From the moment we walked in the door, we knew this was the place for us. We stayed here with our four adult daughters and their families, including our three grandsons and our little dog, Cole. I loved cooking for everyone in the fully-equipped kitchen - it had all the cookware I could possibly want. The grown-up kids had a great time in the game room - they stayed up late playing pool, ping pong and Catch Phrase. The view from the deck is amazing, Cole and I sat out there for hours listening to the cows and roosters and church bells, watching grandson Jack find lizards, ladybugs, lightning bugs and butterflies. We enjoyed it so much we barely left, but we did the Cades Cove Loop, seeing bears and deer, and picnicked on Sunday in Metcalf Bottoms and playing in the river. Convenient to town, but away from the traffic noise - perfect! We've been staying in Townsend for 40 years for our annual family reunions and this is the best place we've ever stayed. Already have our reservations for next year! Thanks so much for sharing with us.
