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 ...
... we saw was white). So the rules were that you had to hang your food, and the park service even provided a cable system for that purpose. We had been told by our driver that we shouldn’t just hang our food, though. We should hang our whole pack because bears have a sense of smell that is something like 70,000 times more powerful than a human’s. That means your pack smells like food to a bear, even if there is no food in it.
As the rain poured down, Julie and I ...

On the way back Chris and I checked out 'Food City' and collected another loyalty card for another grocery store that we'll probably never see again.
Due to the combined exhaustion from the past two days we decided to chill ...
... and head back.
How wrong was I. This was by far the hardest hike me and Leslie had ever done. I think it might have been the hardest thing i have ever done. The 4 miles to the falls was just one long uphill climb, we were at 3000 feet so the air was thin and seemed to be in short supply. Two miles in me and Les looked like we had been caught in a rain storm (Two sweaty cats). All the while M and L appeared to be skipping along without ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Shular Inn Hotel Pigeon Forge
We just got back from staying at the Shular Inn. We took a group of over 50 people. My advice to the owner of the Shular Inn would be, next year, don't agree to be a host hotel for Winterfest if you don't want to deal with the extra people. All of the staff was extremely rude from the moment we checked in. Yes, we had about 45 teens with us, but before they even knew anything about our group we were treated very rudely. Hopefully we will not be staying there again next year. My family takes numerous trips to Pigeon Forge every year and I will be sure to warn all of them to stay away from the Shular.
We Love It
we loved staying here. the rooms were so clean, they had a micro and a fridge. the pools were great. they brought breakfast to our room one morning because it was so cold outside. they had and iron and an ironing board for check-out at the front desk, and you could keep it for your whole stay, and they also had a nice laundry facility for guests. AA++ we will be going back.
Cannot say enough about the Shular Inn. I read some of the reviews and don't understand what hotel they stayed at. I enjoyed each and every minute of my stay. The staff was pleasant, helpful and very customer service oriented. I had booked my reservation online and it was not received by the hotel. They honored the rate quoted to me by the online company and even assisted in getting the credit due to me from that online company. That was more than expected from any company. I will tell all of my friends, the hotel staff deserves great "word of mouth" advertising.
In June my family had a pre-paid, (booked on line) week at Shular Inn.
Arrived the evening of 10/22.I was charged full stay. I told them I had already been charged three nights stay weeks earlier. The clerk told me they never charged credit cards early. I paid the bill and contacted Travelocity. Travelocity called Shular Inn and was told Shular Inn had "stopped using that reservation service a week ago." The next morning I went to desk to talk to someone else. She said "They did charge deposits early," but since I had used Internet, The lost deposit was my problem . She stated she had no idea who to call,but to leave my info and she would try. Hours laterI returned to desk, she said she was by herself and tired .She had done nothing. During my time at front desk another customer had similar troubles with similar answers"It is not Shular Inn's problem. You call, you get it straightened out!" That afternoon I went back to front desk hoping to find someone that would help. Happily my deposit was found. After all this, Shular Inn was average. Can't say I would go back. Remember , any problems you are on your own.
Unpleasant management staff
The reservation manager Mary needs a course in Customer Service. I was charged for my room by Shular Inn and also by the places to stay website. When I called to inquire about the matter Mary seemed to get an attitude as if I was trying to get something for free. I asked her to please status me about my complaint. That was on August 6th and I am still waiting to hear from her or any of the management as of August 15th. I will never stay there again. And I will advise everyone I know not to stay there.
Me and my husband spent our 10th wedding anniversary here and it was wonderful the staff went out of ther way to help us have a wonderful stay. And then we brought our kids back a little later and they loved to stay here it was a great place to stay along or with kids. Thanks Maryfrom Brenda
I have stayed at Shular for the past ten years, usually three times per year and for three days each time. Conservatively, I have spent about $5000 with Shular during the last ten years.
An every year trip
This is a place that I have been every year for 9 years and will continue to go during Winter Fest. It is the one place that can take you away and doesnt cost alot.
Very Good place to stay!
I was impressed with the service that my husband and i received at the shular inn everyone was friendly and the room was clean and above expectations for the price we got it at and housekeeping kept us in everything we needed without asking..we give the shular a very good review on our stay..keep up the good work! you will keep us coming back!
