Tucked deep in a hollow of the Southern Appalachians is Timberfell Lodge, a paradise for men seeking either solitude or camaraderie with their gay brothers and where inhibitions are shed as easily as clothing…
What To Do First? After breakfast and conversations lingering over fresh-brewed coffee, guests head for the pool, hike the gentle or more demanding trails circling the lodge property, or do nothing at all. This is when camaraderie is strongest and new friendships are forged. If the thought of getting dirt on your dock siders or having your hair mussed by tree branches drives you crazy, there are a number of alternatives to a wilderness walk.
Timberfell’s Memorial Garden, built with donations from Timberfell’s guests. This beautiful garden is a wonderful place for reflection and meditation. Just down the hill from the main house is the Pool Complex. Swim in the large, 20′ by 40′ heated pool or simply watch while sunbathing. Relax in the steam room or redwood sauna. Towels are provided for guests’ convenience while at the pool. Chilled beer, snacks and other refreshments are sold poolside by the attendant. The Pool Complex has complete bathroom facilities. Those who understand and relish all the intricacies of fishing may catch “the big one” in the afternoon in the stocked pond.
Timberfell operates on a modified American Plan making it a complete resort for all your lodging needs. Our dining facility offers a full breakfast, and an American cuisine style dinner. We can also cater to any special dietary need, and make each meal a dining experience fun and enjoyable. The warm baked breads and delicious desserts will linger in your memories forever. Beer is sold at the lodge and Tennessee law prohibits guests from bringing beer on or off the premises. You’re always welcome to bring your own hard liquor or wine.
Back at the lodge, the vaulted Great Room is another favorite spot for socializing before the enormous stone fireplace. There is a TV, DVD player and satelite, and everyone is free to enjoy it as they choose. You may wish to relax in a heavenly 20-man sauna or “plunk” on the over sized porch and watch the sun setting between the mountains. As deep night settles in, men wander off in pairs or groups to do what comes naturally in this natural setting. The sun, hiking and, believe it or not, just doing nothing take their toll, and you sleep like a babe in this tranquil quiet woods.
