http://trekpouch.com I met with the owner last night, and will be doing gear testing for the Trek Pouch. We installed the Trek Pouch on both my poles this morning (about a 2 minute process!), I am looking forward to having these on my journey. Such a simple, yet useful idea! A big thanks to the other companies I am talking with currently - I am looking forward to working out the small details, so we can test out, and spread the word about these ...
... settled in for the night. With a slight chill in the air, this promises to be a GREAT night of sleep - which I desperately need, after the last 2 nights of partying! Sunday April 6, Beautiful/easy 13 miles! The views were awesome, met some cool people and could not have asked for better weather :-) After arriving at the shelter, I found out the crew had stayed at the last shelter, only doing 5 miles......so they could finish off the moonshine they hiked in from Gatlinburg. So ...
The day started out great, was raining, so we decided to stay another day. Did the usual, hit up the outdoor storerabbed a bite to eat, and then decided tinto go out by myself for a bit. Stopped by a bar and had a drink or two, then walked around downtown. Had another drink at a shop, had some other fun stuff..then decided to go to the hotel and see what was going on. I ended up running into my group...they were heading to free moonshine tasting....so I tagged along. Had ...
... to try and use the bear cable as a "self rescue" ......NOT a good idea, was able to get myself up in the air a bit.....then the cable shifted, I went air born and landed directly on my back - with a loud thud. It hurt. Hurt a lot. Lmbo. Hiked up to the Dome, was a beautiful day, and plenty of awesome scenery. The smell of the woods reminded me of my Grandmothers house in N.J., sort of old growth/composting ground smell. Was great. As we approached ...
When we left Gatlinburg, we decided to drive through the park. The clouds and fog down below weren't too bad, but were in full force as we passed by the Chimney Tops and Clingman's Dome. The fog only got thicker and more dense the higher up we went. But it was still pretty. No leaves on the trees yet, but that made the view more interesting because you could see the terrain - the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Deer Ridge Mountain Resort Gatlinburg
Our family reunion at Deer Ridge in late July 2004 was outstanding. Driving out of Gatlinburg we kept our eyes open for our destination but we're totally flabbergasted by the amazing mountainside resort which appeared above us. "That can't be it, can it?" we remarked. But it was. Entering and driving through the beautiful golf course in the valley below, prepare yourselves for a steep drive up to the resort itself where you truly will find "The Best View of the Smokies". Our party of 30+ stayed in almost every type of accommodation available: 1 bedroom condos, 2 bedroom condos, and 1 bedroom with loft. All were remarkably clean, well-equipped for every need (including paperbacks by the fireplace), and awesome balcony views. We also enjoyed our evening meals as a group in the pavilion. The club house, with indoor pool, hot tub, pool table, and a magnificent deck, was close and relaxing. We adults especially enjoyed the "no kids" swimming ater 11 pm. From the resort base we enjoyed trips for white water rafting and tubing. Although some of us chose to do town things like the aquarium and shopping, mostly we enjoyed the nature and its offerings. All this for the modest price of $100-120/night thanks to Deer Ridge's special discount for family reunions. How great is that! The same vacation at Mackinac in my home state for far more modest accommodations would run $175+ per night. Believe me, when we're ready to return to the Smokies, we'll head for Deer Ridge Mountain Resort.
1st Family Reunion
We stayed at the Deer Ridge Mountain Resort it was a very nice place. High in the Mountains, about an hour from Gatlinburg. Beautiful scenery. One draw back was if you just wanted to stay on the mountain , you needed to bring food with you. There is a catering service for large groups. The other draw back (I guess that it is state wide) is the little black bugs. They were very persistent. All in all, we had a great reuion and would probably go back another time.
My Family loved Deer Ridge Mountain Resort
This was an excellant place to stay for my family. It was clean, quiet and a great place to get away from the busy city of Gatlinburg. There was lots for the kids to do and the VCR rental was very nice. The outside play area was clean as was the pool and game room area. We had a 1 BR Loft condo and had plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 kids.
Best View in the Smokies
Deerridge has one of the best views in the Smokies. Not only does it have a great view it is a wonderful place to stay. It offers a heated pool, steam room, jacuzzi, sauna, game room for the kids, tennis, playground, and a short nature hike. The staff is out of this world.
They go the extra mile to make sure your stay is great. We stayed in a 2 bedroom/2bath and had lots of room (more than a motel room). We loved where it was located away from the hustle and bustle. When we wanted the hustle and bustle we were only minutes away. I would highly recommend Deerridge.
Love the resort
My wife and I have stayed at Deer Ridge twice in the last 6 months. We love it, easy to get to from interstate 40 without going through the crowds. Is close enough to Gatlinburg to really enjoy if you want to.
Loved the Deer Ridge Mtn Resort
My church group wanted to get away to Gatlinburg for the New Year's and it seemed as though everything was booked up. At the last minute, there were openings at the Deer Ridge Mtn Resort. All I can say is when we pulled up it was amazing. The view was incredible and the rooms were gorgeous. Nothing like clean, mountain air to clear your head. We will definitely make a trip back to that resort.
Favorite Destination in the Smokies
We, along with friends, have been vacationing in the Great Smoky Mountains for over 30 years. Deer Ridge Mountain Resort has now become our favorite destination! It's close enough to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge to enjoy the shopping, dining and theaters, but also a quiet retreat to the solitude and beauty of the mountains. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the view is breathtaking!
Best View of the Smokies
Our family has stayed at Deer Ridge Mountain Resort several times during the past few years. It truly has "the best view of the smokies!" We stayed in a one bedroom with a loft (a second bedroom) and it was perfect for our family of four (they are on the top floor with a better view). The indoor recreation area (heated pool, hot tub, sauna, steamroom, and gameroom) was very relaxing after a day of hiking in the National Park. The resort is close enough to Gatlinburg (9 miles) but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet. We recommend this resort highly !!!!
Great place to relax
We have stayed at Deer Ridge Mountain Resort several times, and have found it to be consistently well-kept, and just a great place to relax.
We enjoy the beautiful view from the balcony, the clean mountain air, and the freedom from noice and commotion. The resort is close enough to Gatlinburg and all the hustle and bustle if we want to participate, but generally we just want peace and quiet.
Bottomline: Deer Ridge is a great value.
My buddies and I go on a yearly golfing excursion to Gatlinburg, Tn and we always stay at Deer Creek condos. Very reasonable rates, and the most beautiful scene of the Smokies as far as my wife and I are concerned.
