Top-Notch Stay, Treated Like Family

5 on June 28, 2016

The food was delicious, the property was beautiful and comfortable, the room was comfortable, and the B&B was quietly located far enough off the main road to have peace and quiet. But what really made the experience was how Dan and Karen treated us like their own family. Immediately upon entering, we were very warmly welcomed, they had upgraded us to a larger room "just because they thought we might like it", and every step of the way, they were one step ahead of us. Dan and Karen were extremely helpful to us in navigating our first time in the Smokies, as well as top-notch local restaurant recommendations. Gatlinburg itself is a bit of a tourist trap, but you would never know that staying here. We would absolutely come back just because we know exactly where we would stay every time.


I only wished I lived there!

I came to Gatlinburg for a wedding. I planned extra days and wanted a special place to come home to after visiting the Smokey Mountain National Park and the wedding. Karen and Dan are the best.!!! 1. I added an additional guest before arriving, and #2. added teen guest (in the same room) at the last minute. Not only could they accommodate my requests, but were so very gracious about those additions. I am a Celiac (require Gluten Free) and the breakfasts were exemplary. The location, room, & breakfasts were perfect for me and for my guests. Their gazebo is a perfect respite on a hot afternoon. My highest recommend for the Lodge and for Dan and Karen. My kudos for a wonderful stay.


Simply The Best

We have stayed in many B&B's over the years in many different locations, and you simply cannot find better accommodations, service, breakfasts, and genuine true hospitality than Dan and Karen provide at Laurel Springs Lodge B&B. They have set the bar! Loved our stay, breakfasts were amazing we only wish you served dinner, by far the best meals we had in Gatlinburg, were at Laurel Springs. Loved your attention to detail in the rooms, the decor and your beautiful garden,did I mention the amazing breakfast! We were sad to leave and are already planning our next visit to the Smoky Mountains and Laurel Springs Lodge B&B.


A Wonderful Find!

Beautiful and charming. Dan and Karen are absolutely lovely. From incredible attention to detail, to delicious food and great recommendations, this is the place to go when you truly want to relax and enjoy the Smokey Mountains. (Also, they are extremely accommodating when it comes to dietary restrictions and if you're gluten intolerant, you can expect to find delicious GF treats all day!)


Finest Bed and Breakfast in Gatlimburg

5 on December 18, 2015

We have been staying at Laurel Springs Bed and Breakfast for 5 years now. We come to Gatlinburg at least twice a year and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. It is the most beautiful, quaint and comfortable place to stay in Gatlinburg. Dan and Karen treat us like family. You will never want to leave- gracious innkeepers, delicious food in an adorable inn! Five stars!!!


A nice stay for both city & park adventures...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in the fern room during the peak of the fall foliage. Dan was especially accommodating by carrying our larger luggage through his own home so that we would not need to carry them up and down stairs, In addition, Dan went above & beyond to help us use our B&B gift and offered us a discount voucher to the Biltmore Estate after asking about our plans for the day. The Inn & our room were very clean & well kept. The fern room was a bit small but we were happy to have this accommodation so close to town. Karen is an excellent cook & offered a nice variety of breakfast choices. Great job!


Great experience at our 1st B&B!

5 on October 15, 2015

My fiancé and I decided to try out a bed and breakfast having no idea what to expect. We were extremely impressed. Dan and Karen do an amazing job to make you feel welcome and Karen's cooking made every breakfast quite enjoyable. We wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely be coming back and recommending friends and family to stay here!


Loved Laurel Springs Lodge

My mother and I visited Laurel Springs Lodge and couldn't have been more pleased with out experience. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and made us feel welcome and valued from the moment we booked our reservation. Comfortable porch, beautiful landscaping, and excellent breakfast. We will certainly stay here again on future trips to the area!


Wonderful Experience

4.6 on December 01, 2014

Looked for a place to spend Thanksgiving night as me and my husband would not have our daughters home for the holiday this year. So we ventured off to find a nice little B&B to make the best of the holiday. Dan Berry, the inn keeper was so nice, friendly, and accommodating. We felt right at home. He even recommended a place to go to eat a typical thanksgiving meal where we wouldn't have all the crowds. It was a perfect day and evening. We have stayed at a lot of B&B's over the years, but this was by far the cleanest one that we have ever been too. Highly recommend it if you are in Gatlinburg.


Good Gatlinburg Alternative

We stopped here on the way home from a 2 week Blue Ridge Parkway trip. It was one of the pleasantest stops of our trip. Clean and comfortable, great breakfast, and friendly helpful owners.
