Editor’s Review of RiverStone Resort & Spa

RiverStone Resort & Spa, opened in 2006, offers a little slice of luxury in the Smoky Mountain gateway town of Pigeon Forge. The all-condo resort is tucked away off of the main drag in a peaceful 15-acre setting between the Little Pigeon River and the Gatlinburg Golf Course. Yet, its location is also extremely convenient to all the family-friendly restaurants and attractions Pigeon Forge has long been known for, and the resort is also right down the street from the ever-popular Dollywood amusement park and Dollywood's Splash Country water park. (In fact, the resort offers packages with tickets to Dollywood and Splash Country.) ... more RiverStone is also within an easy drive of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited national park in the U.S.

RiverStone has 185 condos, some of which are privately owned, although most are available for rent. Units have anywhere from one to four bedrooms, and each condo has a full kitchen, a gas fireplace, a washer-dryer, and a balcony. The kitchen appliances are all top quality, and the condos are beautifully decorated with elegant furnishings. The resort has a spa that's great for a little parental pampering, while the kids will love the lazy river (complete with waterfall), the atrium pool (with its retractable roof), the game room and the playground. A walking path perfect for short family strolls runs along the river, where you will encounter resident ducks who are only too happy to be fed by anyone who happens to be toting an extra slice of bread or two. less

RiverStone offers one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom condo units. One-bedroom units range from 616 to 688 square feet and sleep from four to six. Two-bedroom units range from 1,347 to 1,353 to square feet and sleep from six to eight. Three-bedroom units (1,444 square feet) sleep up to eight, while the four-bedroom units (1,938 square feet) sleep up to 10.

All units have gas fireplaces and balconies, and some of the two-bedroom units in buildings 1, 2, and 3 have screened-in patios accessible from sliding doors in the kitchen. About 60 percent of the units have a golf-course view, with 10 percent offering mountain views and the remaining 30 percent offer a view of the Little Pigeon River.

If you need a crib, RiverStone has a limited supply of Pack-'n-Plays available at no charge. Although the resort does not offer rollaway beds, all the units have queen sleeper sofas in the living rooms. All bed linens and towels are provided. Each condo has a washer and dryer and comes with a starter package of laundry detergent, as well as a starter supply of soap, shampoo, dishwasher detergent, toilet tissue, facial tissue, and trash bags. (Note: Although most units have bathtubs, the one-bedroom units in building 4 have only showers.) Condos also come equipped with hairdryers, irons and ironing boards. Wi-Fi is free in the rooms and throughout the resort, and the widescreen, flat-panel televisions in each unit have extended cable packages.

The kitchens have everything you could possibly need, including dishes, utensils, baking dishes, a teakettle, a colander, measuring cups, a knife set, an eight-piece set of non-stick cookware, a pitcher, a blender, a toaster, kitchen towels and other useful items.

Although everything at the resort is within easy walking distance, the lazy river is most convenient to buildings 3 and 4, while the pool and playground (as well as the spa) are most convenient to building 2.

River Log Cabin
In addition to its condo units, RiverStone also offers the River Log Cabin with a wrap-around porch and a loft complete with a pool table. The cabin has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and sleeps up to four people.
