About JOSH FRANKS

I grew up in west Tennessee went to college at UT Martin. My wife Barbara is from Chattanooga. We now live in Florida , retired from our own business. We also have and manage a beach condo near St Pete, Fl. We have done extensive travel through out the world. We honeymooned in the Smokey Mountains and it is still one of our favorite places.

JOSH FRANKS purchased this chalet in 2005

Why JOSH FRANKS chose Pigeon Forge

It is so close to all the activities. Our favorite place is Dollywood and we can be there in 10 minutes. We just fell in love with the river and never get tired of watching it flow especially after a rain storm.

What makes this chalet unique

No steep crooked mountain roads. Once you get inside you never know you have neighbors. In fact the neighborhood is great for walking is very clean and well kept. Why would you want to stay any place else?

Peaceful, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

River Safari is a very nice place to stay. The house is nicely laid out and has everything you will need for your stay. Nice location, close to the strip but far away enough from the noise. Very peaceful neighborhood. The back deck with the sound of the river is very relaxing. Coming back in the evenings enjoying the hot tub was also a wonderful feature. We would definitely recommend and will be staying again on our next visit to the area.

We had a great time staying at River Safari. It was very clean and looked just like the pictures. We would stay there again and tell others to book there too.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The House was clean and nice. Perfect location close to everything you want. The river was nice. It was a little cold for us to enjoy the deck much but with the sounds of the water running it would be a great area to relax in spring, summer, and fall. Had no issues finding the house. My daughter loved the whirlpool tub. Would and prob will stay again.
