    Great little cabin for 2 people! The hot tub and fire place were nice. No issues with cell phone signal. 30-45 minutes from the National Park, Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge. Pro Tip: The hot/cold water is reversed in the shower.

    Great cabin and location. Smoky Cabins has always been great to work with. Very nice and accommodating. Cabin is perfect for a couple.
  • - 9/17/2021

    This was our 4th visit to the poplar cabin. We love this little cabin. It is so warm and inviting. Everything is always perfect for us. The cabin is perfectly maintained, and well managed. We get email updates, we know exactly what to do if anything needs attention. I hope to be back real soon. Bonnie
  • - 7/13/2021

    Very nice cabin. Clean, secure and safe. Instructions about check out, garbage and bears was nice to have. Liked the code to enter rather than a key. We will certainly be back some day. Liked the email updates too.

    Very clean, comfy bed, good location to walk, good for people with mobility issues (all one floor, drive, doorway, shower).
  • - 5/7/2021

    Our cabin was great and the getaway was just what we needed after a long covid isolation! We were able to cook our own meals and stay pretty much to ourselves, yet get out and enjoy beautiful Tennessee.
  • - 4/21/2021

    The cabin was perfect! Easy to find & access upon check in. We had a pleasant, peaceful stay & everything was exactly as expected based on the pictures & description of the cabin. Cute, cozy & would definitely stay again in the future. Thanks for the great experience!
  • - 3/29/2021

    This was my honeymoon and the cabin was perfect!!!
  • - 3/14/2021

    We have stayed in this cabin before and we love it!! We enjoyed our stay very much and my husband says he wants this cabin every time we book one!
  • - 3/10/2021

    My (now) fiance and I loved this place, as we have all the others from Smoky Cabins. This is our third cabin to stay in with Keith & Cathy. It was very clean and quiet. We really enjoyed ourselves and I was surprised with an engagement! So, this is a special cabin to us now!
  • - 2/15/2021

    Beautiful cabin and well maintained. We will be back for sure!
  • - 1/25/2021

    You have a very nice little cabin. We enjoyed our stay with you very much. The fire place made it extra nice.
  • - 1/10/2021

    Great stay. We got to see snow! Enjoyed using the fireplace and the cabin was the perfect size for a couple. Warm & cozy. Thanks for a great cabin weekend!
  • - 12/27/2020

    I always choose smoky cabins to stay with because I can trust that any cabin rented by them will be clean, have everything you need, and will feel just like home! The poplar place is an absolutely beautiful and cozy cabin and I will be staying here again!
  • - 12/4/2020

    Loved this cabin. Was super cozy and just what we needed after a long day in the cove and hiking. We will defiantly be back!!!
  • - 11/30/2020

    What a great little cabin. Very neat. Very clean. Everything you could ask for in a cabin in the woods!
  • - 11/19/2020

    This was our second visit to the poplar cabin. I cannot wait to return again. Thank you for such a beautiful peaceful vacation home...
  • - 11/15/2020

    Wonderful stay! Everything was clean and stocked!
  • - 11/8/2020

    This was a great find. This little cabin in the mountains was perfect for my wife and me. It was clean, cozy, and quiet. We enjoyed our morning walks up the mnt road. Close to Townsend. We will be back. Staff was easy to work with when we had questions and called. Thanks
  • - 11/1/2020

    We really enjoy staying here. Very convenient to Cades Cove and the park in general. Cabin is very comfortable. We will definitely keep coming back.
  • - 10/1/2020

    This was my first experience staying in a cabin. We just loved the cabin. It was everything and more than expected. The cabin is very warm and welcoming. I cannot wait to return.
  • - 9/28/2020

    clean very nice enjoyed our stay.
  • - 9/12/2020

    We enjoyed our getaway. We didn’t see any wildlife but still relaxed.
  • - 9/9/2020

    Everything about this cabin was perfect. Loved the decor and plenty of space to relax. The location is great for entering Smoky Mountain National Park from the Townsend TN entrance. We drove out of the park into Gatlinburg and it was so crowded and congested we did not even get out of our car. Would recommend staying in Townsend instead. Highly recommend this cabin and visiting the Smoky Mountains!
  • - 9/8/2020

    Just what we were looking for!
  • - 8/25/2020

    Great hideaway and beautiful location for relaxation!!! Immaculate cabin especially the bed! Will definitely come back next year to make this to become an annual trip
  • - 8/19/2020

    Its a wonderful cabin in the middle of the woods, private, not a lot of traffic. Loved the fast hot water, but it sure needs wifi, for sure!!!!!
  • - 7/27/2020

    What a lovely stay I had at Poplar Place! I love the cabin’s remote location, and everything in the cabin was in working order, well-equipped. It was great to be able to have my dog stay with me, and I appreciated the **cleanliness** and modern perks (jet tub, cable TV, air conditioning) of this little cabin on the mountainside. Heads up to future renters: this cabin is accessed from a pretty steep road, but it was perfectly fine when dry. It might be a challenge, though, in snowy conditions if you come in winter. I deeply appreciated the wide, paved driveway area which made the cabin very easy to access from the road. There was also a good area around the cabin to walk your dog for morning and nighttime potty breaks, and the road itself is not too busy with traffic, so we could easily take quick walks around the area (always, of course, with doggy waste bags on hand!). I love to bring my dog along when I travel, so I deeply appreciate that Smoky Cabins has some properties that allow for dogs to stay with their people! (And this was the ninth time I have stayed in a cabin operated by this company! I love these guys!)

    Excellent cabin in the woods close to mountains. Everything I expected and more. Would highly recommend it
  • - 6/15/2020

    This cabin was perfect for my husband and I. It comes with all the kitchen supplies you should need. We loved the area and the views, especially seeing 2 bears!
  • - 6/12/2020

    We have stayed in several different cabins with Smoky Cabins and we have always been very pleased with the management. If we have needed anything, it was taken care of in a timely manner. This year "Poplar Place" was a really nice spacious cabin for 2, clean, great location, just perfect for a couple. And the only thing that would have made our cabin any better this year is if it had WiFi! (And some hooks in the bathroom...there is only one towel holder in the bathroom) We highly recommend staying with Smoky Cabins.
  • - 5/31/2020

    Poplar was a great place to stay! Very comfortable and the location was amazing! Very quiet and you are really in the woods.
  • - 3/15/2020

    Amazing relaxing weekend, everything was nice and convenient.
  • - 3/7/2020

    Absolutely beautiful cabin first time staying here, definitely will be returning to Poplar!
  • - 3/3/2020

    Cozy cabin, quiet, close to everything.
  • - 2/28/2020

    We love the Poplar! Just right for us. This was our 2nd visit to this cabin and we’ll be back soon. I lost/left my makeup foundation somewhere there?
  • - 2/5/2020

    The cabin was awesome. Love the location and the size of the cabin was perfect. The wood burning fireplace was just icing on the cake. We will be back soon.
  • - 11/27/2019

    Beautiful cabin...we will definitely stay again. Enjoyed our trip and enjoyed the cabin!
  • - 11/4/2019

    We have been staying in the Firefly, this time we needed to be alone. Some really trying times have happened in our life and The Poplar was just the place for us, to receive peace of mind and renewing of spirit! The size was perfect, the lay-out is so free flowing and open. We will be back!
  • - 10/14/2019

    This was our 4th year staying in Poplar Place and we absolutely love it. The cabin is in the perfect location. It is secluded and just an absolutely nice cabin. Looking forward to next year already!!
  • - 9/27/2019

    Very clean an real quite.
  • - 9/16/2019

    We have chosen Poplar for several years now. Perfect size for a couple. Beautiful location!! Very quiet area! Just minutes from any destination you choose during your visit. We had joked with Cathy about the low sitting toilet AND we were very happy to find that it had been replaced. Cathy really listens and cares about any concerns you may have and is quick to resolve any issues....which are very seldom. Smoky Cabins is THE best choice for rentals in Townsend!!!
  • - 7/8/2019

    We found Poplar to be so relaxing. Just our size (except for the short toilet....LOL...maybe yal can include a booster seat??) Love the location. Very quiet. The king size bed was perfect. We felt like we were sleeping in separate zip codes..LOL! Thanks for caring for at this difficult time in our life. We will never forget your love and support. Yal are the best cabin rental business in Townsend!!
  • - 7/2/2019

    We really enjoyed our time here. The cabin was nice and clean. The management was very nice.
  • - 6/24/2019

    The cabin was clean and neat.
  • - 6/14/2019

    The cabin was beautiful and the location couldn't be better. This cove is deeply shaded and thickly wooded, woodpeckers calling overhead and morning light filtering down here and there. Very beautiful!!!
  • - 5/27/2019

    We enjoyed your cabin very much even though we were exploring the mountains most of the time. It was very comfortable and peaceful when we returned each evening. We found it clean when we arrived. A perfect stay!!
  • - 3/4/2019

    The perfect getaway! We needed a weekend away and the Poplar delivered. Peaceful setting nestled in the mountain at Townsend. We felt at home and didn’t want to leave. It was clean and well kept. Looking forward to staying at the Poplar again.
  • - 12/31/2018

    The cabin was in a great place, secluded but easy to access. It is bigger than it looks online. Very good design and everything we needed. I loved the location.
  • - 12/19/2018

    Spent a lot of time in the cabin because I became ill on the trip. Cabin was great. Just didn't get to move around like we wanted.
  • - 12/13/2018

    Love the cabin and location tucked away.
  • - 11/25/2018

    Very clean and comfortable cabin. A home away from home. Very quiet and peaceful. Would definitely return in the future.

    This was our 2nd year staying in the Poplar cabin. We love the location the cabin is perfect. The only thing I would suggest would be hooks in the bathroom to hang bathrobe etc. on. We plan on staying there again next year.
  • - 10/7/2018
