  • Perfect Couple's Getaway!

    "We just got back from our stay and absolutely LOVED our stay here! It is the perfect size for a couple looking for a mountain getaway. The fireplace was cozy and the decorations were adorable. The hot tub would not heat up well the first night, but the maintenance man came by to fix it and we didn't have a problem the rest of our stay! The bed is a bit squeaky, but I slept like a rock each night and it was really roomy and cozy. I also must put in another good word for the maintenance man--we accidentally left a very important item behind and didn't realize it was missing until we got home. Luckily the maintenance man retrieved it for us and got it back to us!! We were very thankful! Overall this is a wonderful cabin, and we are looking forward to returning in the future!"

  • Fun family spring break

    "We have rented through VRBO frequently and always had good luck. This was no exception. Very clean and exactly as pictured. Great views, quiet and private. Our 4 kids (aged 7 - 13) loved having their own arcade and we all enjoyed watching movies together after a day in town. I would recommend you bring beach towels for the hot tub as there were only enough for bathing so I was always drying them! Also remember some dish detergent as there were just 2 packs of dishwasher detergent for 4 days. We ate in most meals so that might not be an issue for others. The kids were all very sad to leave and are already requesting that we go back and stay at this exact cabin."

  • Heaven on earth at Dolly's Shadow

    "We came for a car show and this was the perfect place for us. We have stayed at the owners cabins in the past also and each one is perfect. They go out of their way to make your stay as positive as can be. They even send you lists of ideas of things to do, places to see & eat, great directions and about anything else you could think of. The cabin is beautiful and has all the comforts of home. It is secluded yet close enough to be on the parkway in ten minutes or so, close to all the action. We will be trying to get this cabin when we go back next time. Thanks for everything!!!"

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!
