My husband and I honestly drove away from our wedding saying how great everyone at RT Lodge was the entire weekend. Everyone on staff was amazing and provided such great service for us and for our guests most of whom stayed on the property. My Mom and I worked with Ellis throughout most of the planning and she was amazing particularly in helping us coordinate vendors from afar and accomidate little touches that we wanted (croquet on the lawn!). We held our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception at the Lodge and it was a wonderful experience for us and for our guests to be able to be together throughout the weekend. The food is incredible. Incredible. (It bears repeating). The rooms are great and there is a nice area specfically for the bridal party to get ready in as well. As for pictures, there is a plethora of areas on the grounds to choose from and the place is gorgeous year round.

Overall - service, food, planning, convenience, and location are all excellent. We could not be happier with our choice to have our wedding at RT Lodge.

I planned an outdoor wedding in Maryville, in May - the rainiest time of the year. My backup plan for rain was that it wasn't going to rain...clearly unrealistic. It poured! The staff at RT Lodge was unbelievably accommodating and made my wedding perfect. They did everything they could in order for us and our guests to be comfortable despite the weather. I worked mainly with Ellis as the wedding coordinator and she was incredibly friendly, helpful, and sweet. I was quite the picky bride and she answered all of my questions/requests VERY quickly and professionally. It didn't matter what the job title was at RT Lodge, EVERY single staff member was there to help however they could. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the staff is even better. HIGHLY recommended!

RT Lodge- we had my bridesmaid's luncheon, our rehearsal dinner, our reception, and all of our guests lodging at RT Lodge. They did a fantastic job hands down! The entire weekend flowed effortlessly. All of the guests were raving about the rooms, the service, the food, the environment, etc. RT Lodge had to coordinate over 20 vendors and they were amazing- I couldn't have asked for anything more!

Offering individual assistance and multiple consultations, the RT Lodge removed all the stress from wedding planning. My husband and I honestly did not have to worry about anything. Using the Lodge as a weekend retreat for our wedding, we really felt welcomed by the knowledgeable and accommodating staff. The fire pits and beautiful foliage set a rustic tone, while the spacious tent, gorgeous centerpieces (made at the Lodge), and delicious food created the classic atmosphere we desired. I highly recommend RT Lodge to any couples who are looking for an intimate, relaxed destination.

RT Lodge is the absolute best place I could have ever imagined getting married. The location is the perfect setting for an intimate and personal wedding. The on site lodging makes for a great way to spend time with your guests throughout the entire weekend. Out of town guests were able to see how beautiful East Tennessee is. Also, I can't begin to talk about how wonderful the food is. The food for both my bridesmaids' luncheon and reception were some of the best food I've ever eaten. No wedding food has ever compared to it. Alex, the event coordinator, made the entire wedding planning process so easy. She took all of my tastes and preferences into consideration and helped coordinate everything so I didn't even have to do much! Exactly what I was looking for! She made our wedding such a personal reflection of mine and my husband's personalities and styles. All of our friends have been raving about RT Lodge ever since our wedding, and we cannot wait for another wedding there so we can go back and relive our perfect wedding weekend. Thank you RT LODGE!!

My groom and I wanted to find a location where we could have guests stay and not have to be driving all over town for the festivities. This location was the absolutely perfect place for our vision. The lodge is quaint and relaxing. Lots of space for guests to lounge and socialize between the gathering rooms in the lodge, to the porches and the fire pit. Alex and Ellis were so helpful in the planning and quick in communicating. On the day of, they were amazing, making sure every detail was in place and that the day ran smoothly. The entire staff at the lodge was accommodating throughout our stay and extremely friendly. A lot of our guests were not from the area and they have all said how fabulous Southern Hospitality is...thanks to the lodge. Finally, we must not forget the food. It was so delicious and unique. The chef is extremely talented and created a memorable menu for us and our guests. This is not your run of the mill banquet type location. This venue is exceptional in all ways and we are now trying to figure out how to host another event there. Thank you RT Lodge for making our wedding day so amazing!

We used the RT Lodge as a gathering place for family and friends at our son's wedding. The rehearsal dinner was delicious. The setting was lovely with many places for guests of different ages to gather. The staff was wonderfully accommodating and any request was met with a smile and "we can do that."

As the mother of the groom, I cannot think of anything that could have made our weekend more special than staying at the RT Lodge. Our guests and the bridal party bemoaned the fact that they could not come back without another special event to celebrate.

We would happily do it again with RT Lodge's gracious help.

I used RT Lodge to host my daughter's wedding and reception on Sept.4, 2011 and just cannot say enough good things about them. The staff, especially their point person, Alex, is amazing, especially since this was their first "hindu, indian wedding. She did not bat an eye when we asked her to arrange for a horse for the groom to ride on, and two days later we had a horse. the wedding day which till two days ago was supposed to have isolated thunderstorms, the night before predicted steady rain and the day of the wedding and so they arranged a tent for 200 people the day of the wedding. The food is delicious, cooked by a an amazing chef. the guests had a ball, the setting is very beautiful with nature walks, fire pits and koi ponds, the hotel seems cut-off from the rest of the world. the cleaning staff picked up the bride's room and put everything away neatly. great shuttle pick up from the airport and back. I recommend this a wedding and lodging location without no reservations.
