thinking women with question mark on white backgroundWhen you’re planning your vacation, it pays to do your research. There are so many places to stay near the Great Smoky Mountains, so it is important that you sift through the many options and choose condos that have everything you’re looking for. Here are a few questions that will help you find the very best Pigeon Forge condo rentals.

1. Where exactly are your condos located?

Plenty of condos claim to have a great location, but you shouldn’t believe them until you find out the exact address. With the Google Maps “street view” feature, you can see your condo resort long before you go there in person. Also, be sure to utilize the photographs that appear on company websites. When you look at the pictures of our Pigeon Forge condo rentals, you will see that the Smoky Mountains are visible right from our resort.

2. Are your condos near public transportation?

If you are unfamiliar with an area, it can be much easier to use public transportation rather than driving. The Cherokee Lodge is right next door to the Pigeon Forge Central Trolley Station at Patriot Park, so guests can just hop on a trolley and go to some of the area’s most popular tourist attractions, like Dollywood, Gatlinburg or the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

3. Where can I read reviews of your resort?

If a company can’t tell you anywhere to read reviews of their condos, it’s time to move on! TripAdvisor is a great resource for evaluating vacation rentals. Cherokee Lodge earned a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor in 2013.

4. What amenities do your cabins feature?

With the right amenities, your cabin can really feel like a home away from home. Our Pigeon Forge condo rentals have gas fireplaces, fully furnished kitchens, walk in laundry rooms, in room jacuzzis, free wi-fi, and access to a workout center.

5. What is there to do in the area?

There is nothing worse than going on vacation and having nothing to do. Cherokee Lodge is surrounded by so many exciting attractions, shows, restaurants and shops. Visit out Things to Do page to learn about the most popular activities in the area!
