Eight Gables Inn is an extraordinary, elegant and charming bed and breakfast located just one mile from Gatlinburg. Encompassed by woods, you feel as if you are millions of miles from anyone!
Our room, The Sunflower Room was beautifully decorated. The light green wallpaper/cream-colored walls blended perfectly with the light sage green carpet to create a light and open feeling. The quilted comforter/pillow shams complimented the room and oh the king size bed . . . with the feather top bedding . . . having once laid on it, you never wanted to get up. Personal belongings could be stowed in the 5-drawer wicker chest. A wicker/wrought iron chair, table and footstool as well as another easy chair and footstool completed the sitting room. A remote controlled tv, complete with cable was provided. Turn down service was provided each night and relaxing music filled the room from the CD player. Two plush white bathrobes hung in the closet and a remote-controlled corner fireplace could provide a warm and cozy atmosphere on a cold winter evening. French doors opened onto a deck with a small wrought iron table and two chairs.
The bathroom was wonderfully huge and was designed with comfort in mind!! The corner shower was large and spacious . . . plenty of room to move about without hitting your elbows on the sides. The corner two-person whirlpool tub provided a much needed night of relaxation by candlelight. Complimentary coffee (regular/decaf), a 4-cup coffee maker and a hair dryer were provided, as was an iron/ironing board. The extra-large bath towels were soft and fluffy . . . as if they were freshly taken from your clothes dryer at home.
The grounds were immaculate with a garden area complete with a center fountain and gazebo. The wrap-around-porch contained large flower boxes overflowing with brightly colored flowers; and the hammock, rocking chairs and swings provided a peaceful way just to kick back and relax.
Included in your room rate are the tempting desserts specially prepared each night from 7:30–10 p.m. in the Main House. The Pantry, located under the stairs in the Main House is filled with snacks and sodas, which you are welcome to help yourself to. Coffee, hot chocolate, cappuccino and espresso are also available.
Twenty rooms are available at Eight Gables Inn ranging in price from $149-$259. Internet specials are available. Special rates are given during January, February and March and other selected weekdays. Honeymoon packages, Romantic and Outdoor Escape Packages are also available.
Children under 10 are not allowed unless prior provisions have been made with the inn.
Eight Gables is non-smoking, with smoking allowed in designated outside areas only.
This inn is definitely an undiscovered jewel. It is so peaceful and relaxing, a place to rejuvenate your soul and spirit and rekindle your love. Every imaginable detail has been carefully planned, even down to the flashlight in the nightstand drawer and the umbrella sitting by the front door.
We loved Eight Gables Inn and think you will also.
