We had a weekend retreat for 28 people and the accommodation was perfect. There was ample space, an amazing view, and the cabin was intimate and homey. I just wish we had planned on staying longer! We will definitely go back.

My son, myself, and my friend stayed here for our summer vacation in a 2 bedroom cabin. It was great! The place is clean and has full kitchen. It is near the Cades Cove area and close to most of the local attractions yet far enough off of the beaten path to provide a quiet respite from the craziness of... More

We take our youth group here every fall and absolutely love the facilities, location, friendliness of Ruth, and the cleanliness of their cabins! This is a great getaway and safe location. The cleanliness can't be beat. We will continue to reserve and return every year.

We used a groupon for this cabin for a 3-night rental. The cabin was exactly as we expected. It was cozy and clean. The views from Blue Spruce were slightly obstructed, so we didn't have as much of a beautiful mountain scenery as we had expected, but we got plenty of that just down the road at the national park....

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. It is such a peaceful place to stay. Really off the beaten path, but an easy drive to anything you want to go do. After running around all day. It was so enjoyable to come back to somewhere nice and quiet. Our cabin had all the comforts of home plus a... More

We held a family reunion here 3 years ago and after checking many other locations, we are choosing to return here. We enjoy that we can all (Over 40 of us) can be together in one building and have a large kitchen and dining area to use as well as two big meeting rooms. The pool is great too. we... More

We stayed in Blue Spruce for three nights. This Retreat Center is about half way up a mountain and very quiet and peaceful. Our cabin was very nice...nothing really fancy...but, perfect for what we wanted. It was fairly close to town, but yet away from everything too. The caverns and a riding stable are just down the road from the... More

The retreat center can house large groups down to couples with their 3 lodges and 3 family cabins. The swimming pool and hot tubs are wonderful attractions too. The staff is most helpful and friendly. "Come... More

I went on a ladies' retreat here this past weekend. We stayed in the Bear Lodge Cabin, which is up near the very top of a mountain. The cabin was very comfortably furnished; kitchen was well-stocks with everything we needed except the food! Our group was 10 ladies. We had plenty of space to spare and could have easily had...

Thank you for your review of Bear Lodge. That is a big help to us. Yes, we are on the side of a mountain, and there are some who don't like that. That's the risk you take when you come to the Smoky's! Hope to see you again sometime. More

My wife and I stayed at the Blue Spruce cabin during our Christmas break vacation. It's a three bedroom cabin (bedroom with queen bed and whirlpool tub, full bathroom, and living area/kitchen). It's spacious for two people and was attractively decorated for Christmas. Kitchen was fully furnished and the gas log fire place was cozy even if it didn't produce... More
