Are you looking for the perfect summer getaway? Picture yourself in a cozy appalachian style log cabin. The soft breeze blowing through the trees while you're swinging on the porch swing sipping iced tea. The view from the porch and windows is of evergreens, hardwoods and the enchanting smoky mountains. You have all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay. You have a jacuzzi, fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bath w/shower, washer & dryer, central heat & air and weber charcoal grill. You can even nap in the hammock nestled in the trees. The 'tree house' cabin has earned its name because it feels like you are literally in a treehouse when you are rocking or swinging on the covered porch. You are surrounded by nature at its finest. Come for a visit and see why so many of our guests return time and time again.
1 bathroom with a tub/shower unit, vanity w/sink and storage
I and my daughter do all our own cleaning. I guess we just don't trust anyone else! Our goal is to have the cabin as clean as we'd want one to be if we were traveling. There are no cleaning fees. We do appreciate guests leaving the kitchen as it was (dishes washed), and the futon put back in place if used, but otherwise we don't expect anything else to be done. We have guests come for return visits specifically because they said it was so clean....moreless

We are located in a peaceful valley which has lovely farms and country residences. Guests comment how they enjoy our quiet and serene location. The small town of Townsend is just 3 miles away. It is one of the entrances to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. We have an excellent visitor's center where you can acquire information concerning the Natl. Park and also souvenirs and local appalachian products (honey, cornmeal, sorghum molasses, apple butter etc.). One of the most popular destinations in the Natl. Park is just 7 miles from Townsend. It is Cades Cove, which is a lovely cove surrounded by mountains. There is an 11 mile loop road that you can drive, or on certain mornings it is open for joggers and bicyclists only. Historic homes, churches, a water-powered mill and other vintage farm buildings have been preserved and are open for visitors to walk through. It is a great place to have a picnic, fly a kite, or enjoy one of the many hikes such as the one to Abrams Falls. There are many beautiful waterfalls in the area. The hike to Gregory Bald in June will bring you to one of the largest stands of wild flame azaleas anywhere. People come from all over the world to see acres of glorious colorful blossoms. You can also enjoy a drive through the 'heart' of the smokies by taking scenic Little River road to Newfound Gap Road and on to Cherokee, North Carolina. While on this drive you can swing up to Clingman's Dome and then hike the 1/2 mile up to the viewing tower. The 'smoke' rising from the glorious mountains is ethereal. A sight to behold. If you want to go further you can drive to Cataloochee and watch the regal elk. Another sight to behold! Returning to Townsend you can also visit the Heritage Center. It is an appalachian museum with indoor displays and historic buildings to tour outdoors. They also have a covered amphitheatre where live concerts are given from spring through the fall. Townsend is also known for its hiking/biking trails that go for miles through town. The beautiful Little River which flows through town is a popular spot for inner-tubing. Other out of the way places are great for fly fishing and catching trout. The extremely interesting tour at Tuckaleechee Caverns is just 1 1/2 miles from our Treehouse cabin. Also, Davy Crockett stables which has rental horses and a ride in the foothills is only about a mile away. The ever popular theme park, Dollywood, is just 30 minutes away. I especially enjoy the 'Festival of Nations' at Dollywood every spring. Performers, young and old, come from all over the world. All the ethnic food is a real plus too! Dolly's 'Dixie Stampede' dinner theatre is a memorable activity in nearby Pigeon Forge also. As for shopping, there are a number of outlet malls in Pigeon Forge. Plus there is a craftsman's community outside of Gatlinburg where you can find anything from pottery, quilts, wood carvings, stained glass, even quail egg art! In nearby Maryville, about 20 miles the other direction from Townsend, you can find the Foothills Mall with Belk's, J.C. Penneys, Sears and Goody's as its anchor stores. There is also a new 12 theatre Cinemax there. To summarize I would have to say that our Treehouse cabin is in an excellent location for doing beautiful 'natural' activities, plus great 'touristy' things! Or perhaps the best choice of all may be to just relax in the porch swing or the hammock at the cabin and have fun doing nothing at all!!
About the owner: I'm a country 'girl' who grew up on a dairy farm in northwest Wisconsin. I have lived here in Townsend for 34 years now. I live on the 8 1/2 acres where the Treehouse cabin is located. I also have a log cabin which I love.
Why the Owner Chose Townsend: I am blessed to own one of the most beautiful tracts of land in Blount County. It is also very close to the Smoky Mtn. Natl. Park. I can ride my horse right into the Smokies. There are three trailheads under 3 miles from the Treehouse cabin. Guests love to hike in the Park, or even just go for walks here in our valley which is called Dry Valley.
