Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so very glad to see the new completely paved road to both the Tanasi Lodge and Dreamcatcher Cabin. Getting to the Lodge and Dreamcatcher was SO easy now that the roads are completely paved. We do plan to come again soon.

Tanasi Lodge

  • 5 of 5

My family had their visit to Tanasi Lodge in July. We had a family reunion of 25. Our ages ranged from 3 to 82 and we celebrated 9 birthdays. The lodge is beautiful and well--maintained by Cindy and her husband. The panoramic views of the mountains and valley are amazing. I don't think we could have found a better place to stay for the week. The Lodge was large enough for everyone to have their own space. At night, we all gathered around the kitchen and dining table to talk about adventures during the day and to enjoy the evening sunsets. Instead of leaving to go into Pigeon Forge, the cousins sat around the fire pit at night to enjoy the s'mores and the great weather. The week went by too quickly and we are still posting our Smokey Mountain adventure on Facebook. Thank you Cindy for an amazing week and we hope to come back in the near future.

Owner's Response: Thanks so very much for coming to Tanasi Lodge. I love for families to meet at the Lodge and be able to share and make new memories. The Lodge has been filled over the years with so many families that have made memories to last a life time. I am very grateful to have been able to develop a business that makes so many people happy. I am going to set up a Facebook page for Tanasi Lodge so look for it soon and post your pictures. I would love to have them. Thanks again for coming to Tanasi Lodge. Please consider returning in the future. CIndy Britt

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our church group has rented both Tanasi and Dreamcatcher Lodge for the past three years. We have been perfectly satisfied. Diverse in age as our party is, the lodges are accommodating to the upmost. Ample room and amenities are wonderful. The well kept and clean facilities just can't be any better. The bedrooms are very comfortable as well as the common areas. The kitchen facilities are great from appliances to the dish and cookware. The owners are appreciative and always helpful to answer questions. I personally have rented other cabins in the area and can honestly confirm these exceed others. We have reserved already for next year and are looking forward to the stay.

Cozy cabin, beautiful view, accommodating owner!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had our early Christmas here with all of my Dad's family. We were 27 people. We had a great time! The view from the cabin is amazing! It's literally on top of the mountain & you can look down into the valley on both sides! Very cozy living room with a real wood fireplace, super comfy beds, big hot tub... Cindy (the owner) was extremely accommodating! She texted me 3 times while we were there to see if there was anything we needed! Definitely recommend this cabin and hope to go back sometime!

Amazed

  • 5 of 5

Our company hosted a retreat for 10 employees plus spouses. This house was an absolute dream location. Everyone was amazed at the views and the home. There was plenty of room to spread out, but the living areas were also large enough for us to be together. We enjoyed the grills and the smoker to prepare meals. The hot tub and pool table were perfect for fun. The owner was extremely accommodating and attentive to us. She was a pleasure to work with and the care showed through in her beautiful home. We can't wait to go back, and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

Owner's Response: Thanks so very much for coming "to the mountain top!" I am so very glad you enjoyed it. I especially want to thank you all for leaving the Lodge in such immaculate condition. I think you all win the award for leaving the lodge almost spotless even with 20 adults who enjoyed the lodge and the grounds. I do hope to see you all again in the near future. It make me as an owner so very happy that Tanasi Lodge surpassed your expectations. Best of luck with your company the rest of the year and I hope to see you in 2017!! My very best regards, Cindy Britt Owner

A must for family reunions!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion the week of June 18th at the Tanasi Lodge. If you think the online video is captivating, just wait until you are actually there! The views are absolutely spectacular, the sunrises and sunsets are something you will not want to miss by sleeping late or going to bed early! The owner, Cindy, has an eye for every little detail and makes sure even before you arrive that all of your needs and questions are being met. The lodge itself was spotless and stocked beyond what we expected. The beds are so comfortable, its like sleeping in your own bed. If you have toddlers, no need to worry about the stairs because there are baby gates and there is a local place to rent cribs and high chairs from (they do delivery to the lodge) I would not change one thing about this place, it is perfect!

A great destination for a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

Not the typical vacation rental. It was like staying with a friend in their beautiful home in the mountains. We had 30 people including families, single adults and children and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep with plenty of privacy. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. Cindy, the owner, was very much involved in making sure we had a memorable experience. The first drive to the top of the mountain was a little unnerving (paved all the way) but after a couple of trips you felt like a native. The views were worth it. We were able to park 11 big cars but it required a little planning and cooperation. With the landscaping it felt very secluded, private and quiet. The cost was less than $100 per night per bedroom. Probably the best bargain for a Smokey Mountain vacation going. Mike S. Clemson SC
