Travel Blogs from Pigeon Forge
Well it's the first day being temporarily unemployed. Feels weird knowing I won't be going back to the hospital to work. Got a lot accomplished. My passport arrived finally. We got the hitch installed and the trailer reserved. We got to spend the morning with sweet friends and their 12 horses and numerous cats. Had a blast feeding carrots and apples to the horses. I'm sure going to miss these wonderful ...
... said that they will shoot you for "nuttin" hahahaheheh Then we checked into our campground. Deep creek tube and campground. Real cute and lots to do here! We are reminded though why we like state and national campgrounds though. They really pack them in private campgrounds and tend to be more loud. We are going exploring tomorrow in the mountains and going white water rafting! I'm kind of nervous so wish me and my boys ...
... they were trading shifts but i think they were just to lazy to come to their rescue. They were in a hot metal elevator burning up until someone came and pried them out. I would never go to this hotel again. We told them to give us more than fifty dollars but they refused.
Took a family vacation to Gatlinburg, TN!! Don't have many pics on this computer but it's wonderful there. We stayed in a huge cabin. The scenery is out of this world. Pigeon Forge is great! We went to a local steakhouse, The Peddler, and it was awesome! They have great wine to choose from as well. We went for the 4th of July. It was beyond crowded but everyone had a blast, and we would go back in a heartbeat. ...
... when we got up. Then, we spent a half hour traversing the course - it was a blast!
Wonderworks was great for a 6 yr old. He was even able to do the ropes course with his dad helping him although he was a bit scared. There was lots of stuff he could do and only a few big rides he couldn't do.
We ended up really enjoying ourselves in Wonderworks - there were a couple of thrill rides, rock climbing, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews MainStay Suites Pigeon Forge
A bit expensive during the peak season
but we stayed there in the off season several times and enjoyed the clean rooms, friendly staff, and the lazy river ride. Glad they have an elevator. Kitchenettes are nice and there is a grill at the poolside that no one else but us ever used. Would stay there again if the price was right!
"Very nice place to stay."
My family and I recently stayed at the Mainstay Suites in Pigeon Forge, TN and we had a very nice time. Mainstay is tucked away from the main Pigeon Forge strip and the location is very nice and peaceful. The one bedroom suite was very nice and included a full kitchen and a separate living room. There were televisions in both, the bedroom and the living room. The entire hotel was very neat and clean. I truly enjoyed the homey feeling of the suite, along with the nice indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi. I would highly recommend Mainstay Suites to anyone visiting the Pigeon Forge area.
Our family has been going there every other year since Nov. 1998
My family has been staying in this hotel every other year since Nov. of 1998. We have our Family reunions here and we have enjoyed the quiet and peaceful area ever since. As a matter of fact we are going back there again this year. The staff treats us gret everytime we go. They know who we are eveytime we stop by to stay to enjoy ourselves. I recommend this hotel over anything in Pigeon Forge if you ask me.
We had a nice time
We stayed from May 31 to June 7. We did not have any problems with the hotel. Our three year old son really like the pools. I liked the hotel since it was off of the main road. We walked most places we went. Or took the trolly.
Wonderful place to stay.
We have been going to PF for several years . We were thrilled when we found Mainstay. Provides everything we could possibly want: Relaxation, quiet, away from noise you find along the main road. Couldn't be happier and plan on returning this year.
There are much better hotels in Pigeon Forge!!!
We have been going to PF for many years and had the poor luck to book a suite at Mainstay. The walls were paper thin, allowing us to hear every bump in the night from our neighbors, sleep was impossible. If you are bothering to read reviews prior to booking and wish to actually sleep through the night, please try any of the other hundred other properties in the area. Guarenteed, you'll be glad you did.
Loved the Hotel
My family has stayed at Mainstay for our annual family trip on 3 different occassions. We love the hotel. The amenties at the hotel keep the kids busy. We plan to stay there again real soon.
Great place to stay
We have stayed there twice and love it. They have both indoor and outdoor pools, kiddie pool, a lazy river and an indoor and outdoor hot tub. This makes pool use possible despite the weather. My kids LOVED IT. Continental breakfast certainly adequate and well-staffed. Staff also helpful with booking area entertainment. Our favorite place to stay.
Nice location and setting
Stayed at this hotel on Oct 31-Nov 4, 2003. The location and setting are quiet, peaceful and attractive. We enjoyed being off the main parkway a couple of blocks! The room is comfortable, functional and great for a family with small kids. The kitchen was equipped with everything I needed for simple food preparation. Morning continental breakfast was ok, but I have had better at other hotels. The pool and hot tubs were great. The staff was not overly friendly, but not rude.
We had a few ants in our kitchen and no one seemed to be able to fix that problem, which we eventually reported to the manager. Overall I liked this hotel, minus the ants, and think it is a great place to stay for the price.
Main Stay Suites - Pigeon Forge
We stayed July 8 - 11 and just loved it. Both pools -outdoor and indoor
- are spacious. Lazy river ride was a popular place with both kids and
adults and there were also two hot tubs (large!) - one indoor and one
outdoor. The breakfast each morning was great - better than any other
continental breakfast I have had at other hotels. Hotel is about 3-4
blocks off the main strip of Pigeon Forge, so it is very quiet. We
enjoyed our stay there and will stay again!!
