OWL'S HOOT CHALET -  Ideal location, beautiful setting, fireplace, free WiFi, and pets welcome!
Springtime is a magical time in our mountain hollow.
Enjoy privacy in wooded seclusion. (Owl's Hoot in the summer)
Owl's Hoot in late Autumn...the colors in the meadow are glorious!
Livingroom features comfy leather furniture (incl. sofa sleeper), wood-burning fireplace, and LCD TV
The open concept dining/living area offers plenty of comfortable seating and near-panoramic views.
Prepare simple snacks to gourmet meals in the fully equipped, well-stocked open kitchen.
The kitchen has all the modern amenities you need to feel at home.
Washer and dryer are tucked away in a convenient closet near the kitchen.
Rest well on the new bed and memory foam mattress in the loft bedroom.
The loft bedroom is open to the great room, but still private and relaxing.
Imagine waking up to this view of the meadow from your loft bedroom.
Soak in the 2-person, 7-jet jacuzzi after a day of hiking or shopping.
The main-level queen room features a romantic iron bed with memory foam mattress & lovely antiques.
Two twin beds with new memory foam mattresses are ideal for kids and single quests.
Spacious, main-level bath with skylight is bright and cheery.
Relax on the spacious deck overlooking the 5-acre meadow and Rich Mountain.
Imagine dining al fresco with this view.
Relax in the shade in your own 5-acre meadow.
Our pavilion is like a tree house for adults.
Drive up to the back of Owl's Hoot - easy access only 1/3 mile from Hwy 321.
Access to Owl's Hoot is level...no scary, steep driveways or roads to travel!
Early spring daffodils adorn the garden alongside the driveway.
Enjoy millions of lovely wildflowers while walking in the meadow.
Enjoy the wintry view while curled up with a cup of cocoa or a glass of wine.
Take a walk in a winter wonderland while enjoying your stay.
Snowy owls greet you in the garden area.
Winter is a beautiful time of year here.
Not your average log cabin. Come discover the Owl's Hoot difference!

“Best place we’ve ever stayed with our family!”
Reviewed 11 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We have stayed here three times and Home to return again! Our grandchildren love it. It has all the amenities you could hope for, near affordable shopping for groceries and gas, nice variety of restaurants & very close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

“A beautiful cabin with a wonderful view.”
Reviewed 30 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Wonderful cabin, the only negative thing is the person who slept in the downstairs bed said the mattress was very hard. Had an unusual experience, the first evening we had gone to the grocery store and picked up a pizza. When we were unlocking the door we heard a noise, thinking it was a deer, as we turned around there was a bear in one of the trees by the deck. Don't know who it startled the most, us or the bear. Did not take us long to unlock the door.

“Great stay!”
Reviewed 27 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We enjoyed our stay immmensely. Tyra was kind enough to let us check in early which was a big help! The place is beautiful and well stocked. The only down side it’s far from Gatlinburg and some of the attractions. But Cades cove was very close about 15 minutes...alll in alll it was a great experience!

Loved the cabin which was well stocked, clean and close to Cade's Cove. Especially loved that it was dog friendly with deck that was gated. Will definitely rent again!

“Always thinking about it!”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in September 2015

I can't believe it's taken me 2 years to write this review! It's been a busy 2 years and I am a procrastinator, so...whoops.

I have never forgotten Owls Hoot (or as my young daughter called it, "Owl Hoots). I keep wanting to come back but it just hasn't happened yet.

We were there for a week in August 2015. This cabin was beautiful, clean, very (VERY) well equipped. Easy to find and convenient parking. It was perfect for our family because we have several young children and the porch/deck is gated. I loved the decorating- tasteful and nice to look at. It felt like home (only nicer than my home, hah!). The location is fantastic, especially if you prefer to be on the outside of the touristy craziness that is Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.

We are hoping to someday come back in the winter and make use of the fireplace :)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the chalet! This is our second trip to the same location, having stayed at the Hideaway location last year. Everything was as described in the ad, and it was close to Townsend and the Smokies, yet secluded enough to think that you were all alone. Enjoyed the hot tub and other amenities to the fullest! Hope to stay again soon. No disappointments! Thanks, Myra!
