This little lodge is obviously a labor of love for the family that owns it. They were completely booked while we were there and in speaking with the others as they relaxed in the evenings outdoors in the comfy rockers, all but one other couple were return visitors. This is not a fancy place, but is comfy and and clean.... More

This place is an old hotel; however, you can tell the owners have put love into this place. Everything in the room is so clean. The bathrooms are tiny, but you can't deduct for that because they are working with what they have. The sheets smelled so fresh and the mattress was my preference of comfort. The grounds are beautiful,... More

We were here in July 2015. The rooms are clean the beds are comfortable. Everyone is friendly. Loved having so many restaurants nearby. It is located close to the entrance of the National Park. We will definitely return to this motel when we return to Townsend.

I Love staying at Riverstone! Each trip Terry has been improving the grounds! Belinda is like going to visit a little sister! The beds are comfy, pillows are nice and rooms clean! Salt water pool and Restaurant next door! Karen and her assistant do a good job tidying the room while your gone to The Cove!

The hosts at Riverstone made us feel at home. Rooms are clean, rates are reasonable, location is perfect for motorcycle riding and the pool was the perfect way to end the day. A quiet campfire to relax by at night, toast some hotdogs or marshmallows and on some nights listen to a country/southern rock singer. Staff was friendly and accommodating.... More

My nephew, sister and I spent 4 night at Riverstone back in March. We had one of the large downstairs room. The room had new laminate flooring down which replaced the carpet. Seemed so much more clean with the wood floor. The room had 2 queen beds and a sofa. Prices were great and room just needed a few more... More

My family and I spent four nights here and fell in love with this place. The staff, everyone from the owner to the housekeeping staff, were very friendly and helpful. Every night (at least while we were there) there is a bonfire where you can sit in rocking chairs and talk with some of the other people staying there. Very... More
