Dive into fun on your next vacation when you stay at our Gatlinburg hotel with an indoor pool! From pool games to an entertaining workout, there are plenty of ways to make a splash! The best part is that it’s open all year round for all of our guests. To help you make the most of your time, here are a few more ways to enjoy this fabulous amenity.

1. Play Some Pool Games

When it comes to pool games, sharks and minnows is a classic favorite! The game begins as one person is selected to be the shark, leaving the remaining players to be minnows. The shark starts off on one side of the pool with the minnows on the other. In order to be safe, the minnows must reach the other side of the pool without being tagged. If they are tagged they also become sharks and then the cycle begins again. The younger ones can also play these games on a smaller scale in the Kiddie Pool!

2. Bring the Floats and Toys

If you happen to forget something in your room, don’t sweat it! You don’t have to worry about driving back from a public pool, you can simply go grab it and be back in a flash!

3. Get Your Heart Pumping

Swimming is probably one of the best exercises there is. You can still get the same benefits that come with other workouts, but with a much lower impact on your joints and muscles.
