All Decked Out is no more. It was completely destroyed in the Gatlinburg wildfires on Monday night, November 28. Thankfully, there was nobody at All Decked Out when this happened. We are in the process of refunding money to all future guests who had booked All Decked Out.
At this point, we do not plan to rebuild. We know many people – including our family – have wonderful memories of vacations at All Decked Out. We hope you will cherish those memories as we do.
If you want to go to Gatlinburg and need help finding a place to stay, please contact us. We are part of a group of about 50 other owners who rent out their own cabins. Many of these folks did not lose their cabins and are ready to help you. You can save money by dealing directly with the owner. Please write back to us (click Contact Us above). Give us your arrival and departure dates, the number of people in your party, the number of bedrooms you want, and the best way for these owners to contact you. If you have a preferred location or any special amenities, please pass that along to us as well. Also, note that many of these cabins are pet-friendly.
Some will want to know how badly All Decked Out was damaged. So we are posting a page of pictures. At the top of this page, click on Fire. You will also find pictures of Smoky Mountain Tower, which we sold in February 2015. Unfortunately, it was also destroyed.
We have also left pictures of All Decked Out below for you to enjoy, and we hope to add a few more in the near future.
Denny Spell and his family have stayed at All Decked Out many times during the past 20 years. His daughter even got engaged in Gatlinburg during one of their trips. The Spells spent Thanksgiving weekend at All Decked Out and left Sunday morning, Nov. 27. They were the last people ever stay at All Decked Out.
Below are photos taken by Denny just about 36 hours before the fire. Thank you, Denny, for helping to preserve our memories of All Decked Out.
The photos in order are as follows:
1 – One of the best pictures ever taken of the front of All Decked Out!
2 – Looking down Village Loop Road, on the left side of All Decked Out.
3 – The right side of All Decked Out.
4 – The houses at the end of our private road. As you know, they were all destroyed, too.
