Townsend is the Peaceful Side of the Smokies and has a lot to offer. There is The Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Tuckaleechee Caverns, Little River, Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center Museum, Little River Railroad Museum and Music Festivals. Townsend is a small mountain town with a lot of history and activities to explore. There is hiking, fishing, swimming, tubing, biking, horseback riding and yet it is close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. So you are close to all the activities or you can relax in a seclude mountain cabin and just enjoy the mountain views. We have it all.

Cabin history: Blue Smoke Mountain Cabins are located 3.4 miles from Townsend and 5 miles from The Great Smoky Mountain Park and 17 miles from Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. There are only three cabins and my home on the mountain so each cabin is secluded with its own private mountain view. Our cabins are handcrafted and equipped with everything you will need to feel at home. We like to call it roughing it easy. We are family owned and operated. We are open year round.

The wildlife: We have done our best to preserve the wild beauty we found here. We have all manner of wildlife that roam our mountain and call Blue Smoke Mountain their home. The birds will sing to you all day and the crickets will lull you to sleep at night. You really don't want to miss the firefly show each night. These mountains surely have it all.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: I came to Townsend as so many others on a vacation . It was my first trip to the mountains . I remember it was in June and all the flowers were in bloom! What a site I fell in love with Townsend right then and there. The people were so kind and helpful I felt right at home. It became a every year thing for us to come back to enjoy the mountains. Then in 1997 I was lucky enough to move here and start to build Blue Smoke Mountain Cabins. It was the best time of my life. With each cabin that was finished my roots grew deeper into these wonderful mountains I call home.Each day was something new and now I get to share that experience with each and everyone that come to stay at my cabins.

                      Why the Owner Chose Townsend:
                      Blue Smoke Mountain Cabins are located just 3.4 miles out of Townsend on a private mountain. Each cabin is handcrafted and filled with antiques and handmade quilts. Each has its own private mountain view, hot tub jucuzzi and wood burning fireplace. I like to call it roughing it easy.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Weather you spend your day hiking the mountains, touring Cades Cove , swimming, fishing and tubing in the Little River or maybe taking in Dollywood, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg you will have a great relaxing cozy cabin to welcome you home. It is the best of both worlds. These cabin are not your usual cookie cutter cabins. Each one has taken on its own personality as it was being built. Sometimes it was the view that made us build it in that certain place like Wind Rider Lodge that sits at the highest part of the mountain. When you sit out on the wrap a round porch you may be looking down and watching the Redtail Hawks teaching their young to fly or just enjoy looking out over the panoramic mountain view of the Smokies and listening to the birds singing. Moonshine Ridge is so cozy and warm like a soft summer breeze. It just seems to soothe the soul with its handmade quilts and wood burning fireplace. It gets its name not from the moonshine that was once abundant around here but from the way the big old full moon shines down on it and bathes it with soft moonlight. Last but not lease is Cherokee Breeze, it sits out on the point of my mountain so it is totally secluded and has awesome mountain views from both porches. You can sit in the large hot tub and enjoy the view til the cows come home and no one will bother you. I named it Cherokee because all the Indian artifacts hanging on the walls came from the Cherokee Reservation in North Carolina and if you open the doors there is always a soft breeze blowing through. So each cabin does have its own personality weather is the view, its seclusion or the coziness of it each one is unique in itself.
