Rent an entire house and make it your home away from home. Each of our homes was originally built as a family home and so each is unique. Our guests have used them for family gatherings, weddings, corporate meetings, conferences, workshops, and church retreats. Only registered overnight guests may use the house. If you would like to hold an Event and invite day guests non-overnight guests) you must contact the Lodging office. Extra fees apply to day guests. To make your Lodging reservation fill out form below or call 615-266-3414
Need assistance deciding how many houses you need to accommodate your group? We would be happy to assist! All of our houses were built for families (and not as hotels or dormitories), so typically have a master suite (with its own full bath), children's rooms with shared full bathrooms, dens with multiple beds and no bathrooms, and bathrooms accessible from common areas. To determine the best accommodations for you, please let us know how much personal privacy members of your party prefer. The more beds, rooms, and bathrooms that a large group is willing to share with each other, the fewer houses will be needed. See floor plans here. Answer the below questions so we can best meet your expectations (If you do not care to answer the questions, then use the form below to let us know how many couples and how many singles are in your group):
1) What is the total number of your group?
2) How many couples (or pairs of singles)are willing to share the same large king or queen bed?
3) How many couples are willing to share the same sleeping room with others?
4) How many singles (in their own beds) are willing to share the same sleeping room with others?
4) How many couples are willing to share the same full bathroom with others?
5) How many persons or couples require a private bedroom?
6) How many persons/ couples require a private bedroom AND bathroom (i.e., they do not wish to share their bathroom with folks sleeping in other rooms without bathrooms).
There is an EVENT FEE of $10/person/day if non-lodging guests will be invited to your house(s). This fee may be adjusted depending upon the nature of the event. Additional seats/ tables may be set by our staff if needed for your day guests. You must contact us if non-lodging guests will be joining you. Avoid the EVENT FEE by having your meetings with day guests at nearby Big East Fork Retreat where several conference rooms are available.
