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 ...
... so high. Troy left me there and continued on his way up to the top, the views were amazing. I was happy with what I saw from where I was sitting. We found out later that it was one of the strenuous hikes to do.
We were lucky enough to be in Gatlinburg when there was a car show in town, we have never seen so many muscle cars in our life, it was cool watching them cruise up and down the streets, hours of ...

I finally drifted off, only to have my bladder wake me. “No,” I told it, “you have to hold on until morning.” It cramped in response. “Please? Really, I don’t want to have to get up. It’s dark out there. And wet.” My bladder had no mercy and I couldn’t deny it any longer. Peeing in the middle of the night when camping is a lot different from doing it at home where I ...
Happy Labor Day People (though we will make the argument that we labored more yesterday)
today is Waterfall challenge #2. This one was Grotto falls and only 3~ish miles and supposedly not so uphill. (This being a waterfall I was not going to be fooled by the promise of 'no' uphill...)
We carried a lighter load today (smart move #1) and brought along our water shoes ...

Historical Traveler Reviews James Manor Pigeon Forge
This hotel on a scale 1-10 was about a 6 to me. The beds very clean & BR & showers were clean but in the corners of the room (were the table & chairs were) looked as if it hadn't been vacuumed. The mirrors in the room weren't clean (smudges all over it) around the frig was dusty, looked like it hadn't been dusted in months. I did love the area it was in & the balcony was very nice cause of the view. The out door & indoor pools are small. The outdoor pool was very clean but the indoor pool was nasty & the hot tub was nasty. There was a cloth of somesort in it. The staff were pleasant. Would be nice place but needs improvement in cleaniness. The room also had an offensive odor in it.
Clean and Safe
My family has stayed at james manor several times once with 11 family members and everytime it's been a great experience. The staff is very helpful and the security is awsome there's cameras everywhere! The outside doors even lock after dark that highly unusual. The motel is very clean and smells great. I would highly recommend staying here.
we just stayed this last weekend at james manor and it was the 3 time we had stayed there we had a front room with balcony and fireplace it had a king bed and couch it was really nice.we have stayed in all season and paid all prices this weekend it was 40.00 on sunday you cant beat that price for that roon anywhere in p forge and we have stayed at alot of places over the years there.the only complaint is the breakfast. in july the rooms at 100.00 and all you get is cereal and muffins there should be waffles or at least donuts the orange juice is not good either but that is the worse thing i can say about itbut we usually go get krispy kreme donuts the night before and make coffee in room(they have a coffeepot in each room)and sit on balcony and eat there is a microwave,and frig in room
Clean, Clean, Clean and Affordable
The hotel was very, very clean and the hotel itself even had a clean smell. The rooms were much larger than a normal hotel room. The rooms were affordable and the hotel was convenient to anything you would want to do. I highly recommend this hotel. I have stayed in Pigeon Forge many times and this hotel is by far the cleanest I have ever seen.
GOOD HOTEL VALUE!!!!
I enjoyed my stay at the James Manor, the staff was great, especially housekeeping. My only complaints would be the bathrooms are very small and I would like to see some hot water at the breakfast for grits or oatmeal. All in all a great value.
"First Time Stay at James Manor"
The James Manor was a great choice for our vacation. The front desk staff and maid service was wonderful. The rooms were spacious, clean and had a mini fridge and microwave. LOVED the balcony!! We did have one small inconvience, there were only 6 lounge chairs by the pool and several adults were needing and asking for chairs. Other than that we had a GREAT stay and will back on our next vacation. Thanks !!
Clean,comfortable,and very friendly..
Our family enjoyed staying at the james manor this year, it was our first time staying here. we were really impressed with the clean, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere, not to mention the the private balcony, and very friendly staff members..
Great! will be back!
Got a room at 10 am (only 7 left - suites). No problem. Couldn't check in until 2 or 3 even though the clerk said room had been checked out. Loved when we got in. Clean, lots of towels. More than we had expected. For the price and what we got - will be back. Thanks. The only thing a little disappointing was the indoor pool looked as though it needed a bit cleaning.
My Family loves James Manor
My husband, son (10 yrs), daughter (4 years) and I have stayed at James Manor 4 times. We absolutely love it. The rooms are very clean. They are big compared to most hotel/motel rooms. The staff is always smiling and willing to help you. The kiddie pool is so nice for small children. The pool outside is nice and my children love to play in it. There is an indoor pool that is heated (the outside pool is heated also) and it is fun. They also have a whirlpool. I would highly recommend staying here.
We Stayed at the James Manor during the Spring Rod Run in Pigeon Forge. It was a very clean room, along with plenty of room and good service. We had a good continential breakfast every morning. They have plenty of security and parking. The rooms have private balconies with chairs. We would stay there again and recommend it to any one.
