River Escape

Location: Townsend TN
Accommodations: 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath (Sleeps 4)

"River Escape" is a beautiful two bedroom, two bathroom cabin located on Little River in Townsend, TN. Known as "The Peaceful Side of the Smokies," Townsend sits next to the national park and is only minutes away from Cades Cove, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.

This cabin is located on an easily accessible, quiet street and sits right next to Little River giving you waterfront property that is 2nd to none. Right from the cabin, you can fish, swim or go tubing.

There are so many things to do in Townsend and the national park including hiking, tubing, biking, fishing, browsing the various shops, visiting Cades Cove, picnicking, swimming, visiting the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center and attending the various festivals/shows. After a busy day of sightseeing, you'll love returning to the warmth and comfort of "River Escape" and relaxing on the back porch or soaking in the large tub overlooking Little River.

    The cabin was great for our weekend. It was clean upon arrival and the location is close to everything we wanted to do. The river behind the cabin was very relaxing and we will be back.

    Very quiet, out of the way location on the river's edge provided relaxing atmosphere. The sound of the rushing water was very peaceful. Clean, and well cared for cabin, with all the amenities needed. We would stay here again.

    Beautiful cabin in a beautiful location. Very friendly quiet neighborhood along the river. Gives a feeling of being secluded on the river. This was our third stay here.

    The cabin was clean, well kept. The location was very nice , especially sitting on the deck listening to the river in the evening. My wife and I have been using your rentals for many years. This was by far the nicest one of all with Pioneer point a close second. Thanks you and see you in June@ the Lodge.

    We had a lovely stay at River Escape. The cabin was cozy with a great deck out by the river. The string of multi colored lights added a nice romantic touch.

    Would have been 5 star , but the hot tub broke. But we will still see you soon for another weekend.

    Wow! What a beautiful cabin, inside & out! We were so excited upon arrival, seeing the cabin & the creek, we were squealing with joy & delight, the neighbors thought there was something wrong lol! We so enjoyed the view from the back porch, the decor & accommodations & my grandson loved the hot tub! We would recommend EVERYONE to stay in this fabulous cabin. So close to Cade's Cove & Gatlinburg. We plan on coming back in the Spring & November 2019! Thank you for allowing us to share your home! See you soon ??

    Overall, we loved the cabin. It was nice and clean. We enjoyed our stay.

    We loved staying at this cabin! It was a nice retreat to come back to after the football game and after exploring the area. The cabin is very nicely decorated and is equipped with most everything you need except food!!! It was relaxing to sit on the back deck, sip on a glass of wine and watch the river-which is right in your backyard!! It’s a two bedroom, two bath cabin, but the upstairs bedroom appears to have a double bed, which would make it difficult to have two couples there! Otherwise, it is perfect!!

    The cabin and location were perfect for our stay. We attended a wedding at the lodge. The river was beautiful. Check out time at 10 a.m. was too early.

    Loved this quaint little cabin. Perfect size for our family of 4. Kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals. The cabin has been well taken care of and it was very clean.

    Very cute & clean! We loved being right on the water & the hot tub was wonderful. Probably the most comfortable bed we’ve slept on away from home.
  • - 10/11/2018

    Loved this sweet little cabin right on the river!! Very clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay again!

    Beautiful cabin! Downside was that the fireplace hadn’t been cleaned out. So we had to clean it out before using. Also the hot top want full. It only had water to less than the half way point. So we had to fill her up and wait for her to warm up. Outside of that it’s a gorgeous cabin, lovely views. Very relaxing!
    Management Response: Thank you for staying with us Tim. Sometimes guests leave fireplaces with burning coals that we can't clean out. I'm sorry about that!!!

    Overall we loved the cabin. The site was directly on the river.There was a nice deck with large hot tub.Inside, the kitchen was very nice. The main floor bedroom was relatively small but nice, and the bathroom was relatively large and nice.We really enjoyed the den and the wood burning fireplace.Also, Wi-Fi was very good.We would gladly stay here again, and would recommend it to friends.
    Management Response: Thank you for staying with us.

    We had a peaceful stay. The first night the rain on the tin roof sounded so inviting. We attended our 40th college reunion at Maryville College. Eat at the Black Bear Cafe! Really nice cabin.

    Had a wonderful time, the river view was fantastic. Cabin was just the right size for the two of us.

    We had another amazing family vacation! Thank you for always providing us with a clean and hospitable place to call home for the week that we were here. Our son, who is high functioning autism, always has trouble when we go away from home, but for the last 4 years when we have stayed in your cabins he comes to us and says “ I don’t want to go home, let’s just stay here!” Thank you for that.

    We were so pleased with our stay in the River Escape cabin! It was the perfect size for our family of 4. It felt just like being at home! My husband and our boys enjoyed the hot tub and I loved sitting next to the fire at night to relax! The location was perfect to get to Gatlinburg and other area sights! We definitely hope to be back again and have already recommended it to our family and friends!
  • - 10/18/2018

    Wonderful week at this great cabin! Close enough to the parks and sights and just far enough away from everything as well. Was peaceful and relaxing being on the river. The cabin is well furnished and comfortable. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed. Lovely eating dinner out on the deck in the eveings listening to the river! We can't wait to go back!
  • - 7/2/2018

    We loved staying here!!! Can’t wait to come back next year!!
  • - 4/1/2018

    I visit the smokies often with my family, and I wanted to bring my friends this year. This cabin was perfect for the 4 of us. It was very clean, and the hot tub was ready whe we arrived. We really enjoyed sitting out by the river on a sunny day. The cabin is in a great location, just a few minutes from the grocery store in Townsend; and about a 30 minute drive from the National Park and Cade’s Cove. Overall, it was a great experience, and we will be back!!

    Great cabin in super cool location.

    River Escape is a perfect getaway. It is so peaceful. We were not there at a good time to fish but we had fun trying. I love sitting on the patio with a cup of coffee with day breaking, river flowing, and birds chirping. We hit the peak leaf changing and it was beautiful beyond description. It was an awesome getaway for us. Would love to stay there again in the cabin.
