I spent three days with a photography workshop in and around Great Smoky Mountains National Park and chose the Highland Manor based on the very positive reviews on TripAdvisor (reviews of the "group motel" were very negative). The Highland Manor is very comfortable, exceptionally clean and well maintained -- the carpeting, paint, wallpaper and furnishings in the room were all...

We have been coming to the Smokies for many years and have stayed at the Highland Manor Inn the past two times. We haul our motorcycle and find the gravel lot perfect to park the trailer in. We stayed in an upper room (#219) this time and even though there wasn't a window from which we could see the trailer,...

We just returned from our annual fall escape to the Smokey Mountains. Just made it in time for the Park to reopen. Beautiful weather the three days we were here. On this trip we saw an antlered deer, a bald eagle and a huge black bear standing right beside the road at Cades Cove! We always stay at Highland Manor...

This hotel is a real gem, tucked away high above the main road running through Townsend. It was pricey because I chose to go in the Fall season when everyone comes to see the leaves changing colour. It is spotlessly clean and tidy, set in a quiet area, and the rooms are spacious. Reception staff were kind, friendly and helpful....

Wake up to a lovely view in the Smokies. The Highland Manor is in a serene setting in the Smoky Mtns. at Townsend TN. It is near Marysville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We are repeaters to the Manor, because it offers all the things that are important to us. A lovely setting, friendly staff, cleanliness, spacious paved parking and a...

We are repeat guests. We chose our first stay based on reviews & the close proximity to our home in Illinois. We discovered that Highland Manor has great service, large clean rooms with fridge, microwave, 2 sinks and a wonderful scenic location close to the Smokies, the Cherohala Skyway, the Tail of the Dragon & the Blue Ridge Parkway. Our...

I always return to the Highland Manor Inn for a friendly welcome, fresh rooms, and a beautiful, calm setting! Townsend offers a peaceful respite from the congestion of surrounding areas. The Highland Manor is close to restaurants, on the walking/biking path, and offers lovely views. We enjoyed our coffee on the balcony in the early morning mist, and have made...

Am writing from Highland Manor. Such a pleasant check-in experience -- Paige was so friendly and helpful, a real pleasure to talk to. Our room is a little small, but it is SO clean and comfortable, and we have a nice view of the mtns from our balcony. Love that there are no steps to climb. The only bad thing...

Our second stay at Highland Manor was excellent. Very friendly folks and clean, comfortable accommodations. A convenient location in the beautiful Smoky Mts. to enjoy the piece and quiet away from the crowded tourist areas near yet enough to jump into the crowds if needed. Townsend is low key but has some good choices for eats. Look forward to our...
