Our family of two teenagers, my wife, our dog and I just spent a one night stay at Charit Creek Lodge. It was an easy two and a half hour ride from Knoxville. We hiked in on the twin arches trail, the arches are spectacular. The lodge is exactly what the website promised, rustic and relaxing, in a remote setting. The new proprietor and his team did all they could to make our stay enjoyable. We opted for the full service package which included supper and breakfast. The food was good down home comfort food and there was plenty of it. The other guests were fun to talk to and relax with. The rooms while very basic were clean and provided a good nights sleep. Our only complaint was that the price was a little high, but then again we had good family time, ate great food, saw beautiful scenery, met nice people and slept in a log cabin built in 1817 so I all in all it was a good trip. We will definitely go back.
