We are a timeshare owning family, so we typically spend a full week in one resort and plan accordingly. We were owner referrals, so we knew most of what we were getting when we booked. This was our first family trip to Pigeon Forge. The water park being extra was a surprise, but we got free tickets. The room was noisier than expected, with the adjoining cabin's children being up late, yelling and jumping on beds at 11 pm. If we return, earplugs and an upper room will be required. The room was spacious, the furniture was nice and comfortable, the view was spectacular and the balcony was relaxing. The shuttle drivers were very friendly and accommodating the entire week. We used the quieter pool at the top more than the crowded one.
The negatives - thin walls/ceilings, no complimentary coffee in rooms, slightly odd dual bathroom configuration (one shared shower), trolley goes only to Gatlinburg (although you are closer to Pigeon Forge), and navigating stairs with suitcases. The positives - great central location, mini-market and package store on the property, the indoor water park, the staff, shuttle service and the security. Overall, we were pleased with our choice.
