Sunrise cabin in Laurel Valley
Beautiful property and cabin. Has everything you could possibly need. Fireplace, spa tub, very comfortable king bed. Would definitely return.
We hope to visit again, soon
First, the owner was very helpful and communicated well. The property was exactly as promised and more, perfect for us! It was very trouble free and relaxing to stay at Smoke Rise, we want to go back as often as we can.
The cabin was even better than photographs, sparkling clean , bed extra comfortable.. there was nothing below excellent during our entire stay. It was the perfect getaway for my husband and I. We will definitely return again!!
Townsend Tennessee is a gateway community to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Visitors to Townsend enjoy the Peaceful Side of the Smokies.
Townsend is rich in wildlife. Most visitors come with hopes of seeing the ever popular Black Bear that inhabit the park and surrounding areas.
Smoke Rise is nestled into the woods and private. If you walk down the hill behind the cabin you will find a wonderful creek, moss covered rocks, and a nature path that follows the stream. Here too, you can anticipate the possibility of a critter sighting. There is an abundance of wildlife including Black Bear, Deer, Wild Turkey, Hawks and Owls to name a few. Our property backs to parkland and the results are an abundance of surprises.
You can spend your days critter watching at the cabin or in Cades Cove. You can hike the trails, ride your bike, take photos, fly fish or tube down the Little River. There are a number of tubing providers on the river. Most outfitters will hook you up with a tube and river access. You can float down the river for an hour or so. They will pick you and your tube up and take you back to the starting point, only to do it all again. WOW! what a way to cool off in the hot summer days.
If you ride a motorcycle you will find that Townsend is the BOMB!
There are dozens of day rides from Townsend.
One of our favorites is to leave Townsend through the Park and ride to Gatlinburg. Take a right at Sugarland's Visitors Center and you can ride to Cherokee N.C. Enjoy lunch and head back...time to burn. Don't forget to stop at Newfound Gap and Clingman's Dome and DON'T leave without your camera.
The Foothills Parkway is closer to home. Only a couple of miles from Townsend, this ride takes you across the ridge of the mountain with spectacular overlooks to Chilhowee Lake. From the end of the Parkway, you can take a left and ride the Tail of the Dragon! 318 curves in 11 miles. Not for the faint of heart. If you are not up to that ride, take a right at the end of the Parkway and visit the 129 Harley shop.
A longer ride from that location will take you to Tellico Plains and the Tellico Grains bakery. A great place to enjoy a meal before heading back to Townsend or across the Cherohala Skyway! I could spend hours talking about this so just ask when you call....we may go with you!
Our Cabin is Motorcycle Friendly! Easy access and paved all the way!
A short 30 minute ride from Townsend will land you in Pigeon Forge. A great place to visit, but NOT the quiet side by any stretch of the imagination. It is the center for entertainment and shopping in the Smokies. Home to the Tanger outlets, countless entertainment spots, restaurants and the ever popular Dollywood!
Come join us in Townsend! On the Peaceful side of the Smokies.
We will look forward to hearing from you.
About Cyndie Cornelius
We arrived in the Smokies over ten years ago. Our first trip was a fly fishing adventure. Until then, my only Smokies adventure had been to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Townsend proved to be an oasis in the mountains. The setting is serene and peaceful and without the trappings of the more recognized areas. Trout were not the only things hooked that weekend... we were as well. Just one year later, we arrived in Townsend to live full time. It took a year to make it happen, but we were determined to make the Smokies our home. We surely can not imagine living anywhere else. Waking every morning to the sunrise over the mountains, and the sights and sounds of the birds and other wild life living in the area, is an unbelievable experience. We have in the years since our arrival, started a Real Estate Sales Firm appropriately named, Why the Smokies. It has been our objective to educate others about the wonders of living here in this beautiful place and if the fit is right, to help them with their goal to move here on a permanent basis, or to find their perfect getaway home here in the Smokies. Since that time, we have purchased three additional cabins and have made the same commitment to our guests that we have strived to provide to those who have visited Smoke Rise. If Smoke Rise is NOT available for the dates you are interested in, check out The Cove, Rocky Hollow and Wildwood. All our cabins are available through VRBO.
Cyndie Cornelius purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Cyndie Cornelius chose Townsend
As you would expect, my career takes me in and out of hundreds of cabins, both for sale and for rent. We knew that if we ever purchased a cabin, we would likely handle the rental ourselves, so we wanted something close by. We also knew we wanted a cabin that we could decorate in a way that would lend itself to what we like and enjoy. The hewn log interior was warm and the stacked stone REAL wood burning fireplace was exactly what we enjoy. Next the location backs to Park land. During visits there, we have seen every critter we go to Cades Cove to see! It is a park-like, wooded, private setting with a creek that runs through it...that was perfect for us. The last requirement was that it had flat paved access and space to park a motorcycle hauler if needed. We ride, and know that finding appropriate accommodations for your bikes can be difficult. This is a breeze. We keep our own bikes in a small shed on the property as well. It needed some TLC but had great bones. It was a natural for us to choose.
What makes this Cabin unique
It is our mission to maintain our cabins in a manner that will never disappoint. We are VERY local owners and we keep a watchful eye over our retreats. We have stayed in them a number of times ourselves, just to be sure we have not forgotten anything that guests may need to make their stay perfect. We want you to consider 'Smoke Rise' or 'The Cove', "WIldwood" and "Rocky Hollow", your home away from home in the Great Smoky Mountains!!
