Where is Country Cascades Water Park Resort?
You will find Country Cascades right off the main road (Hwy 321) that runs through Pigeon Forge, TN. The hotel is close to everything, though not too much is safely walkable from there so you will still need to drive where you want to go in most cases.
We loved the central location and ease of getting in and out of the hotel area. There is plenty of parking with a lot between the two main lots and an overflow lot just a few more steps away.
Country Cascades Room Tour
Wondering what the Country Cascades rooms look like? First, you should know that there are two different buildings or towers at Country Cascades. The Country Tower is the original building and the Summit Tower is a newer addition.
Obviously the Summit Tower has newer rooms, but the rooms in the original tower have recently been refurbished so either way, you’ll be in a room that was updated in either 2017 or 2018.
We were in the Summit Tower and it had pros and cons. For us, one of the obvious pros is the fact that there are balconies in all the rooms. This is not the case in the original building.
That said, the indoor pool, hot tub, registration desk and breakfast are all in the original tower so you will have to walk across the parking lot to access any of those things. This isn’t a huge issue unless it’s pouring rain like it was for most of our trip and we had to make a run for it to get to breakfast.
Aside from the rain, the tradeoff was worth it to have the outdoor balcony with a view of the pool.
Country Cascades Amenities
Speaking of the pool, this is the gem of the whole property. With a large zero entry pool, two water slides, a children’s splash pad and an indoor pool and hot tub, Country Cascades has it all for water-loving families.
Due to the weather, we only had a few sunny hours so we made the most of them! Oscar and I enjoyed the water slide and we all took a dip in the pool.
We need to go back when the sun is out so we can get the full package. The kids loved it!
That said, we love that this hotel also has an indoor pool. A little rain couldn’t keep my boys out of the water. They were begging to go every day right after breakfast!
The indoor pool and hot tub are just around the corner from the dining room so wear your suits, get some grub and hop in the water when you’re done.
Above the registration desk in the same building, there is a small gym if you want to get a workout in before or after your swim.
This is not something I took advantage of. Ahem.
Free Breakfast at Country Cascades
My family loves a good hotel breakfast, especially when it offers substantial food and not just pastries.
Grandma’s Kitchen at Country Cascades has it all from bacon and eggs to cereal to make-your-own waffles and pancakes. You’ll also find coffee, tea and juice.
This space is typically only used for breakfast, which runs from 7-10am. During these hours it’s super busy (the later in the morning the more people there are) but it’s pretty empty in the afternoons.
We saw a couple different families who had ordered pizza in the evenings and set up for dinner. One of them even had a board game to play, which looked super fun.
Heed the sign. This sign was spot on during our visit. Yes, it was Easter weekend so extra busy, but if you don’t want to battle crowds and long lines for waffles, set your alarm and get there early.
Country Cascades is not a remote location so you won’t have much of a mountain view here. That being said, it’s convenient to all the popular Pigeon Forge attractions and the pool is enough to bring us back for another visit when we need somewhere fun to spend a family weekend together.
