Extras: Our owners have many years experience planning vacations in this area, two have done this for a living. We would be happy to help you plan your trip. Extensive brochures available for you to review in the home. Table games, DVDs and VCRs for your indoor enjoyment, but you will not want to be inside when you can be enjoying our mountains!

About Richard Armstrong

Our Home is owned by 4 of us, Karen and I have been in the adventure and youth business for many years before she started in property management. This is our first attempt at combining our love of the outdoors and travel with vacation property management. We all love the Smoky Mountains and East Tennessee and are excited to share our knowledge with our guests. When you rent our home you can (if you desire) take advantage of our knowledge and passion for this area. Welcome to our home!

Richard Armstrong purchased this Cabin in 2008

Why Richard Armstrong chose Townsend

We love Blount County and Townsend! Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg can be fun to visit for the day, but then we are always ready to head home to Townsend. With less traffic and tourists, you are actually 'in' the mountains, not just looking at them! There are so many interesting shops and vendors from the usual tourist shops to woodworkers and dulcimer makers! Cades Cove and the National Park are only 10 minutes from our door. Avoid the crowds and enjoy some of the best hiking in the park from the Townsend Entrance!

                                                              Always a pleasure to stay at the Knotty Pine Cabin. Wonderful accommodations in a peaceful setting not far from the Smoky Mountain National Park. Always leave wanting to return soon.

                                                              Great cabin, with plenty of room

                                                              Great place to stay on the quiet side of the Smokys, awesome views and plenty of room inside and out. Already planning another trip to the " Knotty Pine "

                                                              Beautiful Cabin in an awesome area!

                                                              The home was clean and cozy and decorated for the holiday season which added to our enjoyment. The home is well maintained and it is a perfect set up for 3 couples since every room has an en suite. My husband grew up close to the Smoky's in Tennessee and was a little concerned that it might be too far away from the action for the younger couples, but they thought it was just right. Since it was the coldest week in years we did not have the opportunity to enjoy nature and the Smoky's as we would have liked. I guess we will need to plan another vacation for the summer. Thank you to Richard and Karen.

There is so much to do outside and in our valley that we hope you will just come on back and enjoy Townsend and Knotty Pine again, soon! Richard, Karen and Vickie, the Knotty Pine Crew!

                                                              Amazing Cabin

                                                              Everything was decorated beautifully for Christmas. The view was amazing. The driveways were a little steep but I guess that's mountain life. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of linens for extra warmth. It is a little far from Pigeon Forge but the drive was easy. Overall we loved it and we will be back next year!

                                                              Very clean and comfortable cabin with a Great View.

                                                              We stayed at the Knotty Pine Cabin for 10 days in early October. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. The view from the deck is one of the best. The cabin itself was very functional for us, having a full kitchen was a big plus. During our stay, We did see a bear about 100 feet from the cabin. No problems at all with the wildlife. Aside from one minor misunderstanding, We would rate the overall experience as Very Good.

                                                              Remains our favorite place to stay

                                                              We have been renting this cabin for many years. The owners have maintained it meticulously & are constantly updating & improving.

                                                              We are so fortunate that Richard allows our family dog to join us

                                                              at the cabin. The best part of all....enjoying the beautiful mountain
