Husband and I arrived after getting recommendation from Travel/Information Center. Hotel staff gave us directions and stayed on phone until we located the place. Very nice hotel with larger room. Comfortable bed and pillows. Very quiet. River beside hotel, very calming.

Room was clean homey. Wall art was taken by owner of local points of interest and just beautiful. He recommended places to eat and may I say they were great. I would definitely be a repeat customer. Sitting by the river is just so relaxing. We took the Great Smokey Train ride

we had a king room ,it was clean and comfortable. and the setting where you can set outside your door on the river is great. it was raining during our stay but even with the rise in the river it came no where close to flooding the motel grounds

Very nice location. Enough space to bbq and people are friendly. Rooms are okay. Rooms could be cleaned better, especially under the bed and the chair. Under the chair we found items from probably the persons before us.

We spent 2 nights here on vacation and it was amazing! Small and intimate and right on the river. Chairs set up outside so you can sit and enjoy nature at it's best! The owner came out and visited with us. We will definitely stay here again!

What type of handicap if I may ask? The rooms are on one level so easy to get it, however the bathroom was small so not sure the shower would be good for wheelchair. You could by all means call as the location is family owned and they were super nice!
