About Us

Christopher Place Resort is the Smoky Mountain getaway that you’ve been looking for. Our bed and breakfast resort offers relaxation, activities, and amenities – the perfect recipe for a romantic getaway.

Colonial Style Mansion with a Luxurious Atmosphere

Christopher Place is a colonial-style mansion, newly constructed on 200 wooded acres at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. It is the only luxury Smoky Mountain bed and breakfast resort created exclusively for romantic retreats.

Reflections of crystal chandeliers in the marbled floors welcome you. Massive fireplaces, hand-carved furniture, and resort amenities invite you to settle in.

The tranquility of the Smoky Mountains surrounds you at Christopher Place Resort, quietly boasting breathtaking views and serene silence. Away from your hurried routines, you recline, rediscover, and rekindle.

You are invited to quiet relaxation in our many spacious common areas, offering you the choice of gentle conversation or peaceful solitude.

Our bed and breakfast resort offers many on-site activities. Swimming, hiking, tennis, and billiards will have you in a fun-filled competition with your partner. Or, if you’d rather head out to explore, we’re sure you’ll enjoy all that the Smoky Mountains have to offer: rock climbing, white water rafting, horseback riding, canoeing, and more. With 700 miles of trails, adventure awaits visitors to Smoky Mountain National Park.

Once you return to our Smoky Mountain resort, you’re sure to enjoy a cocktail at the Marston’s Library Pub, taking a dip in the outdoor pool, or getting a quick work out in by visiting our fitness room.

Please Note: Tennis courts are open but we ask that guests provide their own racket and balls. Other common areas may also have limited access to reduce potential health and safety risks.

Then, sit back and soak in the beautiful views of the Smoky Mountains from a rocking chair on the veranda. Wrap up in a towel and enjoy the luxurious sauna. Snuggle up next to a roaring fire. The atmosphere is so tranquil and relaxing, you’ll feel your stress melt away.

Enjoy a four-course, candlelit meal at our Gatlinburg fine dining restaurant, located here at Christopher Place. Romantic melodies drift through the parlor as the sun sets and the mountains return to their slumber. The silence of the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee is broken only by the gentle splash of champagne.

This romantic getaway all takes place with the beautiful Smokies as the backdrop. Wildflowers carpet the hills in bright colors from Spring to Autumn. Waterfalls – refreshing and cool in Summer or frozen and sparkling in Winter – can be found through the forests, charming hikers with their beauty.

Ode to Bluebell

While there are several faces you’ll get to know while at Christopher Place Resort, one you’ll never forget is Bluebell. Bluebell was a super friendly, outgoing cat who loves to lead guests on hikes around the property. We are so thankful that we had her with us to enjoy and leave an impression on the guests of Christopher Place through the summer of 2021.

“…everyone on the staff went above and beyond expectations in making our stay enjoyable. Everyone we met was friendly and eager to make our stay perfect. Even Bluebell the cat walked us back to our room after breakfast!” – Allen A., Oct 2019

“…the house kitty Bluebell made everything special. She is such an awesome kitty… she literally hiked the entire mountain with us and basically lead the way… I miss her already!” – JCP, TripAdvisor

Meet Charlotte

While we are so sad to say goodbye to Bluebell, we have loved having a cat welcome our guests, walk around our property, and bring so much joy to people. That being said, meet Charlotte, the newest member of the Christopher Place team.
