Location: Gatlinburg, Tennessee
The perfect balance of Smoky Mountain history, modern amenities, vintage touches, rustic mountain charm, and chic décor, this 1-bedroom cabin for 2 will have you sitting back and soaking up your escape On River Time. It is style, comfort, and romance all blended into 1 beautiful cabin made for making memories. It is bright, cozy, and cool, making you feel at home while also pampered and swept away.
Now peacefully situated right on the river in downtown Gatlinburg, On River Time was originally located in historic and scenic Cades Cove. And while you still get a feel for that history, the inside has been completely remastered and beautifully decorated to give you the best of the old and the new. Better still, on top of everything you’ll find inside the cabin, On River Time boasts a location that can’t be beat. It’s within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg, situated next to the cozy River Romance and the charming Simone’s Cottage.
As you explore this cabin, take time to notice the details, from the fun throw pillows and whimsical light fixtures to the pops of color and the mix of textures. It all adds up to one cozy Gatlinburg cabin you won’t soon forget!
Each space in On River Time is full of interesting details, and the living room is no exception. An industrial-style light fixture is a fun retreat from the rustic tone that the exposed wood beams set. The all-wood room is warm and cozy, and it features a big screen TV on the mantel and a coffee table big enough for playing some cards or having a cheese and local wine spread on a relaxing night in.
Curl up on the plush sofa or in the big, comfy, matching chair for a romantic night with just the two of you. You can flip on the big screen TV to watch a romantic comedy, just sit back and talk, or flip on the lamps and delve into some good books. However you spend your time here, it’s sure to be a place where your worries can just melt away while you enjoy a slower pace of life…On River Time.
Kitchen & Dining
Open to the living room – perfect for chatting while making romantic meals – is the lovely kitchen of On River Time. Its wood walls, open shelving, and updated amenities will make it a place you truly want to spend some time. The powder blue vintage-style refrigerator will be the first thing to catch your eye, giving the kitchen a fun and fresh feel.
As you cook, take advantage of the island where you can prep meals, and amenities like the blender, microwave, stove/oven, and beautiful farmhouse sink. The well-equipped kitchen has pots, pans, knives, utensils, and tools for making some great homemade meals. Even the pretty dishes will make you want to have at least a few of your meals in the cabin!
The island also serves as the breakfast bar/dining table, with 2 cushioned bar stools for having meals together. Make your favorite meal for a special night or order our candlelit dinner to have the ingredients for a romantic night ready and waiting for you!
A honeymoon, anniversary, romantic getaway, or peaceful weekend to yourself calls for a truly awesome master suite, and On River Time doesn’t disappoint. Climb into your cozy king-size bed here before flipping on the flatscreen TV mounted on the wall, turning on the lights on the headboard for some late-night reading, or drifting off to sleep for some of that much-needed rest on vacation.
The bright, breezy room features painted walls, lots of windows that let in natural light, cool colors, and white trim. At the end of the bed, a sitting area with two stylish upholstered chairs, a reading lamp, and an ottoman makes for the perfect place to unwind with a book and a glass of wine or watch some TV after climbing out of bed in the mornings.
On the other end of the room, find a beautiful claw foot tub where you can climb in, pour in some luxurious bath products, and soak away your stresses. There is even an elegant chandelier overhead, elevating your “pamper me” time even more. Close the blinds, run some hot water, and enjoy some peace and quiet in your own cozy cabin.
The master bathroom – hidden behind a sliding barn door – in On River Time offers more of that rustic charm blended with modern appeal. A reclaimed door serves as the towel rack, a vessel sink gives a farmhouse feel, and the beautiful, modern shower features subway tile and an all-glass door. Getting ready here will feel like its own little retreat!
One of the great things about On River Time is that it gives you so many opportunities to spend time in the great outdoors – on the river. Start with the screened-in deck overlooking the river. Here you can climb into the hot tub to soothe tired muscles after days in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or have a cup of coffee or a meal at the table for 2 facing the water.
If you want to be even more in-tune with nature, take the steps down to your own patio area facing the water, offering Adirondack chairs, a side table, and a charcoal grill where you can toss on some steaks or kabobs on nice days. You’ll spend many peaceful evenings just enjoying the breezes and the sounds of the river here. On River Time also features a nice flat yard (and fenced backyard), so you can toss around a football in fall, play some bocce ball, or just enjoy having your own little space for stretching your legs in the fresh air.
When you’re away, you want to stay connected, so On River Time offers high-speed internet for your convenience.
