  • Mountain Rose Cabin


    Cabin is full of charm and character. We spent Christmas there and enjoyed it immensely. Very quiet, peaceful neighborhood in Townsend. We would definitely go back again.

  • Beautiful Historic Mountain Rose Cabin


    Loved our stay at Mountain Rose Cabin! It is in a beautiful location and stocked with everything you need for a quiet and cozy stay. From the moment we drove onto property and stepped inside the cabin was a wonderful experience. The smell of the wood burning fireplace instantly gives you that cabin feeling. The steam shower was definitely a pleasant surprise to have. The owners were very helpful and informative. Thanks so much for sharing your little peace of heaven with us! Will definitely book this property again!

  • Perfect


    Our stay couldn’t have been better! The cabin was perfect & lovely! I wanted something with character and history and this was the perfect place for both! It is finished so nicely while at the same time being as cozy as you could want. The logs are so solid and historic all while having heated tiles and a steam shower! Absolutely perfect! The owner was very responsive and so nice.

  • Great Cabin and location


    Really cool and unique property. Two rustic cabins merged together with a lot of nice modern amenities. Well stocked kitchen and a lot of nice amenities like coffee pods, local pumpkin butter and toiletries. Owner also came by at check in to blow off recently downed leaves and lives locally. Great location too - we live in Knoxville so more of a local getaway. Would definitely stay here again!
