We have just returned from a week at this resort.
The resort is older, but the upkeep of it was great! We had a one bedroom with fold out sofa sleeper. The unit was smaller that we expected, but was very clean and up-to-date. Everything in the room was nice, and worked good. The only complaints we have are: the water pressure in the shower was about like our camper-- little to none!
The pools are way too small! Even though our child loved them, I thought they needed to be a lot bigger.
The view from out third floor balcony was unbelieveable!!! It was one of the best views we have ever had. The Great Smokey Mountains was in its full glory.
One night they had their guest relations building burn down. The building was only being used as storage, but still it was a very dramatic event for us to watch. We stayed on the balcony for over an hour (3:15am!!) and watched the wonderful firemen doing their jobs.
The Smokeys are a sight to see. We did a lot of driving and hiking and were very taken with the place. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg we could have missed and not noticed (or cared).
We had to go to Dollywood and Splash Country for the child. She loved them, but my hubby and I could have passed.
The resort was sold as a smoking resort, and I had read that in the past. We are very cautious with the smell of smoke, but we never smelled anything.
The location of the resort first seemed kind of weird, but after we had been there a while, we enjoyed the location. It is back in a residential area, but that means away from the crowds.
