We had a blast with Mike and the crew during the Townsend Winter Beer Fest last month. We were greeted with a basket of coffee and snacks. We had a choice of a cottage, but chose to stay in a king room. The room was spacious, and very clean (seemed to be updated recently) and comfortable. We hung out by...

Second time here and second time for a cabin while our daughter stayed in her own room. Family owned, very friendly and accommodating. A welcome basket is brought to every room with either coffee or tea as a beverage. Very clean and up-dated although I know this place has been around for awhile. You would never know it. I will...

This is a great locally owned motel with very friendly staff and all the amenities you need when you're there to enjoy the The Smokey Mountains. Upon check-in you will receive a "goodie" basket with sweet and savory snacks. The rooms are clean and it's great to sit in the rocking chairs on the front porch and just enjoy the...

I loved this quiet, convenient, comfortable inn. Although the looks of it are old from the exterior, the rooms are updated, spacious, nicely appointed with comfy beds. It is an easy drive from here to Pigeon Forge or to Cades Cove. The downside would be not having a place to eat at the inn. However, they do provide a continental...

Because of seasonal closings in this area I had to try a new place. This place is well constructed and clean. Because of the seasonal nature of their business, there were very few (3) people staying here. The room appeared to have been recently remodeled.

My husband and I were taking a few days off and decided to stay in Townsend because it is so quiet and this time of year it is not very busy. Take note that many restaurants are closed for the season though We really enjoyed staying at Gateway. The rooms are newly decorated and very comfortable. The owners are wonderful...

I emailed late one night to get a reservation and was called back within 30 minutes to book! Was completely shocked with the quick response. When we arrived the front desk was more than accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed (including the inclusive snacks that my child could eat) we usually camp but because of the season...

Very cute, newly renovated motel set off the main road in quiet Townsend. We only stayed one night and the location was ideal for our visit to Cades Cove. Wonderful place to completely relax in the Great Smokey Mountains. Owners were very friendly and extremely helpful on check-in offering advice on local restaurants and supermarkets. They also provided a gift...
