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 pleased

  • 5 of 5

This chalet was beautiful. Very cozy! Housekeeper keeps it clean and provided enough linen for my crew. The sound of the river was very relaxing. Sounds like soft pouring rain all day. The only problem we had was someone opened our bottle of wine. 😱

Big, clean, close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

One of the best places we've ever stayed. The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just off the main drag. We loved the river view and the huge deck. The king size beds were very comfortable and everything we needed was provided. We would definitely love to stay here again.

Had a good time

  • 4 of 5

We started off with a little problem. The directions to the chalet were a little confusing since we weren't familiar with the area. Just note when given directions, go through the first stop sign and turn left onto the second Circle Dr. It shouldn't be a problem then.

Our door lock code didn't work so after a few tries, we had to call Kathryne, who is local to the area to unlock it. She arrived within a few minutes and opened the door. We must have been given a different code. Did not have a problem after getting inside.

That was the only problem that we encountered on our weekend stay. Everything was clean and well stocked. The sound of the river in the back on the deck was wonderful to listen to and very calming. The chalet was very easy to access from the parkway and there were no steep mountain hills and driveways to climb. It was very nice to come back after a day of shopping to enjoy the nice quiet neighborhood. I would definitely recommend this chalet for a week or weekend stay. It will be added to my list for a repeat visit.

Very nice place. Convenient location. Could have been stocked with more dishwasher detergent. Was only left one pod for a 3 night stay and very little dish liquid. Other than that it was great. Will look for availability on this place first for our next Pigeon Forge visit.

Owner's Response: Sorry but we not claim in any way that we will supply dish soap or any other disposable idem in our cabin except a started supply until you can get to the store to purchase your own.

Lovely place, however.....

  • 4 of 5

The chalet is in a residential area but considering it is right on the river makes it exceptional. However having said that, it could use some upgrades. Furthermore, the place had not been cleaned when we arrived and the heat was off. The weather was brutally cold outside and inside. We found a name on the refrigerator and called her. She came and apologized for the mix up and took care of cleaning, etc. She even covered us with a blanket while she cleaned. The smoke alarm was chirping, she went after a battery and my husband, 77, climbed on a chair and put in the new battery. The communication with the owner left much to be desired. Three days ahead of the trip I requested the address, method to get in and other pertinent information. He insisted he had sent the information but certainly had not. Honestly he verged on rudeness that I questioned whether he had sent it or not. I even had to contact VRBO customer service and they were wonderful. Though a lovely place, I would not stay there again. This is the first and only time I have had any difficulty dealing with an owner with VRBO.

Owner's Response: Thanks we're so bad she wanted to stay longer but I had it rented back to back. Identify her all the check in information but she was looking on the VRBO site for it. Sorry she was disappointed.

Wonderful location and served us well.

  • 5 of 5

River Safari is located off the main drag of Pigeon Forge, which kept us located close to things we wanted to do without going up and down the mountain. Although, we did that too. The view of the river is awesome and the home accommodated everything we needed. We'll be back. :). Thanks so much!!!!
