Meyer and Jane Davis were married and honeymooned at Deer Ridge 20 years ago almost to the day. 3 months ago Jane Davis called Joe Thomas requesting help planning a vow renewal and 4 night romantic getaway. Jane and Joe worked together and planned a wonderful vow renewal ceremony on the Deer Ridge Sundeck and reception in our new Lobby Lounge.  Jeff Ownby was the presiding minster during the vow renewal which took place on October 18, 2014 .

Rocky Top Sports World hosts Labor Day Soccer Tournament

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Rocky Top Sports World, the new sports complex just down the road from Deer Ridge Mountain Resort, held its first event – The Labor Day Weekend Soccer Invitational Tournament.  The tournament was held on Friday August 29 and Saturday August 30, 2014.  Deer Ridge had its first bookings from a Rocky Top Sports World event, hosting the TN Soccer Club U12 group.  The kids and the parents were very positive about the resort!  We are going to host members and families of the No Excuse Lacrosse team who will be visiting for a Lacrosse tournament in October.

Deer Ridge Mountain Resort is working hard to use our close proximity to the new facility to bring in additional business, check out our new website


Here are some pictures of the soccer players enjoying the new facilities at Rocky Top Sports World:

2014 Family Reunions at Deer Ridge Mountain Resort

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

It has been a booming summer for family reunions at Deer Ridge Mountain Resort!  We’ve been so busy with assisting guests that it has taken me awhile to get to reporting about how great our summer is going.  We are still busy but time allows for a  quick report.  This summer we have had the pleasure of hosting the:

Smith-Gholson Family

Lindsey Family

Burke Family

Yates Family

Baechler Family

Call-Steele Family

for their family reunions.  We get the pleasure of hosting the Valentine Family this week and the Mazanowski Family next week.  Whew!

I haven’t even gotten to our military reunions, non family groups, and weddings yet – that post is coming later this week, or maybe next – like I said, we are still very busy here on the Ridge!

Thought you might enjoy seeing one of our groups enjoying their stay at Deer Ridge Mountain Resort.  These pictures are courtesy of the Lindsey Family:

Fall golf groups visit Deer Ridge Mountain Resort

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

This fall is giving us beautiful weather and allowing golf groups to really enjoy their visits to Deer Ridge Mountain Resort. We have hosted the Simmons golf group (1st time visitors) and the Newman golf group (past guests) during the month of September. We are looking forward to having Lockheed Martin from the Marietta GA facility back with us this year. This golf group visited us for the first time last year – and they are bringing a bigger group back this year! They will be here Oct. 10-14 and have booked 20 rooms for this year’s outing. We are glad to have these folks back with us!
