Hotels with Indoor Pools From Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge

America’s favorite vacation destination?

Americans love a little Tennessee, particularly the sweet spot north of the Smokies. Ranking on our trivago’s most searched for destination lists year after year, both towns make for the perfect family getaway.

The cherry on the cake for hotels in this region? Plenty of pool time no matter what the season. Here are our picks for family-friendly hotels with indoor pools from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge

The Park Vista Gatlinburg

The next best thing to a pool in a hotel? A room with a view. At the Park Vista hotel, each guestroom has its own balcony with many overlooking the summits of the Great Smoky Mountains. Instead of dropping the bags, riffling through for swimsuits and jumping in the indoor pool, steer the kids outside for a glance over their temporary kingdom. Other features families will appreciate include the games arcade, the playground and the kids only menu at the two onsite restaurants.
