We had a wonderful time at this cabin! The accomodations were clean, comfortable and had everything you need plus a few things you might have forgotten. The view was beautiful and the rockers on the porch relaxing. The kids loved the hottub.Thanks for everything Faith!

Nice cabin great view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. We stayed a full week and enjoyed every minute. The cabin was clean and cozy. Nothing fancy but efficient. Kitchen very adequate and hot tube was great. Much more than we bargained for. The owners are great and insure you have what you need. We will be back.

Not a good experience

  • 1 of 5

Our visit started out with not being able to check in until 5:00. The cabin is very low rent and not very clean. We actually found French fries and a fork in the floor beside one of the beds! The kitchen is poorly stocked. There wasn't even a baking dish for us to cook a casserole. We rented a DVD and could not get the DVD player in the living room to work. All in all the place is rather sketchy. I would not recommend.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us and I apologize for any inconvenience. All linens, towels, and beds had been freshly made and all was clean. The vacuuming had not been completed and I told you that when you arrived before 4:30. I also asked you to call me if there was anything you needed. If you had asked I would have brought you a casserole baking dish and had my son fix the problem with the DVD player. Being on the property we can fix most any problem you might have but I can't fix it if you don't tell me that you have a problem. I want all my guests to have a great experience and I'm very sorry that you did not. Faith

Beautiful view, helpful hosts, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The best of all worlds; this cozy cabin has outstanding views of the mountains and feels secluded, but in fact you are a short 10 minute drive to "town" where you can get everything you need. Owners were very friendly, and helped us everything we asked. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!

love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Love love love this place!!wonderful location-you feel like you are out in the boonies but only about a 5 mile drive to town.Faith is a wonderful host and does a great job with the cabin.everything was clean and very well stocked-i didn't think it would be as stocked as well it walk in,unpack and it just feels like home.due to a medical condition i was unable to use the hot tub at that time but i can't wait to come back in the fall to try it out(as well as the fireplace!).didn't need the tv in the cabin.we spent most of our time sitting on the front porch in the rocking chairs drinking our coffee and playing with the furry visitors (2 dogs and a kitty)while enjoying the view.hubby is a grilling freak and loved the gas grill out back-ran out to the store and grabbed some steaks and baked potaoes for dinner there the first was just my husband and i here.we have spent the last 10 years caring for his 91 year old gram and this was the perfect place for us to have some alone time and forget about the craziness of life.have i mentioned that i can't wait to come back again?

Cozy cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My family, 3 adults, two 6 year olds, has a great 3day visit. The cabin was a short drive from Townsend TN. We left the cabin daily, to go into the GSM National Park nearby. We returned to cook a quick meal, play cards and soak in the hot tub. The cabin is clean, and well maintained, with plentiful linens and the kitchen has all the standard equipment +. More beds than we needed. The hot tub was a great feature, for adults and the kids.

Thanks Faith.

the Y in Townsend
Car: necessary

1&1/2 to2 miles from Cabin, Tuckaleechee Caverns, and Davy Crocket Riding Stable, Heritage Museum is on the right just before entering the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Y is a great place to swim or lay in the sun. Turn right for a must do visit to Cades Cove for nature watching and Viewing Historical Cabins.
