Has good kitchen amenities, which can be very helpful for a week long vacation. Good location. It is more like a rental but it works well for a family stay. No room service but not a big deal because of kitchen amenities.

Fresh new upgraded furniture, carpet and bedding, and a beautiful cut stone fireplace gives this fully equipped condo the feel of a beautifully furnished mountain chalet. An indoor and outdoor pool, hot tubs and Monday Night swim party for kids with poolside movies make this one of our favorite vacation spots. Actually we own a timeshare right next door, but each visit to Gatlinburg, we choose the hospitality of THIS resort. Great staff, beautiful rooms, balcony a view, fully equipped kitchen and one king master suite with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower, a second bedroom with ONE QUEEN AND ONE DOOUBLE BED (which is rarely heard of) sleeps the family in comfort. We value our vacation times and choose them wisely. To us, this is a wise choice.

Room Tip: To hear the mountain stream...ask for a room on the back side.

We stayed five nights at the holiday inn Gatlinburg whilst visiting the smoky mountains. what a beautiful place. An deal location for the national park. The smoky mointains are stunning. we stayed in a one bedroom condo. it was spacious and very clean, a welcome treat to come home to after a days treking. A couple of nights were quiet chilly and having a gas fire in the condo was great. you can walk into the town in under 5 minutes where there are lots of shops and restaurants. the pool are was beautiful set out in a wood style lake setting. we would definately return here again.

WOW, RACHEL2606, when I get comments like yours a Senior Reviewer and swopess a Top Contributor, it tickles me so! I can’t agree more, my Smoky Mountains are among the most beautiful areas in the country. I am so happy that you found your villa to be spacious and clean. The fact that you saw our pool areas as a “wood style lake setting” just tickles me to death! We actually used a product called Jewel Scapes, which are different brown colored glass beads in the surfacing of the pools to look more like a river or lake “swimming hole”. I hope you will come back and stay with us on your next Smoky Mountain Adventure. Thanks again for such a generous review. Don Ward

The condos were typical and spacious. The pool area a tad small but we were only there for one night and didn't jump in. There were plenty of people enjoying it during the evening.

They have figured out a good way to get you to listen to a sales pitch to attend their ownership meeting.

They do not give you your parking permit upon check in. You have to go to a special desk. At that desk, they give you your ticket and then spring the pitch on you. I knew it was coming so when he started in, I told him that we were not interested. He got pretty snippy and came back at me with 'you're not interested in 80k points' (we are Priority Club members). I told him no and he just kept going. I told him that I currently had over 200k points and did not need any more and again, we were not interested. He dropped it at that point. There is a fine line on selling and not annoying your guests. The other club vacation resorts I have stayed in simply offer you a free gift to visit the desk. Then it is your choice.

Other than that issue, the stay was fine. The unit was clean. The staff friendly. We would stay again but still will not be open to an ownership meeting.

We have visited yhis resort twice ao far once in April and once in September. Thoroughly enjoyed both stays. Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The resort is beautifully done and there is so much to do. Shops, restaurants, attractions, wineries, hiking, you name it. Can't wait to go back!

This is the 2nd time we have been at this resort. We all had a wonderful time 2 years ago and equally great time this year. They have updated the rooms since 2 years ago, what a nice surprise. The staff were all helpful and wonderful, they are really respectful to the owners. I love the smoky mountains, with all the great activities in walking distance or a short drive. I will be back over and over again.
