Let Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort be your gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains—it all starts with a postcard-worthy mountain drive.
Nestled in the heart of western North Carolina’s Great Smoky Mountains, Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort is surrounded by natural beauty. Its secluded location translates to plenty of pre- and post-meeting outdoor activities, but the journey to the resort itself is an experience all its own. Let it be a precursor to the mountain majesty that awaits.
Make an Entrance
The scenic drive from Asheville Regional Airport will give your attendees their first glimpse of the breathtaking Great Smoky Mountains. Book a private car service to take your group on a 60-minute ride through the rolling countryside, where sun-dappled foothills gently transform into green-covered mountain peaks. Tip: Plan a fall event at the resort and your attendees can marvel at the area’s famous multicolored foliage.
While staying at Harrah’s Cherokee, your attendees will enjoy preferred access to one of the top new golf courses in the country, Sequoyah National Golf Club. Arrange for a round-robin tournament or networking events at this Robert Trent Jones II-designed championship course set among oak trees, fir trees, flower-covered valleys and mountain vistas.
On the Fly
Every year, people travel from all over the country to Cherokee to try their hand at some of the best trout fishing in America. A fly-fishing excursion to any of the well-stocked Enterprise Waters—which include most of the Raven Fork, Oconaluftee River and Soco watersheds—is perfect for team-building retreats. If you’ve got a tight schedule, you don’t even have to leave the resort’s grounds to let them cast a line, since Soco Creek runs right through the property.
Into the Woods
The sprawling Great Smoky Mountains National Park sits at the resort’s doorstep with the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway just one mile away. Encourage attendees to take advantage of the park’s year-round activities such as hiking, whitewater rafting and canoeing.
