Townsend Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Romantic Honeymoon Cabin

This cabin is tucked away in a gated Golf Course community with the quiet and peacefullness that you are looking for in the mountains. We are on the peaceful side of the mountain with a short trip to Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg for all the commercial activities (Dollywood) to include snow and snow skiing. Enjoy the hot tub on the deck under the stars or the jacuzzi in the great room. This cabin has a king size bed situated in the great room in front of the fireplace with a queen size hideabed for the little ones. Everyone enjoys the fireplace. Very cozy. Full kitchen, dining area & Washer and dryer. Bathroom with tub/shower. Great location for hiking down to the stream or through the woods without ever getting in your car. Be lazy and just relax. Safe area for the kids to run and play

We have added a child's sleeping loft ....bring their sleeping bags. Kids love it.

About Lucy Barnes

We purchased this little cabin for our get away and a place to sit back and relax more upon retirement. Lex has been coming to Maryville & Townsend since he was a young boy. His Mother grew up in Maryville and he spent his summers with his Grandparents. My first trip to the Smokeys was when I was 16.

We have had it under management with a company in Townsend and have decided to personally takeover the management so we can have a hands on with our guest. We are always available for questions. As a realtor for 37 years I know how to work from my computer and phone at any given time. We take pride in our ownership and maintenance. Lex, upon retirement, got his Captain's License and now offers fishing charters in Crystal River along with scalloping trips. I am currently with Re/Max and have recently had my son, Nathan, rejoin me. We have 2 older boys John and Steven with 8 Grandchildren and 1 Great Granddaughter. We are very family oriented and understand the value of family time and vacations. We are both natives of Crystal River, Fl .

Lucy Barnes purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Lucy Barnes chose Tennessee

We chose this property because of the quaintness, cozyness and privacy. The security of being in a gated community was a superb benefit as we are out of state owners. We enlarged the deck and added the hot tub and outside swing.

What makes this cabin unique

Quiet and relaxing..........We love bringing Grandchildren and everyone enjoying the fireplace and making memories. One set of Grandchildren love the Pigeon Forge area and the others love the outdoors of the creeks and tubing. Something for everyone.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Santa & I wanted to let you know that we absolutely loved the cabin. We got home to a whirlwind Easter weekend and the week was not much better. The week away in the mountains was exactly what we needed. The cabin was so quiet and peaceful, we hard;y wanted to leave to go

eat or sightseeing. We have decided that we don't need to tell too many people about Townsend or it will become the overcrowded tourist trap that Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are. We did venture out , but were always glad to get back to the peace and quiet of the cabin.

Our favorite things about the cabin were the great kitchen and the beautiful rustic bed. We were also glad that it was cool enough for a fire a couple of nights. The Cades Cove display was beautiful and even more so when we discovered the light switch Another fascinating discovery was the red-tailed hawk's nest that we spotted in the tall pine tree between cabin 3 and cabin 4. We were able to watch the male hawk come and go taking care of mama hawk on the nest. The outdoor swing was also a favorite feature of ours.

So, to sum it up, the Magnolia Cabin gets two thumbs up from Santa & Mrs. Claus. Hopefully it will be available next year if we are blessed to make the get-away to the mountains. In the meantime, we will be sharing with our family and friends what a great place it is. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Private, very clean and well kept

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was beautiful on the inside. Spacious, very clean and everything was convienant. Huge king size bed was extremely comfortable. Jacuzzi tub on inside was large and wonderful as well as the hot tub that was literally two steps away from the side door. The property is very private and perfect for a romantic getaway or as I did a solo retreat from civilization . You can see lights at night from neighbors but cannot see their cabins. I absolutely loved this cabin and would definitely stay there again.

Magnolia House

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Townsend numerous times thru out the years in several different cabins. For the money and the size of the cabin you will not find a better cabin. It is by far the cleanest cabin we have ever stayed. Even those we paid $400 plus per night. You will find well stocked toiletries such as shampoo, toilet paper, paper towels dish detergent trash bags etc. We always bring our own because some places give them out like they are gold. Due to health issues We had to return one day sooner of our four day stay. We wished we could have stayed longer. Our little Cocker Spanial loved being on the deck with us. She had adequate space in the yard to do her business without going on the street. Kudos to the owners for maintaining such a beautiful, clean well thought out, client user cabin. Would highly suggest to others.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We have the cabin set up so we can enjoy it when we have time to get away. I want my guest to have the same benefits that we do to enjoy while they are in our home. Welcome back anytime.
