“Loved this place”
Reviewed March 26, 2011

We chose this place based on reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed! The room was fabulous & the fireplace was toasty when it got cold out. The hotel is a short walk to the main strip but there is a footpath behind the hotel that carries you over a beautiful creek & right to the Smoky Mountain Brewery & Calhoun's.
Within 30 minutes of checking in, a worker came by to see how we were doing and to see if we had any questions and to let us know of different things about the room.
The only issues we had were that the key card would not always open the door and the fan rattled at times when we were trying to sleep. However, we did not bring this to the hotel's attention.
The hotel is a little high compared to other hotels in the area, especially for someone on a budget, but it is a beautiful place to stay.

The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The room was very clean and the kitchen appliances looked like they were brand new! Our only 2 complaints were that the bathtub was lovely but the shower head could be more powerful/higher. And there could be a shade that goes over the blinds because if you like to sleep in like we do the sun creeps in. Other then that everything was perfect and we can't wait to stay again!

We were in awe about the room. Very clean wth 2 bathrooms. Easy acces to downtown.
We needed a nice vacation and this fit the bill. We will recommed to our families. Which they are coming up in October. I love the fireplace with auto timer on it. The jaccuzi being right in the master bedroom was lovely. Washer and dryer were a plus. Full size kitchen and hugh table to eat dinner at. View over Gatlingburg was a plus too. I can't really say anything bad about it. We were treated very good. The staff was awesome. It's a great place for family or a family to take a break and get that fresh mountain air...

The Condo for no hotel is this adequately furnished. It was a beautiful 2 bedroom with a fireplace (THAT WORKED), Ceiling fans throughout, the guest room had a queen and a full size bed and if necessary the sofa, although you would not have know it by sitting on it, was a queen sleeper. The kitchen was furnished with enough dishes and flatware for 8. Everything was clean. There were plenty of paper products and sufficient towels for a weeks stay. The staff was friendly and willing to help in any way they could. The ceiling fans worked exactly as they should, we didn't use the whirpool tub but it was clean and there was never any shortage of hot water. The indoor pool was cloudy and had to much chlorine in it.

My family and I stayed in a two bedroom suite, the beginning of March. The staff were very nice and helpful. This is the only place my family wants to stay when visiting Gatlinburg. The location is very convenient, close to the main strip but also far enough that you dont hear all the noise.
We decided in the middle of our stay that we wanted to add two additional nights to our stay. The manager was very helpful in arranging it for us.
The rooms are stocked with everything you will need.
I highly recommend this resort. We loved our stay.

My husband and I were needing a quick get weekend getaway, and this was prefect. The front desk staff were great, and so helpful in every way. They recommend place to eat, things to do. Check in was quick and easy, the room was better than we ever thought a room away from home could be. It was clean, smelled nice as you walked in and the bed was quite comfy. Was in a good location that we never had to get in our vechicle to go anywhere else all was with in walking distance or a trolly ride which you could catch right out in front
