Although I do love oceans, deserts, and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with the sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more, to become more. -

Welcome to Smoky River Vacations! 
This site offers information on the Sweet Magnolia, one of the few vacation properties in the Smokies that offers both mountain and river views, with no steep roads and only a minute drive to the Parkway.  We also share some of our favorite activities and restaurants in the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, TN areas.  The mountains are calling, the only question is, will you answer?


A resort condo in the Smokies


Sweet Magnolia at Appleview River Resort

Tucked away in an unbeatable location, this gorgeous property is truly a hidden gem. 

Just over 1,000 square feet this 2 bed/2 bath condo is part of the Appleview River Resort and sleeps 6 people comfortably. This newly updated condo boasts a Modern Farmhouse style with a splash of Industrial.  Our favorite part of the condo is the fully stocked coffee bar, with hot chocolate, tea, coffees and creamers. The best place to kick back and relax after a long day of exploring is the large balcony overlooking the serene Little Pigeon River. With the mountains off in the distance it's one of the few places in the area where you can enjoy both mountain and river views.
