Located less than 15 minutes from the heart of downtown Gatlinburg, the Mountain Shadows Resort in the Great Smoky Mountains keeps you close to it all. In a short drive, you can be wandering the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, exploring the oceans and seas at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, or watching a tournament at Rocky Top Sports World. Everything is at your fingertips when you stay in a lovely cabin in Mountain Shadows Resort.
If you want to get out of the cabin and check out the area, head to the Parkway to see all the family friendly attractions, get a bite to eat, do some sightseeing, or shop a bit. Along with favorites like the aquarium, you can play miniature golf, eat an Ogle Dog at Fannie Farkle’s, ride go karts, get an airbrush t-shirt, find a beautiful wedding dress at one of the local shops, get an old-time photo taken, or get a giant chocolate-covered strawberry from Kilwin’s. The Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, just down the road, is home to artists and craftsmen showcasing and selling pottery, leather goods, wood carvings, jewelry, photographs, paintings, birdhouses, and so much more.
Want to cool off during your summer getaway with family and friends to Gatlinburg? When you stay at Mountain Shadows Resort, you’ll have access to a pool where the kids can play and you can relax. The opening date varies, but the swimming pool here is typically open from Memorial Day to Labor Day each year.
The Club House
The Cub House at Mountain Shadows Resort is located just above the swimming pool. It offers a beautiful and convenient indoor place to have wedding ceremonies and receptions. It features tables and chairs for up to 50 people, and a kitchen allows for catering or onsite preparations there.
Because it’s located within a cabin community, it’s an incredibly convenient place to have a wedding before heading to a cozy cabin for your honeymoon! And you’ll have plenty of options for guests who want to spend a few days in the Great Smoky Mountains before or after the wedding.
The pavilion at Mountain Shadows Resort is a great place to enjoy a nice afternoon or evening not too far from the cabin. It features picnic tables and picnic-style charcoal grills, so you can bring some burgers and steaks for everyone to enjoy. It’s subject to availability and open on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to plan ahead.
If you want to get out and stretch your legs, Mountain Shadows Resort has some fun outdoor amenities for guests to enjoy during their stay. You can play around at the volleyball pit, or you can let the kids have some fun on the playground. There are even baby swings for the little ones!
