PLEASE NOTE: Weather, precipitation levels, TVA power needs and other factors cause fluctuations in lake levels throughout the year, particularly from September to early May. Jackson Mountain Rentals and VTrips are not responsible for lake conditions and levels nor their effects on stationary docks, floating docks, or recreational activities such as swimming, boating or fishing.

At the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is LakeSide Rest, a charming lakeside cabin within driving distance of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Dollywood Theme Park, Bristol Raceway, Christus Gardens, Ripley’s Aquarium of The Smokies, Smokies Baseball Stadium, and more.

LakeSide Rest is just what larger groups of friends and families made up of all ages are looking for…with sleeping accommodations for up to 10 people, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom vacation home has it all, from a fabulous game room to a private dock with hot tub and so much more! A boat landing is shared with the neighbor, providing the convenient ability to launch boats. Depending on the size of the boat, we highly recommend utilizing Swann's Marina for the optimal launching experience

LakeSide Rest adds luxury to log-cabin living with soaring ceilings, ceiling fans everywhere, and a stunning, stacked stone wood-burning fireplace. After a day's adventuring, curl up on the comfortable living room furniture to enjoy your favorite shows on the large, Smart flat-screen Direct HDTV, or update your social media account with amazing photos courtesy of our new high speed internet.

The charming dining area features a long, farmhouse-style wood table that’s just right for bonding over a family meal or board game. The designer kitchen has wood floors, granite countertops, a charming breakfast bar with extra seating, sleek, new stainless-steel appliances installed in Spring 2023, and everything you need to whip up anything from a simple snack to a lavish brunch.

Or if barbecuing is more your thing, the spacious, screened-in lakefront deck is the perfect place to do it, thanks to a gas grill and plenty of seating for relaxing and enjoying the view of the water. There's even a hot tub, perfect for soothing tired muscles after a day of hiking or skiing, while an outdoor HDTV and cushioned furniture turns this spot into an outdoor living room.

With room to sleep 10, LakeSide Rest's three beautiful bedrooms feature every comfort including sumptuous beds (there’s a king-size bed in the primary bedroom and queen-size beds in the second and third bedrooms), en suite baths and ceiling fans. All three full bathrooms are well stocked with fresh towels and all bed linens are provided (including for the sleeper sofa). The primary bedroom also features a large, jetted soaking tub!

A washer and dryer make refreshing your wardrobe fast and convenient. LakeSide Rest’s rec room is sure to be a hit with your entire group. With comfortable lounge furniture, a large HDTV that's perfect for movie nights, game table, and bookcase full of reading materials, no one needs to fear a rainy day.

Please note that the dock is situated on a hill. You can park one vehicle at the designated turnaround area, next to the neighbor's patio. However, please avoid blocking the boat launch turnaround and neighbor's driveway. Kindly refrain from using the patio as it is not ours.

Nearby, there is a revamped market called "Kenny's Market." They offer a variety of items, including breakfast and lunch options. We recommend trying their delicious burgers, and you can even buy a fishing rod there. Enjoy your time at the dock and make sure to check out Kenny's Market for your dining and shopping needs.

After a day of adventuring, you'll be glad to return to the comfort, peace, and convenience of LakeSide Rest. Book your stay today!

Outstanding!!!! Great food and drinks - Live music on a floating dock. Prices aren't bad...

Outstanding!!!! Great food and drinks - Live music on a floating dock. Prices aren't bad either. Try the Mile High Club Sandwich, you won't be disappointed. We love going there. If you are out on the lake and need something, they have a little store and fuel if you need it. Dog friendly too... they brought our dog a bowl of water. It's my favorite stop on the lake, highly recommend it.

Great food at great prices! Wonderful staff and ice cold beer every time (they also serve liquor) ! Best place to eat and quench your thirst on the lake. And for those who don't have a boat, you can get here by land too. No excuse not to come and experience it yourself!
