We had 2 nights in the Forest View room as part of a 3 week road trip. The room itself was magnificent (yes, great bed); lots of space; right by the woods as the name implies. Wood everywhere. Good views towards the mountains. Maybe the best aspect was lying in the hot tub after dark, watching the fireflies dancing against... More

We are pleased that you enjoyed your hot-tub experience under the stars. It is also good to hear that our dinner was satisfying and that you liked the breakfasts. Being a B&B two things are important to us, guests having a good nights sleep and a hearty breakfast. Thanks for visiting and thank you for your kind review. More

Our stay was amazing! The Retreat home was beautiful and absolutely gorgeous! Jim and Mary the hosts, were so friendly and kind. Their hospitality made you feel right at home. We were in the Fest view room and it was very spacious and I loved the privacy of it. Breakfast was amazing! Each dish looked like it came right from... More

To say it is immaculate, looks brand new, supremely comfortable, personally and tastefully decorated, equipped with state of the art bathing and steam shower equipment, and very well hosted with warmth isn't saying enough about Jim and Mary's home and B&B. Stayed for three nights at New Years weekend. Waffles one day with more toppings than you could apply, and... More

Thank you for your glowing review. We have tried to be, as you say, "immaculate, looking brand new, being supremely comfortable, with personal and tasteful decorations." We certainly appreciate it when guests take note of how hard we try to make them comfortable. You are right, we are challenged by the mountain road in winter, we have only cancelled guests... More

Our stay here was amazing in every way! It was our 1year anniversary and we stayed four nights in the Bear Room. Everything from the shower, to the hot tub, big screen tv, to breakfast etc. was first class and I can't forget the GLORIOUS VIEW of the smoky mountains right outside the window! Jim and Mary were excellent host... More

We had a great stay at the Retreat and it is a real treat for sure. The rooms are true luxury, best nights sleep of our touring holiday. It's been said before but breakfast by Jim, is a joy especially the caramalised onion Quiche. Mary is also a mine of information on what to do and see in this location.... More

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

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.
