Each dwelling has been thoughtfully designed and decorated with a unique theme that compliments the personality of a specific character of Ancient Lore Village. Immerse yourself in the splendor of a simpler time while enjoying all the luxuries of a 5-star resort!
Tree Elf Nest
The Tree Elf Nest is the living room social area of the Village designed as a gathering spot, fully provisioned with a beverage and snack bar, games, spacious seating, and a cozy wood-burning fireplace.
The Nest Patio
The Nest Patio is our primary dining area which offers breathtaking views of the Village gardens, waterfall, and the Smoky Mountains.
Ground Elf Burrows
The Ground Elf Burrows is our designated flex space ideal for meetings, dining, entertaining, and special events fully equipped with all the amenities you may need - and a designated staff at your fingertips.
Boyd Hollow Falls
With every stone hand-placed, Boyd Hollow Falls stands at 40 feet tall and has three levels of gathering ponds with rushing blue waters.
Overlooking Boyd Hollow Falls, there are plenty of places to relax, escape, and enjoy at Waterfall Landing. With amphitheater-style seating for up to 50, enjoy a performance overlooking the Smoky Mountains - or you can sneak away to the base of the Falls to soak up the natural sounds. You can also walk to the top of the Falls and get lost in the natural beauty all around! No matter how you choose to enjoy the Waterfall Landing, you're guaranteed to get lost in time.
The Boulders Patio
Looking for a retreat? Privacy and table-side cocktail service await you in this gorgeous outdoor space! The Boulders Patio is the perfect spot for intimate conversation over wine - all while soaking up the views of the Village, the mountains, and Boyd Hollow Falls.
Take a break from enjoying everything the outdoors and gardens have to offer - and dive into food and libations! Providing a full-service bar and grill for lunch and/ or dinner, you'll have craft cocktails, wine, and beer at your, literal, fingertips. Feeling hungry? Let your mind wander with everything from fresh-grilled BBQ to a Hawaiian pig roast!
Among the perfectly curated and designed plants and blooms, find yourself enjoying a luscious space to host, unwind, or enjoy a cocktail hour... or all of the above! You can tee off from the gardens into our floating greens more than 100 yards away in the morning, overlooking a perfect wedding ceremony or reception in the afternoon, and enjoy s'mores by the firepit in the evening. Dynamic in nature, and gorgeous from step to step, the Village Gardens are what (your) dreams are made of!
The outdoor Yeti Cave takes you away as you walk into a time of years gone by where you grab a wassail of whiskey or cider. With bare floors and stone walls, tossing your roasted peanut shells on the ground is encouraged as it only helps with the ambiance of the area! You can step out onto our cigar garden as you sit back and enjoy the finest of cigars.
Looking for a private, immersive, and magical forest hideaway? Meet the Woodland Terrace. With views of the Smoky Mountains and accommodations for up to 250 people, this gorgeous outdoor location is ready for your event with food truck catering and sprawling picnic areas.
Looking for a different kind of sunset view? Perhaps a perfect spot for the perfect question for the perfect person? Or, you've just got an itch for a tee-off like no other? Hike the miles of trails, or hop on a cart, to reach the highest point of Ancient Lore Village! It's, truly, magical.
