Although Gatlinburg TN is probably one of the most beautiful places to stay, not sure I could recommend at New Years. I wasn't aware that this time of year was one of the most busiest.
We were told to take a back way ino town because from the highway to town, which is probably 30 miles would have taken 3 hours. Four lanes in and out of town, but bumper to bumper all night. We would get up early, enjoy the wonderful view from our cabin with coffee in hand, then leave by 8:30 am to beat the traffic rush, and back to the cabin by 3.
Found the area to be a bit to touristy for us, even though we did find a route which took us through the local artists, which we enjoyed.
New Years dinner was booked at the Buckberry Lodge, this place was wonderful. 7 course set meal, small dining area which made it feel personal, antique surroundings, just magical. Wish we would have booked our room at this place, maybe next time off season.
If you like to eat pancakes, a place to get on every corner, shop and see a few shows, this is the place.
