Shuttle Bus to Transport Folks Between Gatlinburg, TN and Cherokee, NC

Last week the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians unveiled a plan to operate a biodiesel shuttle bus between Cherokee, NC and Gatliinburg, TN.This will allow people of all ages who don’t like to drive to extend their Gatlinburg Vacation to a trip to Cherokee, or vice versa. There is a wide range of people who don’t like to drive, especially through the winding mountain roads that make up the trip through North Carolina into Gatlinburg, TN. The bus takes the trip to Gatlinburg through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park up Highway 441 and makes a 10 minute stop at the Newfound Gap Overlook for pictures.    

One of the best things about this new shuttle bus is the affordability. For adults it costs $12 for a round trip, or just $7 for a one way trip. With gas costing nearly three dollars per gallon in many places this is very cheap! For seniors or groups of three or more the cost is only $10 for the round trip. The shuttle is operated 7 days a week between May and December and then just Friday through Monday with a limited schedule the rest of the year. For more information about where the “bus stops” are call 828.497.5296.

Gatlinburg Hotel: Eight Gables Inn

There was an interesting article found at The Enquirer’s website at Cincinatti.com written by Pama Mitchell describing the Eight Gables Inn in Gatlinburg. The article talked about the “tackiness” and commercialism of most of Gatliburg and Pigeon Forge including the neon signs for restaurants, shows, shops, outlets, wedding chapels, and much more. There’s definitely a lot going on in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, but when it’s time to call it a night and head back to your hotel or cabin you want to be able to get away from things and have a nice relaxing night. There are a lot of Gatlinburg chalets and cabins and hotels where you can get away from things and one of those is the Eight Gables Inn in Gatlinburg.

The Eight Gables Inn features 19 rooms which all include private baths, cable television, plush bathrobes, feather-top beds and there are candle-light dinners served on Tuesdays, Thurdays, and Saturdays. Included in the room rate is a full breakfast every morning. The Eight Gables Inn is only about one mile and just a couple of minutes from the main drag in Gatlinburg so you won’t be far from the action and all of the great restraurants and shows in Gatlinburg.

Some of the rooms have whirlpool tubs and there is a massage therapist on site to rub out that stress. The room rates range from around $140 up to $270 per night during the busy season for the nicest suites at the Eight Gables Inn.
