About Rob and Dawn Bailes

I, Dawn, am a 3rd grade school teacher. My husband, Rob, is a residential contractor. He built Fernwood and Evergreen several years ago. We enjoy maintaining our cabins in a way that meets our own high standards!

Why Rob and Dawn Bailes chose East

You will love Fernwood and Evergreen because they are convenient to the heart of Townsend yet they are secluded. They are also really clean and well stocked! Plus...we live close by and are on call for any issue that may arise.

What makes this cabin unique

The road to our cabins is beautiful! It looks like you are traveling through parts of Cades Cove. But, they are only 7 tenths of a mile down the way....a great way to experience Townsend!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Just a lovely quiet space to unwind and enjoy the woods. The screen porch was a great place to have a cup of coffee even when it rained. The owners were so accommodating. We will definitely be back.

An enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and had all the amenities that we needed. It was conveniently located near the Townsend Visitor's Center, the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Museum, the Railroad Museum, a good grocery store (an IGA), and a lot of small businesses that were oriented to making our stay enjoyable. The park was only 10 minutes from the cabin as well.

Secluded relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Fernwood Cabin was as described and more, making for a very comfortable, relaxing vacation. The king bed was very comfortable and the jetted tub very convenient in the king bedroom. The screened in back porch was perfect for breakfast while listening to the birds and enjoying the breeze as the wind blew through the forest. The cabin was very roomy, a good distance away from the highway, surrounded by private woods, and was very quiet, yet there were neighbors close enough for comfort and the location was just minutes away from Townsend and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Would definitely recommend this cabin and would stay there again.

Hiker's Reunion(The Homesteaders)

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little retreat in the woods! It was close enough to take the "new" little hikers to surrounding beginner trails. The porch and swing was one our favorite things about the cabin. The only suggestion would be a baby gate for the stairs. Perfect location and the cabin was stocked with all the amenities needed.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Fernwood! We will definitely consider your suggestion for a baby gate.... Thank you for taking the time to give us such a wonderful review. Hope so see you again next year!
