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.

The Hide Out cabin was the perfect place to relax after a backpacking trip in the Smokys. The cabin was clean, the kitchen had everything needed to cook meals, the bed very comfortable, and the hot tub perfect. I loved the fresh veggies available in the guest center, and Diane invited me to harvest bok choy and tomatoes right from... More

We absolutely loved this place. We stayed in the Trails End. It had beautiful views and was very secluded. We have little boys and they loved exploring the woods and going to the farm to see the animals. It was relaxing and a nice change from our hectic lives!

We thoroughly enjoyed hospitality of Diane (the owner) and organic farm. She was very helpful and prompt in assisting to our requests. Our teen kids 13 &15 enjoyed petting farm; milk feeding baby goat. Organic produce were excellent and super fresh; saved us from spending on groceries. We wish the cabin was little more updated but it had a country... More

The "quiet" side of the smokey mountains offers so much more than Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Small shops and restaurants, family friendly tubing adventures and of course, this wonderful little hidden gem for lodging. The caretakers of this property are so incredibly friendly and caring you feel like you are visiting family. We went over 3 years ago and each... More

Diane and Roger were gracious hosts treating us like family. The property was picturesque with lots of little things for the kids to do. The location is. Conveniently located off 321 and far enough in that you felt like you were away from the traffic but not so far that you couldn't run to the IGA. We had a great... More

For the second summer, we visited the Farm, and I expect we'll be back next year. What a special place. My now 12-year-old son LOVES it there and spends a great deal of time "visiting" the animals. This time he fell in love with a baby goat who kind of acts like a puppy. Beautiful gardens which are so fun... More

We stayed her for three nights in Rooster's Perch. It was a great cabin and everything we were looking for. There were four friends on a girls weekend hiking trip. During the day we hiked in the nearby Smoky mountains, then returned to our cabin to relax eat dinner and soak away the muscle tightness in the hot tub. The... More
