If your ideal vacation includes fishing for trout just steps away from where you’re staying, you’ll want to book your stay at Amazing River Retreat right now! Even if fishing isn’t key to your getaway, however, you’ll find plenty to love about this three-bedroom, dog-friendly (dogs only - up to 25 lbs.) lodge.

Located in a forested mountain valley, Amazing River Retreat is right on the bank of the trout-stocked Little Pigeon River. From the lodge’s two spacious wraparound decks you’ll hear the soothing burble of the waters rushing over the rocks. Along with the rustling of the breeze through the trees, the singing of warblers and thrushes during the day, and the chirping of crickets at night, it serves as ideal background music. Whether you’re enjoying breakfast at the main deck’s patio table, cooking dinner on the charcoal grill, or perhaps best of all, lazing in the lower deck’s hot tub, you can savor the soothing soundtrack.

You can revel in the views from inside the lodge as well, courtesy of the great room’s double-height wall of windows. The sunlight streaming in shows off the hand-rubbed light pine floors, walls and vaulted ceiling to perfection.

There’s space for everyone to gather on the great room’s well-cushioned leather seating, whether it’s to watch the big game on TV or play charades in the glow of the stone-surround fireplace. The great room also hosts the dining area, which includes a gorgeous wood-and-wrought-iron table that seats six. Another four people can sit at the adjacent breakfast bar. If you’re vacationing with another family, set up the kids at the breakfast bar. They’ll love eating “on their own” while the adults linger over their meal at the table.

Speaking of meals, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a cordon bleu feast or simply to reheat leftovers from the previous night’s restaurant meal. From a refrigerator with ice maker to a dishwasher, we’ve got you covered!

Downstairs you’ll find the game room, the perfect hangout for kids and adults alike. You can choose between shooting pool at the full-size billiard table or play foosball. Or you can stretch out on one of the so comfortable couches and watch a movie on TV—Amazing River Retreat receives plenty of satellite channels, including Showtime. The washer and dryer are conveniently located just off the game room, so you can do laundry while you lounge.

Just as the game room takes up nearly all of the downstairs, the primary suite makes up the entire loft level. The bedroom is huge, with a king-size bed, a desk, a sitting area, a flat-screen TV and a wealth of storage. Add to that the vaulted ceiling, the en-suite bathroom, and the magnificent view, and you have a haven you might never want to leave.

The other two bedrooms on the main floor are just as comfortable.. One bedroom has a queen bed and other bedroom has a King Bed, a TV, a ceiling fan and plenty of storage. If you need additional sleeping quarters, the sofa in the game room opens into beds for two, enabling Amazing River Retreat to accommodate eight people in all.

When you’re not fishing for trout in the river that’s right outside your door, there’s plenty more to do in the area. Amazing River Retreat is no more than a half-hour drive from the attractions of both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. You can explore the wildlife, wildflowers and waterfalls of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park one day, the rides and attractions of Dollywood the next, and the galleries, shops and studios of the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop the day after that.

No matter how you spend your days, you’ll love returning to the tranquility of Amazing River Retreat. It’s really a fabulous place for relaxing body and soul. So, what are you waiting for? Book your stay today—we look forward to seeing you!

Loved the location, the view and the cabin but definitely not for someone handicapped or with mobility problems. Only way to reach main floor is up a flight of stairs.

This home was in a great location! Quiet , beautiful water view, yet close to tourist areas. The home had adequate space for our family and was clean upon arrival. The 2 issues we had were 1. Upon our arrival, we noticed one bed was not made and we had to call for sheets . The bedding was supposed to be delivered that evening but didn\'t arrive until lunchtime the next day. 2. The hot tub only had about 6 inches of water and maintenance had to come out to make repairs and fill up hot tub. These were minor inconveniences. The main living areas of the home were laid out well and kitchen had ample space for cooking. Refrigerator was clean and large. Water pressure was good. All outdoor lighting was very helpful when taking our dog out at night. The bedrooms were all well equipped with lots of storage. Bathrooms were clean, functional. Game area with pool table and Foosball provided entertainment and more space to enjoy time together. Home has a garage and a gravel driveway/parking spots. There was also a large sized pet crate for use, but we had brought our own. Overall, online photos matched the actual house and we enjoyed our time at Amazing River Retreat

Great place to get away from it all if you are looking for peace. Still close enough to drive to attractions of the area. Outside of the home facing the stream is starting to show some wear. Really enjoyed the sound of the stream and the large windows. Overall had a great time, one of the best places I have ever stayed at.
