About the property

Beautiful rustic cabin in a private wooded parklike setting

Wildwood is located in the beautiful mountain community of Laurel Valley in Townsend TN. Townsend is a gateway community to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, at the Cades Cove Entrance.

As you make your way down the peaceful drive, dodging a bit of wild life as you go, you'll know you've come to a special place. Once inside, you'll notice that everything is just a cut above what you expected. From the leather furniture and primitive decor to the high thread-count linens and luxurious towels, and right down to all the little things you'll find that will make this experience one you'll always remember.

It is our goal to create a tranquil and serene setting that will help our guests unplug and enjoy the spirit of the mountains and the wildlife that lives here. Don't worry...we have provided you with cable TV, telephone and Wi-Fi just in case you can't totally give up the gadgets. Most cell phones have great reception, especially on Verizon.

The cabin is decorated in a primitive theme to match the beautiful interior of hand hewn logs. Nothing says mountain cabin, like a warm evening by at the fireplace; so, when in season, enjoy your evenings by the warmth of the stacked stone, wood burning fireplace.

The beautiful kitchen has all the comforts of home with everything you might need to cook full meals, or nuke a burger.

If you love to grill out, we have furnished you with a gas grill to handle those steaks you'll find at the local IGA!

The huge indoor jetted tub will pamper you before slipping into the King Size bed for a great night's sleep. Luxury linens and towels, pillows, and blankets are all supplied. There is a washer and dryer in the cabin for your convenience.

Wildwood has a parklike setting complete with a picnic table and abundant wildlife.

The setting is private and you can enjoy your visitors from the covered porch complete with rockers and swing, or stroll downstairs for an evening in the screened porch.

Wildwood is VERY motorcycle friendly. The access is easy and paved. There is plenty of flat parking. If you are a rider, you'll find Townsend to be a Paradise! Every year thousands visit this area to take advantage of these mountains and the day trips they offer and Wildwood offers a terrific location to take advantage of these trips.

From Wildwood you are only a few short miles from the Cades Cove entrance to the National Park. While staying here, the Park is your play ground.

No matter what you like to do during the day, we hope you will enjoy retreating to the peace and warmth of the cabin at day's end.

It is our hope that you will come to consider Wildwood YOUR home away in the Great Smoky Mountains!

We hope to see you soon.

About Cyndie Cornelius

We arrived in the Smokies over ten years ago. Our first trip was a fly fishing adventure. Until then, my only Smokies adventure had been to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.

Townsend proved to be an oasis in the mountains. The setting is serene and peaceful and without the trappings of the more recognized areas. Trout were not the only things hooked that weekend... we were as well. Just one year later, we arrived in Townsend to live full time. It took a year to make it happen, but we were determined to make the Smokies our home.

We surely can not imagine living anywhere else. Waking every morning to the sunrise over the mountains, and the sights and sounds of the birds and other wild life living in the area, is an unbelievable experience.

We have in the years since our arrival established a Real Estate Sales Firm appropriately named, Why the Smokies.

It has been our objective to educate others about the wonders of living here in this beautiful place and if the fit is right, to help them with their goal to move here on a permanent basis, or to find their perfect getaway home here in the Smokies.

Since that time, we have purchased four additional cabins and have done our best to create an environment that will hopefully give our guests a place to call home when they come to visit.

The number of returning guests has grown greatly in the past year.

If your dates of arrival are not available for this cabin, try our other cabins

Smoke Rise, The Cove and Rocky Hollow, also on VRBO. .

Cyndie Cornelius purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Cyndie Cornelius chose Townsend

When choosing Wildwood, we considered the same qualities that have meant so much to our guests in our other cabins. It is the parklike, private setting that was the initial draw for us. It is a well maintained cabin that has the warm interior of hewn log and is built by the same builder as our other cabins. This one has a separate bedroom and is just a little different in floor plans as our others. We knew that we could create the feel of the mountains.

In addition, the access is easy and paved and for our motorcycle friends, that is critical.

What makes this cabin unique

It is our mission to maintain our cabins in a manner that will never disappoint. We are VERY local owners and we keep a watchful eye over our retreats.

We want you to consider 'Smoke Rise' , The Cove' Rocky Hollow or" Wildwood".... your home away from home in the Great Smoky Mountains!!

We loved the "Wildwood" cabin in Townsend. The location, surroundings, and the beautiful cabin itself went beyond our expectations! I already have family and friends that have requested that I share booking information, after seeing our photos.

Perfect cabin on the ‘Quiet Side of the Smokies’

  • 5 of 5

We chose this cabin for a short last-minute trip based on the reviews and photos, and we were not disappointed. The furnishings are of great quality, the bed is super-comfortable, and the entire cabin is clean, warm and inviting. While we were unable to enjoy the outside spaces due to freezing temps, we have no doubt that the porches and the surrounding areas are very pleasant places to spend time.

Townsend Tennessee is a gateway community to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Visitors to Townsend enjoy the Peaceful Side of the Smokies.

Townsend is rich in wildlife. Most visitors come with hopes of seeing the ever popular Black Bear that inhabit the park and surrounding areas.

Wildwood is nestled into the woods and private. There is an abundance of wildlife including Black Bear, Deer, Wild Turkey, Hawks and Owls to name a few.

You can spend your days critter watching at the cabin or in Cades Cove. You can hike the trails, ride your bike, take photos, fly fish or tube down the Little River. There are a number of tubing providers on the river. Most outfitters will hook you up with a tube and river access. You can float down the river for an hour or so. They will pick you and your tube up and take you back to the starting point, only to do it all again. WOW! what a way to cool off in the hot summer days.

If you ride a motorcycle you will find that Townsend is the BOMB!

There are dozens of day rides from Townsend.

One of our favorites is to leave Townsend through the Park and ride to Gatlinburg. Take a right at Sugarland's Visitors Center and you can ride to Cherokee N.C. Enjoy lunch and head back...time to burn. Don't forget to stop at Newfound Gap and Clingman's Dome and DON'T leave without your camera.

The Foothills Parkway is closer to home. Only a couple of miles from Townsend, this ride takes you across the ridge of the mountain with spectacular overlooks to Chilhowee Lake. From the end of the Parkway, you can take a left and ride the Tail of the Dragon! 318 curves in 11 miles. Not for the faint of heart. If you are not up to that ride, take a right at the end of the Parkway and visit the 129 Harley shop.

A longer ride from that location will take you to Tellico Plains and the Tellico Grains bakery. A great place to enjoy a meal before heading back to Townsend or across the Cherohala Skyway! I could spend hours talking about this so just ask when you call....we may go with you!

Our Cabin is Motorcycle Friendly! Easy access and paved all the way!

A short 30 minute ride from Townsend will land you in Pigeon Forge. A great place to visit, but NOT the quiet side by any stretch of the imagination. It is the center for entertainment and shopping in the Smokies. Home to the Tanger outlets, countless entertainment spots, restaurants and the ever popular Dollywood!

Come join us in Townsend! On the Peaceful side of the Smokies.

We will look forward to hearing from you.
