After looking at several websites for mountain home rentals...I became overwhelmed! I then found a website for RiverStone resort...I thoroughly checked out the website AND the reviews on tripadvisor and decided THIS was the place for our family vacation! The price was pretty decent, we booked a 4br/4bath condo that overlooked the golf course. After booking, I had found a discount code on the internet and called to apply that to our trip...after first speaking with a male who wouldn't hear of it, I called back the next day to speak to a different person who applied the 20% discount to our stay with no problems (persistence, my friends...lol) When we checked in, I anticipated our room wouldn't be ready until 4pm (if you read the other reviews...this was a common topic...turned out to be very true) In actuality our room wasn't even ready at 4pm we still had to wait another 20 minutes. BUT after all that, we got to our room....WHICH WAS BEAUTIFUL!!!! The photos on the website are totally accurate, in fact...they don't even do it justice! The master bedroom/bathroom was very luxurious! The lazy river was awesome, indoor pool was very clean! (FYI though: if you are elderly or have knee problems, you WILL have trouble getting in the hot tub at the pool!! There is literally only one step to get in and it is a very steep step...so if you are looking forward to the hot tub...I hate to burst your bubble, but you might have major problems getting in and out!) The stream/river next to the lazy river is beautiful! This hotel/condo rental is not too far from all your major attractions. Since this is a condo rental, there is no maid service (although I did see something in the resort directory that housekeeping could be made available for a daily fee) However, anytime anyone in our room needed assistance or extra toilet paper/toiletries we just called the front desk and had no problems getting what we needed, also they were very helpful with any questions we had about the area or attractions! I would certainly stay here again! I WOULD recommend it to anyone but would tell you...don't expect to check in before 4 (and also check out is at 10...not 11 like most places) It was beautiful, clean and luxurious! I doubt you'd regret it if you stayed here! (AND WHEN IN PIGEON FORGE, YOU MUST CHECK OUT MOUNTAIN VALLEY WINERY!! LOVES IT! LOL)
