The Story of the Appy Lodge
Long before sharks moved into downtown Gatlinburg and moonshine was legal in the hills of Tennessee the community that attracts millions of guests every year today, was a small and simple place known as White Oak Flats. One of the residents back then was a man named David C. “Crockett” Maples. A family man that served not only served his country but also his community. After receiving an honorable discharge in September of 1865 Crockett returned to his Smoky Mountain home and worked to provide for his family by running a supply store at the foot of the mountains with the assistance of his wife Mary. The couple were known at that time serving up the best mountain man breakfast in the area to travelers passing through. Today, their family continues their legacy at Crockett’s Breakfast Camp and since opening it’s become one of the hottest breakfast spots in all of the Great Smoky Mountains. Why should you eat there? Here are 3 reasons, but let’s be honest, the first one should be enough to stir up a desire for you to experience it yourself.
At The Appy Lodge in Gatlinburg we know that any chance to save money is also a chance to do more on your vacation and even spend extra time with us in the Smoky Mountains. Below are some of the great perks that you’ll receive for free as our guest here in the Smokies.
You’ve finally arrived in Gatlinburg for the trip that you’ve been dreaming of for months. However, it’s raining, it’s pouring and you don’t want your vacation to be boring. With the Smokies receiving an average of 55 inches of rain in the lower elevations and up to 85 inches per year around Clingmans Dome, there’s a good chance that you’ll find yourself in a rainy day situation at some point. Granted, the amount of rainfall that we receive is what makes the Smoky Mountains so incredibly beautiful but the last thing you want to do is sit around in your hotel room wishing you had something to do as you want for the rain to pass. That’s why we’ve put together the ultimate list of things to do in Gatlinburg when it rains. Bonus, you’ll enjoy doing them on a sunny day too!
