Whether you’re heading to Nashville’s Honky Tonk row or retreating to the wonderful wilderness of the Great Smoky Mountains, there’s one thing that can make your stay in Tennessee just a little more enjoyable: a hot tub.

But there’s no need to book a fancy hotel suite to enjoy this amenity. You can find many cabin rentals in Tennessee, both in cities and far out in the woods, that offer hot tubs.

Lounging in a hot tub in the evening (or hey, in the morning!) is a great way to kick back, relax and enjoy the great outdoors. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for shooting stars if you’re out in the woods.

So, what’s the delay? Check out these 12 cabin rentals in Tennessee with hot tubs to find your perfect homestay pick.

Even better, this Tennessee hot tub cabin received a few renovations ahead of the 2021 travel season to ensure an even more comfortable stay. Oh, and there’s super-fast Wi-Fi in case you want to plan a movie night together after the sun sets.

  • Sleeps: 16

  • Rates from: $342/night

You’re just a short drive away from the suburbs of Nashville, making this cabin rental a great option for those who want to experience the bright lights of the city but have privacy in the evenings. In addition to the hot tub, there’s also a pool and fire pit, so you can enjoy Tennessee outdoor livin’. This is one of the best Tennessee cabin rentals with a hot tub for big groups since the pool and hot tub combined can easily fit the whole gang.

Why you should stay: A humongous mountaintop space.

  • Location: Pigeon Forge
  • Sleeps: 32
  • Minimum stay: 7 nights
  • Rates from: $500/night

This VRBO luxury property was originally built as a custom home and all of the customizations make it entirely worth a stay for the family — and we’re talking the entire family, as this Tennessee cabin with a hot tub is big enough for more than 30 people. Amenities beyond that oh-so-important hot tub include a theater, a billiards table, a fishing pond and more. There are near-endless spots for you and your favorite people to hang out and relax. In fact, you could book a stay here and never even need to leave the property in order to have a good time.

It starts at a downright reasonable $500 per night, though of course, the price goes up as you add more guests. Oh, and the hot tub only seats seven, so you will have to take turns.

  • Location: Gatlinburg
  • Sleeps: 12
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $516/night

This “executive” cabin is special for one primary reason: the views.

Wherever you’re seated, you’ll enjoy 270 degrees of unobstructed views of the dramatic Smoky Mountains. There’s no reason to even head indoors, but when you do, you’ll find wilderness-themed decor, a stone fireplace, and wood paneling at every angle.

Why you should stay: Cozy accommodations with a modern touch

  • Location: Sevierville
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $168/night

If Goldilocks were to have followed the three bears home to this cabin, she would’ve found just about everything “just right.” This cozy and somehow also spacious cabin with mountain views has a modern, clean feel to it, unlike some older Tennessee cabin rentals. There’s still the wood-and-leather motif you expect from a traditional cabin, but special touches such as the spiral staircase, walls of windows, and contemporary lighting make the property stand out. While not as expansive as some of the other cabins with hot tubs in Tennessee, this option is a great fit for small families or groups of friends.

Try your hand at one of the 60 games on the arcade machine or challenge your fellow travelers to a game at the air hockey table. Stream your favorite shows. Take a dip in the hot tub. Stargaze from the telescope. If you do decide to leave your private retreat, you’re just a few minutes’ drive away from all the entertainment, dining, and shopping offered in downtown Pigeon Forge.

  • Rates from: $375/night

Having a difficult time choosing between a cabin or a mansion homestay? With Chestnut Ridge, you get the best of both worlds.

The setting feels suburban, with neighbors nearby, and you’re a short drive from both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge so you can take advantage of the tourist attractions in both cities. The home features an expansive deck with a separate deck for the hot tub, soaring ceilings, a big farmhouse-style kitchen and modern, luxurious bathrooms.

Why you should stay: Instant access to the water

  • Location: Speedwell
  • Sleeps: 22
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $325/night

The state isn’t exactly known for its expansive waterways or beachfront, but that’s exactly what you get when you book this Tennessee cabin rental on Norris Lake. You’ll be on a no-wake cove, giving you instant access to the water — all you have to do is literally walk outside. Waters Edge Lakefront Cabin even comes with kayaks, so there’s no need to bring your own gear. This cabin features a mix of rustic and contemporary features that add to your comfort, such as plush carpeting in the bedrooms and ample outdoor living and dining space. Though this rental sleeps up to 22, it’s by using a combination of a loft, rec room pull-out couches, and bunk room with multiple bunk beds, so keep that in mind if you’re figure out how to divvy up the rooms.

Why you should stay: A ski lodge feel without the skis.

  • Location: Townsend
  • Sleeps: 14
  • Minimum stay: 4 nights
  • Rates from: $425/night

Love the feel and vibe of a ski lodge, but don’t really care for the skiing, or don’t want to head out west where ski lodges are more abundant? You can find your own little chalet in the Great Smoky Mountains. Greystone Chalet feels like your favorite luxury ski locale but is surrounded by the tamer Smoky Mountains. Cozy up with some hot chocolate beside the stone fireplace, read a book in the hammock out on the deck, or take a dip in the hot tub as you watch the nearby trees for the resident wildlife. Whatever the season, you’ll find something to love about this chalet (and the laid-back town of Townsend.)

Why you should stay: A convenient getaway for the whole family with exceptional views.

  • Location: Gatlinburg
  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum stay: 4 nights
  • Rates from: $415/night

The Longview Lodge was practically built for hosting groups or families. Everyone gets a place of their own, while enjoying larger spaces to come together, either as an entire group or in little pods of three or four. There’s plenty of outdoor dining and living space, a separate outdoor space with a cozy fire bowl and then a corner set aside for the hot tub. Wherever you are on the two-story deck, you’ll enjoy views of the Smoky Mountains. Inside, you get a huge kitchen, living room with another fireplace, a game area and more.

It’s one of the pricier cabin rentals in Tennessee with a hot tub, with rates that can climb above $1000 a night on holidays. But it’s a very high-end home and does have some quite nice outdoor living areas.

Why you should stay: Brand new cabin within walking distance to downtown Gatlinburg.

  • Location: Gatlinburg
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $350/night

The All-New Cabin in the City was just completed in 2019, meaning everything is fresh, fresh, fresh. The traditional interior provides cozy spots for dining, cooking, and simply hanging out, while the exterior provides views of downtown, comfortable seating, and a hot tub. The cabin’s location is probably the most noteworthy draw, however. It’s just behind Gatlinburg’s aquarium, about a half-mile from downtown. You’re so close, you can hear the nightlife from your back deck. (And walk home if you want to have a glass of Tennessee whiskey with dinner.)
