Terrace Garden Manor

Terrace Garden Manor is conveniently located – yet secluded – and convenient to Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! It is perfect for large groups, churches, and reunions – it sleeps 42 with 13 beds and 7 ½ baths. The home is built in the estate area of Chalet Village and backs up to incredible views and 3000 acres of undeveloped natural forest with abundant wildlife.

This 13-bedroom chalet, custom designed by the famous architect Hubert Bebb of Community Tectonics, was the 1968 Southern Living featured home of the year. Originally from Illinois, Bebb was an innovative architect who worked in Tennessee for the major part of his career. He moved to Gatlinburg in 1950, from Chicago. For the next thirty years, Bebb fostered the interaction of design and community, shaping the look of Sevier County during a period of major growth. Some of his suggestions, such as the uniform system of wooden signage still in use today, were adopted right away. Others, like underground power lines, have only recently been enacted. Bebb’s building designs are recognizable for their unique combination of modernist ideas and regional materials. His architectural signature can be read in the use of native sandstone and steep overhanging rooflines that emulate the shape of the mountains that form the backdrop for many of his buildings – The Tennessee Encyclopedia.

The Terrace Garden Manor chalet accommodates 40 guests and boasts one of the best views in the Smokies. Grill out, relax in the hot tub, or roast some marshmallows around the outdoor fire pit. With tons of parking and even covered parking too, this cabin is perfect for car shows, motorcyclists, church groups, and family reunions. You can even have a wedding in the outdoor shelter with portable tables and chairs included. With 6,050 ft, your group can spread out in Gatlinburg’s best location close to Ober Mountain.

Fallin’ in Love

It’s time to Fall in Love all over again in the Great Smoky Mountains. Fallin’ in Love in one-bed, one bath that sleeps four. It has all the amenities you could ask for in a vacation home, fully equipped kitchen, satellite TV, DVD player, pool table, gas fireplace, Jacuzzi tub, hot tub, queen sleeper, washer & dryer, custom king size log bed and more. This two-story cabin is cozy through and through.


Dragonfly is a custom-built 2-bedroom, 3-bath log home located in the beautiful Sky Harbor Resort, with easy access to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. This cabin offers 2 spacious bedrooms: a wonderful master suite with king log bed and Jacuzzi tub on the main floor; and a second bedroom with a queen log bed and private bath.

Relax and enjoy the gas fireplace in the open living area. The living room offers a sleeper sofa and a fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy yourselves in the lower level game area with pool table, foosball table, wet bar and 2 queen sleeper sofas allowing this cabin to accommodate 10 people comfortably. Three spacious levels of living space give everyone – including your pets – room to stretch out, relax and enjoy the beauty of the mountains – whether by relaxing with your coffee in a deck rocking chair watching the mist rise of the mountain, or soaking away a long day in the hot tub.
