Budding with wooded views and cabin charm, Red Bud Cottage is a single-floor home in the Great Smoky Mountains — just 1 minute from downtown Gatlinburg! With room for 6, this Gatlinburg cabin — boasting 2 bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a hot tub, and an entertaining space in the living room — is a great choice for a couples’ retreat or getaway with friends. As a bonus, this abode lies in the heart of Gatlinburg, keeping all the fun-filled attractions, Southern-style restaurants, exciting seasonal events, and intriguingly unique museums close by for your convenience.

Living Room
Leave your bags in the car and step right into the living room just off the entryway. Hop on the couch and flip on the big screen TV or just take a load off on the love seat — you deserve a relaxing break after your travels. Pop a movie (bring your own or choose one from the provided collection) in the DVD player for a movie night in with your buds or bust out the Family 10 Game Set from the TV stand to duke it out with the kids.

When you’re tuckered out from your Gatlinburg adventures, pull out the queen sleeper sofa and let your favorite TV show lull you to sleep. Wake up to charming wooded views or keep the curtains closed to sleep in until noon. With close proximity to the kitchen and a coffee table nearby, not only are midnight snacks an option, but you’ll also be able to grab the first morning cup of joe!

For tasty meals, decadent snacks, and tempting treats, head to the fully equipped galley kitchen. Save a little spending money by utilizing the stove for dinner, the microwave for leftovers, the refrigerator for drinks, the blender for smoothies, the toaster oven for breakfast bagels, and the coffeemaker for your morning jolt. With pots and pans at the ready, you’ll be cooking up a storm in no time! Plus, there’s an electric can opener for soup, a bottle opener for beer, a tea kettle for your special herbal blend, a stainless-steel double sink for washing veggies, and a dishwasher to take care of the mess.

Dining Area
Serve up your homecooked meals in the dining area — conveniently located between the kitchen and the living room. Check out the wooded views from the large window or watch TV while you dine. Better yet, go around the table and have everyone share their favorite part of the day in town.

Accompanied by 4 matching stools, the wood-top dining table is not only useful for mealtimes but also handy for game night. A reading nook can be found nearby, so if you’re a light sleeper or simply want alone time, grab the latest romance novel and curl up in the arm chair for an evening lost in the pages. There’s even an end table with coasters — ready to keep your cocoa company!

Make your way to the primary suite for a midday cat nap or a comfortable night’s sleep on the king-size bed. If your dream vacation has you too excited to shut your eyes, the flatscreen TV on the dresser is a good option to keep your mind occupied. Who knows? You might even see an ad for a new Gatlinburg attraction to check out! Before you head into the city, enjoy a nice, hot shower in your en-suite bathroom, which sports a large vanity and even a posh bidet.

A queen-size bed awaits in the second bedroom — along with a flatscreen TV, a large wingback chair, and wooded views. Recharge with a rest on the bed while your phone does the same on the nightstand or chuckle to a comedy classic while relaxing in the spacious chair. With a half bath just outside the bedroom door, practicality is certainly present at this cabin.

Outdoor Spaces
Upon your arrival, you’ll notice a large front yard and flat, gravel parking for 4-5 vehicles (with room for a trailer). Leading up to the front door is a paved walkway bordered by solar lights to show you the way after a night on the town. Beckoning for a mountain-style barbecue, a picnic-style, charcoal grill and 6 wooden patio chairs surrounding a covered metal fire pit await in the sizeable yard. Leave the front door open and the screen door shut to let fresh woodland air into the home, and when dinner is done, gently ring the hanging bells by the front door to signal the feast!

Game Room

The exciting new rec room at Red Bud Cottage is fun, cool, and full of mountain charm! Wood walls and floors pair perfectly with the painted mountain mural, and you can spend hours shooting pool or playing arcade games with kids and adults here! 

Other Amenities
Leave your heavy suitcases at home, because this cabin comes with a washer and dryer, so you can wash clothes and towels as needed instead of overloading the car. Google the best barbecue side dishes or just browse social media like normal with the complimentary high-speed internet.

Most noteworthy of all, this vacation rental is pet-friendly, so bring your fur baby along for your Smoky Mountain trip! Play catch in the front yard, go for a hike together on a local trail, and bring back new treats for your pup to try from town.

Local Fun

Nestled in the heart of Gatlinburg, Red Bud Cottage is close to many top-notch local attractions, impressive restaurants, and nature activities. It may be hard to leave your cozy Gatlinburg cabin, but for the full Smoky Mountain vacation experience, it will be worth it!

Ober Gatlinburg
Enjoy a day filled with smiles at Ober Gatlinburg with a wildlife encounter, snow tubing, delightful shops, and delectable eateries!

Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies
Sea life in the middle of the mountains? Yep, check out Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies for sharks, rays, clownfish, penguins, and more!

Reviews for Red Bud Cottage

  • "We have stayed at this cabin twice - once in the fall and this past spring. I love the location as we did walk to downtown. The cabin has a king size bed and another smaller bed in the additional bedroom. This is perfect for a couple. It would be more difficult with a family or two couples as there is only a shower which is off the master bedroom. Love the game room and the t.v. has actual cable channels and not just the apps. I am not a fan of signing into the apps and was glad to have the access to local news, tourist channels and the arrange of movies for when your feet may feel the burn from hiking in the park or walking up and down the parkway several times. There is a bear that comes by in the mornings, so be careful not to leave your car unlocked. The cabin was clean and had plenty of towels and kitchen dishes/ cookware."

  • "This was our first stay with Cabins For You and it was phenomenal! We stayed in the Red Bud Cottage and it was perfect for our Christmas get away as a family of 5. The cottage was beautiful! The location was about 1 mile from downtown Gatlinburg which as perfect. My teenagers loved the game room and we all played many games of pool, air hockey and ping pong. We were very pleased with Cabins For You and with our stay. There are absolutely no complaints from us at all! We will definitely be using Cabins For You again!!!!"

  • "We stayed at Red Bud Cottage, very pleased. It was decorated for Christmas. Beautiful. Full kitchen, game room, comfortable mattresses. Our 1st cabin in the mountains, so pleased we chose this one!"

  • "We spent Christmas week in the Red Bud Cottage located in Gatlinburg, Tn. It was perfect for our family, plenty of space, clean, beautifully decorated, a perfect location and pet friendly. This was one of the best stays we have had in a long time, certainly the best Christmas. We will definitely use Cabins For You again. "

  • "We really enjoyed this cabin. Good location and quiet. We were close enough to the main strip but still felt like we were far away from it. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The games were fun to have too!"

  • "If this cabin is any indication of the rest of their properties, i would not hesitate to rent from them again. The cabin was spotless when we arrived and check in was super easy. There were not alot of dishes that we could not have prepared in the kitchen with all of the cooking utensils, pots, pans etc. This is a first class operation and i thank them for the professionalism and care that went in to this property."

  • "My family and I truly enjoyed our stay in Redbud Cottage! It was situated in a neighborhood that was quiet and secluded and we were within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg. The Cottage was roomy and had a game room which was really nice. The price was awesome compared to what else was offered for what we needed. We would definitely recommend Cabins for You to our friends and family!"

  • "Cabins were very clean, was in a good location within walking distance to a lot of the attractions and was very reasonably priced for the amount of days I stayed. I would definitely stay here again and recommend Cabins for You to all my family and friends."

  • "The cabin we rented was clean and comfortable. A ton of space and a lot of activities during down time, very close to down town... I would recommend to anyone."

  • "Three words for Red Bud Cottage…clean, comfortable, and convenient. So close to all Gatlinburg attractions, and restaurants, yet tucked far back enough away for tons of privacy. Also convenient to Pigeon Forge, and many trails if you like to do hiking. Had a great 5 night get-a-way! This was the 2nd time staying with Cabins for you. Professional and helpful. They also maintain their properties well!"

  • "Super nice spot close to it all. We had everything we needed and then some. The beds comfy, game room is awesome and the hot tub was relaxing! Our elderly fur babies appreciated the easy access."

  • "Did not Disappoint! Went for my birthday and the cottage was clean and location was perfect! I will be using Cabins For YOU from now on!!"

  • "Great cabin for the price, right down the path from downtown Gatlinburg. Was a perfect location and absolute blast."

  • "The location is amazingly right in between pigeon forge and Gatlinburg. the best place to eat breakfast literally right around the corner. Having a nice secluded place for a weekend was what I wanted and this was definitely it"

  • "Great place in an awesome location. Would definitely stay here again!"

  • "Cute place to stay with pups."

  • "Very close to the Parkway while still having a peaceful stay. The kids enjoyed the game room and the dog enjoyed the fallen leaves in the yard. Cabins for You was easy to communicate with and very accommodating. We would stay again."

  • "Super close to everything but still far enough to have some peace and quiet. We were able to walk to gatlinburg and walk around for a few hours before returning home, but despite that the cabin was still very quiet. The company that owns this Airbnb has quite a few cabins in the area and they also have branded/custom products, so you know you’re dealing with professionals, which helps you feel more comfortable. We really enjoyed the game room and hot tub. The house was very clean and provided enough for us to cook and do laundry. The pricing was reasonable and overall we were very satisfied with our visit. We ended up spending more time at the Airbnb than expected as it was very cozy. Would recommend to anyone looking to visit the gatlinburg area. We loved this cabin."

  • "This was our second stay at this property and it’s perfect! A very convenient and enjoyable, pet friendly location. Will definitely stay here again and again."

  • "I have stayed with Cabins for You for 3 years straight and they are by far my favorite company to work with in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area! Always quick to respond and easy to book with! I will only use this company in the future!!"

  • "My family and I had a great time. The cottage was clean well stocked with cooking kitchen gadgets. Nice large front yard for my Boston Terrier to play in. The kids loved the hot tub. Close to every thing."

  • "The overall stay was good."

  • "We loved every single minute of our stay in the Red Bud Cottage. From making the reservation to checking in and checking out, the process was quick and easy. When we arrived, the cottage was spotless. They really thought of everything when they prepared for our stay. We had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was perfect and we enjoyed spending family time in the game room. We have already decided that our next stay will be with Cabins for You!"

  • "really relaxing"

  • "Great Location! Very clean. I usually bring shampoo etc but happened to forget and they didn't have any there. They did have a welcome bag with some necessities which was nice. Kids loved the place. Hot tub was great and easy to use! You could be downtown Gatlinburg 5 minutes easy. Quick response host too. I would recommend this place."

  • "Easy to book and pleasant stay. Have been using them for years."

  • "House was as described. Didn't use hot tub but game room was great except for plastic darts."

  • "Great location and felt cozy. I like that you can get here before you hit the heavy traffic of Gatlinburg. Plenty of parking space and a nice level yard with a fire pit and hot tub. Would love to come here again."

  • "This was the best place to rent highly recommended to every body couldn't ask for a better place definitely would rent here again"

  • "The place was clean and functional. Great location"

  • "This Cabin was perfect! Had the game room that kept us entertained constantly the hot tub to help us relax after a long day of hiking and the fire pit to sit and talk around. I loved it and would stay here any day. Plus the bidet was a new experience for me but I thought it was cool and neat feature."
