Wilderness features an attractive rustic theme. Visiting over the holiday seasons is one of the best times as it is decked out with Christmas trees, decorations, and special festive events.
Lodging at Wilderness includes 3 different options: rooms at Stone Hill Lodge, suites at River Lodge, and luxury sanctuary villas (located a mile from the property). Free shuttle service is provided to from the Stone to River Lodge (leaves every 10 minutes or so). Stone Hill Lodge offers both Queen and King size rooms, including a King executive suite. Room amenities include: coffeemakers, fridge, flat screen TV, and admission to both water parks. Stone Hill Lodge houses the Salamander Springs Outdoor water park, a fitness center, a full service bar and grille, an arcade, and a gift shop. Suites at River Lodge are perfect for families or large groups traveling. Some of the suites feature multiple bedrooms, fireplaces, and a full kitchen. River Lodge houses Wild Water Dome indoor water park, Lake Wilderness Outdoor Waterpark, an arcade, paint your own pottery classes, a fitness center, mini-golf, a full service restaurant and deli, a gift shop, and a beautiful lobby which is decorated for the holidays. We stayed at Stone Hill Lodge because we booked at last minute and all the other rooms were sold out due to the race. Our room wasn't anything special, however, the rustic theme and large windows were nice. The room is fairly big and includes all the traditional amenities like a fridge, coffee maker, and a flat screen TV. Had we booked the room early, I probably would have booked a suite at River Lodge, both for the bigger space and easier access to the indoor water park.
Room rates were extremely affordable for all the amenities. We paid $140 for one night, which isn't bad considering the included water park admission.
Overall, I was satisfied with our stay at Wilderness. Although, we didn't have enough time to explore everything at the resort, we were impressed with what we did see. Wilderness is conveniently located within driving distance of both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, although there are more than enough activities on-site to keep you and your family occupied without ever leaving.
