We have a partnership with Sequoyah National Golf Club, which is just 15 minutes away from the Inn. Give us a call with your vacation plans and we will create a package to fit your needs.

Owned by the Eastern Band of the Cherokee, this Robert Trent Jones II design plays 6,600 yards from the back tees to a par 72 and features impeccable bent grass greens with bluegrass fairways and a large practice area with putting and chipping greens. Jaw dropping scenery from each tee box and green highlights the risk reward design of this unique mountain venue. Spectacular elevation changes through the peaks and valleys of the Smokies provide stunning drop shot par threes, several drivable par fours and a fantastic collection of go-for-broke par fives.

With the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad depot just a couple of minutes away, we're the perfect location for a scenic rail excursion. We have been booking train reservations for our guests for many years and are experts in knowing which seats will work best for you and your group. The Railroad also has many special excursions during the year such as the BBQ and Brew, Wine and Rail Pairing, The Great Pumpkin Patch Express and of course, the very popular Polar Express for the Christmas Holidays. It is never to early to book a special excursion package as they sell out quite quickly. If you book your train excursion through us, we will give you a $10.00 discount on your first room night.

You can review the excursion options at to familiarize your self with the different cars and classes available. Once you have decided which you would like, just give us a call and we will book your train excursion along with your inn stay.  Simple as that. BOOK WITH US
