Smoky Mountain Cabin

Smoky Mountain CabinRecently, we made some plans for our upcoming vacation. We were tired of the usual city trips that we take every year, so we looked at mountain cabins for rent. We finally settled on a cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains in scenic Townsend, Tennessee. Boy, were we in for a treat.

The reason that, of the all the mountain cabins for rent we chose that one had a lot to do with the picture. There were bigger, more imposing mountain cabins for rent, more luxurious destinations, but something about this particular Smoky Mountain cabin really captured the imagination. It looked like a hunting lodge settled under imposing, gigantic virgin pine forest. In the background there was just the tiniest sparkle from the pond behind it, glistening with light filtering through the tree.

When we got there, we were more than pleased with our choice of mountain cabins for rent. The “pond” was huge. It was really more of a lake. The only thing that made it at all pond like was the stillness of the water and the presence of lily pads and swamp grass on one side. Although there were other Smoky Mountain cabins for rent by the same company around the area, only one of them was in view, and that one was better than half a mile away, on the other side of the pond. It was possible to sit outside and feel like you were completely alone, far away from all of the toils of civilization.

The best thing about Smoky Mountain cabins for rent is, if the companies renting them are modern enough to advertise them on the internet, the cabins themselves are likely to contain all of the modern amenities. If you want, you can even find the Great Smoky Mountain cabins for rent with satellite tv int the middle of the Smokies! Personally, I think that this is pointless, and our cabin didn't even have television, as it would have disturbed the wonderful solitude of our surroundings, but it did have good insulation and adequate heating and cooling, as well as wonderfully warm showers which increased the relaxation of our vacation.

All in all, the Great Smoky Mountain cabins for rent are a great idea to consider for your next trip. There is no place with fresher air, or quieter nights, no better place to get away from it all than a quiet mountain cabin. I can't wait for next year.
