The beautiful 2-story Elk Lodge offers ten bedrooms, each with two queen beds and private bath, some with desks; a large, fully equipped kitchen (commercial gas range and 2 convection ovens, two dishwashers, two refrigerators, pots/pans/utensils/silverware, and plenty of prep space), and large dining room with farmhouse-style tables, which seats 40-50 people and overlooks the pool. Adjacent to the dining room is a large family room with 15-person wrap-around sofa, dual-sided gas fireplace (available October through April), and flat screen, Roku Cable TV/DVD. Upstairs is the 1,500 square foot common room for meetings, chapels, or just hanging out. It offers a pool table, ping pong table, small seating area with flat screen smart TV/DVD on a rolling stand, chairs & tables for conference meetings/crafts, and laundry room with extra full bath. Free WIFI is provided throughout the lodge. Both top and bottom levels have decks that run the full length of the building, overlooking the mountains, complete with rocking chairs for enjoying the view. Elk Lodge is the perfect place for your family reunion, men's, women's or youth retreat, and so much more! Please note: 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 and locked, for your privacy. The guest rooms and guest common areas (kitchen, living room, dining room, and common room) are solely for your group to use during your 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 the your stay. We provide a key for every bedroom if you wish to keep your personal belongings locked in your room 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! ASK ABOUT OUR PASTORS' AND FULL-TIME CHRISTIAN WORKERS' SPECIALS FOR THIS CABIN!!!

Sales tax exempt organizations will only be charged the 5% LODGING tax, when proof of information is on file and organization's check or credit card is used for payment.

S. Lindsey -:- Dayton Ohio
We had our family reunion at the Elk lodge. It was an ideal setting. The kitchen was incredible. Lots of counter top space. Two refrigerators, two dishwashers, two sinks a large stove and oven. Lots of silverware and loads of dishes. The dining room had plenty of tables and chairs and a bar with a small refrigerator. At the other end of the room there was a large wood burning fireplace in a large room with a couch that wrapped around 3/4th of the room and a TV (which got very little use). Upstairs was a large room with a pingpong table and a pool table and a couch and a TV. The kids loved playing up there. The porch was lined with swings and rocking chairs over looking the pool. The pool is large and only 3 1/2 feet deep. This was ideal as we had young children in our group. And the swimmers were still able to swim laps. Since we rented the entire lodge, the families with young children could put the kids in bed and then come join the adults. If the kids woke up, they could follow the laughter to fine their parents.

Thank you S. Lindsey. We appreciate you choosing Elk Lodge, and thanks for the wonderful compliments. One comment: all our fireplaces are gas logs on timers. We do not have wood burning fireplaces.

This was a perfect location for our family gathering. A gorgeous setting with comfortable, private bedroom/bathrooms for each family, roomy dining and gathering areas, lots of space to romp for the little ones, and a terrific kitchen that made feeding all of us reasonably priced and easily accomplished. All very accessible to offsite activities... although we were all content to stay onsite some days and enjoy our time together there.

Ruth White was an excellent hostess, The resort was clean and spacious. We had a spirit filled meeting and we all grew closer to the Lord. Our wives used the well stocked kitchen for meals. I hope we will be able to work out a return next year. Having private bed rooms and bath rooms was a real plus. The weather was beautiful and the view from the porch was breath taking.

Friendly reception. I went with a group of about 20 ladies for a retreat. The place has a quaint lobby that makes me feel at home. Great stone fireplace in the lobby as well as an antique piano that was like nothing I've ever seen. The ceilings had large beams and the rooms were decorated in keeping with the area mountain culture. They had a stack of family games that we used some evenings. They had a TV and we used it once to watch a DVD that someone brought. Modern pool and hot tub available, but it was too cool to us the pool. Our retreat group loved the spacious kitchen since we chose to use it for many of our meals. There was plenty of room in the two refrigerators, stoves, and counter space. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Great pillows. (I'm a fan of good pillows) The location is near to Gatlingburg and Pigeon Forge (Dollywood) which gives you many options for activities! Cades Cove was a beautiful place to see deer and wildlife.

About the neighbourhood
This cabin is in Townsend, TN, a peaceful town beside the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, one of the few free national parks in the U.S.!! We are nestled on the side of the mountain, overlooking the beautiful Dry Valley and Rich Mountain, where serenity abounds! Townsend provides delicious restaurants, several options for river tubing, souvenir shopping, museums, horseback riding, and more! The National Park has endless opportunities for hiking, biking, fishing, picnics, and viewing wildlife. A favorite is the Cades Cove Loop Rd which is 11 miles of scenery and wildlife in its natural habitat. Just a short 30 minutes away, is Pigeon Forge, home of Dollywood and many fun tourist attractions and shopping options.
Getting around
You can walk or ride a bike, but we are located approximately 3 miles from 'town,' and the roads are steep and winding! We would recommend a car. However, biking is VERY popular in this area, so bring your bike if you like to ride!
