Left on 07/13/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jul 13, 2013Stayed Jul 2013
We booked this as a last minute getaway for my birthday weekend. The house is spacious and has been decorated nicely although the couch in the living room seemed like it may have seen better days. There's a deck and grill which my wife took advantage of while we were there for 2 nights.
It felt like there were several personal items in the house, thus making my wife feel like we were encroaching on someone's home. I suggest, if supplying courtesy items, like soap and shampoo, to nix open bar soap and perfume bottles in the baths.
There had been flash flooding in the mountain area earlier in the week, but the owner, Mike, was easy to contact and talked to us about the current conditions there. Provided at the house also were brochures and printed information about things to do in the area. The info about the area waterfalls was especially helpful.
We would definitely stay here again as it was nice for the price! Read more
We place pump hand soap in each bath. Sometimes a guest leaves bar soap. These are left as a convenience for guests, who are free to use their own supplies.
There have been many upgrades done this year. This property is used exclusively as a vacation rental.
RiverDance Lodge is the best value in the Smokies!
