This has been the best Bed and Breakfast experience that we have had. Your home is beautiful! You and Marilyn have been wonderful hostesses. We plan on returning and bringing friends with us. We haven’t relaxed this much in a long time.

Lisa and Scot, Knoxville, TN
Thank you for such a wonderful time! Even compared to the beauty of the mountains and your talent in building design and décor, you are still Gracehill’s greatest treasure…. How quickly you went from innkeeper to friend…

We left Nebraska to have a relaxing visit to the Smoky Mountains and enjoy Gracehill. Wow! Did we ever relax. What an amazing experience our Aflac Nebraska Team Members have had. Memories that we will each cherish forever and forward looking to our next visit to Gracehill...

Frank and Sandi, Orlando, FL
Thanks for a captivating and wonderful experience. Our friends and we loved the views, the breakfast, the hot tub, and the rooms. The clouds covering the lower parts of the valley while the mountains were exposed in morning sun were just like the brochure pictures. We couldn’t have asked for a more memorable time in the Smoky Mountains unless there had been one more night’s stay. With fond memories...

Thanks for a glorious 3-night stay. I used up my camera battery AND memory on the sunset, and we so enjoyed the entire visit, the food, the hiking advice, the stories, and the attention to detail in everything...

What were we thinking to only book 2 nights here? The transition back to Hatfield, PA will not be easy! The beauty of the Smokies and Gracehill will be with us for a long time to come!

Jane and Ron, Franklin, TN
We have thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days at Gracehill. Even though we live a short 3 hours away and visit the area often, you directed us to some of the most beautiful areas for scenery we have found. Food was excellent and the views from Gracehill astounding. But the best was the hospitality.

A note to tell you that your Mom was awesome! Loved her stories about Africa and your motorhome trip... Aside from that, your place is lovely, we had a terrific time, it was so beautiful and peaceful here and the food was fantastic. James did not use his cell phone once!

It’s always a very special treat to spend time with you and your Mom in your beautiful surroundings. ... the food is scrumptious too. Thanks for everything.

Jack and Georgia, Mount Vernon, VA
We just had a wonderful two-night stay at Gracehill B and B in Townsend, Tennessee. The informative website, while great and enticing, does not come close to capturing the essence, comfort, amenities and the innkeeper, Kathy Janke. We travel a lot and high on our list for accommodations is comfort and cleanliness. Gracehill surpasses anything we have ever experienced. We decided to spend our second day just enjoying--the hot tub, fitness center, scenery, etc., after our gourmet breakfast served on beautiful china with fresh flowers on the table and the beautiful mountains in front of us. This is a 5-Star plus B&B.

We could not have found a more perfect place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We would rank Gracehill and scrumptious breakfasts at the top of the list of the 40 B&B's we've enjoyed. And on top of all that, you were a fountain of excellent information about local restaurants, etc. Our entire experience with you was delightful.

Lynn and Joe, Chattanooga, TN
.... You have gone straight to the top in B&B rankings. We have stayed in many. You are the best. What a super weekend. Your attention to detail makes this heaven on earth. We'll be back.

... You were attentive and helpful when we needed it, but did not hover when we wanted privacy or solitude. Just the right balance.

Grace, St. Augustine, FL
We have stayed at many B&Bs in America and internationally and Gracehill has no comparison.
The spacious rooms individually appointed with original artwork and fine antiques as well as modern amenities like whirlpool tub, luxurious bedding and gas fireplaces add to the private relaxing setting. The attention to detail and personal attention are unsurpassed.
The 360-degree views are breathtaking and leave you wanting to plan your next visit before you depart. Kathy Janke deserves a Five star + rating in all areas including the breakfast that is to die for!!! Again, thank you for such a special get-away.

You and this wonderful place made our honeymoon unforgettable. Every breakfast surpassed our expectations. We called our families every morning to brag about it! Thanks for the tip about the Middle Prong trail. The waterfalls are truly breathtaking. You seem to really enjoy this place and your enthusiasm is contagious. Thanks, we’ll remember this always.
