We spent 5 nights in the Hide Out cabin. The cabin was very nice and quiet and was very clean. We had everything that we needed during our stay. The location is good and is off the main road but close enough to the park and restaurants and stores in Townsend. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

The Hide Out cabin was the perfect place to relax after a backpacking trip in the Smokys. The cabin was clean, the kitchen had everything needed to cook meals, the bed very comfortable, and the hot tub perfect. I loved the fresh veggies available in the guest center, and Diane invited me to harvest bok choy and tomatoes right from...

We absolutely loved this place. We stayed in the Trails End. It had beautiful views and was very secluded. We have little boys and they loved exploring the woods and going to the farm to see the animals. It was relaxing and a nice change from our hectic lives!

We thoroughly enjoyed hospitality of Diane (the owner) and organic farm. She was very helpful and prompt in assisting to our requests. Our teen kids 13 &15 enjoyed petting farm; milk feeding baby goat. Organic produce were excellent and super fresh; saved us from spending on groceries. We wish the cabin was little more updated but it had a country...

The "quiet" side of the smokey mountains offers so much more than Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Small shops and restaurants, family friendly tubing adventures and of course, this wonderful little hidden gem for lodging. The caretakers of this property are so incredibly friendly and caring you feel like you are visiting family. We went over 3 years ago and each...

Diane and Roger were gracious hosts treating us like family. The property was picturesque with lots of little things for the kids to do. The location is. Conveniently located off 321 and far enough in that you felt like you were away from the traffic but not so far that you couldn't run to the IGA. We had a great...

For the second summer, we visited the Farm, and I expect we'll be back next year. What a special place. My now 12-year-old son LOVES it there and spends a great deal of time "visiting" the animals. This time he fell in love with a baby goat who kind of acts like a puppy. Beautiful gardens which are so fun...

We stayed her for three nights in Rooster's Perch. It was a great cabin and everything we were looking for. There were four friends on a girls weekend hiking trip. During the day we hiked in the nearby Smoky mountains, then returned to our cabin to relax eat dinner and soak away the muscle tightness in the hot tub. The...

A very special place to escape from the every day city's lifestyle . The Farm is located in a peaceful and quiet part of Townsend , off the main roads so it's safe for children to play outdoor without adult supervision . The cabin we stayed at is called Trail's End , is clean cozy and it has all you...

For the second time, my husband and I celebrated an anniversary at the Rooster's Perch cabin. It is located in a wonderfully secluded spot, the "last house in the hollow", as we used to say in our neck of the woods! The cabin was very clean and comfortable. We arrived around 7:30 PM, and the owner had the lights on...
