We have been to Gatlinburg many times, but this was our first stay at Riverhouse. We stayed there four nights and I loved it so much we didn't want to leave. It is the perfect location, within walking distance to town. Our room was located over the river and had a nice, private balcony. The room was extra large with a fireplace, microwave and refrigerator. This is the largest room I have ever had in a hotel in that area. It was wonderful watching all the wild life in the river and was so peaceful and relaxing sitting out on the balcony. On New Year's Eve, we could see the ball drop at the Space Needle and had a great view of the fireworks. Gatlinburg has a wonderful New Year's Eve celebration each year with live music, a ball drop and fireworks. It is just a great place to celebrate the new year. There are many great restaurants located nearby with the Peddler and the Pancake Pantry being on the top of my list. Shopping can be found everywhere and if you take a short drive, you can get to the arts community, as well as Pigeon Forge where there are hundres of stores - including a great discount mall. This is my new favorite place to stay. The room was clean and private and the staff was nice. It is furnished like a lodge with paneling and a stone fireplace (nothing fancy). We had to ask the front desk to help us get closed caption on the television, and they assisted us immediately. This hotel does require a minimum stay of four nights during the holiday season and also a pre-payment of two nights (this is refundable if you cancel 7 days in advance). I certainly plan to stay there the next time I travel to Gatlinburg.
