Millions of people drive past its entrance every summer, but never know it is there – and that is completely intentional. Nestled on a forested mountainside, Westgate Smoky Mountain Resort & Spa gives visitors the things they come to the mountains for; breathtaking panoramic mountain views, peace, quiet, relaxation, luxurious rooms, fine dining and every conceivable amenity for the whole family.
Already the largest resort in the entire Smoky Mountain Region, Westgate Smoky Mountain Resort and Spa is nearing completion on an additional four-story, multi-million dollar building with 72 new villas ranging in size from 300 square feet to 3,200 square feet five-bedroom villas. The expansion gives Westgate nearly 200 more available places to stay than its second-largest competitor. The resort is also home to the largest indoor waterpark in the Smokies.
While the Great Smoky Mountains have become the most visited national park in the nation with nearly 11 million annual visitors, guests often find that the surrounding resort towns are nothing like the actual park they came to see. At Westgate Smoky Mountain Resort & Spa, that serene mountain experience doesn’t end when you leave the park. All of the noise, traffic, neon signs and attractions fade in the distance as Westgate visitors turn onto its property and head up the mountainside. Just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Westgate brings all of the majesty and serenity of the Smokies to its guests, who are literally staying in the mountains.
Even though Westgate Smoky Mountain Resort & Spa guests are just minutes away from all of the shows, attractions, restaurants, shopping and activities the Smoky Mountain Region has to offer, many find that the best way to experience the Smokies is to never leave the Westgate property. In addition to its world class spa, numerous restaurants and eateries, ice cream shop, unbelievable award-winning villas and outdoor pools and play areas, Westgate also has the largest indoor water park in all of East Tennessee, Wild Bear Falls.
Within a one-day drive of most of the Eastern United States, Westgate Smoky Mountain Resort offers a perfect weekend escape for your family in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. For more information, visit www.WGSmokyMountains.com or call (877) 819-4028.
