My heart is saddened by the destruction of our precious Gatlinburg and of our favorite home away from home Carr's Cottages. It is our understanding that the buildings closest to the creek were spared as was the rooms on the left just as you enter the resort along with the original cabin. The rest is gone or heavily damaged. I...

I'm the third generation of my family to stay at Carr's--we have been coming here every Gatlinburg trip since the 70's. This isn't a fancy place, but it's nice, clean, and a great value for lodging that is conveniently situated close to town yet feels like you've turned back time as soon as you arrive. You also have several options...

I stayed at Carr's years ago when my kids were still in school. The recent trip was with two of them, now grown. This is a good place if you have more than two children. The townhouse we stayed in had two bedrooms and 3 beds. On our first trip we utilized the sleep sofa as well. Carr's is not...

Booked at the last minute on the phone. They do not have internet booking. Room price was wonderful compared to other area hotels. Short walk to down town. Staff were friendly and helpful. They don't offer daily maid service so I had to get new towels once (I never use hotel maid service unless I'm present) so not a big...

This was our first time staying at Carr's. We decided to drive up from Tampa, FL a day early and our resort for the week would not be ready until the next day. We decided to try out Carr's and rented 2 motels rooms, 1 for myself and my husband and 1 for our 2 kids. It was a very...

We've stayed with Carr's 3 or 4 times now and I can honestly say that every time, it has been an absolute pleasure to stay there. Nestled in the heart of the Gatlinburg area, you would expect it to be somewhat noisy and difficult to get in and out of. But Carr's is truly a paradise cove in the hustle...

We had a ground floor, 2 queen bed, wood fireplace room. Cons: When we first walked in it smelled extremely musty and we had to open the windows to let it air out a bit. After moving around in the room and turning on the heat for a bit the smell wasn't as strong, but musty smell lingered in the...

I am the 3rd generation to stay at Carr's and I love it! They are a little outdated but who cares. We aren't in our room most of the time anyway. They are close to downtown and have a great pool and a creek my kids love to play in. It just feels like coming home when we come here....

We stayed in the Laurel Knob chalet. The location was a little out of the loop but it is clean and the staff is very welcoming. My husband and I would definitely stay here again. This particular unit has a deck on each level where you can sit and relax. You also have access to the pool and hot tub...

We stayed in room #20 - this was a king bed, full kitchen, had 2 recliners, and TV.
