Built right on the banks of Little Pigeon River, Rivers Edge, a Handicap Accessible cabin, is where you want to be in the Great Smoky Mountains. The river is stocked with trout so fishing is wonderful. Imagine the serenity of sitting on the large deck listening to the sound of the river and the songbirds in the woods all around. This is a vacation as it was meant to be.
Even those with physical challenges will be able to navigate Rivers Edge, as it is Handicap Accessible. There’s a ramp making it easy to enter the home. Doorways are wide and there are two primary suites on the main floor with easy-to-access bathrooms, featuring roll-in showers and roll-under sinks.
Rivers Edge is a three-bathroom, three-bedroom, air-conditioned home that can accommodate up to eight friends or family when the sofa sleeper is used as a bed for two. When you walk into the great room, the wall of picture windows looking out on the woods and river will wow you. Glorious natural light flows in through these windows showcasing the glowing hand-rubbed pine walls of Rivers Edge. You’ll find plenty of comfortable furniture in this room, all perfectly arranged to give a great view of the stone, wood-burning fireplace and the large satellite TV next to it. You also have access to HBO and other movie channels along with a DVD and free Wi-Fi.
Through French doors, you’ll reach your deck where you’ll find a table and chairs along with a bubbly hot tub and a charcoal grill. You’ll no doubt spend many an hour enjoying the river and nature from this deck. After a day of horseback riding, golf, or hiking in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, this hot tub will be just what the doctor ordered.
If you’re dining at Rivers Edge, you may want to bring your meal out to the deck. Everything seems to taste its best in the mountain air.
You have a fully outfitted kitchen waiting for you at Rivers Edge. There’s plenty of prep space on the island and you’ll find all the pots, pans, appliances, gadgets, and utensils you need to prepare your favorite recipes. If you’re not dining out on the deck, you can seat guests around your dining room table for six. If additional seats are needed, you can set four more places up at the breakfast bar.
Within Rivers Edge you have your own laundry room with a washer and dryer. Having access to these appliances makes keeping everyone in clean clothes so much easier. It sure beats running to a Laundromat!
No matter what the season, you’ll find plenty to do in and around Rivers Edge. Dollywood is a short drive away. You can also ride the zip lines and gondola in Gatlinburg. Hiking paths in Great Smoky Mountain National Park take you beside waterfalls and breathtaking vistas. Be sure to bring your camera! If you are planning to visit in winter, it’s wise to come in a four-wheel-drive vehicle, or at least have chains for your car. Winter roads can be icy and snow-packed in the colder months.
Whatever you do during the day, when night falls, you’ll be more than ready to slip off to your bedroom for a good night’s sleep.
The two primary bedrooms on the main floor have king-sized beds and French-door access to the deck in case you want to slip out to enjoy the river sounds at night. Each of these rooms features a dresser, nightstands with reading lamps, and a personal TV. Both main-floor bedrooms also have Jacuzzi tubs along with a private bathroom for each.
Upstairs at Rivers Edge is the third bedroom suite. This lovely secluded space has a wall of windows on the forest, a queen-sized bed, dresser with a TV on top, and a private bathroom with a walk-in shower.
Bring your friends or family to Rivers Edge once and you’ll want to return year after year. It is that special. Make today the day you reserve your preferred dates at the cabin and start planning how you’ll make memories in this lovely home.Get the full listing »
