* A 100 Collection™ luxury property

* Accommodates large groups (up to 24 people)

Welcome to Laurel Lodge, a 100 Collection™ luxury vacation rental cabin nestled in the heart of Gatlinburg, TN, near Ober Mountain resort, downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This inviting chalet is perfect for larger groups like family reunions, church retreats, and business meetings. Laurel Lodge offers privacy, unhindered views of Mt. LeConte and the surrounding Smokies, and all the luxury amenities you'll need to enjoy a truly restful vacation with those you love. The home boasts high-end finishes, professionally decorated spaces, and plenty of space for up to 24 guests.

Upon arriving at Laurel Lodge, guests can park and unload in the large gravel lot, which offers flat, easy entry to the middle level of the home. Be sure to lock those car doors before you head inside, because the resident black bears are experts at opening car doors (no joke)!

Once inside, a spacious gathering room welcomes guests, complete with plush furnishings, a cozy stone fireplace, a large TV, and a large billiards area. Need to mix a bit of business with your pleasure? There's a convenient office nook right around the corner just for you. The six bedrooms (four king and two queen) on this level offer Serta Presidential mattresses, flat-screen TVs, and ensuite baths, including one that’s accessible for differently-abled guests. A half bathroom is also available as an added convenience.

At the end of the corridor, a back set of stairs leads to the lower level, which is home to a large theater room. Within its walls, you'll find theater-style seating for 14, oversized plush beanbags, and a 70" SmartTV, along with a shuffleboard table.

When you head back to the front of the house on the main level and ascend the stairway to the top floor, you are greeted by a large open-concept living space. Comfy furnishings surround another large stone fireplace and a large TV, and the space opens directly to the kitching and dining areas. Two 12-person dining tables provide ample space to enjoy meals together, and the kitchen provides plenty of space for multiple chefs. The kitchen is fully equipped to handle preparing meals for 24 people and includes an industrial refrigerator/freezer unit, two stoves, two dishwashers, tons of counter space, and a large-capacity ice maker.

This upper level is also home to six additional ensuite bedrooms (four king and two queen), each boasting a Serta Presidential mattress, a flat-screen TV, and an ensuite bathroom.

Outside, the expansive upper-level deck offers plenty of seating and gorgeous long-range views of the Smoky Mountains. Guests can even catch views of the Ober Mountain tram as it ascends and descends the mountain every 20 minutes or so. Additionally, two gas grills are also available when you feel the urge to cook “al fresco,” which, when you’re in the Smokies, might be the very best way to cook! Just beyond, and surrounded by lush vegetation, an extra-large hot tub (it seats eight!) awaits, providing the perfect spot to soak away the stresses of life.

Guests of this Gatlinburg chalet rental have access to three clubhouses, the closest to Laurel Lodge being the S. Baden Clubhouse, which has a large outdoor pool, changing rooms/showers, shuffleboard, horseshoes, a playground, tennis courts, a gym, and a game room with billiards, ping pong, foosball, checkers/chess, and video games.

One grill was not working, which I know you all tried to fix that day, and we had an issue with the gas tanks once we started to grill Friday night. You all responded quickly to my voice messages and sent someone with gas within 30 minutes. Thanks so much for going above and beyond!

Highly Recommended!
Our church retreat has been at Laurel Lodge since 2007 and we could not ask for any better service. Any problems we have had, which is very few in all these years, has been taken care of immediately. Our entire group would highly recommend Mtn Laurel Chalets. Thank you for your great customer service.

Like having a small hotel just for us!
Our group of 22 adults loved Laurel Lodge! It is so rare to find a lodge with 12 bedrooms, each with a private bath, and a queen or king bed. It was like having a small hotel just for us! The best part was the very large kitchen, dining area and deck that gave us lots of space to spend time together. Plus, it was immaculately clean and very well appointed. Do pay attention to the warnings about bears! We spotted a few, but they did not bother us. One couple forgot to lock their car and found bear foot prints inside it! Fortunately, the car was not damaged. The only negative comment from anyone was about the road leading to the lodge. If you are accustomed to mountain roads it really isn't so bad, but be aware that Holly Branch Drive is only wide enough for one car, so if you encounter a vehicle coming the other way, someone will have to back up. The distance is not long, so that's a minor inconvenience. Many thanks to Pam and the entire staff for helping us plan a memorable vacation!

Our group may make this a yearly trip!
Our group of 20 had a fabulous stay at Laurel Lodge!! The layout and size of the house were perfect! The kitchen was amazing!! So well stocked with everything we needed!! Our group loved sitting on the deck, enjoying beverages and catching up! The view was just beautiful. The Adirondack rocking chairs on the deck were perfect! Our only complaint was that there were NOT ENOUGH of them. More chairs are needed on the deck. Also, it would be nice to have more sets of towels and more toilet paper. But overall we LOVED our stay at Laurel Lodge and would highly recommend it!! Our group may make this a yearly trip!!

This house was awesome! It was perfect for our group of 23 adults. We loved the kitchen (very well stocked), the deck and common areas. One suggestion is to have more chairs for the deck for big groups. We are considering this house again for our next reunion!

Great experience for our family weekend
Great experience for our family weekend! Everyone was helpful and responsive. Just a couple of suggestions on the property:1. The left oven didn’t seem to heat/cook very well. Right one was much better. 2. The knives needed to be sharpened. 3. More trash bags and dishwasher soap should be left initially for such a large unit. We’ll definitely consider coming back!

Mountain rental
We all 21 members loved our mountain vacation. We loved everything about it even the baby bears who were entertaining. The house was large, beautiful bedrooms with baths, an enormous kitchen and two dining tables to seat all members of our family reunion.
Helen G. - Posted: 8/3/2022
The bears certainly have an established trail through this large property. It's always a good idea to look outside before stepping out, especially at dawn or dusk. The bears are used to seeing humans, but please never approach them as they are still wild animals. We are glad you found Laurel Lodge spacious and perfect for your family. We look forward to seeing you in the mountains again soon.

Excellent House For Family Gathering
This is our second time renting this home for a family reunion. The setup and condition of the house are perfect for our family. It has been renovated since we last visited. The kitchen setup is perfect with double ovens/cooktops/dishwashers/coffee makers/trash cans and plenty of cookware, utensils, and cups. The expanded deck is really nice but we did wish there were a few more chairs on the deck. The kids loved the theater room, the internet was fast, and the TVs had cable plus smart capabilities for streaming. With the pool table and provided games we could have spent the whole time in the house and been very happy. We were happy to find the grills are now up on the deck (for bear safety) and we were supplied with ample propane for our stay. Everyone at Mountain Laurel Chalets was wonderful to work with and I would happily rent from them again as they made the entire rental experience easy and were all so nice. The only thing that would prevent us from renting this house again is that the bears are very aggressive about trying to get food from cars and have learned to come by regularly to check if cars are open and also would not leave us alone while we were trying to pack up and leave. I really think the owners should add more substantial fencing around the parking area and also work with the wildlife agency to figure out how to keep the bears off the property. It is clear they know what to do to get what they want (people food) and are willing to be pretty aggressive to get it.

Yankee invasion
This 12 BR lodge served our extended family of 19 very well. The lodge was a beautiful property. We saw black bear every day we were there, including one on the top deck. One car was broken into by a bear. The only down side was that the ice maker broke mid way thru our stay and was not repaired. We had 4 days without ice.

It is great to know that you all loved your stay at Laurel Lodge! It is a fantastic chalet for people to spend quality time together.

Furniture is too big for rooms Hard to move around in dining area. Rug in bedroom and washing machine need cleaning Recommend a microwave oven in kitchenette on main lever
Hit knee several times trying to get between bed and dresser Very difficult to find chalet at night and road is too narrow for two cars to pass The chalet was fully equipped with everything one could need.(even board games) Maintenance quickly responded The view was spectacular Enjoyed the layout with various areas for different activities

Laurel Lodge Review 6/10 - 6/14
Overall the cabin was lovely - I love the renovations (I am a previous visitor) the theatre room addition is great but the seats were nasty and had hair everywhere. We bought lint rollers but that didn't work out well so we didn't utilize that room which was a disappointment (NBA playoffs) The tv in the last bedroom on the left upstairs picture and volume was sporadic the whole visit and couldn't be watched. If you open the door to the fridge upstairs there is a loud popping sound. Other than this the rental was great. Loved the space in the kitchen.

2022 Family & Friends Vacation
Cons: Your company advertised 6 Kings; 6 Queens. There were 5 Kings and 7 Queens ��My guests who had to sleep in the Queen were angry because of this.
The bears were too aggressive for people; someone is bound to get seriously injured or worse
The kitchen refrigerator leaked and Beeped intermittently the entire stay; water was everywhere. Maintenance came a couple times.
The vent in the floor between kitchen and Family room became a Trip Hazard
Please advise people Before they come that large vehicles/buses cannot make it up the mountains

Pros: The Lodge is Beautiful

It accommodates a large gathering beautifully

Great Place
We had a group of 20 that stayed for the second time at this particular rental. There were only a few things that we wish were different. The parking is definitely a tight fit - the fewer and "smaller"" cars the better. We only had two towels per room - that meant we had to either wash or go back to the office to get more. We booked for four nights so that should have been taken into consideration. The cabin was very clean and nicely decorated. Lots of room on the decks as well. "

Our group has been coming to Gatlinburg since the mid 80’s. Mountain Laurel Chalets has been wonderful to work with throughout.
Laurel Lodge is perfect for our group. Everyone has their own bedroom and bathroom. There are plenty of common spaces for playing games, watching movies, and relaxing. View from the porch is amazing.
This year we were lucky enough to have 70 degree weather one day and snow the next. How amazing. We made many wonderful memories and plan to be back.

This beautiful chalet is the nicest one that my family has ever enjoyed in the Smokies. It is extremely well appointed with all amenities you need for a very comfortable vacation. For example, the kitchen is outfitted with an amazing set of dinnerware and every piece of the set has a clearly labeled spot on the shelving. Laurel Lodge is just a fine chalet served by a great company.

Family Christmas Weekend
Our family loved Laurel Lodge! Cozy, beautifully decorated, Christmas tree, wonderful deck and view, impressively well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and linens. Loved the hot tub!

A note to maintenance: the turntable in the microwave is not operating so you have to stop and start several times/rotate your dish to get even heating in the microwave.

A suggestion for the owners: somewhere on the ground level, either along the entry way hall or nearby inside the downstairs living area, a row of coat hooks would be fantastic.
Lesli D. - Posted: 12/17/2021
So glad you had a great stay and your suggestion of a coat rack and hooks is fantastic. We will pass that on to the owners. Hope to see you again soon!

We've been coming to Laurel Lodge since 2007 for our church retreat and as always, everything was great. The property management staff were very nice and super helpful. Anything we needed they had it covered in minutes. We are already booked for 2022 and we are all excited to be going back another year. Laurel Lodge is the absolute best place to stay in Gatlinburg for a large group...12 bedrooms with a private bath for each room is hard to find. The house is always so clean and has had a beautiful upgrade...especially the kitchen. Cannot say enough of good things about this house and the people who manage it.

Family Reunion
Laurel Lodge was a great place to have our family reunion. We traveled from New York, Virginia, North Carolina, Texas, and Florida. We took advantage of everything the area had to offer, but the best memories will be from time spent in Laurel Lodge. We reminisced and laughed for hours in the kitchen / dining / living area and soaked up the great weather and views from the deck. We try to get together every 2 - 3 years in a different location, but Laurel Lodge may be our first repeat location. Mount Laurel Chalets made sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. Quick response whenever I contacted them thru the mobile app when in need of trash pick up or household supplies. Hope to be back - Jim P.

Laurel Lodge is perfect for family reunion
Our group recently stayed in Laurel Lodge, and we were very pleased with the experience. The set up was perfect for our family reunion, as families with young kids could stay in the lower level away from the noise. Very large kitchen and nice amenities. We even saw three bears from the safety of our balcony!

We are so glad that you were able to use Laurel Lodge for your family reunion! Family matters to us here at Mountain Laurel, so we are so glad that you all were able to spend some quality time together. It is the perfect chalet for large groups, and everyone is still able to have enough space. We would absolutely love to have you all back again!

New Furniture an Issue
We have rented this cabin several times over the last several Memorial Day weekends. It provides a great space for our large family reunion. And we appreciate the great updates that have been made over the last couple of years. However on this trip we found new beds and tables in the large living area. While the tables looked great, they are large and bulky with heavy chairs. It's wonderful for seating our large group. But the chairs are so bulky that it makes navigation through the space to the kitchen area a little tight. But this is not as bad as the beds. Huge massive head and foot boards look great for a cabin in the mountains. However these beds made it very tight moving around in the bedrooms. Only about 12 inches between the beds and the dressers to move around to get in the far side of the beds and to the bathrooms. We love this large cabin and will continue to rent it for our family reunions. But just wanted someone to know about this issue.

Women's Retreat Treat
This chalet had everything we needed. Nice decor, well stocked kitchen. I loved the theater room. Did I mention the great view. And no visit to the mountains would be complete without receiving a visit from several bears. The only issue was the narrow one way road to access the chalet. You need great driving skills to drive a 15 passenger van around several tight curves.

Our Winter Home never Disappoints!
We love Laurel Lodge and Mountain Laurel Chalets. We have been coming to Gatlinburg for 24 years and most of them have been with Mountain Laurel Chalets and the years we did not stay with them, we wished we had. Every year we come back to the lodge to see something new they have done to improve on an experience that we thought could not be improved on. The new kitchen design is amazing. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. The downstairs game area and theatre room gave us hours of entertainment. And the deck on the back - we love it! It does not matter what the temp is outside, it is a great place for coffee or wine. To be able to sit, relax and unwind. Laurel Lodge is our family's 3 day winter home every year and Mountain Laurel Chalets makes it amazing. We can't wait to come back!!

Great space and view
The road to the lodge is hard to handle for those not used to mountain roads but I found it just fine. The view from the back deck was gorgeous. Quiet area and peaceful. The space was Great! We had a Very large family group and everyone was comfortably accommodated. The place was clean. We lacked supplies and since our stay was over a holiday we had to go buy our own paper towels, garbage bags. It was impossible getting responses from management. We had a few things broken and a bathroom door locked, even the security alarm was NONSTOP beeping the entire trip. They randomly sent a maintenance guy over to fix a few things but I never heard from anyone and the alarm system beeping was for all 4 days all day and night long. We even thought there was a problem with an ice machine and not wanting to have anything go wrong with the property I put in a request for that as well- never heard anything at all back from management. No communication from management and lack of basic garbage bag supplies was not enjoyable, the alarm system beeping nonstop was very annoying.

Thanks for the review and we appreciate the feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the chalet and regret you had issues with the alarm. We are trying to determine what the problem could have been to remedy the situation, but cannot duplicate the problem. In regards to restocking disposables in the cabin, you should have received an email a few days prior to your arrival outlining our COVID policy that explains our office is closed to the public, therefore, we are asking our guests to bring extra provisions such as paper products and garbage bags. We don't like it either, but the safety of our guests and staff is our highest priority. Once the virus is under control, we will rejoice in reopening our office and welcoming our guests properly. We hope you will come back and see us then.

Pre-Christmas Trip
Laurel Lodge was awesome! Space for the entire family - everyone had their own room! Large deck with grills, jacuzzi and a beautiful view of the mountains. Kitchen was huge...nobody was ever in anybody's way.....and the downstairs theatre was great, especially for the SEC championship football game! We even saw a bear our last night...when they say make sure your car doors are locked - they ain't kidding! We did have a minor issue with wifi - which was quickly handled and there were a few rooms where the TV didn't work properly...but that is something easily fixed as well. We had a great time and my family already wants to book it again next year!

We love providing excellent service! There have been many incidents of bears in vehicles at Laurel Lodge and our maintenance and housekeeping crews have had that happen a few times. You gave very good advice, make sure your car doors stay locked, even if you are just going in and out! We hope to see you again soon in the mountains.

October 17-19 2020 Review
The cabin was beautiful, however we had a few issues. When we arrived for check in , maintenance was still bringing in a dining table and our group was not able to fully check in until about 4pm. which caused issues in our schedule. The cable and TV connections in 3 bedrooms were not working, the shower curtain liners in a majority of the rooms were filthy and a few guests had to use showers in other rooms. When we called to replace the curtains, we appreciated the prompt response but the when thy came to change the curtains it was in the middle of our group session and it disturbed the flow, and the curtains that were brought to replace didn't fit the length of the shower. I called management and I spoke to someone twice to let them know of the issues and I was told that I would receive a credit for our issues, however no one has reached back out to me.
Morgan W. - Posted: 9/17/2020
Thank you for your comments and concerns. We are sorry that the truck delivering the new dining room tables was delayed due to access to the cabin. We were happy to let your group into Laurel Lodge at 2:00 pm as you had already unloaded all of your groceries on the front porch. We were so concerned that the bears would want to enjoy your food and that would have been a disaster. We usually do not allow entrance to the cabin until 3pm and in this case, to save your food and provide for your safety we let you access the Lodge at 2pm. We had planned a delivery of new dining room tables on this day at 1:00 pm but the truck was delayed until 3:30 which prevented your other guests from accessing the Lodge until 4:00 pm. We are so sorry for this delay and did everything we could to encourage the delivery guys to speed up their service. The shower curtains needed to be changed and we are glad we were able to deliver those promptly when requested. Covid-19 has had it's challenges, but we are thankful that we have been for the most part been able to get people checked in at the same time of 3pm when other companies are not guaranteeing check in until 5pm or 6pm.

Perfect Place for our Meeting!
I chose this beautiful setting for our 14-member sales team’s Fall regional meeting. It was a great choice! The Lodge is very spacious and well furnished. The huge kitchen had everything we needed! We used the theater room for our Webinars where the on-line presenters were displayed on the extra large screen. When we would return from evening activities we spent hours in conversation on the decks. We were fortunate to see a mother black bear and her three cubs frolicking in the nearby woods! The sales team said they want to return for our next meeting.

Couples' Retreat
Spent 3 days with 12 couples at Laurel Lodge. This is our second time at this location and the improvements that were made to the cabin made this visit A++. The new theater room was great (it would be nice if it had surround sound). The extended deck was a great hangout space for our large group. The accommodations didn't disappoint. All the couples really enjoyed their stay. Also had a bear to show up two days in a row, once in the parking lot and on the deck. We will definitely be back. The only complaint I have is the ice maker in the kitchen froze up and didn't produce any ice.

It Has It All
We love Laurel Lodge. We have been coming to Sevier County for the past 25 years for an adult family weekend getaway. Sometimes as with most families as we get older we move to other areas and get caught up in our own family routines. Laurel Lodge gives us an opportunity to come together as people, not moms or dads and enjoy each other. The lodge offers enough open space that we can enjoy each other and play games, eat as a group and sit and enjoy the fire and view. Plus the bedrooms are large enough that you if want some alone time, you have a place you can feel comfortable. Most of all we love the kitchen, with a lodge of 12 bedrooms you need to feed a lot of people and this lodge has planned for that; an ice maker, 8 stove top eyes, 2 ovens, 2 microwaves, a large refrigerator and separate large freezer it has it all. Can't wait to come back.

Perfect Rereat for a group of Christian college students
We rented Laurel Lodge, and the one next door (Camelot) for a retreat and can we say it was perfect. The accommodations were so nicely decorated, comfortable and exceeded our expectations. The staff at the office were friendly and treated us like family. It was so close to downtown and the area wasn't effected by the wild fires at all. There were some areas we could drive by where we saw damage but most of that was out of the way from where Laurel Lodge was. Plenty of parking and the beds were awesome. We are already planning for next year. Hiking as a group in the park was a highlight as well as worshiping together in the large lodge area of this cabin.

Very Nice 12 BR
The property was surprisingly nice. My family had stayed in the very same unit 15 yrs ago so I was thinking it would be extremely old and outdated however the owners have done an excellent job updating the property. We enjoyed the chalet and it's amenities. Each room having their separate bath was awesome. The only thing I'd recommend them to change well correct is the driveway. The gravel has washed away terribly and there are 2 bad ditches in middle of drive. Making it difficult and unsafe to manevour in and out of the drive. This SHOULD BE FIXED IMMEDIATELY! We had 1 vehicle to become stuck with only 2 tires on the ground. The other 2 just spinning in air from washed away gravel. It was a scary situation but we prevailed. But it should be filled in or paved immediately as it is only going to get worse as the weather gets cold or raining...

We had 1 vehicle to become stuck with only 2 tires on the ground. The other 2 just spinning in air from washed away gravel. It was a scary situation but we prevailed. But it should be filled in or paved immediately as it is only going to get worse as the weather gets cold or raining...

Thanks for the comments. Gravel has been put down in the driveway and it is fine now. The homeowner is also working on the exterior landscape, so you will have a nice surprise next time you visit!

An Awesome Mountaintop Experience
The week-end was a good experience. The response from the staff was unbelievable - quick, pleasant and efficient. We have stayed each year from the past 20+. Suggestion - make sure there are enough mugs etc to serve 24. The breaker was not strong enough for stoves, griddles etc. Place mats were missing.

Marriage Retreat
Our church reserved this cabin for our Annual Marriage Retreat. There were 11 couples that attended. We had plenty of room and supplies for everyone. The cabin was lovely and just perfect for us. We will definitely consider this cabin again next year.

Great Place to Stay!
This was the perfect place for my extended family of 22 people. We were all very comfortable since there were plenty of beds, showers and seating. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, bowls, silverware, pots, pans, etc. We loved the separate ice machine! This was a beautiful location and we had no problems finding the pools which the kids loved. If you need a place to stay for a lot of people, I highly recommend Laurel Lodge.

Great for Family Reunions!
The house was the perfect spot for a big family reunion. It's proximity to both the national park and the town of Gatlinburg made it worth every penny. We did have a bear visit during dinner while we were grilling and be careful of the road leading up to the house- super steep and not for the faint of heart. The view was fantastic and the staff was extremely helpful with everything we needed. The pictures really don't show how large the house really is! The group was sad that recycling wasn't an option. Overall- great stay- highly recommended!

The Ultimate Plave for Large gatherings!
I looked all over the Smokey Mountain area for a place with 12 individual rooms. You will do no better than the Mountain Laurel Chalet. Close to downtown G-burg, tastefully decorated, everything you'll need for a large gathering.

Housing a large group is one of the reasons that we love Laurel Lodge also. We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay and noticed the decorating. We look forward to seeing you all at your next stay.

Great Easter Trip
This property was perfect for our large group. The location provided easy access to the national Park.The house was nicely equipped with two stoves and dishwashers. It was also nice that each bedroom had its own bathroom.

Laurel Lodge
We had a good time on our trip to Gatlinburg and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Laurel Lodge. Property is well kept and clean. The office staff and maintenance men were very friendly and helpful. The lodges were closer together than we expected, but privacy and noise did not become an issue. Our only complaint with this rental is we chose this particular unit because it was supposed to be handicap accessible. The shower did not have a safety rail inside the stall or a hand held shower head. If these two items were taken care of we would definitely rent this lodge again.

Thanksgiving at Laurel Lodge
We loved the layout and location of Laurel Lodge. We appreciated being able to get additional linens and towels in the office if needed. The lodge had everything we needed and kitchen was well- stocked with everything needed for a Thanksgiving feast except lids did not match pots. Rooms and barhs were clean but under kitchen sink was rather scary and not clean.

Bathrooms were clean and hot tub nice. Incredible view and decks and we really enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch.

The negatives were that you were closed on Thanksgiving Day. Since we arrived just the afternoon before we didn't realize we needed a couple more towels. Also no remote for TV in game room on BIG football day. We finally found another from another room to work. Maybe you could just open for an hour letting everyone know as they check in. The free bundle of wood was nice as was having additional available. The largest negative were the mattresses were generally uncomfortable and the one on first room on right on top floor had a huge hump in the middle.

Overall, Laurel Lodge gave us a memorable and enjoyable family vacation. Will look forward to a future stay there!

Laurel Lodge Annual Trip
Our group has been staying in Laurel Lodge every November since it was built. We stayed in Smoky's Paradise before that and this group has been renting from Mountain Laurel Chalets annually since 1984. We love this chalet with a bathroom in every bedroom and are very pleased with the accommodations. However, we do have some feedback. There were not enough plates for the 21 of us to eat on, several of the glasses are chipped/broken and need to be removed/replaced, there was not a tub stopper in Evening Shadow bathroom downstairs(and I'm a bath person), we love the icemaker but it can't keep up with our needs. Also, a couple of the TV's did not work so replacement cables were required, which were installed in a timely manner. We understand this is out of your hands due to an ordinance but we would love to have the grills back on the deck. These are minor but we wanted you to know. Love this place and will be back again next year!

Excellent for Meeting Purposes
We rented this particular cabin because we were having a division meeting with 16 people. Since this had 12 BR's each with it's own bath (which was important) we only needed a 4 BR cabin to top it off. It worked perfectly for our meeting and was clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. The under counter ice maker was an extra special touch with that many people. Just far enough up the mountain to be in the woods (along with a resident bear), but close enough to town to run in for supplies.

We come every year with a group of 12 - 14 women and thoroughly enjoy all the lodge has to offer! We love the private rooms with attached baths, hot tub, spacious kitchen with two stoves AND dishwashers, outdoor porches with rocking chairs, wonderful gathering places on both floors and the convenient location to both the town of Gatlinburg and the park for hiking.

The Big Easy!
Where can you find a place this big and that close to downtown. If you have a large group booking the Laurel Lodge is a "no brainer"". It's the ""Big Easy"" decision you will never regret."

Wonderful Couples Cabin
We had 12 couples plus for the weekend. The rooms are perfect and the chalet had all the kitchen gadgets you could hope for. The large capacity ice maker did not seem to be working although it had ice in it when we arrived. Fortunately we had brough bagged ice and there is a separate freezer that was able to accomodate the ice. Everything worked out perfect and we woke up Saturday morning to snow that was gone by lunch time but was beautiful.

Great place to stay!
I thoroughly enjoyed taking my church youth group to this cabin. Everything was clean and the lodge itself is beautiful. My only concern is the location was very difficult to get to with our large vehicles, and could have been problematic if there had been snow or icy weather.

Nice Family Lodge
This was a great space for our family of 22. Common areas were large and kitchen had plenty of plates and glasses. There was a little issue with it not being ready by 3 p.m. but housekeeping really stepped up and we were fully in by 4 pm. The only bad thing about the rental was the poor condition of the mattresses. When either my spouse or I moved, the whole bed moved. Also, you should remember to bring Kleenex and salt and pepper. Those things were not on the recommended items to bring list sent by the rental company.

Great Family Reunion
The entire family (all 27 of us) found Laurel Lodge a perfect setting for a family reunion. Everything was in perfect shape, all the rooms were neat and clean, and the kitchen/dining room was convenient and well equipped. We could not have found a better place.

Awesome getaway for all!
During our family reunion, this property met the needs of all of our 26 members. This residence made it possible for all to meet and dine together, yet break away for leisure or entertainment. The bedrooms provided privacy and the bathrooms were a much added asset during our stay.
The concern for a grill to feed everyone was found to be adequate as we used the 3 charcoal grills provided and found useful.
We would definitely recommend this vacation facility to anyone wishing to entertain a big group under a single roof. We look forward to using this unit on the future.
