When planning a family vacation, it’s important to find a home away from home and a place where every member of the family will be happy! At our downtown Gatlinburg hotel, we absolutely love families and we’re certain that your family will love being our guests! We wanted to share just a few of the reasons that you should stay with us on your next trip to the Smokies, but you’ll find many others during your time at our hotel!
Our hotel is located in Downtown Gatlinburg as well as just down the road for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You can easily take a family stroll through town to enjoy the shops, attractions and restaurants or take a walk on the Gatlinburg Trail located nearby.
If you want to explore the park further, take a short drive to the Sugarlands Visitor Center. You’ll find that the staff are more than happy to help you get started on your first Smokies hike or scenic drive. You can also hop on the Gatlinburg Trolley and take a ride to other attractions or into the specific areas of the Smokies. When staying with us, you’ll love our location!
At our hotel, you'll find that our rooms are a great fit for families! With plenty of space, a mini-fridge, microwave, flat screen TV and free wifi our guest rooms have everything that your family will need for a comfy stay. We serve a free complimentary breakfast every morning and we have an on-site market for snacks or last minute needs. Our hardwood floors make spills no big deal and we serve cookies every afternoon in the lobby. We have plenty of free parking available and we're located near many of the restaurants and attractions of the area. Our outdoor pool is great for taking an afternoon dip to cool off or book a room with a balcony and enjoy time relaxing in between adventures.
