This cozy, rustic cabin is nestled on the bank of the scenic Little River in quaint Townsend, TN. Just a short drive from Pigeon Forge, Cades Cove, and other attractions, this cabin combines the feeling of solemn remoteness with the convenience of local walking-distance amenities, including a grocery store, gas station, and restaurants. We are family friendly and welcome you to make a tradition out of bringing your family to Townsend each year, just like our family did when we were children!

Beautiful cabin, great kitchen, comfortable beds. Loved opening the windows and listening to the water. The chairs down by the water and around the fire pit were a great touch. Would come back again!
