The Ultimate Meal

Fine dining is different at every restaurant, but there is something magical about having a fully prepared gourmet meal in the privacy of your luxurious mountain cabin. Lucky for us, so many of the finest award-winning international chefs have found their way to the Appalachian mountains, tired of the hassle of metropolitan restaurant life, and a few special ones chose to settle right here in Blue Ridge to share their talents.  

These professional chefs will come to your cabin, prepare an incredible meal suited to your tastes and dietary needs, and the best part is they clean up all the mess! The surprising part, is this 5-star service is much more affordable than you might think. Seriously. It is! We recommend you consider one of these amazing options (listed alphabetically because we love all 3!) on your next Escape to Blue Ridge.

  1. I would more details and menu ideas/quote for dinner four 6 adults and 7 kids.

    1 night 3/15 – 3/17

    The 5 spiced trout looks perfect on the webpage. Local fish sounds great.
    Also would like a killer dessert, and cookies.

  2. My wife and I are frequent visitors to the Escape to Blue Ridge Cabins and have never tried the Ultimate Meals. All the chef’s sound fabulous so we are leaving it up to you to chose one to contact us. We are coming up for the week of February 22. I would like to arrange something for Wednesday February 24th. We are staying at the Paradise Ridge Cabin.

    Thank you for your assistance!

A good many of our restaurants do offer vegetarian options like The Rum Cake Lady, Southern Charm, Mystic Mountain Pizza, and Hansen’s Grill!
