rental home in chalet village

I'm looking at a rental home that is located on Sourwood Drive in Chalet Village. What kind of roads will we be on to get to this house?

How far would we be from town?

The roads in Chalet Village are narrow (2 lane) and winding, and steep in places. Not bad if you take it easy. The roads are paved, so any type car will be fine. Sourwood is in North Chalet Village, which is convenient to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, maybe a couple of miles. It is easy to get in and out of that area if you turn by the Visitor Center and follow Wiley Oakley up the mountain.

You can see that road and others in the area on Google maps. Go to http://maps.google.com/ and type in Sourwood Drive, Gatlinburg and you'll get a great view of the roads. I've never stayed in that area but sure looks like some great mountain views from there. :)

We are booked for April to stay in Chalet Village on N. Baden Dr. I was told by the owner that it was a four minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg. I was also told that the roads are easily navigable. Since I live in the North Georgia Mountains I'm hoping that I won't find it too much difference then some of the mountain roads around here.

We just returned from Gatlinburg and stayed in the Chalet Village area off Wiley Oakley. As one person stated, the roads are narrow and curvy but you'll be fine if you just take it easy.

Enjoy your stay.

If you go to google maps like mentioned, you can switch to satalite and use street view to actually see the roads you will be driving on. Just move the little yellow man to the spot you want to see. Pretty cool!

I'm from NW Ohio where it's flat as a pancake, and I've stayed up in that area for the last 6 or 7 years. I've never had any problems (well except last year when I bumped the keys with my knee and turned the car off on the way down...quite exciting!) As long as you use your lower gears coming down and not your brakes, it's a snap.
