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?

Relaxing and hope to return
This location was very quiet even with it being in a regular neighborhood and close to other homes.
The two king sized beds were perfect.
I was able to communicate to your housekeeper, that I had intended to use the couch bed, but it was not vacuumed and linens on it ahead of time, ***as I requested through Josh when we booked this, but it wasn't done, so we did not get to use the sofa bed.
The flood lights on the higher part -left front portion of the house above the driveway, DO NOT WORK so you need a flashlight if you want to use the back stairs or go out to your vehicle. Please fix this as it is a safety hazard and security risk.
The light over one of tubs had a bulb blow while we were there.
Please provide this site with a pool skimmer, to get the leaves out as it does have a lot of trees that overhang the deck.
We did not get to use the hot tub Friday night as it was not heated, we found out later that there was work done on it and it was filled just before our arrival.
I suggest updating your info sheet that is on the fridge to let guests know that in order to lock the keys BACK in the lock box, you have to re enter the passcode, to reset it, and only then you can lock the keys back up, without doing this reset of the lock box door, it will not release the lever to open or close the lock box.
I will recommend this to my friends that ask me where we stay in the area. I will also look for info on other of your properties.
The above mentions were just informational so you have updated communication from your guests, if you don't know then you cant fix things :)
I trust that you want to know and that you will improve on the above notes.
The housekeeper was spotless other than who stayed before us had a moonpie party and left many empty wrappers by their bed, which i thought was kind of funny.
To renters, PLEASE respect this as it may be just a rental property to you, but you were accepted and granted this privilege to stay here, so be clean and pick up after yourself and respect other peoples property.
Don't leave it for someone else to pick up after you.
Thank you Josh and Katherine.
The house was clean and had a great layout! But wished at least one of the bathrooms had an easy walk-in shower. The huge garden tub was really hard to get in and out of. The only other thing was the deck off the back was really dirty. I know its really hard to keep clean because of all the trees and no roof over the deck but it would have been great to sit and enjoy the beautiful river. Other than those two things the property is very nice. Oh I just thought of another problem. We packed light because we knew there was a washer & dryer but when we arrived there was a note on the dryer saying it was not working but would be replaced on Thursday which was great but we were leaving on Thursday! We had to go out & buy more underwear!! LOL
Overall it's a very nice place but we probably won't be back. God bless
Very nice. Great location.
Very nice place!!
July 2018 vacation.
We very much enjoyed our stay at River Safari. The view of the river and the sound of the water was very relaxing. The rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated. The large windows in the living room brought the beauty from outside into the house.
The location was perfect. Close to everything on the Parkway but enough off the main strip that you felt like you were in an oasis out in the woods. Would book again if we take another trip to the Pigeon Forge area.
Thank you for sharing your experience, John! I am glad that you enjoyed the river and the convenience of the location!
Please let us know if we can help you book a stay with us again!
We loved our stay at the safari. When entering the property we felt at home. The chalet was so clean! Our housekeeper Kathryne called us before we got there to let us know a technician was coming to fix a switch. She was there to greet us and stayed till the tech was done. What a wonderful woman! We all talked like we were long lost friends. We could tell that she is very dedicated to her job. She was so warm and caring about our stay and wanted us to really enjoy our time. It's devoted people like Kathryne that makes vacation a happy time. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. We will definitely be coming back to stay. I recommend this property for your stay in pigeon forge. Again, thank you for a great, clean and comfy place for us to stay on our wonderful vacation.
