Why Condos are Best for Family Vacations

mainThere’s something special about a spacious condo that creates a home away from home. Whether because of the additional features or the likelihood to meet up for bonding time in the family room, condos create the type of vacation that becomes an unforgettable experience rather than just a place to sleep before sightseeing. When choosing a vacation rental for your family’s trip to the Smoky Mountains, consider these reasons why Pigeon Forge condos could make this visit to the Smokies your best trip ever.


Cherokee Lodge’s floor plan allows for everyone to play a game or watch a video without disturbing each other. Our spacious condos provide additional space to spread out on rainy days or those mornings you’d like to sleep in.

For families with children who love to get messy, the brand new washer and dryer in each unit is an easy way to keep the car and each child squeaky clean. In the living area, we provide oversized leather seating  and a large screen TV.

The kitchen is furnished with all you need to whip up a home cooked Southern meal. Having a kitchen where you can prepare food means you can use fresh ingredients and avoid those anyone is allergic to.

Below you’ll find the amenities included in the unit and around the complex.
