“Lovely cabin with river access and great view!”

person found this review helpful

We loved our 3 nights at River Escape. It was the perfect base to come back to every day and relax after exploring the area. The size was just right and had everything we needed. It was clean and seemed well-kept for a vacation rental. The only negative - the bathroom off the master bedroom was always cold!

“Love the cabin, but need different housekeeper.”
Reviewed December 20, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We love the location of cabin and the sights and sounds of the river at your back door. This was our second stay here, and it was drastically different than our first stay. The cabin did not have a clean feel to it, and required some cleaning when we got there, such as sweeping, mopping, re-washing some dishes, and washing the inside of garbage can. We also noticed when we took trash out that the outside trash can had not been emptied after last renters. We did not use hot tub because there was a strong mildew smell. We also were plagued with stink bugs the whole weekend. Don't know if there is a new cleaning crew, but you need different housekeepers.

I am so sorry that you had disappointments in your stay. We typically pride ourselves on 5 star reviews but see that you did not feel this way. We have had discussions with our cleaning staff and have come up with solutions to making sure that this doesn't happen again. We thank you for your candid feedback.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed September 9, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed this newer cabin. Nice furnishings, extra comfortable king bed with TV in master bedroom. Nice big porch to look out on the river. We paddled right to the cabin! Loved our stay and added additional days to our stay.

“Beautiful and Relaxing on the River”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This cabin offers you both privacy and beauty in one location. It was very clean and roomy. We couldn't be happier with our choice to vacation in the Smoky Mountains. Very close to food, shopping, Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Zipline, Horseback riding, roller coasters. We will will be going back soon!

“Best Cabin on this part of the river at Townsend.”
Reviewed October 2, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Great Cabin. Professionally decorated. On the river and private. Just needs a new 12" fry pan. When returning to the Smoky Mountains we will try to stay here again.

“Perfect cabin, perfect location and CLEAN!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We were looking for a cabin in Townsend, on the river in a peaceful yet accessible location and boy did we find it! What a great location, on the other side of the Little River from Highway 321 so it’s quiet, yet less than a mile from 321 and everything in Townsend. We were impressed by the cleanliness of the cabin and the completeness of the amenities. The bedroom downstairs has a huge bed that was outstandingly comfortable, with a laundry room that led to a nice bathroom. Upstairs there was a nice sized bedroom with full bed and bathroom. The kitchen had everything we needed and more; the fireplace was cozy and the balcony was beautiful with a great view. It included comfortable chairs and table for outdoor dining and a sparkling clean and warm hot tub on the balcony overlooking the river. We took chairs out to the river’s edge and just enjoyed the sound of rushing water and birds, so restful. This cabin is well built and well insulated so there’s privacy in each room and sound doesn’t travel, unlike cabins we've stayed in before, with another company, that were poorly constructed. We were also impressed by the professionalism of the Smoky Cabins staff. Relatives have stayed in several of their cabins and said the standards are the same no matter which one they choose. We highly recommend Smoky Cabins.
