Original Greystone Hotel – 1952
About the Greystone Lodge on the River
The Greystone Lodge on the River was built for you. It all started back in 1962, when Jack Miller, Sr. set out to build a hotel that the entire Gatlinburg community would be proud of, more than just a place to rest, but an experience filled with good memories and reasons to return. Into every stone and piece of lumber he infused his love of the location on the river and his vision for a one-of-a-kind destination where families and couples could retreat into the Great Smoky Mountains and wander the shops, restaurants, and attractions knowing friendly, top-notch service and a clean, comfortable room awaited them.
Mr. Miller, his son Jack and daughter Pam still own the Greystone. Being one of the last family owned and operated properties remaining in Gatlinburg, it is important to the Miller family to continue offering the same wonderful experience the hotel has offered to thousands and thousands of guests for over 50 years. The family recently invested $7.5 million for a total renovation. Which means we put heart and hospitality first, so maybe it’s not just one thing, but a lot of things put together that makes The Greystone Lodge on the River so extraordinary.
Make us your go to place to stay in Gatlinburg. We’re sure you’ll become a regular.
We love where we are. We love what we do. And we love sharing it with you.
Mr. Miller with his daughter Pam and son Jack Jr.
