Mountain views, a 60 foot wide roaring creek for fishing and fun right out the back door, 2 acres of front yard, privacy, and a modern and spacious cabin - what more could you ask for?

River's Edge Cabin is a fully up-to-date and well-appointed log cabin that sits on 3 private acres, with approximately 250 feet of frontage on the regularly-stocked Cosby Creek (over 60 feet wide!) for trout fishing and other water fun! Cosby Creek originates in the National Park just a few miles away, and is considered a blue ribbon trout stream.

Sit on the large back deck and listen to the rushing creek for hours on end, or on the front porch and enjoy the hummingbirds while you watch the kids play ball in the huge front lawn area (2 gently sloping grass acres).

River's Edge Cabin is approximately 2,400 square feet, with a full basement gameroom of over 800 square feet, equipped with a slate pool table, ping pong table, air hockey, color TV, gas stove, and jigsaw puzzles.

The house is appointed with fully functional antiques and quality Thomasville Furnishings, as well as High Definition TV with and DVD player. The solid pine dining table accommodates up to eight (8)guests for family get-togethers. The kitchen has modern whirlpool appliances, eating bar, utensils, dishes, and even fine china for that special occasion!

Our large front porch is perfect for sipping a cup of coffee in the morning while you watch the hummingbirds, and the 2-acre front yard provides plenty of play area for soccer, volleyball, and horseshoes. Our kids just like to go to the top of the hill and run down as fast as they can!

Enjoy the 4-person jetted hot tub overlooking Cosby Creek.

The Creek is, at its normal level, from 1 to 2.5 feet deep - perfect for kids to play in, tube, etc.

River's Edge Cabin is about a 25 minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, including Dollywood and the many other attractions and shows. The cabin is only 3 miles from the Cosby Entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There are several good restaurants less than 5 minutes from the cabin, including the famous Carver's Apple House.

If you need to do some ironing or laundry, River's Edge has a fully-equipped large laundry room with washer, dryer, iron, and ironing board.

Many make reservations for River's Edge months in advance, so check with us soon on your desired date(s) of stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We basically just vegetated at the cabin the whole time we were there - sitting on the back deck and watching the fish jump. There were some horses on the other side of the creek that were pretty comical too.

Hard to imagine a prettier setting than this.

Totally loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Listening to the creek from the deck was the highlight of our stay. It was so peaceful and relaxing We also played pool, air hockey, ping pong, and brought our badminton set and croquet set. We brought a raft for the river and plenty of board games. Did not miss the TV at all. Our stay was perfect.

Family get a Way

  • 5 of 5

The property was quiet and peaceful, the cabin was clean and the beds and pillows were better than most places we have stayed. Our main priority was 'fishing', which I was assured the creek was a good trout stream. It definitely was a great stream for trout, but, there were none. A neighbor said stocking of trout at that location had been discontinued. My husband is sick he was looking forward to fishing. After a few days of seeing none, he quit throwing his hook in the water. That was a very expensive disappointment to him. Nancy R.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear that you all didn't catch fish. I was there just last week and we caught (and released) several, including one that was about 13 inches. Cosby Creek is one of our favorite fly fishing streams in the Smokies. We have fly fisher it for years and have caught and released lots of trout !

We will be back

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our family getaway. We wanted a place we could relax and it was perfect. We loved the sounds of the river and beds were comfy. We have no complaints. We hope to make this our return destination every year, we visit frequently and have decided this is our favorite cabin we have ever stayed in. Thank you for the warmth and love that went into your home.

It was good but be prepared...

  • 3 of 5

The location of the cabin in Cosby is nicely tucked away from the main roads and the cabin is absolutely beautiful! We loved the setup.

We had a small issue with the fireplaces but the owner was very responsive and the repairman was there timely and got the fireplaces up and running quickly.

But there were some things we did not expect. Here is the list of surprises:

All the neighbors were much closer than we expected.

The loft bed was extremely squeaky and not the most comfortable to sleep on.

The pots and pans were uneven and the stove cooked very slowly.

The knives were all dull and in the bottom most drawer (Certainly not the place to put all the knives in a "family" cabin)


Check-in is strictly after 4 pm - but best before dark to give you time to find it. - Plan accordingly after Daylight Savings Time.

Cleaning - you will pay $75.00 for cleaning and they ask for tips. But you will do most of the cleaning yourself after you clean, dry and put away all dishes, strip all the beds, collect all towels and take them to the laundry room, then take out all the trash.

In KY a housekeeper will clean the entire house for about $80.00

So, get up early, if you plan to cook breakfast at the cabin on the day of your departure - the check out is at 10 am - and with all the things to get cleaned up and pack your children may be way more stressful than what you'd like on your last day.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. River's Edge sits on 3 acres of land, and we feel that it offers a great deal of privacy. We will certainly look into the squeaky bed upstairs and the kitchen utensil issue. Checkout is at 10am because checkin is at 4pm - our housekeepers need the full 6 hours to prepare the cabin for our next guests. We hope that you will return again soon!
