Gatlinburg R & R

Overview

Quote:
We are many time returnees to Gatlinburg and three-time returnees to Gatlinburg Town Square. We love staying here, as it affords some privacy from the main Parkway (3-4 blocks away), yet is close enough to walk to the many shops, resturants and amusement facilities on the Parkway. Your family will certainly enjoy a trip to nearby (5 miles) Pigeon Forge, where you can take in Dollywood, Splash Country, Dixie Stampede or just go go-carting or bungee jumping if thrill-seeking is a part of your trip.Quick Tips: Take time to browse the many quaint gift shops and cafes in the area. One of my personal favorite areas is "The Village." It is located right on the Parkway. A fun place for shopping f...Read More

Gatlinburg Town Square Resort

Hotel | "Gatlinburg Town Square"

We obviously love staying at Gatlinburg Town Square, as this was our third visit to this resort. The supplies, i.e., linens, towels, dinnerware, dishwashing detergent, etc., were more than adequate. Beds are comfortable, and bathroooms are large. The gas log fireplace controlled with a wall switch is especially convenient for chilly nights or mornings. The grounds are beautiful with flowers, rocking chairs, etc. The amenities including indoor and outdoor pools are well kept. Even the smell of the cedar railings as one walks on the property is enticing and welcoming. The large waterfall near the glass elevators is relaxing and certainly fun for the children.

Bennett's BBQ

Restaurant

Quote:
On every family trip to Gatlinburg, we always make at least one breakfast stop at Bennett's for the sumptuous breakfast buffet. The buffet includes bacon, country sausage and sausage links. Of course there are the usual breakfast staples of biscuits, gravy, grits, eggs, pancakes, etc. There is a wonderful fresh fruit bar (some in our group especially enjoyed the fresh mango). Babies are welcome; there were two in our group. We sometimes enjoy dinner at Bennett's. The BBQ and salad bar are always wonderful, and we never leave less than full-tummied. We have rarely had to wait more than a few minutes, even on holidays or special event weekends. Vacation discount cards or coupons are hono...Read More

Cherokee Grill

Restaurant

Our family had left for home, leaving my husband and me in Gatlinburg for few days to rest and unwind. What a great place to begin our intimate little time together. This was our first trip to Cherokee Grill, but will certainly not be our last. It was a great place for a quiet dinner with outstanding food. My husband had the ribeye, and I had their "Prosperity Steak," which they claim to be their most popular steak. Both entrees were immediately declared delicious by both of us. My steak was served with a Worcestershire butter that certainly added to the steak's great flavor, and both steaks were cooked to perfection as requested. Our server suggested the Cheddar dressing for our house sa...Read More

Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant

Restaurant

Applewood is my family's favorite choice of restaurants in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. Be prepared for a wait, but this can be minimized by avoiding dinner rush hours. This trip we had a late lunch/early dinner at about 2pm and only had to wait approximately 10 minutes to be seated. Once seated, it seems the dinner courses never end. An apple julep starts your dining experience with apple fritters served with delicious apple butter, hot yeast rolls, soup and salad next before you. Try not to eat too many fritters, because dinner is still on the way. The menu includes lots of "Southern favorites". Our family enjoys everything from chicken and dumplings to pork chops and pork tenderl...Read More
