This is a great place to stay... if you want peace and quite. We sit out on the balcony over-looking the green and have coffee of a morning.. the on site restaurant is very good too. Very nice... close enough to all the attractions but far away from the hustle and bustle.

I made a return trip to Townsend and stayed here again. It is not bad but will never be mistaken for fancy. I had room 120 which is their handicap room, very large with a small kitchen. If I go back would request this room. It is also right next to the lobby and seems to have better internet connections.

I highly recommend this hotel and will be staying there again soon. There is a restaurant in the parking lot (can't remember the name), walking distance to rooms, in need of some... More

Love staying there. We always do when we are visiting the smokies...especially on the bike. Clean, quiet and layed back. close enough to all the attractions, yet, not in the middle of it. My late wife and I found it to be peaceful, and relaxing to be there.

Cottage #1 has been completely updated and is very comfortable. We had a family reunion there and it easily accommodated all 17 of us using the fold out couches as well as the beds there. One thing I will say is that there only 2 1/2 baths, not 3 baths which can be difficult trying to juggle showers with as... More

We had a three night stay at their Fox Den cottage. I was very clean and cozy. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Their outdoor pool has a salt water filtration system, and that was really nice - no eye burn! We love Townsend - such a nice little town with tons of outdoor activities for all. Try the Tally...
