Soothing Mountain Scenery

In the foothills of the Smoky Mountains National Park lies Bluegreen's Laurel Crest, a cozy country haven less than a mile from the action of Pigeon Forge, but far enough away to offer rest and relaxation. You will feel ensconced by nature with the mountainous backdrop and beautifully landscaped grounds. Take in snow-capped mountain views from one of the two outdoor hot tubs or grab the binoculars for some bird watching from the wraparound clubhouse deck. There are plenty of seasonally themed activities too. From pool parties in the summer to holiday parties, there are numerous activities for kids year-round. While they’re at the playground or in the game room, you can bury yourself in a book in the reading lounge, swim some laps in the indoor pool or work up a sweat in the fitness center and sauna.

Head into town for a day of exploring, bumper boats and musicals. If you’re at a loss to sort out where to go and what to do, our resort staff will help you with a vacation planning hour held every Monday. One popular suggestion: leave your car and explore the area by trolley.

Dazzling Amenities

  • After a day of excitement, kick back and relax in a comfy one- or two-bedroom villa. Watch your favorite movie on DVD. Grab a snack from the refrigerator or prepare a meal in your kitchen.
  • End the day by taking in snow-capped mountain views from the comfort of your very own whirlpool tub and balcony terrace, or relax in front of the cozy fireplace.

Additional fees may apply for select resort amenities and activities.
