We enjoyed 3 nights at the Richmont Inn (bed and breakfast) in Townsend TN. We wanted to go to the Smokies, and to see Cades Cove. We had read that staying in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg would involve a lot of busy tourist areas, and that Townsend was very quiet.
We found the Richmont Inn to be very relaxing for our stay. They are located about half mile from a golf course, which is open to the public. We are not golfers, but this course would be convenient for those wanting to play. This was just what we needed, a quiet getaway. We stayed in the main lodge, but we also walked down to see the "chalet rooms". This is a separate building that has 4 bedrooms (I think), and that building also has a "commons room" with a beautiful view. That chalet would be a great place for a family that needed those rooms, maybe to put the kids to bed....and then the adults could stay up and visit or play cards in that commons room.
We recommend this place.
