We have stayed at Riverhouse every October for over 25 years. Now my niece and her husband come with us for last 5 years. We are so upset over the loss of this unique and beautiful lodge. We were there in October and I took all kinds of pictures of the inside of the room. The artwork, the fireplace, the...

We have stayed here so many times with our kids and grandkids. Was there the night that it burned down. Never thought it might not be there after the fire if we went back. Please rebuild. One of the best motels in Gatlinburg. Friendly staff. Good donuts. Always clean. Just wonderful.

It is such a shame that this lodge burned down. I loved to stay here. The tucked away location on River Rd was quiet, but still close to the businesses. Loved the large rooms with fireplaces and porches. You will be missed if you don't build back.

We would not consider staying elsewhere. Love the cozy, tucked away location, the fireplace, balcony overlooking the river, swimming pool, courteous and helpful staff. Accommodations exceed your expectations and all within walking distance to all downtown has to offer.

We have stayed here off and on for over 30 years; we loved it so much we always asked for the same room with a fireplace. Our last stay was in November 2016 and the fire was only a small one in the Smoky Mountains at that point. The Riverhouse Motor Lodge was a unique, one-of-a-kind, special place. We will...

This is my favorite place to stay in the southeast. We travel this way twice a year and stay here once a year. I think of it as my second home. I hope you rebuild and keep your charm. We love this place, sorry to hear about the fire.
