Dancing Bear Lodge, Townsend
Amazing Hideaway Close to Great Smoky Mountains NP
While we had high hopes for Dancing Bear after the initial booking, we immediately decided to extend our reservation by one night after actually arriving and seeing the villa. Simple modern design combined with a woodland setting made this the perfect place for our time in the Smokies. In the room, we particularly loved the large shower and reusable cutlery and flatware (unlike the usual amount of waste that's generated by single use products). Breakfast in the nearby bistro was excellent (the granola is memorable) and we enjoyed an equally delicious dinner there one evening of our stay as well. Hotel staff was excellent in taking care of a slight issue with our extended booking. I honestly would return here again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful getaway
Great cabin. I wish the bistro would have been open both for dinner and breakfast.

We had a great time at Dancing Bear Lodge! We really enjoed our Villa and the walking trails located beside it. Also, the muffins that were left in our fridge for us we’re so good! We will definitely be back!
