Spring will be here before you know it, which means it’s almost time for that wonderful week when kids are out of school and you can also take a much-needed vacation! Instead of a typical beach trip, why not mix things up this year and explore the wonders of the Smoky Mountains? Here are 4 reasons to stay in our Gatlinburg hotel for your Spring Break vacation:

1. Warmer Weather for Hiking

When you stay at our hotel in Gatlinburg, you will be just 1 mile from the entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, making it easy to plan a day of hiking with your family. There are a variety of excellent kid-friendly hiking trails throughout the park, including the 2.3-mile roundtrip hike to Laurel Falls. While there are many highlights of this hike, the main prize is getting to see the 80-foot waterfall!

2. Great Lodging Options

At our Gatlinburg hotel, we have the perfect lodging accommodations for your family trip to the Smokies. Our Two Room Family Suite features two separate bedrooms so everyone can have their own sleeping space. Parents will enjoy the comfort of their own bedroom while the kids will have a blast in their own room which has a bunk bed and a flat-screen television. This room also features a large living area where you can enjoy a family movie night or a board game with the kids. Our Two Room Family Suite also features two bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and two private balconies where you can sit outside!

Before you head out to begin your day of sightseeing, be sure to enjoy our deluxe continental breakfast that is served each morning from 7 AM until 10 AM. We also have a beautiful lobby where your family can relax while you wait on the Gatlinburg Trolley to pick you up right outside our main entrance to take you to all your favorite attractions in the Smokies.

4. Incredible Location

One of the best things about our Gatlinburg hotel is its location. We are located right on the Parkway so you are within walking distance of all sorts of wonderful attractions and restaurants. During your stay with us, you will want to check out Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, which is conveniently located right across the street from our hotel. Your kids will love getting to explore all the unique galleries to learn about the incredible creatures of the sea. There are plenty of hands-on activities as well, including the Touch a Ray Bay where you can touch the silky smooth skin of a stingray!
