The Appalachian Lodge

The Appy Lodge was not only created as a place to pay homage to the Appalachian Trail but also with a hope to encourage guests to fall in love with the great outdoors. We want your family to have a great experience in Gatlinburg and leave with unforgettable memories of your time in our beautiful Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our Appy family would love to see your children year after year and have the opportunity to see them grow into great stewards of the mountains. We have put together a list of some of the reasons that we believe you will find our hotel to be the perfect place for your family.

Our Location

You can be in both downtown Gatlinburg and to Pigeon Forge within just a few minutes. Families find it perfect for being able to visit The Island and Dollywood in a convenient amount of time but also being just down the road from the Ripley’s Aquarium and other Gatlinburg attractions. You can also avoid traffic and access the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in multiple areas. We offer guests a free downtown Gatlinburg parking pass and there is a Gatlinburg Trolly stop in our parking area. Ripley’s Davey Crockett Mini-golf is also located right outside of our front door, as is Flapjack’s Pancake Cabin.
