Timber Rose English Lodge
One last wrap-up on our journey to the Smokys: a travel tip. We decided we wanted to be off the beaten track a bit, so I did a little search on that magical tool, the Internet, and lucked onto the Timber Rose English Lodge. (Shh...!) It's just a few miles outside Gatlinburg on the Arts and Crafts Community Trail, up quite a steep little winding incline, tucked onto the side of the mountain. A lovely place with great suites that include their own kitchens, private verandas and hot tubs. Private, beautiful, price competitive, highly recommended. It really is what it claims to be: a peaceful oasis.
