Take a look at this wonderful LUXURY RIVER cabin. From the great room overlooking the river to the outdoor fireplace, this cabin screams RELAX & ENJOY! From your first step inside, you will notice the attention to detail that this owner puts in to this vacation home.

The foyer and great room provide much needed space for gathering and entertaining. Comfortable furniture to cozy around the wood burning fireplace and watch movies provides easy entertainment and loads of memory making opportunities for your family. The TV in the main living room provides Comcast TV programming for your enjoyment. The TV is a smart TV where you can log in to your own TV subscriptions for more options. The adjoining kitchen is fully equipped with everything that you will need to provide meals for your family. There is a wine fridge, ice maker & Keurig coffee maker for your convenience.

The outdoor space at The Getaway on Little River is exquisite! From the outdoor deck furniture, hot tub and concrete river side patio & fireplace, you can spend many hours sitting and listening to the water go by. Across the river from the cabin, you will find an exceptionally large & tall rock embankment. With so many different pieces of stone, it is a work of art in itself. This crystal clear river is great for fishing and/or swimming, tubing and relaxing. It ranges from ankle deep to really deep.

For our motorcycle lovers, The Getaway on Little River is located at the end of the Tail of the Dragon. It is on a well packed gravel road with easy flat access and parking.
Fishing and swimming from the shoreline. Please be aware that access to the river is down a trail that is not suitable for all.

    We’ve been coming to this cabin every year for 15 years. Location is perfect. Love all the recent improvements.
  • - 2/3/2024

    We absolutely LOVED this cabin! Not only was the cabin beautiful and a perfect fit for our family, the location was stunning and secluded. It felt like our own little paradise for the week! The cabin was equipped and we really appreciated being able to cook and wash laundry during our stay. We are definitely coming back again!
  • - 12/8/2023

    Great cabin and very clean. We stay with this company a couple times a year but this was the first time in this cabin. We will be back again!
  • - 11/14/2023

    Love, love, love this cabin. Perfect location to me. River views, serene setting, privacy, clean, comfortable and well equipped, everything you need for a relaxing getaway. I’ve been visiting the Smokies for 35 years and since my favorite cabin was sold, I’ve been looking for my next favorite spot and I think I found it here.
  • - 10/20/2023

    Have stayed twice this year and love every minute!
  • - 10/11/2023

    Quiet, beautiful location, close to it all. Comfortable, welcoming accommodations. Well maintained and clean.
  • - 9/23/2023

    We have stayed here many times over the years and always enjoy the experience. We will definitely return in the future! Recent updates to the furnishings are a nice improvement and housekeeping does an excellent job. Many thanks
  • - 9/17/2023

    Wonderful cabin just as the pictures show. Clean and had plenty of supplies. Kitchen was fully furnished. Big bedrooms with TVs. One TV in the upstairs bedroom did not work unless you subscribed to or had an account with a network. River is a little hard to get into from the bank but doable. We had a good time and will book again. The hosts were very helpful in booking and when we needed to contact them.
  • - 9/5/2023

    This cabin was in a great location to the wedding venue and it was so clean and just perfect for our situation. We loved the river view from the back and it had plenty of space in the cabin and outside for everyone especially our granddaughters to play and run around. Thank you for making the weekend so enjoyable with having everything we needed at the cabin. I also appreciate you allowing my husband and I to get in early since we were bringing all the food, drinks and stuff for our children and their families since we all were traveling from different places. God Bless, Linda
  • - 8/25/2023

    Such an awesome spot. The cabin was perfect for our family.
  • - 8/20/2023

    This was our 5th stay at this wonderful cabin. We had a great time and love the updates to floors and furniture!
  • - 8/4/2023

    My son and his family came from Michigan and we came from Florida. Th scenery was great and the cabin was beautiful. We made some great memories!
  • - 7/29/2023

    This is the best cabin we have stayed in. With the unbelievable view of the river and the amount of wildlife we witnessed my family agrees this was our best trip to the smokies yet, and we have been vacationing there for several years. The cabin was perfect top to bottom unbelievably clean and all the amenities you could ask for!!
  • - 6/26/2023

    Very nice cabin on the river.. Love sitting on the deck over the water every morning to watch the wildlife. The cabin was clean and love that each bedroom had its own bathroom. We’ll be back
  • - 6/3/2023

    We will be back! This is a great location away from the road/town with the peaceful river flowing right out back. It is a bit hard to get into. (I fell in the first day, we had a good laugh about it!) Easy access to the Smoky Mountains about 15 min away. Place was clean and plenty of supplies. We stayed with 4 adults and 2 kids. My in-laws used the downstairs bedroom and couch was comfortable to sleep on. All bedrooms have a private bath which was also nice. Overall we loved the place and are already looking talking about returning next year.
  • - 5/12/2023

    Loved the cabin especially all the wildlife on the river!
  • - 2/27/2023

    As always we enjoyed our stay. I think this is our 10th year renting the Getaway and we were happy to see all the upgrades and improvements. Can’t wait until next year!
  • - 1/2/2023

    Great location. Will definitely come back in the summer. Beautiful view!
  • - 12/30/2022

    Great time as always, this is our absolute favorite cabin!
  • - 12/26/2022

    Despite mother nature's winter bomb cyclone cold and ice, it was a fabulous location and not too far off the highway and up treacherous mountains. Perfectly located near groceries and the Townsend entrance to the national Park. Clean, quiet, cozy! Felt very safe and enjoyed amazing shooting stars and moonlit nights. Braved the hot tub at 22' outside. 3 king brs with their own bathrooms were perfect! Will come back to enjoy the spring/summer/fall to enjoy the outdoor areas. It was perfect for us! We loved that cabin like our own, and having it decorated for Christmas was spectacular!
  • - 12/15/2022

    We loved sitting on the porch and listening to the river. We will visit this cabin again.
  • - 11/27/2022

    I really hate to leave a good review for fear the cabin won’t be available the next time we book, but this place was perfect for us! Nearly every place we considered staying had at least one room with twin or bunk beds. Not this one! Three king sized beds and three full baths with a half bath downstairs couldn’t be a better setup for us. The place was spacious and super clean, and the views were awesome! We absolutely loved listening to the river outside our windows at night. We even spotted a large bobcat in the caves next to the driveway. The location of the cabin is close to Cades Cove which was nearly a daily trip for us. We will definitely be booking this cabin again in the future.

    This is the perfect spot, secluded yet close to main roads. The deck and patio provide perfect views of Little River and lots of nature. We really enjoyed our time at Getaway on Little River. The only thing that could make it better is mattress toppers on all the beds….it was like sleeping on a rock.
  • - 10/2/2022

    Beautiful cabin! Beautiful location! We trailered our motorcycles down then road all around TN & NC. So many fun roads and amazing scenery. Ending the day with a soak in the hot tub by the river was just perfect! We loved that each room had a king bed and it’s own bathroom. Kitchen had all we needed. The deck out back is fabulous! Our only suggestions would be mattress toppers ti make the beds more comfy, and affix the hot tub steps to the deck so they don’t slide as you step out.
  • - 8/29/2022

    This year makes our fifth stay at this cabin. Great location with fishing and swimming steps away from the house. We bring our kayaks and put in a few miles up river and float back to the house. Very convenient. Happy to find the deck upgraded and all the brush cleared from the river bank and beside the house. Makes setting on the back deck and watching the river even more enjoyable than it already was. All things we had talked about last year. We love this place and plan our yearly trip to the smokies around its availability.
  • - 8/14/2022

    We’ve stayed at this cabin for several years and as always it was fantastic! Look forward to coming back
  • - 8/8/2022

    This place was an amazing experience. We had plenty of space and were able to easily create terrific new memories with the family, with all its resources. The place was very clean too.
  • - 7/18/2022

    We loved this house! It was very secluded and had everything we needed. We loved being able to play in the river and the hot tub was amazing! This house is even bigger and nicer than it is in the photos. We will return
  • - 6/16/2022

    The Getaway was a perfect fit for our family. The view of rock cliffs along the river was spectacular. Loved getting in the hot tub early in the morning then drinking my coffee in the glider on the porch. We had many adventures and finished the evening with an outside fire.
  • - 5/30/2022

    We've been coming to the Smokies for years and this is one of the nicest cabins we've stayed in.
  • - 5/23/2022

    We had a very nice and relaxing vacation
  • - 1/10/2022

    We had a wonderful stay. Can’t wait to come back!
  • - 12/5/2021

    Always a wonderful stay! The sound of the running river is so relaxing!
  • - 11/23/2021

    We had a great time at The Getaway on Little River. We had everything we needed and the back deck was the fabulous. So restful and peaceful. Can’t wait to visit again. Totally awesome place.
  • - 11/7/2021

    The beds upstairs were uncomfortable, a mattress topper may be a good idea. Other than that we had a fantastic stay. We have been coming to the mountains for years and years. This is the only cabin that we are planning on revisiting! VERY easy to get to. No crazy mountain road. It’s on a dead end road, so pretty secluded. There is one neighbor, but we didn’t even see them outside. The view of the little river was great along with the nice Mountain View outback. The noise of the river was very relaxing while sitting on the deck. It was a clean cabin and the owners are very responsive to messages if you need anything. We had a fantastic trip with two other couples !
    Management Response: We will look in to the upstairs mattresses. Mattress satisfaction is so subjective that it's hard to make everyone totally comfortable but if they need attention, we will take care of it. Thank you!!
  • - 10/12/2021

    Great experience. Cabin was clean and a beautiful place to spend a getaway weekend.
  • - 10/9/2021

    I loved the cabin it was great... The hot tub was the best.
  • - 8/15/2021

    This is a beautiful cabin. We had a great time. Look forward to staying again next year!
  • - 7/17/2021

    This place is amazing! We have a family of six and this felt more like home than anywhere we have ever stayed before. The views. The space. Everything! It’s like there was something for all of us. Close enough to go places such as the Tuckaleechee Caverns and not too far from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. (A little more than 40 minutes but we enjoyed being away from the hustle bustle of it all). We will be staying here again in the near future.
  • - 6/23/2021

    Beautiful cabin in a beautiful setting!! We had a great stay and will definitely be back again.
  • - 6/14/2021

    The Cabin was fully equipped with all basic needs. We had a wonderful time setting on the porch watching and listening to the water flowing. My Son caught small mouth bass close to the clifts.
  • - 4/22/2021

    We have visited this cabin 9 years in a row. We absolutely love the location and cleanliness.
  • - 4/9/2021

    Beautiful and peaceful location. Well equipped cabin.
  • - 3/26/2021

    We really enjoyed the cabin. Plenty of space for our family with teenagers to spread out. Close to Townsend and the Park, and also close enough to Maryville to drive in and pick up dinner. There were minor issues with houskeeping upon arrival, but staff did respond promptly upon notification to clean some of the floors.
  • - 3/18/2021

    The house was great! The view was spectacular! It was very relaxing there. We loved sitting on the porch and listening to the wildlife and river.
  • - 3/1/2021

    This place was amazing...all bedrooms had a bath, plus a half bath, super clean, well thought out, the outside area was just fabulous, we spent a lot of time on the covered deck watching the geese and the sound of the river was so relaxing, the outside fireplace was so very nice, nice hot tub. This was a sisters getaway weekend with our spouses, and we had a great time.....Will definitely be back...
  • - 2/22/2021

    This cabin is wonderful! The pictures online do not do it justice. It was super clean and roomy. There are 3 good size bedrooms each with it's own nice bathroom. The kitchen was large, clean, and had everything we needed. The outdoor space was incredible- unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy it this time. We will definitely be back in warmer weather. The rental company was easy to work with. We received our door code in advance and had no trouble with it. They also emailed detailed directions to the cabin which was nice.
  • - 2/3/2021

    The cabin was wonderful. Clean and very spacious.
  • - 12/10/2020

    The cabin was great! The deck on back was our favorite place to gather and listen to the river run. We enjoyed watching a variety of wildlife on the water, geese, ducks and even an eagle visited daily! The Christmas decorations added a special feel and made the entire experience feel like home.
  • - 11/30/2020

    Cabin was perfect. My husband and son went fly fishing and explored the cave. My whole immediate family rented from Smoky Cabins (3 cabins in total) and we were all within 15 minutes of each other. We had Thanksgiving at this cabin and with all the space we practiced social distancing successfully. My son and in-laws stayed upstairs me and my husband were on the bottom floor and none of us could hear each other when we were moving around. This is the perfect place to stay it really was.
  • - 11/9/2020

    We had a great family weekend on this riverside gem. We loved that it was close to parks and trails and had all of the conveniences to make our stay easy!
  • - 10/28/2020

    We loved our stay at "The Getaway"! Very clean, quiet and a beautiful setting on the river. We had a small issue with sinks in two bathrooms but was addressed right away when we reported it. Neither the ice maker in the fridge or the separate one was working but that was just a small inconvenience. Gorgeous property and very comfortable.
  • - 10/19/2020

    This cabin is so nice. We love it and have been staying there for 8 years. My last stay was October 16th & 17th. I was so surprised the cabin was so much cleaner than we have seen it over the years. The last time we stayed the floors were so sticky your feet would stick to the floor. Someone came out immediately and cleaned the floors. It was so nice to come into a clean house. We have already booked the cabin for Christmas. Looking forward to staying again.
  • - 9/30/2020

    We just love to stay here as the cabin is so clean and absolutely no bugs (inside) this trip. Not what you expect but it is what we got. Absolutely peaceful and the best location. See you next year if not sooner.
  • - 9/21/2020

    Beautiful cabin, very clean, loved the location and the river, etc. Extremely comfortable.
  • - 8/21/2020

    Great location with all the natural beauty of the river visible right from the porch. Cabin was charming had everything we needed. Thanks!
  • - 8/14/2020

    Love this cabin! Big, private and good location. We be back!!
  • - 8/3/2020

    What a wonderful house! We are hoping to return one day. Beautiful location. Accommodations are great.
  • - 7/17/2020

  • - 7/6/2020

  • - 6/22/2020

    Cabin was clean and exceeded our expectations. We are planning to book now for next year!! You can set your watch to the beaver that swims by every morning!!
  • - 5/3/2020

    Everything was great! We had a wonderful stay!
  • - 1/3/2020

    Loved the Cabin, the location, the river in the back. It was so peaceful and serene. Definitely spent a lot of time breathing in some fresh air on the porch throughout various times of the day. The house is very spacious. All 3 rooms have King beds, each room has its own full bathroom with a half bathroom downstairs. Perfect layout and very comfortable! Jacuzzi was clean and ready for guests! Definitely want to return in the Summer!
  • - 11/6/2019

    We love this cabin. I am not sure how many years we have been coming as we have lost count. It is so comfortable and such a beautiful setting. We will be back next year.
  • - 10/30/2019

    The cabin was beautiful. It was so quiet and peaceful. Beautiful view of the river from the deck. We loved our experience there. We would love to stay there again.
  • - 6/23/2019

    Great location for family fun and relaxation! View of the bluff across the river is amazing. Plenty of space for 3 couples. Hot tub was nice.
  • - 5/23/2019

    For a quiet, secluded place to relax and enjoy the sounds of the Little River and nature, this gorgeous, cozy cabin is my favorite place!! Hot tub, outdoor grill and plenty of room!!
  • - 5/19/2019

    5 years straight we have stayed in a different one of your cabins. This was by far my favorite. Secluded and quiet except for the sound of the flowing river. Had a great stay!
  • - 12/30/2018

    Had a great time again! This was our family's visit, and we hope to return in the summer. It's a perfect cabin!
  • - 10/25/2018

    My family loved the cabin and location and my daughter got engaged down by the water it's was a awesome vacation and hope to return next year .PERFECT
  • - 7/10/2018

    This is a great place to enjoy nature and especially the river with family or friends. It’s very private and it’s convenient to everything in the Smoky Mountains!
  • - 7/5/2018

    We loved the cabin and had a wonderful time with our family!!
  • - 5/29/2018

    This is our 6th year returning to The Getaway on Little River. We always enjoy our time here and will hope to return again next year.
  • - 5/14/2018

    A beautiful place. Our multigenerational family enjoyed every minute.
  • - 4/11/2018

    Great Cabin on Little River! Easy to get to but still a quiet spot with few other cabins near by. Great River access. Unfortunately weather did not allow for great fishing but I imagine it’s a great spot for smallmouth and trout at the right time of year. Hope to get back soon with better weather and some fishing in the Smokies.
  • - 4/2/2018

    Cabin was prefect, very clean and the grounds were lovely. The hot tub was so relaxing! We hope to return very soon!
