  • Nice Change from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge


    Overall we enjoyed our stay. Being on the top floor would be a problem for some people with mobility problems. The place was clean and very functional. We didn't cook while there, but a little better stocking of kitchen utensils would be helpful. It was nice to be right beside the river and there was a great breakfast place just 1/2 mile down the road. Check-in was different from what we are used to. It required a call to the property manager for the door code and some other info. I left something of value at the apartment and messaged the property manager. But I got no response. So I am just out of $103 for that item. So overall we did enjoy our stay and it was nice to be able to go places without having so much traffic to deal with.

  • Convenient and Quaint


    Cozy little place nestled by a small river, quiet and relaxing. Cades Cove is just minutes away and if you are going to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge they're just a short drive away

  • Convenient location


    Overall we enjoyed our stay. Close to things to do in and around Townsend. Clean and comfortable. The only issue would affect light sleepers. The A/C unit in the bedroom in our unit was noisy. With the A/C unit off, traffic noise gets into the bedroom when traffic builds in the morning.
