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!

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.

Tennessee Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Fernwood for a week to have a quiet retreat and explore the Great Smoky Mountain Natl Park this spring.

It was a truly wonderful week! Spring blossomed while we were there...we hiked, biked, went kayaking and fly fishing. All these were easily accessible from this location and we never had to go into Gaitlanberg or Pigeon Forge!!! Cades Cove is a must see...we biked the 11 mile loop and enjoyed it immensely, seeing deer, coyote and bobcat. Fernwood cabin was just what we needed. Great porches, front and back....whirlpool tub was great after a long day of activity and yet it was cool enough each evening to build a fire and read. No need to ever turn on the TV! We are so thankful that we came to this beautiful place and hope to return with our adult children and grandchildren someday. Dawn was a terrific owner giving us great information before we even arrived to make the most of our time in Tennessee! All in all a wonderful blessing!

Fernwood Cabin

  • 4 of 5

My wife & I stayed in Fernwood for 4 nights as a get away celebrating her birthday. We purposely chose to stay in Townsend because its less populated with traffic.,noise, people. The cabin was very clean, bed downstairs that we slept on was very comfortable. Everything we needed was furnished as we took our own breakfast food & drinks, going out for dinners. It was very relaxing with a fire going, no wifi so we read & watched TV.some but would have enjoyed a TV in bedroom. Overall ,very pleasant.

Wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Fernwood Cabins over Labor Day weekend 2015. We could not have had a better cabin. It was spacious,clean, quite, and comfortable. The cost was much less than staying in a hotel. Would highly recommend Fernwood cabins!!
