There is a lot involved in planning a great vacation! For instance, you have to choose where to stay and what activities to do. Let us help with making the process smoother and more fun! Here are 3 tips for planning the perfect vacation at our downtown Gatlinburg hotel:

1. Choose the Right Size Room

One great feature of our downtown Gatlinburg hotel is that it has spacious rooms. They have 1 to 2 King or Queen beds that can accommodate up to 4 guests. The right size rooms will allow everyone to spend time together while still having plenty of room to relax on their own. If you have a bigger travel group, simply plan ahead to get rooms that are close together. Along with comfy beds, our rooms can have other great amenities. Enjoy fresh air anytime on a private balcony, relax in a Jacuzzi tub, and curl up in front of the fireplace. You can also bring Fido along for your vacation adventures when you take advantage of our pet-friendly accommodations.

2. Take Advantage of Amenities

When guests stay with us, they have access to great amenities! Using them on your vacation helps you save money while still having fun. For example, spend the day swimming in our seasonal outdoor or indoor pools. What's more? The indoor pool area has a sauna and kiddie pool as well. Additionally, you can spend less on delicious food when you dine at our Poolside Cafe. There are excellent choices for any time of day at affordable prices. For example, have an egg plate for breakfast and a burger with fries for dinner. Enjoy your food right there in our cafe! If you want to relax though, take the food up to your room or let us bring it to you! You can also have a nice picnic on the tables near our picturesque mountain stream.

3. Plan Out Your Activities in Advance

Another helpful vacation planning tip is to decide what activities you want to do in advance. This way, you have the best chance of getting tickets for everything you want to do on the day you want to do it! We are located in the middle of all the action, so you won’t have to go far to have fun! Get a close look at all kinds of marine life when you do the Glass Bottom Boat Adventure or visit the Penguin Playhouse at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. See stunning views of the Smokies when you go up to the observation deck at the Gatlinburg Space Needle or walk across the SkyBridge. Take a short drive and spend the day in Pigeon Forge to ride roller coasters and see entertaining shows at the Dollywood theme park. Learn something new when you do the interactive activities at WonderWorks or the Titanic Museum. End the day with great food and entertainment at Dolly Parton’s Stampede or the Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Feud! The variety of activities in the Smoky Mountain area makes it easy for everyone to have fun!
