vacation rental description

Come, sit a spell and let me share with you the uniqueness of "Genesis," my own private escape. This
cabin, completed in 2001, is a three story, authentic log cabin chalet, with over 2000 square feet,
overlooking the river, just waiting to pamper you. Step in the front door and your attention is
immediately drawn to the tall cathedral ceilings, allowing you to enjoy the warm woodlands outside
the two-story, glass wall in back! Spacious seating arrangements are here, and all of the Broyhill
seats will recline for your comfort! Here is a 64" big screen TV with cable/VCR/DVD, an Englander
wood stove, champagne-colored ceramic tile, ceiling fans, and the main conversation piece is the
hand-hewn staircase cut from locally fallen timbers. Built as a personal residence with the few
extra touches, we've decided to share it with you!

chalet rental amenities

Sleeping arrangements include a king bed on the main floor, a queen and a full futon in each of the
two bedrooms upstairs, and a sleep loft in the middle with a twin over a full bunk. One full bath
on the upper level with a most unique shower/bath in the master. We have added another twin over
full bunk in the gameroom and since it has its own shower/bath, we call it a bedroom as
well. 'Genesis' will comfortably sleep 10, but can accommodate up to 16 if you get real cozy.

Wander out into the woodlands and onto the river bluff to the six-person hot tub on a winding,
custom-built deck. You're close enough to listen to the river as you marvel at the stars and soak
away all your cares.....ahhhhh! You are going to love being nestled in the woodlands right outside
the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. In fact, you can hike just a few yards down your private-
dead end road and step across the Park boundary! The screened-in porch includes a gas grill and
table for outdoor dining, and the laundry room boasts Maytag appliances!

Great Cabin

Review submitted: November 2, 2010   Date of arrival: October 23, 2010

We loved staying at Genesis. The cabin was absolutely amazing and very well equipped. It was like a home away from home. We got lucky finding this one! This is a superior property and I would highly recommend it.

Absolutely Beautiful!

Review submitted: October 6, 2009   Date of arrival: September 26, 2009

Everything about Genesis was wonderful! This is my second time staying in one of Billie's cabins. Last year was cabin Refuge and this year beautiful Genesis. This cabin has everything anyone would need and more. It is fully stocked with everything you need. The laundry room was great. The kitchen had everything you needed plus more! Three complete bathrooms but my favorite was the beautiful tile shower off the master bedroom. You have to see it. It was wonderful! The full size recreation room had it's own bathroom, a big pool table and even a full size refrigerator. It has a full size futon style bed and a upper twin over it. You have a beautiful screened in porch with a table and chairs that you can just relax and watch the river below and listen to all the birds. The hot tub is amazing. If you want all the best that the Smokies have to offer, then rent this cabin or even one of the smaller ones. I can not say enough about how wonderful the owner Billie and her son Jay are. They go the extra distance to make sure that you have the best vacation ever! We consider them family. We would highly recommend any of her three cabins. They are very clean and private. You will be right outside the entrance to the Park where you can go to Gatlinburg,Cherokee, or Pigeon Forge. Townsend offers very good restaurants plus alot of other activities. If you want a vacation rental that is very clean,quiet and fully stocked then you can't go wrong with one of Billie's cabins. The smaller ones are just as nice if you have a smaller family. I hope this review will help any who are looking for a perfect place to stay! You will not regret your choice of this cabin or one of the other two!
