Spring Is Just Around the Corner – We Promise!

And we thought the Winter blasts of last year was bad! We didn’t quite get as much of the brunt of the atmospheric mess, but a lot of our neighbors up North and out West did. We know you’re looking forward to the return of warmer weathers, brighter skies and colorful expanses of nature more than we are, and Deer Ridge is committed to helping you get what you seek.

To make that happen, we are offering a slew of specials and discounts for March and April. Here’s a few of them:















And we also have these vacation packages that would be perfect for March and April:

* Romantic Getaway Package
* Birdie Getaway Package
* Horseback Riding Package
* Zipline Getaway Package
* Girlfriend Getaway Package

Happy Veteran’s Day 2014

Veteran’s Day is an important day to us here at Deer Ridge. Many of our staff have family or other significant connections who have served and sacrificed for our country by joining the armed forces, and it means as much for us to be able to celebrate the freedom they won us as it does you.

Deer Ridge therefore strives to make sure our military men and women are appreciated back home by offering the BEST military discount in East Tennessee – 27% off all our condos and cabins. No “ifs”, “ands” or “buts”, we just need to see your military ID to confirm and you and your guests are set to go!

See more on our military special at www.deerridge.com.

Oktoberfest 2014 Pictures

Deer Ridge held its 14th annual Oktoberfest event on every Saturday during the month of October. Guests and owners alike enjoyed wonderful bluegrass music, great food & drink and of course the Best View in the Smokies.


Davis Vow Renewal

Meyer and Jane Davis were married and honeymooned at Deer Ridge 20 years ago almost to the day. 3 months ago Jane Davis called Joe Thomas requesting help planning a vow renewal and 4 night romantic getaway. Jane and Joe worked together and planned a wonderful vow renewal ceremony on the Deer Ridge Sundeck and reception in our new Lobby Lounge.  Jeff Ownby was the presiding minster during the vow renewal which took place on October 18, 2014 .


The Deer of Deer Ridge

Some of our local critters stopped by for a visit!

It’s Not Too Early To Think About Winterfest!

Winterfest is a season of the Smoky Mountains that is, for all practical purposes, split into two sections – the Holiday season, and the “quiet” season.

The former is quite obvious – from early November to New Years day, the Smoky Mountains are in full swing celebration mode to bring families closer to the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years spirits (along with everything in between). We have several parades, one for each city in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville, Dollywood transforms their entire park into a literal Winter wonderland, million-dollar lighting displays are put up throughout the cities, community choral events, holiday theater performances, and so many more special events, it would take years of repeated visits to see them all!

The latter refers to the after-holiday season that begins after the festivities. Naturally, after two months of solid special event planning, the area goes on an unofficial break period until March. Dollywood and the major special events go on hiatus, many of the arts and crafts and several other mainstream businesses around close for the season, and we see a marked reduction in traffic.

While it sounds like there isn’t much to do in that part of Winterfest, it’s a unique time for a unique atmosphere in the Smokies. We have several occasions throughout the year reserved for reflection, but this is the time it really comes alive. The cold air, the snow-peaked tops in the distance, and the stillness of the environment really create an air of dignity and a simple beauty you almost can’t get at any other time. It’s a great time to be hiking, planning a honeymoon weekend in Gatlinburg, or even breaking out the snowboard for nearby Ober Gatlinburg’s Winter Sports season as well.

At Deer Ridge, we don’t take a vacation, we work year-round to provide you with yours. Whether you come to the Smokies for a Christmas or Thanksgiving filled outing for the family, a chance to take advantage of the romantic qualities the Smokies offers in February, a weekend to get in the snowboarding and skiing up at Ober, Deer Ridge will accommodate all your wants and needs. We’re just 15-20 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, 30 minutes from Pigeon Forge, and 10 minutes from the newly opened Rocky Top Sports World.
