Whether you’re in town with a team that’s competing at nearby Rocky Top Sports World, vacationing with friends and family, or on a church retreat, you’ll appreciate the comfort, convenience, and charm of Rocky Top Lodge. Not only can the 6-bedroom home sleep 13 people, but it’s also packed with fun amenities such as a pool table, air hockey, and a hot tub. What’s more, in the summer you’ll have access to 3 swimming pools, and downtown Gatlinburg is only 15 minutes away.
With its wood-planked walls, floor, and ceiling, the great room of Rocky Top Lodge is as inviting as you’d expect a Smoky Mountain home to be. In winter the stone-surround fireplace adds to the warm, welcoming ambience; in spring and summer the ceiling fan brings a breezy ease. (Don’t worry: The house also has central air-conditioning and heating.) Stretch out on the sofa to watch TV, kick back in the recliner with a stack of magazines, sprawl out on the rug with the kids to build a Lego fort. You’re on vacation—relax however you see fit.
The great room also encompasses the dining area and the kitchen. Given that literally scores of restaurants are mere minutes away, you might end up eating out most of the time. But if you have a hankering for a home-cooked meal, you’ll find that Rocky Top Lodge’s kitchen has all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you could possibly need. The only things you have to provide are food and an appetite.
The home has a 2nd large space where everyone can gather, and it’s easily as comfortable as the great room. Rocky Top Lodge’s game room includes a pool table and an air-hockey table along with another flat-screen TV and fireplace. There’s also a table that’s just the right size for playing cards and board games. And the leather couch is an ideal spot for surfing the web on your tablet (the lodge has free WiFi) or treating yourself to a nap.
Speaking of sleeping, Rocky Top Lodge has 6 bedrooms, each with the same combination of old-fashioned charm and modern comfort as the rest of the home. One bedroom features a king-size bed, 4 more have queen-size beds, and the 6th has twin-over-queen bunk beds that can sleep 3. The home also has 3 full bathrooms, a washer, and a dryer for optimal convenience.
Rocky Top Lodge’s outdoor spaces are easily as delightful as its interior. From the huge deck you have a view of the Smoky Mountains beyond the woodlands. So that you can make the most of the gorgeous surroundings, the deck includes a table and chairs for alfresco dining and a hot tub. While a soak among the massaging jets of water is a treat any time, it’s especially lovely at night among the silvery shimmer of moonlight, with the hooting of the owls as background music.
Because Rocky Top Lodge is part of Gatlinburg’s Chalet Village community, when you stay in the summer you’ll have free access to its 3 swimming areas, each more fun-filled than the next. In addition to pools and patios where you can stretch on a chaise in the sunshine, these areas include ping-pong, foosball, and even tennis courts.
What’s more, the lodge is just a short drive to the area’s most popular attractions. In 15 minutes you can be exploring the flora and fauna of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Equally close is downtown Gatlinburg, home to Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, the Guinness World Records Adventure, restaurants, distilleries, thrill rides, mini golf, and more. And in less than a half-hour you can be in the heart of neighboring Pigeon Forge, whose attractions include Dollywood, the Titanic Museum, Parrot Mountain and Gardens, and dinner theaters.
No matter why you’re visiting the Smoky Mountains or with whom you’re traveling, you’ll love having Rocky Top Lodge as your home base. Don’t miss out: Book your stay today. We look forward to seeing you!
