About the property

One loft bedroom with fantastic view of mountains.

A charming and beautiful cabin with real rustic split log construction with sweet surroundings! Has a very beautiful view. cabin is situated in a log cabin community, but don't worry, it is very private. It has its own large driveway and is located off of the road which gives it some much disired peace and quet. The cabin has a large covered deck with a swing, sitting area, two rocking chairs, gas grill, and private hot tub.

Can't describe how beautiful the view is from here!!!

Inside the cabin, you will find a loft bedroom with a very comfortable king size bed and half bath, dresser and armoire.

Downstairs there is a nice living room with a sixty- inch flat screen TV, DVD player, free WIFI, Comcast cable. The cabin has central heat and air conditioning and is very well insulated for warmth on those cold days and nights in the winter. And to keep you cool on those hot days and nights in the summer. There is a gas burning rock fireplace as well.

The kitchen is fully equipped to cook a meal for your loved one including a dishwasher , range, microwave, toaster, refrigerator, coffee pot and more.

The full bathroom downstairs has a tub/shower combo and washer and dryer. There is also a huge whirlpool jetted tub for a late night soak !! Also has a full size pool table.

Windancer is located in a log cabin community which gives you accessibility to the seasonal swimming pool and covered pavillion.

Townsend offers many wonderful things to do. Here you can go swimming, biking, tubing, fishing, horse back riding, take beautiful photographs of awesome mountain and river views.

Townsend also has art and craft stores and several great restaurants and Churches. Wedding and events Venue is located about an eighth of a mile from cabin.

Cabin is about 5 - 10 minutes from the Great Smoky Mountain National park and Cades Cove entrance. And about 30 to 40 minutes through the beautiful mountains to get to Pigeon

Forge and Gatlinburg.

Gorgeous view and we loved he privacy it offered!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place and close to great food and antique shopping that we enjoy doing. The park is close by but we were still away from the madness. The view is really amazing from the porch area... and the privacy and the peacefulness was great.

Beautiful, Peaceful, and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 nights. The inside and outside of the cabin are absolutely beautiful. It's located in a small town with a grocery and gas nearby. Gatlinburg and pigeon forge were about 35 min away but it was worth the drive to be away from everything. There was a cabin next door but we didn't hear anything at all our entire stay, barely knew it was there. The view was incredible and the hot tub was nice to sit in and stare out at the hills. Our electric went out the first day there and Alice took care of the problem immediately. A branch had fallen on the power line, but it was fixed in a couple of hours by maintenance. The only thing we had a complaint about was the satellite tv cutting in and out occasionally but it wasn't bad enough to get upset about. Booking the trip was easy and this cabin was 100% worth the money. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get away and have some alone time.

Amazing cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cabin. It was super clean and perfect for our 22nd Anniversary. The view that we woke up to each morning from the bed was breathtaking. The drive up is a bit steep, but we can’t wait to come back. This cabin is absolutely loved and the owners go above and beyond to make your stay perfect!!! Thank you for an amazing weekend!
