Absolutely wonderful we stayed in the rooster perch for our honeymoon. The view was breathtaking. The owner was very polite and we got fresh eggs every morning from her chickens. The cabin was above what we were expecting. There is Direct tv and free internet. The owner was always willing to help with places to go see and places to... More

Our stay with Pioneer Cabins was absolutely wonderful. It was the best family vacation we've ever had. Every one was blown away with Spirit Wind, saying it exceeded their expectations. From the beautiful cabin, how CLEAN everything was, how cozy, and the view was spectacular. We had a wonderful time, and wished we could have stayed longer. In fact our... More

My wife and I both love Pioneer Cabins & Guest Farm. The cabins are well maintained and ready for a visit. We were able to quickly make meals in the kitchen with all the needed supplies provided including fresh eggs and produce from the host’s garden. The bed was extremely comfortable. There are nice views from the decks. We stayed... More

We stayed in the Rooster's Perch for 2 nights in October 2015. We loved the secluded setting, the farm animals and the hosts. The location is great - not far from the Smokies. Lots of aminals for the kids to look at and trails to explore. The cabins are simple but have everything we needed, including a hot tub. No... More

We stayed in the bunk cabin for five days with our three-year-old son. We not only enjoyed the beautiful Smokys nearby and all the attractive and inviting attractions in Townsend, but also the farm-life. Diane and Roger have put us up so welcomingly. Both offered excellent customer service and answered all questions and other inquiries. We relished on their fresh... More

We wanted to have a nice weekend away from the crowds and this place was perfect. We stayed at Trails End. It was clean, private and came well equipped. The bed was very comfortable. Diane gave us a tour when we arrived and made us feel at home. We really enjoyed the fresh eggs and garden vegetables. Close to Cades... More

We loved our most recent stay at Pioneer Cabins & Guest Farms! It is a beautiful, quiet location in Townsend, right outside the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. The cabins are rustic but have all the comforts: private hot tub, cable TV, WiFi, grill, air conditioning. The owners, Roger & Diane, are so friendly and will do whatever they can... More

We've visited these cabins for years. Beautiful cozy cabins. Fresh eggs, herbs and seasonal produce available from wonderful organic garden. Pioneer cabins provide a peaceful oasis. Right next to smokey mountain park, hiking trails , cades cove. Perfect for anyone who wants to avoid the carnival of gatlinburg. Nothing better then sunset and/or sundown view from a hot tub.

This is a great stay! I would recommend it to anyone. Just outside the Smoky Mountain National Park and about a 30 minute drive to the main area attractions. The staff is very friendly and willing to help any time you need it. Note: For those that need WIFI, it is only available need the main office. It does not... More

We spent 5 nights in the Hide Out cabin. The cabin was very nice and quiet and was very clean. We had everything that we needed during our stay. The location is good and is off the main road but close enough to the park and restaurants and stores in Townsend. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
