About Tuckaleechee Retreat Center and Cabins

Tuckaleechee Retreat Center is a Christian non-profit, which is home to the National Office for Children's Bible Ministries, Inc. We offer seven cabins/lodges of varying sizes, sleeping from 2-40 guests! The main lodge features a beautiful saltwater pool, which is available to all of our guests, open Memorial Day through Labor Day. All cabins have gas fireplaces (except Firefly Lodge - fireplace coming soon!), fully equipped kitchens, grills, and hot tubs. Bed and bath linens are also provided! Activities available to all of our guests include the pool, corn hole, and fire pit. This retreat center is perfect for family reunions, church retreats, and more! Both the meeting space and the dining room in Elk Lodge will seat approximately 60 people comfortably, and the meeting space in Bear Lodge will seat approximately 40 people comfortably. The dining room in Bear Lodge will seat approximately 30 people comfortably. Overnight accommodations are required to rent the meeting space (2-night minimum). Based on availability, cabins can be rented separately, or multiple cabins can be rented together to hold more people. Two of our seven cabins (Elk Lodge and Bear Lodge) are great for conferences, retreats, and reunions, as they offer meeting space! The town in which we are located, Townsend, is incredibly quiet, peaceful, and serene. It is an amazing family-friendly atmosphere. Townsend is great for hiking (Cades Cove is just down the road), biking, tubing, horseback riding and ziplining, fishing, bluegrass music, and arts/crafts. But only 30-45 minutes away are Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville, where every activity, show, and Dollywood are at your fingertips. Cherokee is about 1.5 hours away, and Knoxville is 1 hour. Chattanooga is about 2 hours. Most of our staff live on the property, so although our office hours are Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm, we are always just a phone call or text away! We love e-mail and social media, and we love to get to know all of our guests! We look forward to having you!
