What Past Guests Are Saying
We rented the main inn as well as the barn house. All of the Inn suites were very nice and the view was spectacular. There were some communication issues (e-mail) with lack of response which caused some confusion. Also, I ended up with less people staying (and did email in advance) but didn't get credit for that. In fairness to the owner I didn't pursue this because we all had a nice time. However, she had told me she would adjust based on the actual number of folks who stayed (I rented both buildings completely) and she never did. The main inn was very nice with ample room and views to die for. It's a quiet and relaxed setting. If you are looking for quiet and views this will give it to you. No fancy amenities but above-average. Enjoyed out stay. Would like better communication though.
Country Manor acres is simply a beautiful, quaint peaceful retreat with views of the Smoky Mountains and is located at the entrance to the National Park.
April Jopling, the owner, shares her love and passion of her home nestled in the countryside in charming Townsend. The location is great, only 30 minutes from nearby towns of Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, which caters to the tourist. No need to fret over the winding hillsides to climb when you can find Country Manor right off the service road. We stayed in the Octagon Guest Suite which features a hot tub on the deck overlooking the mountains. It was breathe taking to wake up to the sunrise peaking out of the Smoky Mountains when looking out our patio door. Our room was spacious, yet cozy, especially by the fireplace, very clean and comfortable. This is no Bed & Breakfast but a Bed & Kitchen which allows you to have fun cooking on the grill or in the furnished kitchen while saving $75-$150 per couple. A great bargain for the price. If you are looking for Rest and Relaxation, beautiful scenery, hiking and biking trails and ponds to fish, this is the place.
The sweetest place we've ever stayed in the Smokies
We traveled to the Smokies for our 25th wedding anniversary. We found Country Manor online and decided to give it a try. It is so peaceful and beautiful there. We had a room with a mini kitchen and full bath with a jacuzzi. Our room also had a balcony with a beautiful view. The room was clean and comfortable. We loved it there and we will be going back soon.
Will be looking forward to my next time to go back again.
All three suites are nice, each with their own special touch, but since we were there for 4 days this time, I thought the full kitchen, barbeque grill and deck would be good as we had more time to enjoy the meals. The Upper Suites have good kitchenette areas for a couple of days, but I enjoy cooking and my husband enjoys eating.
This time we stayed in the Octagon suite. This Octagon Suite is a place I could positiivley live in year around. We love to eat outside on the deck, so we can enjoy the fantastic view of the Smoky Mountain Foothills, while we are having a few drinks after dinner. But having the full kitchen facilities inside, makes the eating outside a lot easier.
The Upper Suites had a great two-person jacuzzi, but this time we had friends staying near by. They came one evening and enjoyed the big, four-person hot tub with us. We had the space to prepare a meal for all of us.
The many scenic acres around this place, allow you to really enjoy the beauty that you come for, and you feel like you are not having to share it with the people next door. We will come back, possibly in a different season. It would be nice to have the days a little cooler than august, but the evenings were still lovely.
satisfying stay in a working environment
I've stayed at Country Manor Guest Suites on several occasions, including in three of the four guest suites. I usually travel alone and mostly in winter. This was my first trip in summer by myself.
Summer has a totally different feel. The owner stays busy with six horses, mowing, and outdoor weddings. Everyone is busy all day long. Although the exterior is dusty and "gritty" from the surroundings, my interior accommodations were superb! I stayed in a suite which included all of the same excellent accommodations as on previous trips. The suite was clean, neat, and included refrigerator, microwave and coffee station as well as plenty of space to spread out. I didn't have to bring my laptop this time but there was internet access and a space to set up inside the suite.
The owner has developed several picnic sites throughout the property with tables and small grills so that groups can get together for outdoor meals in shady spots with beautiful views. (Good places to read a book.) There are plenty of places for interesting walks and the distant church bells chime the time. It very much reminded me of the years I spent in Europe -- but with an american country twist.
I would recommend this place for small groups who want to spend time with each other in a beautiful environment where the work continues on around you. Children have plenty of room to roam, hills to roll down, horses to admire, and a pond to explore. But it is also a place that is comfortable for a woman to get away by herself. It feels safe.

Absolutely the most wonderful place to stay in Townsend,TN
We first contacted april Jopling in February 2009 concerning having our honeymoon there. There were a lot of details to go over as my soon-to-be wife was from England and I was from Mississippi. Miss april patiently listened to all our requests and also made a great deal of wonderful suggestions. We actually got married on the property and also spent our honeymoon there. Miss april and Mr Reid took care of all the details, including recommending a minister, telling us where to go for the marriage license, even suggesting different people who could make the wedding cake and a place where my wife could get her hair and nails done. The Joplings, including their son who was home from tour, went well and above in their help to make our honeymoon the most spectacular that it could be. They even took care of the after wedding meal...complete with a waiter, wine, and a completely mouth-watering meal, combined with simply the most stunning views in all of Townsend, Tennessee. Miss april and Mr. Reid took a very personal dedication in making sure that our Wedding went off without a hitch.They even suggested a great (and very reasonable ) photagrapher. We couldn't have asked for a more amazing place or more wonderful people to help with our special day. Because of their commitment to making sure that we had everything we needed to make our stay the most perfect that it could be, we have since visited and stayed at Country Manor acres numerous times. We would never even consider staying anywhere else during our regular Mountain vacations. The Joplings and Country Manor acres have earned our trust, friendship, and devoted loyalty for their dedication in providing truly the most unique and wonderful place to stay in the entire Smoky Mountain area.
We highly recommend this as the most wonderful place to stay in the Smoky Mountains!
