To learn more about why you'll love our location, check out these 4 perks of the location of our Gatlinburg hotel on the river:

1. Enjoy Being on the River

One of the biggest perks of staying with us is being able to enjoy the beautiful view of the river. You can choose to stay in a room with a balcony that overlooks the stream behind us, and there’s no better way to spend the morning as you wake up and get ready to head out for the day. Even if you don’t stay in a room with a view of the river, you’ll still be able to walk outside and enjoy the view! You could even pack a picnic blanket, set it up by the river, and enjoy spending time with your sweetheart, family, and friends while you’re on vacation!
