This was my second stay! This first was about 20 years ago for my Senior Trip. We booked a 3 bedroom cottage. It was awesome. It had 2 bathrooms which was wonderful because we had 5 adults and 2 children. The Full kitchen was great to have. Remember to bring your own coffee. My Dad forget his, but he was... More

We recently had a small family reunion and we all stayed in the cottages. The one bedroom cottages were nice, each had a tv in the living room but no TV in the bedrooms and no WiFi available accept for in the management office. The bedroom door for the one bedroom cottages might as well not be there as they... More

My husband and I recently stayed in one of the cottages. The room was so cozy. Everything is clean. There is a deck on the back with a table and chairs. We looked forward to relaxing in our room after a day of exploring.

I was looking for a place right on the main strip and unfortunately this was a bit farther away than hoped. But the desk clerks were very nice and helpful - let us check in early - room was a bit dated but clean - could sit by the stream outside - nice ... HOWEVER - the shower was a... More

This place was probably amazing in 1960. But in 2014 it's was a little bit of a let down. Got a 2 bedroom apartment it was clean but had an awful smell. Bedrooms do not have TVs in them. I think this place would be a gold mine if it was fixed up. We did enjoy the pool an play... More

I always stay here when I go to Gatlinburg Tennessee. We stayed in a two bedroom townhouse that gave us the space we needed. The price is very reasonable and you are just a short walk from the main strip. Also for your convenience you will be on the trolley route. Give Carr's a chance the next time you visit... More

We stayed at Carrs a couple of years ago in a creekside cottage which we loved. This time only the Townhouse Apt was available for our family of 5. There are a lot of pros to staying at Carrs - bigger rooms for our larger family, reasonable price, we can walk to town a couple times a day, the pool... More

My family has been going to Carr's for 40 years, and now when my grown up daughters go, this is where they go too. Other than the 15 motel rooms that are near the office, every room, cottage, or suite has its own special character. The rooms along the stream are tremendous as you go to sleep listening to the...
