Stay minutes from the excitement of downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee, at Gatlinburg Poolin’ Around! This charming cabin blends modern amenities and rustic mountain details, offering a classic yet elevated stay in the Smoky Mountains. Warm wood walls pair with fun pops of color, along with comfortable furnishings, the conveniences of home, and entertaining extras.

With 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and space to sleep up to 4 guests, this Gatlinburg cabin near downtown is perfect for couples, a few friends, or a small family. The cabin is even pet friendly, so you won’t have to board your dog when you head out. Just bring your 4-legged friend along for the adventure!

Use the fully equipped kitchen to make breakfast in the morning and take it to the outdoor table on the patio on a nice morning. Listen to the sounds of the water flow by as you sip your coffee and plan out the day. Back inside, climb into the 7x14, 4ft continuous depth indoor pool spa to unwind. The living room features plush leather sofas, an inviting fireplace, and a big screen TV.

On a day around the cabin, shoot some pool on the pool table, sit down for meals at the kitchen table, watch TV, or stay cozied up in bed in the beautiful bedroom suite. Along with a king-size bed, it offers large windows with views of the trees and water below, a flatscreen TV, and a nice sitting area with 2 cozy chairs and a small table. It’s perfect for chatting with a bottle of wine, sipping tea in the morning, or reading a book and relaxing.

When you want to get out, you’ll be within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg. Take a stroll downtown to grab a bite to eat, go shopping, watch a dinner show, or play at area attractions. You can also ride the trolley around downtown! Visit Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, hike and explore in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, play miniature golf, and more. And while there are many streams in the area, you’ll be set right on the Pigeon River.

Living Room
Make yourself right at home in the living room of Gatlinburg Poolin’ Around! With a large rug, a cozy sofa, a loveseat, and a matching armchair, there is ample space for seating your group. Gather here in front of the fireplace to stay warm on those cold Smoky Mountain nights. Bring your favorite board games to play at the coffee table or a deck of cards. 

Unwind with shows on the big screen TV or turn on some music with the CD player. It’s a great place to sip some cocoa, read a book, reconnect, and relax. Kids can watch cartoons as you prepare breakfast in the morning, or you can open your gifts around the holidays. The pool table is next to the living room, so you can challenge someone to a game.

A charming and convenient space, the fully equipped kitchen in this Gatlinburg cabin has all you need to make drinks, brew coffee and tea, reheat leftovers, bake sweet treats, cook meals, and whip up snacks. A nice window sits above the sink, so you can enjoy the views as you prep meals. There is a dishwasher for easy cleanup, along with a microwave, oven with glass stovetop, coffeemaker, kettle, kitchen utensils, dishes and glassware, and more.

The kitchen counter has 2 barstools where you can sit in the mornings and look out over the trees. Keep the refrigerator and freezer stocked with fresh ingredients, popsicles for summertime, and all your favorite drinks and snacks. Then sit down at the 4-person dining table with upholstered chairs that match the décor.

The bedroom suite in Gatlinburg Poolin’ Around is beautifully designed and decorated. It’s made for comfort and relaxation, with a king-size bed, a nice feature wall, a large dresser so you can unpack, a flatscreen TV, and a lovely sitting area with 2 plush chairs and a small table.

Reviews for Gatlinburg Poolin' Around

  • "We spent Christmas in one of the cabins with our children and grandchildren and we had such a great time. Cabins were very nice and no problems what so ever. We highly recommend Cabins for You for your next vacation."

  • "We stayed at Poolin' Around last year and couldn't have had a better experience! Thinking of coming back in the next month or so!"

  • "The “Pooling Around” Cabin was perfect! It was within walking distance to the shops and restaurants located in downtown Gatlinburg! We stayed in October and the fall decor was adorable. It was the perfect location and “home feeling” for a getaway trip!"

  • "This was our first time visiting Gatlinburg, TN and we had a fantastic time! The Cabin that we chose was perfect for us. The location is within walking distance of downtown and is situated on a beautiful stream. It is also pet-friendly so we didn't have to worry about boarding our dogs while we were there. It was all in all a very relaxing trip! We fished off the back patio, cooked-out on the supplied grill, explored the mountains as well as nearby Pigeon Forge, played pool in the living room area, and relaxed in the huge hot-tub/pool. Before we left we even reserved the same cabin for later this year. Well done Cabins for You!"

  • "Great little cabin tucked away right on the river - and walking distance to Anakeesta! Trolly pick up right up the street as well to take all around Gatlinburg. Pool was relaxing, space was clean and looks to be recently updated. We take trips to TN couple times a year - this was our second time at cabins for you and maybe my all time favorite. Can’t beat the location!"

  • "We had a very pleasant trip during our stay. The thing that most impressed us was the coziness of the place. The attractions were very impressive for tourists and were nearby and available. We cannot wait to come back with our whole family."

  • "Really cute but lace . Perfect for 2 people . Really close to downtown and amazing river view ."

  • "There was an issue with the swimspa, they did satisfy us, however it was a known issue and we were not informed until we called about it for several days. Why 4 instead of 5 stars. However, we would use them again. Overall a pleasant experience."

  • "Cabins for You-G'burg made it possible for us to have a Very Merry Christmas '23. Last min trips are the only kind we get bc of the hubby's job & my fam says I'm picky (they're right). We used to live there & it's our "happy" place, so we usually know whereabouts we want to stay & that's not an easy request last min but Cabins for You did just that! They provided an adorable, quaint 'lil cabin, on the river, in town, close to everything. Oh yea, & it had to be decorated for the holidays, jacuzzi, & pet friendly . Easy peezy, Not! But they did it. POOLIN' AROUND was the cabin, it's on the strip on the river within walking distance of most. We had a wonderful week, sitting out by the river while enjoying our coffee in the morning was enchanting. The only thing to make it better was snow. Oh well, that's 1 thing they cldn't do, but we forgave that. Lol We even had a swim spa for after those long days of shopping & play. They provide a starter kit of the basics, have souvenirs you can purchase right in the cabin, it was warm when we arrived, the spa was ready, pool towels provided, washer/dryer, wood & lighter fluid for the fire pit & a pool table for ent.. We had a black bear come nextdoor looking for goodies & I got a few pics, but my flash didn't flash (of course), I was so mad. POOLIN' AROUND, clean/tidy, comfy furniture, cute decor, great local & Awesome rental co. that will assist in your attraction/dinner tickets. What more cld you want? Either than snow! Lol. Cabins for You, They'll go above & beyond for you too."

  • "Finding a place that could accommodate our golden retriever was really tough. This place did and it was perfect! Location was great. Cabin was great. Swim spa was fantastic! The host responded quickly to our emails. You cannot go wrong with this rental."
