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!

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, Comfortable and Private Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin so clean and private. This cabin was perfect in every way for the two of us and our well behaved dog. So much attention to detail, the furnishings and decorative touches made this cabin feel warm and inviting. Lovely linens, comfortable bed and plenty of towels were provided. The kitchen was fully stocked with nice dishes, pots, pans and utensils. We didn't do much cooking there are good restaurants in the area. We are looking forward to returning to Laurel Valley in the fall. There really is so much to see and do in this area. The process of booking on line worked very well for us and Cyndi Cornelius was fast in her response times. We cannot say enough great things about our stay in this cabin. When booking your next vacation in Townsend do not hesitate to stay in the Laurel Mist cabin or any of the other cabins Cyndi manages. You will be glad you did!

We very much Enjoyed the screened in porch with the table out there and the fireplace!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the screened in porch with the table out there and the fireplace! We were pleased as we drove up the driveway for the first time that the house looked so well taken care of and indeed it was. The inside was perfect except for one thing. There was a ridge in the middle of the mattress and when we were getting ready to check out (we needed to call about something else) and we mentioned the ridge and the girl on the phone said the mattress iprobably needed to be flipped.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your stay. We appreciate knowing about the mattress, and it has been flipped. The cleaning crew did flip the mattress and it is all good. It is the first time we have ever heard anything about it. Thanks for the heads up.

Best vacation we've spent in the Smokies

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Laurel Mist. Cabin was clean and well supplied for our needs. Biggest surprise was where it was located in the Laurel Valley Resort. We had planned to vacation in the Smokies and spend most of our time in the park in Cades Cove; what we found was the resort was even better adapt for our walks than the park would have been. A walk around the resort can be as little as 4-5 miles for a complete circuit (about 2-hours), or you can add some of the high roads and stretch it to closer to 10 miles (about a 4 hour walk). We thoroughly enjoyed the cabin, the resort, and the town. We returned home and to work more recharged from this vacation than any in the past. One last word, Cyndie was very accommodating and very responsive. We will definitely return to her properties in the future.

A Home during transition

  • 5 of 5

My Son, who grew up here, along with his wife and daughter of 3, were transitioning from NY to TX and needed a place to stay while visiting home here in the Smokies. Their stay at Laurel Mist turned at least a week of their move into a vacation retreat and gave them a respite from the stress of moving. From the first moment they walked through the door, the cabin was more like a home than a rental. And the logistical process of getting the cabin, from first seeing it online till it was time to leave, was seamlessly easy and hiccup-free. Overall a wonderful and memorable experience that turned a time of transition into one of the most memorable and happy weeks ever. Laurel Mist will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we hope to return for many reunions in days to come.
