Natural beauty of luxury rustic retreats

Surround yourself in natural beauty in luxurious rustic lodges.

Cozy in the scenic Smoky Mountains outside of Knoxville, the community is home to luxuriously appointed rustic cottages and homes. Each cabin is unique with its unique custom barn doors recreated from ancient Haveli doors decorated with high-end country comforts. An elaborately carved swing sofa bed invites guests to relax and snuggle with a glass of full-bodied, dry red wine. Relax in the cabana with a fire burning in the old stone fireplace accented with rustic arches and enjoy a dip in the year-round heated saltwater pool.

An impressive medieval-style Mediterranean castle door leads to a massive 10,000-square-foot Pennsylvania barn that is both quaint and practical. The addition of the rooms to the rural landscape reminds us that the complex is truly a working farm. Freshly grown organic vegetables and fruits are the highlight of the farm, as well as the vineyard that covers many acres. Award-winning chefs turn the farm’s natural harvests into delicious dishes. The kitchen is lined with reclaimed wood, old earthy rustic cabinets that store spices and oils from around the world. The Barn entertains guests and is the venue for special events with celebrity chefs, culinary cuisine, and wine tasting classes. Dining tables made with reclaimed doors add a rustic and earthy feel along with several wooden pots and planters filled with herbs and flower arrangements.

This luxury boutique resort opened in late 2008 in a Rocky Mountain style of urban lodging. The lobby conversation piece of art is a massive 10-foot-tall ancient sculpture of the Indian goddess of Lakshmi, completely hand-carved from a single piece of wood. Stone columns line the hallway creating a backdrop reminiscent of Roman and Greek architecture. Woven silks and tufted tufted high-back sofas add an imperial touch.

With 108 singularly unique concept rooms, repeat guests should never stay in the same space again. Each room features a unique energy flow and an eclectic mix of antique furniture, rustic old world architecture, ornate carved chairs, and modernist bedding. Richly textured walls accented by antique arches and antique doors warm the bedroom and living room, where paisley and floral blankets add a touch of old English country charm. Country convenience meets high-tech, the lobby features a hand-carved tree of life door that elegantly hides a flat-screen recessed TV. With a touch of global flair, cultures from around the world combine to create an aura of wanderlust.
