About the property

Luxury Couples Mountain Retreat

Time Well Wasted is a woodland retreat that sits on over three private acres of parklike setting with beautiful hardwoods, moss covered rocks, and wildlife galore! The owners have brought the outside indoors with a wall of glass that will greet you as you enter the cabin. This feature looks out into this beautiful setting and can be enjoyed no matter what the weather.

This cabin is set up for the more mature guest who is looking to retreat into nature and enjoy the peace and quiet of these beautiful mountains. It is large enough to enjoy for extended visits, and cozy enough to enjoy as a weekend get away.

This couples cabin has two large bedrooms and two full baths along with a spacious great room complete with a stacked stone wood burning fireplace. Enjoy the evenings in the great outdoors with the sounds of nature at your side on the deck just off of the living room.

A well equipped kitchen will provide you with everything you need to cook your meals at home inside or outside on the gas grill. New stainless steel appliances make this wonderful kitchen sparkle.

This cabin has easy access and is located in the gated community of Laurel Valley in Townsend.

Townsend is located at the Cades Cove entry to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

It has been deemed the Peaceful Side of the Smokies, and lives up to the nick-name.

The access to this cabin is easy with paved roadways all the way. Plenty of parking and motorcycle friendly.

Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations. We were evacuated from home due to Hurricane Irma and decided to visit TN since we love vacationing there each year. Cyndie, the cabin representative, was amazing to work with throughout the process. We booked late at night but she still responded the same night, and within minutes, our reservation was confirmed. That was such a relief! She was very responsive to my follow up questions and very friendly! Thank you Cyndie!

The cabin is gorgeous and much larger feeling than the square footage indicates. The appliances and furnishings are high end. We walked in after a very long drive and instantly felt calm and relaxed. This cabin is secluded in a way that makes you feel like no one else is around but in reality, it is a quick and easy drive to get to restaurants, shopping, sight seeing, etc. We had never been to Townsend but we will be back! It is a wonderful, friendly and welcoming area.

The beds and pillows were amazing. There were four of us in our group and we all slept very well. One of the best things about this cabin was the jetted tub. Oh my goodness! I have never seen such a large bathtub. It is great because it is one of the master bedrooms. It was so relaxing, sipping wine and watching my favorite television show.

The thoughtful touches also went a long way. Flashlights, games, sewing kits (for emergencies), coffee, cream, sugar / sugar substitutes and more were all available when we walked through the door. The labels on the many light switches were great as well. (There are a lot of them as the cabin has tons of lighting and fans)!

For anyone that wants to get away from the stresses of life or just wants a great place to stay, I would HIGHLY recommend this cabin and Cyndie!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. This cabin is new on our rental program and we love it! The owners have worked so hard to transform this cabin into the Oasis that it is. Time Well Wasted is our first two bedroom cabin and we are proud to host it. Thank you for your business. Cyndie

What a relaxing place to go!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the town of Townsend. We visited to celebrate our 20th anniversary as we visited Gatlinburg for our honeymoon and wanted to return to the same general area to commemorate. We were so impressed with this lovely home and the surrounding nature that we ended up not even visiting the attractions that were close by. We also are now considering selling our home and building a new house with the same layout as Time Well Wasted! It is such a great layout and was so very well maintained. The reservations were super easily made and any information we needed was provided rapidly via email messages or was found in the home when we arrived.

This place definitely lives up to its name!! Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing visit!!

A great weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Time Well Wasted! It was very clean and spacious space for us and our two kids. It’s beautifully decorated and very comfortable from the couch to the beds and pillows. The homeowners were very easy to work with and provide a great home. We only had time for a long weekend, but we’re already talking about coming back!
