We just completed our second anniversary vacation to The Pioneer Cabins in Townsend, Tennessee. Again, the cabin was completely furnished, very clean, and the Owners, Diane & Roger were wonderful in their attention to detail and interest in providing first class service while ensuring their guest's privacy. Pioneer Cabins also has farm animals, a petting zoo, and Diane is constantly working on her organic gardens, from which she provides fresh organic vegetables for her guests daily.
We spent the week sleeping in, hiking, biking, golfing, and just sitting on the front porch of our cabin looking out over the beautiful mountain valley.
My wife and I travel often, but the Pioneer Cabins is the one place we go back to every year. I highly recommend Pioneer Cabins for couples or families looking for an option to the neon overload of Gatlinburg.
For golfers, one of the best kept secrets is Lambert Acres Golf Course located between Maryville and Townsend, TN. Lambert Acres has 27 holes of golf in a mountain setting that is second to none. The course is is fantastic condition and the walking twilight rate is $10 or $ 20 with a cart. As a golf teaching professional, I can tell you there are no better golfing values to be found in this area.
