Listen! I read a lot of reviews before our trip to Gatlinburg....A LOT! So based on the reviews I read about Carr's we decided to stay. I am so happy we did. This is a fabulous place. We rented a cottage that slept all seven of us. The place was much larger than I had anticipated. If you wanted to go off alone you could or all of us could enjoy the living room as it had plenty of space. The staff was courteous. The surroundings were quiet. The location was perfect. We never fought any of the crazy downtown traffic. We would drive down to the bottom of the hill, park in a garage (six $$ for the day) and spend the day tooling around town. It was wonderful. I can't imagine we would stay anywhere else. The cost is beyond reasonable. The place was clean! And for me that is the most important. Thank you Carr's for contributing to a wonderful family vacation!
I'm giving a lower sleep quality rating only because the beds were too firm...at least for me. I don't like a hard mattress. But having said that, I would stay here again and again and again.
