Pulled up and enquired for a room for 1 night, chap on counter was friendly and offered us a good rate. Room was to a good standard and had a fridge and microwave. Would stay here again if in the area.

This was our first visit to Gatlinburg and we selected the perfect place to stay. As they say: "location..location..location". The Riverhouse Motor Lodge is located on a mountain stream and tucked away along the trees to where you feel like you are in a secluded mountain lodge It also is only a short walk (a block) from the heart of...

Last year, on our third trip to Gatlinburg, we "inspected" several hotels that had good ratings, to choose one for this years visit. We chose the Riverhouse Motor Lodge, and it is exactly what we were looking for. It is very clean, the room layout is perfect, the staff is friendly, and the location can't be beat! We walk across...

The place was very clean! The bathroom had mirrors on two side. which was nice when getting ready to go out. Was within walking distance from everything. When you set out on the balcony it doesn't feel like you are in town.

Riverhouse is located just off the parkway in downtown Gatlinburg yet is very quiet and secluded. Each room has a private balcony overlooking a gorgeous mointain stream. All the rooms are enormous but be sure to have a fireplace room when in season. Walking distance to the whole town and you don't have to worry about parking. A true hidden... More

I love River House Motor Lodge. I have been staying here since the 70's. Beautiful and cozy views from the balcony. Close to town, very short walk to restaurants and attractions. Love the doughnuts and juice brought to the room in the am. Look forward to going again.

This is a wonderful Place to stay. I was here 20 years ago and was glad to see after all that time and all of the changes to Gatlinburg, the Riverhouse was still here. People were very friendly Room was great. We had a balcony overlooking the river, Whirlpool tub, and fireplace in our room. The breakfast was better than... More

We have stayed several places in town and this is always our favorite. The in room continental breakfast is awesome. Our kids feed the animals on the porch. It's always super clean. We have been fortunate enough to stay at the Ritz Carlton in several countries and we love The Riverhouse. Don't miss it and you will not be disappointed.
