In the evening you can savor a meal at a local restaurant, attend a play at one of our local theaters, relax and enjoy live music at a street festival, craft beer pub or wine bar. If you are too tired from your active day to go out, then you can head back to Rocky Top Lodge and prepare dinner in the well-appointed kitchen, pick vegetables from our seasonal garden for a fresh salad and enjoy a glass of wine by the fire outside. Hear the wind rustling in the trees and feel the warmth of the fire on your face.
