I had never seen Gatlinburg during Christmas season. Love holiday lights so booked a trip with my dad, (who also loves Christmas lights!). Unfortunately, our stay was slated to begin the day the Chimney Tops 2 fire swept down to Gatlinburg. Wyndham allowed me to reschedule our stay at the Baskins Creek Complex. The condo is very clean, cute bear themed decorations, stocked with basics and very accessible to downtown Gatlinburg. (#6) Most of all I would like everyone to know that despite the horrible destruction the main Gatlinburg drag, as well as Pigeon Forge is just as wonderful and fun as you remember. And although there are scattered traces of the fire as you drive thru the park it is not very obvious at all on the main drag. (Chimney Tops trailhead is closed). I think the people of the mountains of East Tennessee would most appreciate if all the tourists return and spend money. This is the best way to help them get back on their feet. The view off our balcony overlooked a small burned out apartment complex(I think thats what it was) but they are working on cleaning everything up. Baskins Creek is great and I would absolutely book another stay!
