Going for a swim is a family vacation tradition! When you stay at Sidney James Mountain Lodge, you’ll be able to enjoy some poolside fun no matter what the weather is like outside. In addition to our two seasonal outdoor pools, we also have a wonderful indoor pool that is open year round. Here are four advantages of staying at our hotel in Gatlinburg TN with indoor pool:

1. Perfect for Kids

If you will be vacationing with kids, a hotel with an indoor pool is a must! Children absolutely love to play in the water, and parents love to have something to keep their little ones occupied. The Sidney James Mountain Lodge pool is sure to impress your kids with its awesome decorations. Featuring trees and vines, the pool feels like a secluded Smoky Mountain swimming hole. Our indoor complex also offers a special kiddie pool, which is ideal for our youngest guests.

2. Poolside Relaxation

When you stay at our hotel in Gatlinburg TN with indoor pool, it’s easy to unwind. Our indoor pool is always kept at 89 degrees, which is the perfect temperature for floating in the water or resting on a noodle. In addition to the pool, our indoor facility also features a large hot tub and a sauna room. Whether you enjoy a soak in the bubbly whirlpool tub or the heat of the sauna, you are guaranteed to feel relaxed and refreshed.

3. Great Backup Plan If the Weather is Bad

Of course, Gatlinburg is famous for its outdoor activities. With the Great Smoky Mountains National Park just minutes away, hiking the trails and admiring the area’s beautiful scenery are some of the most popular things to do on vacation. However, sometimes the weather just doesn’t cooperate with your outdoor plans. Rain, cold, or even snow can put the brakes on that hike to Laurel Falls or that picnic in Cades Cove.

Fortunately, guests at Sidney James Mountain Lodge will always have a wonderful backup plan if their scheduled outdoor activities aren’t an option. Having a fallback plan means that your kids won’t get antsy if you need to reshuffle your vacation itinerary.

4. Have Lunch by the Pool

If your family is enjoying the indoor pool, you don’t need to break for lunch because Sidney James Mountain Lodge has a great onsite restaurant. Our cafe offers an excellent selection of sandwiches, breakfast foods, salads, beverages, desserts, and more. Rather than leaving the pool, showering, and driving to a restaurant on the Parkway, you can carry on with your poolside fun and pick up a quick and delicious lunch from our cafe. You can see our complete menu on the Poolside Cafe section of our website.

As you can see, our hotel in Gatlinburg TN with indoor pool truly has it all. Guests will enjoy all of the best amenities and an incredible location that is within walking distance of all the superb shops, attractions, and restaurants on The Strip.
