    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!

    Just what we were looking for!

    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

    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!!!!!

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    Loved this cabin. The rooms are much larger than the photos show. Lots of small touches for your comfort like a night light in the bathroom. Super comfy bed with a set of steps if you bring a small dog. Nice having a gas grill at the ready. Just perfect for the two of us.
