Thank you for allowing us to use the Missionary pricing/visit to Pigeon Forge this year. My family lives in Knoxville and this was a particularly great treat to see them, but be able to drive and hike and visit a few shops during our short stay. The accommodations were lovely, the kids (and dad) loved the hot tub although I understand that is to be removed soon. IT was so big for us we really should have included family in the visit... and will plan another trip accordingly. Great hospitality, the weather was rainy and cold in April, but we still had a very nice time. We do not get vacations like this so it was definitely worth the 5 hr drive from the Charlotte area.
The other reviews covered most of what I would say... wifi was sparse, grill --- new one needed etc... but otherwise Bring your church group, staff or ? You won't be disappointed.
