When you stay at Roaring Romance, downtown Gatlinburg is practically at your doorstep. You can walk or take the trolley to restaurants, shops, and amusements such as the aquarium, different museums, and mini golf. You’re also just a short drive from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you can savor nature in all its grandeur.
And when you’re not hiking, skiing, exploring Dollywood, or shopping Pigeon Forge’s outlet mall, you can relax among the elegance and comfort of Roaring Romance itself. On the 3rd floor of Gatlinburg’s Gatehouse condo community, this 2-bedroom, 2-bath unit is as well suited for 2 couples as it is for a family.
The open plan living room/dining area/kitchen makes it easy for everyone to hang out together even when doing his or her own thing. While you’re cooking in the kitchen, you can keep an eye on the kids as they put together a jigsaw at the dining table or watch a movie on the living room’s 50” smart flat-panel HDTV.
Even when you’re not watching TV, the living room is a bright, airy space in which to kick back and relax. The plush sofa can convert to a bed, enabling 5 people to sleep at Roaring Romance in all. Curl up in the armchair with that book you haven’t had time to crack open at home—now’s your chance! Or stretch out on the lush chaise with your tablet and take advantage of the free WiFi. The only drawback? It’s so comfortable you might not want to get back up! In winter the gas fireplace makes the living room especially cozy and welcoming; in summer the ceiling fan keeps the space delightfully cool… especially when you open the sliding doors to the balcony and let in the fresh mountain air.
The covered balcony, furnished with a dining table and comfortable rocker armchairs, may become your favorite place to relax. Bring out your morning coffee and listen to the songbirds, the breeze rustling through the trees, and the babbling brook below. Later, cook dinner on the electric grill (if you reeled in any trout from one of the nearby streams, it’ll taste especially wonderful grilled outdoors) and eat on the balcony while watching the sunset.
Of course, you can cook and dine indoors as well. The kitchen will entice even the most reluctant cooks, thanks to its spacious layout and wealth of counter space. Appliances, cookware, tableware: Roaring Romance has it all. The only thing you need to supply is the food—and thanks to the kitchen’s plentiful storage, you can stock up on groceries at the start of your stay and not have to waste time with additional trips to the supermarket, leaving you more time for fun.
With a dining table that seats 4 and a breakfast bar that accommodates another 4, Roaring Romance is made for entertaining. There’s even a wet bar—how chic is that?
The 2 bedrooms are as serene and sophisticated as the rest of the condo. Each has a king-size bed, a 40” flat-screen TV, a ceiling fan (its gentle whirr is so soothing), and plenty of storage. One of the bedrooms opens directly onto the balcony. After the kids have gone to sleep you can slip outside for a romantic last glass of wine under the stars!
With a full bathroom for each bedroom, it’ll be easy to get everyone showered and ready for the day’s adventures, which in the summer might include a swim in Gatehouse’s pool. But wherever the day takes you, you’ll love returning to Roaring Romance. So go ahead and make your reservation today, then start planning what might be your best vacation yet!
