“Quiet, Calm & Close”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Rented our condo for a week's stay while my husband worked. The arrangements were easy. We arrived at 11.30pm on the first night, got our keys and were in the condo with no problem. The condo was 2 bed main bed had king bed. Nothing to complain about the arrangement of the apartment. The accommodation was really quiet, no listening to guests in other condos even though we were on the second floor. The location of the resort is behind the apple barn near the river, so whilst amazingly close to everything it was super quiet. The balconies overlook the river which was really calming. Little things like no hair dryer & the lack of water pressure in the shower were minor. I would recommend a stay here if you are heading to the Smoky Mountains.

Second time here. First was great. Had river view. This time we had a "river view room" actual was a room overlooking the office and gyms red roof. If you stood on balcony and looked very hard right you could seethe river. After settling in we went to put our stuff in the bathroom drawers. They had short black curly hairs in three of them. On second day went to use a washcloth. It had a 10" blond hair in it. Might be my last trip here.

Room Tip: Check for hairs.

Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us at the Appleview River Resort and thank you for sharing this review. We are so very sorry the condo was not as clean as you or we expected it to be. This is certainly not up to our standards and we have had this issue addressed. We hope you will give us another opportunity to earn your business in the future.

Have never been more pleased with any resort or lodging of any kind, than we were at Appleview. Cannot say enough wonderful things about this place! To start, upon first contact with the manager, Barbara, I was immediately impressed with her professionalism and willingness to make not only our stay at Appleview pleasant, but was also helpful with area information. The creek running along the resort makes for such a peaceful, gorgeous setting. You are very close to the main drag, yet completely out in the country. Our condo, River Beauty C421, was beautifully furnished, extremely clean and laid out well. All of the rooms were plenty spacious. The workout facilities, gameroom and pool areas were clean and orderly and all anyone would need. Our group consisted of ages 7 to 70...and we all fell in love with it. Most peaceful getaway I've ever experienced. We will definately be back!

Room Tip: C421 River Beauty...great condo, clean, spacious, beautifully appointed

Accommodations were great! Awesome view!! Lots to do, in just minutes away. Quiet and very peaceful location. Barbara, the office manager, was just wonderful. She was very helpful and most accommodating. Would definitely go back. My kids, ages 16, 20, and 23 loved it. They kept busy doing something everyday.

Room Tip: The higher floors give you a more scenic view.

Although we have been married for 41 years, I chose the Honeymoon Suite to spend four days and nights in; It was beautiful! Everything was in its place, and extras were included in the kitchen (set of knives, toaster, towel paper, dishwasher detergent, dish detergent, etc.). I wanted to stay where I would be really safe and comfortable in alone just in case I didn't want to go anywhere which happened a couple of mornings. Everything was nice and clean when we arrived. The king size bed was very comfortable. The main problem we encountered because of my health issues was the toilet being so close to the floor which is the only reason I didn't rate it "excellent." It looked like it should be in a first grade classroom. Everyone (9) agreed when they finally came to our suite and saw the toilet. The other reason I chose the Honeymoon Suite was that I could connect with WIFI; however, I was very disappointed that I couldn't connect with WIFI on my laptop, but thankfully I could with my iPad. We loved the two balconies, and we even grilled on the gas grill one evening. Barbara, the manager, was very nice and friendly, and she suggested places for us to visit and eat. We stayed in the corner suite which was very quiet most of the time.

Room Tip: Our corner suite was very quiet. The resort wasn't crowded since we didn't go on a holiday...

We stayed at Appleview Resort for seven days. It was wonderful. Very clean with large windows. We just love this place. It is convenient to every place on the Parkway. You can go out on the town and go back to a great, peaceful hideaway. Barbara is a gem!!! She can help you find whatever you need. Our a/c went out, but we were moved to another condo just as nice. This is where we will stay when traveling to that area. We were late checking in. We had trouble with the door code, and Barbara came right away and helped us. Thanks to Appleview for a great vacation! !!!!

This was our first "condo rental" experience and after staying at Appleview I don't think we can go back to the hotels....We stayed in Bldg 3.. a three BR unit....We arrived at 6pm to get our key from the box, we were greeted by Barbara (complex Manager), who, even though it was after hours went out of her way to help us locate our unit and bring us a luggage cart...she was very professional and helpful......We opened the door to our unit and it was very fresh smelling, clean, and in very good condition...we had a very nice view of the river and mtns and we even got to watch the fireworks from our third floor balcony...The resort is very nicely landscaped and kept clean. Noise from the area and from neighbors was extremely low if any at all. Our unit had plenty of towels etc..everything in the unit worked as it should have...there were four of us (two adults and two kids) and everyone gave appleview two thumbsup...The location was also great as it was close to the strip, but off the strip just enough to have a peace and quite when desired.....
