Loved the house it was great but not a fan of the tub
Great place to have dinner and relax after hiking GSM NP. Close to Cades Cove entrance and grocery store. Neighbors are nice. Love the outdoor shower!

I thought it was very laid out. The only downside was the shower was not inside.

This was the cutest and most charming little cottage. I loved everything. Soaking in the claw foot tub was wonderful. Relaxing under the beautiful quilts that were available. The fully stocked kitchen was an added bonus. Loved the ease of checking in and out. Will definitely return in the future.

This cottage was located very close to the entrance to the Smoky Mountain National Park. And, it was a quick drive to Maryville or Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
It’s super quiet, which we liked.

This cottage is close to the Main Street in Townsend. You are never far from any attractions. Cades Cove, the Caverns, Little River railroad museum are just minutes away. Nicely furnished with lots of amenities.

The home is exceptionally clean, cozy and lovely. The bed is comfy. The property manager, Vacasa, cooperatively agreed to supply a few extra kitchen items we suggested would be very helpful.
The tv is nice but viewing options are few. We wished we had packed our Firestick to access our Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. accounts.

It may be small, but it packs just the right amount of charm and space. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. You need to look around a little for everything, but it’s there. The tv is hidden, the microwave is hidden, but everything was great.
Loved the little dining room that doubled as my office. And the decorations are cute as a button.
A surprise? There was WiFi which I GREATLY appreciated.

Peaceful cottage in the Smokies, convenient to Maryville, Townsend, Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge.
Laurie F.May 2020
We loved our long weekend stay at the Willow Cottage! We wanted peace and quiet and we got it with the convenience of being super close to the park!
Steve H.May 2020
Worked well for our short stay. Did have issue of no key available at check in and then no hot water.
We apologize for the issues you encountered and will work to ensure this does not happen to incoming guests. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!

Cottage was very nice, and well furnished. Perfect for a couple. I understand we were the first guests there. The TV did not work, and the internet would not connect. I am sure these issues will be resolved. Look forward to a trip back in a few months. Location is close to everything in Townsend.
Thank you for your review. The home did not have cable or internet at the time of your stay, but the owner does plan on installing them soon. We hope to see you again!
