  • Wonderful!

    "This is a clean, beautifully decorated farmhouse in a peaceful, lovely location. Everything you need plus more is provided, and it is offered at a very reasonable price with no hidden fees. My family and I were very comfortable and it was truly a home away from home. I loved sitting on the back deck and on the front porch watching the horses graze close by in the fields. To me it was a perfect place to stay and I highly recommend it."

  • Birthday Weekend Getaway

    "This was our second visit to Welcome Valley Village. Last summer we took the kids and rented The Pines, this time around it was The Ocoee House (just the hubby and me). Our stay, like the first time, was nothing short of fantastic. The property is not only beautiful, but maliciously managed. The cabins are far enough away from one another that there is a real sense of privacy. Having the river right outside your door was one of the best parts. We so enjoyed our stay that we are looking to book our third excursion. Welcome Valley is a wonderful place to stay, kids or no kids, for honeymooners, those who just want to get some peace and quiet, and for adventure seekers. The cabins are very clean, inviting, and absolutely charming. Weather one is sitting by fire, in the Jacuzzi, rocking in the rocking chairs out on the front porch, there is no way to miss the beauty and tranquility of this hidden treasure!!!"

  • Excellent cabin for a wedding!

    "We just enjoyed a beautiful wedding for our daughter at Chardonnay at Sunset. It is the perfect place for a family wedding. We had 30 people attend and it was so roomy and comfortable with the large living areas and kitchen, and great parking areas. The porches with their beautiful views made for some great wedding pictures. I would highly recommend Chardonnay at Sunset to anyone wanting a cabin wedding."

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!
