  • Truly a beautiful view and more!

    "View-topia was the absolute most perfect place we could possibly have stayed at. We enjoyed absolutely everything about it. We had a blast every moment we were there. It was very beautifully decorated and clean. There was plenty of seating throughout the home which was perfectly placed and arranged. We appreciated the music playing when we arrived. The owners were available when we had questions and or concerns. It was very cozy, inviting and comfortable. There was plenty to see on the property. We got to see little creatures us city stickers would never see where we are from. We will definitely be back next year and really hoping to make visiting view-topia a tradition for our family."

  • Perfect Get Away!

    "Great place it was very clean. It had everything there we needed, my kids had a blast playing pool never wanted to come down stairs! Really enjoyed the privacy and just sitting on porch swing looking at the view and relaxing in the hot tub in the evening! We really look forward to going back soon!"

  • Perfect for our large family!

    "We've stayed at this cabin twice now and have had great visits each time! It fits our large extended family perfectly (17) with everyone having our own room and bathroom! The kids love the 2nd floor game room! We had some maintanence issues but all were resolved in a timely manner….could use some updating (new toilets), bigger garage cans and our biggest complaint was not having enough seats in the den by the fireplace. All us adults couldn't sit around comfortably at night to chat...…just need another couch or love seat :) We love how close the house is to downtown and the Smoky Mountains. We will definitely be back for another visit! Thanks!"

  • Nice Cabin

    "As the previous reviewer stated, there were some wasps in the cabin, but only a couple of them that we killed right off and didn't see any more. The cabin looks a little larger in the photos, but we had 4 adults, a teenager, and 3 small children and still had plenty of room. The cabin is in a nice, quiet location between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The road up was steep and we had some issues getting in the driveway. We had to drive up to the end of the road, turn around and come back in due to the angle and steepness of the driveway. It's really not that big of a deal but something to consider if you think about staying in the winter time. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again."

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!
