A real delight to visit here and stay on Townsend side of Smoky Mts. This is older establishment that has had some rennovations and additions, the room we chose was the cheaper straight eight" room all we needed was a bed to sleep in and bathroom. as we did not spend much time in it. Very quaint and clean, hardwood floor and old tile in bathroom shower. it was clean and Great for us! The bed was high old fashioned style and linens were comfortable and clean. the greatest thing is the POOL. it is heated and very nice. we swam after dark and after a rainstorm. we had the whole pool to ourselves and it was just very nice! there is a grocery store close about 1mile or so down the road to get snacks, beer, etc. we ate pizza at Pizza hut next to grocery IGA store. Warning, all things are closed up by 10pm, so purchase what you want before that time. It really is very quiet and relaxing, you will enjoy that Cades Cove is so close by and an easy drive to it the following morning! Just a nice place to relax, swim and rest a bit. no shopping or hub bub here. Recommended that you call the talley Ho directly to make reservation rather than on-line, as they can provide you with same discounts and as owners, it is more profitable for them in this manner. You will not be disappointed if you like quiet, however if you want more selection and night life, this is not the place for you.
