About Cyndie Cornelius

I have been selling Smoky Mountain Real Estate since 2007 and managing Smoky Mountain Rental Properties since 2014. As the Owner and Principal Broker of a Townsend based Real Estate Firm, I have been in and out of hundreds of rental cabins. Feeling strongly that people want to be treated to a clean and well stocked cabin in a private surrounding, my husband and I decided to see if our theory was correct. We purchased our first cabin in 2014 and put it in service. The demand was overwhelming, and we soon purchased our second and third. The owners of Laurel Mist purchased this cabin from us and we agreed to manage the rental of this cabin as well, since it has the same private setting and warm interior decor that our guests enjoy. We felt Laurel Mist was a perfect match for our clients.

Why Cyndie Cornelius chose Townsend

The atmosphere and location of this cabin provide the perfect getaway for the owners. Nestled into the trees and well off the roadway, the privacy abounds. Townsend is a small town that is a gateway community to the National Park. To visit the area opens up the entire park to visitors. This cabin has a warm interior with a huge main living space and stacked stone fireplace. The french doors that lead to the screened in back porch add a bright and inviting outdoor living area to the already spacious interior.

It was for the owners, a perfect choice to enjoy themselves, and to share with other guests to the area.

With strong ties to UT, this home away from home was a no brainer!

What makes this cabin unique

Laurel Mist backs to county parkland and a nature preserve. This cabin is has great outdoor space and privacy abounds. Located in the same Natural Surroundings as The Cove and Smoke Rise, this cabin will sleep four, offering a bit larger accommodations when needed.

Relax on the screened in porch and enjoy the sounds of surrounding nature.

Beautiful, clean, outstanding service, easy hiking access!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Laurel Mist and our third stay in one of Cyndie's cabins. We love the easy access to the hiking areas of the park and the quiet atmosphere of Townsend. The cabin is always very clean, with comfortable furniture and bed. The kitchen has everything you need to cook in. We love the screened in back porch, complete with table, chairs, and rocking chairs!

Cyndie has always been easy to work with, but she and Warren were especially helpful during this stay. On our first night there, we couldn't get the TV to work. After 20 minutes of trying, I texted Cyndie; she gave us several suggestions and when that didn't work she and Warren came in person. It took him another 20 minutes but he finally figured it out! During that time we had a great conversation and we were glad to have had a chance to meet them in person.

We can't think of any reason to stay anywhere else in the Smokies!

Clean & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Second time booking with Cyndie, just a different cabin and had the same experience both times. The cabins are the cleanest we have stayed in, in the Townsend area and are very convenient to many different places that are desirable for visiting. They are warm, inviting, stocked with anything and everything you would need, except your own food. They are nicely decorated and cozy. Booking with Cyndie is thorough and her response time is excellent!

Great location ....Quaint and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay with one of the properties managed by Cyndie and as always, she is a fantastic hostess! This cabin offers quite a bit of space to spread out! We decided to stay for an extended vacation to enjoy Christmas near the Smoky Mountains and do our hikes and of course, eat out! We cooked the Christmas meal in the cabin and had everything we needed for our feast. We had to leave early (sniff sniff) because the Arctic Blast was bringing historical lows to our home state and we had to get back to deal with that, but wish we could have stayed longer!!

Upon entering the cabin, we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many cabins in Townsend, TN and this is the best cabin we have stayed in. We loved the close proximity to Cade's Cove and we love Townsend, the cabin was equipped with anything you would need, and appreciate the fact all electrical switches were marked. The laundry room not only had a washer/dryer, but shelves for storage to store our suitcases, ice chest, etc. Wi-Fi and cable were great! Cyndie was great to work with, but we never had any problems for reason to contact her during our 9-day stay.
