Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. The cabin is clean and well stocked. There is even a crock pot. It seems very secluded even though there are neighbors. We did hear some noise on Saturday from home owners mowing and that sort of thing but it was not bad. The little river walk with chairs was terrific. We loved having the horses right outside our door. They were friendly and loved the apples and carrots we had for them. Richard was a great host and checked in on us to see if we needed anything. We tubed at the River Rat. We were able to get out and take a break at the cabin. We ate all of our meals at the cabin. We did have a fried apple pie at the Apple Barn but they were no where as good as my Mother in Law's! We love Townsend and Cade's Cove so this was a perfect place for us. Would love to come back.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location! It was nice to not be in the hustle of Pigeon Forge and other big areas but to be close enough to enjoy. The river was cold but fun and entertaining

I will book again if available!

  • 5 of 5

We have loved our time here. As others have mentioned, there are neighbors but the trees around you make it very private. The landing on the river is perfect to lay out, fish, or just sit. We cooked every day and grilled several times. We used the firepit, hot tub, and swing. The owner was super, answering all of my questions and calling and checking on us a few times during the week. The water in front would be good for small children and deeper water to swim was not far. I will check availability on our next Mountain trip.

Fish in Hole cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the cabin on Little River. It was clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and feeding the horses. My grandson had fun in the river wading as it was too low to swim or tub due to the dry conditions. We also had fun walking to the swinging bridge and into town. Richard Carnes was very helpful in recommending places to eat and was also available for any needs we had. He was also good to talk with when making our reservations. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Vacation Location

  • 4 of 5

The Fishin' Hole Cabin was very nice. It was very clean and it was centrally located. The owner Richard Carnes, was absolutely outstanding in his customer service. He was very quick with his responses upon my original inquiry through this sight and he made himself readily available at all times. He still maintains the high standards of customer service. A rare thing these days. Can't say enough about his willingness to be available and answer questions. He came to mow the grass at the property while we were there and he was as nice in person as he was on the phone. Cabin was well equipped and we wanted for nothing. Location on the river was great for my teenagers, especially those that liked to fish. We were there early in the year so it was too cold yet to swim, but I imagine this is an even better property in the warm weather.

My only drawback to this property is that it is not remote. From the pictures posted on this site it appears that it has much more property than it does. It is actually located in a residential neighborhood and the houses are all very close together. It is not remote and privacy is an issue. For this reason I would not recommend it for a romantic getaway.

However, that said, that is my one and only drawback to this property. It really is lovely and it fit our family's needs wonderfully. It is located less than 10 minutes from the entrance to the Smokey Mountain National Park and maybe 20 minutes from Pigeon Forge. It really is centrally located in Townsend and the River Rat Inner Tube Rental facility is literally just up the road. Again, perfect for summer time rental. Just know that when renting this property you are in a neighborhood. It is a quiet neighborhood and the neighbors whom we did have contact with were all very nice. We felt very safe. It is just not a remote cabin location, so know that up front.

Otherwise, again, Mr. Carnes could not be more attentive or acommodating. He answered every question we had. Offered much information about the area, including, great fishing tips for the river! The lock box and access to the cabin was seamless and everything went very smoothly. Cabin has a great porch swing, wonderful and well maintained jacuzzi, and a table with 4 chairs on the deck as well. We spent a great deal of time out there. It also has a fire pit with benches around it off the deck in the front yard facing the river. Very peaceful ambiance. The kids loved it!!

Nice Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The "Fishin Hole Cabin" was nice. Well furnished with 3 big bedrooms and two baths. Full kitchen and living room. The Hot Tub was a Great enjoyment. We loved the access and view of the Little River. The cabin was nice and peaceful. My favorite part of the cabin was feeding the horses in the back yard. My only complaints are that the living room/kitchen floor was dirty when we arrived and the cabin smelled like it had not been opened in several months. Things were dusty which made my allergies flare up.
