The Smokey Mountain Lodge is located at red light #8 in Gatlinburg. It is walking distance to downtown Gatlinburg. The decor is beautiful. Well equipped kitchen. The layout is wonderful for a large group. The master bedroom/bath is on the main floor with the Living room/ Kitchen. Downstairs 3 bedrooms/2 baths and a game room. (The air hockey table did not work properly). We had a bear come into the yard and visit for over 2 hours while we watched him on the back deck.

The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner of the Chalet was very, very nice and helpful. I would highly recommend this Chalet to any large group. There is so much space - you can all gather to play games or have lunch, breakfast and dinner together yet when you need a little time to unwind you can have privacy when/if you need it.

Some of the things that we did while in the area were:

Zorb- a must do! It was a blast!

The Miricle- Very touching. A must see!

The Comedy Barn- Good Family fun!

Dollywood- Great Christmas shows and decorations.

Wonder Works- Fun for all ages.

Go Karts and Putt Putt- very fun

Clingman's Dome- beautiful esp on a clear day.

Cade's Cove- Saw deer, turkey, bear, bucks.

Great Smokey Mountain National Park- Townsend - All a must see.

Our overall experience was wonderful. We cooked and sat down and enjoyed family, friends and great food on Thanksgiving day.

At night time we can look at all the lights in Gatlinburg from the back deck. There is a wonderful view of the sky lift, and space needle.

There is fast access to the National Park.

Teenagers can walk downtown daily and enjoy the attractions.

This Chalet will help any family or large group have an enjoyable vacation in Gatlinburg!!

Thank you for such great memories!!

Owner's Response: What a nice review - could not have said it better myself!!! Our family has been getting together every year at Smoky Mountain Lodge for some time now, and we know how great it is. We love to share it with nice people and really appreciate it when they take the time to let us know how much they enjoyed their stay there. You just can't beat the convenient arrangement for a large group, the beautiful decor and the wonderful location right in Gatlinburg. Getting together with family and friends often is one of the best investments you will ever make and you simply cannot put a value on it. We are fortunate to have done this ourselves in Gatlinburg for many years and are pleased to be able to offer Smoky Mountain Lodge to others to do the same.

Wonderful fall trip for Michigan travelers

A party of 12 spent the past week here. Very nice place and a true home away from home with all the comforts of home. We purchased food and prepared our meals at the property. There is lots to see and do in Gatlinburg and Pidgeon Forge. Every possible eating place you can imagine is here. Check out the Motown show in Pidgeon Forge, Nice entertainment!

Minor complaints: Just as I am writing the transformer blew. I probably would not mention, but this is the second time since we have been here. It is about 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. Poer back at 5:15 p.m. This also happened about 7:30 a.m.Friday morning for about 2 1/2 hour. It was hard to find the thermostat, but we phoned customer service and the man came right away. Go figure... it was at the top of the 2nd floor landing. Some centipedes on the lower level. The entrance from the road is not clearly visible and we missed it several times. The steps to the house entrance are steep if you are physically challenged.

Would highly recommend staying here. A wonderful time!!!

Our family of 19 just spent a wonderful Labor Day weekend at Smoky Mountain Lodge. It is a beautiful home with fantastic views of downtown Gatlinburg. Check in is so so easy too with the lockbox set up. The home was perfect for families with small children as the bedrooms are separated on the three floors and everyone had their own space. Bedrooms are very large and The beds were so comfortable too!! It was only two minutes from a nice park that the kids could go play at and also to the entrance to a beautiful drive up to several falls. The location is perfect to walk to downtown Gatlinburg or you can catch the trolley at the bottom of the hill. We would highly recommend this to any large group coming to Gatlinburg. It was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. The grill probably needs to be replaced but we were able to use the two charcoal grills. The kitchen could use hand towels and maybe a few more baking dishes. But, those things certainly did not hinder our stay at this beautiful cabin. We will certainly be visiting again. We have wonderful memories of our stay at Smoky Mountain Lodge!!

Our family stayed in the Smokey Mountain Lodge in Gatlinburg last week--What a BEAUTIFUL CABIN!! We had 14 adults--11 from Iowa and 3 from Florida--this cabin worked fabulous for our family of 7 siblings, spouses, and our mother. I loved the idea of all staying under the same roof verses staying in individual rooms in a hotel. Each of us 6 siblings took a night to prepare supper for everyone. We ate like KINGS!!! We had adequate seating for all and the grill was very big so we could cook enough for everyone at the same time. The kitchen had most everything we needed to make supper and even bake dessert!! The men enjoyed the pool table in the basement--they called it "their bar room". The beds had mattress toppers which made them very comfortable. Loved the decor--the bedroom each had an animal theme; elephant, zebra, tiger, etc. This cabin is gorgeous.

Owner's Response: One of the things we enjoy about owning Smoky Mountain Lodge is sharing it with nice people and we really appreciate when they take the time to write such a great comment on their stay there. We understand all the good things they say about it since we get together there every year with our whole family. We were there in June 2010 and are already planning for next year which will be the eight year in a row for us - we never get tired of Smoky Mountain Lodge or the area. We did put in all new mattresses recently - we like to be comfortable also, plus new leather sofas and tables in the living area, and some new bedding. Always stay where the Owner actually stays as it will invariably be nicer and better maintained.

Great location for those who want to 'Go To The Mountains' and still have easy access to the entrance to Smoky Mountain National Park (park entrance is just blocks away), catch the tram to Ober Gatlinburg, be conveniently located in Gatlinburg with Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Outlet Malls, etc just minutes away; and who don't want to have to make multiple daily trips up a long, narrow, winding mountain road to get to their accomodation, especially at night.
