Review Of Carr’s Northside Cottages & Motel

Often finding a place to stay at in Gatlinburg is a major chore because the city literally has 80 plus hotels in a little strip. This does not include the campgrounds or cabins that are available for people to select from either. So this is why it is so important we are providing the information you need to locate the best hotel possible. In this outing, it is fairly obvious we are going to be talking about Carr’s Northside Cottages and Motel. However, this is a location that does not allow for booking on some of the major retail sites, so it is also a little bit harder to find, but that could be what makes this location so nice. Either way, this is a family owned location and one that takes quite a bit of pride in the way they are running the location.

Location Of Carr’s Northside Cottages & Motel

The address for Carr’s is listed below as are the directions that we normally post.

421 Laurel Road West 

Gatlinburg, TN 37738

To reach this location, you will want to turn left onto East Parkway if you are coming from Pigeon Forge . This road will start to go up the hill and is generally seen as a big Y intersection before you reach the aquarium. When you tart up the hill you see Poplar Lane shooting off to the left and you will want to turn on the road. You then go up this road for a short distance and West Laurel Road shoots off to the right with the location on the left hand side.
