Smoky Mountain Marriage Adventures

Discover the Intimacy of Marriage at the HistoricTapoco Lodge

May 19-21 (Registration opens in February)

Imagine… your marriage the way God intended it to be. What if your marriage reflected the oneness, intimacy, and holiness that God desires? We are excited to announce the debut of our newest Appalachian marriage adventure in the Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina. This 3-day romantic getaway at the historic Tapoco Lodge includes luxurious accommodations, gourmet meals and the same fun and adventure-based activities as many of our other getaways.


This Marriage Getaway weekend offers an intimate and intentional opportunity for couples to enrich their marriage in ways that go far beyond imagination. Whether it’s a time of renewal that you desire or just some alone time with your spouse, our Smoky Mountain marriage adventure offers the perfect balance of romance, laughter, and intentionality that will help take your marriage to new heights of intimacy and oneness.


During the weekend, couples will be awakened to the five pillars of intimacy as part of our newly developed Intimacy of Marriage® series designed to promote the much-needed alone time for couples - away from the busy and hurried rush of life. Couples will also discover effective and practical ways to enhance communication, regulate conflict, and strengthen marital friendship the way God intended.


The Historic Tapoco Lodge is tucked away on 120 acres in the lush Smoky Mountains of the Nantahala National Forest situated on the banks of the cascading Cheoah River. This luxurious getaway is well known for its hiking, rafting, kayaking, zip lining, fishing and mountain biking. Tapoco is approximately located on the world famous Tail of the Dragon, an 11-mile scenic stretch of road, which makes it a favorite destination for motorcyclists and sports car enthusiasts.
