Best kept secret

My husband and I stayed here for a short getaway. It was just what we needed to disconnect from everything and reconnect to each other. The space was fantastic and food was amazing.


Amazing getaway in our own backyard

5 on April 16, 2016

We are locals and are so thankful we have Butterfly Gap Retreat right in our backyard! This is an amazing place with fantastic owners who go the extra mile to make sure your stay is superb. Our last stay was at the end of March, before the leaves were on the trees. That gave us a chance to see some of the other cabins that we had not seen before. We stayed in unit 142, the Glass House, our second time there. This is exactly what it sounds like - a round house with floor to ceiling windows all the way around. Even without the leaves, it is so secluded, you have no concerns over privacy. It is a great place to kick back and just take in nature. We had a wild turkey walk right up to the bedroom windows. Everything was great about this stay. The only possible negative was that there was smoke in the area from a controlled burn in Cades Cove. I personally, love that smell, so it didn't bother me. As others have noted, the breakfasts are huge and decadent. Plan on a nap if you eat it all! We will definitely be back!


The Best!

Great getaway. Quiet, clean, cool cabins, delicious breakfasts, relaxing. It's the best. We have been for 5 years in a row. You won't regret it. Try the treehouse! Love all the decks!


Our Honeymoon was Perfect!

5 on April 05, 2016

My husband and I booked a few days at Butterfly Gap for our Honeymoon in August and it was exactly what you see in the pictures, only better! It is the perfect romantic getaway, secluded and serene. The breakfast is fabulous and it was all we could do to eat it all each morning! The owners are so helpful and extremely pleasant. The cabins and surrounding are literally like something out of a story book. We enjoyed the paddle boards on the lake and hiking the property, I would definitely recommend the lookout at sunset. We can't wait to go back for our anniversary!


Sleeping in the trees

5 on April 05, 2016

Today is our one year anniversary and I can't help but think back with nothing but smiles. We had our wedding onsite, and it was the most beautiful day and so much more than we could have imagined. We stayed the night in the Treehouse and were blown away! Such a wonderful room and the breakfast was delish! Have I mentioned how amazing the family is that runs this gorgeous property? Those ladies rock! Seriously, such a gem of a place to make memories! ¿¿¿¿¿¿


Butterfly Gap - Amazing!!

5 on April 04, 2016

Butterfly Gap is more than a Bed and Breakfast. It is a unique, secluded mountain retreat. While most Bed and Breakfast venues provide a single dwelling for their guests with multiple rooms, this property provides 7 individual houses...each with a different view, theme and distinctive personality. And each of the houses is set on 5 private acres giving you privacy while still providing accessibility. The breakfast is beyond what is served in most 5 star hotels. Every morning's offering is different and served directly to your doorstep at your designated time. But the most important offering at this retreat are the owners. Their graciousness and attention to detail is what sets Butterful Gap Retreat apart from any other bed and breakfast. While I would like to keep this little secret gem to myself, do yourself a favor and try a week or weekend at Butterfly Gap. Your first visit will not be your last!


Love Butterfly Gap

We have visited Butterfly Gap for the last 5 or 6 years. The cabins are charming, the breakfasts are delicious and it is so peaceful! The owners are delightful. We will return again next year.


Best place ever

5 on April 03, 2016

My husband and I were needing a short getaway for just the two of us. When I happened upon this while doing research, I knew it would be the perfect place....and it was. From the moment we arrived to the serene setting to the best breakfast brought to our door, we couldn't have been more pleased. They are so nice and accommodating to anything we needed. We can't wait to return.


Treehouse Getaway

5 on March 30, 2016

We stayed in the Treehouse at BGR, and it was amazing! Waking up in the woods is a treat and the breakfast was delicious! We had a wonderful and relaxing stay.


FANTASTIC RETREAT

5 on March 17, 2016

My wife and I try to escape to this wonderful place as often as possible. We have stayed in three of the cottages and have never been disappointed. We simply love this place and adore Laura and Becky. This place is truly a retreat and an escape from our "connected" society. If you need high speed internet and 4G phone service to stay connected, then this is not the place for you. If you want a place to escape with your significant other, I cannot think of a better place to do it.
