In the foothills of the Smoky Mountains lies Laurel Crest, a cozy country haven less than a mile from the action of Pigeon Forge, but far enough away to offer rest and relaxation. You will feel ensconced by nature with the mountainous backdrop and beautifully landscaped grounds.

Take in snow-capped mountain views from one of the two outdoor hot tubs or grab the binoculars for some bird watching from the wraparound clubhouse deck. You can do the same from the comfort of your vacation home, as each vacation home has its own whirlpool tub and balcony terrace.

If you prefer to stay on site instead of going into town, there are numerous activities for kids year-round, from pool parties in the summer to theme parties for the holidays. While the kids are keeping busy at the playground or in the game room, you can bury yourself in a book in the reading lounge, swim some laps in the indoor pool or work up a sweat in the fitness center and sauna.

If you're at a loss to sort out where to go and what to do, our resort staff will help you with a vacation planning hour held every Monday. One popular suggestion: leave your car and explore the area by trolley.
