Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Townsend - Wind Dancer

One loft bedroom with fantastic view of mountains.

A charming and beautiful cabin with real rustic split log construction with sweet surroundings. Cabin has a large wrap around deck with a beautiful view. Deck is very private, with a porch swing and two rockers . A great place to sit and enjoy your morning coffee. Also has a gas grill and a 5 person hot tub. Loft bedroom has very comfortable king size bed , wake up and look out the big window at the beautiful view! We have just installed a half bath upstairs also.

Downstairs we have a fully equipped kitchen, 60 in. flat screen T.V., queen size sleeper sofa, and rock stacked gas fireplace.

Have a full size pool table, a Jacuzzi tub to relax in and a full bath with washer and dryer.

Cabin has central heat and air condition. Just installed WiFi.

The resort has a gorgeous swimming pool and a club house with picnic tables and chairs and also a gas grill for your use.

We are about 5- 10 minutes from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park entrance. If you enjoy nature trails, bike trails, floating down the river, or fishing and golfing, horse back riding you will love Townsend! Townsend has art and craft stores and several great restaurants. Only about seven miles to the entrance to Cades Cove and about 30 to 40 minutes through the beautiful mountains to get to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

Also only about 5 minutes to Tuckaleechee Caverns.

Owners: Eddie and Alice Cansler 423-337-1443

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with this cabin because of the cabin itself and the awesome view. We have done a lot of remodeling on the cabin, and adding new furniture.

I spent hours online looking for a cabin, I feel like I was playing Russian Roulette trying to pick a cabin that was:

1) Private 2) Clean 3) Had a Great location 4) Had great amenities. I found this cabin and the views sold me, but was depending on the reviews to make my final desicion.

As soon as I walked on the porch I said OMG, wow! That view is spectacular! The house was clean, the kind of detailed clean that not only is evrything spotless there was no dust on the fan blades or on top of decorations displayed high. Most importantly, the hot tub was super clean. You have enough privacy to go to the hot tub in your skivvies. You are near other cabins but can't see on the porches. (the leaves are still on that could change). The owner was great and the property is clean and comfortable.

The cabin was better than advertised. Very clean and cozy and has a wonderfull view. Booking and getting into the cabin could not have been easier. Alice was very helpful with local food recommendations and was always quick to reply to any messages. We will be returning to this location many times in the future. Thanks again.

A Wonderful Little Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Windancer. It was exceptionally clean and well stocked with all of the essentials. Both Alice and Eddie were concerned with ensuring our stay was as great as we expected. And the view is out of this world. Will plan to return in the future.

The PERFECT getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to Townsend to celebrate our 23rd Anniversary. This cabin was exactly what we were looking for in a home away from home. The cabin overlooks a peaceful valley. The only noises we really heard were the church bells ringing in the distance and the sound of the wind. The mountain views from the deck are spectacular. The cabin is perfectly located. It is very private and includes all the necessities for a wonderful getaway. Close by are horseback riding, Tuckaleechee Caverns, Tubing, and scenic drives. We did see the caverns and went on the Cades Cove drive nearby. The views are breathtaking. We found that we could not wait to get back to the cabin. We preferred just enjoying the wrap around deck, hot tub, and all the comforts of this cabin. Thank you Alice and Eddie for allowing us to enjoy your home.

Amazing location! Spacious and clean! All you need in one place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Spacious cabin, for a couple and a kid (or two). We were 2 adults upstairs and a child on a sleeper sofa downstairs. Very clean and organized! View is terrific. All amenities were available onsite. Full kitchen, washer and dryer etc. Owner is very hospitable and available to communicate. Driving up to the cabin is challenging, but you get used to it and we ended up appreciating the height for the view and the fresh air! Hot tub is a great plus! We can't wait to be back. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟👍👍👍👍👍
