This peaceful 3 bedroom (queens), 2 1/2 bath log cabin is nestled into the woods of Bradley Mountain with a Spectacular View of the Smokies from the front porch and living room, a private hot tub on its own deck in the trees out back.
Cherokee is a wonderful cabin for both couples and families alike. On the main floor, you will find a living room with wood burning fireplace, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. For a larger group, you will find two private bedrooms and a half bath for convenience upstairs. The full finished basement provides entertainment with an air hockey table, foosball table and TV seating area. The laundry room and another full bath is in the basement as well. Every bedroom in this cabin has it's own LCD TV for late night viewing.
Just a walk outside along the stone path and you'll be in your 6 person hot tub.

Easy and fast access to Cades Cove and the beautiful Smoky Mountain National Park. Only 20 minutes from Pigeon Forge and 30 minutes from Gatlinburg.

MPORTANT: Out of respect for the holidays and our employees, we do NOT allow ANY check in or outs on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day

*3pm - there is NO check-in office, you go straight to the cabin

*10am - Please follow our check out guidelines.

*On During: October 1st - April 1st

Common Concerns:
*Road Conditions: Some of our cabins are on steep, narrow, curvy, mountain roads. If you are concerned about road conditions to get to a cabin, please feel free to ask us! None of our cabins require a 4 wheel drive under normal weather conditions but some do in inclement weather.
*TV & WiFi: We do have TV's and WiFi in most all of our cabins. There are times when heavy cloud cover, weather systems, mountains, or trees will cause problems with the signals. We always want our guests to have the comforts they want on vacation, but there are times we cannot control this problem.
*Pests & Wildlife: Here in the Smoky Mountains, we have lots of native bugs and wildlife. All of our cabins are treated for pests, but there are times you will find bugs or even have trouble with bugs. Please let us know if they are causing trouble, we will handle it as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please never feed, taunt or approach any wildlife. This is their home and we are the visitors.
*Well Water: Most of our cabins are on well water. Well water here in the Smoky Mountains sometimes has a different feel to it and often times a slight sulfur smell and often times has a brown color. Well water is safe to drink and to use for bathing and to cook with. We do have water systems on any cabins that have these issues, but keep in mind, it may smell and feel different than what you are used to. Also, some of our wells take time to recoup themselves after a lot of water has been used. This is a common problem in this area and there are times you may have to use water sparingly or wait for the water pressure to rebuild.

Cancellation Policy:
*$50 cancellation fee
*Before 30 days - you will get all of your money back (-$50)
*Within 30 days - whatever dates we can rebook, this is the amount that we will refund back (-$50). Example: if you had 5 nights & we rebooked 4 nights = you will be refunded 4 night+tax+cleaning fee

    Cabin was absolutely beautiful..we loved it. Very peaceful and relaxing. Amazing place. We will be going back there! Absolutely loved the front porch and tin roof.
  • - 4/10/2019

    Had some issues with water pressure but they made sure to get someone out there to fix it very quickly for us.

    Seven friends enjoyed our stay in this quaint, rustic cabin. The location is perfect—isolated, yet close enough to run to town if necessary. A very enjoyable stay!
  • - 6/17/2019

    We love this cabin. It was not our first time here. And we will keep coming back.
  • - 10/15/2019

    I have stayed many times and it is always easy. Clear, specific instructions, clean and functional cabins. Details are taken care of and staff pleasant and helpful.

    We had a great time! Very nice cabin. A little farther away than I thought. But worth it.
  • - 6/2/2019

    Fantastic deal for lovely accommodations with great views. We rent 4 cabins each year for a large group; this was our 13th year.

    Always a wonderful stay at Cherokee cabin! Management are lovely people and always helpful. Cabin is well cared for and clean. Also well stocked. Thank you!

    We loved the Townsend area and all that the "Quiet Side of the Mountain" had to offer! The location of Cherokee cabin was perfect for us and was surrounded by trees with no other cabins in sight. The porch swing with mountain views and hot tub surrounded by trees were both wonderful! The size of the cabin and number of bathrooms were great. The upstairs and basement level (with laundry!) seemed a bit more updated than the main level which just seemed a bit older. Overall, for the price we loved our stay!

    We had a great time.the cabin was clean and we also enjoyed the hot tub..thanks to all of you for a good vacation.

    Management absolutely gets 5 stars, problem solvers for sure! Not that there were any problems with our Cherokee cabin, just that our car couldn’t make it up the hill to our original cabin and this cabin was miraculously found for us. It is spacious, very comfortably and attractively decorated, and was spotless. Lots of hot water, great water pressure (very important to me), comfortable beds, great outdoor spaces, and so much space inside. Private, quiet, very close to the park entrance. Great place to return home to after hikes, equally great if you happen to be rained in. We thoroughly enjoyed the Smokies and our Cherokee cabin.

    We loved our stay! We had an amazing time!

    Great place! Keep in mind it's a little bit of a drive from Gatlinburg and PF, but worth it. Cabin is in great shape and had everything we could possibly want. Pro-tip: there is a calm spot in the Little River minutes from the cabin where locals have put up a rope swing. Use the gravel pull-off between the two paved parking areas closest to the cabin (to the south) to enjoy. We went there nearly every evening after the day's activities.

    The cabin was beautiful. The pictures don’t do it justice! Beds were comfy, the kids enjoyed the game room. We did have a small plumbing issue when we arrived was fixed professionally & quickly.

    Great views. Easy access to highway. Close to the caverns. Clean cabin with everything you need. Daughters loved the fooseball table and hot tub.
  • - 9/30/2019

    Always a great vacation! Love this cabin, always clean, well stocked.
  • - 7/22/2018

    Overall great experience. We had a few issues with the cabin but was resolved quickly except for the dryer and due to timing and rain I couldn't get to the laundromat or leave them out to dry. The cabin was clean and setup nicely. We are already looking at a different cabin for next year.
    Management Response: We are so sorry for the dryer issue. The part is supposed to be here on Monday and will be fixed after that. Thank you!!
  • - 12/22/2018

    Very good overall experience. Enjoyed the cabin. The only complaint is the hot tub needs to be under cover so we could use it while it was raining. Nothing else to complain about other than little minor stuff that could happen anywhere. We would definitely recommend this Smoky Cabins and the Cherokee cabin.

    I loved the location and homey feel of this cabin. I felt that it was a good value for the money. However, I would not rent this cabin again for 8 people. It is tight quarters for people who plan to cook, the kitchen is very small and difficult for more than one person to maneuver in with limited counter space and cabinet space for food storage . There is no dishwasher, so that is a lot of cleanup for 8 people. I think that a couple or smaller family (2-6 people) would feel very comfortable and happy here. The front and back porches were lovely and the location close to Hwy 321 is great.
  • - 12/19/2017

    The cabin was very clean, and the staff at the office were friendly and helpful when we called upon arrival and departure. We enjoyed our stay!
  • - 3/30/2019

    We had a great time and loved the cabin! Great for large family. Cozy.
  • - 4/5/2019

    Great location, clean, cozy, and quiet. We will be back!

    Very clean and great location....great place to stay

    We have always been very very happy with everything in all the years we have booked with Smoky Cabins! Several years ago my husband and I were staying in Heavenly View and yes the view is truly Heaven,we loaded all our stuff the night before into the trunk as we were leaving early to head back to Northeast Missouri,only to wake up to a flat tire and pouring down rain,unloaded it all to get to the spare and you guessed was flat!! We did not know anyone or anyplace to call so my husband called the Smoky Cabin office and Keith so kindly came to our rescue,we were truly greatful as it was something that he did not have to do.. Very highly recommend them!!

    The cabin was clean and felt homely. While we have enough blankets and pillows, had to wash towels 2 x's to allow usage. Not enough only 5 total, for 5 adults and 3 kids.
    Management Response: Actually that cabin has 16 towels in it. They are in the cabinets under the bathroom sinks. I guess no one looked in there.
  • - 10/7/2018

    We had a great time and will definately be back. We live in Knoxville so this was a great place to stay on the polite side of the smokies!
  • - 10/1/2018

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, I am a long time fan of the smokey mountains, my husband and step kids are new to the experience and they had a good time as well. And that is saying a lot considering they have always been beach people.
  • - 7/29/2019

    We had so much fun here.Best cabin experience we’ve had.We have never seen so many bears.The tubing,cades cove and food.Really good time
  • - 6/26/2018

    Our family loved spending time at the Cherokee cabin as a base camp for Cades Cove, Gatlinburg, Clingmans Dome, etc. Townsend truly is the peaceful side of the Smokies and we loved that. The game room in the basement was great for evenings winding down. The WiFi was great and the porch was an absolutely perfect spot to sit with coffee in the morning and an ice cold beer in the evening.
  • - 5/4/2019

    This is our 4th visit to the Cherokee cabin. We "The Missouri Gang" love visiting every year. This is a lovely rustic cabin you are sure to enjoy! We always use SmokyCabins when booking! Highly recommend...we will be back!! Thank you!
