At Pine Tree Lodge, 3’s not a crowd—nor is 36. Yes, this huge 3-story log home can sleep up to 36 people in its 8 bedrooms, each of which has its own private bathroom. Whether you’re in town with a team that’s competing at nearby Rocky Top Sports World, hosting a family reunion, or on a trip with your church group, Pine Tree Lodge will meet your needs with comfort and style to spare.
Not only does each of the 8 bedrooms have its own bathroom, but each also has a flat-panel TV and direct access to one of the lodge’s 3 huge covered decks. The top floor consists of 4 bedrooms; 2 have a king-size bed, while each of the other 2 sleeps 8 in a pair of queen-size bunk beds.
The master bedroom is on the main floor. In addition to a king-size bed, this room has its own fireplace and a sofa that opens into a queen-size bed, so that 4 people can sleep here. The 3 sofas in the floor’s 2 living rooms (that’s right, Pine Tree Lodge has not one but 2 living rooms) also open into queen-size beds, accommodating another 6 guests. The remaining 3 bedrooms are downstairs. Two of these bedrooms have a queen-size bed, and the 3rd includes 2 full-size beds, so that it can sleep 4 people.
In addition to 3 bedrooms, the lower level is home to the spacious game room. There really is something to keep everyone entertained down here: a pool table, for starters, plus a double shooter basketball game and a Golden Tee golf arcade game. A home theater makes up part of the room. Guests can kick back in the 15 cinema-style seats and watch a movie or a big sporting event on a 110” projection screen. If you run out of snacks or beverages during your private screening, you don’t have to head upstairs to the kitchen—the game room has a convenient wet bar.
Up one flight, on the main floor, are the 2 living rooms, the dining area, and the kitchen. Both living rooms have so-comfortable leather sofas that you can pile onto to watch a favorite show on the large flat-screen TVs. One of the living rooms has a fireplace as well, making it an especially welcoming space for relaxing after a day of skiing or snowshoeing. There’s a large card table too, where you can play board games or set up your laptop to take advantage of Pine Tree Lodge’s free WiFi.
Don’t you hate when a house that can sleep several dozen people has a dining room that can seat only a handful? That’s definitely not the case at Pine Tree Lodge. The whole gang can gather at the huge L-shape, log-style dining table, and if that feels a little crowded, at least 6 people can sit at the neighboring kitchen island. The kitchen, too, is designed to feed the entire group at once. It’s equipped with 2 large refrigerator/freezers, 2 full-size oven/stoves, 2 microwaves, and even 2 dishwashers.
Pine Tree Lodge’s 3 decks are also large enough to accommodate a crowd, with plenty of rocking chairs so that everyone can revel in the crisp mountain breeze, the singing of chickadees and larks during the day, and the chirruping of crickets and tree frogs at night. Likewise, the 2 hot tubs ensure that everyone gets a chance to luxuriate among the steamy, rejuvenating jets of water.
The lodge is located in the Hemlock Hills development, which is as quiet as it is conveniently located. Rocky Top Sports World is less than a mile away; so is the Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Loop. Less than 15 minutes away is downtown Gatlinburg, home to the Guinness World Records Museum, an aquarium, mini golf, and the tram that travels above the town to Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area and Amusement Park.
Finding a rental to accommodate more than 3 dozen people can be a challenge, but Pine Tree Lodge more than rises to it. So book your stay today and get ready to be showered with praise by the rest of your group.
