Everything You Need to Know to Book a Stay at Eggo's House of Pancakes

Guests can book three-day stays at the flapjack-inspired, four-bedroom house starting February 28 which, fittingly, is National Pancake Day.



IHOP’s full name might be the International House of Pancakes, but the chain tends to frown on its guests staying for a full weekend: It doesn’t provide bath towels, and asking if you can light the fire pit is a good way to be escorted out of the restaurant. But if you’ve ever wanted to experience an actual House of Pancakes, then Eggo has exactly what you’re looking for.

Eggo recently announced that it apparently has a real-life pancake house in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, one with a chimney that looks like a stick of butter and a roofline that appears to have been liberally drizzled with syrup. The Eggo House of Pancakes isn’t just for show, either: The cozy cabin is available to book exclusively through the HomeToGo vacation rental platform.

"Eggo and waffles are an iconic combination, so much so that fans might forget about our pancakes, Joe Beauprez, the Senior Director of Marketing for Frozen Foods at Kellanova, said in a statement. “Plus, we know that planning a family vacation can be chaotic, so we're helping parents check one more thing off their to-do list for spring break season with this deliciously fun house."

If you’ve always wished you could sleep in a bedroom that makes you feel like you’re overnighting in an Eggo factory, then you have four chances to turn that carb-heavy dream into reality. The Eggo House of Pancakes will start taking booking requests at 12 p.m. EST on Wednesday, February 28 which, fittingly, is National Pancake Day. Potential guests who submit a booking request on the House of Pancakes page on HomeToGo will receive a confirmation email, Eggo will review those requests, and the lucky travelers will be confirmed “on a first-come, first-served basis” according to a press release.



Booking requests submitted on February 28 will be for a three-night stay from Thursday, March 7 through Sunday, March 10. At 12 p.m. EST on Monday, March 4, the HomeToGo site will accept booking requests for stays between Thursday, March 14 and Sunday, March 17. Another round of booking requests will open at 12 p.m. EST on Monday, March 11 for stays from Thursday, March 21 through Sunday, March 24. And the final bookings will be accepted starting at 12 p.m. EST on Monday, March 18 for an Easter weekend trip between Thursday, March 28 and Sunday, March 31. 

The cost of the three-night stay is $0, and the House of Pancakes can accommodate up to eight guests (although all eight of you will be responsible for your own travel to and from Gatlinburg). In addition to an ultra-Instagrammable exterior, the house’s amenities include a hot tub, a basement game room with an Eggo-inspired pool table, a fire pit, a maple syrup fountain, and a freezer filled with all the Eggo pancakes you could possibly want.

Eggo has made itself at home in eastern Tennessee in recent years. In 2022, it partnered with Gatlinburg’s own Sugarlands Distilling Co. to release Eggo Nog, a rum-based “Sippin’ Cream” inspired by its own frozen waffles. (Sorry kids, that one’s for adults only). Last year, the two companies teamed up again for Eggo Brunch in a Jar, which combined the flavors of Eggo waffles, bacon slices, and maple syrup into a second, more savory Sippin’ Cream. 

Best of luck to everyone who wants to book the Eggo House of Pancakes. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck taking your sleeping bag to IHOP. Again.
