We stayed at the Stone Hill Lodge, which is not connected to the main lodge and indoor waterpark. We thought it would be easy to walk across the street, but it is not. There are elevation changes, and no convenient direct sidewalk or way to get there without walking a few blocks, effectively. (in your bathing suit!) Luckily, we had excellent weather and didn't mind taking the shuttle. It does come by often.
This resort and waterpark are MUCH smaller than the Dells property of the same name. No lazy river here (at least not indoors/in fall and winter months). It's definitely geared more towards families with small children. Hours were minimal, you basically had to go off-site to get food, etc. (again, just different from the Dells one that has restaurants).
However, it is in the heart of Sevierville and food and entertainment options abound nearby. We had a great time visiting the Gatlinburg area and the resort wasn't too expensive so we would consider staying there again.
In the area there are some beautiful cabin rentals - the Wilderness property did not have beautiful views.
Our unit was nice, and we did have a fridge, balcony, etc. which were nice amenities to have.
Watch out for the time share people - if you need to park your car, they won't give you the parking pass until they pitch their Windham timeshares at you! I hate this, why do they do this to us? It's really a turnoff.
