1. Pigeon Forge is the ideal meeting spot for a Christmas get together.

Did you know that Pigeon Forge is just a day’s drive from over 60% of the nation’s population? This great location in East Tennessee makes our Smoky Mountain city a fantastic place to get together with your extended family this holiday season. When you coordinate your Christmas vacation with friends and family, you can make your reunion even more convenient by staying together at the Cherokee Lodge. Our condos are all located in the same resort community, so everyone in your party will be just minutes away from all of the holiday fun in Pigeon Forge.

2. Easy access to the trolley tours of the Pigeon Forge Christmas lights.

Every year, the city of Pigeon Forge offers special trolley tours of the city’s Christmas lights, and 2014 is no exception. Guests at the Cherokee Lodge will be steps away from the Pigeon Forge Trolley Tour of Lights! Our condos are right across the street from the Pigeon Forge Trolley Station at Patriot Park, so you can be first in line for the Christmas lights tour.

Spending the holidays away from home doesn’t mean you have to forsake a traditional Christmas dinner! Our condos come with large open kitchens, so you can whip up your favorite dishes in no time. Cherokee Lodge is located close to a number of grocery stores, so guests can easily pick up everything they need to prepare a meal. If you want a vacation from cooking, you can visit one of the excellent area restaurants that are open for Christmas.

4. Close to all of the best Pigeon Forge Christmas shows.

When you stay at the Cherokee Lodge, you’ll be right around the corner from all of the amazing Christmas shows in Pigeon Forge. Here are a few of our favorite shows running this December:
