Discount this week and next. Awesome cabin. Listen to the river run. Sleeps 2.

Why not take a break before holiday shopping begins? The first two weeks of December are open. Call me now and mention a 15% discount and it's yours!

Picture yourself here: a warm, candlelit, aromatic 'Jacuzzi' experience for two… sure to revive, yet relax...nature's way! Let love take over! Romance and serenity nestled in the warmth of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains ... a cabin beyond exquisite, surrounded by peace, and the wonders of our Creator. You'll find yourself sitting on your spacious balcony awe-stricken at nature while listening to the soothing sounds of the Little River below. Did I mention a stone fire pit out front to cuddle by or roast marshmallows? Ahhhh! 'Refuge' is a 24' x 28' authentic log cabin complete with a tin roof to enjoy that occasional, mid-summer afternoon rain! Situated within walking distance of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park Boundary line and made of white-pine timber with tall cathedral ceilings and exposed beams, this one-room, studio concept cabin has you feeling snug and cuddly. Yet the design with plenty of windows for viewing the woodlands out back gives you a wide-open feeling of being right out there with nature. Next to the candle-lit, romantic Jacuzzi for two awaits your super comfortable king bed complete with feather topper. Should you choose to bring company, they can rest in the sleeping bags or full mattress in the loft area. Can't seem to take a week off without Fido? Well bring him/her along! 'Refuge' is pet friendly .. woof! We simply ask that your pet be old enough to know where to do business and not chew on our stuff. Also, if he/she is allowed on the furniture at home, please bring a couple of throws for the sofa and comforter.. thanks. Oh, and one more thing, these loveable creatures really tend to shed. You are probably used to it, but it makes me sneeze. Would it be too much to ask to pamper the little ball of fur in preparation for vacation and have him/her taken to the vet for a grooming (or at least a good brushing by the master at hand before departure)? Thanks again! The unique ambience of this mountain oasis is undoubtedly the ability to listen to the rush of the Little River as you rock your cares away in the two back porch rockers. A marshmallow roast over the cozy fire pit ends your perfect day. Combine that with being able to hike down the private lane and step across the Park boundary and you'll find yourself wanting to explore again and again. You will even ford a little waterfall that crosses the lane as you venture out and take in nature's bounty! Townsend has a three mile bike trail, a fly fishing school, occasional bluegrass/molasses festivals, gorgeous mountain golf greens, nice dining, hiking trails, horseback riding, gobs of tubing opportunities, and is within seven miles of historic Cades Cove. You're only 18 miles from Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Gatlinburg, music theaters, outlet malls, and activities of all sorts. If you yearn to learn more about our awesome Smoky heritage, ask for FREE tickets to the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center. Play like a out for the goodies then retreat to your little nest on the "peaceful side" of the Smokies in Townsend, Tennessee. It all awaits you at River Bluff Cabins in the Smokies ... when you're searching for a memory, not just another place to sleep...Note: six of our unique cabins .. 'Bearfoot Lodge', 'Genesis', 'Refuge', 'Manna', 'Bearfoot 2' 'BearyTale' and 'Evergreen' all sit on the same lovely one-lane road nestled in the woods, some with River ambience! They are within walking distance to one another as well as the National Park boundary line, although they maintain their own privacy. Together, they will accommodate 43 folks! Book one or all six! Now how cool is that!

Very Good

“Excellent as always!”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2018

This is such a sweet piece of heaven on earth. Billie is so awesome and makes the cabin a wonderful retreat. We'll see you again soon! Tara Perdue

“Nice place to unwind”

Reviewed 25 Dec 2017

Refuge exceeded my expectations. Just what we needed! Easy directions were provided. Very convenient to what we wanted to do! Everything was nice and clean.

“A True Mountain Refuge”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2016

My wife and I stayed at the "Refuge" cabin to celebrate our anniversary. Some words that come to mind are: quiet, peaceful, romantic, beautiful and relaxing. The owner has created a delightful getaway spot in an equally delightful little town. We very much enjoyed our too-short stay at this cabin, and would love to visit again. Highly recommended!

“Perfect Winter Wonderland Stay!”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2013

We love Refuge so much! I can't say enough about this cabin with a loft! The big porch overlooking the river is perfect, even when it's cold and snowing! So great to watch the wildlife from there. The Jacuzzi tub inside is perfect to watch the fire and look outside through the huge windows. If you want to get away, this is the place. It's on the quiet side of the mountain and anything you need isn't far away at all. It's in the perfect setting! We can't wait to stay there again!

“Home away from home!”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2012

If your looking for a weekend getaway or a week's worth of relaxation, then head to Refuge! My family and I have stayed here multiple times and have loved it each time. Sit on the bluff above the river, steps from The Great Smoky Mountains. Literally 15 minutes from Cades Cove! Townsend is called the 'Peaceful Side of the Smokies' stay in Refuge and find out why!
