Recent Townsend vacation rental reviews

Large beautiful home located in Townsend right on the Little River! So close to the National Park. Kitchen is fully stocked even with spices and pancake syrup! Grill is in great shape. Lots of board games, pool table, ping pong table and my fave - PAC MAN! Not one but TWO old school video game systems. Lots of room for kids and adults. VERY COMFORTABLE beds. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. You won't regret it.

This property was very peaceful and quiet. Great location for exploring Cade’s Cove. The condo was clean and nicely decorated. We would definitely stay here again!
