It is so peaceful at the Edgewater Hotel that you would never guess that our hotel is just steps away from the action of downtown Gatlinburg! Our hotel is situated on River Road, which is a quiet street that runs parallel with the Parkway and is a pleasant place for an evening stroll away from the crowds. As most folks are unfamiliar with this side street, there is very little traffic so that you can sleep soundly through the night! You can also enjoy the peaceful surroundings from your private balcony, where you can view the beauty of the Smoky Mountains and the tranquil sounds of the Little Pigeon River.


2. Walking Distance to Attractions

Our downtown Gatlinburg hotel is within easy walking distance to all of the top attractions in town, including Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, the Gatlinburg Sky Lift, the Aerial Tramway to Ober Gatlinburg and the Hollywood Star Cars Museum. We also just next door to the Mysterious Mansion, a thrilling haunted house attraction where you must find your way through secret passageways, dark corridors and winding staircases! After an exciting day of exploring the streets of downtown Gatlinburg, you can look forward to returning to the Edgewater Hotel for a swim in our pool or a soak in our poolside hot tubs!


3. Excellent Dining Options

When visiting the Great Smoky Mountains, it is practically a requirement to sample some of the delicious Southern cooking!
