Oak Leaf. They were very attentive to our needs and were very helpful. They have other properties as well and are the best.
Best in Gatlinburg Very clean and cozy. Warren and his wife were so helpful and went out of their way to provide me with anything I needed.
Perfect for Shopping Trip A friend and I went shopping and on a Wine Tour in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. It was Much Better than getting a Hotel room. We both had our own bedroom and bathroom. My friend ended up being sick all night... it was good to have our own rooms. It was Short notice and the Manager was great to help accommodate us. Easy to find and Great location..Store, Gas Station, etc. right down the road!! I would recommend Oak Leaf Chateau Gatlinburg to all my friends and family.
Shannon, Charleston, SC
Great view of the mountains, very comfortable accommodations! We lived here for 7 weeks & loved it. This unit has a large balcony with a table outside. We spent many a morning enjoying the mountains there. Inside is very comfortable & homey. Management is wonderful & took care of our requests/needs promptly. Loved the proximity to "the strip" (5 minute walk) & thoroughly enjoyed the pool & hot tub!
Doris Freeman, Matthews, NC
Fair The Condo was suppose to be Non-Smoke, but the people before us smoke. We had a hard time, because we do not smoke. The manager offer the money back, but we knew we would have a hard time finding something so late. We spray and use candles to get the smell out some. Toaster was broke, and the sink in the bathroom was small. It was clean and the Bedroom had a nice King size bed. Over all I would not stay in this one. The Manager was nice about the problem.
Super Cute and Cozy Condo! This condo was very cute and homey with everything needed for a weekend getaway. It was very clean and well worth the money spent! We felt very safe, and welcome at this particular place. It is within walking distance of anything place in Gatlinburg and even some of the trails in the park as well! Check in was a breeze, and Mr. Hanrahan was very helpful with booking Dixie Stampede tickets for me! I felt very welcome. We will be staying with them again soon! Book this condo for affordable cozy lodging!
Michelle, Fishers, IN
Good Location This condo is in a good location for walking in downtown Gatlinburg. Very close to all of the restaurants and shops, great for walking. Very cozy and clean. Very quiet even though it's downtown.
Magster, Whitwell, Tennessee
Good value for the price. The condo was good value for the price, especially with the Dixie Stampede tickets at a discounted rate.
Ginger M, Panama City, Florida
Really clean, well furnished condo. Conveniently located off the parkway and close to trolley route. Room was very clean and nicely furnished with balcony. View from balcony was okay for mountains and town but below was concrete slab from a previous building and parking lot. Had a few maintenance issues upon arrival but they were addressed by the following afternoon. Wi-fi connection worked great.
Location, Location, Location and Great Discounts We have just stayed at the fabulous Chateau Condo rental in Gatlinburg, TN. The owners and hosts, Warren and Mary ann Hanrahan, really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable,providing fantastic family and military discount coupons,directions and suggestions for good food and recreation. Shopping and restaurants were walking distance away and plenty to do with Dollywood 15 minutes away, Aquariums and so much more. This was so relaxing for our family especially for a family that had two sons back from deployment from afghanistan. The Support of our Troops and the Tennesee hospitality was just awesome!
Giggy, East Coast
Management could not be better Clean and nicely decorated. Great stay at a more reasonably priced accommodation in Gatlinburg. This condo unit is in a great location right off the main drag. Set back from the hustle and bustle, so it is nice and quiet. Would prefer king beds, but the queens were suitable. Not the most roomy condo I've ever stayed in but certainly did well for 4 adults. Fireplace added a nice touch as did the balcony. Think I would request a corner balcony next time - more spacious. Cannot say enough about the management team, excellent to work with, great customer service. If and when we are ever in the area again the Chateau will be our stop.
Leocraft, Manitoba, Canada
Excellent condo, immaculate grounds, wonderful hospitality My wife and I stayed here while we attended classes at arrowmont School, which is very close by. The condo is a two bedroom, each with its own bathroom, however, we used only one of the bedrooms. It was ideal for us but might have been a bit crowded for two couples. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The hospitality provided by Mary ann and Warren was first class. They provided us with dining recommendations that were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. The location was also within convenient walking distance to all the attractions of the downtown area. If we return to Gatlinburg we will stay here again, however, we would want a condo that has better wireless service.
Oak Leaf at Gatlinburg Chateau Maryann and Warren are always a pleasure to work with! They are always very accomodating. Staying at Oak Square is nice. It is very close to the main strip. We have stayed in several condos offered by Oak Leaf. This particular condo #201 was not the best I have stayed in but still clean and very inexpensive per night. I would reccommened and have reccomended to others to use Oak Leaf.
Betty White, Ohio
Had a Very good time . It was a nice place to stay very good . Very clean .we loved it close to every thing . We have told all of our family and friends. To stay here . And we will be back to stay here from now on .We had a good time on the days we stayed.
Debra, sale creek, tn
wonderful this was our second time staying at oak square-the hanrahans are wonderful to deal with-the unit we had, 309, was adorable, roomy, very nicely decorated and so clean and well stocked-it was quiet and private and we had a wonderful time..renting from the hanrahans will be our first choice every time we come to gatlinburg
lovin it, Zeeland
Great location, great time. The condo has been all redone and is very clean. The location is perfect to walk to town (takes less then 5 min.). Having 2 pools one indoor one outdoor makes it great for all seasons.
Robby & Cindy Baggett, Mobile, AL
Fabulous Place to Stay Wow!!! We have been going to the mountains for the last 15 yrs. The last 2 we have stayed at Oak Square... It is our favorite by far... Very good location. You have easy access to everything.. The condo is super nice & Mrs. Maryann makes booking the reservations sooo easy.. I would highly recommend this place to everyone... Thank you for a wonderful place. I know we will definitely be back : )
Vicki, Holland, Michigan
Great Stay! Love the amenities Oak Square has to offer! Walking distance to shopping, restaurants and trolley pickup. Indoor and outdoor pool are perfect for every season.
Our first stay in a condo, and it won't be our last. Every year we stay in a chalet, but this year we wanted the convenience of being in town. The condo was nice and filled our needs. The finishes were not as we are accustomed to in chalets of previous years, but I had no problem overlooking that for the trade off of location. Its simply a different experience. The service we received from Maryann was what sealed the deal for me. She made me feel confident I was making the right reservations for us. As a group of women traveling Maryann helped me feel secure.
Grace, Franklin, TN
Great Service The apartment is very comfortable and clean. When we had problems with our drain, it was fixed the day we reported the problem! Excellent, personal service. Wonderful location and view!
Taylor Dukehart, westminister, MD
Excellent and friendly service! Excellent and friendly service, comfortable and clean accommodations, convenient location, wonderful staff, great view of Gaitlinburg, and the pool was a nice addition.
Susan, Clemson, SC
So Comfortable and Relaxing! We had a great weekend in condo 506 at Gatlinburg Chateau. The condo was perfect for a relaxing time. We loved being close enough to walk downtown for meals. We also loved the up to date TVs. May sound shallow but we had several football games we really wanted to watch. So we had one going in the bedroom and one in the living room. The condo was clean, the bed was comfy, the view was amazing, the kitchen was well supplied. Yes, we will be back.
crys215, Hartford, KY
Awesome price- what you would expect Very good price and a great location... Outdated decor, pretty clean. Worth the money, especially if you are like us and aren't in the room much
OKINC, North Carolina
We are so going to rent this unit next time we're in Gatlinburg! My family and I just rented this condo September 19-22, 2013. This condo was perfectly situated where we could see the night lights up and down the main drag of Gatlinburg, and beautiful views of the mountains during the day. Maryann was wonderful and made sure we were happy with our accommodations. The landscaping was beautiful! If you want a great location with beautiful scenery and a short walk to downtown, this is it!
Dennis Strow, Ocala, FL
Awesome Awesome view, location and super friendly employees!
James Lambert, Monticello MS
Beautiful Condo with a Spectacular View We rented this condo in May 2013. As stated in my title the Condo was great and the view of downtown Gatlinburg is wonderful. This condo gave us the best of both worlds, the night time lights with great views of the mountains. Mr. Warren and Mrs. Maryann are wonderful people to rent from. They made sure everything was good with in the condo after we checked in and landscaping is beautiful too. If you want a great view of your surroundings this condo is for you!
Maria M., Deerfield Beach, FL
Gatlinburg, TN - God surely shed His grace on thee Neither words nor photos could describe the splendor of the Great Smoky Mountains and Gatlinburg is surrounded by this breathtaking beauty. I felt at peace and in awe while staying at the Oakleaf at Gatlinburg Chateau because of the views that I had from my condo apartment which was clean, luxurious and staffed with very accommodating managers, Maryann & Warren Hanrahan who ensured that all my needs were promptly met. Besides being the perfect setting to kick-back and just relax - I was never bored. There's so much to see and do: shows, fine dining, arts & crafts; hiking, white water rafting, hot air ballooning, visiting Dollywood which is just a stone's throw away and much more! I would recommend and, already have, the Oakleaf at Gatlinburg Chateau to everyone. I had the time of my life there. I hope to return again in the autumn of next year, when the scenery promises to be even more breathtaking!
I would stay here again! What wonderful people the owners are. They were so willing and ready to help me in any way. I had originally booked a one room condo and had to switch at the last moment to a two bedroom one and they were so helpful. The condo (304) had wonderful views was located very close to town (walking distance but up hill on way back) was older but very well kept and clean. It had everything you needed and each bedroom had their own bathroom. Both full-sized bathrooms are located in the bedrooms so keep that in mind if you have 6 adults that someone would have to walk thru a bedroom to access a bathroom. The condo was not large but was sufficient for the week, we had 5 people in it. The living room/dining room was small as was the kitchen. There was really no cupboard space for food so keep in mind your groceries will be in bags on the counter for the week. The balcony off from the living room was nice and added that extra bit of space. The internet did work but slowly and every once in awhile you had to move to the balcony to get connected but that was minor inconvience. None of what I mentioned are negatives just would like others to know what to expect. I would recommend this condo to anyone and would love to come back again!
Barry B, Seneca, SC
Great experience in Gatlinburg Great view and comfortable accomodations. Perfectly met our needs and made us feel at home. Oak Leaf crew are true servants and they would do anything to make our experienc pleasant. We'll do it again!
Arlene, Naples, FL
Simply perfect! When you need to get away, even if for only a night, Gatlinburg is the perfect place. Just a few hours drive to the mountains can invigorate your soul like nothing else. Even more, when you check in with the Hanrahans, you can rest assured you're leaving your troubles behind.
Vicki & Greg Perry, Pickens SC
Great stay without a lot of pay!! I, my husband and my sister stayed here in Novemeber 2012. What a nice little condo! Bedrooms were on opposite ends of the condo and my sister had her own bath in her room which was great for her. Decorated very pretty and had a view of downtown Gatlinburg. No problems whatsoever! The owners were good Christian people which means a lot to us since we ourselves are Christians. They were so extremely nice and helpful!! Will plan another stay as soon as my husband gets back to work! :) Thanks, Hanrahans, for a super vacation that didn't cost and arm and leg!! Vicki & Greg Perry
Great Week We just spent 7 nights and 8 days at the Oak Leaf at Gatlinburg Chateau. It was my husband and I with our 7 year old grandaughter. The condo was wonderful. Pool and hot tub was also very nice. Staff was very accommodating. We go to Gatlinburg at least 1X a year and we will always go back to the Oak Leaf/Gatlinburg Chareau.
1LT Matthew Mayor, Clarksville, TN
Excellent vacation experience at the Gatlinburg Chateau The service was outstanding, prompt, and the condo was very clean. The condo itself was spacious and well kept. It was a real pleasure to spend my vacation time there as the view overlooked Gatlinburg which was absolutely beautiful. The amenities in the condo itself were excellent. The location of the condo was a very short walk to the Gatlinburg downtown attractions and restaurants. The condo is also situated very close to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park which was ideal for hiking and other outdoor activities. I plan on staying at the Gatlinburg Chateau every time I vacation in Gatlinburg!
1LT Matthew Mayor, Kileen, TX
Several days of five star service and adventure at unbeatable prices The room was in excellent condition with a gas fireplace, full kitchen, dining area, two bathrooms with showers, balcony and several TVs with cable and DVD/video capability in three rooms. The Gatlinburg Chateau managers, Warren and Mary ann, were extremely helpful and supportive during my stay. Both managers were very knowledgeable of the area. The view from the balcony was priceless being situated on a historic hill which overlooked Gatlinburg, TN and the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. The beds were extremely comfortable and nights very quiet and peaceful. The Chateau was only a couple minutes away from Gatlinburg's main attractions such as great dining, shopping and other fascinating attractions. Hiking and other adventurous activities in the Great Smokey Mountain National Park were only a short drive from the Chateau as well. The Gatlinburg Chateau also has a outdoor pool and hot tub kept in excellent condition by the managers. The Gatlinburg Chateau offered unbeatable military discounts as I am a U.S. Army veteran and army officer. I will be bringing my family and friends here for years to come. The Gatlinburg Chateau and its current managers are truly diamonds in the rough. I am just excited to have come across a vacation spot with caring staff and five star accommodations.
Gloria, Miami, FL
A perfect setting for a perfect vacation ! The condo was comfortable, very clean and beautifully furnished. The view from the balcony was fabulous. A big surprise is the availability of attraction tickets at a discount.
What a nice surprise! We were looking for somewhere to stay for a couple of nights during the end of our spring break week. We needed accommodations for 6 people. We had looked at several hotels online and had almost settled on getting 2 rooms which was going to be quite expensive. While driving through gatlinburg we happened upon gatlinburg chateau and just decided to stop and see if they may have something available and if it was affordable. We were pleasantly surprised when we met Mary anne and Warren. They let us view an available condo then when they told us the rate for 2 nights we kept waiting for them to say it was the per night price. We ended up staying and extra night and saving about 100 over what we were planning to spend for the few days. They were wonderful hosts and the condo was great! We will definitely stay with them again!
skeeter2013, Macon, Georgia
no fireplace Found out after we checked in that the fireplaces were not turned on till after nov ist so that was a bummer remote for the bedroom had dead batteries no biggie bought batteries still never worked ...also no washer or dryer in condo ...all in all not the worst place i ever stayed comfy beds nice view...
Stacey335, Warrington, United Kingdom
was a pleasure staying here homely, clean and quiet, nice location just far enough away from the hustle of downtown Gatlinberg and close to adjoining roads. Only downside I found was the internet connection wasn't the best, worked ok in 1 room, other than that I really enjoyed my stay here.
Would definitely stay again! Our family decided on a last minute vacation and found a wonderful deal with excellent assistance when booking with such short notice. Other than the air conditioner being a little less than up to par, it was a wonderful condo... clean, great location and plenty of room!
Family vacation Maryann was wonderful to work with while making the reservation. The condo itself is somewhat dated and needs some work. I see that new carpeting and painting has been done and I hope the owners continue with renovations. Kitchenware was "well used" and sparse. Sofa bed was uncomfortable so our teen with us had to sleep on the sofa itself. Pool was small but the good news was that our 11 year old and young teen had sole use in the evenings. Parking was split in 2 sections: 1 close to the entrance and 1 down a steep driveway. If you can't find a spot on the upper section, walking up a hill or steps is required. Price was excellent for the Memorial Day weekend. Overall, I was satisfied with the accommodations and working with Maryann.
Curtis Barnes, Columbia SC
"The Best Of the Best" In all the years that I have been going on vacation in Gatlinburg, I have stayed in quite a variety of places from 70's retro motels that looked as they have never been upgraded, to cutting edge cabins that were far over priced. For the last 5 years we have gone to Gatlinburg several times throughout the year. We only stay with Oak Leaf, Warren and Mary ann are simply the greatest! When it comes to clean rooms, all of the amenities you want, breathtaking views, and customer care they are the very best in the business. With the prices Oak Leaf offers, I will never put my family in a hotel again! Oh and I must mention the easy booking access through the website. Totally "user friendly!" If I had a 10 star option, I would give it to you! You guys are truly " The Best Of The Best!" Thank You!
Very Enjoyable & Super Value for the Entire Family !! It makes a major difference when your property management company ( Maryann & Hubby ) goes out of their way in a welcoming Christian manner that let's you know your very much apprecisted ! This 2 brd 2 bath condo was clean somewhat spacious and has an excellent view and location to Gatlinburg !! Maryann please stay in touch because we will forsure be comng back to watch God use His paint brush in the spectacular fall changing of the leaves. See y'all next year !!!
Leah, North Carolina
Best Summer of My Life! I lived at the Gatlinburg Chateau for 2 months during the summer of 2011. The rooms were very nice, but each is individually owned so each room has its own unique homely apeal. The grounds are kept clean. Linens and cleaning supplies are supplied for you. The owners are extremely nice and helpful, so if you have time, stop by the office and talk to them!
Ron and Mary, the villages fl.
2010 vacation The service we received from Maryann and Warren was out of this world, the location to all shows and the park wa very easy to get to,the kitchen was very small.
Taylor Family, Springfield, Tn
Our stay at Gatlinburg Chateau is bringing us back next year! We had an awesome time while staying at Gatlinburg Chateau! Warren and Maryann Hanrahan from day one handled our stay with professionalism and class. The view and location was perfect! We enjoyed our stay so much at Gatlinburg Chateau, we booked another vacation for next year before we left!
Chrissy Y, Port Gibson, Mississippi, United States
Family Vacation This cabin was everything we expected and much more!!! The Hanrahans' were very nice!!! I would recommend this cabin to anyone!! The porch was awesome with amazing views, rocking chairs, a swing, a hammock, and a hot tub!! The cabin was well equipped with ample about of kitchen supplies and linens. I would love to stay in same cabin next time we return to the Smoky Mountains!!! Plus we had several bear sighting on the road to the cabin!!
Rocky, Millbrook, AL
Christmas in Gatlinburg First time in Gatlinburg, but what a wonderful experience. The cabin "chateau" was well equipped with everything we needed and gave us the isolation and views we were looking for. We didn't get to experience the snow, but did have the opportunity to spend quality time in and around the area with family that made the trip that much more special. Dining experiences were wonderful and the feel of Germany in some of the side venues of Gatlinburg made me want to return.
michael balogh, fort lauderdale, florida
very relaxing with all kinds of activities to do shaw ridge was everything it was advertised to be. the hanrahans were always there if we needed something, or for information. the hot tub, hammock and porch swing were favorites. loads to do. we went horseback riding, drove go carts in pigeon forge, went to some really neat caverns, went to the aquarium, drove up to knoxville to see the tennesee stadium and the town. we saw a mama black bear and her two cubs playing in a tree on the side of the road just down from the cabin. the facilities had everything with few exceptions. food of course, charcoal for the grill, lots of plastic trash bags, your favorite coffee, beer and moonshine from the distillery! try it, you'll like it! michael balogh, ft. lauderdale
Dean & Cindy, Eagleville, TN
Secluded and peaceful with a view that you will never forget. The chalet we stayed at was awesome. Jacuzzi, hot tub, pool table and fireplace all wrapped up in wood and stone with a view that stretched for miles. Did I mention the 90 or so pictures I took of the black back we named Boo-Boo?
Robyn Ryan, Cincinnati, Ohio
Awesome Oh my goodness this place was so beautiful and it had more amenities than I have at my own home. It was so clean, the showers have double heads so they are on both sides of you. The jacuzzi tub is encased in stone, the pictures are georgous of this cabin but in a good way they dont do the cabin justice. meaning the cabin is even more beautiful. There is a hammock, swing, hot tub and picnic table on the wrap around deck which overlooks breath taking views of the those wonderful mountains. It is private away from others enough so that your not bothered by any noise. The pool table is lots of fun for the family, not to mention a bathroom on every floor. If there is one thing to "complain" about it would be very insignificant, but the shower in the bedroom off of the kitchen could use a light in it. Unless I just did not find the switch there was no light in the shower. But again, no biggie because you have two other bathrooms to choose from with showers. The Hanrahans - Maryann - was wonderful as well. We got somewhat lost trying to find her office (issue with my GPS) and I called her and she got us right to her office. Then later we did get lost trying to find the cabin in the mountain but she came right up there to help us find the cabin. There is one other thing that I would change but it has nothing to do with the cabin or the Hanrahans, the park employees should really make more street signs up there on the mountains and make the numbers more clear to us out of towners. Basically they could add to the directions up the mountain as that would really help you from getting lost. I will for sure be back to rent from the Hanrahans again, it was a terrific experience that will make wonderful memories for my family. I have nothing negative to say about this rental, you must rent this place and see for yourself just how beautiful it is.
Sharon5416, Rome, Georgia
Terrific value! This condo is a great value for the price. First, the pros: beautiful view from private balcony, clean, quiet, only unit in complex with a hot tub on the balcony, unit has it's own wi-fi (which worked perfectly for all 6 of us), walking distance to downtown Gatlinburg, the shower and toilet are separate from the dressing area in the master bath (loved that!!), unit has it's own washer and dryer (which we used extensively). Now for the few minor cons: the kitchen is small (however, we did use it quite a bit without any major issues), the cookware and utensils could stand to be replaced (a collander would be nice), even though the condo is within walking distance to downtown, the walk back is uphill...so, just keep that in mind for those in your party for whom that may be an issue. Overall, we were very pleased and would definitely stay here again.
Lkemeralds, Dayton, Ohio
Fantastic vacation The condo was very clean. We took my 2 grandsons and the bedrooms are situated so that both have plenty privacy. I enjoyed the washer and dryer so when I came home and after dropping of my grandsons all the clothes were clean. I just washed a load after we came in for the evening every day. We ate most meals in the condo, usually ate one meal out a day. Plenty of dishes for 4 of us and everything I needed. The boys enjoyed the hot tub. My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the patio each morning with our coffee while the boys slept. You could watch the traffic traveling through town. We come to Gatlinburg once or twice a year and will definitely request the same condo next time.
Sledgehammer1, Sarasota, Florida
Almost nice Had no wireless service for all but one day. Master bedroom bed was bad. Okay if you both want to sleep in the middle. Everything was clean and neat. The hot tub and views were great. Would stay with this company again, just not this condo.
Dee Dee, New Castle, Va.
Superb The condo was wonderful. It was wonderfully decorated. We had a hot tub on our deck as well as one near the pool. We had a wonderful time. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
n115rj, Denver, North Carolina

Rockett, North Carolina
Great stay, great location! My wife and I have been staying at Oak Square for over 8-years. We love the atmosphere, location, privacy and the condo has all the comforts of home away from home. Maryanne and Warren are a pleasure to work with. we will continue to lodge in the future.
Clark, North Carolina
Cozy and comfortable Very comfortable and clan when we arrived. Properly managers were very kind and helpful. Could gave used a little updating, but e enjoyed our stay. Loved Gatlinburg and being able to walk from our room to town
CASSIE, Maryville TN
it was truly amazing!! great location and awesome prices! We rented this place and had nothing but the best time! From the initial phone vall with se questions to checkout, staff was super friendly and genuine. When we checked in the place was very clean and very spacious. It is very cute and has a great view of Gatlinburg. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and I will definitely stay here again if I ever go back I would even rent this for a just a relaxing girls night out. One of our guest was pregnant and said she slept better here than she did at home, the king size bed is super comfy!! Very easy access! Five stars!

The view was awesome! My family of 5 stayed here and we loved it! my favorite part was the view of downtown esp. at night while laying in bed just watching it .. very nice and clean.. will Def. be back! If i could change one thing it would be to please add a small tv to the front bedroom even if no cable and just dvd player... this caused disagreements with the kids as to who had to take that bedroom. but other then that it was great!

Fantastic place with a great view overlooking downtown Stayed here Spring Break 2013, and will certainly stay here on my next visit to Gatlinburg. First time to rent a condo verses a hotel or cabin, and it was the way to go. Clean, convenient, spacious, great view from the balcony looking over downtown, three bedroom and more importantly three bathrooms! Maryann manages the property, and took great care in assisting us with our reservations, and information about the property. The property is located just about a block from Ripley's aquarium, and is an easy walk to reach downtown. I highly recommend the Gatlinburg Chateau.

Daughters Wedding Weekend We stayed in a three bedroom/ three bath condo for the weekend to help accommodate extra family members that had traveled with us from Indiana to be a part of our daughters wedding! The condo was clean, spacious, and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. This was the second time we had stayed at Gatlinburg Chateau and we will be back for a third visit soon!

clean condo with tiny kitchen and nice view This is a comfortable property for 4 adults. However, we were 7 women traveling together and had planned to cook. But, 2 founds a hotel near by, so it was fairly comfortable for 5. the management was very helpful - they kept us supplied with the necessities, lent a hair dryer, etc. I just did not notice the square footage when I rented. I would rent again with 4 or fewer people. We are at an age where we all like our privacy. We don't want to share a bed and we need a little elbow room. the pool was not open yet, but the area around it was lovely. Our balcony had a view of Gatlinburg and the surrounding mountains. Overall, a nice experience.
Beautiful Condo--we had a fantastic stay! The condo is very lovely. It is beautifully decorated and the view from the balcony is wonderful. The condo was perfect for our family trip...very cozy! It felt like being at home instead of the typical hotel/condo feel. I really loved the fact that we were close to everything we needed and wanted. Thanks so much for sharing your place with us.

Best Condo with a view in Town Loved this condo and it amenities. Great view of downtown and the mountains. Could also watch the tram and see the top of the chair lift. Lots of room and beautiful, cozy furnishings. Great large balcony. Couldn't of asked for more. This was our second visit to the Gatlinburg Chateau this summer. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Incredible value.

Everything we'd hoped it would be! The first thing we noticed upon entering the Smokey Bear Hideaway is that it didn't smell of mildew (often a problem with mountain rentals) or Febreeze! Everything was very clean and just as advertised. Plus the beds were actually comfortable! Charming space--not over-decorated, the kitchen had 98% of everything we needed to prepare our Thanksgiving meal and the rest of the meals. We loved it!

Great place to stay! Very Cozy! Great place to stay if you are a looking for a weekend/week long getaway! It was very clean and in a private location. Nothing super fancy, but very well decorated and put together. It had everything you would need for a nice vacation. Planning on staying in the same place with a bigger group this Spring!
A Perfect Mountain Retreat Pros: This cute, pet-friendly, A-frame is a lot more spacious than the photo would have you believe. The kitchen is filled with most of the necessary appliances to prepare a nice meal and the hot tub was delightful! The highlight of our trip was one evening when my husband stepped out onto the deck to enjoy some mountain air only to spot a bear that was also enjoying the cool night. My husband wisely retreated into the cabin to give the bear some space. So pet owner's please make note: Before letting your furry friends out at night, make certain that the coast is clear and let your presence known so you don't surprise the local wildlife! Once we found the cabin, we were easily able to navigate to town and the clubhouse. Speaking of the Chalet Village Owner's Club, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the pool was well maintained. Besides the sparkling pool, they offer tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, a basketball court, a play area, pool and ping pong tables, board games, and a fitness room. Access to this club was the cherry on top of our wonderful vacation sundae! Cons: I have to really grasp at straws to come up with a single con for this cabin. I did miss the internet a bit, so there's that. Something that stands out in my mind (although not necessarily a con) is the road to the cabin. It's obviously steep with many twists and turns and sometimes cars coming from the opposite way will try to hog the, already narrow, road. We were almost taken out by a VW Bug! Just be cautious and respectful of others on the road and all should be well.

Great stay We stayed here with two young children, two dogs, and four adults. There was plenty of room for everyone. The Managers were easy to talk to and we had a wonderful time.

A Peaceful Getaway!! We had a wonderful time while staying in the Smoky Bear Hideaway in Gatlinburg. This cabin was just perfect for us. Very nice 4 bedroom; 2 bath, with a fireplace and a hot tub! What a wonderful mountain retreat! We enjoyed such peace and quite with only the squirrels in the trees and singing birds as our guests. We look forward to another opportunity to stay at the Smoky Bear Hideaway and can't wait for our next trip. Warren and Maryann for wonderful when making our reservation and their top concern was accommodating any requests or needs we may have. But, it was so wonderful, we didn't have any needs or requests! We would recommend staying there anytime!! Thank you Warren and Maryann!

Different!! Staying in a cabin was a new experience for me and my family. It was clean and the owners where very friendly and helpful. We did wish the tv had more channels and up to date tv in each room that was the only downfall. But yes we are ready to go back but will b prepared next time.
Wolf family, Louisville, KY
Tranquility and nature abounded! If you want to have privacy, peace and quiet, yet close proximity to all the amenities of the swim clubs and the downtown attractions, then this is your best choice. This bear- theme chalet has all you can ask for: comfortable bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, large screen TV, huge decks for entertaining, covered hot tub, all surrounded by lush scenery. Interior is spacious and light!
Excellent It was the best that I have stayed in so far. It was very cozy and felt like home I was very pleased. It had a wonderful view and was a great price. Will definitely rent next time.
