Fishing Fanatics: Cabins Near the Best Fishing Spots in Gatlinburg

Published Feb 22, 2024


Grab your fishing poles and get ready for pure relaxation. These five cabins are all near fishing ponds or on riverbanks, so you can spend hours enjoying nature while you wait for a tug on the line. 

1. Back to Nature

Fishing doesn’t get any easier than this! Step out the back door of this charming two-bedroom cabin, then walk just a few yards to your stocked fishing pond. The cozy cabin pampers you with king and queen bedrooms, a luxurious soaking tub, and beautiful exposed-beam ceilings. The two-bedroom cabin accommodates up to four guests but makes an ideal couple’s getaway, too.

2. Trout’n About

Bring your favorite fishing cousins or a gang of friends to this riverside cabin for up to 18 guests. The interior evokes a luxury lodge, with plush leather sofas, a spectacular stone fireplace, and five spacious bedrooms. Games galore keep everyone busy on rainy days. When the sun’s out, enjoy private access to the riverbank, plus a big fire pit. Sit around the fire and tell fishin’ tales about “the one that got away”! 

3. A River Runs Through It

Nature-inspired interiors make this two-bedroom cabin a reflection of the beauty outside. You’ll love the riverbank location. The screened, roofed deck keeps bugs away in summer and makes a comfortable hangout in the mild Smokies winter. This cabin for four is also close to Dollywood, a golf course and more attractions, for when you want a break from angling. 

4. Moose-N-Around

The epic views from this cabin’s covered deck define “breathtaking”! Drink morning coffee or evening moonshine while you sit in the porch swing and gaze at the mountains. The two-bedroom cabin for up to five guests offers rustic beauty outside and modern, upscale amenities inside. A game room with air hockey, pool and foosball will keep you busy when you’re not at the fishing pond.

5. River Reflections

The Little Pigeon River flows past this rustic cabin, hand-built from logs cut in the 19th century. Watch for wildlife including deer, turkeys and bears as you fish on the riverbank. Later, cuddle up with your sweetheart in front of the fireplace in this one-bedroom cabin for two. Listen to the crackling of the cheery fire and the bubbling of the river outside.
