The creative minds behind the Ancient Lore Village once proposed in South Knoxville have shifted gears from a full-scale resort to a proposal for a unique event venue.

In December, developers withdrew the idea of creating the world's first "story resort" based on an 88-page book by Tom Boyd, father of interim UT president and businessman Randy Boyd.

With a unique fantasy-type dwelling already completed, the developers promised they would come up with a new use for the property.

They are now set to propose a wedding and event venue with overnight accommodations called Ancient Lore Village at Boyd Hollow.

According to the Use on Review application submitted to the Knoxville-Knox County Planning board, the venue will include a permanent 5,000 square-feet event pavilion that will accommodate 200 people, a temporary event tent, an animal barn and pasture and coffee shop. They will also accommodate overnight guests in a 2-bedroom cottage, a building with seven guest rooms, and 15-30 treehouse-style guest rooms.

The resort would not be open to the general public but only to people who book events and their guests.

They anticipate hosting 75-150 events every year.
