While there are lots of great free activities at the Appleview River Resort we thought we would put together a list of our 8 favorites to share with you.
8. Fishing along the Little Pigeon River
Bring your fishing poles and favorite lures and throw out a line. With small mouth bass, trout and other fish, you are sure to have a great time with friends and family trying to make the perfect cast and catch the big one. The flowing waters of the little pigeon river and the deep pools along our resort offer some great fishing opportunities and even if you don’t catch the big one, you are sure to have a great time fishing at the Appleview River Resort.
7. Taking a stroll along the river
Starting our list at #7, enjoying a leisurely stroll on our river-walk. With lots of wildlife, fish and the soothing sound of the Little Pigeon River, walking along taking in the beauty God has created is inspiring and a relaxing way to spend an early morning or afternoon.
6. A little friendly competition in our Game Room
Our game room offers plenty of opportunities to challenge friends and family to a little friendly competition. With a Pool Table for a little 9 ball action, air hockey with electronic score board (to keep everyone honest), Foosball for those who really want to get serious and even a multi-cade Arcade with all the classic games from Pacman and Centipede to Galaga, DigDug and Donkey Kong. Setting a new high score might be just the challenge you need to secure your family game room dominance.
5. Reading your Bible and praying while enjoying the sounds of the river on the porch at our clubhouse
Grab the Good Book or your daily devotional and head on down the covered porch at the clubhouse to enjoy some quiet time reading, meditating, and praying all while enjoying the soothing sounds of river and nature all around. Sometimes, a little quiet time with the Lord is just what we need to get us in vacation mode. If you need some inspiration, we encourage to read Romans 12:2, this is the Appleview River Resort “memory verse” and a verse of scripture that we try and live by daily.
4. Working up a sweat in our Fitness Center
Our Fitness Center has everything you need to keep up your fitness regimen while staying with us at the Appleview River Resort. With two treadmills, two elliptical machines, exercise bike, free weights, abdominal, pull-up and dip equipment, bench press machine, free weight bench press, lateral pull-down machine, butterfly machine, dumbbells, leg press and much more. You will not have a problem working up a sweat! After your workout, enjoy a few minutes in our Sauna!
3. Enjoying a dip in our Pool or a soak in the Hot Tub
During the spring, summer and fall pool season enjoy a little R & R pool side at the Appleview River Resort pool. Catch some rays in one of the many chaise lounges, bring your kids favorite pool toys and splash a little in the pool. We even have a one and half foot kiddie pool for even the littlest guests. Once you’ve had your fill of the pool take a dip in the private hot tub, a great way to wind down from a day of hiking, shopping or playing in the Smoky Mountains.
2. Playing with the kiddos at our playground “The Appleview Ark”
The Appleview Ark is our ship shaped riverside playground. With recycled blue rubber mulch, the Appleview Ark seems to be floating along. With lots to explore on and in the ark, with a climbing wall, swings, slides and much more. This playground is a great place for the little ones to play and explore.
1. Grabbing a tube and floating down the Little Pigeon River
Bring a tube from home or stop by the office for a loaner tube and head on down to the Little Pigeon River for a float trip like no other. You can tube around our peninsula to the Apple Barn, which is about 90-minute float trip and only a short walk back to the resort. As you float along you are bound to see all types of wildlife and one unique part of this floating adventure is the soundtrack. That’s right, sound track! As you float along you will pass behind The Titanic Museum and the play wonderful music in the parking lot which becomes your very own sound track as you float along. No other tubing adventure offers its own musical melodies and don’t forget to take a dip in the swimming hole along the way!
