Bearskin Lodge On the River

The Bearskin Lodge On the River has an authentic and welcoming atmosphere, which makes it a good choice for your honeymoon in the Smoky Mountains. Located in the heart of town one block from the main thoroughfare, it puts you within walking distance of all attractions but just off the beaten track. The lodge and rooms are furnished in rustic mountain style, and the friendly staff will add a touch of warmth to your visit.

You can choose a room with a balcony overlooking the creek nearby, or with city views on the other side. Rooms have fireplaces to keep you cozy in the evenings, and refrigerators and micro-waves to heat up snacks. Relax by the fire pits in the front after a long day in the mountains or after sightseeing in the city.

You can walk to most attractions, which saves the trouble of looking for parking in the city. The entrance to the National Park is just around the corner. Complimentary cups of coffee and Grab-and-Go breakfast in the lounge will get you going in the morning and you’ll find cocoa and hot apple cider waiting for you when you get back in the evening.
