Employees pleasant, all is impeccably clean, excellent breakfast, comfortable bed. Did not stay in main house. The only negative to my room was it took forever to get warm water from sink. I mean it was really cold! Loved the tea bar.

From delightful breakfasts to a goodnight dessert delivery, my wife and I found respite from our busy and hectic day-to-day lives! They made Valentines Day weekend a truly romantic get away! The innkeeper was attentive to our every need! We were blessed to have had the opportunity to stay. Highly recommend!

My husband and I stayed at Eight Gables for our first wedding anniversary - we loved Eight Gables while we were there on our honeymoon and didn't think that anything could top our first visit - but this visit, even though shorter, sure did!

Innkeeper answered phone and rudely stated she doesn't accept families. She acted as though I was requesting to bring a pack hyenas with me when I mentioned I had small children. Never thought I'd be discriminated against for being a parent. She could have at least attempted to be polite. Excuse me for being a family man.

I am sorry you were dissapointed with my handling of your reservation. I am always surprised when I am making a reservation and children are brought up in the end of the process. Our website clearly states that children above the age of 13 are welcome. We have many families that choose during the holidays to bring their grown children... More

Several months ago my wife and I spent 3 nights here. This inn consists of the main house and an outlying building. Due to unexpected family matters, I had to change the reservation date twice but the reservations staff was most accommodating. Our stay was in a suite in the outlying building, which is connected to the main house by... More

Will definitely return. Very nice staff. Candy bar, tea bar, hot cider and other drinks. Turn down service with pecan pie left for dessert. Stayed in the daisy cottage and it was beautiful. Fireplace and private balcony. Wonderful full breakfast. Quite and private.

Everything about our stay was amazing. The staff, breakfast, amenities, was great. Their knowledge of restaurants and quality places was so helpful. We want during a busy time of year for Gatlinburg but everything at Eight Gables felt enjoyable, peaceful, and hospitable. We will also loved the fresh desserts in our room each night. We will go back for sure.

We have stayed in a multitude of different types of accommodations in this area and Eight Gables Inn was not only the cleanest and most relaxing atmosphere, the Inn is located in the most convenient location off of the main business/tourist area directly across from the Pigeon Forge-Gatlinburg transfer station.
