  • Perfect home away from home!

    "Once again Amy did not let us down! She is our "Go to girl" when looking for an "Everything taken care of" cabin rental in the Smokies! Our stay at Waters Edge was just like the last three rental experiences with Amy. She has taken care of issues from needing a fire starter for the grill to obtaining major repairs on the hot tub...all in the name of making our stay a wonderful experience. The cabin was inviting, cozy and very accommodating to our Standard Poodle (a priority for us!) The surrounding area had minimal traffic and was excellent for us to walk around and play. She loved to lay out in the yard and watch the activity on the pond and play fetch on the empty corner lot. We really liked the lay out of the cabin and the two sided fireplace. The cabin was very homey and had everything we needed for our eight day stay including a very comfortable bed. The surrounding views were peaceful and serene and the area very quiet. We appreciated the proximity of the cabin to Pigeon Forge and the easy drive and views along the way to and from wherever we wanted to go. Our time spent at Waters Edge was just what we needed and we were both sad to leave it. Well really the three of us! Thanks again Amy for a great vacation. We'll see you again in the fall!"

    "We were very pleased with Trails End. The cabin was just as described in the listing. The cleanest cabin we have ever stayed in. The bedding and towels were excellent. We did not do much cooking, but what we did we found everything we needed. The kitchen was very well equipped. We especially enjoyed the porches and were amazed at the quietness of the place. There were a couple of problems or I would have given it five stars. We could not get the front door unlocked and the number for the housekeeper was wrong. We did finally get Joan and got the key. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and sharing your cabin. We hopefully plan to return one day."

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!
