Build memories at the grand lady of Gatlinburg, the Brookside Resort. Less than a mile from the resort you will find Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies where you can immerse yourself with colorful sea creatures as the moving walkway effortlessly carries you through the underwater tunnel. Awaken every morning to the complimentary farm fresh breakfast buffet with eggs, waffles, biscuits and gravy, and more. Enjoy not one, but two outdoor pools featuring a water slide that the children will love!
Your balcony lures you to sit a spell with that book that you've been wanting to read while being soothed by the sound of splashing creek waters. Later you can stretch by walking the resort grounds, photographing the covered bridges and gardens, or take a stroll to see the beautiful eight-foot waterfall featured on the property. After a long day of adventure relax and soak in the hot tub then sit out by the wood fire to dry off before heading back to your room.
Popular attractions a mile away include Anakeesta Theme Park and Ripley's Believe It or Not!. Also within one mile of the Brookside Resort are the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tram and the Gatlinburg Sky Lift that will give you birds-eye views of this picturesque area. The nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park also beckons with wildflowers, rivers, trails and countless waterfalls. At the resort you can hit the basketball, volleyball, and shuffleboard courts or the fitness center for a quick workout. There are also BBQ picnic grounds on-site available for your use.
