We just returned from our first visit to the area since the fires. We did not realize it had gotten your beautiful lodge until we drove by. So sad to see it gone. Hope you are able to rebuild and help create more and new memories for so many. God Bless You!

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.

This has been our favorite and only place we stay when visiting Gatlinburg. The owners are great and are always accommodating to our needs. The location was beautiful and gave us the opportunity to start many adventures from there. You will be missed, we can only hope that you choose to rebuild a similar place. Good luck and thank you...

We have stayed here so many times with our kids and grandkids. Was there the night that it burned down. Never thought it might not be there after the fire if we went back. Please rebuild. One of the best motels in Gatlinburg. Friendly staff. Good donuts. Always clean. Just wonderful.

It is such a shame that this lodge burned down. I loved to stay here. The tucked away location on River Rd was quiet, but still close to the businesses. Loved the large rooms with fireplaces and porches. You will be missed if you don't build back.
