My husband and I recently took a romantic Christmas getaway in the Great Smokey Mountains. The Best Western River Escape Inn was fabulous! It was perfect! We had a river view, which is a must while staying at this hotel. Our balcony over looked the rolling river and the views were amazing! The little town of Dillsboro and Sylva are charming with lots of shopping and wonderful little cafe's, candy shops and more! It was a wonderful stay and the staff are very accommodating.
