Tailwaters lodge is proud to offer a variety of food options for you – ranging from meals prepared directly by a private chef to meals dropped off at your cabin, or just simply making sure your cabin is stocked with food! Choose one or more options over the course of your stay; for example, enjoy a meal prepared by a private chef one evening and have a prepared meal dropped off for the second. Set your meals to fit your need, and all your meals will be enjoyed in the privacy and comfort of your cabin. Call us at 423-573-3999 to arrange your catering needs, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Orders must be placed four days before needed to give time for the caterer to schedule. Or, if you prefer to not use our catering services, then Food City Grocery store is only five miles away. All our cabins have well-appointed kitchens if you want to prepare your own meals.
Your private chef will either grill or prepare a delicious meal at your cabin depending on your choice. Chefs provide all table set-up and clean-up. Your chef will arrive at 5 pm to begin set-up, offer your dinner at 6 pm, and then depart by 7 pm. A gratuity is appreciated, but not expected. Choose from:
