The well-appointed Edgewater at the Aquarium Hotel & Conference Center is a premier lodging establishment perched on the banks of the little Pigeon River.

The Edgewater Hotel has a towering altitude and an uncompromising attitude toward excellence in guest relations, comfort, safety and value. Our property has something to offer every type of traveler whether you are vacationing with your family, hiking the Smokies, honeymooning or attending a convention at our neighbor’s house, the Gatlinburg Convention Center.

We are proud of our resort property and the countless number of travelers that we have welcomed from all over the world. Every visitor enjoys being on the receiving end of our southern hospitality, plush accommodations and pampering amenities.


You can enjoy all the comforts of home within the resort while exploring nature outside on the grounds of the property. Trout fishing is a favorite vacationing sport that you can do in our front yard. There are 800 miles of hiking trails in the Smokies just one block from the Edgewater. All the shopping, adrenaline-pumping attractions and restaurants are all walking-friendly destinations including Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies and Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort.
