Townsend Cabin Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom,sleeps 2-10 with a great panoramic mountain view

Wind Rider Lodge is a large 5-bedroom handcrafted mountain cabin sitting on the point of a private mountain ridge. This gives you a panoramic mountain view from every room. Wind rider is filled with log furniture and antiques. The large wrap around porch gives you plenty of room to enjoy the mountains from your rocking chair or maybe watch the family of red tail hawks as they soar above the trees as they teach their young to fly . There are kinds of wildlife that call Blue Smoke Mountain home. So weather you are sitting on the porch or relaxing in the hot tub watching the fireflies play among the many trees. You will find that Blue Smoke Mountain Cabins is a place for you to regroup and reconnect with your love ones.

Includes: Washer / Dryer, 26' x 30' open area, all log furniture & antiques, DVD - DISH network, phone, log staircase.

Cabin history: Blue Smoke Mountain Cabins are located 3.4 miles from Townsend and 5 miles from The Great Smoky Mountain Park and 17 miles from Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. There are only four cabins and our home on the mountain so each cabin is secluded with its own private mountain view. Our cabins are handcrafted and equipped with everything you will need to feel at home. We like to call it roughing it easy. We are family owned and operated . We are open year round.

The wildlife: We have done our best to preserve the wild beauty we found here. We have all manner of wildlife that roam our mountain and call Blue Smoke Mountain their home. The birds will sing to you all day and the crickets will lull you to sleep at night. You really don't want to miss the firefly show each night. These mountains surely have it all.

Fantastic family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this cabin during a getaway with my mom, sister, mother in law, and niece. The beds were comfortable, and the only challenge was deciding who got the beds in the open living areas. The cabin had a great kitchen and dining area that was put to use daily! I'd recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a great deal and a relaxing time with breathtaking views.

Our whole family loved this cabin. It was absolutely perfect for our reunion.

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room for all of us. It was very spacious and the downstairs area was nice and open. Perfect for our family get together. It was clean and very well decorated. The ladies of our group kept finding little things placed all over that they just loved. I loved sitting out on the back porch, looking at the mountains, and having my morning coffee. It was very relaxing, especially the hot tub. We highly recommend this cabin and hope we can return again soon.

We've stayed 3 times and love coming back! Breath taking views! Beautiful cabins with hot tubs! Stay at the cabin or go explore the area either way you've enjoy it. Clean and feels like home away from home.

Love the location, the cabin and views were absolutely beautiful!!

  • 4 of 5

Hey mrs linda, we love the area and the location was perfect for us. We did find some trash, some candy wrappers and popsicle sticks in and around the house. Looks like there may have been a house full of children before us.. :-) over all we where very pleased with our experience in Townsend and will definitely consider your rentals for future consideration. Thanks Mrs Linda! ! :-)

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

Runaway was the perfect cabin for our weekend getaway. We loved the cabin with all the bedrooms and the decks. We especially liked sitting out in the chairs on the deck in the mornings taking in the view of the mountains. Very quiet area with nice shopping and restaurants close by. We would love to go back to runaway again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights of our 10 day motorcycle trip. The view is unbelievable. The cabin clean and new looking. Well stocked kitchen and grill. The owners live right there and were very friendly. The only negative is that it is really a 2 bedroom cabin. It has 5 beds but 2 are in common areas and the third is in a room that is just larger than the bed. Only kids would fit in this room. We had four couples so it worked fine, just no privacy for the two couples in the common areas. The other watch out is the drive up to the cabin. We are experienced motorcycle riders but it scared us. Very steep gravel road. However, the bottom line is that the stay here was the highlight of our trip. We would do it again, but stay here longer.
