So here are some personal tips for some of our special rooms.
Clingman Building – Named after the tallest mountain in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, this building is home to 48 rooms where most rooms have wood-burning fireplaces with a tiled hearth. The 4 floors are accessed by stairs or elevator, each with 13 rooms and feature large 364 square foot guest rooms. The middle two rooms on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor have an adjoining door accessing a full-sized family kitchen, complete with kitchen table and chairs, stove and oven, dishwasher, and full-sized refrigerator. The “end-rooms” on each floor provide a remodeled bathroom, complete with a 2-person soaking tub, a quaint wrought-iron bistro table and chairs where you can enjoy your morning coffee or mid-day snack. Our handicap-accessible rooms are located here and the extra-large bathrooms with “roll-in” showers easily accommodate the needs for guest needing a wheelchair.
LeConte Building – Named after the second tallest mountain in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, this building is home to 24 rooms. Each floor can be accessed by stairs or elevator and has 8 guest rooms per floor. The 3rd floor has beautiful, vaulted cathedral ceilings and ceiling fans. Most of the rooms in LeConte also have wood-burning fireplaces with a tiled hearth. LeConte is also home to our 2 best honeymoon suites that have in-room, extra-large, jetted tubs as well as a private bathroom. There are 6 sets of Deluxe 2 Queen Bed adjoining rooms for larger families or groups traveling together. The bathrooms in the “rooms ending in 8” feature a 2 person soaking tub and rustic walkin shower and have a quaint wrought-iron bistro table and chairs where you can enjoy your morning coffee or mid-day snack.
Creekside - “60” and “70” Buildings – Creekside is home to our standard 2-double bed and king guest rooms. The room size is about 300 square feet, offers shared balconies and is more economically priced. Each of these 2-story buildings were once the Ogle Motel and features its own private outdoor pool. Between these two buildings is a covered bridge which is where the City of Gatlinburg will feed trout into the Roaring Fork mountain stream. The “70” building also has two standard honeymoon rooms with a large, 2-person jetted tub as well as a private bathroom which can be booked directly through Brookside’s front desk.
