The best girl's night out ever!

A travel blog entry by thesmithfamily


My friend and I decided we needed a little R&R and made a reservation for this local resort about a month ago. Our fantastic stay started with a courtesy early check-in. We had the full day to, well, DO NOTHING! We settled in, toured the grounds, stopped for a snack in the dining room (apples, oranges, bannanas), headed out to the water on the …

Day 4 - Gatlinburg, Tennessee

A travel blog entry by bbhathella


Happy 4th of July! Always seem to help the Americans celebrate their day! Off to ziplining through the Great Smoky Mountains. Beautiful views. Ziplining was a great experience! Met a guard chicken! Headed home for a nice simple dinner of grilled cheese sandwiches. Hit the spot! Spent the evening playing cards, competing against each other in the arcade, and soaking our aching bodies in the hot tub! What a great ...

Gatlinburg Day 7 What the heck is going on with this child!!!!! We come home late, Kylee finally falls asleep at 10:30 pm and this morning at 6:50 am, she is up! Jamie, Jennifer, Brycen, and Jayce had left around 5:00 am. So, when we got up the house seemed lonely. Helen, Ray, Jodi and myself got busy packing away items in our cars and cleaning up the house. We left around 9:45 and Ray and Helen left soon after. Coming down the mountain ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Mountain Harbor Inn Resort On the Lake Dandridge

    Bad Experience


    This Bed & Breakfast would have been a bad experience at half the cost! The website gives you the impression of a quaint Inn located in the woods by a lake. In reality it is ten feet from a busy road with absolutely no curb appeal, and where traffic noise makes sleeping difficult. We should have been even more skeptical when we had to pay the balance of our bill before we were shown our rooms! When this was questioned as being unusual, the clerk said that this was their policy since there would be no additional charges - thank-goodness?

    Beautiful wedding!


    My husband and I rented out the B&B for the weekend for our wedding June 9, 2007. Our entire weekend was absolutely phenomenol! The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and accomodating. Our guests (as well as us) had a wonderful weekend and could not have asked for any better experience.

    Beautiful inn. Can't wait to return


    My family of 4 and our 2 dogs stayed for 3 nights in The Rose suite and we LOVED it. The view was the best part of this inn. We were in a garden terrace room (which I would highly reccommend if the noise from the road behind would bother your sleep). The rooms on the terrace do not have a back door because it is actually a walkout basement area. It is below ground on the street side, but on the lake side you have a gorgeous view and a small grassy area and immediate access to the hot tub. The king sized beds were the most comfortable I've had in a hotel. The breakfast was fabulous! A wonderful assortment and they serve until 10 for those of us who like to sleep in on vacation!

    So bad we could not stay!! Beware very deceiving


    The review posted by someone in Atlanta on Dec 2,2006 is practically identical to what we found at this Motel claiming to be a B&B.

    Wonderful, Romantic Resort!


    I am in dibelief to some of the reviews I have read on this Inn. Obviousley the people that have complained and left nasty reviews, went on their getaway just looking for something to complain about. Let me start by saying my husband and I have stayed here twice and are fixing to go back for a weekend stay. Our first trip here was for a week in August 2006, we were celebrating our 3rd anniversary. Upon arrival I was stunned by the beauty of this resort. It was magnificant! We had booked our first room for 4 nights in the Plantation Suite. The room was gorgeous, very clean, and we loved the citrus frangrance that they used. The room had a king size bed, full bath, huge chair, kitchen area with mini refridgerator and microwave, and a dining table. On the deck of our room there was 2 recliners, were my husband and I spent most of our time because of the beautiful lake. Our room was right above the hot tub, which made for an easy walk there. During our stay we received a terrible phone call. My husbands aunt had to be rushed to the ER due to side effects of her cancer. We contacted the front desk and told them of our problem. They were very polite and understanding and told us if we needed to leave for that they would give us a gift certificate for the nights that we would be missing. They also told us that they would keep our family in their prayers. We were only about an hour away from the hospital in which our aunt was at, so we decided we would just make a day trip the next morning to see her and then come back to the inn. After 4 nights in the Plantation Suite, we moved to the Song of the South. It was very beautiful too. Same layout, just different furniture. I must say that the matresses there are the most comfortable mattresses I have slept on.

    Horrible Experience - Do Not Stay at this Hotel


    The pictures on the website and brochure in no way resemble what you will find or experience at this inn. When we arrived we were shocked that our rooms were right on one of the busiest highways in the mountains and cars/trucks were zooming by - this was not the quiet retreat we had expected. We asked if the traffic slowed down at night and inquired about noise and we were told it would be very quiet at night. This was not true. We were up all night with the noise of of cars and trucks zooming past our bedroom window and it sounded like they were coming through the wall into our room. In addition, the room was so full of flies that we had to request a fly swatter to kill them. We were told that new carpet had been installed and apparently they had left the door open.

    Great Stay - Will go back


    We stayed here the weekend after Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. The staff were very nice and friendly. The first night we took the sunset cruise and the General Manger wasthe captain of our boat (pontoon). He was very informative and told us a lot about the area. That night we went to the dining room for the desert, which was great. A big brownie with ice cream and homemade fudge or cheesecake, we had the brownie, which was really good.

    Would not return.


    We rented the Lincoln Penthouse Suite for our 24th Anniversary. The pictures on their website are misleading. The Inn appears to be alone in the woods beside a lake. Reality: It is 10 feet (really) from a very busy 24/7/365 Highway 139. The noise from the cars, motorcycles and trucks kept us awake all night. The "Lincoln" has two bedrooms which face the Highway and every time a car or truck went by, we thought they were going to come inside the room. Also, the Orange Room Freshener made us nausious. They used way too much. On the good side, the suite is large, nice kitchen, Jacuzzi in one bathroom, shower in the other, big screen TV, nice deck with a spa tub. Only other complaint is that we had to share our side of the deck/spa tub with the folks in the other Penthouse. There is no way to divide the two sides of the deck upstairs, so we had no privacy. Room cost was way too high, $269.00 per night, for there to have been the issues we encountered. Should have been more privacy, NO NOISE, larger bedrooms. Breakfast was good, coffee was mediocre. We stayed 3 nights and breakfast was the same each morning. Evening dessert was awesome!! Choice of delicious Cheesecake, or an incredible Brownie with lots of Icecream and fudge sauce with a cherry. Staff was very friendly, efficient, professional. Main reason we would not return is the NOISE!!!

    Fell a bit short


    My husband and I stayed two nights at the Mountain Harbor Inn. The rooms are smaller than they appear on the website, but the beds are nice with good linens. There is a very strong smell in the rooms from the air freshners, plug-ins, and potpourri they use. I am all for nice-smelling rooms, but here is was very over-powering and artificial smelling. Too much. The bathrooms are small and in need of update, and the showers are tiny, but there is a nice assortment of Bath & Body Works toiletries. We had our dog with us, but we were not in one of the official "pet" rooms because of a mix-up. The first morning of our stay, I took our Chihuahua out to walk. We were walking around on the sidewalks around the grounds and my dog was sniffing something in one of the flowerbeds. One of the groundskeepers (who was also on the housekeeping staff) rudely said, "Ma'am you're supposed to walk your dog over by the dumpster, not in the flowerbeds." Well, there is no grass by the dumpster, only a gravel pit.

    Beautiful Hotel


    Beautiful place, wonderful food, recommend this place to anyone. People are so nice and friendly, rooms are beautiful.
