Final Thoughts on Rentals Near Streams, Rivers, and Ponds
While its always nice to stay at a cabin by a river or stream, these rentals are quite popular and availability can be limited. If you're unable to book your dream cabin by the river, take consolation that the nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park has many beautiful waterways to explore.
A recent survey estimates that there are nearly 3,000 miles of streams in the Smokies. Many of these streams are excellent for fishing, swimming, or just rock hopping. So even if you can't book a cabin right on the water, you're never too far away from a beautiful mountain river or creek when you book a cabin in Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains!
