Woke up to a delicious breakfast of ham and cheese omelets by Chef Marcus, who don't need no spatula to flip some eggs.
We broke camp leisurely and headed south ...
After DC we hired a car from Knoxville and headed to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. We stayed in a town called Gatlinburg and the only way I can describe it so that everyone understands.... It's like being at Disneyland without the rides but all the attractions and fast food restaurants that you could think of. It had so many mini golf places, Ripley's believe it or not attractions, cars from movies, old fashion ...
... Carrying your trash around with you in the backcountry can get pretty disgusting. Rotting food bits and used toilet paper don’t smell good, at least not to me (a bear might think differently). And it was heavy—my garbage bag weighed close to a pound by this point. One of my incessant worries had been whether or not A Walk in the Woods would relieve us of our garbage or force us to carry it another forty miles. Now, the dual burdens of my worry and the trash were lifted from ...
... take a fake shower near the top.
This one was still a little of a climb but much less torturous. There were tons of people at the top waiting for their Kodak moment behind the falls so we joined the queue. Got our romantic snaps and Chris got a quick head cool off.
Then we descended a steep bit near the river/falls and dipped our bods. Chris made a ...
... drive to the trail Marc inquired what our longest hike to date had been (Worrying question i thought). We informed him that 6 miles had been our longest. "O" he said "Today we are doing 8 miles". Poor Marc and Louise, I didn't have the heart to tell them that they should probably have chosen a shorter hike to be their first one. My concern grew for our hiking companions further as we started our walk. Me and Les had come prepared:

Historical Traveler Reviews Laurel Springs Lodge B&B Gatlinburg
Our first stay in a Bed and Brakfast far exceeded our expectations!!!
This was my first stay in a Bed and Breakfast and I LOVED it. The comraderie with the other guests was great, our hosts were gracious and very helpfull, the accomodations were very comfortable, and the breakfasts were outstanding!
I don't know if I will ever stay in another Hotel!!!
Enjoyed our stay
We stayed at Laurel Springs for 2 nights. We were made to feel very welcome and at home. Breakfasts were excellent and our hosts were as friendly and helpful as a guest could possibly expect. Would recommend the place to anyone.
Great memories that wil last Forever!
Our stay at Laurel Springs in September was wonderful!!! Our room, the Fern Room, was even more beautiful in person than in the on-line pictures. It was also very roomy, and absolutely the cleanest room of any hotel, motel, or B&B, that I have ever stayed in!! Belinda's attention to detail and welcoming hospitality were exceeded only by her scrumptious breakfasts. She treated everyone as if we were each her only concern for the entire day, and went out of her way to keep us happy, well-fed, and supplied with anything we could possibly need. The Inn is gorgeous and in a very quiet, picturesque location, even being so close to the Parkway. We would definitly recommend it to others, and stay there again ourselves.
My husband and I went to Gatlinburg in Feb. 2003. My husband suprised me with this trip. He had arranged for the children to stay with the grandparents for a weekend by ourselves. He booked us at the Laurel Springs and it was fantastic!!! It was our first trip to a B&B and it was great. Belinda and her husband Garth were so down to earth and friendly. The breakfast was wonderful and plentiful, fresh bread and fruit, and the potatoes are to die for. You could not ask for a better experience. We loved it and would recommend it for anyone looking for a place to stay were they actually feel welcomed and wanted. It was wonderful!!!
Laurel Springs is a GREAT place to stay!
Belinda and Garth made us feel welcome from the first second of our arrival and continued it all the way to departure ... the Inn is lovely, convenient to all Gatlinburg's attractions and quite quiet. I heartily recommend your staying, especially if you are a Gay or Lesbian individual or couple. I plan to go back as often as I can!
Great Place to Stay
This is a great B&B! If you want to be close to action, but not on a busy road, this is your place.
The innkeepers are friendly and make a great REAL breakfast -- not just jelly doughnuts like a lot of places. The dining room is bright and cheerful. The house also has a very nice common room.
The bedrooms are large and have VCRs, so you can watch that beautiful video you just shot in the National Park!
Laurel Springs Lodge is highly recommended!!!
A Little piece of heaven in the Smokies
The Laurel Springs Lodge is a charming bed and breakfast off the beaten path but close enough to it to be able get around Gatlinburg easily.
The breakfasts were excellent, the bed was comfortable, the ambiance was charming, and the hosts were friendly and helpful. I loved the breakfast porch, the view from my window, and the soothing sound of the crrek at night. All in all, my stay at the lodge was a peaceful and lovely getaway.
Friendly, Beautiful and Clean!
I enjoyed my stay in Gatlinburg! The Birdsey's were very friendly and opened their bed and breakfast to me and my family, it felt like home!
I know you will enjoy your stay just as I did!
Wonderful place to stay - we didn't want to leave!
This is an adorable Bed & Breakfast. The location is just enough out of the "hustle-bustle" but yet very accessible to downtown. We didn't use our car all week except to go to the National Park.Garth and Belinda are very welcoming proprietors and were quite accommodating. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful - we were always so full we didn't bother with lunch (except maybe an ice cream cone or two...).Beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious, romantic, well-appointed and clean. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
