While many vacationers come to the Smokies to see beautiful mountain views or historic sites, some of us come to witness beautiful waterways and waterfalls.
Luckily, Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains are filled with many beautiful creeks, rivers, and streams. These scenic areas are well-worth exploring during your trip, but there's a way to spend even more time by the water. For next vacation, why not book a Gatlinburg cabin by a river?
Why Book A Waterfront Cabin?
1. Calming Sounds – The sounds of pure mountain water rushing over rocks is simply good for the soul. Whether you're relaxing in a porch rocker or sitting back in a hot tub, the soothing tones of falling water are bound to help you unwind.
2. Wildlife Viewing – Birds and other local wildlife are commonly drawn to streams and rivers for a source of water and food. As a result, booking a cabin in one of these areas can give you a front-row seat for viewing birds and animals in the Smoky Mountains.
3. Fishing – The Great Smoky Mountains area is a famous destination for fly fishing. While fishermen can always venture into the national park, why not save time by booking a cabin by the water's edge?
4. Scenic Views – No matter the season, our cabins on rivers and streams offer beautiful scenery that can make your vacation even more unforgettable.
