“Peaceful on the River....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2005

EXCELLENT! We stumbled on this gem a few weekends ago - it is not fancy but reminds me of cabin stays of my youth. The porch off the back overlooks the rushing river, the sounds when you are drifting off to sleep are wonderful. Tiny bathrooms - but everything you need for a peaceful night's sleep is right there! Close to Harrahs Cherokee...a great place-
thanks Bob! (PS - if the end unit is available ask for it!)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2004

This was like a step back in time. The place was so peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed sitting outside our room and looking down at the river. We watched a river otter play and saw some squirrels and watched some birds. Such a relaxing sort of place away from the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg.

We would reccommend it to anyone looking for a nice quiet place to stay. It was wonderful to be so close to the train depot for our train ride the next morning.

This place is not fancy but has everything you need including a coffee pot in your room. If you love nature and its splendor, we think you would enjoy this place.

Our church group has had the pleasure of spending a weekend at Lloyd's On the River for several years now. Strategically placed on the banks of the lovely Oconaluftee River, Lloyd's has lots to offer. This reasonably priced motel has picnic tables and charcoal grills available for it's guests to enjoy a cookout on the riverbanks. It's also just a short drive to exciting white-water rafting, challenging walking and biking trails, and leisure shopping in nearby Bryson City. Very highly recommended. Call Bob for a reservation and tell him I sent you!
