5 Great Reasons to Plan Your Knoxville Holiday Party at Dancing Bear Lodge

It’s never too early to start planning your group’s Knoxville Holiday Party or Maryville Office Holiday Party. Now that fall has arrived, Dancing Bear Lodge wants to encourage you to book your event now so you stand a greater chance of getting our facilities and accommodations on the choice of dates you really want.

Five Reasons to Book Your Knoxville Holiday Party at Dancing Bear Lodge Right Now

1: Our Smoky Mountain Luxury Resort

No party is too small or too large for choosing Dancing Bear Lodge as your Maryville TN holiday party venue. Parties ranging from 12 to 60 people are all welcome, and our property offers a lot of great activities that mesh well with corporate holiday party ideas, from Christmas dinner parties at the Bistro to roasting s’mores around the fire pit after. Neighboring Apple Valley Mountain Village offers opportunities for your group to get many of their Christmas shopping items checked off the list. Suggestion: Reward your company’s top performers with an overnight stay in one of the cabins, villas or other accommodations at our Smoky Mountains Luxury Resort, adding the company expense to your end-of-the-year accounting for tax deductions (and create a great incentive to meet your fourth quarter goals). We’re offering a discount on overnight accommodations for your group when booking 6 or more cabins at the same time. You don’t mind having some extra holiday cash to spend on friends and family during the holiday season, right?

2: The Gorgeous Views of Beautiful Mountains

Townsend, Cades Cove, and the Smokies, in general, become very popular as the leaves change colors in the fall. In fact, some people make an annual tradition of visiting our corner of East Tennessee to view autumn’s yearly show within the window of opportunity to see this spectacle at its optimal state. Yet another reason to book sooner rather than later. Even after the trees shed their leaves, the area offers a scenic wonderland, as well as great opportunities for shopping at stores in Apple Valley Mountain Village, Townsend businesses, and others in the area.

3: Amazing Food for Christmas Dinner

Looking for Christmas Dinner Ideas for a large group? Experience a bit of Christmas magic with delicious libations and top-notch service from our on-site gourmet restaurant, the Dancing Bear Appalachian Bistro. Your mouths will water as you sample the unique flavor combinations created by Chef Shelley Cooper. We dare to say that the cuisine presents a major perk of choosing Dancing Bear Lodge to host your Knoxville office holiday party. With the recent addition of The Dancing Bean Coffee Shop & Bakery next door, you have even more opportunities to savor Shelley’s baked creations, as well as locally brewed coffees. Add the Apple Valley Café to the mix and you have all of the ingredients for a delicious group getaway.

4. Peace of Mind

A Knoxville holiday cocktail party is a great chance to everyone to relax and celebrate a successful year. As Townsend’s only full-service bar program, we have just the right spirits to raise your festive spirit. And with accommodations available on the same property as our event venue, Dancing Bear Lodge makes it easy for guests to enjoy themselves with a delicious cocktail without worrying about having to drive home afterward. It’s easy to get a restful night of sleep when you have peace of mind. We can also arrange to send a shuttle to pick up your group from either the West Town Mall or East Town Mall in Knoxville or the Foot Hills Mall in Maryville, returning everyone safe and sound after the party ends. Please specify you want this option when discussing your event with Amie Wendel in our office (she’s at extension 3!).

5. We’re Fun!

All of the above are great, but we know what you really want: to relax in a cozy Smoky Mountain Resort where you can have a GOOD TIME! Our friendly staff loves making sure you enjoy your time with us and leave with smiles and good memories. Once you speak with Amie, you’ll get a sampling of the delights that await you.

Why wait? Call us now to cross your Knoxville or Maryville holiday party planning off your list this busy autumn.
