REVIEWS and AWARDS
"Location is perfect. Dan and Karen are exceptionally accommodating. The rooms are cozy and feel like home. The bed was really comfy and we rested very well. There are plenty of places to sit and watch the birds and wildlife while you read a book and sip on complementary coffee and tea if you want to wait out the hustle and bustle of mid day Gatlinburg. Will stay here again on our next Smoky Mountain adventure."
"Laurel Springs Lodge is close to every Gatlinburg has to offer but in it's own quiet oasis. Morning start out with wonderful fresh baked goods and a variety of options for breakfast. Dan and Karen are wonderful hosts with plenty of suggestions for out of the way places to eat. A great place to relax after a hectic day with as much privacy as you will want. Rooms are small but clean and accommodating, beds are super comfortable. You will not regret your stay!"
"This place was a little Slice of Heaven! The owners were wonderful and thought of every single thing to make our stay Pleasant. The house is close to everything yet secluded at the same time. The breakfast was absolutely delicious! We will definitely return! Jaime and Jason Walden"
"Fabulous, peaceful, wonderful, delicious....there are just not enough good adjectives to describe how amazing our experience was at this bed and breakfast. We enjoyed a three night stay to celebrate our anniversary and relax. Dan and Karen made us feel welcome and special at every moment. The Lodge is beautifully decorated and the room was so cozy and comfortable. It is close to downtown, but off the main road enough to be quiet. The breakfasts were phenomenal every morning. We definitely hope to return in the future!"
"Me and my husband went to Gatlinburg for our 1 year anniversary. We stayed at the Laurel Spring B&B. Dan and Karen are excellent hosts. The B&B was a very nice and clean. We will deffinetlly be staying there in the future. If you have never been there you need to go !!! I give the B&B a 10......."
"We stayed at Laurel Springs Lodge for a third time last month. We first went in 2010 and will be back again. Karen and Dan are consummate hosts and the nicest people. Their B&B is cozy and inviting, and their breakfasts are terrific. We enthusiastically recommend staying there."
"Absolutely wonderful. We were on our honeymoon and decided last minute that we were going to stay an extra day. We decided we wanted to try a B and B since I've personally never experienced one. We didn't find it on Air B and B which is what we usually use to find a place to stay. I'm sure if they were on Air B and B, they'd get much even more business, because this place is amazing!! I loved Dan and Karen. Great hospitality and great food!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!"
