Fantastic getaway. Loved it. Hospitality is unmatched. Nestled away yet close enough to go into town, if needed. Architecture is stunning. Can't wait to go back! Every cottage is different and so charming!

Retreat is a perfect word for this place. It's more than a B & B, more than renting a remote cabin in the mountains, more than staying in a luxurious inn. As others have noted, the breakfasts they serve are far better than you will find in a typical B & B. The individual cabins were specifically designed for the... More

I would highly suggest this retreat. My husband and I stayed here for a week for our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. The cabin was more beautiful than the pictures show (if that is even possible) and the shower...what I wouldn't give to have that shower... Anyway, we stayed in #332 which was very private. As other guests have... More

We stayed at Butterfly Gap Retreat while visiting my husband's boyhood home (Maryville, TN) and family. We stayed in Cottage #332- beautifully decorated, comfortable and private. Loved the 2-person shower and the floor to ceiling windows. So quiet and private. The breakfasts were awesome and Becky and her family are very warm and welcoming. Will definitely return!!

We have stayed in many hotels and B&B's but never have we fallen in love with a place like we did this one. Butterfly Gap is a jewel hidden in the mountains east of Maryville, TN. The 5 cottages are luxurious, unusually designed and very comfortable. The abundance of windows made it feel like we were all alone in the... More

The Butterfly Gap was beautiful. Close to everything from dining to Cades Coves - We just returned from a 4 night stay. The hosts are all wonderful - helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Breakfast - as others have stated is fantastic and bountiful - we had no need to worry about lunch as breakfast was plenty for both meals.... More

For anyone looking for peace and quiet, great service, excellent breakfast, and a unique stay, visit Butterfly Gap Retreat. A while back, Southern Living had an article featuring Butterfly Gap Retreat, and I clipped it out and placed it in my files. Knowing we were going to Nashville, Tennessee for a wedding, my husband and I booked a couple of... More

We stayed in home 142..Wow! It was like coming home! We brought our own food. We ate, we slept, we watched TV, we ate, we slept. It was a beautiful long weekend. The breakfasts were wonderful! I can't say enough about the great hospitality from Becky and Laura. This place is #1 on our list and will be a must-visit... More

This is a must stay retreat! Butterfly Gap offers 6 unique state of the art cottages. It's like a bed and breakfast, except its more private because you have your own cottage. Breakfast is delivered to your cottage. It is fabulous & ample (no lunch required)! You can truly rest and get away from the rat race. No one bugs... More
