Rabbit Run Retreat

A special gathering place amidst the mountains and lakes of beautiful East Tennessee



The Meeting Destination For All Occasions 

Rabbit Run Retreat, located within the city limits of Norris, Tennessee, a small, picturesque cottage community just minutes from Norris Lake, miles of walking and hiking trails and a wooded, 2,500 acre nature preserve, is a perfect enclave for any kind of group activity.

Whether you are searching for a quiet destination for a small corporate retreat, a fun-filled weekend of scrapbooking or quiltmaking or just a girls' get together, you will find our secluded lodge just the place to experience a relaxing weekend or a productive mid-week gathering.  Scrapbookers, quilters and other crafts people will enjoy our large, light-filled workspaces, and business groups will find Rabbit Run Retreat a convenient, economical facility for conferences and workshops.

With six spacious acres of rolling green lawn and towering hardwoods, there's plenty of outdoor space for simply relaxing and enjoying the solitude or hosting an evening cook-out.  Also, our beautiful, park-like grounds offer a wonderful and private setting for weddings or other family events.



Convenient and Affordable

Situated just a few miles off I-75 and less than a thirty-minute drive from downtown Knoxville, Rabbit Run Retreat is close to everything...restaurants, retail shops and plenty of outdoor activities.  Yet, once you pull off the highway and head down the narrow lane to our front door, you'll discover that you have escaped the crowds and congestion of city living.  Instead of hordes of tourists and backed up traffic, here you're surrounded by fresh air, a gentle breeze wafting through the trees and birds all around.

All the essentials needed for a relaxing stay are readily available...five sleeping rooms, a large, fully equipped kitchen, meeting rooms and breakout areas and plenty of quiet, comfortable conversation areas. And if requested, we can arrange to have your meals prepared for you and save our guests the hassle of spending time in the kitchen.
