Why Peggy Steele chose Townsend

Spectacular views of the mountains, peaceful, quiet, serene atmosphere! There is so much culture in this area - even within our small town, there is music, art, adventure, and great food! At the same time, Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, and Knoxville are all close by.

What makes this Cabin unique

View of the mountains, and a full-size pool that is only 3.5 feet deep all around. Hot tub! Gas fireplace! Full-equipped kitchen! The cabin is rustic, and very comfortable with plenty of room to accommodate everyone, and bedrooms with their own private bath.
