This was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. It was so cozy and the staff was the best. The reviews that say it is dated are correct, but we all found it to be charming and this hotel won our hearts....More

Best place to stay in the Smokies! So sad about the Riverhouse Motor Lodge. My family's home away from home. So hope they are able to rebuild soon. Glad Riverhouse at the Park is there as a temporary retreat. But, it doesn't take the place...More

This was the only place we stay when we come to Gatlinburg about twice a year. Can help them out by staying up the street at River House At The Park. At The Park has great rooms, donuts, and orange juice.

I stayed at Edgewater last week, and the remains of the Riverhouse are still there. It appears to me no attempt has been made to clear away the ruins or shell or the foundation of this property since the fire.

Well this bites. The only ghost experience I've ever had and the room burned. Not to mention the rooms were large by todays standards and had large fire places.

Their rooms are all non smoking and they won't allow you to smoke on the balcony. They ask that you smoke on the opposite side where the doors are.
