We had our ceremony and reception at RT Lodge and we absolutely loved it! It is an absolutely gorgeous wedding venue. We had the entire lodge for the weekend. The staff were absolutely amazing. They did anything and everything for us to make our special day less stressful. It was honestly the most perfect day and a lot of that is attributed to the service provided by RT Lodge. We can honestly say it was the best day of our lives! The food was to die for!!!! All of our guest loved the wedding and continued to compliment how exquisite the venue and the food was. RT lodge most definitely went above and beyond for us and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

RT Lodge was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. My husband and I were able to relax knowing that everything was right on track for the Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding Day. They streamlined the planning process answering questions quickly, accommodating changes and special requests, and helping us wrangle all of the vendors. Our desire was to have a fun (stress free) wedding weekend with our friends and family, and the Lodge was the perfect choice. Since our wedding, we have received rave reviews from our guests. :
"Best wedding food I have ever had."
"Most fun and relaxed wedding we have ever been to."
"RT Lodge just knows how to do it right."
"Best Ribs I have ever had."
"The breakfast was amazing."
Everyone at RT Lodge was great to work with and extremely accommodating. Katie was awesome throughout the entire planning process and the weekend. Katie, Brooks, Chef Trevor and Katelyn were key to our wedding weekend success, and I am so thankful for them. I can't single out my favorite thing, but do yourself a favor and go have dinner at the lodge!

I can absolutely say that our wedding weekend would not have been the dream weekend we'd hoped it would be if we had chosen to have it ANYWHERE ELSE. We have an abundance of stunning venues near our home in Nashville but chose to host our friends and family 3 hours away in Maryville at RT Lodge because of the ease of having everyone in one place for the entire weekend. The welcome dinner was fabulous, breakfasts were tasty and our family-style dinner reception was delicious and exactly what we'd discussed with Chef Stockton. Katie was a dream to work with and every single staff member went above and beyond to make our weekend perfect. I'm an event planner and my expectations are high but they repeatedly exceeded my best case scenarios. We are so grateful to the RT Lodge family for executing the best weekend of our lives!

RT Lodge was the absolute perfect place to for my husband and I to get married and spend quality time with our loved ones without any stress! The Lodge, guest houses, and grounds are breathtaking and resort-like. The staff felt as if they were part of our family they were so accommodating and willing to help out in any way to ensure not only David and I had the perfect weekend, but that our friends and family enjoyed their visit as well! Katie and Katelyn were always one step ahead of us with everything throughout the weekend, and it was such a relief knowing everything was taken care of. Come hungry because the food is mouth watering and you will not leave a single crumb on your plate. Chef Trevor Stockton...thank you! We look forward to the pleasure of dining and staying the night at RT Lodge for future anniversaries and date nights (or really any excuse to go back)!

My husband and I wanted somewhere where we could bring our families together and get to know each other better. I am from England and my husband has a huge family from all over the U.S. so the guest list included lots of people who had never met until the wedding. It couldn't have been more magical. We had our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception at the lodge.
I'll start with the food. I have never had such amazing food at a wedding. Ever. Every person we spoke to said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Amazing food. Worth every penny!! We are foodies and we were so impressed. Next, the staff. ALL the staff were unbelievable. They went above and beyond to make us happy. I was unhappy with my flowers and they did everything they could to fix them, even though I used an outside vendor. They took care of everything! I really couldn't have asked for more from them. Alex, Jennifer, Katie, and Max were all wonderful to work with and made us feel special and at ease the whole weekend. The venue sells itself. It was absolutely stunning.
Overall, I had so many people tell me it was the best wedding they had ever been to - the venue & the food especially. We are SO GLAD we chose RT Lodge and can't thank everyone enough for the most perfect day!

There is absolutely no way I can say enough wonderful things about the RT Lodge in an online review. From the moment I set foot on the property, I knew that this was where I had to be married. The main lodge smells subtly of patchouli and cigars, and is the coziest place I've ever seen. Large armchairs and couches greet you with rows upon rows of books. After booking the Lodge, we began working with their coordinator, Alex, who is an absolute god-send. I'm not the world's most decisive person, but she took my ideas and ran with them for our cake, flowers, and seating ideas. We had a rental company come in and do some decorating, but the Lodge staff was more than happy to help them set up and make sure everything was as perfect as it could possibly be. They even went so far as to keep up with our special toasting glasses for the evening - every time I turned around, there was a staff member asking if I needed anything or just checking in to make sure everything was going ok. I felt like a queen for the day - if I mentioned needing or wanting something, I didn't have to even consider how to get it done on my own, it was done for my by the time I turned around. Alex and Katie were amazing at coordinating the details of our ceremony, they lined everyone up, made sure the DJ got the music going as it was supposed to - all I had to do was prepare myself for the big walk down the aisle! Katie even walked with us bringing us water or champagne (or whatever we needed/wanted) as our photographer was working with us after the ceremony. I had no worries whatsoever once I stepped across the threshold of that place. The food is a story all of it's own. My husband and I are HUGE foodies and were really looking forward to dinner from Chef Stockton. We knew it wouldn't disappoint, but we were absolutely amazed at the food he delivered. It is beyond words.
Basically, impeccable service all around - The RT Lodge surpassed all of our expectations in every way.

Had a wonderful wedding day at RT lodge. The entire staff bent over backwards to help make it exactly how I imagined. It was absolutely a beautiful experience from beginning to end, and if I could get married again tomorrow at the lodge I would do it all over again. The outside and the inside of this venue are breathtaking and the food is the best wedding food you will ever put in your mouth! What a lovely night! Would recommend this to any other Bride looking to have a magical wedding day at a venue that does so much to make it exactly what you pictured. RT staff helped with everything from menus, signs, putting on cake flowers, finding me a flower girl basket because we forgot ours, to helping me get my garter to stay on! Awesome staff! Awesome wedding experience!

My (now)husband and I wanted to create a full weekend experience for our guests. We had guests coming from numerous locations on the east coast (predominantly Connecticut, New York, and Florida) as well as California. We'd been to too many weddings where we'd flown out for the wedding, ran from one location to another, and never really had a chance to catch up with all of the family members and friends we wanted to see! RT Lodge provided a lovely, relaxing place for our families and friends to connect (and reconnect). As I walked across the lodge grounds on Friday night, I saw many of our guests enjoying the rocking chairs and tables around the main house, and there wasn't an empty seat by the fire pit. All of the guests that I spoke with about the accommodations were in awe of how much our weekend was a relaxing vacation and party and not *just* a wedding!

The RT Lodge team was phenomenal. We were planning our wedding from California and had to do much of our planning via email and through a proxy (my mother, who lived in the area). Even as those minor hiccups occurred (and they will always occur), Alex would reassure us with a simple, "Don't worry about it, it'll be fine." Beyond fine, it was really just perfect. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire weekend.

One small note, we had a lot of vegetarians at our reception. If you have guests with special dietary needs, be sure to give the RT Lodge team a list of names and the table numbers for those guests so that staff can easily identify those guests and get their meals to them. We were asked at the beginning of the reception for a list of vegetarians and vegans, and we struggled to remember everyone on the spot!

The amount we spent includes a the ceremony site rental, exclusive use of the lodge, 3 rooms in addition to the ones provided for the bride and groom, a sit down dinner under the tent with 2 entrees, a cocktail hour, and beer/wine.

The team at RT Lodge created a wedding weekend that was better than perfect. Several professional meeting/event planners were in attendance (including the bride), and we all heaped effusive praise on the venue, the surroundings, the food, the staff and the attention to detail. Alex, Jennifer, Ellis, Jenny, Max, Gary and the whole team put together a flawless weekend for our families. For the level of service we, and all our guests, enjoyed, RT Lodge is an incredible value. I wish I could find reasons to host all my events there.
