Cabin Holiday Rental
Elk Lodge is a large, comfortable log cabin that is great for connecting with your friends and family. Spacious common areas such as large dining room, living room, kitchen and conference room create an atmosphere great for building relationships and growing your family or church. The large porch with numerous rockers and a swing, plus the upper level deck, provide a great place to view God's handiwork of the spectacular mountain views. To check availability, search for Tuckaleechee Retreat Center. Owned by a Christian ministry with a staff that strives to be good stewards of the property and keeps the cabin in great shape. The 10 bedrooms each have a private shower bath and 2 queen beds. Elk Lodge is located in the Dry Valley area of Townsend, TN with a spectacular mountain view. ...Elk Lodge is a large, comfortable log cabin that is great for connecting with your friends and family.

The 10 bedrooms each have a private shower bath and 2 queen beds. Elk Lodge is located in the Dry Valley area of Townsend, TN with a spectacular mountain view. A large pool is available on the property in the summer, but located in the Townsend area is a cavern, horseback riding, hiking, golf, bike or walking path, shopping and tubing down the river. It is approximately a 30 minute drive to Pigeon Forge, TN and a little farther to Gatlinburg, TN. There is plenty of parking at Elk Lodge for cars, vans and small buses. Coach bus transportation is allowed as well, but the driver needs to be experienced in mountain driving. 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, supply closets, 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 (one of the apartments has an exterior entrance/exit and we are in the process of building an exterior entrance for the other one). Our staff members who live in these two apartments enter and exit the building discreetly and quietly. Finally, our main linen closet is located inside of Elk Lodge, on the first floor, at the end of the hallway by the kitchen. If our housekeepers or Interns have any other cabins to clean during your stay, or if our laundry service needs to drop off/pick up linens, they will be accessing this closet, but will always be respectful of your space and belongings. 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! More

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....More

About the neighbourhood
Dry Valley in Townsend is a quiet valley surrounded by mountains. It is 3 miles from the main road in Townsend, Hwy. 321. Townsend is a small town with one stoplight, several wonderful restaurants, a Christian-owned coffee shop, outdoor and boutique shops, an art gallery, easy access to hiking, waterfalls, picnic areas, ziplining, bluegrass music, fishing, horseback riding, biking, and river tubing (in summer), only a 20 mile drive to Pigeon Forge, TN and 26 miles to Gatlinburg, both east of Townsend. Maryville to the west is an 18 mile drive. The beautiful Foothills Parkway, Cherohala Skyway (popular with cyclists), and Tail of the Dragon are within close driving distance, as is Cherokee, NC. Come see us and you won't want to leave!
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!
