About Laura

Townsend is one of our favorite places to hang out. The bike trails, fishing, and kayaking are our favorite hobbies. There's nothing like that mountain air and sound of the river rushing over the rocks. We live a short distance away from Cove Stream Cabin. We hope you enjoy the little cabin as much as we do!

Cozy Cabin in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is just right for 1 or 2 people. The porch overlooking the river is a very relaxing place to sit. We saw a blue heron go after a fish, which was a real treat! The cabin has what you need & we liked the décor. Be aware there is no Wi-Fi & the shower is small. Other than that, it was great. Enjoyed the whirlpool tub after a long hike & the gas fireplace took off the chill & provided atmosphere.

I love this cabin, quiet, peaceful with the constant sound of calming water.

I love this cabin, quiet, peaceful with the constant sound of calming water.

Even in the rain while sitting on the back porch was a simple pleasure as the tin roof perfectly amplified the drops.

Surrounding mountains with trees in color added to the feel of nature.

The home was well furnished in earth tones and wood workings.

Thanks so much for giving us the opportunity to stay.

Loved the location and sitting on the backporch watching the river

  • 5 of 5

Bed does need some attention as the mattress is very hard but other than that we loved the cabin and the location. It was very nice weather the entire time we were there and we loved sitting outside enjoying the river and the tubers going by. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks

Great location on the river. The sounds and sights of the water was so relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is ideal for a couple looking for a quiet getaway on the river. The porch is an excellent viewing spot for river activity and to take in the sights and the sounds of the water. The kitchen is rather small and sparsely furnished, and the broiler in the oven does not work. We would suggest that you consider making improvements to the bed. The mattress was extremely firm, a topper might improve it somewhat, but it was very uncomfortable. We would consider renting this cabin again if the bed were upgraded. Other than that the weekend was very relaxing, quiet and serene.
