Zoder’s Inn, the Resort
One resort Gatlinburg has had for a long time is Zoder’s Inn and Suites. Wallace and Dorotha Zoder moved to Gatlinburg from Louisiana before there was a National Park. When they started renting out cottages to the few tourists who came to the mountains in the 40s and 50s, little did they know how busy this town was going to become.
Wallace and Dorotha did not see the arrival of www.zoders.com or our different social media channels. However, their dedication to hospitality lives on. Their staff, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren take pride in offering tourists a home away from home.
