  • Family Christmas After the New Year

    "What a wonderful time we had at your Cocobelle Retreat last weekend. There were 17 of us between the ages of 4 and 84 - we all had a very good time and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep. The house was just about perfect for us and the location will keep us coming back once or twice a year! The owners even found a forgotten object and offered to mail it to the rightful owner. They answered all of our questions before and during our stay in a timely manner. There were plenty of good movies to watch - but we didn't need them as we had great weather and spent most of our time outside. There were games, a well stocked kitchen, plenty of supplies and linens for everyone. This place is one of the best we rented since our Mom became too frail to have Christmas at her home. Even she enjoyed the time away, and spent most of her day sitting in the recliner (or on her throne as she called it) watching us all celebrate our time together."

  • Home away from home!

    "My family and I arrived the day after Christmas. The condo was beautiful and had everything that we needed. Location is excellent and the grounds of the condo are very well maintained. Robin is fantastic to work with and communicates exceptionally. Very close to Dollywood and all the restaurants. Will be back! Thanks Robin!"

  • Great House

    "This was a great house in spite of the stairs to the dock. I would suggest putting a railing up one side. We have stayed at many vacation rentals and I must say the owners of this property stock so many extras that I have not seen at other houses such as, first aid supplies, extra batteries, extra toiletries, very thoughtful. I will say to future guests if you are bringing a boat it would be better to put in at Jimmy's Place which by the way has great catfish. If you have people in your party that can not walk well pick them up at the neighborhood access dock # 1 easy walk with a railing. The lake is beautiful and we had a very restful vacation for a change instead of visiting an area and doing so much sightseeing we hardly enjoyed the property or got any rest. 3 generations and 2 old doggies."

  • Log-N-Time

    "Photos can't do this cabin justice! It is so cozy, exceptionally clean and well-kept, and has absolutely everything you need. The furnishings and Christmas decorations made it the perfect place for a relaxing weekend at Dale Hollow. Ken was so helpful every step of our booking process and was so easy to get in touch with."

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!
