The Inn On The River: Pigeon Forge’s Perfect Hotel #hosted

by Paula on August 4, 2015

Are you among the 11 million folks that will visit Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, this year?  If so, you NEED to know about The Inn On The River!!  We visited Pigeon Forge last week and were graciously hosted by General Manager Karl Thomas.  He even gave us a sneak peek into what’s upcoming as far as their continuing renovations and improvements!

First off, The Inn On The River is an older property that is being redone from the ground up.  It was a chain and now is privately owned.  Can I just tell you how perfectly located this hotel is?  It’s right on the banks of the Little Pigeon River at traffic light #2 (all of the directions given throughout Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg use directions from the closest main traffic light–much easier than learning street names in an unfamiliar area!).  The Inn On The River is one of the very few hotels located on the banks of the river, giving it a peaceful and beautiful aspect that is unrivaled in the area.

And convenient!  We were mere minutes away from all of the attractions we wanted to visit.  If we had wanted to, we could have even left our cars parked at the hotel and taken the free trolley.  (We didn’t this time, but will definitely do it next time!  It looks so convenient and easy.)

As Karl showed us around the property, his pride in the all of the improvements being implemented was obvious.  He told us of the new pool upgrades happening later in August/early September (properly timed after the summer rush is over).  Note:  The Inn On The River is one of the few hotels in the area to have both indoor and outdoor pools.  The color combinations are beautiful and attention has been paid to choose function too:  the new flooring tiles have non-slip properties.

I’ve talked about slightly uncomfortable topics here before.  Bullying, periods, sex….yes, you probably expect some of those topics, but here’s one you might not have expected…. sensitive bladder leaks.  Yeah, I know.

And you know.

Pee happens.
