About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

If you're looking for the ideal vacation cabin for your family, THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST IN THE SMOKIES!

To see lots of photos of Rivers Edge, please see link below to the Rivers Edge website!

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.

Perfect mountain vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We drove in from Texas to enjoy a quiet family vacation with our 3 teenage daughters. We wanted to stay away from the commercialized Gatlinburg, but be close enough to if desired.

The cabin was perfect! It's exactly as described and pictured. The cabins on our side of the river were far apart. There are a couple across the river, but you still feel like you have privacy. Plus the mountain view from the spacious front yard was nice, but breathtaking as you drove out the driveway.

The girls, as well as us, enjoyed just chilling in a tube on the river. You don't go far, but just the sound of the creek and the floating propped up on a rock sipping a cold one was nice. Coffee on the deck was heavenly. There is ample space and good cell service. Just ask for wifi password :).

The basement was a family favorite. After a day of hiking, rafting or whatever activity we chose, having a fun hangout was nice. Pool, ping pong and air hockey!

Thank you for sharing your cabin. It was a memorable vacation for sure!!

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 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.
