The main reason for our trip was to attend the Ky.- Tenn. fotball game a couple of days after thanksgiving. When we first decided to go to the Knoxville area, I started to look for a place to stay. I began looking at cabins, which were numerous and most were fairly expensive. I remembered that we had stayed at Top of Townsend in 2000 and that we had enjoyed ourselves. When I looked at their website I was amazed that they had not changed much, and even more suprised that the price was still the same as in 2000. We stayed in Bear's paw the price was $120 per night. This price was very reasonable for a 2 bedroom cabin. The cabin was very clean and well kept . They even had the fire place set up with wood and ready to light. Firewood had been stacked outside the cabin for us to use. If you really want a quiet Smoky Mountain experience away from the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, but still close to the park you cannnot find a better place. I highly reccommend the Top of Townsend , and plan to stay there again.
