We stayed at the waters edge cabin. It was very serene. Our cabin was equipped with everything we needed, creating a wonderful place for family time. Bob was very welcoming making us feel right at home. We will definitely be back!
My boyfriend and I have stayed here numerous times, each time as amazing as the last. It doesn't matter whether you have a large family (the best playground ever and tons of hiking, AND a petting zoo!), are a couple wanting to get away (hot tubs or jacuzzi tubs and privacy), or are naturalists wanting to discover new things (mississippian fossil beds, migratory birds and tons of native flora and fauna), this is the place for you. And you. And also, you. The host is phenomenal and you feel like you're at home. Do. Not. Pass. This. Up.
This trail is very popular with wildflower enthusiasts, especially during April and early May. To get to the TH... head towards Cades Cove. About 5 miles from the Townsend wye, towards the cove you will see a fairly large parking area on your right. This starts the Schoolhouse Road trail which leads to the WOS trail. Schoolhouse is an old ride so wide and easily hiked but does have some uphill. At 1.1 miles the Turkeypen trail enters from your left , continue ahead for 150 feet and the unmarked, but very obvious WOS enters from your left. A maintain trail for April and May. Follow the trail for approximately 1.5 miles and it will lead you down to the Sinks. The Sink area is flat with many types of spring flowrers....bring your flower book. Please stay on trail while visiting. When you leave the trail is much tougher because now you have to climb out of the Sinks. But when you reach the top of hill it then is an easy hike back to car. Enjoy…
My husband rented a cabin for our anniversary,He did a wonderful job choosing your location. It was peaceful & cozy. Cell phone service was enough to check on kids & that's all I needed. We laughed, snuggled, went for a walk, talked and took random naps..(and momentarily decided to live here - but we might miss the kids). We definitely went off of your map, not google :) Look forward to our next anniversary visit. Thank you for building your dream for others to enjoy as well!
I felt at home immediately, fishing, casino, and more important quality time with hubby. Bob is caring and awesome but never intruded at all. Definitely do the Hansel and Gretel. Bob started as a social worker, how much more can you say, and he knows the best fishing spots.
