The space
Welcome to the River, the Little River in Townsend, TN “The Quite Side of the Smokies.” Located in the heart of East Tennessee this hand-built craftsman log cabin is almost 3000 sq. ft with river front. Due to the cabins location it is easy to sneak into Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge avoiding the busiest routes to these popular destinations. The Little River, in front of the cabin, flows down from the Middle Prong watershed in The Great Smoky Mountain National Park (the most visited national park in the country) and only 15 minutes from where you are staying.

The cabin itself is 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The master bed room is on the first floor and has a private powder room and full bathroom. The other two bedrooms are on the second floor, and share a full bathroom with jacuzzi. All three bedrooms have queen size beds. The great room has a grand fire place and cathedral ceilings. There is a full kitchen, dedicated dining room, upstairs loft, front and back porch and a screened in balcony porch looking out on the river. There is also a total of 4 couches, 2 of which pull out into beds.

Full array LED flat panels are in the great room, master bedroom and upstairs loft. The cabin has a dedicated secure network with WIFI optimized for your mobile devices, so you can work, stay connected or just stream your favorite content.

Hey there, Welcome to the River! My family has been rooted in Townsend for generations, and we truly believe it to be, “The Peaceful Side of The Smokies.” I am proud to have the opportunity to run our family business full-time, allowing me to focus on our customers and our services. Kate and I live a short distance away from the Townsend properties in Historic North Knoxville. She is a Senior Director with the YMCA with a background in Childhood Development. My background is in Business and Communications. Our pets are our children; Milo the dog and Chloe’ the cat. In managing the business, I draw heavily on my time in the United States Navy and working for various companies across the financial services sector. Today, there is nothing I would rather be doing than helping to share our love and knowledge of Townsend, The Smoky Mountains and surrounding areas.
