Rent an entire house and make it your home away from home. Each of our homes was originally built for separate families and so each is unique. They have been used 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 for non-overnight guests please contact the Lodging office.  You may make your Lodging reservation through Home Away, TripAdvisor, or AirBNB or call 615-599-7141

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), childrens rooms with shared full bathrooms, dens with multiple beds and no bathrooms, and half bathrooms off common areas. To determine the best option for your needs we need to know how much space and privacy you require, so please 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 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 are willing to let other persons through their bedroom to access a full bathroom ?

7) 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.
