Our property in the Smokies is appropriately named “What A Lodge”. With 3,000 sq feet of subtle grandness your family won’t feel cramped. The massive wood beams and tongue and groove wood throughout is incredible to look at and we’ve decorated using stately themed woodsy furnishings that facilitate that mountain escape feel that we all look for when we go to the Smokies.
Our grand wrap around porch offers several views of the Smokies and our south easterly view is of magnificent Mt. Leconte. Sit at the bar top or pull up one of our rockers and submerge yourself in the sounds of the mountains in our very private setting. If porch swings are your thing we have two that will satisfy that itch. If stairs present an issue for any of your party we have a ramp to provide ease of entrance.
Every lodge has to have a fireplace and What A Lodge has two. Both are floor to ceiling stone fireplaces with gas logs eliminating the need to struggle building a fire. One fireplace is in the living room and helps set the mood for a quiet evening by the fire. The other fireplace is in the grand family/game room with soaring ceilings and mega windows looking out to the mountain range and completed by the ubiquitous lodge deer head.
We have 4 themed king master suites with luxurious king size beds. Choices for your evening accommodations are the Pheasant Room, Pine Cone room, Wild Turkey Room, or the Deer room with its own king size whirlpool path and 4 poster log bed. Each bedroom has a 32” flat panel TV.
For those families that enjoy competing in games of skill we offer a variety of challenges. Pool, 12ft shuffleboard table, Foosball, Chess/Checkers game table, Poker table, and board games galore.
Our upstairs family room is outfitted with a 55” TV with Vizio sound bar and blue ray player to watch your favorite movies.
Our antler chandelier sets the tone in the kitchen/dining room area and our massive dining room table can accommodate a party of 10 comfortably. We’ve outfitted the kitchen to allow the chef in you to create just about anything. If anyone is a grill master we provide a Weber Genesis right off the porch steps from the kitchen. Enjoy your barbeque dinner avoiding the bugs in the screened in porch and soak away your cares in our six person hot tub.
Last but not least is our massive fire pit which sets the stage for storytelling and memory making. We supply the wood and 10 rocking chairs, your family supplies the stories and laughter.
We’re 11 minutes up the mountain from the Parkway in Pigeon Forge and 30 minutes to downtown Gatlinburg. If you haven’t visited “The Island” in Pigeon Forge you’re in for a treat. We like to think of it as a clean updated Gatlinburg. Everything you can do in Gatlinburg is available at “The Island”. We’re 20 minutes to Dollywood theme park which features an Amusement Park, Water Park and live music shows.
We’re confident you’ll think back on your stay at “What A Lodge” with fondness and all other vacation homes will pale in comparison. Our goal is to satisfy you completely and win your business for years to come.
