Relaxing, comfortable, riverside cabin

  • 5 of 5

Ok, so this is my second time here. The owner has made improvements. There is a new air conditioning system. Much more comfortable now. The owners are super nice too. The grill ran out of propane and the owners came right over and replaced it. The cabin is on the river and water tubers drift by as you sit on the deck. Best part....FREE WATER TUBING. My kids love it, but be prepared, every time I went I was questioned where I was staying until someone would just say, ok go ahead, its free. The kitchen is stocked. This is an out of the way town (Townsend), but there is a grocery store 2 minutes away and a fully equipped kitchen to cook. The park enterance is only 1 minute so if you want to see Cades Cove you can't get closer. The cabin doesn't look like much when you drive up but it is a very nice place to stay and I wouldn't hesitate booking here again.

Enjoyed the vacation

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the cabin and the rustic feel it had. It had everything we needed for our vacation. The view from the deck was awesome. We seen many forms of wildlife from Canadian Geese, otters, squirrels and baby rabbit. The river was enjoyable, the morning fishing was excellent. The cabin was a short drive to all attractions in the area. We will book this cabin again when we come back to the area.

If you like to be near the water, this is a property worth considering.

  • 4 of 5

Staying at this property worked out well for me. Betty was prompt, kind, and helpful in her communications. The location was great for doing things in Townsend and for excursions into the mountains. The downstairs bedrooms and bathroom are small, but adequate and fully furnished. There is one larger bedroom in the loft. The common area of the A-frame is roomy and full of light. There is an electric fireplace that, while not giving off the aroma of a real fireplace, adds a nice ambiance to the room. And if you leave the windows open, you can listen to the river. Beside being furnished, the cabin is equipped with everything you need for any length stay, from linen to complete kitchen and laundry. The highlight for me was the balcony. It is large enough for spending significant time there, and it directly overlooks the river.

I only had two items which brought the rating from five to four stars. However, for me they were significant. 1) I know that buildings near water can get musty, but the cabin had apparently not been adequately aired out before my arrival, and it took three days of running fans and keeping windows open for the odor and allergens to dissipate to an acceptable level. 2) A man claiming to be a family member entered the cabin without prior notice or invitation. I am fairly certain that won't happen again.

Owner's Response: We have been working on the air quality in our cabin. We recently installed a new air conditioning system that we hope will alleviate the issue. My brother-in-law went by to check on the cabin because he thought it was vacant. This will not happen again.

Worth what we paid for it. Will stay again!

  • 4 of 5

Over all a good stay. Only complaints are. We could hear the people in the camp ground next door. We were laying in bed in the loft and could hear people talking. Luckily there was a fan that we turned on. Also, the driveway is very hard to see at night. Some reflective driveway markers would help! The cabin was clean and well stocked. The deck on the river was superb!! We ate breakfast there two mornings. One other note. The loft is not for older people! The stairs are very steep! Access to the river is also very steep.
