LeConte and the surrounding Smokies you’ll find anywhere. As part of The Retreat at Deerview Trail, The Lodge is part of a community of six vacation rental cabins that combined can accommodate up to 50 people.

Upon entering The Lodge, guests will be captivated by the incredible mountain view, visible through a large wall of windows which bring a light, airy feel to the space. An open-concept living area features plush furnishings, a large stone gas fireplace, and a large SmartTV. The dining table sits adjacent to the living room, perfect for shared meals and competitive game play.

The sprawling main-level deck boasts comfy furnishings, the perfect spot to sit and take in the epic mountain view. It’s also the perfect spot to keep an eye on those enjoying the hot tub and fire pit in the yard below.

Upstairs, an open loft features a small gathering area with ample seating and another flat-screen SmartTV. Just beyond, two additional king suites and a twin-over-twin bunk room offer accommodations for six people.

Great place. Loved the area. The only issue we had was some of the hot tub jets didn't work but that was not really an issue.

Love the view!
We really enjoyed staying at the Lodge. Love the view and had a visitor (bear) one morning. Some things you might want to know. Overhead stove fan didn't work; both coffee pots worked so we did not open the new one; the stove fan buttons need cleaning (greasy).

Perfect for our 3 generation family reunion. We had 11 adults & 3 young children, and the space and amenities were great for our size group. The views from the Lodge were amazing. We saw bears every day which was exciting for the kids and the adults.

Beautiful and everything we needed!
"This trip was a Small Group couples retreat. We could not have stayed any place better. We all fell in love with The Lodge. It’s beautiful and comfortable and had everything we needed. Our guys cooked breakfast for the group and I think used every appliance in the kitchen. And I cannot forget to mention that view! Just breathtaking! You won’t find a better one anywhere. I cannot say enough good things about The Lodge and about Mountain Laurel Chalets. I recommend them to everyone."

Perfect for groups
My siblings/spouses had a great time staying in The Lodge again this April. It’s a perfect house for groups. However there were a few items that were not completely up to par. We did call guest services because our pool cues were missing their tops/broken and 4 new ones were brought out to the house promptly, thank you. The toaster didn’t function properly (the levers didn’t glide up and down) and the kitchen fuse blew several times when we used the microwave. And, installing hand towel rings/bars close to the bathroom sinks would be a nice touch, especially in the half-bath by the front door so towels don’t have a lay on the counter or potentially fall on the floor. Overall, nice house and attentive guest services.

Breathtaking views
My family and I enjoyed our stay at The Lodge . With that being said the views were breathtaking from every angle. We also had the pleasure of seeing some snow on the mountaintop . I would recommend this location to any and everyone.

Beautiful Home Stunning Views
For a large group (we had 13 including 1 very active toddler) We had ample sleeping and spreading out space. House was beyond our expectations. Trips to Gatlinburg for food and shopping, hiking, The Peddler to celebrate my moms 90th birthday. Many went hiking we found time to fit in Dollywood and Mommy and baby girl went to Dixie Stampede. The views from the deck was like a postcard. Had 2 big bears walk within 10 feet of me while I was standing on the porch. The house was spotless and well decorated. Kitchen supplies were amazing. Toaster was a bit slow and missing a foot but toast was not on top of the list. Seating in the deck was more than enough for our group and the older kids (17-48) loved the pool table. The hot tub was used nightly although we had to chase down the lid when high winds blew it off during the night as well as a few deck pillows��. We had a total of 5 cars and could have parked a few more. Bottom line,The Lodge was the perfect home For our family. And Pam and the rest of the staff at Mountain Laurel are top notch!

Home with a view
Checkin and checkout were so easy! The home has the best view in the smokies. Even after driving to some of the lookouts, our view from the house was better! Saw multiple bears there at the cabin. Clean and perfect for our group of 14.

Did have ti make a run to the store for toilet paper. There was not enough left there on site. Other than that it had everything we needed!!
Wendy T. - Posted: 7/7/2022
We are so glad that your group was able to enjoy your stay at The Lodge! The view is truly unmatched and the property itself is beautiful, definitely one of my favorites! Don't forget you can always come pick up extra items like toilet paper for free at our office anytime we are open from 8-4:30! We hope that you all will come back and stay with us again soon!

Great House, No Amenities
Lovely house, great for a big family trip. We came here after our wedding to spend a few days with family who flew in from other countries. The house and view is beautiful. On our first day, driving to the house, we drove past a black bear rummaging through trash next to a house under construction right down the road from The Lodge. We were safe in our car so it was a great experience, and taught us to be extra careful during our stay.

The house is spacious and very clean. The view from nearly every room in the house was incredible. My only two issues with the house are small and fairly inconsequential:
1. There were absolutely no amenities. In a house rental like this, especially with a kitchen with plenty of cookware, we expected some basic items like coffee. There wasn’t even salt and pepper. We bought food to cook but needed to make a second trip to the grocery store for basics that are usually stocked in such rentals, like salt, pepper, sugar, coffee, shampoo, hand soap, dishwasher detergent, etc.
2. There isn’t a welcome binder/instructions. We got an email with instructions to the management office, where we then got directions to the rental property and check in/out info, but usually there’s some sort of instructional binder in the house. This would have come in handy when we needed to know where to put our trash bags during our stay. Instead I was on a call for a half hour with the management office trying to get this answer, which ended up being incorrect information.

Other than this, our stay was so wonderful. Mountain Laurel Chalets wrote us a special note welcoming us after our wedding, and everyone there is so friendly and kind. We would definitely stay there again!

A dream!
I had the pleasure of staying at The Lodge for my first time visiting Gatlinburg to celebrate my birthday. I am already planning on when I can return because I miss that house! The house was immaculate, the views were breath taking, we had all we needed in the kitchen and more! Check in was very smooth and the house wasn't hard to find on the map. It truly was a dream staying there and I can't wait until the next time!

This is a wonderful property for gathering family together. We had an amazing time. The house is beautiful, cozy and had space plus some for everyone in our party.
This was not the place we rented, but a snow storm knocked out the power and, lucky us, this is where we were upgraded to.
Thank you it was wonderful!!

Christmas in the Lodge Chalet
This was our first Christmas vacation and we had a blast. We spent Christmas in this beautiful chalet. It comfortably fit our family of 11, with space to spread out. There is even a bunk room for kids! The kitchen is well equipped, the decor was beautiful and the views are breathtaking no matter which room you choose. We even saw a bear during our stay. Everything about this chalet was perfect and the staff at Mountain Laurel were all friendly and accommodating. This chalet is very close to downtown Gatlinburg as well. We enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to book it again.

The Lodge is perfection! We have rented with Mountain Laurel for well over ten years, and b/c of availability, originally rented with another company for the first time this year because we booked late. What a mistake. We ran into problem after problem...after problem. We got fortunate, and last minute were able to rent The Lodge for our family of 10, who have been coming to the mountains for years. The customer service and all chalets we have rented have been flawless. This continues with our rental of The Lodge. The view is amazing, the amenities are great, and we all had plenty of room for our 10 and our extended family of 6 who joined us on Thanksgiving Day. We enjoyed the hot tub, the kids loved the yard and we loved the peace of them playing without worry of them being too close to the mountain edge, and the firepit is great. As an added bonus, even with kids getting up early, they stayed upstairs and the people downstairs in the basement could sleep peacefully - this has been harder to find in other cabins. The Lodge is rustic yet modern....a perfect mix that embodies relaxation. Mountain Laurel, thank you for saving this all too important annual extended family vacation! We have already rented for next year...I won't wait to book again!
