After reading the latest review from Gama6 (Nashville, TN) on this amazing lodge, I was astounded! My husband and I have stayed here for years and would NEVER stay anywhere else. The large, spacious rooms, real wood burning fireplaces, complimentary continental breakfast served to your room (can you believe it- homemade doughnuts!) and the private balcony overlooking the river are...

In Sept. 2014, we stayed at the Riverhouse Motor Lodge on River Rd. When we checked in , we were excited to be there and paid no attention to the balance due and just paid them. At the end of our stay, the clerk said that we had one more night to stay. I stated no, that I was to... More

Your advance deposit confirmation(dated 9/25/14) for your Oct. 8-12 stay stated our policy "obligated to all dates reserved". Your bill was for the four nights you reserved. We do not appreciate the unjust accusation that we stole your money. Our goal is to provide the best accommodations and service to our guests and our previous reviews reflect this. Unfortunately, it... More

It is so good to know that there's still a few of these places left. Small family owned motel sits right on the Little Pigeon River. that's very nice and quiet. One of my favorite things is you still use a key to enter your room. Our only testament is that we've stayed in the same room for 15 years.... More

We go to Gatlinburg twice a year and we have tried more then one over the years but this is our favorite. Wood burning fire place, they supply wood and starter, continental breakfast delivered to your room, nothing special here but fine. The balconies are right on the stream and only a short walk to the Main Street. Just walk... More

The wife and I have stayed here several times. Love the location and how it seems hidden when you are sitting on the deck overlooking the creek. The rooms are spacious and nice. The donuts in the morning are good as well just call down to the front office and they will bring them freshly made to your room. We... More

Had never stayed here before although we had been coming to Gatlinburg for many years. This is our go to place for our mountain getaway from now on. Riverhouse is very clean and comfortable. Large rooms that each have balconies overlooking the Little Pigeon River - no mountain views, but peace and serenity of the riverfront balcony makes each room... More

Enjoyed our stay. Easy access to downtown area. Comfortable room. Relaxing hearing the sound of the river from the room, and a great view of the river. Hope to go back soon. Feels like a forever home, and the staff is very friendly.

Ok. We stayed here last weekend for the fall break. We were on the second floor. The room was wonderful!!! We typically stay at the Bearskin Lodge and have for years. We will stay here from now on. The rooms were very spacious and CLEAN!! The decor of the room is perfectly "smoky mountains" with paneling and lighted pictures on... More

This is a medium price motel, but to me is worth it. Have stayed there the last 3 years in Gatlinburg. The rooms are big (the ones with the fireplace) and cleaned every day with clean towels. I have always gotten a good night sleep. Nice private porch over looking what they call a river but to me it is... More

This hotel is awesome very clean and well maintained. I love the interior of the room it gives you the feel of a cabin and has a great fireplace. The view from the balcony of the river is amazing. But the best part of all is the homemade doughnuts delivered to your door
