Property description

Take a moment and let me share with you the uniqueness of 'Genesis,' my own private escape. This authentic log cabin/chalet, completed in 2001, boasts three stories, over 2000 square feet, and overlooks the Little River, awesome! Step through the front door and your attention is immediately drawn to the high cathedral ceilings, allowing you to enjoy the warm woodlands outside the two stories of windows. Spacious seating arrangements are here, and all of the Broyhill seats will recline for your comfort! The 60' big screen TV is a hit with cable/DVD/VCR. To complete the coziness is an Englander wood stove, champagne-colored ceramic tile, ceiling fans, and main conversation piece is the hand-hewn staircase, cut from locally fallen timbers. Step outside to the screened balcony and awe at the majestic Smokey Mountain backdrop against the serene blue sky. Occasionally you just may see the hazy 'smoke' boiling your way, which gives those beautiful mountains their name. Breathtaking!


Three or four bedrooms plus sleep loft...3 baths: Upstairs is a full bath, two bedrooms each with a queen bed and full futon, and a sleep loft area with full bunk on bottom and single on top. Include the king bed on the main level and the bunk in the game room and you have total sleeping arrangements for 16. Comfortable for 9, real cozy for the full 16!

Speaking of game room, it sports a regulation oak, Georgetown slate billiard table for your entertainment! Although we have plenty, you may wanna bring your 'prized' cue stick and strut your stuff. Down here is another TV with Sega Genesis, games, VCR, Cable, Dart board and darts, and an exercise bike to stay in shape while on your vacation : ) Free swimming pool privileges for our guests at the lovely Laurel Valley Golf and Country Club only 4 scenic miles away!

Outdoor fun...: For your pleasure, 'Genesis' has an outdoor fire pit for sharing conversation, roasting marshmallows or hot dogs, warming up on a cold winter's night, etc. A favorite place to be.

Area activities galore...: You're only 18 miles from Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Gatlinburg, Ober Gatlinburg and skiing, music theaters, outlet malls, and activities of all sorts. Historic Cades cove is only 7 miles away...slow down and let the dear pass! Bordering on the Great Smokey Mountain National Park boundary line, nature truly abounds. With a four mile River running through it, tubing is the biggest pastime in Townsend during the hot, sweltering months...looks like a polka dotted river! Newly opened Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center is only a mile away! Why not check out spelunking or geocaching while in our area... there's some mighty fine, unique little treasures to be found in this cozy town!

How about that 'fisherman's dream'..Tennessee Little River that you can marvel at from any of the private balconies at 'Genesis.' Just a short drive to 'wet your pole'. 'Genesis' is one of the closest chalet to the National Park, you can actually walk down the private, dead-end road and step across the boundary line! Townsend has a fantastic five mile bike trail, a fly fishing school, occasional bluegrass/molasses festivals, and gorgeous mountain golf greens, nice dining, hiking trails, horseback riding, many tubing opportunities, and is within seven miles of historic Cades Cove. New to our town is the Smoky Mountain Heritage Center.

You're only 18 miles from Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Gatlinburg, music theaters, outlet malls, and activities of all sorts. Play like a squirrel...run out for the goodies then retreat to your little nest on the 'peaceful side' of the Smokies in Townsend, Tennessee. It all awaits you at River Bluff Cabins in the Smokies.

Other Activities: Tubing, Cave Exploring, Geocaching

Golf: During the months of June, July and some of August you will have swimming privileges ad the lovely Laurel Valley Country Club and Golf course. Sitting high and surrounded by lush green mountains and playing greens....nice! Only 4 scenic miles away.

Ski: Thinking ahead to a winter retreat? Adventurous Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort is only 20 scenic miles away. Park in Gatlinburg and take the famous areal tram up to the resort. From beginners to the novice, a trail to blaze for all. Skating rink and hot chocolate inside....ummmmmh.
