    It was closed when I went through a few months back. Nice to see it re-opened - but at the end of the season?

    Yeah, October is a busy time in the Smokies...

    There used to be these things called AAA Tour Guide books (back in the days BEFORE the internet).
    Each book would cover a general area, and it would list the various AAA approved hotels in the area and list price ranges for the hotel across different "seasons" for the hotel.
    The book that included Gatlinburg basically listed "October" as a season, and the prices were usually the highest during that season compared to any other time of the year.

    Has it been opened by the same ownership/management, or someone new? If memory serves, the resort closed in the spring, and they said they were basically giving up, presumably for financial reasons. Undoubtedly somewhat related to Covid-19 but it sounded permanent.
