We stayed at Pioneer Cabins & Guest Farm on October, 2016. It fulfilled all our expectations and more: A very comfortable cabin, spacious for two people, surrounded by trees so it seems completely secluded and very quiet, yet the location is very close to the Smoky Mtns Natl Park, without the terrible traffic and tourist traps in places like Gatlinburg....

We visited this place at the end of October, and the owners were so lovely and nice. They made you feel right at home. The cabin was so beautiful inside and out, and it was even better than the pictures! I highly recommend staying at one of their cabins. You are also welcome to their fresh produce and chicken eggs...

This, our 25th year of marriage, we determined to return to our honeymoon location at the Pioneer Cabins and Guest Farm in Townsend, TN. The allure of a cozy log cabin in the mountains is a shared dream of ours and this week we renewed our dream by staying in one and reinvigorating our desire to own our own. Great...

We came to Townsend for the Great Smoky Mountains Half Marathon and spent 3 nights in the "Rooster's Perch" cabin with several friends. Great location, close to town (restaurants, winery, etc.), and easy to get to the race start. Also about a 45 min drive to Cades Cove in the National Park if you want to do some hiking and...

My husband and I decided to take a short vacation to the Smokey Mountains. Cades Cove was our main goal. After looking for rentals in the area we decided on Pioneer Cabins and I am so glad that we did. The owners were welcoming and there if we needed anything. We stayed 2 nights in the 'Hide Away' Cabin. It...

We recently stayed in the "Rooster's Perch" cabin for several days with friends, and it was as close to ideal as we could have wished. Neat, clean, well-furnished and located just at the top of the property with a good view of the horizon from the four rocking chairs on the porch. Hot tub was easy to use and well-maintained,...

After driving through Pigeon Forge on the way to Townsend, I was so relieved we were staying in this quiet town during our trip. We came to the Smoky's to commune with nature. I was shocked at the tourist trap towns surrounding these beautiful mountains. I guess lots of folks are looking for that- go figure. Anyway we had wonderful...

We had such an amazing 4 day stay at Pioneer Cabins & Guest Farm. Right upon arrival, we were happily greeted with a smile and a small tour - and then my kids hopped in the owner's golf cart for a fun ride to our cabin! We stayed in the Bunkhouse and it was so clean (it even smelled fresh...
