A large open deck overlooking a winding mountain stream, (a perfect place for star gazing), a screened in porch with a ceiling fan for those lazy afternoons and a patio with a state-of-the art hot tub which has 70 powerful, therapeutic jets.

About Bridget McNew

I am a pre-school teacher in Maryville, Tennesse. I grew up in Marietta, Georgia, moved to California and eventually returned to the southeast. I am an avid cyclist, kayaker and outdoor person. I love the quiet serenity at Happy Valley Chalet and hiking on the beautiful 35 acres, Abrahms Creek and in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Bridget McNew purchased this chalet in 1999

Why Bridget McNew chose Tennessee

I purchased the Happy Valley property for the serenity. I moved back to Marietta from California and although Marietta offered a great deal of diversity, I longed for the forests and mountains. I found Happy Valley Chalet just driving around outside Maryville, Tennessee and feel in love with the property, its serenity, its forests and all the wild life in the area.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet sits on an open field overlooking a wonderful mountain stream . The chalet has floor to ceiling windows in the living room so you can watch the sun rise, sunset star gaze and enjoy the sound of the mountain stream. I chose the property for its privacy. Although there are several wonderful neighbors close by, you can not see their homes from the property so there is lots of privacy.

Great place, lots of room and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Two families with kiddos for Spring Break. Lots of room to hike and explore. Hot tub and deck areas are great. Plenty of kitchen stuff, extra towels, blankets - very accommodating! Bridget was great in communicating all details and in making our stay very satisfying.

Beautiful property, comfy furnishings

  • 5 of 5

We went with extended family, 13 of us. Plenty of room and beds for everyone. The kids enjoyed the "ugly" chair. The owner was very gracious and helpful. Julie

A great spot to vacation with friends!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with friends from all over the United States, and couldn't have had a better time. Plenty of sleeping arrangements, room for activities, good proximity to US129/The Dragon and surrounding areas and attractions, and just off the beaten path enough to be a peaceful place to wind down from the day. We'll be back next year!

PEACEFUL, RELAXING, TRANQUILITY

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose this house for our honeymoon and after we stepped in the door we wanted to BUY it! We were so relaxed, and so close to the dragon. You couldn't beat it! Plenty of sleeping arrangements for our friends that came down for the weekend! We're hoping to get this place every year for our annual retreat!

Great location for the Tail of the Dragon. Spacious, quiet, space for bikes, and cars to park, yes!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 13 of my friends brought 11 bikes and 4 cars to have fun at the dragon. This was the perfect spot, 15 minutes (or less) to the overlook, spacious for all 14 of us. Hot tub, kitchen, balcony, this place has it all. Also, the landlord Bridget is very friendly and easy to work with! Will definitely stay here from now on!

Motorcycle and car club enthusiasts will be delighted with this location. We are 2 miles from the Tail of the Dragon (voted the number 1 road in the US to ride). Happy Valley Chalet is the closest place to stay to the Tail of the Dragon.

Things to Do:

•Kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, and tubing

•Hiking

•Cycling

•Fishing

A beautiful mountain lake that is perfect for fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding and swimming is only a mile away. If you don't have your own water equipment we can hook you up with some outfitters.

One of the more fun and challenging roads for cyclists is right out the front door, Foothills Parkway/Happy Valley loop. This loop offers cyclists outstanding views of the Smokies and is not as heavily traveled by motorists as the roads in the Park.
