Barefoot by the River is a little slice of Heaven This is our second stay with Colonial Properties at Barefoot by the River and it has been exceptional both times! Check-in and out was effortless and the cabin was spotless. We love how close it is to so many attractions, but we also love just relaxing on the deck and watching the river flow by. So relaxing! We will definitely be back!

Our Smokey Mountain stay at Barefoot By The River Great stay at Barefoot! It was very well maintained, very clean with all the things we needed. Going thru and Coming out of COVID we have been extremely cautious everywhere we’ve stayed but this place was top notch; The call ahead from the leasing agency with instructions and checking on us we’re a welcome surprise. The grounds were well maintained! Loved the porch and sound of the water in the back. Definitely would recommend and stay again! Thank you!

River memories My wife & myself had the most enjoyable vacation & this cabin was everything we were looking for , seclusion & roomy land , rushing river was the only noise ! Over 15 years of cabin vacationing in the Smoky mountain area this was our favorite ! 15-20 minutes from either city but nice country setting! Minutes from the Ramsey Cascades hike . Awesome cabin for 2 -4 people .

Barefoot By The River We loved the cabin, we’ll definitely try to get back in the future. The cabin is awesome, with lots of river frontage. The valley it’s located in is very scenic, with lots of elbow room between you and your nearest neighbor. We had a great time!
