“Perfect location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We had a room overlooking the river and it was wonderful! The sounds of the rushing water was the perfect lullaby for a great nights sleep. The room was spacious with two loveseats for relaxing. It's just outside the park so it's a perfect location to walk to Sugarlands Visitors Center if you wish or stroll down the streets of Gatlinburg. After a day of hiking, the jetted tub or long hot shower (with the best water pressure around) is the perfect way to conclude a long tiring day. The mattress could have been replaced but all in all we would return in a heartbeat and in fact we have stayed there several times and not been disappointed. Oh yes! Don't forget to order the orange juice and donuts for breakfast...they bring them to your room and are excellent.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We had a very spacious room overlooking the waterfall. Extremely quiet and relaxing. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the bathroom was always cold since the sink and counter blocked the heat from reaching it. Would still stay again-I would just bring bedroom slippers! Really enjoyed having FRESH homemade donuts delivered TO THE ROOM each morning. Delicious!!

We love coming to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park and staying at the Riverhouse lodge. The staff is friendly and responsive to our needs, and being next to that wonderful flowing stream, the fireplace, and the easy access to the main street through town make it the perfect location for our vacation. We always want to come back every year.

Room Tip: Try to get near room 20.

Upon check-in, the gentleman was very nice and a welcoming office. The room is spacious and inviting. The decor is dated, but the bed was very comfortable, nice television, balcony overlooking the Little Pigeon Forge, and all was very clean. Clean sheets were put on the bed everyday. The whirlpool tub relaxes away all the walking done. Its location is perfect. Out of town enough that you don't get busy car and pedestrian noise, but a short walk to the shops and diners. We absolutely loved our stay and recommend to everyone

Nothing like waking up in Gatlinburg and dialing for a great breakfast delivered to your door: coffee, juice, HOMEMADE DONUTS, or toast. The rooms are extra large with huge fireplaces and balconies over the river. Very clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent. In the summer, a room facing the pool area is more convenient. Love t...

We stay at Riverhouse at the Park several times a year and have been doing so for many years. While there are newer hotels all around, there is no other place for us. We love the corner suites with the huge living/kitchen area, the bedroom with the king size bed and the huge bathroom that has a great shower and a wonderful tub, not to mention the dressing area with all the drawer space. And then there's the wonderful little breakfast that's delivered to your door - coffee, juice, toast and those awesome donuts!! Enough said!!!

We have stayed at Riverhouse at the Park numerous times over the last two years. The rooms are HUGE and we love that with a quick phone call in the mornings, we have juice, coffee, homemade doughnuts or toast within moments. The front desk staff is always more than friendly and we love how helpful they always are when we have a question. We love having a balcony overlooking the river. The only thing I wish they would add are screen doors to the balconies so we can leave the door open to hear the Pigeon River each evening while we are in our room. The trolley stop is right across the street for easy access or it is an easy one block walk to the shops and attractions. We will continue to stay here for each of our visits to Gatlinburg when we are not looking for a cabin! We even just booked a room for two weeks this summer!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room on the river!
