Higher Ground

Location: Townsend TN
Accommodations: 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath (Sleeps 6)

Complete master bathroom and kitchen remodel with new marble countertops and more in early 2018.

Come and enjoy this beautiful, rustic cabin where you can relax and enjoy nature. Tastefully decorated, Higher Ground looks like it stepped right out of Southern Living magazine. The country mountain décor gives you the feeling that you want in a mountain vacation home.

  Higher Ground is a great place for 2 couples to getaway. With each bedroom having a king sized bed, everyone will be comfortable. Sink down in comfort and luxury in the Master bathroom with it's own whirlpool bathtub.  

Play Air Hockey in the loft or just sit in front of the gas fireplace for the evening.  

Conveniently located just outside of the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Only 10 minutes to Pigeon Forge and 20 minutes to fun filled Gatlinburg.   Want to rent two cabins close together, Check out Red Maple Ridge too. It's just 50 yards up the hill. A great way to get away together but still have privacy.

    We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cabin. All the comforts of home. Loved the electric recliner. Be aware the driveway is STEEP, and if you have a car low to the ground it will drag if you are not careful. But don't let that stop you from staying here.

    Very charming cabin! We were very surprised how updated, clean and beautifully decorated it was! Would definitely recommend it to others. We read about the steep drive ahead of our visit so we were prepared but still the first time up was a bit nervous. Would love to stay again!

    It was a delightful, cozy, and comfortable cabin that was so close to all the various activities the area has to offer. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch both morning and evening. We would definitely choose this cabin for future return trips!

    This was our 3rd or 4th time staying in the Higher Ground Cabin, it is the nicest cabin we have ever rented in the Smokies.

    We immensely enjoyed this cabin. It was perfect for our family of 6. We had plenty of blankets, towels and a well stocked kitchen. The kids enjoyed the air hockey table. I enjoyed running in the quiet neighborhood. The handbook was so helpful for quick references! We were also thankful for all the dressers as we were able to unpack fully for our 7 day stay!

    We enjoyed our stay.

    The higher ground cabin was perfect for our family. More than enough room for all of us, full kitchen & beautifully tucked away in the mountains. If you’re looking to ‘unplug’ this is perfect. We will definitely stay again.

    The cabin was awesome and beautifully decorated. We were very impressed. We usually try to stay in a different cabin each year. I believe we have been staying with Smoky Cabins for about 10 years. But my husband said he wouldn't mind staying in this cabin again. Wasn't too keen on the steep driveway, but the cabin made up for it. Have a great day.

    At this point I’ve lost count on how many times we’ve stayed with you but this was another great time. Cabin was fantastic. The only thing missing is a hot tub. See you again in September.

    Easy reservation and check in/out process. Directions to cabin we're easy to follow. The cabin was great. The owners certainly added that extra touch.
  • - 6/23/2019

    The cabin is beautiful, well stocked, clean, and well maintained. Thank you.

    The cabin was very clean. Loved the downstairs decor a lot; very cozy and just what you'd expect in a mountain cabin. The upstairs could use updating, but it was very clean and comfortable.
