Suddenly the little boy was running out toward him.

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.

We spent the afternoon exploring the town of Gatlingburg. I rewarded myself with Coronarita (Beer and Margarita, win win situation). Followed by another beating at the hands of the Sach's, this time on the mini golf course. I think these ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Carr's Northside Cottages & Motel Gatlinburg
We stayed at Carrs this past Febuary in their #8 Honeymoon Suite. Carrs is up the East Parkway of Gatlinburg. It includes a motel, several cottages and townhouses, all on the same property. It is older, but seems to be well kept. There is an outdoor pool, and also included is a playground and picnic area which makes it great for families, Something you don't normally see at motels. Our room was for 2 people only, but they have 1,2 &3 bedroom units available.
This place is a 6-8 minute walk to downtown or you can take the Trolley which you wait forever on but the blue line is only a quarter.
We recently returned from our first trip to beautiful Gatlinburg staying at Carr's Cottages. First off, I just want everyone to know that although Carr's is in Gatlinburg, it is on the outer edge of downtown. It is out of the way of traffic, which is nice, but not within walking distance to many of the attractions, at least not for us with two small children. What we did was drive to the parking garage at light three and then walk, or you can take the trolley.
We had not been to Gatlinburg in about 20 years, so I checked Trip Advisor for recommendations on where to stay. The reviews for this motel raved about how great it was. We thought it was okay, but felt that it certainly didn't rate the reviews given. The price was reasonable, so no complaints there. The stream runs by the motel several feet away, but we could still hear it a little with the windows closed. The weather was a bit cool when we were there, so perhaps more people enjoyed this motel during warm weather when you can have the windows open and hear the stream better.
Just returned from Gatlinburg. There are so many lodging choices, it seemed a bit overwhelming at first. So thanks to those of you who left such wonderful reviews of Carr's. We stayed in their log cabin for three nights and loved it. It's perfect for a couple: nice big room, queen-sized bed, jacuzzi, gas fireplace, kitchenette, front porch with table, chairs, and swing. Everything was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Just returned from a wonderful 5 days at Carr's. I have been staying at Carr's for over 40 years and loved each visit. Carr's is the place to go if you really want relax and not be bothered. The staff are friendly and helpful, no maid service unless you request it (noone to bother you when you want to sleep late or lounge aroiund), if you need fresh towels just stop by the laundry room. No phones in rooms, but we go ther to relax not to hang on the phone. Rooms are always clean, kitchen units always functional, nice pool and hot tub. There is a play area for the family along with a grill area for cooking outdoors. Very peaceful and secluded from the road, yet the trolly is just across the creek. Great place to take the family and save some money. Close to a grocery store so you're able to do some cooking in one of the many units that have kitchens. Would not stay anywhere else. Keep up the good work!
I have been staying at the Carr's since I was twelve, I am now twenty years old and still stay there to this day! My boyfriend and a friend of ours were all off from work for a weekend in March and wanted somewhere to go and stay just for a night so since he had never been there before I decided to take him and our friend. The first place I thought of was Carr's since it is amazing and the view is awesome. Well when we got there they wanted to stay in something nicer than a hotel room so we got one of their Chalet's for the night I believe it was 116. It was amazing!!!! There were two bedrooms one upstairs and one downstairs, two balconies, fully stocked kitchen, dining room, jacuzzi tub that was very big, two baths, nice pull out couch in the living room and a fireplace!! It was one of the best times I have ever had in Tn. and mostly because of our Chalet and the view was just amazing and the staff was more than friendly!!!

Had a great time
when we stayed at Carr's Cottages. We have been there several times and the rooms are always clean and the staff is helpful. We usually stay in a room with a kitchen; the kitchen is clean and everything in good working order. There is an area with a grill and picnic tables and a coin-operated laundry area. It is convenient to a trolley stop. The pool is very nice - large and clean. There are no telephones in the rooms - only in the chalets, but we just used our cell phone. The grounds are clean and well-kept.
