About Kimberly & John

John and I have enjoying the challenge of getting our new business up and going. My family is from the hills of east TN and southern Kentucky. From the mountains of the coal mining communities and a one room cabin on the side of a mountain to the Atomic Energy city, My family has been in the area a long time and witnessed a lot of different eras. John is from a family ranch in Kansas and this year we will have been married 30 years. From the country life of home grown food, fresh milk and eggs, our families heritage has surely changed in the last two generations as it has in yours. In the busy-ness of life these days, it's so nice to step back and slow down. Reminisce and enjoy the more simple pleasures of friends, family, nature and wildlife. We thank our Father God for the many blessings we have and can take for granted everyday.

Kimberly & John purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Kimberly & John chose Townsend

As you look at the information on this site about our cabin location, you will see the many varied choices our guests have here in the Townsend area that are within 10 minutes away. With very little hustle and bustle, there is something for most everyone. Our Mountain Memories cabin (and others available upon request) in the log home cabin resort offers a beautiful hide a way, a great starting place and even greater place to come home to from anywhere you would want to go in the mountains!

We hope to see you, here at Smoky Mountain Heritage Log the peaceful side of the Smokies! Only 5 minutes from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

What makes this cabin unique

We hope Mountain Memories will exceed your expectations and you will bask in the surroundings as we did when we decided to come to Townsend! We want to share it with you and many other guests that long for the mountains!

There are some cheap cabins around, but Mountain Memories is not a cheap stay. There are spendy campsites ($85 or more per night)or motel rooms that are not much less than our rates. Mountain Memories is an exhilarating vacation accommodation! Come and experience the difference high above the others!

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely vacation retreat! Wonderful cabin, beautiful view, expansive wrap-around porch, hot tub, large indoor spa tub, attractive decor, very clean. It was just two of us--felt luxurious to have so much space--but this cabin could fit a family of 4-6. Very private and all the little extras (Christmas lights on the porch, amenities in the kitchen, etc.) make things extra nice. The owners are extremely attentive. Highly recommend!

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

When booking our main priorities were having a beautiful view, a hot tub, and places to hike. Mountain memories was what we thought would be the best fit. Once we arrived we realized instantly that we’ve picked the right cabin. It was only two of us but it could easily sleep 4-6 people. The cabin was super clean & well decorated with amazing views. As for hiking we found a waterfall hike about 20 minutes away! We also went & visited the Tuckaleechee caverns! Lastly, if you decide to book (which you should!) you should eat at grandmothers kitchen!

Loved the cabin. It was clean, well furnished, and the hot tub was especially nice after a long day of hiking. We will definitely consider staying here again.

Townsend is a wonderful place to enjoy the great outdoors! Floating the Little Pigeon River, fishing, fly fishing (lessons even at the Outfitting Shop right here in Townsend), hiking day trails with maps and guides, sight seeing, photography, biking rentals and bike trails less than 5 minutes away, picnicking, shopping, zip lining, horseback riding. Art galleries, live music at the Pickin' Porch of the Dulcimer Shop and Danny Kay's, the Chocolate Bar for homemade candies of all kinds with a great coffee shop too. You might enjoy a step back into history and check out the museums of the Railroad, the Heritage Center and Cade's Cove. Townsend Visitors Center is full of suggestions, directions, and ideas to help you to determine just what and how you would like to spend your vacation!

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park entrance is less than 10 minutes away! If you have the time there are things to do in Townsend, TN. If you want to take in more of the Smokies, a scenic drive down the Foothills Parkway or around to Gatlinburg by way of the mountain and by the river to see the amazing forest, gentle waterfalls, birds and wildlife. Be refreshed in the spring with flowering trees and shrubs of rhododendrons, dogwoods, red buds and wild flowers. Summer fishing, floating, picnicking or even swimming at the 'Y'! Fall brings brilliant colors, gorgeous sunsets and misty mornings in the mountains. And even winter holds its beauty in icy falls and snowy hillsides.

Depending on the time of year and time of day a trip to the busy side of the mountains to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville are all filled with an almost limitless number of shows, sites, shopping and dining possibilities! Townsend is still my cabin stay of choice for quiet, quality, comfort and beauty, away from it all!
