Spend a night or two in a rocking chair by the fire pit making memories with friends and family. Take a dip in the indoor pool, outdoor pool, or the hot tub. You and the kids could spend hours being entertained by swimming around! Of course, we already mentioned our breakfast, but it’s so good we gotta mention it again! You’ll find a little bit of everything for everyone. We also offer guests a picnic area at the back of the hotel, so you can enjoy a quick lunch before heading back out for the day!

So many of the attractions cost a pretty penny, but not everything in Pigeon Forge and the surrounding areas costs money! At The Old Mill Square, you can walk across the bridge and enjoy watching the water wheel spin. You might even spot some ducks swimming along the river, and they’re fun to watch for hours! Patriot Park is right next door, and there are walking trails for everyone to enjoy. If you don’t mind a short drive, you can always head into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park since it doesn’t cost anything to explore the mountains!
