I have been staying here my entire life and I love this place. It is a quiet getaway but still close enough to town to walk. You can grill out by the stream or roast marshmallows. My children love this place a much as I always have. They have a nice heated pool and you can take a short walk... More

This place is great. The 3 bedroom 2 bath cabin is very comfortable for 4 adults and 2 kids. The pool is clean. The grounds are clean. the creek was a lot of fun. The people who run the place are friendly and know where to direct you.

Booked for two nights in one of their cabins. It was so cute and pretty. Away from the hotel but only a short walk to the pool which was a very good size. Good location as a short walk into town. If you fancy something different then this is for you.

We have stayed in a lot of places but Carr's is one of the best. Close to downtown yet far enough away. Trolly comes close to the property or it is couple blocks from down town. The one we choose was so peaceful with the stream. There is a playground for the kids. The pool n hot tube are really... More

My husband and I and our daughter and son in law just got back from a weekend getaway at carr's and it was great. If your looking for a nice hotel with all amenities don't go here. but as we wanted a little quiet time in the woods this was perfect. The suite we stayed in 501 was of three... More

My family has been visiting Carrs for more than 45 years. The motel is in a perfect location in Gatlinburg: it's far enough from downtown to be peaceful and quiet, and close enough to be within walking distance. You can sit I your room or on your balcony and listen to the river. Visitors should be aware that Carrs is... More

This is my second time to stay at Carr's Cottages. It was just as wonderful as the first time, if not more. The staff was very friendly as always. This time we stayed in a double queen with a sitting area and a kitchen. It's like a home away from home. Clean, Comfortable, and a Great location. Close to everything... More

Heard of location, location. That is all that this place has going for it. Our room had a mildew smell in the room. The room was remodeled possibly in the seventies. Curtain in the front window can be seen through during the day and night. No deadbolt on the front door so it can be opened possibly by a credit... More

This place was nice. We stayed here for a reunion. We are already planning to use Carr's as our next reunion space. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were able to walk to all the attractions and shopping.

Wanted a different kind of trip this time to Gatlinburg. Wanted to include sporting events in with hiking. With the help of the owners and staff was advised to take in some weekend Basketball Tournaments and Tenn Smokies Baseball. As my experiences in the past have proven any advise the owners and staff give when asked turned out to be... More
