Richmont Inn
Ranked #2 of 5 Townsend B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 10, 2013

My friend and I stayed at the Richmont Inn for her birthday. Of course it would be a wonderful romantic place for couples, but it was also great for a girls weekend away. Get away from the TV and take in the amazing views, watch the birds, experience the delicious breakfasts and evening desserts. Most people check out nearby "Cades Cove" but since we had already been there, we asked our host Jim to recommend a short hike. He sent us to a nearby area (easy for him, not so much for us couch potatoes!) but a beautiful falls rewarded us at the end of the 1 or 2 mile climb. The rooms are named for historical people and beautifully decorated accordingly. There is a scrapbook in the common area with pictures of the building being built that is fascinating. They offer a 4 course fondue with or without a wine pairing, but I highly recommend the pairing. If you have never experienced a pairing of food and wine, this will spoil you! It was perfection! Since I love dogs, I asked for a visit with the Westies and was introduced to "Andrew", who was all champion and he knew it! What a cool dude!!! When Jim and Susan found out I had to leave early on Sunday and would miss breakfast they fixed me a breakfast to go that was really nice to have on my drive back home. I can't say enough good things about the Townsend area, this B&B and the wonderfully kind people who run it.

Room Tip: We had the Lucy Morgan room which had a wonderful view but I would love to come back and stay in the...

My husband and I stayed and the Nancty Ward Suite, very comfortable and cozy. Delicious breakfast, very caring staff. Candelight dessert every night was amazing. We liked the fact that the inn is close to the Smokey Mountains but not too close to be crowded. While there,we visited Glatinburg and we were pleased to have made the decision of staying away from it. Yes, there are plenty of restaurants and entertainment which there aren't in Townsed but if you are looking for nature and peace go to Townsend and stay at the Richmont Inn.

My wife and I were finally able to visit this peaceful Inn near Townsend TN. We first saw the Inn almost 20 years ago and treated my in-laws to a stay. They loved it and so did we. Jim and his wife have appointed the rooms to commemorate various individuals. Each room is unique. The Kahlua creme brulee evening desert is wonderful. They tailored the breakfast to fit our gluten-free need, and it was delicious. Relaxing, peaceful, perfect couples get away Inn!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sequoyah room on the top floor, complete with wood burning fireplace!

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.
