Gatlinburg, Tennessee, is Beautiful as Ever – Come for a Visit!

Despite what you might have heard following the wildfires last year and this past week, Gatlinburg, Tennessee, is more beautiful than ever. Spring has sprung and there’s no better way to get up close to Gatlinburg’s natural beauty than staying in one of our rustic-modern cabins or condos.

White Oak Lodge and Resort fortunately did not sustain any damage from the wildfires. The resort is open for business and vibrant as ever. Now that the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is open for the season, we encourage you to come for a visit. You’ll find natural beauty is everywhere.

Just look at this shot of the Goshen Prong Trail, taken a few weeks ago.
