About the property

2 BR, slps 6, stone frpl, gas logs, screened porch, wifi, pet friendly, comfy!

Breathe in the peacefulness of this mountain cabin located in beautiful Laurel Valley golf community in Townsend, Tennessee. This area is called 'The Peaceful Side of the Smokies' for many good reasons.

You will find it easy to relax in this comfortable cabin that we call 'Owl's Landing'. Enjoy two master suites, two couches, and a stacked-stone fireplace with gas logs for warmth and ambience. A well-equipped kitchen and dining area will add to your culinary experience. If you enjoy eating outdoors, you will love the extra large screened porch, where the wooded backyard will embrace and relax you. A large gas grill is provided. Keep your eyes peeled for a wild turkey, a fox, or perhaps a black bear strolling through!

Please read the reviews ~ our guests say it best!

Are you a golfer? Enjoy the outstanding golf course surrounded by beautiful mountains.

When you get tired of golfing, there is other FUN to be had. Within 10 miles, you will find great hiking, river tubing, horseback riding, shopping, and bike trails throughout Townsend. If you have never been to Cades Cove, that is a must see! An 11 mile loop of smoky mountain heaven! On one visit, I saw 19 deer, several wild turkeys, and 2 bear cubs - no kidding!

Within a 30 minute drive, you can be in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, or the McGhee Tyson Airport.

I encourage you to gather more information about the community by visiting sites about Cades Cove, Townsend Visitors Center, and Laurel Valley Golf Club.

Why Dogwood Cabins chose Townsend

We live 30 miles from this cabin. We enjoy it ourselves when it isn't rented. We start smiling the moment our car drives into Townsend. We begin relaxing as soon as we get to our cabin. It is our home away from home. We want it to be yours, too!

What makes this cabin unique

We welcome your four-legged family members!

Owl's Landing is semi-handicapped accessible. There are two steps leading to the porch. Otherwise, everything is on one level and easy to get around in a wheelchair.

Clean and large spaces. All the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

Owls landing is a great place. It is nice to get away from the commercial aspect of Gatlinburg and pigeon forge yet still be close. When we arrived I was surprised to see such a nice place for the price. Clean, very spacious and absolutely everything you would need in the kitchen to make meals or just coffee. I would recommend this house to anyone. We had six adults and two miniature dachshunds and we had plenty of room. I also appreciate that we were able to travel with our dogs. We have crates for them so a blanket on the floor, to not scratch the floor and they we at home also. Loved it

Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is perfect with everything you need. Location is close to great food and a beautiful area. It was great being able to take our yokies. The screen porch was perfect since I smoke and did not have to go out in the misty mornings. Wish we could have stayed longers. Thanks Sandy

Great for our large family

  • 4 of 5

Tree Frog Landing was wonderful. We have a large family and had plenty of room to spread out yet could all come together to watch football or have family game night. Having access to the golf course and pool made both our college kids and our younger ones happy. The ONLY reason this isn't 5 stars is because the owners are still improving the cabin but I know they'll hit 5 soon! They just got this one and are working on a few things, but nothing that interfered with our having a great stay! Owners fantastic to work with throughout the process. They answered questions and offered assistance when needed. Very clean and comfortable for everyone from our 12 year old to our college kids to Grandma that travelled with us. Would recommend it to others and hope to maybe visit again next year!

Lovely Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Owls Landing was very convenient to Townsend and to the Cades Cove area of the Great Smoky Mountains, which we love. It was a lovely drive through Laurel Valley Golf Community and the cabin is in a very quiet location. My husband has MS and we found the cabin very easy for him to walk around in. We were able to park just outside the front door on a paved drive, and it was just two steps to the porch, and we were inside. The cabin looks identical to the pictures on the VRBO site. There is even a crock pot in the was nice to come home after a long day in the park to a nice pot of Chili. It was nice to have two bathrooms when getting ready. We loved the screened porch, especially when it was raining. Sandy was very prompt in getting back with us when we had questions.

Thanks Sandy for all your help in making our vacation perfect. Bonnie and Joe

Lovely Mountain Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

An internet search for cabins in Townsend TN kept bringing me back to Owl's Landing. Sandy's communication was prompt and helpful. Sandy had made arrangements with the guard in the event of late arrival. The guard was very kind and helpful. The cabin was all that we had hoped for and included all amenities of home. We enjoyed a relaxing 3 days in the area and so enjoyed coming back to the cabin in the evenings. The screened in porch/deck overlooking the woods is awesome. We would definitely recommend Owl's Landing to others!

Amazing location and cabin! Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We went to the cabin for a relaxing family vacation. It comfortably slept 6 adults and was very spacious. It had everything we could possibly need. The men really enjoyed playing golf at the gorgeous golf course and the women enjoyed shopping at the local shops. Then spent the nights gathered outside on the peaceful screened in porch. It was so beautiful and relaxing...exactly what we were hoping for!! We even saw 2 bears right outside the cabin and lots of rabbits, turkeys, and birds!! We loved it and will definitely go back!
