I will stay at the Owl Hoot Chalet again! Very peaceful, very large. Close to everything without being in the hustle and bustle of everything.
this home and area location is beyond 5 stars. the home is tucked away off the main highway in the most peaceful area, has an enormous meadow to walk in play in if you have kids or dogs. like we have. has a side yard and an yard up front so plenty of ground to explore with a creek that runs through the property. the house has a large deck with an adjoining picnic area with gates so kids and dogs can roam safely. inside this house has it all. full kitchen with everything you need to cook. not like other places by no means this is like your home. huge glass windows that make you feel you live in the trees. private even though you have neighbor close by so you are not in the middle of nowhere. everything is so close , gas, stores and most important cades cove and the beautiful nature surrounding you. enough room in this house to have a family or just two people, I for one cannot say enough good things about this house and location. you must love peace and quiet. if you want anything else drive to Gatlinburg or pigeon forge .close by. wears valley is also the cut through to those towns but take the time driving through do not miss a thing. this is what I call GODS country. people call Florida paradise but they would be wrong. the Smokey mountains are paradise. the owners of owls hoot could not be nicer to deal with, we ae return renters and never get tired of this place. rent with confidence.
The Owl's Hoot cabin was the perfect place for our family of four plus small dog. The cabin had a lovely gated wrap around porch that allowed all of to spend time outdoors with the birds, flowers, and bubbling stream. Our preteens even came "unplugged " to enjoy the swing, tossing the football in the large private meadow, and walking through the backyard stream. In the evening after our hike in nearby Cades Cove (10 minute drive) the grill and outdoor gazebo was pretty near perfect for family dinners. We enjoyed being not so close to the bustle of Gatlinburg, but close enough to get there for an evening out. The kids "twin" bed could benefit from a newer mattress but otherwise a wonderful stay for our family.
We had a wonderful time at the Cabin. It was absolutely beautiful. I would recommend this Cabin to anyone who loves the mountains and the peace and quiet of nature! Our stay was way too short! We will be back!
Best place to stay in Townsend. The cabin is located on a quiet road, close to the town's main road, restaurants and the National Park. The place is fully equipped and comfortable. We really enjoyed happy hours on the deck and gazebo, gazing onto the meadow and soaking in the solitude. It was fall and the trees provided a colorful backdrop. Last year, we stayed at the Hideaway on the Creek cabin nearby owned by the same folks and enjoyed that too but this place can handle more family members. Note that there's only one shower but there's a large hot tub in the loft. The owners really know how to make you feel wonderful. Townsend lacks traffic and crowds of tourists but you can drive to find that stuff if you want it. Do yourself a favor and book this cabin!
