Just returned from weekend family reunion at this family owned (62 years) inn. We used Cottage #1 and several motel rooms. Cottage #1 sleeps 14 and can accommodate more for meals and gathering. The cottage is very comfortable, very clean, and well maintained and decorated. Even though the weekend was rainy there was plenty of room inside for the kids... More

Booked room in advance. Arrived around 9:10 PM. Checked in. Windows were all open in the room. After being in the room for a short period of time I knew why. Room had a very pungent odor, almost medicinal. Went to front desk to ask for another room, but couple checking in at that time was given the last room.... More

Whenever we are in the Smokies we like to stay here because it is away from all the noise and congestion of Gatlinburg. It is ideally located just a few minutes from Cades Cove and just a little farther to Gatlinburg. The rooms are clean and well maintained.

Nestled at the bottom of the Smoky mountains. This Inn is beautiful, clean, very spacious and quite. The king size bed are comfy, warm and cozy. The large balcony overlooks the bottom of the smoky mountains. The front staff is very friendly!! The only disadvantage to this Inn is that they had a flood and the Restraunt was closed. I... More

First the staff is friendly, especially Robyn and Mike, and knowledgeable about the area. Second, the rooms are large and clean. Third, the location is great, just outside Smoky Mountain National Park. Don't eat at the place next door, unless you're looking for cheap fried food. Eat at the Riverstone or the Black Bear Cafe. The Black Bear is where... More

The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. The rooms were big and clean, the only problem was the pillows were very hard. I always take my own but this time I forgot mine. We wanted a Queen bed but could only get the standard, which is small for a 6' 4" person. The only reason we couldn't get it... More

Our room was very nice and quiet and as usual very clean and well maintained. I would recommend this place very highly. to anyone wanting to stay in a quiet town. We don't care for the noise of Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge so Townsend fits our needs very well.

We went with a jacuzzi equipped room a must have after hiking to Abrams Falls in Cade's Cove. Unfortunately, the jacuzzi would not turn on. They... More
