Every once in a while someone booking a two night stay at our Gatlinburg area  Bed and Breakfast will ask if there is something to keep them busy for that length of time. Jeepers! Just skip to Day Thirteen on the list! Some folks may want to shop for a week; others want to hike for a week. I can help you with both. My second year in business a caller wanted to book a two-week getaway. I was afraid they would be bored and talked her out of it. What was I thinking! She ended up booking 11 days and since has become our most frequent repeat guest. So, ten years later, she was right, I was wrong, and this 18-day itinerary, with a little variety to give it spice, is a tribute to her and all my guests who have fallen in love with the Smokies.
