The living is easy at Riverfront Relaxation. The 2-bedroom condo unit is just a mile from downtown Gatlinburg, so you don’t have to battle traffic and fight for parking when you want to check out the myriad attractions; you can simply walk or hop on the trolley. What’s more, the condo itself offers all sorts of amenities that ensure your stay will be an easygoing, relaxing one.

As soon as you step into Riverfront Relaxation you’ll be charmed—by both the elegant furnishings and the lovely, leafy view through the glass doors that connect the living area to the balcony. Surprisingly spacious, the covered balcony overlooks the Roaring Fork Creek. The burbling of the creek is a soothing soundtrack as you sit out on the balcony, enjoying coffee in the morning and cocktails at night. It’s a beautiful spot to start or end your day.

Riverfront Relaxation is just as serene inside. The living area’s sofa and armchair are so generously cushioned, that once you sit down, you may never want to get back up! While you sit, you can watch a movie on the flat-panel TV, which receives 100 digital channels; that should keep you occupied for a while! In winter the fireplace will add an extra layer of warmth and comfort to space, and in summer the ceiling fan will delight you with its gentle breeze.

Adjacent to the living area, the dining table seats 4; another 3 people can saddle up to the gleaming breakfast bar. If you’re entertaining friends, the kids will probably be more than happy to eat “by themselves” at the bar while the adults linger at the table. And speaking of entertaining, the condo has a convenient wet bar as well.

Given that Riverfront Relaxation is so close to so many restaurants—choose from steak, seafood, Mexican, Italian, Cajun, fondue…—you might not have planned to cook much during your stay. One look at the well-equipped kitchen could change your mind, however. It is loaded with appliances, from a full-size refrigerator/freezer to a coffeemaker to a dishwasher, has plenty of counter space and elbow room, and thanks to the condo’s open floor plan, lets you look out at the scenery, watch TV, or chat with the others while you cook.

Each of the 2 bedrooms offer a king-size bed, a private full bathroom, and a TV. For that reason, Riverfront Relaxation is as well suited for 2 couples traveling together as it is for a family of 4. There’s plenty of storage too—no living out of a suitcase here.

Riverfront Relaxation is located in the Gatehouse Condominiums, and when you stay here in the summer you’ll have free access to the outdoor swimming pool and patio area. And year-round you’ll have free parking. In fact, because of the condo’s proximity to downtown, you can leave your car parked during most, if not all, of your stay. If you don’t want to walk the mile to downtown, you can take the trolley. Once there, you have a wealth of entertainment options: the Guinness World Records Museum, an aquarium, mini golf, thrill rides, a tram that takes you up to Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area and Amusement Park…

Or you can hop in your car and drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in just over 5 minutes. The most popular of the country’s national parks, it’s a must-visit, with hiking trails, fishing, wildlife, waterfalls, and historic cabins. Riverfront Relaxation is also less than a half-hour from the hot spots of Pigeon Forge, including Dollywood and the Titanic Museum.

It’s easy to have a fabulous vacation when you stay at Riverfront Relaxation. See for yourself; make your reservation today!

Fall in the Smokeys

The Property was in good condition. Perfect distance from down town. Close enough to walk bur far enough to be out of the congestion. It had a good selection of kitchen dishes and cookware. Could use a couple of extra coffee cups. Beds were comfortable. The only negative was the carpet although it had been cleaned had many stains on it.

Host Response (May 20, 2015):

Thanks for the review and for staying with us! The review confused us a bit - our company offers the standard 4 pm check-in and 10 am check-out that all vacation rentals have in our area. In addition, we also offer early check-in and late check-outs on request. As is standard, we do also request that some simple items (i.e. take out trash and start dishwasher) be taken care of before leaving. Is that what you are referring to? We were happy to have you as a guest and hope to host you again soon!

Great location

This was a great place to stay. Close to town and the park, plenty of room with nice size bathrooms. The balcony overlooked the creek and was spacious. I have stayed in a cabin with my husband before but the roads to get there were difficult to navigate on the dark. This trip was just my sister and I so this was perfect and felt very safe. Would recommend this condo and would come back and stay here again. Very easy to book, check on and check out was excellent.

Meet our needs.

We have stayed at Gate House Lodge many times, this was our first in this unit. The location is wonderful, hearing the creek is very peaceful. Our complaints would be: 1) sliding glass door has no drapes/blinds, etc. - open for all the world to see inside day and nightm and 2) the box on the door that holds the key is a nightmare. You must put in a lock code, like a bike lock, then push down a lever while also pulling out and then it opens and you get the door key. DO NOT forget to place the key back in the lock box and leave it laying inside. If you leave the key inside and the door shuts, you are locked out. Management refused to give another key. The door lock itself (after retrieving the key), was in itself a puzzle, one had to turn key to the right while pulling in on the door handle to get it to unlock. Would not stay here again unless they change locking mechanism to a touchpad minus a door key - just too much trouble. The creekside bedroom has rather old furniture, but a lovely secretary displaying some books. The bed is very firm and tilts down at the head, not too comfy to sleep with your head down and feet higher. On the plus side this is a larger unit, the living area is larger than non-corner units. The unit was very clean, smelled clean, no evidence of bugs, mold, or mildew. Overall, it met all our needs, and if they change out that lock mechanism, I would definitely stay here again.

Host Response (October 15, 2014):

Thanks for your positive comments about the Gatehouse Condos and the beautiful, perfect location. We love this property as well! I am happy we were able to work out the early check-in for you as you requested. :) The lockbox on the door, which is a standard Master Lock Combination Key Box, has been replaced with the style of lock you prefer. Out of all the guests we have ever hosted at any property with this type of the lock you were the first to ever complain about it. From your review, it sounds like it worked perfectly and you just prefer the other style better - is that correct? The unit door lock has been replaced with the type where no key is required (uses a code). We will have maintenance check out the bed. Thanks for your positive comments on cleanliness - we try really hard to keep all of our properties really clean and appreciate you noticing! We hope to host you again soon.

Very satisfied

We have stayed at the Gatehouse several times and we have never been disappointed, this unit was no exception. Very clean, great location, beds slept good, and the balcony over the creek, as always, can't be beat for the perfect place to relax!
