What could be better than riding or driving the Tail of the Dragon and Cherohala Skyway, then sleeping in the trees of the Great Smoky Mountains? Welcome to River’s Edge Treehouse Resort, where guests sleep in luxuriously appointed elevated cabins right on the Cheoah River. Each of the six unique, one-bedroom treehouses features first-class amenities, including a king-sized memory foam bed with luxury linens, a table for two, and a private deck with a gas grill. In addition, vehicles enjoy under-the-treehouse parking.

“We’re so excited to have all six treehouses open! We love offering something upscale and completely different to our guests,” says owner and Robbinsville native Laila Hill Mortimer. “We’ve already hosted more than 70 guests since our first treehouse opened in late June.” Only five minutes from civilization [Robbinsville, NC], River’s Edge guests can easily access the many activities, amenities, and shopping in the surrounding area.

“Everything was perfect down to the lotion and soap! To sleep up in the trees with the windows open, hear the river, and relax by the fire was heavenly,” wrote Joyce and Brian R. of St. Louis, MO. Near the Tail of the Dragon and Cherohala Skyway, motorsports enthusiasts can take a break from the great roads and enjoy nearby lakes, whitewater rafting, hiking, and easy access to Cherokee and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Guests will be pampered with daily continental breakfast delivery, free WiFi and satellite TV, while their vehicles are safely parked right below their treehouse. The two common areas also include a charcoal grill, Adirondack chairs, fire pits, picnic tables, horse-shoe pit and nature trail to the river.
