“It doesn't get better than this.”

It was a great place, fabulous view, everything we needed was in place. This place allows you to visit the National Park if want without going thru Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. However, if you want to visit those it is a short drive. There are many places to eat and buy groceries close in Townsend. The owner is very kind and helpful. Our family will definitely come back. I don't take time to write reviews, but it was necessary that we share our appreciation for a great trip.

“October Mountain Weekend”

We booked a long weekend at The Wind Rider! We had a wedding in Townsend and decided to make a vacation out of it. It was an unbelievably beautiful cabin with an even more beautiful view. Great location and great amenities! Linda even saw us outside and provided us with some helpful information on how to get around the town and near-by things to do! We know where we will be staying if we ever head back to Townsend! Highly recommend this cabin for family vacation or weekend getaways!

“Wind Rider- Dream Vacation”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

This was a trip for the memory books. We rented the Wind Rider Cabin for Easter weekend and have no regrets! Nestled at the top of the mountain, this cabin had it all! The view was to die for. The architecture and craftsmanship on the inside was like nothing we have ever seen. The cabin was in immaculate condition. It was peaceful and quiet like a private getaway. We were greeted by Ms. Linda who was very kind and full of great information on local places to eat and visit. I would recommend, if it is your first time, to come during daylight hours to navigate the steep driveway as it can be intimidating if you are not used to mountain driving. Other than that, nothing negative to say. This was a dream vacation for our family of 4. We will most definitely be return vacationers. Thanks for making an unforgettable trip!

A group of my friends and I stayed in this cabin in January and this place was a God send. It was a little far from Gatlinburg (about 30-40 minutes if I remember correctly) but worth it! couldn't beat the price, the cabin was gorgeous and the owner was so easy to work with. When we return to Gatlinburg, we will surely try to stay here again. I suggest to arrive while the the sun is up because the driveway is a little difficult to find and its steep. The hot tub and view of the mountains were awesome. we loved it.
