I can't say enough great things about American Patriot Haven (we stayed March 28-April 1). It's the PERFECT size for a group of five or six. Super clean with all the amenities you need (3 real bedrooms with two full baths + 1 half bath and all linens/towels, laundry, a real kitchen fully stocked with dishes and cooking materials, tv in every BR, easy use gas fire place, outside deck with gas grill, a covered car port and more).
A 10-15 minute walk to town makes it so very convenient to access all that Downtown Gatlinburg has to offer (the town itself is a very walkable place and parking is inconvenient as well as at a premium).
We saved so much money by cooking during our stay. The fully stocked kitchen really encourages you to use it and we certainly did. We had intended on eating out more often because the town has some great places to eat, but with a little grocery shopping prior to our trip and a quick stop to Food City, we only ate out once.
I could go on and on. It's simply a great place to stay. If your going to Gatlinburg for the first time, or returning and want to try something new, reserve your spot at APH. You will NOT be disappointed and you won't want to stay anywhere else...we won't, that's for sure. (Be sure to check out our entry in the guest book)
Booking vacation rentals can always be stressful. You can read two dozen reviews and still not be sure what you are getting. I booked for our family from Ohio based off pictures and reviews. I was not disappointed.
There were two couples and my elderly mother.
This home is located just off the busy Parkway. It is indeed 3/4 of a mile from the main drag. We walked it a few times and I used my FitBit to confirm.
It was clean upon arrival. Easy to get to. Easy to GET into. The living room is a bit cozy. More than 5 people could be tight. The red leather couches are divine. Seriously. I want one!
The bedrooms were all fine for our needs. We enjoyed our stay.
Word of caution to any other travelers. All bedrooms are upstairs. My mom had a bit of trouble on the stairs after two hip sugeries. I was constantly worried about her falling. She didnt but just a note if you are traveling with someone who has any kind of mobilitiy issue.
The brook outside is awesome. Loud. And delightful. The fireplace puts out some serious heat! WHEW.
I have no complaints at all about this property. Renee was very easy to work with. Very quick to respond. We loved the house. We loved the location.
This is a wonderful little home in the perfect location. Close enough to walk to Gatlinburg but nestled on Baskins Creek for a little privacy.
My wife and I were looking for a great place to stay that is close to downtown Gatlinburg, but also wanted to avoid having to drive up winding roads into the mountains. We found it. American Patriot Haven was a wonderful find. Close to downtown, but still far enough away to be serene. We loved the fireplace and other amenities!
