Great B&B experience!!!

It was a great smooth experience. The breakfast was really delicious. The best part is it can book for only 1 day which is quite suitable for a short trip plan. Highly recommend!!

Dan and Karen do an excellent job running the Laurel Springs Lodge. The house is in great shape and has all the amenities we were looking for. They have an excellent breakfast menu with something for everyone. The do special requests too. The location is just off the beaten path but not too far. We will be back !


Wonderful weekend getaway

I found this B&B by accident and I'm so glad I did! It is located within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg, but still very quiet on a secluded private drive. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable (loved the sheets, they were so soft!) Dan and Karen were very friendly and helpful when suggesting restaurants. By the way, Karen is a fantastic cook! If you are looking for a great B&B don't pass this one up!


Quiet Respite in Bustling Gatlinburg

5 on July 25, 2016

We were pleased to find this little gem in Gaitlinburg tucked away just off the main drag. Well within walking distance to local attractions our upgraded suite was comfortable and roomy! Breakfasts were delicious - the choices and willingness to accommodate a special dietary request was greatly appreciated. Dan and Karen were gracious hosts and provided a wealth of local information. We highly recommend this B & B.


Wonderful Stay!

After researching all options, we decided to stay here a night for our anniversary before hiking Mt. Leconte. Charmed from the moment we pulled into the parking lot! Beautiful landscaping! It is located off the busy highway on a quiet street. No more than a 5-10 minute walk into the heart of Gatlinburg. We stayed in the Fern Mini Suite. The beds are SUPER comfortable and the entire place is immaculate and clean. Breakfast was wonderful! They are eager to help with any suggestions in the area. We are already planning another trip! - The Moffitts


Wonderful Getaway On The Edge of Downtown Gatlinburg

5 on July 06, 2016

My wife and I recently stayed here to celebrate our fifth anniversary, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The food was delicious, the room was clean and comfortable, and the lodge provided a wonderful place to rest and recover between our ventures into downtown Gatlinburg. The location was perfect, close enough that we could quickly walk into the downtown area (or easily jump on a trolley if we wanted to), but enough on the edge of downtown that it still felt like a retreat. We will definitely be returning here for another Gatlinburg adventure!


A Lovely Stay

5 on July 06, 2016

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Laurel Springs Lodge B&B! Dan and Karen are wonderfully hospitable and make you feel at home. Their cozy B&B is so clean and well decorated - which is something I look for in a B&B - CLEAN SHEETS! Morning breakfasts were wonderful - Karen makes an extra little nugget of goodness for breakfast in addition to what you chose for the morning the night before. And, having breakfast at the B&B certainly beat leaving the premises to wait in hour long lines for the pancake houses in the morning. What a great stay - we certainly will be back and won't stay anywhere else.


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.
