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.

JACK FRANKS purchased this chalet in 2005

Why JACK FRANKS chose Tennessee

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?

Quiet and private with all of the comforts of home!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cozy little chalet on the river. Wonderful home to relax in after a day full of activities in town. When your sitting on the back deck listening to the river and relaxing in the hot tub it's hard to believe you are only minutes away from the main tourist attractions of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. It's truly a home away from home at a very reasonable price!

Much better than any hotel!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in River Safari in Pigeon Forge. Very nice, was easy to find, very comfortable, roomy, so nice coming in & relaxing after sightseeing all day - all the comforts of home. Good value for the price & we would definitely stay there again if we ever get back in that area; couldn't see everything we wanted to see in the five days we were there. Mr. Frank's was so very nice & helpful with our questions. You would love this house on the river.

Great vacation chalet!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 wonderful nights! We had a small issue upon arrival with the lock code. One phone call and 5 minutes later the problem was solved. The chalet was clean and beautifully decorated. Location was perfect, a couple minutes away from the parkway which puts you in the middle of the action, and just far away for peace and quite in the evening. We enjoyed the deck in the mornings and evenings. Thanks Mr. Franks!

Don't judge a book by its cover!

  • 2 of 5

Arrive and inspected the home over. First stop, the bathrooms. Both bathrooms had mold and mildew on both the shower curtains and bathtub tiles itself. There was black mold clogged up in the Jacuzzi tubs filter at the bottom easily visible to the eye as was all the mold (I took pictures!) There was an abundant amount of pubic hairs in the tube as well. Pubic hair and dust in the corners of the floors, looks like your typical walk through house cleaning service! Toilet seats were not cleaned underneath and yellow with urine.....this was just the bathrooms folks. Couldn't use the Jacuzzi outside because there was trash and leaves inside the Jacuzzi along with milky looking water! Really? Back to the inside....very dusty on all the decor as well as MAJOR dust underneath the couches and chairs with food crumbs and dead bugs (took pictures again!) The walls haven't been cleaned and or painted in a long time with multiple scuffs, etc....I can live with The mattresses were so hard you couldn't even sleep on them! The outside as well as some of the inside are falling apart....literally. Stormed one night and the spare bedroom ceiling started leaking (took pictures again!) We called the owners (which never responded to any of our previous emails) to complain. He said he would send over his cleaning crew....well, that' nice and very convenient for us while we were on vacation. If we weren't under a time restraint from finding another place, we would have left and asked for our money back. You would have thought we would have gotten comp't something in return..... nothing, even emailed how dissatisfied we were and was gonna leave a negative review......nothing! Bottom line, this is your typical take your money and run because your vulnerable and you haven't seen the place vacation rental home with the owners who are old and live in Florida. I can't say they ever come to look at this place, but they don't look good and for what we paid for a week, you could get better accommodations at a local Red Roof Inn that's been redesigned. Don't judge a book by its cover. PS. Did I mention I took photos of all this?????????

Owner's Response: Boy I can not believe these folks were so unhappy. She did call and complain about the bathroom and I did offer to send the cleaning people but she did not want them and said she already cleaned it and just wanted me to know. I must of made this lady mad some how. She didn't think to highly of me did she. This is a total fabrication to get a refund. She thinks the rate was high but she paid what everyone else does. Tha lady that cleanes the place is very dedicated and she cannot believe all the lady wrote. A leaking roof and we don't know it, come on.

Wonderful place to stay :)

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay:) Our chalet was clean and furnished with towels, washrags, bedding, hair dryer, kitchen supplies, ice maker etc. The place was beautifully decorated and done up. The hot tub was wonderful, as was our huge jetted tub! The deck could have used a power-washing, but it was beautiful anyways. The river behind the home was beautiful. It would be great for tubing. We might have to try that next time we are there. Definitely wouldn't mind returning, we would just like to stay longer next time! WORTH THE MONEY!
