Touted as the “vacation basecamp of the Smokies,” the Dancing Bear Lodge & Restaurant is everything many visitors to the Smoky Mountains might wish for.
Only 5 minutes from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in Townsend, visitors can experience breathtaking views, hiking, biking and even an excursion to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg (if getting away from it all gets to you).
Visitors can have several accommodation options, including the lodge, a suite, a cottage or cabins; all located on premise.
