Walland Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Here at Twin Valley Bed and Breakfast Horse Ranch you can enjoy the adventure of mountain living and the peacefulness of the mountains. Avoid the hustle and bustle of everyday life and immerse yourself in good 'ole fashion country fun! The ranch is built mostly of trees we logged from our mountains giving it the western/rustic feel of days gone by.

Step out of your cabin and hike our many trails, relax on the swing listening to the night sounds and enjoying the stars, hike to the outdoor chapel ,letting the creative juices flow, walk to the barn and help with morning/evening chores. The spring fed pond is great for fishing/swimming, cooking out and roasting marshmallows around the campfire ( plenty of wood to gather) Pavilion includes table/chairs.

Help feed and care for the petting animals which include donkey, fainting goats, lamb, kittens, horses, pot belly pig, rabbits........ride in the back of the pickup with the feed, hay, dog and children and make the rounds! I encourage all the 'hands on time' you can stand! Help with grooming, feeding, saddling and care of the ranch horses before and after each horse ride. All mountains rides are by advance reservations and will be specialized to your interest, age and experience level! I offer Half day rides and day rides which include breaks with drink/snacks. I give instruction when needed and the horse tours include lots of hills, faster riding with those who want to, stories/history of the area, games and a lot of YEEEHAAAs!

We have paddocks with shelters for those who are traveling with their own private horses.

Meet other like minded folks who may be staying at our Bed and Breakfast/Private units or camping shelters ,which are spread out throughout our 100+ acres.

About Janice Tipton

Hello, my name is Janice and I love realizing the dream my late husband and I have created. Being able to meet amazing folks from all over the world and sharing my ranch, horses/critters, mountain riding tips and the joys of mountain living is very rewarding to me. It is so wonderful to be able to say that people come as guests and literally leave as friends! They give as much joy to me as what I try to create for them. When we bought the ranch in 1983, no one had lived here or worked the land for over 40 yrs. Just overgrown land is what we started with. Slowly but surely we cleared, logged, dug trails, built paddocks, barns, cabin and enjoyed the joys of mountains riding! And now myself and the Twin Valley Family wish to show you all the BEST time possible. I have worked several ranches in Co and also have a AAS in Horse Husbandry so I enjoy teaching and sharing my love of horses and the mountains to all.

Janice Tipton purchased this cabin in 1983

Why Janice Tipton chose Walland

We chose to build Lukes Cabin in 1993 on our mountain property because we wanted to be able to accommodate honeymooners or small families who wanted to stay in the mountains without having to worry about people or cars right next door. The location is very private and beautiful but is within an easy walk to the barn/petting animals, horses or pond. The ranch is in Walland which is a short distance from Townsend, giving our guests easy access to the entrance of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. In the park you can visit Cades Cove, hike, bike, picnic, tubing and enjoy the old homestead historical buildings. Townsend is what we all like to call the 'peaceful side of the Smokys'! Visit the caverns, shops, restaurants, antique shops.......all within a 30 minute drive. Of course, a beautiful mountain drive will get you to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg in about 45 min. The Smoky Mountains have a lot to offer with such a variety of trees, animals and beauty.

What makes this cabin unique

You will enjoy being able to walk right out your door and have plenty to do without even getting in your car! Parents love not having to pack up all the children and gear just to go 'do' something. Kittens will greet you and are always ready to entertain the youngsters for hours. Without leaving the ranch, you can hike, ride horses, take lessons, fish/swim, relax in the rockers and be spiritually renewed in the great outdoors! If you feel like playing tourist, there are so many options to choose from, and only 2-25 miles from the ranch. Visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cades Cove, Heritage museum, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Knoxville, Townsend, Tubing, shopping, antiques, shows, caverns, biking........the list of things to do is endless! I will be glad to sit down with you and help you plan your activities....draw maps and give you brochures.

I originally planned a 30 day stay but my experience was so EXTRAORDINARY that I extended the time an extra couple of weeks! I rented here to be close to my family in the area for a visit. But what I got was the trip of a lifetime for myself! I feel like I have been at a rejuvenation retreat for the soul! I have been able to spend time out hiking endless beautiful mountain trails and was able to join in on several long, breath taking mountain rides on beautiful warm & sunny days, as well as in snow...just incredible for a city girl! All of the animals on the ranch are friendly and accessible to pet and feed and love on!! The ancient-ness of this land holds pure magic! I truly feel as though I have received the gift of "stepping out of time" while being at Janice T's Twin Valley Horse Ranch! Every day felt like an honor to be alive and remembering our rich past in these gracious mountains with a gracious caretaker and host of this beautiful property and these sweet animals. The fantastic finale was taking a night hike to the top of a hill, laying in the snow, star gazing under a clear sky and a full moon! Just simply Incredible! In my wildest dreams, I could have never expected THAT!!! I will hold the experience of this time in my heart for a very long time! Thank you Thank you Thank you Janice T! You are a wonderful host, a patient and kind teacher and one heck of a Cowgirl! I remain in awe......and look forward to returning some day. THANK YOU!

Great laid-back vacation

We had a wonderful stay in a cozy cabin. The kids loved helping to feed the animals, play with the kittens and collect eggs. All things that I remember doing as a child, and I am so glad that they had the opportunity to enjoy also. Jan does a great job with the rides taking you up into the mountains. You learn a lot about the local area, and get to know your horse. This is not your typical riding school ride, each horse has a personality (while still being well-mannered) and you get to help out in the stables as well. Highly recommended.
