My husband & I just returned from Dancing Bear Lodge in Townsend, TN--a beautiful, most relaxing resort at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. The lodge is tastefully decorated with twig furniture, comfy leather and fabric sofas, lovely oil paintings, hunt plaid pillows. There were sitting areas that were so private that we felt we were the only ones at the lodge. The bed was a king log bed with the most comfortable featherbed mattress--did not want to leave it! Dinner on Sunday evening was scrumptious served on green pottery from Tennessee. We thought it was a little pricey, but was served so elegantly we forgot the price. Each evening on the large deck overlooking woods was a large outdoor fireplace where we made our own s'mores. Breakfast was the only disappointment, but eating it from the lovely china made you think you were having something more substantial. We did not bicycle this trip, but there are miles of fairly flat paved bicycle trails to the town that we hope to do on another trip. Price was $190 a night. We at first thought this would be our only trip there, but after spending a restful day at the lodge, we decided that we would love to go back there for a retreating week-end. We did exactly what we went to do--get away from the hectic pace of life for a beautiful, relaxing two days. See www.dancingbearlodge.com for pictures. They represent the place accurately.
