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 ...

Packed and ready! It's always about the food! Long drive and lots of July 4th traffic. Made it to Gatlinburg...nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains. Beautiful! Had to have a cup of chai when we arrived and some pizza for dinner. Good food, great company! Thank you ...

... out of a parking lot, never looking to her left in which I was coming. I barely was able to hit the break. Thank goodness I have a good habit of checking my mirrors often. I swerved to avoid her and luckily there was no other vehicle in the other lane. Finally, after 45 minutes or so, we made it to I-75. The traffic was heavy most of the trip home. Rain poured down for most of the morning causing us to go slower than we wanted. We ...

Day 1 on the road to Las Vegas

A travel blog entry by 1krafty1

It was a late start out of Langley AFB because we had to load the truck, van, and car for the trip. Then we had to check out of temporary lodging and clear housing. It was almost 10:30 when we got on the interstate and headed west.

We made it to Knoxville around 7 PM. There was a couple of spots of traffic and a couple of rain showers, but all in all, it was a pretty uneventful day. Kegan ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Riverhouse Motor Lodge Gatlinburg

    Ambience Abounds

    from

    My husband and I return to the Riverhouse every year.

    A Repeat Customer is Disappointed

    from

    My wife and I had stayed at the Riverhouse each last weekend of September since 1998, and had made reservations to do so again this year. Although it seems to me to be "pricey" for its 70s cabin-ish decor, it is conveniently located and on a creek, and has fireplaces. In fact, for the past several years it had been a "tradition" for us to stay there. However, this year we had a family emergency occur a few days before our reservation, and needed to cancel. My request for return of the deposit, or at least use of the room for one night, or even credit toward another stay was denied, with "our policy" being used as the reason. The inflexibility and uncaring attitude of the establishment toward a good customer at a time of crisis not only caused us to not stay there this year, but dashed any hopes of future annual trips to the Riverhouse. I am very dissapointed.

    Most relaxing place on the planet

    from

    We have stayed at the Riverhouse 4 or 5 times and have thoroughly enjoyed every single moment. The rooms are large and comfortable. The oversized fireplaces are magical and the staff fills your wood pile every day. We always spend our first afternoon on the balcony watching the river with the swimming ducks and the squirrels dancing through the trees. (There's a wine shop a few blocks away that will give you a corkscrew.) The donuts and OJ are delicious and the service is always excellent. The pool is refreshing on a hot day. Can't wait to return!

    Love at first sight...

    from

    We ran across the Riverhouse Motor Lodge by accident and fell in love with all it had to offer. First, let me start by saying this lodge is what I remember Gatlinburg to be when I was a child. On the river, tucked away on the hill side, fireplaces, and in walking distance to town. The Owners were very friendly and the homemade donuts are to die for, they bring them right to your room in the morning. The Little Pigeon river running along the lodge will put you to sleep at night. We loved it so much that we are planning our next trip back. Overall this is a great place for the whole family.

    Comfortable Beds

    from

    The beds are really comfortable. The sounds of the water could not be enjoyed because the windows don't open and there are not screens on the back door by the water. It's a comfortable stay, but we've stayed in town at a lower cost. Not worth the extra cost of the room compared to other local hotels.

    The BEST

    from

    The BEST---downtown Gatlinburg --great service with free breakfast including fresh fried donuts and fresh squeezed O.J. If you cant get in here try Riverhouse at the Park --newer version of the same thing...

    Unforgetable

    from

    this is my 10th anniversary. my husband and i try to come on our anniversary as much as possible because riverhouse room #35 is the most romantic room in the smoky's. we feel like kids again when we stay. the smell of the fire in the fireplace and the view of the stream from our hidden balcony is just too perfect for words. they reallyshould show a picture of it. you can walk hand in hand anywhere from there and in the rain, is when it is the most magical. thanks for giving us a place to hide from the world and just see each other.

    Great facility with insensitive policy

    from

    We have stayed at the Riverhouse for several years, sometimes twice, and really enjoyed the stay until this year. On the first night of a planned 3 night stay we got a call that my mother had been taken to the hospital with a life threatening condition. We decided to go home the next morning. Mother passed away the following morning. Upon checking out, Riverhouse said they would be charging us for the 2 unused nights because that was their policy, no exceptions. I sent a copy of Mother's death cert to the Riverhouse owner and still no consideration. Beware of their calloused insensitivity.

    Riverhouse is great!

    from

    This wonderful motel is nestled up against Crockett Mountian in a secluded area of Gatlinburg. The main parkway is a short 1 block walk away. The rooms are all located on the roaring Little Pidgeon River which will lull you to sleep every night. We love the Riverhouse and it has become a favorite family vacation spot. The staff is excellent and the hot homemade donuts delivered right to your door every morning are to die for!

    A relaxing stay everytime

    from

    We have been visiting the smokeys for years. We always try to stay at riverhouse motorlodge, all rooms are on the river and 1 short block off the parkway. The rooms have always been very clean,quiet,and very comfortable. They have wonderful jacuzzi tubs in their rooms. The continental breakfast delivered to your door in the mornings with fresh hot homemade doughnuts,juice and other selections are enough to make you want to get up. The management is always friendly and welcoming.Always look forward to our visit with them.
