The fires have mostly been extinguished and the City of Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will reopen to the public on Friday, December 9.
Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will welcome visitors once again and some sense of normalcy will return to the many lives which have been turned upside down by this tragic event. We too are back to work. Cleaning and Maintaining cabins, clearing downed trees and other debris to allow for the safe travel of our guests, even checking ont he status of cabins for property owners who can't get information from their management companies. Sadly, there were many private homes and rental cabins which were lost to the fires, but making things worse for those property owners is the management company they've been using isn't communicating with those owners and giving them answers.
Although we do have our own work to do, and plenty of it, we will always do our best to help our neighbors, our friends in their time of need. While some rental companies are making self promoting and very misleading videos about the damage caused by the fires, we're doing our the work which must be done to ensure the safety of guests, and protecting the investments of our cabin owners.
If you have are thinking of visiting the area and have questions, if you're a property owner and haven't yet been given any information about the condition of your property and would like for us to go check on your property for you, please feel free to contact our office and we will do all we can to assist you in any way possible. Working together, helping each other, and communicating is what will get us all through this as quickly as possible and get everyone's lives back to normal.
