About Us

Welcome to the Highland Manor Inn – meeting all of your lodging needs in Townsend, TN and the Great Smoky Mountain area. The Highland Manor Inn was built by the owners, Don and Sandy in 1982.

They wanted to be self-employed and the idea of a motel in Townsend, near the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park sounded like a good decision, one that could support their family. 42 years later they are still at it, providing excellent lodging and meeting facilities, meeting and getting to know many, many folks who travel to the Smokies. It’s enjoyable, come see why.
