A unique experience to connect with and enjoy the pristine, natural elements of the Great Smoky Mountains and the peaceful Tuckasegee River, this riverside cabin is the perfect place to call home! Create memories to last a lifetime at Laurel Bush Riverfront Cabins, an exceptional riverfront community unlike any other in Western North Carolina.

Inside your cozy getaway, find gorgeous woodwork throughout, two TVs with streaming capabilities, and a kitchen with all you need to create your favorite meals. You can enjoy sitting on the deck listening and watching the river go by. You can view many kinds of wildlife including Bald Eagles, River Otters, Ducks, Turkeys, Geese and occasionally deer or just sit at the fire pit on a cool evening while looking across the river at the original train wreckage from the movie starring Harrison Ford, “The Fugitive”! Gather for nights of stargazing around the wood-burning firepit.

Surrounded by the Great Smoky Mountains (Rated #1 National Park in 2020) and nestled on the banks of the Tuckasegee River, Laurel Bush is naturally suited for relaxation, recreation and/or adventures. Within a 50 mile radius there are many miles of hiking/biking trails (including the Appalachian Trail), whitewater rafting/canoeing/kayaking/tubing, waterfalls, swimming, fishing, the Cherokee Indian Reservation, Great Smoky Mountain Railway, Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and Hotel, Gatlinburg, TN, The Biltmore Estate, Cataloochee Ski area and much, much more.

The river right outside the door and the rain on the metal roof made for a super relaxing vacation!

We absolutely loved the deck overlooking the river! The tiny house made great use of the space. The loft was roomy, and the master bedroom was spacious with lots of storage. Nice quiet location. Oh, and The Fugitive train/bus site was across the rivier.

Our family of 4 enjoyed our week in this cabin. It had plenty of space for us and we loved the deck right on the water. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with bath towels, bed linens and blankets. The kitchen had plenty of plates and cups along with a set of pots, coffee maker, microwave and stove. The only things I would make note of is if you are over 6 feet tall you may have to squat to fit in the shower. This cabin is 1 of 4 along the river and then there is an RV park. The cabins are very close so when the neighbors are up at 6AM enjoying breakfast on their deck you can definitely hear them while trying to sleep in the main bedroom. Luckily we were their by ourselves until the last day. Would definitely rent again!!!
