Tucked away within lush woods on the peaceful side of East Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains, RT Lodge is a 58-room boutique inn with a locally-driven restaurant and scenic event space. Refined yet approachable, the Lodge offers an immersive, relaxing retreat in every corner of the property. The Main Lodge is the optimal indoor space for guest connection, boasting an elegant dining room and lounge, plus intimate communal spaces complete with fireplaces and soft leather club chairs. The gardens and grounds surrounding the property offer moments of tranquil restoration through time spent in handmade rocking chairs, by the koi pond, or on one of the secluded greenery-laden paths in the woods. Guests looking for a night away can experience a true retreat in the Walker and Wiley guest houses — named as an ode to the original resident of the Lodge. These accommodations feature custom-crafted furniture in classic lodge style and the country-house comfort of luxury linens and amenities. Helmed by acclaimed Chef Trevor Stockton, The Restaurant at RT Lodge serves intentional and technique-driven dishes hinged on the regional culinary traditions and local ingredients from area purveyors, including Chef Stockton’s own family’s hog farm in Gainesboro, TN. This mountain getaway is secluded and relaxing, creating the ideal destination for weddings, meetings, and special events, executed by the talented in-house events and culinary teams who bring clients’ visions to life. RT Lodge is just minutes away from Maryville College, regional airport McGhee Tyson, quickly accessible to Knoxville and outdoor adventures in the Great Smoky Mountains.
