Do not hesitate to stay at BW Cades Cove Inn, Townsend TN. The complimentary breakfast is much better than any other chain hotel in which I have stayed.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was our first time staying in Townsend and will not be our last. It is so quiet and the lack of traffic is great. The breakfast is very good here. It is a great location to get to other areas quickly without all of the crowds.

This is a good place to stay if you are going to visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The park entrance is a few miles away. The hotel offers a good breakfast in addition to a clean room and a comfortable bed.

Local music and craft festivals brought us here. We found a new restaurant to enjoy just across the highway from the motel -The Steak House. Absolutely superb quality food and staff. We will revisit this area more often because of this weekend.
