About Larry Allen
I am a former NASD broker/dealer that left Wall Street after a 30-year career to become a carpenter and build log homes. I thought I liked being a stock broker until I started building log cabins to rent. Now I know I should have quit sooner. There is nothing like building a log cabin on the side of a mountain with such beautiful surrounding, the smell of a freshly cut log, the smoke and smell of a moaning chain saw. It almost as musical as Vivaldi's "Four Season" classic. However, there is one thing I discovered more gratifying than that and that's saying a lot. It's pleasing my guest and reading the great reviews they so kindly bestow upon my little cabin business in the mountain woods of Tennessee. Just doesn't get much better than that. All the Best, Larry Allen

Why Larry Allen chose Chalet Village
Best location and rate of any in it's class. Only 3 miles to Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountain National Park where there are over 800 miles of trails in the most diverse biosphere on the Planet. And, about 20 minutes to Pigeon Forge and Dollywood. Sensational Views of the highest peak in the mountains and beautiful mountain sunrises from the main bedroom balcony.

Pool with a GREAT View
Cabin lived up to the on-line description. The accommodations and amenities were great! Plenty of space for the six of us. Our family enjoyed the stay. Two minor deficits... the Arcade did not operate. Our kids were too young to use it so it was of no consequence; the front burner on the gas grill did not operate but it did not affect our cooking. The views are spectacular! Our kids had fun with all of the entertainment options provided. The private pool is very special and enjoyable. Mattresses very comfortable. Bathrooms spacious and have great facilities. Loved all of it...even the bears who visited daily! Would come back again to this great cabin.
Thank you so much, David. You should have called me the Arcade On switch in on top of the console. And, I appreciate so much for letting me know the Burner is not working. I just replaced the element inside. Anyway, I have another happy guest for which I am so thankful. There is a Mama bear that peruses the neighbor with her cubs that I swear is so smart that before you know it she will be driving without a license. I hope I told you to remove all the food from your car and lock the doors. I'm so happy you liked the cabin. Come again soon and let me know when you do. Larry
This was the cleanest cabin we have ever stayed in. The amenities are stellar. You really do not need to leave to be entertained. The location is great, the views are amazing. You will see bears, so be careful. The pool and hot tub were very well maintained and a super nice feature. The owner is quick to reply to messages and extremely helpful. We will definitely be looking to book this cabin again for our next vacation. It was the best trip my family and I have had in a while. Thanks Larry.
Thank you, William. You knocked it out of the park with that review. I'm sending it to my assistant who does such a great job. I hope he doesn't ask for a raise. Just kidding. We've had so many bears this year. I can't think of anyone who hasn't had a visit or two. Our trash cans must have the right stuff. Let me know if you think of anything I need to do for your next visit. Cheers, Larry
We had a wonderful time. The drive to the cabin was Amazing. The Cabin was Wonderful. Lots of room, activities and privacy to keep our group from 4 years old to 80 content relaxed.and truly enjoying time in the Mountains. The Views were just plain Beautiful!
We were there less than 90 minutes and saw Momma Bear in the back yard!! No less than 2 hours later Momma and 3 cubs, what an amazing thing to see. We were thrilled!
This place is a must see, We hope to return in the near future.
Thank you so much Cliff. We have had a lot of bears this year and they have all been well behaved, but you have to still be careful as they are still wild bears. I'm so happy you enjoyed the cabin. Recently I bought new 800 thread count sheets which I thought would be extra special for my guest. Not many Innkeepers do that - so I search for ways to compliment my guest with a luxury or two that they may remember. The Mountain are such a great place to vacation especially for the kids. Stay in touch. We'll make it a great time next time too. Larry
Pool and a view.
Easy to rent and mr. Allen was very personable and easy to access. Beautiful cabin however it needs to have a professional cleaning Staff to detail and enhance the stay and structure. Views were beautiful and cabin was nicely stocked with quality dishes and cookware. Pool and hot tub were a nice bonus...i would love to see this property continue to be utilized by others and enjoyed as we did but it again needs to be professionally addressed with detailed cleaning. Memories made and milestone birthday was celebrated and enjoyed!
Linda, Thank you very much for your review. I am so disappointed the cabin did not meet with your satisfaction. I was there just hours before you arrived and found everything to be OK. I left you an email letting you know I had to pick up a damaged chain and that the cabin was clean and ready for your stay. Perhaps I need to reevaluate my inspections. You deserve the very best, and I have obviously let you down.
I wish you had called me. I could have had my assistant there within a few minutes to take care of your concerns. I work on the cabin all the time to make sure something like this never happens. However, Not trying to make an excuse, but when I do not have a vacancy, it does make it challenging to do some things that take a great deal of time. Surfeit it to say I feel terrible for both of us. I hope you'll consider coming again so I can make it up to you. Thanks for letting me know and I'll do better next time. Larry
We had such an amazing short get away with family! The cabin was clean & prepared for our arrival. Larry was extremely responsive and accommodating for us! We even got to see a mama and her cubs from the back deck! If you’re thinking about booking this cabin, look no further!
We had a great week celebrating an anniversary trip with family. This cabin is furnished and decorated very nicely. Lots of amenities included. You can’t get a better view of the city and mountains. We saw bear frequently this trip and you can’t get much higher in the mountains than this, but the roads are paved & maintained well, which is another plus. Larry was fantastic to rent from and very responsive to any questions we had. We would definitely stay again! Thanks for the memories!
