The ducks are the highlight of this hotel. I really enjoyed feeding the ducks every morning. The grounds are very well kept and clean. It has a very nice covered pavilion and fire pit. This hotel is in a great location- very close to Dollywood. The breakfast was plentiful including pancakes, sausage, biscuits and gravy, and fruit. The indoor pool...
