“Great Family Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stayed 4 nights with our two girls, 12 and 6. It was a real convenience to have the full kitchen and the fireplace was a big hit. We had beautiful views and my little one cried when we had to leave. She wanted to move there. It is very close to the bustle of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge but allows for you to get away from the neon of both places. The free breakfast options are limited but you can pay for a full breakfast with eggs, etc. Regardless, it is nice to be able to just walk to the main dining hall for a few pastries, granola, mild and juice.

Room Tip: Only the third floor units in our building had 'real' fireplaces. The others had gas firepl...

Totally loved this resort - it felt isolated, quiet, peaceful but was quite close to everything and the crowds of people who visit the area. We had a gallery suite - had room for all 5 of us - ( 3 kids)_ plenty of space for our weeks worth of luggage - and a kitchenette - for making picnic food for hiking. We loved making fires, hiking the small trail at the resort - and eating, relaxing by the stream. We ate dinner in the resturaunt 3 times - great each time. Breakfast was only cereal, fruit, and danish, but fine. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Would happily return for a visit.

Room Tip: likes the higher floor - but depends if you want to see trees only - or other hotels and lights in t...

We didn't stay on property, just ate dinner there and it was THE best dinner in Gatlinburg! Zac was a great server. Not only did he serve us, he entertained us, informed us, took our picture, and generally did everything he could to make our dinner special. The staff was extremely pleasant and acommodating from the time we got in the parking lot to the time we left. And the food was outstanding! It truly was a 5 star quality dinner. The drive up was beautiful, as it really is UP the mountain. The view was perfect. We will definitely be going back and recommending this to everyone.

Room Tip: Get an early reservation so you can either sit outside or sit by the window to enjoy the view.

Gatlinburg is all fun but at some point it is nice to come back to some sanity. This is the place..... The owner (Buddy) is involved and such a nice person and the staff is great too. They accomodate you any way they can. The food and dining room are great which is a BIG step above downtown Gatlinburg. Love the vibe of the place! Fireplaces in the rooms, great detail to the little things, and a special feel that can't be explained in this posting. I would come back to Gatlinburg just for this place which is saying a lot since I am not from even close to this area!

The accomodations were excellent with a great view. The food was the best I have found in Gatlinburg. The grandkids enjoyed the fire and short hike to the creek and outdoor pavilion. The bonus was arriving through Townsend, Metcalf Bottoms and the bypass and avoiding the traffic of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge altogether but still just five minutes downhill to Gatlinburg.

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view. The upper building seemed to have the best view of Mount LeConte.

Totally removed from crowds and commercialism of Gatlinburg yet quick easy access to many hiking trails/Dollywood/shopping and more. Lodge staff devoted to meeting your needs and Tennessee friendly. Authentic decor throughout. Mediocre continental breakfast. Evening dining menu limited, pricy, nothing to rave about. But, hard to find decent meals anywhere in Gatlinburg

For a getaway that still has the access to the tourist section you can't beat the Lodge. Accommodations are spectacular and the restaurant is the best for miles around. Impeccable service you might expect but a homie feeling you will love. Not a bad view from any suite.

Room Tip: If you don't mind stairs the upper floors have a slightly better view.
