Welcome to Wood Fern Lodge, an exceptional 100 Collection™ luxury vacation rental property in the heart of Gatlinburg, TN. This remarkable three-bedroom haven comfortably accommodates up to ten guests, offering a blend of exquisite craftsmanship, total seclusion, and breathtaking vistas that are sure to captivate even the most discerning travelers, including a picture-perfect view of Mt. LeConte.

Nestled within Norton Creek Estates, an exclusive 3,000-acre neighborhood, the journey to Wood Fern Lodge evokes the charm of Gatlinburg's past. Embrace tranquility and immerse yourself in the natural beauty that surrounds you, providing a welcome escape from the daily hustle and bustle.

Upon entering this expansive property, guests will be greeted by the grandeur of two-story ceilings and a majestic floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace with gas logs. The great room exudes warmth, creating a spacious and inviting open-concept living space. Adjacent to the gathering area, a large dining table offers panoramic views of the Smoky Mountains, providing the perfect place to enjoy meals with those you love.

The chef's kitchen, seamlessly integrated into the great room, is a culinary delight, equipped with high-end appliances, a professional gas range, expansive stone countertops, and ample space for multiple chefs. To start your mornings, a Nespresso coffee machine awaits. Fully appointed, the kitchen eliminates the need for guests to bring anything but their groceries. A convenient kitchen workspace allows you to attend to emails or tackle your to-do list while enjoying the peacefulness of the Smokies.

Just off the great room, a generously-sized primary king suite awaits, complete with a gas-log fireplace, large Smart TV, oversized walk-in closet, and a luxurious bathroom featuring both a soaking tub and a walk-in shower. Journeying in the opposite direction on the main floor leads to a spacious laundry/mud room, available for guest use.

Just beyond is a two-car garage that doubles as a game area. Enjoy a game of ping-pong on one end of the garage and park on the other! A treadmill is also available, as is a cornhole yard game for when you feel the urge for a little friendly competition. For electric vehicle owners, a dedicated EV J1772 Destination charging station is provided inside the garage.

The main level deck wraps around the back of the home, offering a haven for every guest. Delight in an unusual swinging "bed", located next to an outdoor wood-burning fireplace, beckons for leisurely reading, and ample seating provides a perfect spot to soak in the views. A separate screened-in turret with rocking chairs ensures relaxation, rain or shine.

Venturing upstairs to the loft, discover a Peleton exercise bike, offering complimentary 30-minute workouts (or the option to log in with your own credentials). The loft is also home to a cocktail arcade gaming console and a table for playing games and building puzzles.

Descending to the property’s lower level, you’ll find a second spacious gathering area with a TV and gas fireplace. Adjacent to this space, a sunroom with an indoor hot tub provides stunning views and is the perfect place to sooth your tired muscles after a long day spent out and about.

The lower level is home to two king suites, each featuring a luxury mattress, a Smart TV, and easy access to bathrooms. Additionally, a basement bunk room with a queen Murphy bed and twin Murphy bunk beds accommodates extra guests.

The lower level patio offers ground-level access to the backyard and the fire pit area, creating a perfect setting for nights under the stars roasting s'mores. Outside on the terrace, a gas grill awaits the barbecue enthusiasts.

Wood Fern Lodge stands as a testament to luxury, comfort, and the unparalleled beauty of the Smoky Mountains. With its thoughtful amenities, this luxury vacation rental promises an unforgettable escape, inviting guests to create cherished memories amidst the natural splendor of the Smokies.

Exceeded all expectations!
Fern Lodge exceeded all expectations. The property was secluded, exceptionally maintained and offered many unexpected amenities. Morning coffee on the screened in patio while listening to the sounds of nature was so peaceful. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with high end appliances and stocked with every possible gadget. The mattresses were exquisite. While not an issue for our SUV, the drive up to the house was very steep however, worth the views.

This home was BEAUTIFUL - had everything we needed!
The home was beautiful and had everything we needed. The location is one of our favorites; we've always liked the Norton's Creek area. Our only regret is that our vacation was just too short. We hope to return in the coming months to book a longer stay.

We loved this cabin!
We loved this cabin! Even with the power outage we had the best time, as well as the rental company staying in touch with us about the outage. We will be back!

We Will Definitely Be Back!
Beautiful views, newly renovated cabin, great outdoor space. Short drive into Gatlinburg, about 10 minutes. Technology worked well, not that you need it or want it! We will definitely be back!

More than we could have ever asked for!
The Wood Fern Lodge was more than we could have ever asked for. It was beautiful, secluded, and felt so homey! Thank you for everything. We can’t wait to come back!

Everything was perfect!
This house was simply breathtaking. Easy check-in and check-out, fully equipped with everything we could possibly need, and is secluded yet so close to all of the attractions we wanted to enjoy in Pigeon Forge. I had some of the best sleep I’ve had in a long time here. Thank you for helping make our family vacation so much more enjoyable! We will definitely be back!!!

Very enjoyable stay
Relaxing home with everything you could need. Very enjoyable stay. All the amenities of home. Clean, comfortable beds, plenty of room for alone time. Seen several black bears walking past while lounging on the deck. We rented this property because when looking at the pictures it had a treadmill. When we arrived it wasn’t there. Made a call and they brought the next morning. My daughter is a track long distance runner and it was very important for us. When we come back we will be staying there again.

Everything was great!
Everything was great! Just a couple of minor items: the A/C in the laundry room was on full go the entire stay (no separate thermostat to control). Also, a sheet on site describing use of TV, whole house sound system, possible WiFi access codes, fireplace controls, etc. would be helpful.

Simply THE BEST!
We stayed with friends at the Woodfern Lodge and have never enjoyed a mountain getaway more! The home was just that - a home…with everything you could want. It had multiple gorgeous, comfortable living spaces for time to gather as well as be alone; the Mountain View was spectacular from everywhere; the kitchen was extremely spacious and exceedingly equipped; the fireplaces (both indoor and outdoor) made for beautiful, cozy gatherings; the bedrooms were very comfortable and private. My favorite spaces were the screened porch and the deck! Because of the privacy of the location and the top tier accommodations, Woodfern Lodge exceeded even my lofty expectations. I can’t wait to return!

A perfect host and a perfect home
Cannot say enough about the MLC staff and this cabin - simply amazing!! Wish you wouldn't share so we can keep it as our own family secret!! Thanks for all the special memories! Our son got engaged and Mountain Laurel dropped off a gift to celebrate the occasion. The location is so private--we felt like this is what Gatlinburg used to be like before all the attractions. I would say it was nice to be close enough to everything but completely secluded back at Wood Fern Lodge. The home is spacious and stunning. We will be back!!
Stephanie Spahn - Posted: 12/26/2022
Thank you Stephanie for being our first guest at Wood Fern Lodge. We are so glad you have a great New Year's Eve celebrating at this luxury home. The weather proved to be challenging but we are glad we were on site to handle your concerns. And congratulations on your son's engagement! Hope to see you again soon.

Perfect Getaway
Wood Fern Lodge was the perfect getaway! My husband and I joined another couple in Gatlinburg and stayed in this 100 Collection property, and never want to stay anywhere else! It was secluded, spacious, with lots of gathering spots to see the mountain views - for time alone or with a group. The main floor's great room was beautiful, the screened-in porch with rockers, the deck with swing and outdoor fireplace, the family room on the lower level, the game area in the loft...we enjoyed it all! The bedrooms were all private and spacious, with adjoining bathrooms but one of my favorite amenities is the fully equipped - large - kitchen. I didn't mind doing dishes looking out the window at Mt. LeConte! Of course, I could also have loaded either of the two dishwashers! Thank you, MLC! Wood Fern Lodge - the PERFECT majestic, private, fun, relaxing, amenity-filled personal resort-away-from-home. Would 100% recommend for an upscale vacation...except when I want to be there! The only thing wrong with Wood Fern Lodge is not staying long enough!
