This family owned business was easy to deal with, extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely be staying with them again. We were across from the office so our wifi reception was great. No cleaning fees! We had a fireplace and kitchen. The wood, kindling, matches and a full kitchen was provided. Our cottage was clean. Rates were very reasonable... More

Stayed one night for Christmas parade. have stayed here 2 other times before because we like the atmosphere, staff, and VERY FAIR PRICE. I also liked that they had a reasonable cancellation notice. Again the price was 79 which was great to lay your head down. Room is spacious and sheets were clean. Bed comfy and no motel noise. Room... More

We visited Gatlinburg w/ 2 toddlers 20 yrs ago, stayed here, and have recently re-discovered Gatlinburg & the Smokies. We stayed here, now, in a second-floor motel room on the stream. I was happy to see that everything has been kept up the last 20 years. The other reviews are correct...the décor is vintage, but clean and the wonderful setting... More

Loved everything about this place but the poor wifi reception. Had called in advance to make sure that we had in-room wifi, and were assured that we did. When we got there, we were assigned a room that was reached by going down many steps and behind concrete walls. The wifi did not reach the room, and when we complained,... More

We have stayed here before in the motel but this time we stayed in a cottage and loved it. It will be our permanent place to stay in gatlinburg from now on. It was super clean and the beds were very comfortable. Loved the gas fireplace and the balcony overlooking the stream. Can't wait to stay here again.

We loved it. The staff at check in were friendly. The place was so romantic and located close enough to shops, yet far away enough for privacy. We are planning to go here every year for our anniversary.

We recently made a really quick decision to drive up to Gatlinburg for the weekend. As usual we called Carr's. They told us they were booked and did not have any rooms available but to call back. Well we decided to look around and really could not find any rooms that had any vacancies, so we decided on a whim... More

My family loves to stay at Carr's all throughout the year. It welcomes you with friendly faces as soon as you arrive. The host knows your name (if you stay often) and a smile is not to far behind. The Carr's Cottages and Resort is not like one of those fancy high rise big dollar places, no its down to... More
