2. Fine Waterfront Dining

If you visited last year your palet will probably never be the same and neither will ours. Our creative culinary team have a gift for designing menus that not only feature unique “farm to fork” cuisine but somehow they also infuse their passion for locally sourced ingredients and authentic southern flare. There is just something that feels so right sitting on our outside waterfront deck with a handcrafted cocktail and one of our signature shrimp, burgers or crab dishes.  Stay tuned for more about our new tasty creations coming this spring.

3. Lake Cruising

Our fleet of pontoon boats have been serviced and are ready to go cruising!   They were in such demand last year that we’ll be adding a couple more in the next few weeks.  We have one with a water slide and we also offer inner tubes as well as Lilly pads to make the day even more fun.  Our paddleboards and kayaks are getting dusted off too and just need water and you.

4. So Many Options for Fun

Yes, it is true that you’ll get here and not want to leave.  We quite understand and it is perfectly acceptable. It’s hard to leave the solitude or turn down a good game of bocci ball with your family or walk away from one of our shoreline bonfires.
We do want you to venture out though. We hope you can step beyond our lakeside respite and discover our historic little river town of Granville .  You can lose yourself along the beautiful windy country roads.  Let them lead you to a nearby hiking trail, a horseback ride, a tasting at a winery or brewery, but don’t forget to set the GPS so you find your way home.

5. 50% Off Pontoon Rentals

Yep, that’s right.  When you stay with us two nights this season you’ll have an opportunity to reserve one of the luxury pontoons for a half-day at half price.  They come with life jackets and everything you need, but you should call to make these reservations as the boats are limited and book up quickly.

6. Mr. Matt

There was only going to be 5 reasons to come back to Wildwood, but lucky you, you get a bonus. If you’ve met him you’ll know.  If you haven’t… you will.  But when you visit you’ll be treated to one of the biggest hearts and kindest smiles you’ll ever find.  His own Wildwood Breeze story will be coming soon.

Winter is in full effect at Wildwood. Bare trees, big fires, and our beautiful lake make it the perfect place to enjoy a woodsy winter in Tennessee. Make your reservations today!
