My sister and I spent two nights at Woodland Cabins for a quickie getaway and it was absolutely perfect! We spent most of our time just sitting on the deck staring at the pond and listening to the birds. So relaxing! We will definitely be back.

My husband and I stayed at Woodland Cabins for 2 wonderful days. If you are looking for a place to re-connect with yourself and your significant other, then look no further. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised with our cabin get away. Spotlessly clean, cozy and incredibly quiet. Stocked with kitchenware, cookware and nice thick towels in the bathroom. The...

We spent 3 wonderful nights in the Fern Glenn cabin - it was AMAZING! It is beautiful, so secluded and private. We will definitely be back. If you enjoy nature and need time to rest and relax, by all means go to Woodland Cabins and spend some time. You will not regret it! Thank you to Jim & Leslie Morgan.

We have been visiting at Woodland Cabins since 2007. They are beautiful, secluded and always clean. The owners are hands on people and take wonderful care of the cabins and the property surrounding them. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to unwind this would be the place. Close to a variety of local attractions, or if...

This was our second stay at woodland cabins. As others have stated the pictures do not do show how beautiful these cabins are. We stayed in fern Glen. The cleanliness is far superior than any other place we have stayed. From the deer to the Cardinals there is plenty of wildlife to watch.

These cabins are literally located in the middle of all the attractions which made it super easy to navigate and venture out. But it is nestled in the countryside away from all the busyness of the city. We stayed in WoodSong, located on a pond, there are 3 other cabins located on the pond as well and we were never...

we were looking at going to Gatlinburg but the drive wasn't something we were looking forward to. Did some research and found these cabins close to home. We didn't want all the business that a big city offered but wanted quiet to relax. The Fern Glen was outstanding! Beautiful cabin, great set up, extra quiet and private. Plus close to...

We stayed at the Fern Glen cabin, this is the most secluded cabin. The cabin is very private and relaxing. Sometimes when you view a place to stay on the internet and it looks so very nice and clean and then you get there and it is not what the picture showed you. The Fern Glen is not a disappointment,...
