“Favorite Cabin Yet”
Reviewed 22 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to stay in the Genesis cabin in Townsend, Tennessee. The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a romantic getaway from our normal city lives. The cabin was huge and includes a pool table, hot tub (right above the river), screened porch, fire pit, lots of patio spaces, and several games. There were so many different little nooks to hangout, which was one of my favorite things about the space. Our cabin was very clean and you can tell there has been a lot of thought and effort put into adding items that will make guests comfortable and happy, from the plush blankets, to the cute decorations and glassware. We were also allowed to bring our dog which made taking a vacation much easier to do.
The cabin is a short drive from Gatlinburg (about 40 minutes) and I would stay here every time before I would stay in Gatlinburg or any of the other surrounding areas. There are a few good restaurants in Townsend. We went to Trailhead Steak and Trout House. The food was great and the pricing was reasonable. We also went on a mountain roller coaster ride at Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster-so much fun! My boyfriend and I hope to come back to this cabin very soon. We were very sad to leave and made some great memories there. I would definitely recommend renting this cabin to anyone who asks.

What a awesome stay! I have nothing to say but good things about Evergreen and Billie P! Both of which exceeded our expectations. Cabin was nicely stocked with cooking utensils and the cabin was very clean. The view of the river was outstanding. We will definitely be back!

Genesis is spacious and very nicely furbished. The location just outside Great Smoky Mountains National Park can't be beat. Subtracted a star for the hot tub not working and the game room futon bed being beyond its life time - as in ridiculously uncomfortable.
