Top 5 Reasons to Reserve a Tennessee Mountain Lodge


1. Room to Gather

A vacation lodge is a cabin all grown up and ready to host larger families or groups. Look for gathering spaces that accommodate everyone comfortably, whether you’re dining, playing games, or watching a movie marathon. Ample seating indoors and outdoors is a must for relaxing #LodgeLife. So are dining areas where you won’t feel crowded.

Keaton’s Firefly Meadow is a lodge for the biggest crew, with two spacious living rooms, a large game room with a huge sectional sofa, and bedrooms with their own sitting areas. This cabin sleeps up to 34 guests with gathering spaces galore.


2. Space for Privacy

Everyone needs a little downtime, especially when you’re vacationing with a group. Recharge in a lodge where bedrooms and sleeping spaces give everyone privacy. Large properties offer en suite bathrooms, double sinks, half baths, and other features ensuring you’re not under each others’ feet!


3. Terrific Amenities

Look for extras that only a large property can offer. Some lodge cabins have in-cabin or outdoor pools. Search for outdoor fire pits, bubbling hot tubs, and picnic tables. 

Game rooms make a great retreat for kids and adults alike. Two rec rooms make Wildbriar Inn a truly entertaining lodge! This 24-guest lodge has two pool tables, air hockey, foosball, couches, and flat-screen TVs in both rooms – there’s even a felt-topped blackjack table to keep you playing for hours. 


4. Ideal Locations 

When you hear “lodge,” does your brain put “ski” in front of it? Stay at Chalet a Le Conte and watch the trams heading up to Ober Gatlinburg ski resort going right past your windows! Or book A Bear Creek, a log-built lodge near Ober, where up to 18 of you can bunk down in comfort after spending days on the slopes. 

Lodges let you host a group away from the hustle of town, yet close enough to enjoy attractions, restaurants, shows, and shopping. Look at The Summit of Locust Ridge, with easy access to Dollywood, animal parks, and zipline adventures, plus total privacy in a three-cabin lodge community!
