Romance and serenity nestled in the warmth of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains...a cabin beyond
exquisite, surrounded by peace, and the wonders of God. You'll find yourself in a rocker on your
balcony awe- stricken at nature while listening to the soothing sounds of the Little Tennessee River
below. 'Refuge' is a 24' x 28' authentic log cabin complete with a tin roof to enjoy the occasional
summer rain! Made of white-pine timber with tall cathedral ceilings and exposed beams, this one-room, studio-styled cabin makes you feel snug, yet its structure with plenty of windows to view the woodlands, gives you a wide open feeling of being right out there with nature. A super comfortable feather-topped king bed awaits you. If you bring the kids, they can sleep sleeping bags we provide in the loft area. There is also a full mattress there for the comfort of an 'older' kid .. like me : )
Amenities: Amenities for your comfort include a TV with VCR/DVD player. You'll have a fully equipped kitchen including trash bags, paper towels, some spices, etc., dish detergent, bath tissue, shampoo, hair dryer, VCR/DVD a few movies, etc., boombox with CDs, and even wildlife food to feed the squirrels out back, all small appliances and cleaning necessities, a gas grill on the 28' deck and a picnic table.
Wouldn't be complete without a couple of rockers, too. There is a genuine Jacuzzi tub for two in the bedroom area, and everything is strategically positioned so as to enjoy from anywhere you are such as seeing the TV from the king bed, the fireplace from the Jacuzzi, and the wonders of nature outside, etc. Ceramic tile and ceiling fans complete this beauty.
Just bring your food and your honey cause the rest awaits you...right on down to the candles and bubble bath! We've added an outdoor fire ring and wood for you to reminisce by the fire and roast a marshmallow or two... now what do you thing about that!
Activities & Attractions: Bring your pole for that 'fisherman's dream'... the Tennessee Little River, which you can marvel at from your private deck at 'Refuge.' With about a 20 minute hike, you can wet your pole and perhaps come up with a fresh trout for summer! As you are enjoying the serenity of nature, you can gaze across the river and see the occasional hazy 'smoke' boiling over the mountaintops, which gives the majestic Smokies their name. Townsend has a three-mile bike trail, a fly fishing school, occasional bluegrass/molasses festivals, gorgeous mountain golf greens with free swimming pool access, nice dining, hiking trails, horseback riding, gobs of tubing opportunities, and is within seven miles of historic Cades Cove. New to the area is the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center. Just ask and I'll even see that you get free tickets to view the very popular museum! All that and you're only 18 miles from Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Gatlinburg, Ober Gatlinburg skiing, music theaters, outlet malls, and activities of all sorts.
The Cabin was amazing. One look at the wonderful glass full length windows takes your breath away. The view that the windows allow is delightful! The location of the cabin put us right at the door of Cades Cove. We loved staying at The Refuge and plan on repeating our stay. Jean and Ford Fortenberry
The cabin was beautiful and very clean. Everything we needed was there. We had our dogs with us and the property was good for walking them. We will stay there again. Thank you Billie for sharing your cabin with us. D Richardso S.C.
