Gatlinburg Tennessee is the gateway to the most visited National Park in the United States.  Like any other popular vacation destination, there are 'places to go' and 'places to be'.  When choosing a vacation home it is nice to get an overview of both. 

Admittedly we are partial to our area, and of course we think it is the very best in all of Gatlinburg.  But other areas around town are wonderful as well. 

The Aquarium district is anchored by Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies and the bustling corner of River Road and the Parkway.  East on Highway 321 is the old hotel district with Alamo Steakhouse and the Food City supermarket.  Ober Gatlinburg ski area is 'up on the mountain' with various chalets and private homes.  All of these areas are destinations for adventurers and traveler's as 'places to go',  but the most visited and vibrant area of Gatlinburg is Stoplight 8--the 'place to be'. 

The area around stoplight 8 used to be known, and is still known by seasoned locals as "Rebel Corner".  New luxury hotels are opening in this desirable area.  The Moonshine distilleries are a destination for curious (and daring!) fun seekers.  Paula Dean, Bubba Gump, Starbucks, Dicks, Mellow Mushroom, Loco Burro and the iconic Space Needle all occupy the 'Times Square of Gatlinburg' - Stoplight 8. 

The Redwood Retreat sits just far enough from all of this bustling fun to be walkable and escapable.  An easy five minute stroll back to the Retreat puts our guests in a whole different world when its time to unwind and enjoy nature in luxury.  It is the most unique vacation home setting in all of Gatlinburg. 

Come enjoy the fun of walking all of Gatlinburg from your luxury vacation home in the Smokies --The Redwood Retreat!
