Very nice place to stay. Off the main street. Very large room with fireplace, your choice of gas or wood burning. Large, private balcony over looking the river. Fresh homemade donuts delivered to your door in the morning. Sitting on balcony the sound of the river is so peaceful, as you watch the ducks. Laundry facilities on site. On the... More

We've stayed here a couple times and love it. It's clean, staff members are friendly, doughnuts are yummy! We love the in room jacuzzi and the sound of the river at night. I highly recommend this hidden gem

This is a great lodge. It's reminiscent of the older tourist days of Gatlinburg. With a lot off chain hotel's in the town this is a bit of a more relaxed stay. Granted they don't have all of the bell's and whistles of the Hilton. But the beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean, and the view of the river... More

We found the neast place to come to Gatlinburg from now on. Yes the room is 'out dated' BUT rooms are HUGE and so clean!! My grandma was a maid and I'm very picky and couldn't find one single thing. Nothing. The doughnuts were great and the location.....perfect. LOVE THIS PLACE!

We spent 2 nights at this hotel and will definitely be back! The room was clean and newly remodeled bathroom. The staff were all very friendly and helpful! Great walking access to all downtown Gatlinburg activities! Loved sitting on the balcony overlooking the water! Very peaceful!

We stayed here during a 3 day weekend to the mountains. It was quaint, roomy, and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly. They serve you homemade doughnuts for breakfast in your room! We had a balcony that overlooked the river. AND we were right in town-walking distance to everything local.

Stayed for 8 days in July 2016. Have stayed here multiple times in the past including our honeymoon 16 years ago. Have never had a bad stay. Rooms are large and always clean. Love the shower heads! Feels like a water fall. They make donuts each morning and bring them to your room, all included with room price. Also like... More

I hesitate to say, but this is our favorite place to stay. It may be dated, but so what...my house is dated. It's solid. I like the quiet, peaceful location. It's close to downtown, an easy walk to everywhere, but across the river, which provides white noise to make everything quiet. Been staying here for years.
