We were greeted with a friendly welcome as we checked into this wonderful inn. The rooms were so comfortable, clean, and beautifully furnished which was a definite compliment to our peaceful surroundings. Such a beautiful setting in the Smoky Mountains near Townsend, TN.
We had a scrumptious breakfast waiting for us when we began our day and a delicious dessert before retiring for the evening. It was a great get-a-way for my husband and I.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Savor the Great Smoky Mountains ensconced in the most beautiful setting imaginable. Charming, elegant Richmont Inn, private and surrounded by forest, offers a relaxing, intimate "away-from-it-all" ambiance, ten minutes from the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Mountain panache at its best, rustic accents, such as wide-planked and slate floors and high exposed-beam ceilings, rub shoulders with 18th-century English antiques and French paintings. Attention to detail is punctuated by gracious and responsive service. Guest rooms honor Appalachian notables, with decor capturing individual mountain cultures and history. Breathtaking views of the Smokies, private balconies, spa tubs, woodburning fireplaces and a nature trail are but a few of the Inn's flourishes. A full sumptuous complimentary breakfast served in the main dining room allows you to take in the panoramic view of the Smokies in tree house fashion. International cuisine varies each day: French Baked Eggs, Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes with maple syrup, French Toast L'Orange with rum-soaked bananas, to name a few. Find homemade granola, crunchy shredded wheat, numerous dried fruits, yogurt and freshly squeezed orange juice at the beautifully laid breakfast bar. Come nightfall, return to the main dining room to partake in a candlelight ritual of award-winning gourmet desserts and flavored coffees. Make plans for the mouth-watering classic Swiss fondue dinner served in the Cove Cafe & Wine Bar, truly a dining experience to tuck away in the memory book. You can order the delightful Inn picnic to take on your pursuits. ... more less
