After a busy day of sightseeing, you'll love returning to the warmth and comfort of 'River Escape' and relaxing on the back porch or soaking in the large tub overlooking Little River. MPORTANT: Out of respect for the holidays and our employees, we do NOT allow ANY check in or outs on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day Check-In: *3pm - there is NO check-in office, you go straight to the cabin Check-Out: *10am - Please follow our check out guidelines. Fireplaces: *On During: October 1st - April 1st Common Concerns: *Road Conditions: Some of our cabins are on steep, narrow, curvy, mountain roads. If you are concerned about road conditions to get to a cabin, please feel free to ask us! None of our cabins require a 4 wheel drive under normal weather conditions but some do in inclement weather. *TV & WiFi: We do have TV's and WiFi in most all of our cabins. There are times when heavy cloud cover, weather systems, mountains, or trees will cause problems with the signals. We always want our guests to have the comforts they want on vacation, but there are times we cannot control this problem. *Pests & Wildlife: Here in the Smoky Mountains, we have lots of native bugs and wildlife. All of our cabins are treated for pests, but there are times you will find bugs or even have trouble with bugs. Please let us know if they are causing trouble, we will handle it as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please never feed, taunt or approach any wildlife. This is their home and we are the visitors.

Thank you so much for staying with us! We appreciate your business and that you took time to put down your thoughts. The cabin is so relaxing with the river right next to it. The sound of the water going by is so peaceful!!

River Escape was just the right size for a couple. It had a remote feeling but was close to everything we needed. The lack of dressers stumped us initially but my husband used the wardrobe in the master and I used the one in the...More

We thoroughly enjoyed this newer cabin. Nice furnishings, extra comfortable king bed with TV in master bedroom. Nice big porch to look out on the river. We paddled right to the cabin! Loved our stay and added additional days to our stay.
