This was our second stay at Top of Townsend. We loved our first visit but this trip was just as good, if not better. The cabin (Rachel's Roost again) was just as wonderful as we remembered. Being there is the fall was a new experience, and the location was so peaceful you could actually hear the leaves falling off the... More

Our cabin (Way Up Yonder) was huge and immaculate. The directions there were good, the hot tub was nice (and they put a LOT of chlorine in it!). Our view was okay. The porch was great. Clearly a lot of hard work and thought had gone into the building and furnishing of the cabin. The owners were nice, though VERY... More

We spent a week in Keg TT in May. The cabin is excellent and the owners are also very pleasant. The cabin is big but the only views are trees! It would be nice to rent a cabin with views of the Mountains. The outside hot tub is very welcoming after a long days hiking! An excellent location and very... More

We were 3 adults who like our space and were very comfortable. From the first floor bedroom you can hear when someone walks around in the loft and this... More

We rented 2 cabins (Triple J and Mel's Mountain Gem) for 3 nights for relatives coming to our daughter's wedding at Heartland Chapel in Townsend. We searched for roomy, quiet, and clean cabins for several families to share. We were all from out-of-state with no opportunity to check out the accomocations ahead of time. Top of Townsend more than fit... More

We took a trip to the Smoky Mountains (early April 2007) and were SO happy to find this spacious cabin run by a nice Christian couple (Top of Townsend - see their website). If you want to avoid all the tourism and busyness of Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, and prefer a quiet woodsy setting, try one of these cabins. We... More
