is there anywhere in gatlinburg where you can go with teenagers that you can dance
Hello I am thinking of driving from Miami to Gatlinburg the last week of the year. The route we will be taking is I95 to I26 to I40. I have never driven on mountains before and am a bit scared of the roads, snow etc. Can anyone give me an idea of what to expect in the way of altitudes and curvy roads? I would appreciate it.
After many many views, reading 100's of comments we think we have found the cabin that would fill both couples expectations for a 4 day Christmas holiday. We found it on the HomeAway.com website. We spoke with the owners and were shocked that they are expecting the full amount (over $1400.00) paid in FULL by 8 October 2012 for a 22-26 December stay.
I have traveled all over the world, stayed in more 5 & 4 Star resorts than I can count and never and I mean never have I come across a contract that requires FULL payment, site unseen and virtually protects them from refunding us any monies if anything goes wrong from water pressure, shut off, hot tub not working/heating, etc.
Is this something "local" to Gatlinburg? I am concerned about signing such a contract and paying in FULL. I get that a security deposit and one nights stay, but the total seems way out of line with no reassurance in return.
Thank you in advance for your time, expert advice and any suggestions! ~M
Looking for a place to stay in gatlinburg next month!! We would like something close enough to walk to the strip or has trolley access, indoor pool or heated pool available, kitchen or at least a fridge or microwave in room. would like a 1 bedroom option so that our baby can go to sleep and we can still watch tv in a separate living area. Hotel, condo, or cabin/chalet are all fine.
Where is the most reasonable place to stay with a lot of amenity's like a hot/jetting tub in the room near Gatlinburg?
i'm driving up from Fl next week and although I'm used to mountain roads in Penn/Ny, I do NOT like 2 lane mountain roads with NO guard rail. I'm staying in downtown Gatlinburg at Carrs Cabins...can you please tell me if my "traveling" into the city will have me driving through those conditions or is it ONLY if I decide to do Cades Coves, etc??
is there anywhere you can make your own pottery in the area
Visiting 2nd week in September from Australia, Suggestions for weather clothing in town?
Just hoping if anyone could recommend a nice, good value hotel / motel / B&B with a good view of the mountains. We are staying 1 night in the area on our way to Georgia this month and I want a nice but inexpensive place to rest for the night. We are in our Mid-20s and love the outdoors. Thank you!

Hello, I've been reading about hiking and being aware of your food with the bears. If we pack a picnic when we go out to Cade's Cove and pack it in an ice chest (we will be in a Jeep with top off), is the ice chest good enough to keep the food sealed or should we use something else? Don't want to attract the bears to us or to our Jeep when we are hiking!! Thanks in advance!!
Best Italian or Smokey Mountain Brewery? Thanks in advance!!!
Can someone please tell me about the Appalachian Trail? We are new to the GSMNP, we visited for the first time last May and will be returning this June (can't wait)!! Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance!!
We are thinking of a long weekend in Gatlinburg at the first of April. I knwow this has been an atypical winter (at least in Ohio), but what is the weather ussually like at this time of year there. Can we expect spring flowers/buds?
Thanks for any insight.
I am a single male and am hoping to find a rough hewn rustic primitive 1 or 2 room type of cabin at affordable rate in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon forge area. I don't want a newer built home but an older cabin or shack type dwelling. Anyone know of any hidden gems. I'm there for the nature, not amenities.
We are planing a trip to on this winter around middle December.
My husband bigest interest is to see snow as he has been living on tropic all his life .
By what I see Tennessee ( Gatlinburg ) doesnt get lots of snow on the winter season unless you are in higher elevations .
I found a cabin ( bear cub) which is located on 2700 ft ( by google earth ) .
Do you think we will have plenty snow at that elevation ?
Do you know any higher elevation cabin or any advise .... cause we are going for just 4 days we had not time to spear for a weather to change and get a snow storm....
Please any advise will be appreciate
We are planning to finish our road trip from Texas in Gatlinburg with 4 or 5 nights in the town. We are keen to do a bit of hiking around the National Park and to also check out the other attractions I have been investigating on VT. I would like some recommendations on where to stay. We would love to have a room with a view of either a stream or mountains or something nice for when we just return to the room to relax. Budget is negotiable as if we stay somewhere really nice here we can always go cheaper elsewhere on the trip. We would be visiting in late March. We like to have a fridge/microwave so we can have some food on hand rather than eat out every meal. Any suggestions advice welcome.
We might hike up Mount Leconte in July, but the lodge is full, and I know there are no nice campgrounds near where the hiking trails start, and it will be too long of a hike to drive far, so I was thinking about getting a hotel or motel for a few nights, but ALL the reviews I have seen for anything that isn't like150 and up there are just horrible.
Any advice on a fairly decent , not too expensive hotel? Or should we do the driving and stay in Cherokee instead?
has anyone stayed at a cabin called "Bluebirds Over The Smokies" we are going there in April. or does anyone have a cabin suggestion for 18 people ( 3 families)
Hello! We love Gatlinburg and travel there as often as we can. However, we are getting bored with all the same old things. We have been to the aquarium, the gold places, Cades Cove, Dollywood, etc. We are wondering if anyone has any tips on some things to do that we haven't thought of. We are staying on Ski Mtn. Road on our next trip, we haven't stayed there before. How are those roads at night? Does anyone have any suggestions?
We are planning a vacation trip from Chicago to Gatlinburg in the spring and we are traveling by car with my 3 young children 2,5 and 9. It will be a long ride for them so we are looking for any suggested stops along the way. We are planning a week (7 days including drive time) for our entire trip.
My family is going to the Mt's for my parent's 50th Anniversary. We are spending a week together and decided that we would like to tube in the mts. This is something we can participate in - different ages and skill levels - the problem is finding a place to do it. The only place I have found is "river rats" Has anyone used them? If so tell me what you thought, please.
Can some one recommend a quite good food restaurant in Gatlinburg that I can take some special friends to this summer?
My friend bought his favorite travel coffee mug in a gift shop on the top of the mountain inGatlinburg. He needs to replace it but can't find anything like it anywhere. It needs to be 24 oz or bigger, be able to fit in a cup holder in his car, has to be microwaveable and has no handle. Is there such a thing in one of your gift shops?
Can anyone recommend a restaurant in Gatlinburg? I like the Park Grill, been there several times, would like to go again, but wonder if I should try some place else. How does the Cherokee Grill compair, or the Peddler? Thanks
