Make wonderful memories when you stay in this beautiful mountainside lodge! Bring a group, your family reunion, or host a church retreat to “the peaceful side of the Smokies”. This lodge has all the amenities you need, plus a fireplace in the gathering room and of course, there’s a shared seasonal saltwater pool located right beside the lodge. Whether it’s rocking in the rockers on the porch, roasting hot dogs over the fire pit, or just hanging out, this lodge has everything you need to make your retreat or reunion special.
Elk Lodge is the main building at our retreat center and it is similar to a hotel-style building in that there are offices, guest rooms, and guest areas to hang-out. The offices are separated from the guest space by a sliding barn door. When guests are staying in the Lodge, our office staff enter through the Staff-Only entrance and the sliding barn door is kept closed, so that you have privacy during your stay. The guest rooms and guest common areas (kitchen, living room, dining room, and common room) are solely for the guests to use during their stay.
There are 2 detached staff apartments upstairs. Both apartments have exterior exits so our staff members who live in those apartments will not enter the guest areas during your stay. We have many returning family reunions and groups, representing thousands of guests that stay in Elk Lodge every year, and we have never had any issues. Please reach out to us with any questions regarding this. Thank you!
