Chilhowee Mountain Retreat is truly a 5 star B & B. The innkeepers Jim & Mary have incorporated so many wonderful touches to make your stay unforgettable. The attention to detail is spot on. The beds are luxurious, the inn is immaculate, the soft music is soothing, the delicious breakfast & evening snacks are wonderful and the view is breathtaking....

We haven't given many 5 stars to b&b's in the past but Chilhowee is a joy to stay in and a pleasure to review. It's perfect! Located at an elevation of 2,200 feet on Chilhowee mountain, the lodge style retreat has three guest rooms. We stayed in the forest view room which is located in a separate building from the...

Couldn't have found a more perfect way to celebrate my husband's retirement. Our time on the mountain was the ultimate deep breath -- inhale, exhale, unwind, look ahead with joy and anticipation. CMR is the essence of Nature, the serenity of escape, the luxury of the finest accommodation and the balm of being pampered all rolled into one incredible experience...

A repeat of many other posts, but worth repeating. Everything was beautiful, clean, amazing views. And, the most comfortable bed ever! The ride up the mountain was scary/exciting/amazing. Worth the price of admission right there! Our trip was in October 2015, but there isn't an option for that.

Chilhowee Mountain Retreat is absolutely amazing! The room was beyond what we could have imagined! Tons of space, very luxurious...and the SofTub on our deck was awesome! The view of the mountains was amazing and the hosts we very kind and helpful but also gave us space. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend this beautiful getaway to anyone!

Chilhowee Mountain Retreat is a perfect getaway, removed from the bustling traffic and noise, perfectly situated on top of the Chilhowee Mountain range west of Townsend (~45 min by car). It is a bit of an adventure just to find the retreat, meandering over twists and turns of mountain roads - delightful all by itself. The high elevation rewards visitors...

Weather was perfect, Jim and Mary are the most accommodating hosts! The property is beautiful, views are breathtaking, and we were in the mountain view room-amazing back porch. Well furnished room, all the details were taken care of. They had soda and water in the fridge, snacks on the sideboard, and lots of information for the rest of our trip!...

From Bar Harbor to Key West to San Diego to Seattle, Chilhowee Mountain Retreat is our most favorite place to stay. Mary and Jim are fabulous hosts and provide fantastic breakfasts. We have stayed in all three rooms. The Forest View is our favorite. It has its own hot tub. The beds in all three rooms are very comfortable and...

Comfortable accommodations, loved the soak tub, breakfast was delicious, quiet and beautiful views. The drive up is steep but its not so bad and a little adventurous. Innkeepers are delightful hosts. They are only a 20 minute drive to trail heads nearby. We hiked the Abrams Creek Falls 10.2 miles round trip trail and we did not see another human...

Very nice mountain B & B with excellent long range views. 3 guest rooms, two in the main lodge and one over the garage. Innkeepers very friendly and good story tellers, gave us good advise on restaurants and what to look at during the day.
