Watching sun rising from snow-capped thunderhead mountain in the bear room, waking up smelling aroma of hot breakfast, hiking on nearby trails in the smoking mountains, soaking in hot whirlpool tub or steam shower, the two-night stay at Chilhowee Mountain Retreat was heavenly experience for us. Everything could not be better. It truly lives to what previous reviewers raved about:...

The owners, Jim and Mary are just great. We stayed in the Forest View room, very clean and secluded. We also got a private hot tub, which was just awesome in the night. There was WIFI reception in the room too. You won't get any cell reception up there though. We stayed there just one night and I wish I...
