Interactive Lobby Tour

Step back into history as you enjoy your virtual tour of our newly remodeled lobby.


Our Inn looked out over the mountain town of Gatlinburg long before the towering Space Needle, shops and restaurants lined the boulevard. When the Historic Gatlinburg Inn was built, moonshine was distilled illegally in the hills, hallows and upper reaches of the Sugarlands. Now it is legal and accessible just beyond our front stoop.
