Simply Gorgeous

The Norris Dam Tea Room and Amphitheater was perfect for our wedding day. Gorgeous scenery and buildings. They had everything we needed for an incredible price! I would highly recommend to anyone who loves historic buildings and enjoys the beauty of East Tennessee!

Cancelled All Other Venue Tours After Seeing This One

We knew we wanted an outdoor venue near Knoxville where all of our friends and family could hang out for the weekend and out of town guests could stay nearby. We toured the amphitheater and tea room, and both were perfect for the woodsy vibes we wanted for our wedding. Then when Ranger Trent showed us the cabin area, we were sold. We cancelled all our other venue appointments that day and went on a cave tour with Ranger Trent in the afternoon instead.

The scenery is beautiful, the rustic cabins are wonderfully updated and comfortable, the tea room needs almost no extra decoration to be cute, and the amphitheater is simple but lovely.

At the time of our rental, it only cost $2000 tax included, for 3 day rental of the tea room, the amphitheater, and the newly renovated bride house (former ranger residence). They gave us a key for everything when we checked in, and then we had the run of the place for all of our organizing and celebrations. The bride house has a room set up with wall length mirrors and plugs for a mini salon for getting ready. The tea room was perfect for a 100 person wedding with a rocking dance floor. It also comes with tables and chairs for 75 people.

We loved everything about this venue, and so did our guests!
