This, our 25th year of marriage, we determined to return to our honeymoon location at the Pioneer Cabins and Guest Farm in Townsend, TN. The allure of a cozy log cabin in the mountains is a shared dream of ours and this week we renewed our dream by staying in one and reinvigorating our desire to own our own. Great... More

We came to Townsend for the Great Smoky Mountains Half Marathon and spent 3 nights in the "Rooster's Perch" cabin with several friends. Great location, close to town (restaurants, winery, etc.), and easy to get to the race start. Also about a 45 min drive to Cades Cove in the National Park if you want to do some hiking and... More

We are currently staying a long weekend at Trail's End Cabin and are loving It! Cabin is fully equipped and clean. Hot tub is well maintained. Porch overlooks a pasture with Mountains in the background. This is the place to be in the Smokies

My husband and I decided to take a short vacation to the Smokey Mountains. Cades Cove was our main goal. After looking for rentals in the area we decided on Pioneer Cabins and I am so glad that we did. The owners were welcoming and there if we needed anything. We stayed 2 nights in the 'Hide Away' Cabin. It... More

We recently stayed in the "Rooster's Perch" cabin for several days with friends, and it was as close to ideal as we could have wished. Neat, clean, well-furnished and located just at the top of the property with a good view of the horizon from the four rocking chairs on the porch. Hot tub was easy to use and well-maintained,...

After driving through Pigeon Forge on the way to Townsend, I was so relieved we were staying in this quiet town during our trip. We came to the Smoky's to commune with nature. I was shocked at the tourist trap towns surrounding these beautiful mountains. I guess lots of folks are looking for that- go figure. Anyway we had wonderful... More

We had such an amazing 4 day stay at Pioneer Cabins & Guest Farm. Right upon arrival, we were happily greeted with a smile and a small tour - and then my kids hopped in the owner's golf cart for a fun ride to our cabin! We stayed in the Bunkhouse and it was so clean (it even smelled fresh... More

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
