The Resort at Governor’s Crossing Announces Additions for 2019

Sevierville, TN – The new 67 Unit expansion at The Resort at Governor’s Crossing is celebrating the topping out of the brand new $12 Million condominium tower. The new units will feature room layouts for families of varying sizes and with special emphasis on multi-generational units. The new building is designed to bring families together for the ultimate Smoky Mountain Vacation. Don Collier, President of the HOA says “When the rental management company proposed this addition we challenged them to develop unit types that would compliment what we already have instead of replicating what already exists in the other two buildings. They conducted a lot of research with guests and are well positioned to enhance the overall experience at The Resort and offer a lot of amenities that families have wanted but were unable to get before.” The new 1 Bedroom Unit, for example, features a private master bedroom with a king size bed and a sleeping galley with two bunk beds. The largest unit is a 3 Bedroom Unit and will accommodate up to 18 guests. Detailed units layouts will be published later this year.

This $12 Million investment is important for not only the Sevierville economy, as well as the entire Southeast. “When we began the design process I knew for this project we needed to support the communities that have made us so successful. We looked at a lot of our major markets and then what they manufactured in those areas. Our tile is coming from Crossville, TN and carpet from Georgia. Our furniture is all out of Virginia and textiles from Florida. The Resort at Governor’s Crossing is not only made in America, it is made here in the Southeast,” shared Kay Collier-Pittman, President of Governor’s Crossing Leasing and Management who operates The Resort. The new units have been upgraded to include granite counters in the kitchen and bath, 50 inch televisions in the living rooms. All units are fully equipped with the conveniences of home like a full kitchen, washer and dryer and a full living room for family gathering.

With an ideal location in the Smokies, The Resort is just minutes away from everything. “Guests really love the easy access to Dollywood from Collier Drive. Many are surprised at just how close we are to Dollywood and all of the other wonderful attractions in the area. When you combine that with all of our amenities and luxury accommodations it is easy to understand why over 60% of our guests have stayed with us before,” stated Tabitha Lippi, Director of Operations. The Resort features a wide variety of amenities like Indoor and Outdoor Waterparks, Putt-Putt, and Pirate Ship Playground. “With the addition we wanted to create a new guest space to round out their family getaway. We created Firefly Cove a new family area with lots to do!” said Kay Collier-Pittman. The new area will feature fire pits with comfortable seating, a picnic grounds equipped with grills, a new kids playground, and a hammock relaxation zone. That is not the only new area coming to the Resort. They are also expanding the Outdoor Waterpark with the brand new “Adventure Springs.” According to Don Collier, “This new area is a joint venture between the HOA and the developer. It is a large play structure using over 1,500 gallons of water a minute.” It will feature two slides, a dual racer slide and a fully enclosed slide surrounded by more than 30 interactive elements encouraging interactive play with kids. What really makes it exciting is a 300 Gallon Dump Bucket that drenches the whole play area every few minutes. Adventure Springs will open in the spring of 2019.

Governor’s Crossing Leasing and Management & The Resort Board of Directors invite you to join them Thursday, October 18th at 10:30 AM for the Topping Out Ceremony at 225 Collier Drive, Sevierville TN.

Third Water Slide for The Resort

The Resort at Governor’s Crossing announced yesterday (1/16) that it would be adding a 3rd waterslide to its indoor and outdoor water park facilities. The third slide will be located at the outdoor pool area adding to its array of waterpark amenities. Instillation of the slide is targeted for completion in late April of this year.
Also, The Resort announced the addition of a “Log Roll” to its indoor facility for 2010. The “Log Roll” will be similar to the old lumberjack challenge of staying upright while the log is spinning in the water. The “log roll” can be used individually or to challenge another person. The “Log Roll” will replace the Gator that was installed in 2009, the Gator will move to one of the outdoor pools.  Instillation of the “Log Roll” is expected to be completed sometime in April.

New Height Requirements for The Resort’s High Speed Water Slides

In listening to you, our guests, voice disappointment with the manufacture’s 48 inch height requirement on the indoor high speed water slides we are pleased to announce a new 36 inch height requirement. After many months of negotiations with the manufacturer and their representatives they have agreed to allow any child 36” or taller to use the slides.

Children 36” to 48” tall will be required to wear a life vest provided by The Resort to use the water slides.  Anyone 48”or taller will still be able to use the slides without the vest.

The Resort at Governor’s Crossing strives to make all guests, including our younger guest’s stay an enjoyable and safe experience.

Gator Sighting at The Resort

The Resort at Governors Crossing has added a Gator to its waterpark’s large indoor pool for kids play on. With a manufactures height restriction for use of the high speed slides we wanted to add things for our smaller guests to enjoy. We also have added a Squirtin Whale and a Squirtin Frog to our zero entry pool. These two new amenities for the smaller tykes will squirt water as the child is seated and rocking back and forth on them.
