About JACK 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.

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?

Very nice house in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house was very clean and very nice! The location was perfect as it was not far from all the things to do but just far enough away that you wasn't able to hear all the noise. Perfect view from the rear deck looking out onto the river, hot tub was great and the house was perfectly clean! Will love to visit again in the future!

Not horrible

  • 3 of 5

Property needs updating but otherwise was fine. Owner and house cleaner had a misunderstanding so the house was not really clean.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and loved safari river chalet. On Monday we went to Gatlinburg, Cherokee, and Bryson City. Tuesday: We attended Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, Wednesday we went to Dollywood, Thursday: spent time in Cherokee at Casino and won a couple bucks playing Blackjack, then attended Comedy Barn Theater that night. Friday: we went to Ober Gatlingburg, took the chair lift to the top of the mountains, (great view), enjoyed festival then shopped in Gatlinburg a couple hours. then attended the water show under the Ferris Wheel in Pigeon Forge. Saturday headed home back to Florida. Didn't get to enjoy the porch too much at Safari River as the leaves were falling but the chalet was very nice and clean. Give it a 5 rating.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 2 of 5

The house had a great layout and location. However, the contact name given NEVER responded to us when we called on a couple of issues. The upkeep condition is fair. Cleaning ok in house but the deck never seems to get attention. The owner took several days to respond once we contacted him. Overall, slightly disappointed.
