Found this place in May of 2015, we have been back four times since, very nice quiet little place and has lots of things for the kids to do. Every room we have stayed in has been great. You really can't beat it for the price. We are very pleased and will obviously be back!

My family and I absolutely loved this motel. We stayed in room 201 of the motel section which is one of the smallest rooms they offer. There was plenty of room for my family of four (two adults, a 9yo and a 4yo). The price was an incredible deal for the location and the property itself which is only about... More

Very nice place to stay. Everyone in the office was very polite and helpful. They try to make you feel welcomed. The place is a little outdated, but for the most part it was very nice. It is very clean. There is a fire place not sure how well it works, because we didn't use it, there's a kitchen equipped... More

We were originally looking to rent a cabin in Gatlinburg for a last minute, overnight stay. Since it was such short notice I couldn't really find anything and didn't have time to research many places. I came across this property and it looked nice, so I called and they had a cottage available so I went ahead and reserved it.... More

The cabins are located fairly close to the main thorough fare. They are older and a fairly good value. Some overlook the creek and others are just scattered throughout. There are some that are old and dated and others that are a little better. Most need new carpet. We stayed in an older one on the creek and we stayed... More

Great location. Watched the July 4 parade. Loved the porch by the stream. Rooms are extremely outdated, but very clean. Very crowded. Rude families in the hot tub and pool the ENTIRE time we were there. My kids could not swim due do the teenage boys having a cannonball contest. Air conditioner worked great. Beds were ok. Room had a... More
