We have been staying at the "Rivergate Inn" for going on 23 yrs.It has never been called Boutique Rivergate Inn until recently. Now that Pat and Fred Maples( the real owners for as long as its been there) have resumed management ,it will retain the christian family oriented atmosphere that has long made this the cleanest, warmest and most pleasant place to bring your family and friends.You can be assured that the Maples are true American born and native Pigeon Forge folks, so there is no worry of bugs and curry and garlic in the air,just great rooms, views and good old mountain fresh air.

Room Tip: All the rooms have thier own unique quality. None are bad.

Thank you so much for your great review! Pat & Fred are back home! :) Leasing the motel was not a good idea. We very much apologize to those who had a bad experience while we were gone! The Sevier County original American Family owners are back! We have high standards for our guests/family! The only thing we want our guest to worry about is what to do next in Pigeon Forge! :) Thank you so much for staying faithful to us we promise to do our best to keep all of our guests/family feel like they are at home. We hope you keep wanting to stay with us each time you come to Pigeon Forge! Hope to see you soon!

Having stayed at The Rivergate on many ocasions, we once again had a great time and experience on our most recent trip to the great Smokey Mountains. Pat and Freddie Maples are the owner/managers of this Motel and go out of their way to assure you have a comfortable and plesant stay. They have been away in Florida for some time, but want everyone to know they are back in Pigeon Forge and the Rivergate is open for business. My favorite experience is sitting on the patio in the evening overlooking the Little Pigeon River. that runs behind the Inn.

Room Tip: All rooms are equal and have a patio overlooking the river

Thanks so much for staying with us! We are so glad you enjoy staying with us! Our balcony is a favorite for many guests/family! You may also want to know we are working on upgrading & refurnishing our balcony lounge chairs. So during your next stay....prepare for relaxation! :) Pat & Fred want everyone to know the real owners are running the Rivergate Mountain Lodge! The comfy quiet rooms still have the high cleaning standards. We do our best to be sure you are having a great vacation! Can't wait to see you again soon!

The minister was great and personable. He married us right in front of the old mill. It was beautiful and economical. We didn't get to stay at the inn but definitely are for our anniversary because it was so memorable for us. He took pictures with our camera. He had an audience from the street above...I thought that was great. He actually showed us a back road to get to the outlet mall due to the traffic that weekend. Pricing was great and the office staff was too. It was a wonderful decision. Can't wait to go and stay at the inn!

We stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Staff was great. Price is right. The go cart track is a little loud but you don't hear it in the room. Would stay here again.

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at in my life. It was perfect for getting away and having peace and quiet after a night on the towns of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The rooms were fantastic. Very, very clean and proper. Kudos to every member of the custodian team for their great work. The Rivergate Inn was also very family friendly. Although I did not use it, I thought the Wedding Chapel was an excellent feature for a hotel in such a lively town. The staff were very friendly and happy to help whenever needed. The only downsides were that there were no spa, fitness center or pool. However, I did not mind one bit. If you are looking for a great, friendly, clean place to stay while you visit Pigeon Forge; Rivergate Inn is the place to go. You won't find a better place to kick back and relax.

Room Tip: Nothing special, just the basic notion. Earlier you book, the better.
