At The Appy Lodge we take great pride in being more than just another hotel in the Smokies. The foundation that we stand on, our purpose and our story are far greater than just another cookie cutter spot to stay the night while on vacation. That’s why we wanted to share with you 3 things that you might now know about our hotel in Gatlinburg. We hope that you’ll connect with our story and choose us as your next home away from home when planning your trip!

The Experience

When staying with us at our hotel in Gatlinburg, we want you to have an authentic and home like experience. Our hotel isn’t huge or flashy, but it is certainly cozy and friendly. As soon as you arrive, you’ll be greeted by guest that see you as a friend and by the time you leave, you’ll be another member of our Appy family. Our lobby is filled with comfy spots to sit and relax, rocking chairs and a fireplace. Why? Because we want you to hang out and tell us about your adventures in the Smokies or your favorite places in Gatlinburg. Come down to the lobby during the afternoon hours of your stay and have a couple fresh baked cookies and lemonade and let us share a couple tips with you on enjoying your trip. Our guest rooms and Our King Suite are designed in rustic and beautiful decor. They include custom made hickory furniture, paintings from Robert Tino, luxurious bedding, hardwood floors and other amenities. After a day of exploring, take a dip in our swimming pools or kick back and relax by the fire pits. At The Appy Lodge, we don’t want you to just stay with us – we want you to have the full experience of time at your home in the Smokies.

Partners, Purpose and Passion

The Appalachian Lodge, that’s our full name. The Appy, that’s what our friends call us. When the Appalachian Lodge was created, it was made to be much more than a hotel. Our owners wanted to make a place for guests to come, stay, relax and be inspired. They wanted to bring America’s most loved footpath, the Appalachian Trail, to the city of Gatlinburg. They wanted to line the hallways with information and photographs of the trail to help educate others about the AT, the mountains and the beautiful great outdoors. To do so, they reached out to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy for help. It is then that a great partnership was born! You see, here at The Appy we have a great purpose and a purpose that stands on passion. When you stay with us, you will experience that passion and the deep love that we have for our mountains. You will also be helping to provide care for the Appalachian Trail and when you share your stories about our hotel or about your time in the Smokies, you will also be a part of the purpose and inspire others to care for America’s greatest treasures as well. Our owners and The Appy Lodge will continue to partner with the ATC in the years to come and help in the efforts of maintaining a trail that has changed the lives of millions of people over the years. We hope that you’ll join us!
