Chalet Accommodates Large Groups with Plenty of Parking
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 Tallassee
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 every time
Closest big home next to the dragon, location takes the cake for me. This time the hot tub was broken, which is a big thing for some of the guest, but we love the house for all the other amenities, so no sweat! Will come back next year.
We had a wonderful time at the Happy Valley chalet. We had 12 family members from 4 different states. It was centrally located for us. The home is so spacious, the windows provide awesome views and the flowing stream sounds amazing! The kitchen is equipped with everything you need but the whole place has everything! We had a fabulous time and look forward to coming back again.
Thank you for your kind words. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Happy Valley chalet. You and your family are welcome back any time
Great place for a family reunion on a seclude area
The house is well kept and plenty of social area. The kitchen/dining/living room is ample and open. Owners keep the place in good conditions and plenty of activities to do if opt to stay inside (movies, books, board games, jacuzzi, etc.)
Overall, a great place to stay in the mountains and surrounded areas.
This is a very nice heart worming place , very clean and private.
We where all surprise of the beauty and the privacy this place offer , the way the owner handle are stay was very accessible .

Just right for a trip to Tail of the Dragon
The house is a great fit for a small to medium sized group. It is isolated enough to relax without the sounds of the city but close enough to get the comforts you might need
Absolutely beautiful here. We had plenty of room for everyone. Bridgette is extremely accommodating and super nice. So close to the Dragon129 and the Smokeys. We will be planning a yearly trip here.
Thank you so much for the kind words.
It warms my heart to know that. you enjoyed yourselves at Happy Valley Chalet, it really is a special place.
I would welcome you back anytime .
Happy Valley Chalet is a beautiful 2 story home on 35 acres of tranquility. There are 3 separate outdoor spaces to enjoy. 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. The healing water for the hot tub comes from an underground mineral spring. There is a built-in garage for your sports equipment; kayaks, paddle boards, bikes, and motorcycles (room for approximately 8 motorcycles). There is an outside fire ring next to the wandering stream for your enjoyment and marsh mellows. There is also a charcoal barbecue available all you barbecue chefs.
We have 2 bedrooms upstairs; 1 with a king bed, 1 with 2 queen beds, a futon in the living room and a sleeper sofa that makes into a double bed. Down stairs has a bedroom with a queen size bed, 2 twin beds in an alcove and a queen size sleeper sofa. The house has a gourmet kitchen, internet, satellite TV, foosball table, ping pong table and a DVD player. There are several walking trails on the property as well.
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
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.
