Location: Gatlinburg, Tennessee
Situated less than a mile from downtown Gatlinburg, Aaron’s Lodge is minutes from the dozens of fun attractions, quaint shops, and tasty restaurants in the Smoky Mountains! Now with extensive renovations complete, this 7-bedroom, 4-bathroom cabin for 16 has lots of fresh, new spaces and great upgrades for an awesome stay with friends and family or coworkers and teammates. From new lighting and new shiplap to tongue-and-groove flooring and a brand-new game room, Aaron’s Lodge is a remodeled and remade dream!
Step into modern style paired with cabin charm for a truly comfortable and relaxing trip to the Smokies. Not only does this large-group cabin provide the comforts of home, but it also harbors entertaining spaces and bonus amenities sure to please not one but all. Lounge in the inviting living room for a chat with friends by the fire, whip up homemade meals in the fully equipped kitchen, enjoy breakfast with tree-studded views and dinner with city lights, rally the youngsters for a game tournament in the rec room, host movie nights on the big screen TV, unwind in the outdoor hot tub, and settle into 6 private bedrooms plus a bunk room for sweet-dream-filled nights.
Whether you’re on vacation with friends and family, traveling with coworkers, or attending a church conference with a group, Aaron’s Lodge has plenty of space, more than enough entertainment, and the perfect setting for good times and even better memories in Gatlinburg!
With an open floorplan throughout the living space, keeping everyone connected won’t be a hassle with a plush sofa, love seat, and an oversized arm chair in addition to plenty of seating in the nearby dining area. Flip on the big screen TV to the game of the year, open the sliding glass door to the back deck, pile snacks and drinks on the coffee, dining, and picnic tables, and you’ve got an epic game-day party no one will forget! On cool evenings, toss a few logs into the elegant, wood-burning fireplace, pass around bowls of parmesan-topped popcorn, pop in a Blu-ray disc, check out the cabin’s movie library, and get cozy for movie night on the big screen.
Nearby lies the bright kitchen with all-white cabinetry, gorgeous granite countertops, stainless-steel mixed with sleek, black appliances, and stylish open shelving. And the best part is it’s fully equipped to handle all your favorite recipes! Fix a hot breakfast for the gang on the stove, set out a sandwich spread with fresh options from the fridge for lunch, and pull out all the stops for dinner with freshly baked bread from the oven, grandma’s secret recipe, and a pot of joe to go with dessert. Oh, and don’t worry about the mess — the dishwasher is more than ready to take care of business!
With the dining area just off the kitchen, filling the beautifully designed, wooden table for 12 with plenty of sides down the center will be easy as pie…which we highly recommend for dessert! When mealtimes are over, take advantage of the natural light and enchanting wooded views pouring in from the floor-to-ceiling windows to sketch an inspired character for your next book or tackle a few arts and crafts with the little ones. As a versatile space, you’ll find endless uses for the dining area throughout your stay.
Ready to beat the highest scores but don’t want to wait in line at the arcade? Not a problem! Simply head to the downstairs rec room with a classic pinball machine and a modern arcade unit for 2. There’s even a table for 2, perfect for board games brought from home or bought in town. Challenge friends and family alike in an epic game tournament to rule them all…or stay up all night honing your gamer skills. Either way, great times and good laughs await in the rec room. Plus, this space doubles as a bedroom with 2 twin bunks the kids will very much appreciate because it has a flatscreen TV, great for keeping up with the latest Marvel releases.
When on vacation, bedtime is crucial to gain not only enough sleep to tackle the next day’s activities but also quality sleep to feel better than best throughout your trip. Aside from the bunk room on the lowest level, there are 6 additional bedrooms as well as 4 full bathrooms. Choose from 3 bedrooms (king, queen, and full) with 2 bathrooms on the first lower level, 2 bedrooms (king and queen) and 1 bathroom on the entry level, and the king master suite with a private en-suite bathroom and a stunning ceiling-high, tiled shower on the second floor.
Each bedroom boasts a mounted flatscreen TV and a light, spacious feel, keeping everyone entertained and in comfort throughout the night. A couple bedrooms even come with direct access to one of 2 back decks, instantly drawing in the nature lovers of the group. Feel free to sleep in to your heart’s content and duck into your bedroom for a bit of privacy when needed throughout the day. Enjoy a relaxing, hot shower before slipping into the cool sheets of your comfy bed and snuggling up for a feature film on your way to dreamland.
Inhale fresh mountain air, soak in delightful wooded views, and reconnect with nature from 2 decks at Aaron’s Lodge. Sip coffee or tea with friends every morning at the table for 2 on the lower-level deck or join family for breakfast at the picnic table on the entry-level deck. Perhaps best of all, an outdoor hot tub awaits to soothe tired muscles from a long hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or simply offer an additional way to relax every evening at the cabin. There’s even a charcoal grill, ready for barbecue parties and steak dinners at a moment’s notice!
With a large property comes ample parking, featuring a paved space for 4 small cars or 2-3 larger ones. Plus, with a location less than a mile from town, additional parking is also available behind the Tennessee State Bank in the overflow lot. As another perk, there’s a trolley stop nearby, less than half a mile down the hill. And when you arrive at Aaron’s Lodge, simply walk right in and make yourself at home as there are no steps into the cabin — convenience at its best!
Just when you thought the amenities were over, there are even more in store! Throw a dance party or a dance battle with the CD player, clean clothes and towels in the provided washer and dryer, and check out local events on our blog or keep up with the latest Netflix drama via the complimentary high-speed internet.
With the city within sight and a location less than a mile to town, Aaron’s Lodge is a great Gatlinburg option for those who want to enjoy a mountain escape without sacrificing distance to local attractions, gourmet restaurants, unique boutiques, and outdoor fun!

We wanted to treat the graduating seniors from our youth group to Aaron's Lodge in Gatlinburg. We had the best time! Our 2 favorites, though we could list many, are the huge dining room table and the amazing comfortable beds! Thanks!

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Directions were very easy to follow. We had a large group and everyone arrived separately, even some as late as 11:00 pm and we had no problems getting to the cabin. The deck area was really nice and the hot tub was especially nice. The house was really clean upon our arrival as well. Thank you very much.
