Elegant furnishings plus cabin charm meet retro touches and modern conveniences throughout On the River, a 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom, pet-friendly cabin mere steps away from the Little Pigeon River in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. This peaceful waterfront property for 2 not only offers direct access to the serene river but also a long list of great amenities to keep you relaxed and having fun.

Enjoy a screened-in deck with an outdoor hot tub and rocking chairs, a fully equipped galley kitchen, a cozy living area with a big screen TV and stone fireplace, a relaxed reading nook and mini library, a large tiled rain shower, and a spacious bedroom with a soothing copper tub and comfy king-size bed. Combining these great amenities with an optimal location less than 1 mile from downtown attractions, On the River is an ideal escape — perfect for romantic weekends away, an unforgettable honeymoon, or extended anniversary vacations.

Living Room
Step into the inviting living room, featuring a plush sofa, matching recliner, big screen TV, and stone gas fireplace. The light wood flooring and ceiling complement the dark walls in between, and the stylish décor and an antler chandelier pair well with the cream tables and patterned area rug. Snuggle with your spouse and a soft throw on the sofa, pop in a drama DVD for movie night, or curl up with a romance novel by a toasty fire. Oh, and don’t forget the lounge area nearby, boasting cushioned seating, a mini library, and lovely river views. It’s the perfect place to unwind with a good book, update social media, chat with your honey, or sip champagne.

A bright contrast to the warm living area, the galley kitchen is fully equipped, providing all the appliances, tools, dishware, and prep space you’ll need for homemade meals. Home to mint-green, retro-style appliances, a white farmhouse sink, open wood shelving, plus stainless-steel touches, whipping up tasty dishes, in-between-meal munchies, and midnight snacks in this kitchen will be a piece of cake…which you can bake at the cabin or bring back from town. Hot breakfasts on the stove, fresh veggies and fruits from the fridge, steaming cups of joe from the coffeemaker, parmesan-topped popcorn from the microwave, and a dishwasher to take care of the mess — the kitchen at On the River sure does deliver!

Dining Area
Just off the kitchen lies the quaint dining area, harboring a woven rug, wooden table for 2, and a modern chandelier overhead. While dining on self-prepared meals, reheated leftovers from town, or delivery is good, why not go the extra mile for this romantic occasion and splurge on a private in-cabin chef? Or you could opt for a gift basket filled with goodies instead — yum! Either way, the dining space is sure to come in handy for delectable meals, card games, or checking emails.

Ah, the spacious, restful bedroom awaits with chic furnishings, including a king-size bed with extra pillows, a copper tub, metallic chandeliers, and bedside lamps. There’s even a mounted flatscreen TV for entertainment. After exploring the area and hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you’ll enjoy a muscle-relaxing soak in the copper tub — add lavender-scented candles and calming tunes to really enhance the luxurious experience. Or maybe you’d prefer a wash in the tiled rain shower with room for 2. And the bathroom vanity with his-and-her sinks will make getting ready for town or bed a breeze.

Outdoor Spaces
Picturesque to say the least, On the River boasts a top-notch riverfront location, making the great outdoors a place you’ll want to be throughout your Gatlinburg stay. After smooth travels along flat roads, pull up and park up to 3 vehicles (there’s room for a trailer) in the paved, motorcycle-friendly driveway, grab your suitcases, head 3 steps up into the cabin, and make yourself right at home.

On the screened-in deck, you’ll find a bubbly hot tub for relaxing riverfront soaks in addition to rocking chairs, which pair perfect with a glass of sweet tea in summer or a mug of hot cocoa in winter. Reconnect with nature on a deeper level as you head to the outdoor seating area, featuring cushioned Adirondack chairs with throw pillows, lush overhanging trees, and the rushing Little Pigeon River. Breathe in that fresh mountain air and listen to the sounds of wildlife as you unwind with a cup of coffee in the mornings. And don’t forget to fire up the charcoal grill for evening barbecues!

Other Amenities
On the River has it all — and then some! Use the high-speed wireless internet to plug in for a bit, update social media, browse local deals, and check out our blog. Best of all, this humble riverfront abode is pet friendly, meaning Fido is more than welcome to take in the wondrous sights, head-turning sounds, and intriguing scents of Gatlinburg!
