The perfect balance of Smoky Mountain history, modern amenities, vintage touches, rustic mountain charm, and chic décor, this 1-bedroom pet-friendly 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!
Living room 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!
Bedroom 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!
Outdoor spaces 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.
Other amenities When you’re away, you want to stay connected, so On River Time offers high-speed internet for your convenience. Find out what events are happening via our blog, or get ideas for romantic couple’s attractions, in-cabin recipes, and more. This Gatlinburg cabin also features a washer/dryer, a flat gravel driveway (and flat roads for motorcycles!), 2 parking spaces, and only 1 step up into the cabin for easy arrivals.
On River Time gives you easy access to downtown attractions, shops, and restaurants, so you’ll never be without something to do – if you can get yourself to leave this comfy cabin. When you want to get out and explore, check out:
No Way Jose’s Serving up big portions of sizzling fajitas and savory burritos, alongside ice-cold margaritas, this Mexican favorite in downtown offers a fun atmosphere and delicious fare.
Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies Spend hours exploring underseas with your love at one of the top-rated aquariums in the nation. Walk beneath the sharks, watch dive shows, touch rays, play with the penguins, and meet some incredibly unique underwater creatures.
Kilwins Want a romantic treat to take back to the cabin? Step into Kilwins – you’ll smell it from the street – for juicy chocolate-dipped strawberries, decadent caramel apples, rich truffles, hand-crafted kettle corns, and so much more.

"I stayed in this cabin for the weekend. When I initially booked the cabin, I thought I would be bringing my 9 lb. dog. I decided to ask my 19 yr old son to keep him for me instead because I knew it would be an additional hassle, and I wanted to relax and enjoy hiking over the weekend. Unfortunately, upon leaving, I was charged $200 for pet damage fees which I did not cause. I called and talked to several people, and it wasn't until a day later that someone returned my call. I advised that the damages were not caused by us since my dog was left at home with my son. They had no proof to provide me of any damage done, other than to say there were feces in a carpet, which I never saw. I find this company unethical and they have essentially stolen $200 from me. I felt as if I was being accused of lying and it was offensive that anyone would assume I would make such a story up. It's unfortunate, as I planned to come back to this property again; however, as a result of how I have been treated, I will never do business with this company again and recommend no one does. They need to have a better system of checks and balances in place so they don't accuse an innocent person of someone else's responsibility." Verified guest on 08/20/2019
We want to apologize for the inconvenience and frustration caused during this stay as we were unable to refund the damage deposit due to the property damages upon your departure. While we wish we had the opportunity to hear and be made aware of these issues during the stay so that we could ensure it was handled before your departure, we, unfortunately, were not made aware and could not confirm when the damages occurred. We also would like to apologize as it was not our intentions to make you feel offended and will work to ensure our guests are better aware of the damage deposit policy. Although this stay was perfect other than your departure we hope this experience does not keep you from visiting the Smoky Mountains again in the future!

"The most peaceful, relaxing and romantic place I have ever stayed in. The On River Time cabin has been perfect!"
"We very much enjoyed our stay in “On River Time!" Was a great experience. Would definitely recommend using Cabins for You."
"Such a beautiful place to stay at! Close to downtown so you can walk around without having to take your car out."
"The cabin is beautiful and has everything you need. Its within walking distance to downtown but far enough not to have all the noise. its next to the river and beautifully done and the company is quick to respond if you need anything. definately recommend"
"On River Time was the perfect blend of an old, rustic cabin with modern updates. It made for a wonderfully romantic getaway. Very convenient to the parkway in downtown, so we didn't have to pay for parking. We will be repeat customers!!!"
"We had the cutest little cabin, in walking distance to the Parkway in Gatlinburg. Easy check in and check out. Our cabin was so cute and cozy. We stayed five nights and didn’t really want to leave. The sound of the river was so relaxing. Thank you Cabins for you!"
"We had a short stay at On River Time and absolutely loved the cabin and location. Beautifully decorated with a great riverside location, it’s hard to believe you are just a short walk into downtown Gatlinburg. We will definitely look to stay here again! Booking was a cinch. Everything was effortless."
"We stayed at “On River Time” and fell in love with it’s charm! The decor is so fitting and yet upscale too. We arrived during a rainstorm and loved the carport which kept us dry as we unpacked. The location is perfectly close to everything. We slept the best we ever have when on vacation- thanks to the awesome bed and the sound of the flowing river. We most definitely will be staying at this cabin again!"
"Super cute cabin in a great location for walking into Gatlinburg."
"We stayed at the cabin On River Time. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and immediately set the house alarm off. This was totally our fault, but also happened on our last stay. We were able to contact someone and get the alarm turned off before the police could show up. We really enjoyed the hot tub and the sound of the river on the back porch. Gatlinburg is an amazing place to visit and we enjoyed being so close to town. The cabin is very cozy and couple friendly. I also highly recommend using the claw-foot tub. :-) Some people complained about the noise being so close to town, but it was not an issue for us at all. We were fortunate enough to see some snow on our last day and it made it even harder to leave. We will definitely book this same cabin in the future!"
