When my Wife and I go to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge, we always stay at the Highland Manor. It is only @ 20 min ride to Pigeon Forge and the scenery is breath-taking. The Owners/Staff at the Highland Manor are always courteous, friendly and make us welcome. The grounds and rooms

Thank you for writing a review of the Highland Manor Inn and for your kind words about us and our staff. It gives us much pleasure to provide clean, comfortable, and safe accommodations for folks traveling to the Great Smoky Mountains. And we love it when so many folks come back year after year and want 'their room'. We have one couple who even put 'Rm 229' on their license plate! They were from FL, but live here in Townsend now. Highland Manor Inn was their 'home away from home' and we're glad you made it yours too. Looking forward to seeing you again.

Thank you for writing a review about the Highland Manor Inn. We are glad you liked the beds. We have our mattresses special made to specs that we know give a good night's sleep to most people. We have had people want to buy the mattress they slept on while they were here. We can't do that, but we did refer them to where we have them made. Late fall and winter are two good seasons to visit Townsend. Without the leaves on the trees you can really see how beautiful the mountains are. We do hope you will travel this way again and stay with us!

The location is perfect. We had a nice view of the Smoky Mountains but that was about as good as it got. The room was clean as far as dust and the bathroom go but I woke up every morning with a headache and I believe it was from the moldy smell in our room. There was what looked

Thank you for writing a review about the Highland Manor Inn. I am glad you enjoyed the view of the mountains from your balcony room. I am sorry that you got headaches from the room and believe there was mold in your room. I wish you would have told me about it while you were here so we could have investigated. Being here for multiple nights, we probably could have moved you to a different room. Water leaks are always a possibility, and we have had some in the past. If you would, please, give me a call so I can take a closer look at the room you were in. My housekeeping staff does an excellent job keeping the rooms clean and the maintenance team works hard to keep everything working properly. We want our guests to be glad they visited the Highland Manor Inn so they'll want to come back to stay with us again someday.

Friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are basic with a refrigerator; a coffee pot is available upon request. The continental breakfast is fine, nothing special. Great location for accessing the Smoky Mountains National Park. It has a pool and hot tub which were kept clean.

Thank you for writing a review about the Highland Manor Inn. We like it when our guests tell others about their experience here with us. The reviews when looked at collectively, give fellow travelers good ideas and a good perspective on the places where they in turn might like to stay when visiting the Smokies. We hope you will come back and see us someday. Our pool is an outdoor pool and the second pool on the deck is a kiddie pool. All of our Hot Tubs are private, and are located in some of our rooms.

Thank you for writing a review about the Highland Manor Inn. I am glad you were able to stay with us for the photo workshop. We host several different photographers each spring and fall and welcome each one to our Inn and the beautiful Smoky Mountains. My husband and I built the Inn in 1982 and cherish the opportunities we have had to meet with so many expert, and up and coming experts, in the field of photography. If you want to send us some of your pictures, we will put them on our website, including your credit and contact information. Maybe we can drum up some business for you! By the way, we always brew Colombian coffee. We look forward to your return.

Hi Is this hotel walking distance to the town centre please?
We are pretty much in the Center of Townsend. It is an easy walk up the walking/biking trail to the post office and about the same for more restaurants in either direction from our Inn.

Is the pool open now or closed for the season?
I have just now read your question and I apologize for not seeing it earlier. Our pool is outdoors and is seasonal. The bravest of souls first swim in April and lastly in late September. We keep the pool and deck open all year and it is lovely to sit up there on warm, sunny winter days!
