Dancing Bear Lodge New Construction and Renovations

UPDATE: The Landing event space is completed! We are thrilled to share these photos from our Live on the Lawn Concert Series with you, and we look forward to hosting your next private event in our gorgeous new pavilion! Call 800.369.0111 ext. 3 for more information.

We are thrilled to welcome new additions and renovations this season! They include an expansive new event pavilion, 4 new luxury accommodations, along with beautiful updates to The LeConte cabin and additional renovations to existing loft cabins.

The new pavilion, known as ‘The Landing’, is a grand gathering space adjacent to the Bistro, the Event Center, and Event Lawn, and will be fully built by July 2017. The space can be reserved as part of a wedding package, or a la carte for individual parties and events. With a seating capacity of 125, The Landing will allow us to accommodate weddings and private events, of up to 200 people, by combining our current event space with the new pavilion.

The Landing expands our current space beautifully and will give us the opportunity to host larger weddings, private events, and covered ceremonies. 

In tandem with construction of the new pavilion, we are building 2 additional luxury villas, representing four new rentable accommodations, matching the existing Sugarlands and Clingman’s Dome luxury villas. These enhancements to the property follow shortly behind the renovations that were recently completed to existing accommodations, which upgraded all 2 bedroom Luxury Lofts to include 2 bathrooms.

Our largest cabin, The LeConte, also received some fresh updates for the season, courtesy of interior designer Cris Angsten. As the most multifunctional cabin, The LeConte is used for meetings, bridal parties, business travelers, as well as guests seeking a spacious getaway. The biggest change came into play with a floating wall, situated between the “bedroom” side of the cabin and the “living” side, with the fireplace. This allows for better multifunctional use of the space, without losing the charm.

Additional enhancements we are focusing on include adding a new road for deliveries to the Bistro and additional employee parking.

Book your stay to visit us, and make sure to check out all of these exciting new updates!
