The Original Greystone Hotel – 1952
About Our Family-Owned Hotel in Gatlinburg
At The Greystone Lodge on the River, we’re all about family. We’re one of the last remaining family-owned hotels in Gatlinburg, and that’s part of what makes us so special. Our family built The Greystone Lodge with one thing in mind: our guests. 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 — a hotel that was 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 place where families and couples could venture into the Smoky Mountains and explore Gatlinburg’s shops, restaurants and attractions knowing friendly, top-notch service and a clean, comfortable room awaited them.
Mr. Miller, his son Jack and his daughter Pam still own The Greystone Lodge today. Being one of the last family-owned and operated properties remaining in Gatlinburg, it is important to the Miller family to continue providing guests with the same wonderful experience the hotel has offered to thousands and thousands of guests for more than 60 years. The family recently invested $7.5 million for a total renovation of the hotel to ensure guests have the best experience possible. The renovation included a new look and new things for guests to enjoy. At our Gatlinburg hotel, we always choose to put heart and hospitality first, which is what makes The Greystone Lodge on the River so special.
Come join our Greystone Lodge family and enjoy a relaxing stay in the Smokies!
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.
