Have a Happy Mother’s Day in Gatlinburg

Whether you’re a mom or just want to do something nice for the mom in your life, when you  stay at White Oak Lodge and Resort over Mother’s Day (a great gift in itself), you’ll find Gatlinburg has some great ways to honor thy mother, Smoky Mountain style.

Mother’s Day at The Old Mill
Celebrate Mother’s Day at The Old Mill Restaurant or The Old Mill Pottery House Café & Grill on Sunday May 10. All moms will receive a special gift, and the down-home cooking will leave everyone feeling satisfied. Shop the Old Mill stores for additional gifts and souvenirs.

Horseback Riding
Here’s an original idea for Mother’s Day: Take her on a one-hour Smoky Mountain horseback ride out of Apple Valley Riding Stables in Townsend, Tenn. Enjoy the pure beauty of the Smokies on a relaxing ride during the perfect time of year.

The Melting Pot
A little fondue may be the perfect thing for mom. The Melting Pot restaurant in Gatlinburg is right in the heart of Gatlinburg shopping and attractions, so a little shopping before or after rounds out the day perfectly. Mother’s Day at Melting Pot means a special four-course Mother’s Day dinner with cheese fondue, filet mignon, shrimp and chocolate dessert.

Alamo Steakhouse
You can’t beat a free filet: Moms get a free filet mignon entrée at Alamo from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. on Mother’s Day. With two locations in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Alamo’s outstanding steaks are a Gatlinburg tradition.

Regardless of what you do this Mother’s Day, Gatlinburg has some great options to make mom’s day spectacular.

How are you celebrating Mother’s Day this year?
