This lodge is on 60 acres of beautiful property. It is quiet, and just outside the entrance to the "Smokey Mountains". The scenery from our extra large deck was as wonderful as anywhere in the Smokey Mountains. We just loved sitting on the deck eating breakfast or reading a book. This is in the quaint small town of Townsend, which has a few very nice restaurants. The town of Townsend is nothing like the other Tennessee entrance to the Smokey Mountains (Gatlinberg and Pigeon Forge). If you want a hugh amount of kid activities then find a place in Pidgeon Forge. Pidgeon Forge was way too busy and noisy for me. On the other hand Country Manor Acres and the town of Townsend was relaxing and a place you can reallly enjoy nature. The owners of Country Manor are very hospitiable and charming. They are happy to show off their fine property. The rates were also very reasonble. This is a GREAT value.
