We take great pride in cleaning and sanitizing all our cabins, especially during this crisis. Come to the Smokies .. lots of room to spread out! 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 Great Smokey Mountain National Park boundary line! 'Genesis' is one of the very closest cabins to historic Cades Cove!

'Genesis' is one of the very closest cabins to historic Cades Cove! The screened-in porch includes a gas grill and table for outdoor dining, and the laundry room boasts Maytag appliances! Oh, and there is a Keurig in the kitchen so bring your fav K-Cups! There is a uniqueness to 'Genesis'. This beauty, completed in 2000, is a three story, authentic log cabin chalet, with over 2000 square feet, overlooking the river and waiting to pamper you. Enter and your attention is immediately drawn to the high cathedral ceilings, allowing you to enjoy the warm woodlands outside the two stories of windows. Spacious seating arrangements are here, and all of the Broyhill seats will recline for your comfort! Here you will enjoy a 50' big screen TV with cable, X-Box/DVD, an Englander wood stove, champagne-colored ceramic tile, ceiling fans, and the conversation piece is the hand-hewn staircase cut from locally fallen timbers. And 'Genesis' is pet friendly. I would like to know a bit about your furry little friend so call me. On the main level is a comfy king bed, the upper level has a queen and a futon in each of the two bedrooms and a bunk in the loft with a full on bottom and a twin on top. The lower level 'game room' has a futon with a full on bottom and twin on top. Beings there is a bath on this level two, we call it a bedroom with a game room. There are three bathroom in all, two showers/one tub. I just want to mention that we are at the very end of Townsend, right before the Park entrance. Again, best location in Townsend! Every great now and then there is a possibility of loosing an internet signal, and cell service here is rare (unless you're blessed with USCellular), as they allow no cell towers in our magnificent Park (thank the good Lord!). They just wouldn't fit into the nature setting. I have no problem with either when I am at the cabin, I've found the best place to pull up the wi-fi is at the kitchen table however. Just a bit of FYI. Note: seven of our unique cabins .. 'Bearfoot Lodge', 'Genesis', 'Refuge', 'Manna', 'Bearfoot 2', 'Evergreen' and 'BearyTale' 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. Together, they will accommodate 48 folks! Book one or all seven! Now how cool is that!More

Absolutely loved our weekend in The Genesis cabin!! Ms Billie was extremely helpful when booking the reservation. It was relaxing sitting in the hot tub overlooking the river. Beautiful and private. Many extras in the cabin to make the stay so easy and fun!!

Genesis was special, not your typical generic rental cabin. You have all the conveniences of home. The screen porch, decks and hot tub were our favorite locations. The trees provide the privacy and the river the background noise for you to forget where you are!...More

This cabin was very nice and in a great area in Townsend. The major issue was that we needed and expected a wheelchair accessible cabin as it is listed that way in Trip Advisor. The walkway into the cabin was gravel! And there was a...More

The location of the cabin was minutes away from Gatlinburg and pigeon forge. Good view of the mountain & the river in the back of the cabin. The Driveway could be a little bit wider for 2 cars
