Refuge..Romance/River/CadesCove/Tix Heritage Cntr

  • Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    Picture yourself here: a warm, candlelit, aromatic 'Jacuzzi' experience for two… sure to revive, yet relax...nature's way! Let love take over!

    Romance and serenity nestled in the warmth of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains...a cabin beyond exquisite, surrounded by peace, and the wonders of God. You'll find yourself sitting on your spacious balcony awe-stricken at nature while listening to the soothing sounds of the Little River below. Did I mention a stone fire pit out front to cuddle by or roast marshmallows? Ahhhh!

    ‘Refuge' is a 24' x 28' authentic log cabin complete with a tin roof to enjoy that occasional, mid-summer afternoon rain! Situated within walking distance of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park Boundary line and made of white-pine timber...

    Things to Do
    Additional Location Information
    Bring your pole for that "fisherman's dream"... the Tennessee Little River, which you can marvel at from your private deck at "Refuge." As you are enjoying the serenity of nature, you can gaze across the river and see the occasional hazy 'smoke' boiling over the mountaintops, which gives the majestic Smokies their name. Townsend has a three-mile bike trail, a fly fishing school, occasional bluegrass/molasses festivals, gorgeous mountain golf greens with swimming pool access, nice dining, hiking trails, horseback riding, gobs of tubing opportunities, and is within seven miles of historic Cades Cove. You're only 18 miles from Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Gatlinburg, music theaters, outlet malls, and activities of all sorts. Play like a squirrel...run out for the goodies then retreat to your little nest on the "peaceful side" of the Smokies in Townsend, Tennessee. It all awaits you at River Bluff Cabins in the Smokies.

    Romance and serenity nestle...

We link to stay in Townsend when visiting the Smoky Mountains and avoid the crowds in Gatlinburg. We have stayed in several of the local hotels but this time decided to try a cabin. The Refuge Cabin was a great place. It had plenty of space and everything we could need. The location was as close to the park as... more

Refuge is the perfect cabin in the mountains retreat. It is on a very private road and designed for total privacy even on the outside balcony deck. Refuge has everything you need for a retreat from the world and even more comforts than home. Huge pillowtop comfy bed, fabulous jacuzzi, fireplace, CD system for great music, everything needed to truly... more
