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!

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.

When you go to RT Lodge you feel like you are so far away from it all, yet it is very close to all that Maryville has to offer. The grounds are so relaxing, the wooded ceremony site is perfection and the permanent tent looks like it is out of a storybook. I would highly recommend RT Lodge for your wedding!

I wish I could get married at RT Lodge all over again just because it was absolutely the best weekend of my life! Not only was it incredible having all our friends and family staying in one location, but having exclusive use of the lodge made it feel like our own private retreat. The staff is two steps ahead of you in making sure you are happy, comfortable, and well-fed. :) All of our out-of-town guests have continuously asked how they could come back and stay there, and friends of ours from all over have said they wish they could have a destination wedding at the lodge after staying there and attending our wedding. And the food all weekend is still being talked about!! I can't imagine having our wedding in any other location, and after years in the wedding industry I feel we can definitely say this is one of the most professional, relaxing, and cozy places we have ever stayed!

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!!
