  • Wonderful Vacation Home

    "This is the 2nd time our family has stayed here. We have come twice for Christmas - they have had the home decorated for us, including a tree which is awesome as we have 3 young grandchildren. This is one of the few homes where the beds are queens or kings. In the one, very large, bedroom ~ there are twin beds. This year, they had also a set of bunk beds, which was perfect for my son & his wife and the 2 grandchildren, ages 5 & 7. The home is lovely, the accommodations are wonderful - kitchen is fully stocked, with 2 coffee makers and also a coffee carafe, which is great because we drink both decaf and regular coffee. It is situated in the western edge of the Smokies, which is called 'the peaceful side of the Smokies," which suits us fine - it is just a 45 minute drive to Gatlinburg. The property is beautiful as well. For a large family gathering, there was ample room for every one to have their own space. Having everything, including the front, expansive deck, all on one level was a real plus. We definitely recommend this home."

  • wonderful cabin and owners

    "My husband and I just spent 5 days in this cabin. It was our first vacation with our 11 month old son. The owner was more than helpful letting us know it was ok to bring our son and there were already a couple of baby gates in the cabin. We loved this charming cabin. Very comfortable beds, clean, super quiet, great views, I could go on!! We LOVED this place."

  • Our first stay at The Treehouse

    "My wife and I (and our pet dog) very much enjoyed our stay at Treehouse Hideaway. There were just several cabins reasonably close by but the wooded area made it seem very private. Also, the location was perfect.....only five minutes from stoplight #3 on the parkway. The owner, Amy, was very gracious. She had stayed at the cabin the night before our arrival and noticed a problem with the microwave. She arrived with a new one before we were even unpacked. The cabin was very clean and cozy, and suited our needs very well. We have vacationed in the area for many years and this cabin is definitely one of our favorites."

  • Yea Sewanee's Right....best place ever for our reunion!

    "We just recently celebrated our 25th college reunion on the mountain. This house was big enough and comfortable enough to accommodate me and my husband, my friend and her husband and 2 boys, and my other friend and her adult son. Everyone had their own room and bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked. The house was clean and looked just like the photos. The owner was available by email, text, or phone the entire weekend in case we had any questions. The linens and towels were top notch. We were allowed to take our dog. This house truly felt like home for the weekend. We will be back!"

East Travel Tips

East Tennessee is Easily the Best Vacation Destination

East Tennessee is a region filled with urban areas, sprawling countrysides, plenty of attractions, and lots of adventure opportunities. Check out the Smoky Mountains or hike the Appalachian Trail. Visit towns such as Bristol, Kingsport, Knoxville, and Chattanooga. Have the time of your life with your family and friends at the local attractions. The friendly mountains, broad valleys, and running rivers make any of the many East Tennessee vacation rentals the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The Best Time to Visit East Tennessee

A great time to book East Tennessee resorts is in the fall. Get into Tennessee, see the leaves change for the autumn season and take in the beauty of the Smokey Mountains. In the winter, there are a few cold, wet weeks but overall it is pleasant all year long. The spring and summer offer the perfect weather for outdoor family fun. The first week of November is particularly cold so most visitors avoid that time. Just remember, because the region is surrounded by mountains, the weather can be somewhat unpredictable. It is a good idea to check the weather just before you visit to ensure that you pack the right clothing.

Transportation in East Tennessee

One of the best airports to fly into is Knox County Airport. Another good option is Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport. Both have a wide variety of car rental chains as well and without a car, you will not be getting very far in East Tennessee. A rental car is especially perfect for getting out of your East Tennessee cabins for day trips. Many of the towns in the region do offer free trolleys, public buses, and some taxis.

Perfect Daytrips in East Tennessee

The region has so much to offer that it will be hard to choose where to spend your days. One destination not to miss is the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. It offers an array of wildlife, hiking opportunities, and outdoor adventures. You might do well to visit Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, or even Gatlinburg. For an interesting twist, you might want to visit Rugby, an Edwardian-era village built as a utopian community that has been perfectly preserved. If you want to stay in a city that is centrally located to most popular day trip destinations, Knoxville might be your best bet.

Tennessee Music Culture

Tennessee is known as a melting pot of musical styles and influences. From the eastern border, Appalachian folk songs and bluegrass were born. Country music bloomed in Nashville. Rockabilly, blues, gospel, and even rock-n-roll stemmed from the Mississippi belt of the state. To this day, Tennessee-–Nashville in particular–-is a strong musical town. The bustling city of Chattanooga was the inspiration for Glenn Miller’s song “Chattanooga Choo Choo.” If you are up for a day trip away from the area, check out Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley. Music always has been and always will be a large part of the Tennessee culture. That means that there is no shortage of live music performances, musical festivals, and concerts throughout the year.

The State’s Natural Beauty

During your stay in East Tennessee, take some time to enjoy the great outdoors. More than half the state is covered by protected forests, national parks, wilderness, and game preserves. Part of the fun of your vacation will consist of hiking, biking, boating, fishing, and just about any other outdoor activity you can think of. Be sure not to miss the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, Pigeon Forge, and Ruby Falls.

Fun for the Whole Family

East Tennessee has an exceptional list of attractions that the whole family will love. Your itinerary should include stops at the Chattanooga Choo Choo, the Lost Sea, the American Museum of Science and Energy, the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, Rock City, the Tennessee Aquarium, and the Knoxville Zoo. The majestic mountains, fun-filled attractions, and fast rides at the theme parks (Dollywood) will let you find exactly what you are looking for in a family vacation!
