Townsend cabin description

Very private 'real' log cabin on 28 acre mountain top shared with 5 other cabins. Sit on the covered front porch in one of the rocking chairs with a view of the 'Great Smoky Mountain National Park' in front of you. We are only 15 min. from Cades Cove and 3 miles from the entrance to the national park.

Our authentic log cabin has a combined living/dining space with large stone wood burning fireplace where you can enjoy cold winter nights in front of the crackling fire. This is also where you can watch cable TV or movies on the DVD player. There is a large loft overlooking this area where you will also find 2 double beds and a Fussball table. The downstairs master bedroom has a queen bed and large closet and dresser. If you don’t want to pack a lot, we have a washer and dryer for your convenience. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything except food and all linens, towels and paper products are furnished. The porch wraps around 3 sides offering a front porch complete with rocking chairs and a beautiful mountain view, the side porch has complete privacy with lounge chairs for sunbathing and the large back deck has a hot tub and charcoal grill for a perfect evening out.

R & R Retreat is the last cabin on the mountain top and all the cabins are secluded. You are just a short drive from the shopping in Pigeon Forge, Dollywood or the sights of Gatlinburg without the crowds or neighbors at night. Several good resturants are within a mile or two if you choose not to dine in. You are within 2 miles of great tubbing, fishing, hiking, biking trail, swimming in the 'Little River' and horseback riding.

The Townsend community is what Pigeon Forge was 30 years ago, uncrowded, quiet and peaceful.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2001

                          About the owner: We were born and raised in East Tennessee and have traveled a lot of the world, but we have to say that these old Appalachian Mountains are as beautiful as anywhere we've been. It's hard to beat the peace, quiet and nature of the quiet side of the Smokies in Townsend.

                          Why the Owner Chose Townsend:
                          Our family has been coming to the Smoky Mountains since the 1950's and have always enjoyed the unspoiled nature of the Smoky Mountains. There are 4 distinct seasons with mild winters and lots of outdoor activities year 'round. The area history and culture is very interesting and if you're a nature lover, you'll be in heaven. We are blessed with an abundance of wild critters that roam the woods and the lakes and rivers are full of fish. The valley is three miles long with the Little River flowing through offering tubing in the summer. The river is stocked with trout for some great fishing and you can even put your own kayak in and float the Little River. There are plenty of trails for every level of hiking or just a quiet walk in the woods. Some trails are even handicap accessible. It’s a great place to enjoy nature and the beauty of the area without the crowds in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, however, these towns are close enough to visit on day trips. Head to Galtinburg for shopping dining, Aquarium of the Smokies and skiing at Obergatlinburg in the winter. Pigeon Forge is home of Dollywood, lots of music theaters and other entertainment as well as great restaurants and outlet malls.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          R&R Retreat is located on 28 acres with only 6 cabins including ours and no drive-by traffic, yet we are very close to the main highway and all the amenities in Townsend.Being at the end of the road, we offer complete privacy as we are situated on 2 heavily wooded acres. Guests can roam the 28 acres and beyond, although there are no marked trails, the park has many trail heads nearby. Guests can bring or rent bicycles in town to ride the 3 mile long valley where there are paved bicycle paths on both sides of the road. Mother Nature at her finest is right here in the quiet side of the Smoky Mountains. You can go fishing, swimming and tubing the river, hiking and backpacking the trails of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, visit old homesteads and look for wild animals while touring Cades Cove and the park or just relax and breathe in the fresh mountain air. If you need a vacation, then this is place you want to be. Whether you like it wild or mild, make your next vacation a stay at R&R Retreat and enjoy East Tennessee and the Great Smoky Mountains.
