Gatlinburg Getaway is ideal for a family or class reunion, a church or corporate retreat, a wedding party, or a multifamily vacation—and not only because it can sleep up to 22 people. The sprawling 3,900-square-foot, 5-bedroom lodge also boasts 2 massive decks with mountain views and luxuries such as a hot tub and a pool table. All that, and it’s less than 10 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg!
The 5 bedrooms are spread out among Gatlinburg Getaway’s 3 floors. Each includes a flat-panel HDTV with a DVD player, a full bathroom, and ample storage. One suite, which makes up the entire top floor, has both a king-size bed and a sofa that opens into a bed for 2 more. The main floor and the lower level each have 2 bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and the other with a pair of queen-size beds. The downstairs game room’s sofa bed can sleep another 2 guests, and both sofas in the main floor’s great room open into beds for 2.
If there are kids in your group, they might clamor to make the game room their bedroom. Along with a full-size pool table, the room has an air-hockey table, a large flat-panel TV with DVD player, and a stone-surround gas fireplace. There’s a large table as well, perfect for business confabs and poker games alike.
The game room offers plenty of space for everyone to congregate, but it’s not Gatlinburg Getaway’s only sizable gathering spot. The great room on the main floor has plush seating for kicking back and watching TV or warming up by yet another fireplace. In addition, there’s a dining table that easily seats 10 and a breakfast bar for 3 more. The breakfast bar is also a handy spot for helping with meal prep—and once you see how roomy and well equipped the kitchen is, you might be more than happy to get cooking.
Gatlinburg Getaway has an outdoor charcoal grill as well, plus several picnic tables—both on one of the decks and in the front yard—so that you can dine in the fresh air, the spectacular mountain views, and the singing of wrens and warblers. The 2 large decks, in fact, may become your favorite spot for relaxing with friends and family. You can gaze at the mountains and woodlands from the porch swings, the many rockers and Adirondack chairs, and most luxurious of all, the lower deck’s roomy hot tub. Is there anything as relaxing and rejuvenating as soaking among steamy jets of water while listening to the breeze rustle through the trees? We don’t think so!
Among the lodge’s other amenities are free WiFi, unlimited long-distance calls, 2 stereos, and a washer and dryer. You’ll arrive to find fresh towels for all 5 bathrooms, all the beds perfectly made up, and plenty of extra bedding. And because Gatlinburg Getaway is part of the Black Bear Falls Log Cabin Community, you’ll have free access to its amenities, which include a clubhouse with a meeting room for 50 people and, in the summer, heated adult and kids’ swimming pools.
There’s so much to enjoy at the lodge itself, you could happily while away your entire stay on its premises. But then you’d be missing out on all the unique attractions the area has to offer. At the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you can hike, bike, and ride horses among wildlife, wildflowers, and waterfalls. Downtown Gatlinburg offers a wealth of restaurants—dig into a juicy steak one night, barbecue ribs the next, and everything from pizza to pancakes in between—along with an aquarium, mini golf, and other attractions (the Guinness World Records Museum, anyone?). Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, go-karting, zip-lining, golf, and so much more are only a short drive away.
Whether you’re visiting for work, pleasure, or a bit of both, Gatlinburg Getaway is an ideal home base. See for yourself: Book your stay today!
