My outdoor wedding was held just down the road, where I grew up. I had no idea such a beautiful retreat and couple existed in my backyard. I was searching for Bed and Breakfasts to host myself and my husband, as well as his family who were travelling from Japan. We couldn't have found a better place to stay. Jim... More

Chilhowee Mountain Retreat is a beautiful place to get away to and relax. Jim and Mary are an excellent host and we really enjoyed the hospitality. Thank you Jim for the great conversation and excellent breakfast.

My husband and I spent a weekend at the retreat and had a great time. The innkeepers were a delight and made our stay most enjoyable. Quiche is among my favorite dishes and the one that was served for breakfast on Saturday morning would have made the French green with envy. The snack bar was amply stocked and there were... More

The Chilhowee Mountain Retreat is the best B&B ever! The view from the bear room was so beautiful, we will never forget that. Jim and Mary were very kind and even tried to adjust breakfast for our girls. We will be sure to come back soon.

After coming up the mountain into the beautiful drive that is surrounded by wildflowers, I was greeted warmly and felt welcomed. Breakfast each morning was suburb in presentation and taste and will fill you up until dinner!

Thanks for your review. It is always nice to know that folks find our place so relaxing they just don't want to leave. We don't want to see any of our guests go hungry -- when you want to stay and relax we offer bag lunches and a dinner, but these items need to be ordered at least two days... More

My husband and I stay for two nights in June. Jim and Mary have a beautiful home and they are wonderful hosts! We have stayed in many B&B's and the Chilhowee Mountain Retreat met our expectations!

First we want to thank you for your review. Yes, the road up to the retreat is climbing up a mountain. The road is steep in places and narrows to 16 feet in some areas. There are places to park trailers at the foot of the mountain, or you can just bring it on up since we have trailer parking... More

We are so pleased that you found us for your romantic getaway. We're glad you felt like family and enjoyed the breakfasts--after all, you go to a bed and breakfast to have a special breakfast, not something you do on a daily basis.

My husband & I stayed in early May for the weekend. I really can't say anything different than everyone else. Jim & Mary were extraordinary hosts. The B&B was gorgeous, the rooms cozy, the breakfast delicious, the views...amazing. Which brings me to my one (mini-not really) complaint. We were so comfy & relaxed at the retreat that if we had...
