If you want to experience the serenity and natural beauty of the mountains without being far from restaurants, shops, and attractions, Old Hickory Lodge is for you. The three-story log home, which can sleep up to eighteen people, is located in the quiet, wooded Hemlock Hills community. You can gaze out at trees and the seemingly endless sky from the cabin’s two large decks, yet you’re less than fifteen minutes from downtown Gatlinburg.

With its wood-planked walls, floors, and ceilings, Old Hickory Lodge is rich with traditional charm. But it also offers plenty of modern luxuries. Generously cushioned seating makes the great room an inviting space for watching a favorite show on the 50” flat-screen TV or surfing the web via the free WiFi. In winter the stone-surround fireplace adds a golden warmth that only accentuates the rustic ambiance.

Likewise, the log-style dining table and the kitchen island are a cabin-perfect contrast to the gleaming stainless-steel appliances of the fully equipped kitchen. From the refrigerator/freezer with ice maker to the dishwasher, from the microwave to the blender, Old Hickory Lodge’s kitchen has just about everything you need. The cabin has a park-style charcoal grill outside as well, should you have a hankering for home-cooked barbecue.

The downstairs game room ensures that even if bad weather keeps you all indoors, you won’t be bored. You can shoot pool at the full-size billiard table or watch a movie on an oversize flat-screen TV in the home theater, which has nine cinema-style seats.

And when the weather clears, you’ll definitely want to hang out on Old Hickory Lodge’s two expansive covered decks. Kick back on one of the numerous rockers and listen to songbirds in the morning; enjoy nibbles and cocktails at the bistro table as the sun sets behind the trees. Best of all, luxuriate in the lower deck’s hot tub. For a memory you’ll long cherish, take a soak at night, while the moonlight casts its silver glow and the hooting of owls punctuates the serenade of the whip-poor-wills.

To get the most of a vacation, being well rested is a must. That’s easy at Old Hickory Lodge. The downstairs and the main floor each have a relaxing bedroom with a log-frame queen-size bed, a wall-mounted flat-screen TV, plenty of storage, and a ceiling fan to help lull you to sleep. The other two bedrooms are on the top floor. With its king-size bed, fireplace, private bathroom, and flat-screen TV, the spacious primary suite practically guarantees sweet dreams. The fourth bedroom can sleep up to eight people in its pair of queen-size bunk beds. It’s a perfect room for the kids in your group to make their own; it even has its own bathroom and flat-screen TV.

Have additional guests? The sofas in the great room and the game room each convert into queen-size beds. And as well as four bedrooms, Old Hickory Lodge has four full bathrooms: the two en-suite bathrooms on the top floor, another on the main floor, and the fourth downstairs.

While Old Hickory Lodge has just about everything you need for a laid-back, fun-filled stay with family and friends, you’ll definitely want to take advantage of its proximity to the area’s attractions. The cabin is only a half-mile from the Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Loop, an eight-mile trail of more than a hundred galleries, studios, and craft shops. In less than fifteen minutes, you can drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or to the attractions of downtown Gatlinburg, which include the Guinness World Records Museum, an aquarium, thrill rides, and a tram that heads up to Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area and Amusement Park.

Old Hickory Lodge just might be the site of your best vacation yet. So book your stay today… before someone else beats you to it!

Excellent Trip

Our cabin was just enough space for our 14 guests. We had everything we needed (except enough pans to cook with). We plan to return really soon.

Perfect vacation!

This house was perfect for our family. It is the first time we had enough room for everyone and was comfortable for hanging out. The hot tub was great and the teens loved the game tables. It is also in a great location being only minutes from Gatlinburg. I would definitely recommend this cabin and will definitely use it in the future!

Very Nice!!

Cabin was very nice and in a great location! Very clean and comfortable. Only negatives were that the game tables could use some repair and the kitchen was missing some basic supplies like baking sheets. Overall we were very happy and will definitely consider renting this or another cabin from .

Great place and location

We booked this cabin for our large party of nine people. The place was lovely and clean and ample enough room. The only thing we found was that there was a lack of utensils in the kitchen for cooking with. No chopping boards so we bought one for little money. Pots and pans could do with revamping. We got by but if the cabin was to maximum people it would be difficult catering wise. Other than that, all rooms, facilities and games were just what we wanted. Parking is right outside and convenient. The location of this cabin for Great Smoky Mountains, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Dollywood is perfect, it couldn't have been better for us. Food City is just a couple of miles away and again very convenient. I would certainly recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate booking again. You won't be disappointed with your stay here.

Parking not good...to close for party cabins

The fridge leaked whole 7 days. Called the maintenance and they came out and still couldn’t fix it and never had their advanced dept come out. The cabins next door kept parking in our spots cause they wanted more space. Last day we were there the cabin next door were blasting music and swimming naked in the hot tub. We attempted to kindly speak to them that our children could hear and see them and they said there is no security here so they don’t care.

Wasn't a good stay

First day we got here the air was not working they had someone come out and fix it then the next day it stopped working again the first guy did not fix it because he was scared of the bears. The next guy was very nice and fixed it. We asked nicely if we could get moved into something else because it took a few hours to get fixed they did not move us. We had too burn up. The whole stay was horrible kept getting hot. The view is not that good. The cabins are too close together. The kitchen very small for 18 people. Hardly any pots and pans. So if you come here bring your own pots and pans.

Comfy and cozy we’re we!

This cabin was great for a big party. The beds were comfortable and the cabin was cozy. We really enjoyed the game room; it was a big hit! I had to call maintenance a couple of times for some minor issues and the response time was very fast and the people were attentive and courteous. I should have reported that we didn’t have any oven mitts or dish towels in the kitchen so I’m not sure if that was just an oversight that could’ve been easily rectified. I would like to pass on to others that this 4 bedroom cabin only had 1 hanger in the house so we were unable to hang up our clothes. Other than those 2 things, it was a great experience!
