Historical Traveler Reviews Riverhouse at the Park Gatlinburg
We just returned from a weekend stay April 22-24. Riverhouse at the Park surpassed all my expectations. The room had a gas log fireplace which I did not expect. The private balcony was great. Have stayed at worse places for more money. The quietness of the rooms shocked me. Even though we were on the second floor we could not hear the people above or below us which is usually not the case in other hotels. The donuts were out of this world, staff were very friendly. We went for a walk along the walking trail by the river, very quiet and a nice walk. I will stay at this hotel again and again.
Will stay again.

We have just completed a weeks stay at Riverhouse by the park. It was everything other reviews said it was. We happened to stay on the fourth floor street side ,which I thought was just as interesting as being on the riverside. The pool and hottub are in a private courtyard and are clean and enjoyable. The rooms are kept very clean and the fireplaces and balconies are great. The parking lot is in a private courtyard away from other traffic. You are going to like this motel, the rooms are spacious and the staff is helpfull and friendly. We are definetly going to stay here again.
Great place in a great town
My wife and I stayed here with our two young children, and it was great. The room was very large and clean and the fireplace was nice. The balcony overlooking the river was perfect, and the breakfast brought to the room was a plus. It's on the edge of town, so it's within walking distance from many of the restaurants, shops, and attractions, but not so close to the other end of town. We would stay here again for sure.
Love this place
wouldn't stay anywhere else. We come every year for the last 15 yrs tried other places but always come back here for the down home atmosphere and welcoming attitude of the staff. Fresh homemade doughnuts and the best toast in town brought to your room within seconds of ordering.
Been staying in Gatlinburg for years. Have seen a lot of new hotels go up in those years and chalets. I have also been very disappointed in both of them. This is the only place I would suggest that anyone stay if they want a great room and view for the price, it is the best. Very convenient to all the great places to eat, walking distance to shopping and eating. I do not make plans for a trip unless I know I have a room at Riverhouse at the Park.
Home away from Home
I've been to Gatlinburg all my life and stayed in various hotels all across the place. As an adult vacationer I've always come back to either Riverhouse or Riverhouse at the Park (same owners), usually 2-3 times per year. As of the past several years I've pretty much just used R@P. Anyway, I've always been so pleased with everything about the place...room cleanliness, space, amenities, ambience, location, friendliness, continental breakfast, pools...everything. It's come to the point that I don't even search out other hotel options anymore, because I've become so accustomed to the warm accomodations there. I really feel that my trips to Gatlinburg wouldn't be nearly so comfortable if I weren't in "my home away from home". My teenage son and his friends, as well as myself and my friends have adoped this hotel as our standard, and have loved every trip we've ever taken there. I recommend Riverhouse at the Park to anyone who is looking for an all-around great room and facility without having to worry about what you're going to be getting for your hotel dollar once you're there. Just book it and go...no worries.
Great Place to Stay...very romantic!
We first visited Gatlinburg last fall (2003).
Friends had told us about The Riverhouse at the Park and how lovely the rooms were with the fireplaces. I am so happy we took their advice.
The rooms are very large with great balconies and could make for a very romantic setting.
The rooms are also very clean!!
The breakfast in the AM is brought up to you within minutes of your phone call and it is very delicious.
We are making plans again now in 2004 to come back during the Christmas Holidays.
If you stay here, you will not be disappointed!
The Best place.
My husband and I have stayed at The River House for the past 5 Years. We stumblled upon the wonderful hotel in the fall of 1999. The rooms and the bathrooms are VERY clean and the service you can not ask for anything better. We recomend everyone we know to this woderful hotel. We have 3 small children so we need the room and here you diffently get that the rooms are so big. The balcony is wonderful, there is nothing better sitting outside when the kids are sleeping, wraped up in blackent next to your husband listening to the river flow by or for a romatic weekend get away from the kids with the one you love sitting in front of the fire place. I have found the place that meets all of our family needs. Oh don't forget about the outside pool and hot tub. Need we say more.... Nathan and Kristie McCall
Great Place to Stay
This motel was recommended by someone over the internet who said we wouldn't be disappointed and we weren't. Their rooms are quite spacious; much larger than a standard motel room. It also had a separate dressing area with fridge, microwave, vanity with sink and plenty of room for storage. The bathroom was roomy as well and very clean. Our room overlooked a cool, rushing stream, and we were glad to have a private balcony we could enjoy it from. This motel is situated at the end of River Road, right up against the National Park. A trail leading into the park is located just a stone's throw away. A call to Housekeeping in the morning brings you a choice of homemade donuts, toast w/jam, and beverages. In my estimate this place, at $79 a night, is a real bargain.
We have been vacationing in gatlinburg for years several times a year. We always try to stay at the riverhouse hotels, the rooms are on the river and always clean and very comfortable,the staff from front desk to maids and maintence people are very friendly and x-tremely helpful in any way they can be. A truely reaxing trip everytime and the hot homemade doughnuts ,hot toast ,coffee and juice delivered to your door when you call is wonderful

... for that matter). I love the older, more traditional cottages and this time, I'm opting for a duplex. Actually, it's a triplex! I've driven past this "barn" on many of my trips to Topsail and decided this would be the year I booked one of the 3 units it has. Nothing fancy, a bed, a bath, a kitchen and a deck on ...
... 00 a person. Unfortunately because of the long wait we just did have time to ride the scenic chairlift to the very top before they closed it down. By the time we got up to the top it was dark so didn't see the view so much and it was cold up there. There was a ice skating rink inside and some shops etc. Was a nice trip but if you go try goin when its not so crowded and start ...
... The park was awesome! On the third day we went horse back riding and zip lining. The kids LOVED the horse back riding, however Vera did NOT love the zip lining! :o)
On our final day we went to Ober Gatlinburg where the kids got to go snow tubing. There was plenty of man made snow to make this a cold and wet, but exhilarating outing. Immediately following the snow tubing we got back into the car and made our ...
... find yourself in Dollywood, trust me, get 2 loaves. Our next day was spent in Gatlinburg, where most of the Smoky Mountains craftsman have their shops. There is an art loop, which will probably take about 1-2 hours, depending on how many stops you make. This offers your usual pottery, textiles, paintings etc. There is a broom maker as well, but unfortunately closed on Sundays, so we missed them. We headed to Gatlinburg center, which ...
