Townsend is a little gem hidden in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and is known as "the peaceful side of the Smokies". Excellent food, local craft beer, chocolate, pancakes, and art, all within a short walking distance!! Trout fishing and tubing the river are extremely popular, and we are just 2 mi. from the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and only 12 mi from the famous Cades Cove where you can get a glimpse of history and may even catch some really neat wildlife including bears! Jeep rentals, Horseback riding, and zip-lining are popular in this area in addition to tubing, hiking, and fly fishing. If everything that Townsend has to offer isn't quite enough to please everyone in your group, we are just an easy 30-minute drive to Pigeon Forge and 45 min. drive to Gatlinburg featuring endless entertainment for all walks of life.

Walk, drive, bike, rent a Jeep or ATV!

We are a family of 4 who love adventure and enjoy sharing some of our favorite places with you! From the ancient Smoky Mountains (did you know this mountain range is the 8th oldest in the WORLD?!), to the gorgeous white sands and glassy waters of the Florida Panhandle/Emerald Coast. Parker is an award-winning mortgage loan originator specializing in helping families start their short-term rental portfolios, while Oz is a "retired" Electronic Engineer, who now spends his days tirelessly working on each of our properties to keep them in great condition! Our daughter Taliesin who is headed to college has been involved in design and decor and our son Zolin who is still in high school just might be the one to answer your message or inquiry. We are emotionally attached to each of our properties (even though we aren't supposed to be lol) and we truly hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
