Woke up to a delicious breakfast of ham and cheese omelets by Chef Marcus, who don't need no spatula to flip some eggs.
We broke camp leisurely and headed south ...
... all sorts of goodies. It was a kinda weird place.
The weirdest experience was a restaurant called 'Dick's Last Resort'. These restaurants are everywhere now that we are aware of them. We walked in to the restaurant and the guy was like 'Welcome to Dick's! Have you been before?' We were like 'No', he then said 'You have heard of us before right?', our response 'Nope'. 'His response 'So you've just ...
... below it. Now something was making the empty dirty bag dance up and down. I assumed a rodent was chewing on the handle straps, but when I got closer I saw that a little deer mouse was trapped inside the bag. Its futile attempts to scurry up the slick plastic to freedom were causing the noise.
“Oh you silly thing,” I whispered. “How did you get in there?”
I carefully let the mouse out on the floor of the shelter and it tottered off drunkenly ...
... take a fake shower near the top.
This one was still a little of a climb but much less torturous. There were tons of people at the top waiting for their Kodak moment behind the falls so we joined the queue. Got our romantic snaps and Chris got a quick head cool off.
Then we descended a steep bit near the river/falls and dipped our bods. Chris made a ...
... compete for Britain if Mini Golf ever makes it into the Olympics. Me and Les had a team talk later that night, about how we are going to have to raise our game. I think we need to take them on at our sports. I will be suggesting a day at the bowling alley tomorrow with drinking games.
The end of the night the Sach's kindly treated us to a delicious home/camp cooked dinner consisting of yummy pork loin, gnocchi and veggies.

Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Inn Willow River Sevierville
We loved this hotel
My family of 5 stayed here, and absolutely loved this hotel. It was the perfect place to relax after enjoying the sights of the area. My kids loved the Lazy River pool, with a current that takes tubes around the outer pool. They also enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub area - perfect for the cool mornings! The refrigerator is not tiny, it has a nice cold freezer, and the breakfast buffet was small but perfect, with cereals, juices, biscuits, muffins, & fruit. The rooms were large, with two queen beds & a pull-out sofa. The decor was beautiful, and the staff could not have been more friendly & helpful. And they had lightning bugs you can catch!!!
Excellent Value. Clean, comfortable. Balcony in every room as well as fridge and freezer. Hot tub and indoor pool area is very nice.
This hotel is a DREAM. The rooms are lovely and roomy, the beds are so comfortable. Our room had a balcony with a river & mountain view. It looks like you have stepped into "Gone with the Wind" ! The decor, peace and tranquility of this hotel is of 5-star quality. We will stay here again.
Superior and courteous service. Jacuzzi suite was impeccably clean and comfortable. Room was quiet and frankly a haven after a long day. Gone With the Wind decor was very appealing. My only regret .... which I could have stayed longer. Thanks Clarion Inn!
I haved stayed here twice in one of the jacuzzi suites. Not only is the tub great, but the room is large and not long and narrow. The fireplace is also very nice. The best rooms are 101, 103, and 107. These are on the 1st floor. 101 is on the end acrros from the lobby by itself. Nice room. Beautiful hotel. I have reservations there this weekend in for $87.90 for a suite with fireplace and hot tub. Can't beat that. AAA discount-reg 109.00 They also have an indoor pool with a whirlpool right next door to the rooms I mentioned, which are also close to the lobby. Beautiful, clean hotel, next door to Route 66 Restaurant. On sat. nights Route 66 has someone picking and singing in the lounge, (where you can also buy a drink). This hotel is very close to everything. Across the street is Scenic helicopter tours, and about 1-2 miles is Golden Corral. Hope I helped. Enjoy your stay!
Can't Go Wrong!!
This was absolutely the most delightful hotel I have ever stayed in.
My husband and I were in awe from the minute we pulled into the parking lot. The hotel is beautifully kept and run. The staff is more than gracious and we never saw a one of them without a smile. Our room was gorgeous and definetly we got a deal. It was extremely clean and looked brand new. It was very, very spacious and had a view of the river that was just romantic.
We will never stay anywhere different. We both strongly recommend it.
Have stayed here many times , the staff ,especially Jan , is very nice, and accomodating. Its a beautiful place to stay and I highly recommend it. A big plus! You can get back on Interstate in minutes when you leave for home. Ask the front desk for the "shortcuts" to Gatlinburg to avoid traffic.
LOVED this hotel
We stayed here two nights and LOVED this place. Had a room right on the river, unloading the car was a breeze, the continental breakfast was fine, and our 9yo son loved their THREE pools. Very quiet, very clean, and non-smoking was definitely non-smoking.The only thing I wanted to change was to have an "off" switch for the balcony light, so we could sit outside in the evening and enjoy the stars and wildlife. They even have lightning bugs!!
The plumbing will keep you up all night!
I have stayed at this Clarion twice and both times, I had to put up with listening to the water from the shower and jacuzzi above. On my last stay I wasin room 201 on the very front of the Inn, and I could hear every car and truck that went by. Iwill stay at this Clarion again, but only if it is on the3rd floor and in the back. It is a very nice, but youjust have to be in on the right floor and in the rightlocation.
A great place to sleep

could not have gotten better deal. very clean, safe,nice,quite. good breakfast with paid room. can't go wrong and will always stay here when in the area.
