“Breathtaking view from every room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We do not care for the touristy town of Gatlinburg but wanted to be close driving distance to all attractions. This is a beautiful lodge where every room has a mountain view. It's in a great location just outside of town. I would have been perfectly content spending our entire vacation sitting on the balcony of our room enjoying the view. It's nice that all rooms are suites. Well decorated, clean and reasonably priced. The lodge has an amazing restaurant also. We only ate breakfast there but it was amazing. Service was a little lackluster but accommodations made up for it. We would definitely return and highly recommend.

We were extremely happy staying 3 nights here. The suite was comfortable, clean and very nice. The view from our balcony was spectacular. The breakfast were wonderful. Friendly staff and owner. Highly recommend.

I did not want to stay in the touristy trap town of Gatlinburg hotels but wanted the convenience of being close to the entrance to the national park and restaurants, etc. This lodge is gorgeous. We felt secluded but were really only a mile or so away from everything. The lodge is well run and our room and view were great. The food at the onsite restaurant was excellent. Service and attention to detail are at a premium at this lodge. Will stay again.

To be honest, as we drove into town via 441 from the Smoky Mountain National Park and saw the frenetic mayhem that is Gatlinburg, we felt like we made a bit of a mistake for a quick overnight in the Smokies. But, when we got away from the main drag and reached the Lodge we were really blown away. Beautiful setting, comfortable and nicely appointed rooms, and friendly folks. We never went back into Gatlinburg...

The Good:
-- The lodge's location overlooking Mt. Le Conte and environs is beautiful. Looked like a great view from any room.
-- The main lodge/dining area was really a cool spot to hang out. Made you feel like you were in your own personal hunting/fishing lodge
-- The complimentary continental breakfast was definitely an upgrade over the chain hotels' attempt at free "breakfast"
-- The folks who run this place are extremely friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Helen who made sure the on-property hiking trail was open and cleared of yellowjackets so we could make the hike (see below)
-- Fun hiking trail that takes you down to the creek where there is a pavilion and fire pit. Very cool area to hang out.
-- The room. Wow. Comfortable rustic furniture and other nice touches made it feel very lodge-like. Huge tile shower with bench. All very new feeling. Small kitchen allowed us to make dinner and enjoy it from our private deck.
-- Dinner menu looked very good and an upgrade over choices in town (at least it looked that way to us -- we made our own dinner)

The not-so-good:
-- Wi-Fi was giving us all kinds of aggravation. We could connect at main desk but not in our room.
-- Pull out bed in room was not the most comfortable thing, really.

The kids had a good time but I can see this also as a really nice retreat for couples. In mid-July (mid-week) it was a peaceful place. If we are ever in the area again, this is where we would stay without doubt. Wonderful experience.

A beautiful location and welcoming staff; food was great and the rooms were comfortable and well kept. I liked the efficiency kitchens for meals. Fabulous views and so quiet. I had no idea what Gatlinburg or surrounding areas were like and the bypass was closed so I beeped and creeped through Gatlinburg for 45 minutes to get 10 lights to the turn for the Lodge. I have no idea why anyone would go there for anything, other than a place to sleep, when the woods are so close by. Highly recommend the lodge and the staff

our group had a dinner down by the river (the pavillion?) which was really fun.

Room Tip: main area is in the middle; you can be down a short hill or up the hill or on same level. If you w...

We had a great time and can honestly NOT say a bad word about the lodge. Our room (5305) had a direct view of Mt. Le Conte and the valley where the tram runs. They have an area down by the creek that has a pavilion to use at any time. it is a 1/2 mile walk to the creek and you can call the front desk and they will pick you up and drive you back to your room. We will be back.

Room Tip: 5305 has the best views, except for the one room on the fourth floor in an adjacent building. It al...

This place completely exceeded my expectations. The lodge was beautiful, the rooms were amazing, and of course you can't beat the views. We did not realize that July 4th weekend is one of the busiest and so Gatlinburg was completely overwhelmed. We went into town one afternoon and never went back. But once you're back up in the mountains at the lodge, it's like no one else exists. If we're ever back in this area, we will definitely stay here again! Fabulous!
