“YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Save the money and treat yourself to an amazing weekend or week night stay at the Richmont. We absolutely love this little gem and we are hesitant to actually tell friends and family about it because we don't want it to be crowded when we come back. Mr. Jim is about the nicest man and friendliest host we have ever had. The inn is adorable and cozy and tucked in the woods. We loved the breakfast, we actually compare all other breakfast that we eat to the Richmont. They have their own bacon recipe and the call it the Richmont bacon, and it is manna from Heaven. The lovely grounds and all the wild birds and animals are such a treat. The Lucy Morgan room is perfect for two people to really enjoy a peaceful stay in a comfortable bed. Give Mr. JIm a hug, trust me, he is worth it.

Room Tip: Almost all rooms have a private balcony, but the Lucy Morgan room has the best view!

It's been many months since we've stayed here, but our remembrance is of a very peaceful side (they say that at the Inn) of the Smoky Mountains. Our room gave us a scenic panorama of Fall colors in October. The design, as a historic Appalachian cantilever barn, was something you just have to see to believe. But a barn it is not. Inside, the innkeepers were the essence of charm as hosts. All in all, it was a time to remember. One we have not forgotten. You will find it capturing your heart as well.

Room Tip: Rooms will either have a view of the mountains, the forest, the valley, the garden, or may have a co...

We stayed on the last evening of our 2 week holiday. We visited Cades Cove at Jim's suggestion, which we would otherwise have missed, and was really worth the drive, we even saw a bear in the distance. We ate at the Golf Club, again at Jim's suggestion, which was a very short drive and enjoyed an excellent meal. We had a lovely room, although had we booked earlier we would have chosen one of the rooms with a view of the mountains but unfortunately they were all booked up. The setting is beautiful and peaceful and was an ideal way to end our trip. The icing on the cake was the creme brulee at the end of the evening served by candlelight, it was quite magical. Jim was the perfect host and we absolutely loved the place.

My family enjoyed a 3 night stay here in October and we very impressed with the Inn, everything topnotch! We loved the quiet area of Townsend not far from the more touristy Gatlinburg and minutes away from our main attractions, horseback riding, Tuckaleechee Caverns & Cades Cove. Our timing was great, the color at higher elevations was stunning. You will certainly enjoy the breakfast and the delicious desserts as well as the beautiful property and charming rooms.

This was our first time to stay at the Richmont Inn ... but it won't be our last. A great place to just get away and relax with the scenic Smokey Mountains as your background. From the Saturday night dessert experience to the breakfast on Sunday morning, the owners made us feel like we were part of their family. Food is excellent! The room was just fantastic. Your room has all the things you need to make it a relaxing, enjoyable experience. Don't miss staying here!

We stayed at Richmont Inn for two nights in November of last year. The place is amazing with breathtaking views of the mountains. The inn has a nice rustic charm to it complete with all the amenities. The food was excellent especially the breakfast. Complete with candle light and fireplace, coffee deserts was the best part. Jim was an exceptional host.

This was my first stay at Richmont Inn. It was initially built about 20 years ago, and I remember hearing about it over the years so glad I was able to finally visit (I live about an hour away). I stayed in the main building and my room had a beautiful view of the mountains. The room was very nice and appeared to be very clean. The owner,Jim, was especially nice and gracious. I would say the grounds need some attention and tidying up a bit. None of the water features appeared to be working and there was damage to one of the buildings on the property from a lightening strike and was waiting repair work and the main building was having some work done as well. The breakfast was a little disappointing - the stuffed french toast...way too sweet for me, but they did offer yogurt and cereal. I've stayed in many B&B's over the years and have had some fantastic breakfasts..so that's what I'm comparing it with. All in all it was fine, but the owners just need to do some TLC around the grounds.

Room Tip: If you're staying here, you should get a room with the mountain view.
