Smoky Mountain Lodging

Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge Lodging
in the Great Smoky Mountains


Chalet and Log Cabin Rentals - These privately-owned Great Smoky Mountain log cabins and chalets usually serve as vacation homes for the owners for several weeks a year. The rest of the time they're available for vacation rental. You benefit from their choice location (mountain views or stream side), privacy, and a full kitchen which gives the option of preparing your own meals. Another benefit includes the capacity of some to sleep up to 16 people. All have amenities such as Jacuzzi jetted hot tub, wood-burning fireplace, satellite or cable TV, and barbeque grill. Larger groups such as family reunions or weddings can be accommodated by reserving adjacent homes. In season, the cost per night averages $135.

Motels and Hotels - both luxury and economy, are available for rental on the parkway in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and other major city thoroughfares or in quieter more secluded settings within minutes of all shopping and recreational activities of the Smoky Mtns area. Amenities can usually include pool, laundry, game room, and fitness center.

Vacation Rentals by Owner - Smoky Mountain, Cosby, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and Townsend, Tennessee vacation rentals offered directly from the owner.

Tennessee Smokies Bed and Breakfast and Country Inns - There has been a dramatic rise in preference for Great Smoky Mountain B&B accommodations in the past few years. One reason for this growth is because the innkeeper pampers the guest. As the name implies, the price includes breakfast, which can range from the continental style to a full country breakfast. The innkeeper always has excellent recommendations for local dining, recreational activities, and sightseeing. In season, prices average about $125 a night per couple. Rod's Guide includes a directory of B&Bs in the Smokies and Southern Highlands area.

Condominiums - Condos are available for rental on the parkway in Gatlinburg and other major city thoroughfares or in quieter more secluded settings within minutes of all shopping and recreational activities of the Smoky Mtns area. Amenities can usually include pool, laundry, game room, and fitness center.

LeConte Lodge - LeConte Lodge, the highest inn providing lodging for visitors in the East (and the only real lodging in the Smoky Mountains National Park), can accommodate an average of 45 guests per night, and normally fills up a year in advance. The only way to get to the lodge is to hike--five major trails drape the mountain, the most scenic and popular of which is the Alum Cave Bluff Trail. The nightly charge per visitor is $80 and includes dinner and breakfast.

Campgrounds - Inexpensive and casual, these facilities cater to tent campers, RV owners, or a combination of both. Rod's Guide features a directory of all types, and also includes a special section adapted from Johnny Molloy's suggestions from his new guide "The Best in Tent Camping:Smoky Mountains". Average cost per night: $8 for tent sites.
