A marvelous Smoky Mountain getaway

4.2 on May 14, 2016

This April was our third visit to the Richmond Inn and just as enjoyable and memorable as the first. We particularly love the William Bartram room, along with all the amenities of the Inn. Jim & Susan are very attentive to their guests needs, as is the entire staff. We WILL be back. Thank you for a sensational visit.

Richmont Getaway

3.4 on April 28, 2016

Very nice and peaceful. It was what my husband and I needed for a relaxing vacation. The view of Richmont from our balcony was just wonderful. Only disappointment was that the owners did not honor our total gift card, They would only take part, so that left us with more expense than we anticipated. I hope this doesn't happen at our next B & B.

Wonderful weekend away for this couple!

4.8 on April 07, 2016

This has been a very busy and challenging season in our lives and we were given the opportunity to have a weekend away. So, very last-minute we planned a getaway and found the Richmont Inn online. The long weekend was wonderful! Jim and Susan were so welcoming and excellent hosts. We loved the fondue dinner, the breakfasts & desserts were delicious, and the room and view were better than expected. We loved not having a TV in our room so we could relax and talk without the distraction! We stayed in the William Bartram room, which has a great view of the mountains. We would definitely come back and hope to do so in the next few years!

I booked this B&B to be in a quiet secluded place ... and it was that and more. We arrived late (9 pm) and we had not eaten yet and the owner prepared us a picnic and we lit the fire and relaxed in our lovely room. We woke up with the sun rising over the mountains and our view from the Lucy Morgan room was amazing. Then we had a lovely breakfast - again with amazing views. We were there at the end of March - so the dogwoods were blooming and the birds chirping....I recommend it highly.

March in the Mountains

We always thoroughly enjoy our visits to The Richmont Inn...the atmosphere is wonderful, we enjoy the fact that the busy-ness of life is left at the bottom of the hill and doesn't intrude on the peaceful times at the Inn. Thank you!!

Aging Charm

4.6 on March 23, 2016

We have stayed at the Richmont Inn 4 times in 10 years. This is our honeymoon getaway. While small changes are obvious each time we visit, this last visit revealed some obvious aging to the building but also in the owners and staff. None of this is negative, but definitely a part of the experience. Some minor updates to furniture and outside building maintenance would go a long way in improving the Richmont Inn. Overall, the award winning breakfast and evening dessert made our stay romantic and restful. We will continue to visit the Richmont Inn often and encourage anyone planning a visit to the Smokies to stay on the peaceful side in Townsend, TN and the Richmont Inn.

Quiet Inn

3.6 on January 23, 2016

The front desk person, Trent made you feel very welcomed. Jodie, cook, chambermaid of the inn was also very pleasant to talk with. The breakfast were good but unfortunately due to the time of year that's all we had for a meal at the inn. We had several lady bugs that liked to camp out in our room since it was cold outside. The room was beautiful. We did get to meet the owner the last morning we ate breakfast. He also is a pleasant man. Sadly they will be selling the inn. Hope they can find a new owner that will carry on the traditions and bring some new ones to Richmont

Pleasant experience in the Smokies

We have stayed at the Richmont Inn twice and would return. The rooms are very comfortable and we especially enjoy the delicious evening desserts. Jim is a warm and friendly innkeeper.

Just a few things we had problems with: 1. there was a smell in the place when we first arrived that was unpleasant 2. the floor in the bathroom was squeaky 3. last morning of our visit (Monday) there was no hot water for our shower

Great Stay in the Smokies!

Quiet Getaway

My wife enjoyed a quiet getaway to this wonderful B&B near Cades Cove. Just what the doctor ordered. Perfect combination of rustic and romantic! Would we return? YES!

Serene Spot with home-grown care.

4.2 on October 21, 2015

My wife and I needed a quiet getaway with good food and a beautiful space. Richmont Inn delivered both. There was a mistake in our lunch order for the backpack picnic, but they graciously took care of us in a very awesome way. Service was always with a big smile, and it felt sort of like eating breakfast in my own kitchen...homey, delicious food, and Susan's granola... AMAZING. We're a couple in our 30's, but let me tell you, go here, take a break, and enjoy the quiet side of the Smokey Mountains. Thank you Richmont Inn!

Excellend stay in the Great Smokey Moutains

3.8 on September 30, 2015

We enjoyed our experience staying at Richmont Inn. We did receive a disappointment upon check-in as made reservations for the Saturday evening fondue dinner as we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Jim, the owner, contacted our home telephone number the day prior to check-in and we were already on the road. We had ordered the picnic basket for our next day of driving, so the Inn prepared our picnic and we ate it and had a bottle of wine on our room's back deck. Recommend you cancel your fondue dinner a bit sooner so individuals already on the road traveling can alter their dinner reservations. We did book this Inn solely on the fact we could have dinner and wine to celebrate our anniversary and wouldn't have to drive after drinking alcohol. Once again, it was an excellent stay. We did receive evening dessert and coffee, which all guests receive.

Relax in the Smokies

We couldn't have asked for more during our stay at the Richmount Inn. Great Service, Great Food, Beautiful Setting, quiet , peaceful and refreshing.

Charming authenticity.

4.0 on August 22, 2015

The place is truly charming and authentic with great views. The rooms are clean and airy. The service is great. We had a beautiful stay with our 5 kids. There is no dining on site. Just complimentary desert by candlelight and good breakfast.

Beautiful getaway

I absolutely loved the Richmont Inn. After touring the other rooms, I realized that each one creates a distinct, quaint environment. Many even have jacuzzi tubs for two! Jim, the owner, was so nice. My boyfriend and I had such a nice time. We didn't want to leave! The only thing you should be aware of is that they only serve dinner on the weekends. During the week you have to dine in town. However, they do offer complementary dessert and coffee at night and a wonderful, home cooked breakfast. Richmont Inn is a must see!!

Beautiful views. Lovely breakfast (love the homemade granola!) Really more of a "country inn" than a bed and breakfast in my opinion. Only grumble would be the dogs barking right under our window at 7 am.

The Inn was so relaxing and our stay was just the perfect setting for our anniversary. We hiked the Great Smoky Mountains and soaked in the spa tub after a relaxing candlelight dessert each evening. A delicious breakfast got us ready for our daily hikes. We will go back...A+++++++

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The room was spotless and comfortable. The views are breathtaking! The innkeepers were delightful! The breakfasts served were outstanding. I highly recommend staying here! We plan on going back again in the near future.
