Exceptional

Just what we needed for a weekend getaway. These guys do it right!! Have been to several retreat spots across the country and this place is leaps and bounds better than places twice the cost. If you are looking for a private and relaxing weekend then this is your place. Pre order extra ice cream...... trust me.......


Perfect!

Doing it right

The staff at Butterfly Gap have excelled in all aspects. The design/style of each cottage; the layout of the premises; the breakfast (wow!); the friendliness; the seclusion; the amenities.... I have no suggestions for improvement! Perfect relaxing getaway weekend.


Fabulous getaway

We booked Butterfly Gap as a last-minute winter getaway, based on a Southerb Living online review and pictures on the website. It far exceeded our expectations and we have already booked another trip for our anniversary in March. The cabin was perfect, the owners were friendly and helpful, the breakfasts were delicious and hearty. One morning included cinnamon rolls just like my Grandma used to make and though I've been sugar-free for months I ate mine and my husband's! Cannot wait to go back to BGR and will return often. Perfect Getaway locale!


Treehouse 134 Will Probably Always Be Our Favorite!!

5 on December 26, 2015

This was our second stay at BGR, first time stayed in guesthouse 320 (also awesome), this time stayed in the treehouse 134. The treehouse will probably always be our favorite, but we plan to try some other guesthouses! We were there in the fall, so the leaves were on the trees for more privacy and they were beautiful in color. The treehouse is so modern (like the others) and unique with it's different levels and multiple outdoor spaces. It was so awesome to wake up feeling like we were in the trees! The breakfasts were again so amazing, for us there was enough left over for lunch. Suggest bringing paper plates and a couple over-the-door hooks. This guesthouse doesn't have a dishwasher or a guest closet for clothes, but these were only minor inconveniences. The kitchen and living room areas are on the first level, then you go up 6 steps to the bathroom area, then up 11 more steps to the bedroom. Small lighting illuminates these steps at night. There are additional exterior steps from this point going up to the screened-in covered deck that includes a hammock! We also enjoyed hiking the trails and driving up to the overlook. This will probably always be our favorite bed and breakfast!


Never felt so relaxed!

We were extremely pleased with our stay. The breakfast was great and the ice cream was fantastic! I can't remember ever staying in an area so quiet and peaceful. I highly recommend it!


Thanksgiving Weekend

The cottage was lovely and the breakfast were excellent. Coffee was an issue since the 4 cup maker produced terrible coffee. I hoped for some fresh brewed with breakfast, and it was too far to run into town. The distance from town for an evening meal combined with a bottle of wine was a problem.


Just what we needed¿¿

Our stay at Butterfly Gap was truly a "retreat". We will definitely be back.


29th Anniversary get-a-way Nov 2015

While these are probably the farthest from "cabins" they are WONDERFUL in you are looking to get away, unplug and reengage with your significant other! We stayed in house 142, it is the most secluded of all of the 7 houses. You are on top of a mountain! (we're from Indiana, it was up there!) The house is surrounded by almost 360 degrees of glass! But don't worry, the curtains cover all of the glass. The house is furnished very nicely and cozy! From the gas fireplace to the spa tub to the walk in 3 head shower to the king bed, its EVERYTHING you need! The kitchen is wonderfully appointed with everything one needs. Coffee maker too! There was even a pint of ice cream in the freezer for their guests. The bath had all of the supplies needed too, hair dryer included. The 1st morning, breakfast arrived on time and WOW, the breakfasts at BG are wonderful! Plan on not eating lunch until afternoon after eating one of these! They bring OJ and milk too! We had a visitor the first morning...a small black bear wondered up to our house. You are in the hills/Mtn's of Tennessee after all! We saw many deer too! We had a little mechanical issue with the AC in the house one day, yes we had such GREAT weather, we ran the air in late November! Ryan came up right away to make sure we were comfortable and by the next morning, Laura and Ryan (daughter and son-in-law of the owners) had it fixed! We went shopping in Pigeon Forge one day, went to the Smoky Mtn's one day and hiked, They are both about 45 min away. BG is about 9 miles from Maryville and this will take you about 15 min to drive if you need something. The house had a TV and DVD in both the living and bed room. The BG office has DVD's to borrow. The house has stereo throughout the house. If you come during the winter, the floors also have radiant heating! We cant say enough about the wonderful time we had at Butterfly Gap Retreat!


Awesome

This is our 5th time to stay at Butterfly Gap over the last several years. We absolutely love it. The accommodations are warm, clean and inviting. The breakfast is amazing as well. It's been an amazing get away for us in the season of life with young kids. .
