The Island of Pigeon Forge – Hotels

Our neighbor across the brook is the Island at Pigeon Forge.

Our brookside looks right across to Margaritaville on the Island. It’s that close.

But you don’t have to swim over (although some have!).

Walking from our hotel to the Island in Pigeon Forge
– 3 blocks amble, 6 mins max.

Our guests can amble down our main street – the parkway, or take the back way along the brook to the bridge to the Island. It’s just three blocks – actually one but it’s a long block so we’re taking some liberties and calling it three.

There are some Pigeon Forge hotels that are closer to the island but none of them are fortunate enough to have our brookside frontage.

What is the Island like? We think of it as our town square. We think you will, too.

  • Located just off the Pigeon Forge Parkway, The Island in Pigeon Forge is packed with things to do in the Smokies.

  • The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel—it’s 200 feet tall with an amazing view of The Great Smoky Mountains.

  • Pull up a rocking chair and enjoy the Island Show Fountain (pretty fantastic spouts of water dancing to bluegrass and country)

  • Check out our retail shops, restaurants and eateries, rides and games, live music, attractions, buskers, and entertainers.

  • Whether you came for a wedding, your honeymoon, or just a family vacation, come visit us in Pigeon Forge. We’re just down the road from Gatlinburg and open 10 a.m. daily year round.

The Island in Pigeon Forge does not have a family friendly hotel on it. The one hotel on the Island is about Margaritas and drinking. We, just a three block walk from the Island are a family friendly hotel for Pigeon Forge – pool, fishing, sing-alongs by the fire-pit, pancake breakfast, kids play room. Family memories are our focus and the Island can be part of that with its dancing fountain, town square feel, and family fun restaurants.
