Mountain House Inn Welcomes Families and Groups to Gatlinburg

Let us save you the trouble of checking us out on TripAdvisor.   We think our wonderful guests say it best why you should choose Mountain House Inn for your next Gatlinburg vacation stay, so we sprinkled real reviews throughout our web site for you to enjoy.

Childhood memories of family vacations, a slower time, and good old-fashioned fun are a precious thing; probably why so many of us get nostalgic about our own experiences and are anxious to create the same good feelings for our children. But it is getting harder and harder to do in this fast paced, blinged-out, go-go-go world.  And that is where our Gatlinburg Mountain House Inn comes in.  Our Inn does not recreate the vacation destination Gatlinburg used to represent; no, it continues the tradition.

Built in 1982, our 57-room Mountain House Inn comes with a family history and ties to Gatlinburg going back almost 100 years.  Our family-owned American business is driven to give each guest the same great mountain vacation experience as our grandfather Andrew Huff did when he built the very first hotel in Gatlinburg in 1916.  This is why we are the perfect choice for family vacations, reunions, weddings, and group gatherings.

“We’ve stayed at The Mountain House several times in the past and always find it to be a pleasurable experience. It is near downtown and have very clean and comfortable rooms and are reasonably priced. Luan, the manager, makes you feel like family and a home away from home. We will be back.” ~ January 2018

Close to the city, but country peaceful, our family-friendly Mountain Home Inn is conveniently located within walking distance to many of the fine craft shops, restaurants, and popular Gatlinburg attractions that line the streets of Gatlinburg, such as Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.  And if you don’t feel like walking, there is a convenient trolley stop right across the street!  We are also close to the adventures to be found in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park like hiking, wildlife viewing, white water rafting, zip lining and horseback riding.

“This was our first stay at Mountain House Motor Inn. It is located off the main strip, but very convenient to the Parkway & the Village. Room was very clean (non-smoking) & met our needs. Easy check-in/check-out. Beds were firm (which we like), plenty of pillows & fridge. Everything we needed for a pleasant stay at a reasonable price.” ~ December 2017

Just because Mountain Home Inn retains the good, old-fashioned appeal of value and service and projects the “feel” of the 1950’s, be assured we also understand the demands of a family vacation in the 21st century!  We offer spacious comfort that will fit your hotel travel budget, and our property and room amenities are top-notch!

The great thing about good memories is you can’t have too many.  Mountain House Inn’s recently remodeled accommodations will provide your family or group with the perfect Smoky Mountain get away.  How do we know?  Because we measure our success by the number of returning guests – and that’s a lot of folks now.   We know you will come back again and again to visit us once you give Mountain House Inn the opportunity to become your Gatlinburg vacation headquarters.

“Great location to the strip, only a couple blocks away. The room was dated however it was clean and comfortable at a great price. The lady at the front desk was even nice enough to let us check it out before we booked. I would stay again.” ~ December 2017
