  • Fantastic Cabin!

    "My husband and I stayed in this beautiful cabin over the Thanksgiving holiday, and it definitely exceeded our expectations. This was our first opportunity to make our own Thanksgiving dinner because we usually go to another family member's house. The kitchen was indeed fully stocked, and we found it had even more items than we have in our own kitchen at home! The seclusion and beauty of this cabin helped to make the holiday very special for us :). The cabin was also very clean, and the master bathroom is absolutely gorgeous! We have stayed at a few other cabins in the Gatlinburg area, and Tranquility was far superior in our opinion. Unlike other cabins that are so close to each other that privacy is practically non-existent, we only saw one car pass by the road during our entire stay and could only see one cabin way up the hill. This will definitely be our go-to cabin now, and we hope to stay even longer next time!"

  • Family Getaway

    "We had a wonderful time!! The cabin is beautifully appointed with great porches for morning coffee and relaxing to enjoy the stars after and late night dip in the hot tub. Dish TV, pool table, hot tub, Wii, and lots of games. There are tons of activities in nearby Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg of miniature golf, laser tag, tons of family restaurants, nightly shows and entertainment. Dollywood is nearby as are Wonderworld, an aquarium, and Ripley's Believe or Not. Nearby Smokey National Mountain National Park offers terrific hiking trails and great scenic beauty. We had a fabulous family vacation and will definitely be back!!."

  • Perfect Family Getaway!!

    "Fantastic stay in the mountains! Beautiful cabin and view. Everything you need right there. Kids got to swim in the pool and play outside. It has video games and a pool table. Nice gas lit fireplace by the kitchen. The porch has a nice swing with great view! The grocery store is comparable to Publix and only 10 minutes in town. Gatlinburg is beautiful with a lot of entertainment and Pigeon Forge was only 20-25 minutes and hosts everything you could want to do and explore...including shows, attractions, and even an outlet mall. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a private relaxing vacation from it all. Ted and Sandra were readily available by phone for any questions. Deposit check came back promptly as we arrived home. Thanks for the wonderful stay!"

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!
