We have been going there for at least 10 years now, we have spent holidays, celebrated birthdays, and just weekend get away no other place in the smokies would I rather be than visiting here! Very close to Cades Cove, also you can bicycle thru the town, also has some great restaurants very close by.

Room Tip: the older side, like little cabins

We love Riverstone Lodge! Our families have been vacationing here for around 12 years. (or more ) It's family friendly and very affordable. The rooms have everything you need and most important, they are super clean! We've rented Jack's Shack and Annie's Hideaway here at Riverstone Lodge too. The Riverstone Restaurant is always delicious! It's rare to find restaurants that serve food that taste like it's fresh out of your kitchen. The people are super nice and ready to accommodate your needs. I always recommend this place to my family and friends. I also love that it's nestled between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. You have the convenience of all the attractions, but your out of the extreme traffic. Wonderful place! You're missing out if don't give this place a try. Ps....Riverstone Restaurant is just a few steps away from your room. Happy New Year and God Bless!

We decided to get away for a couple days and where do we chose, our home away from home. Never never disappoints when we come to The Riverstone. Rocking chairs, great food at their restaurant right next door, rocking chairs, clean wonderful rooms, rocking chairs, fire each night with rocking chairs and best of all, Belinda and Terry are wonderful people that go out of their way to make your stay perfect. Every year we meet our best friends here and gather together for a week and then we come back during the year every chance we can get. This should definitely be your choice hotel in Townsend. Right next to Cades Cove!!!!!

Riverstone Lodge is the best place to stay in Townsend. It's very close to Cade's Cove not far from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The rooms are nice and clean. Staff is awesome, go above and beyond on service. I love the comfy, down home atmosphere. Beautiful grounds, fire pit every night, rocking chairs just outside room doors. The restaurant has the best food around here and remember showing your room key gets you a discount. As for me and my family we won't stay anywhere besides Riverstone Lodge and you should too .

I have been to Riverstone for family vacations for the last 7 years. It is a very nice place to stay with a just like home environment. Everyone is friendly and it's just like running into old friends every year when we go back! The owners are very nice people. I Definitely recommend riverstone lodge as well as the family restaurant next door!
