    We loved this cabin. The location was about 5 miles from Cade's Cove which was a major attraction that we wanted to go through. The steam shower was amazing. Everyone loved it. The kitchen was big and had a dish washer. We didn't cook while we were there but they had everything we would have needed. There was a TV for everyone and space for everyone as well. The only issue we had was we couldn't find the dumpster for the trash so we took our bag of trash with us. No big deal. We loved this place and look forward to coming back for a longer stay in the future.

    This is a truly charming cabin, with its own history, in a lovely community. The community is nestled in among a natural environment, so the trees and plants contribute to the natural feeling. It's also on the Townsend side of the mountain, so there was almost no traffic. We were close enough to restaurants in Townsend, but the owner has provided excellent cookware, so we didn't have to eat out for every meal.

    Now--keeping in mind that this lovely cabin was once two original rustic cabins, and that spring was reluctant to show up in the Smoky Mountains, there was only one area of the cabin that wasn't as warm as we'd have liked, and that was the sitting area that had been the front porch on one of the original cabins. It's enclosed, and it has a heater, and the windows all around made it our favorite place to relax, despite the chill. The rest of the house stayed very comfortably warm. The front living room was super nice, lots of comfy seating, but we love windows.

    There is one caveat, and that is the stairs to the upstairs bedroom. Each stair is standard depth, but each lip extends maybe one to two inches over the one below it, making it feel more shallow, particularly going down. The staircase is well lit with motion-sensors and has its own light switch, but if someone in your party has difficulty with stairs, consider giving them the first-floor bedroom.

    Overall, this was an excellent stay, but let me add an extra bonus for having great communication from the owners.

    We absolutely loved the cabin & location. We thought everything was perfect and we can’t wait for the next time we can all get together so we can stay here again. I truly did not want to leave.
