  • Definitely would go back!

    "We stayed in the condo 3 nights. Very nicely decorated and maintained. We had a private little patio overlooking the lake, loved it! The lake is beautiful and huge. We rented a pontoon on the lake and enjoyed stopping at some of the other resorts as well. Nice gated pool area and clubhouse with workout room. Would definitely go back!"

  • "Cub House" a Wonderful Cabin

    "Recently returned from our fourth stay at "Cub House". This is a great cabin with beautiful views. This trip has become an annual getaway for my wife, myself and two other couples we have been friend with for over 25 yrs. Can't imagine finding a cabin that would better suit our need for this trip. "Cub House" has three master suites w/king beds and full baths including jacuzzi tubs in each. Easy to get to with all paved roads and plenty of parking. Appox. 10 - 12 mins from outlet malls or heart of the Pigeon Forge strip. The cabin is accurately described in listing, clean and comfortable. Great cabin to spent days shopping, hiking, golf, shows, dining out, or just hanging out grilling, relaxing while soaking up the views. We plan to continue this annual trip with friends and "Cub House" will be apart of that plan."

  • Fit like a glove!

    "Although we live locally on Norris Lake, when my brother arrived from CT for two weeks we wanted to show him the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg areas. It was too far to make daily trips and I searched for a very long time for a cabin that was close to everything. Because one guest had some disabilities, we needed a cabin on one level and (for safety) a walk-in shower. And because we are retired and on a budget, this cabin had to be reasonably priced. It took some searching before I found Heaven's Door and it was perfect. The cabin was clean, not far from the Parkway and yet when there we felt as if we were remote! MAYBE a dozen cars drove by in a 24 hour period. The cabin had all appliances that we needed; a TV in each room allowing those of us with diverse tastes to watch something different; efficient air conditioning and fans in each room and (very important here...) a walk-in shower and a hot tub to soothe aching muscles. With the exception of the government shutdown closing the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and not being allowed to hike, park or even stop and look with all roads except 441 being closed, it was a perfect vacation for the 4 of us and a wonderful cabin that met all of our needs. Now we wish we'd brought the dogs!"

  • Amazing Getaway

    "We were fortunate to stay at The OAKS for a second time this past week. It was as fabulous as last time. Extremely nice with plenty of room. The pool table, air hockey, & foosball tables were a huge hit with the kids & we loved sitting on the swing relaxing in the quiet. Miss Sara was beyond helpful in preparing for our stay. We had no problems at all & recommend anyone in giving Sara a call to book The Oaks."

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!
