About Steve Baker
Hi, I am Steve Baker, the owner of Timberwinds. I was born in New Jersey, but have discovered there's no place like Tennessee. I travel quite often, but can always count on great R&R every time I can visit this unique log home in the Smoky Mountains.
Steve Baker purchased this Cabin in 1996
Why Steve Baker chose Chalet Village
I have discovered that Gatlinburg is one of the most unique places I have ever been. It borders the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. And it exhibits a mountain character that is preserved in time. My home is located on a mountainside in the city limits called Chalet Village. This village contains hundreds of unique chalets and log homes. Every home is unique in its design. This has been the perfect area to own a home

This is the place to stay
We had a wonderful stay. Steve the owner was very attentive to our needs during our stay. We had black bears every day on the property. They were beautiful to observe. I loved being secluded, yet not far from the Parkway in Gatlinburg. We will be back next year!!
We saw more bears at this cabin then we have all previous trips to the mountains. One came upon the front porch and the back deck. If you want to see bears up close then this is the cabin to stay in. We had a great time. The owner was very friendly and helpful.
We had a great time. We only stayed 2 nights but it was jammed pack. My grandkids, daughters and myself enjoyed the cabin. Very spacious. It is rustic, clean and had what we needed. It does sit on top of the hill. The drive up to it is really steep but it was doable and we had no problems. Very wooded area and peaceful. There’s also a lot of steps up to it. But we did not have any problems but if you don’t do steps it would not be advisable. Wish we could have stayed a couple more days. I would recommend the cabin. We drove right to it and the owner sent several emails and texts with information. I really liked that!!!!!
The owner was very helpful from beginning to end. I will definitely be back...
We had an amazing time and seeing all the bears made it even more exciting! Out last night there, a bear came up on the porch as I was sitting there! It was great! A mama bear with her cubs walked by as we were packing to leave! We will definitely be back!!
This was an amazing property with beautiful views! Would highly recommend.
Gatlinburg sits on the doorway to the most visited National Park in the US; the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This authentic historic place has a great mountain personality and is greatly influenced by European alpine history
However, although it maintains its quaint mountain charm this town of 3,000 residents often swells to 20,000 people who come to enjoy attractions and leisure amenities that rival large tourist destinations. It is part of the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge- Sevierville tourist destination, the 7th most popular tourist area in the USA.
Gatlinburg is home to Hard Rock Cafe, TGIF, Corky's BBQ along with some great local restaurants. The largest shark tunnel Aquarium, Ripley's Aquarium is a must see. Gatlinburg is also home to a large craft zone featuring mountain artists, sculpters amd other artisans who have lived in these mountains for generations.
There are zip lines, nearby whitewater rafting, great hiking, golf, outlet mall shopping, and Gatlinburg even has even its own ski resort; Ober Gatlinburg, complete with a tram connecting downtown to the ski resort.
But my favorite attraction is the hundreds of black bears who live in these mountains and at times venture down to stroll along the city streets.
There is no place like Gatlinburg !
