Built in the 1930s, this long-standing hotel in the Gatlinburg has just completed a major renovation. The redevelopment revolves around Appalachian style, craftsmanship and contemporary standards, all providing a luxury stay in Great Smoky Mountains.
The inn has 36 cabin-inspired rooms with a fireplace and riverside tranquility. A range of specialty items includes plein air painting supplies, Smythson journals and beginner’s kit for crafting fly fishing lures.
The inn’s redevelopment was inspired by Gatlinburg’s early 1900s ambiance, where leisure and luxury reflected the character and charm of traditional mountain activities. The Rocky Waters Motor Inn celebrates the three cultures that defined life in Appalachia, driving elements like on-site food & beverage offerings, wellness components, diverse activity options and live music experiences.
