Maybe we can't compare it with much because we don't often stay at a cabin-like motel in a town along the highway, but we all thought it was great. First of all, it was incredibly cheap even though it was our spring break just before Easter (Tennessee's had been much earlier). The cabins were large and clean, and the highway... More

My husband and I stayed in Rendevous II cabin at Dock's for four nights over Memorial Day weekend. The cabin was small but extremely clean and very well furnished. The bed was comfortable with nice sheets and the towels were good quality. We used the stove and refrigerator and both worked fine and the cabin had utensils, plates, glasses, etc.... More

This was a great place to stay and an absolutely bargain for the money. We stayed in the motel, but you quickly forget you were in a motel as it felt just like a cabin or cottage inside. The inside has the feel of a log cabin and is laid out in a similar fashion. The room had a full... More

We rented the largest cabin (2 rooms) for 3 nights, 2 families with 5 small kids. Everything worked perfectly and the owners are doing a great job, I can only recommend this Motel for those visiting the quiet side of the Smokeys.

Its nice and quiet. The owners work the desk. Its a little dated, but considering where you are the whole area is a little dated. The rooms are clean and it is very good for the price. There are some cabins also. Some of the cabins have hot tubs which can be a plus. I would stay there again.

We loved our stay! Sweet people, excellent accommodations. Private, quiet, lovely view. In heart of the Smokies. Within a few miles of Tremont and Cades Cove. Gas fire place, fridge, microwave, and kitchen supplies. Wifi and TV. Bring your bike! Townsend has bike trails.

My wife and I stayed in one of the River Cabins and it was very clean and well maintained. The cabin is very cozy and a neat little place to stay. It was right on the river and so peaceful. Walking distance to pretty much everything in Townsend and only about 15 miles or so to Gatlinburg. The best part... More

I stay at Dock's every July. I love this place and the owners. Dock's is located in the center of Townsend and close to Cades Cove. I have never been disappointed. Quiet and the rooms are large and I really like that you can pull right up to your room.
