From the Knoxville Sun Sentinel: “Margaritaville resort coming to Gatlinburg”
A new resort, dubbed Margaritaville, will go up soon on the site of the former Best Western Twin Islands at 539 Parkway in Gatlinburg.
Demolition on the closed Best Western has already begun, according to Lauren Miller of Knoxville P.R. firm Moxley Carmichael.
The new Margaritaville resort is the work of Margaritaburg LLC, headed by Knoxville developer Bob McManus, who has been behind several vacation-related businesses in the area.
More information, including renderings of the Margaritaville resort, is to be released Friday.
