Retreat on a Smoky Mountain Vacation
The Park Vista provides guests with a true mountain experience. Surrounded by miles of scenic hiking trails our hotel near Pigeon Forge, TN is also near popular trout fishing and fly fishing spots. For guests interested in a more relaxed experience, explore the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, a motor trail beginning outside of our hotel. On your drive explore an abundance of nature trails including the popular Rainbow Falls.
Let our knowledgeable staff help you plan your off-site activities, such as hiking, shopping, or arranging tickets to local attractions. From Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Show to a country music or comedy production, there is something for everyone.
Swimming, strolling through the gardens, sitting by the firepit, playing checkers in the lobby or getting your selfie on with Yona our resident Bear (not to worry – he isn’t real!). Relaxing or re-invigorating – whatever your preference is – we got this!
There is so much to see and do in Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains you may have to extend your stay or plan another one soon! We’ve made a list of some of the most popular and you can ask our Guest Service Agents and Concierge for more information and assistance with directions or purchasing tickets!
Something for Everyone
Take a swim in our oversized, multi-tiered swimming pool, and hotel indoor water park or relax in front of a serene, mountain sunset. From our front door, take the trolley to many of Gatlinburg’s attractions like Ripley’s Aquarium and Ober-Gatlinburg.
Meet unique Smoky Mountain artisans at work in quaint shops or shop at over 160 factory outlet stores. You can also embark on an adventure golfing, skiing, or horseback riding. Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies is full of fun for everyone! If you want to get wet, Smoky Mountain Rafting is the place to go.
