Lodging Smoky Mountains


Our Smoky Mountain resort and cabin rentals offer various styles and sizes of accommodations to meet most needs and budgets, from our spacious Le Conte Cabin to the Evergreen Cottage. No matter the amenities and lodging features, each space at Dancing Bear Lodge sets the stage for a rejuvenating experience and fond memories yet to be made.

Full-Service Lodging & Amenities

Dancing Bear Lodge offers a level of rustic comfort and service that sets it apart from what many have come to expect from cabin rentals or standard hotels in the Townsend, TN area. We are a full-service Lodge with hotel-like amenities such as daily housekeeping, WiFi, fireplaces, pillow topped mattresses, hot tubs, fresh ground Dancing Bean coffee and continental breakfast. You’ll find your accommodations stocked with conditioning shampoo, soap, lotion, and other essentials. Our cabins and cottages with full kitchens are supplied with all cooking and dinnerware, as well as delicious, fresh ground, and locally roasted coffee- the “Special Appalachian Blend” from Dancing Bean Coffee Co. Just like staying in a Townsend, TN hotel, you don’t have to bring anything from home except yourself and your clothes — just relax and let the serenity soak in.

Step Into The Smokies

Our Smoky Mountain Resort is your base camp for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, located just minutes from our property. Guests love the proximity to this tranquil and peaceful National Park, home to over 187,000 acres of Appalachian forest, which includes hundreds of miles of rivers, lakes, streams, wildlife habitats and more. There is no wonder as to why our gorgeous area is referred to as the Peaceful Side of the Smokies.
