We went to Townsend for a nice, quiet Valentine's Day weekend getaway and could not have been more pleased with Riverstone Lodge. The room was very reasonable at an off season rate of $39.95. Check in was easy and the place is very quiet and peaceful. You don't have to hear the noise, traffic, and sirens like in PF or Gatlinburg. There was a restaurant on the premises but we didn't get a chance to eat there although it looked busy each time we went by. Maybe we will eat there next time as we definitely plan to return. There are a few other restaurants and stores close by, but Townsend is the place to stay if you are looking for some much needed R & R without the hustle and bustle of many tourist attractions.
There is an outdoor pool if you plan to go in the summer months. Also there is plenty of tubing and other outdoor sports available nearby. It is 8 miles from Cades Cove and is located at the foothills entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains.
The rooms are plenty spacious and pet friendly and there is no added deposit for your pet. Remember to bring all of your own toiletries including shampoo and hair dryer. Also, there is no phone or wifi hookup in the rooms...remember this motel offers rest and relaxation at its best!
