Recent Tennessee reviews

  • Really a neat place.

    "We had a wonderful time staying in Russellville. The owners were awesome and really went beyond to make our trip a great one. We played in Nashville most of our trip and the drive back and forth was very easy. We would recommend Roy's Pit BBQ for home style cooking and really cheap. It's not just BBQ. I would also recommend going to Franklin and playing downtown. Plenty of cool shops."

  • 4 girl getaway

    "We recommend this property. Everything was as advertised - there were no unpleasant surprises - neat, clean, great location. We read a previous review about cockroaches, but there were NO roaches. We were 10 minutes from Dollywood and other attractions and close to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the National Park. Great relaxing view from the deck with the sound of the train in the distance. We arrived early and housekeeping was still there. He was very friendly and responsive to all our questions. Parking was on a steep incline, but we were in the mountains and by week's end we became proficient mountain road drivers which was helpful when driving through the Smokey Mountains. We would visit again in a heartbeat."

  • Girlfriend getaway

    "My girlfriends and I (6 total) just spent an awesome few days at this great condo. The location is absolutely fantastic! And although it's right downtown, it was still very quiet. We were able to walk just about everywhere! The owners are pleasant and easy to deal with. And although the lighting wasn't the best for putting on makeup etc, we would still highly recommend this condo for your next getaway!!"
