“Charming and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

A very peaceful getaway on the quiet side of the Smokies. The inn is well laid out, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The location is convenient to Cades Cove and the charming town of Townsend. If you want to avoid the mess that is Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, this is your destination. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the grounds and the outside of the inn are starting to show some wear and tear. The waterfalls weren't running - just pools of stagnant water and the external woodwork needs a new coat. But don't let that stop you - the innkeeper is very friendly, the staff is great, and the breakfasts were delicious. A special treat is coffee and dessert served every night!

We stayed here the night of our wedding and the day after. We love the bed, and the sheets especially. The room was very clean, and they brought us roses when they realized we has just gotten married. I am currently staying sitting on the balcony, overlooking the valley , which is beautiful, and enjoying the sounds of crickets and frogs. The lightning bugs are everywhere, and I can see every star in the sky. My husband brought me a yummy breakfast in bed that consisted of an egg bake with Brie cheese and fresh fruit. I love the quiet, private atmosphere. There are not many guests here this weekend, but I like that we have had so much privacy. I used the jacuzzi tub, and it has wonderful jets and a mixture of bath herbs to mix in it and they smelled great. The owner brought creme brûlée to our room in the evening in a lovely heart shaped dish. I don't really understand the negative reviews, it truly is beautiful, peaceful, and laid back. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have some quiet peaceful time with their significant other.

Celebrating an anniversary in " The peaceful side if the Smokies"- Townsend, TN. Long weekend at the Richmont Inn cannot have been more comfortable, more relaxing, and more welcoming! The Bartram Room has an incredible view of the mountains, with an outdoor porch. So far, the food, and evening desserts(all homemade) has been amazing. Jim, the owner, has an amazing grasp of the history of the area. And Samantha is an absolute gem- a very outgoing personality, a charming conversationalist, is very personable, and really care about her guests. We WILL be back. Oh, and the area is prolific with critters and beauty.

Room Tip: Ask for the mountain view rooms.

Beautiful setting for this B&B. Staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful (especially Sam). Enjoyed the picnic lunch.

Stayed in the Nancy Ward room, which is a spacious suite. It has a relaxing balcony.

This is a good option, if it is in your price range.

We recently celebrated my birthday at the Richmont Inn, a unique B&B located in scenic Townsend "the quiet side of the Smoky Mountains". The host and hostess were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The Inn itself is very interesting, the design being a cantilevered barn. It is much larger on the inside than it looks from the outside. I believe there are 14 guest rooms. We stayed in the Captain John Stuart room which was located on the 2nd floor. All of the guest rooms are decorated with a historical theme. Ours included a Jacuzzi tub, which was much appreciated! As this is a quiet time of the year, there was only one other couple at the Inn, and dinner was not available. Not a problem, since it was a short drive into Townsend. They did serve a delicious crème brulee dessert, and the breakfast was excellent - we had "bananas foster" French toast, fruit and delicious bacon. We really enjoyed talking with Jim and Susan HInd, who built and manage the inn. We had a wonderful stay, and highly recommend the Richmont Inn to anyone who is looking for some peach and quiet in a beautiful setting.

My wife and I recently visited Richmont Inn. We've been several times but each visit I'm reminded why we come back. Richmont is a wonderful place. The staff and owners are focused on service and attention to the guests. We happened to be there on New Years Eve and New Years Day and enjoyed a dulcimer concert on New Year's Eve on the main floor of the Inn. The food was excellent each morning as well as the candlelight deserts each night. We had the Fondue dinner on New Years Eve - which was excellent. The service was excellent during the dinner.

We will continue to come back to the Richmont Inn as we love all the staff, the food as well as the great rooms. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are kept very clean. As we were leaving Jim walked us to our car with an umbrella as it was raining.

We can't wait until our next visit.

Room Tip: We have only stayed in rooms in the main Inn. We love the Robert Mize room as we've stayed in t...

Great experience all the way around. Elegant and children friendly. Glass
dining area has epic views. Jim has a great eye for graphic and fine art and it shows. The rooms are themed and the good art reinforces the themes. Real fireplaces. Gourmet dessert and breakfast was included. I normally don't stay in places this nice but it is a good value for a memorable,warm in the cold,beautiful inside and out Inn . Event capabilities too I think
