Lodging at the Inn and Hayloft

Country Manor Acres is located in the true heart of the Smoky Mountains in a little community called Townsend, TN. Townsend is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of Sevier County (Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg) and offers much more for those who crave less in their trip to the Smokies. The natural landscapes offer beauty that is unrivaled here in the mountains and Country Manor Acres provide several spots where you can take advantange of that beauty. The estate encompasses ponds, including a fishing pond, with a large weeping willow tree perfect for photo opportunities and outdoor wedding ceremonies, a natural rock garden with gorgeous and precise landscaping for small ceremonies and personal events, a level hilltop where you can bring a camera and fill your memory card with some of the best views you’ll find in East Tennessee or set up a large tent for a public gathering. There are even horses grazing in the fields over yonder! Country Manor Acres aims for the full Southern Tennessee experience and you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone else committing to that level of detail! There is also the Appalachian Party Barn – a full service reception hall, and the Hayloft Sky Cabin – a vacation cabin for up to 8 overnight guests, both made from renovated barns here in Townsend.

Outdoor Vintage Farm Weddings in the Foothills of the Smokies

Outdoor Vintage Farm Weddings in the Foothills of the Smokies

Country Manor Acres in Townsend, TN, a small, genuinely peaceful little stretch of landscape right at the gates of the Smoky Mountain National Park, provides two highly Southern and exquisite items for newlyweds wanting to celebrate their big day in a very unique way – the Applachian Party Barn for the reception afterwards, and the Hayloft Sky Cabin for a honeymoon night or a place where family can stay. The Appalachian Party Barn is not simply a novelty, it is a full-service event accommodation for weddings, family reunions, baby showers, barbecues or any other get-together you could think of. Double doors on both ends of the barn and stall doors on the sides of the barn keep the barn bright and 3 paddle fans circulate the air. The center open area is large enough to accommodate a full band and dance area, and buffet. Most guests actually sit inside the stalls for dining! It’s definitely a great way to make the reception memorable and interesting and there’s even ample parking space for 100 guests. The Hayloft Sky Cabin is also a re-structured barn for overnight guests – up to 8 can sleep comfortably in the cabin, but you may also want it for just the two of you! The cabin features two king beds, two queen beds, a single bed, a queen sleeper/sofa, double-size futon sleeper, two and a half bathrooms, pool table, musical organ, flat screen TV and some of the best views of the Smokies in Townsend you can find!
