We spent 2 nights in Wind Rider while visiting the Great Smokies. The cabin is decorated beautifully. Linda has thought of everything to make you feel at home. We cooked breakfast and dinner at the cabin and found everything we needed in the way of cookware and dinnerware. The beds were comfortable.
As there were only two of us, the layout was great for us. We only needed to use two of the three bedrooms. I do agree with past postings that the bed in the downstairs open area would be a little awkward for a group.
The location is perfect to drive into the Great Smoky Mountains. Also a very nice visitor center right in Townsend.
The highlight of Wind Rider is the view from the deck and the bedrooms. Sitting on the deck in the morning and evening was so peaceful. The beauty of the mountains, and singing of the birds. It just does not get any better than that.
