My fiancee comes from this part of the world, so it was important for her to "return to the family source" as it were. One of the interesting points for me was that this is the general area, if a bit east, of the classic "Sackett" family of Louis L'amour fame. I grew reading those, as my grandfather had pretty...

We have stayed at countless luxury resorts and B&B's and this was neither. We reviewed the website and we were very excited about going up for our anniversary. We booked a special January rate. I told the person that I booked with that it was our anniversary. The day we were scheduled to go up we received a call that... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us and we're glad you enjoyed our view and location. Your reservations were during a huge snow storm for the area. Since we are on the top of a mountain in a secluded area we encouraged you to reschedule when there wasn't a snow storm. But when you insisted... More

Christopher Place is a spectacularly located B&B on mountaintop near town of Newport, TN which we found while searching the web for hotels in the Gatlinburg area.Although we visited early January, the totally renovated facility offers full resort outdoor amenities in addition to stunning mountain views. We were the only guests on a mid-week night and received a gracious upgrade... More

Visiting the Christopher Place is like stepping into pure luxury. My husband and I have traveled the world and have very high expectations when it comes to our accommodations. I must say the Christopher Place did not disappoint. We were both elated not only at the majestic views and enchanting beauty of the resort, reminiscent of Monticello, but the overall... More

My husband and I took a leap of faith and booked a December wedding at Christopher Place. I use the expression "leap of faith" because although we had enjoyed a brief one-night stay at the Inn, we didn't know a lot about CP before we booked the entire Inn for a weekend wedding. I'm so glad we did it, because... More

This weekend was a surprise getaway gift from my husband. I didn't even realize how badly I needed it until I was soaking in my second bath of the stay! The cedar plank salmon was to die for, as was the yummy pot de crème. Afterwards, we retreated to the delightful library pub for nightcaps served by the equally delightful... More

We have enjoyed this resort many times, usually as a break from our daily grind. We find the various rooms very enticing and romantic. The inn itself has marvelous panoramic views of the Smokies. Plenty of wooded area for hikers and nature lovers. The meals are excellent, with caring presentation. The owner goes out of his way to ensure our... More

This is one of the nicest B&Bs in the country that you may want to avoid because it’s owner-operated. For starters, don’t call it a B&B. Even though the property’s own literature refers to the place as a B&B, owner Carsten Price Jr. will be fast to correct you should you err and refer to his “inn” as a B&B.... More

This B and B is in a beautiful location on top of a mountain with incredible views. The property is very clean but could use a few improvements. I was surprised that for over $300 per night, our shower was plastic with no tile. Dinner was about $125 for the two of us and I would grade C. Breakfast was... More

Most guests sing the praises of our dining and the cost comes from the unique menus our Chef prepares each night. We noticed you didn't share anything specific about your dislike of the dining.
