He wanted the hotel to offer more than just a place to stay, but a whole experience for guests — and he succeeded! For over 60 years, we have been welcoming guests to The Greystone Lodge on the River. When you stay with us, you’ll fall in love with not only the comfort we provide, but the atmosphere. Guests return year after year to experience their vacation at our Gatlinburg hotel!

2. Only 1 Mile from the National Park

One of the best parts about a Smoky Mountain vacation is spending time exploring the mountains! The Greystone Lodge is just 1 mile from the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. That means you’re just a short drive from hiking trails, waterfalls, wildlife, gorgeous scenery, and more! You’ll love spending the day hiking through the mountains before returning to a clean, comfortable hotel room to relax.

3. Every Room has a Private Balcony
