  • Beyond Our Expectation!

    "The weekend was spectacular! We rented this lodge for a women's retreat. There is a guest house that we did not need which does give you more room. We had 22 ladies and there was plenty of beds in the rooms and bathrooms (we even had enough hot water for all the showers). There is a pool table and air hockey table as well. Every lady had very positive things say from how clean it was to the beautiful lodge itself and the absolutely beautiful scenic view even before springtime. There are 2 kitchens but the main level kitchen was all we needed. When we arrived the maintenance guy was there to meet us and had everything ready including the hot tub. We loved the movie theater on the first floor so that we could cheer on our Kentucky Wildcat Basketball team to end the regular season 31-0! It was only a short drive to the outlet centers and Apple Barn but there is a grocery and Walgreen's very near the lodge just in case you forgot something. The owner was very easy to work with and very hospitable. She texted while we were there to make sure everything was going ok. I would highly recommend staying here!"

  • Great Get-away

    "We used the cabin as a weekend get away and had a wonderful experience. The cabin is far enough outside Cleveland that you feel you are in the country but close enough to enjoy shopping and eating in the city. The cabin was beautiful and felt like home in the sense that the you could tell the care and love that went into the furnishings and decor. The area was very quiet and though there are a few neighbors close by you wouldn't know it. Just a great weekend and the owners were prompt with our requests and we found things as advertised. Will stay again."

  • Great Place and Great Price!!!

    "Great Place!!! Terrific Location!!! Very clean, everything was nice. Housekeeping also brought extra sheets and pillow cases by right after we arrived. Nice having the kitchen so you don't have to eat out all the time. Make sure you carry extra toilet paper & paper towels, there was only enough for a couple of days. Also had to buy hand soap for the sinks (there was none), and dish liquid while I was there (there was very little). It was great being close to everything but off the parkway. Weekdays was nice and quite but weekends the neighbors was very loud but I will stay again. Thanks"

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!
