We’re not only located along the river but we’re also just steps away from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and within walking distance of the best spots in town. You can easily take a morning stroll along the Gatlinburg Trail, wildlife watch along the stream as you sit on your private balcony, walk to lunch and to the Gatlinburg SkyBridge or Ripley’s Aquarium. When you’re finished up, come back to the hotel and relax in the pool or lazy river for a bit before heading out for your next adventure.

The Experience - Gatlinburg’s Grand Tradition

However, a stay with us is much more than a few nights or a week of sleeping in a building in downtown Gatlinburg and having access to everything you need while away from home. A stay with us is a true Smoky Mountain experience. From the rustic lodge style design of our building to the history of our property, you’ll find that spending a vacation with us is a great way to immerse yourself in the Great Smoky Mountains. For more than 20 years, we have welcomed guests from all over the world and soon after opening in 2000, we became known as “Gatlinburg’s Grand Tradition,” a title that is very dear to us. Our owners’ created our hotel with a hope of bringing back the traditional style of hospitality that their grandmother had provided to guests at Bearskin Congress Motel from the 1940’s to the 1980’s in downtown Gatlinburg. Since opening day our staff have consistently strived to provide a warm and family friendly setting. We take great pride in the fact that we’ve watched children grow up in our lazy river, summer after summer. We love welcoming guests on their honeymoon and then again for anniversary after anniversary. We look forward to seeing the smiles on the faces of guests as they’re checking out, because we know that there’s a great chance that we’ll be seeing them again, time after time.

We would love to welcome you soon and if you have stayed with us, we would love to see you again! Take a look at all our hotel rooms and come enjoy a stay at our Gatlinburg hotel with a lazy river.
