This is probably the 4th time we've stayed at RiverStone. I have to start with WOW!! We love staying here when we visit because we know that at the end of each day we will be coming home to a beautiful well maintained home. We rented off of VRBO last time and that wasn't as pleasant because you get no support from the onsite staff. This time around check in / out were a breeze and we had one small issue in the bath that was taken care of immediately while we were away at Dollywood.
The condo itself is plush and roomy. Big comfy couches, thick mattresses, flat screen TV's, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The living room and master bedroom share a covered porch overlooking beautiful manicured greens of the local golf course. The resort is situated right in the edge of Pigeon Forge near the parkway going up to Gatlinburg. Walking distance to both the Dixie Stampede and Krispy Kreme - two of our favorite night time activities!!
We paid around 400 for two nights including taxes and cleaning. For us we always need two hotel rooms when we travel so this is a great deal.
Finally - you can rent these condos on VRBO.com or directly through the resort. My advice? Go through the resort. If you rent off of VRBO.com and you have trouble with your condo - help is not close. Last time we did this we got there at 10pm and the room wouldn't open. The onsite staff will not help you if you do not go through them for the unit.
So - bottom line - rent through the resort and you'll have a wonderful experience.
