- One big plus to the Rancher cabin is that it doesn't have a steep driveway. You've got the mountains surrounding you but the drive to the cabin from Hwy. 321 (not quite 3 miles) is paved and has no steep grades. The driveway is gravel but is straight and there is easy accessibility to the cabin. There is just a slight uphill grade as you get closer to it. Guests always comment on how quiet and peaceful it is and how they love the country setting. Another feature inside the cabin is that there are two futons that make into full size beds in the living room. ...moreless

The Rancher cabin is located in Dry Valley which lies at the base of the Rich Mountain range. Dry Valley is a lovely, peaceful area with farms and country residences. The Great Smoky Mtn. National Park is just minutes from the cabin. In fact, the primitive one-way Rich Mountain Road which comes out of Cades Cove is only about 3 miles away. The small town of Townsend, which is one of the entrances to the Natl. Park, is also just 3 miles away. Townsend offers a number of restaurants, gas stations, two grocery stores plus several smaller markets, and an automobile repair shop. It also has the Little River Railroad Museum, Heritage Center, craft shops, Horseback Riding Stables, Little River Heartland Wedding Chapel, Lily Barn (with acres of Day Lilies and flower walkways) and the Tuckaleechee Caverns. Townsend is also reknowned for its walking/biking trail which runs on both sides of the road for 4 miles toward the Park entrance. There are tunnels to go from one side to the other and the spectacular mountain and river views make using it a memorable experience. It is a fun and safe activity for families. There are also excellent concerts at the Heritage Center Amphitheater and Wood 'N Strings Dulcimer shop. Within 20 to 25 miles from the cabin are the towns of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. You can enjoy the famous Dollywood theme park, bumper boats, water parks, race cars, indoor sky-diving, mini-golf and a variety of gift and craft shops there. But the main attraction is the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains. There are miles of hiking trails and also auto tours where you can enjoy the pristine forests, mountain streams and waterfalls. The ever popular Cades Cove is just on the other side of the mountain behind the cabin (Rich Mountain). It has an 11 mile loop road that takes you past original log cabins, churches, barns and a water powered mill. It is a drive into the past, giving you a sense of what life was like in the mountains over 100 years ago. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is the most visited National Park in the United States and once you've been here you will understand why!
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I have lived in Townsend for 35 years and it is definitely home for me. I grew up on a dairy farm in northwest Wisconsin so I have always enjoyed living in the country. To live in an area as beautiful as the Smokies is a true blessing which I try to never take for granted!
Why the Owner Chose Townsend, TN, USA:
I purchased the Rancher cabin in 2007 but managed the renting of it before that. The acre it sits on adjoins my 7 1/2 acres so the location is perfect for me. I love that it has its own setting, yet is close for me to go clean it or show it to guests.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The trees surrounding the cabin are outstanding in the spring - blossoms abound! There is a huge redbud tree, weeping cherry and bradford pear trees. In the fall you have the beautiful autumn colors to enjoy and in the summer the vibrant and lush greens. I never tire of the views of Rich Mountain behind and the Chilhowee Mtn. Range in front of the cabin. Sitting on the front porch swing and watching the horses in the small pasture in front of the cabin is so relaxing!
