Smokies Bed and Breakfast and Country Inns-
There has been a dramatic rise in preference for Great Smoky
Mountain B&B accommodations in the past few years. One reason
for this growth is because the innkeeper pampers the guest.
As the name implies, the price includes breakfast, which can
range from the continental style to a full country breakfast.
The innkeeper always has excellent recommendations for local
dining, recreational activities, and sightseeing. In season,
prices average about $125 a night per couple. Rod's Guide includes
a directory of B&Bs in the Smokies and Southern Highlands
- Condos are available for rental on the parkway in Gatlinburg
and other major city thoroughfares or in quieter more secluded
settings within minutes of all shopping and recreational activities
of the Smoky Mtns area. Amenities can usually include pool,
laundry, game room, and fitness center.
