  • Cozy home away from home

    "Beautiful cabin centrally located between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and only minutes from the Great Smokies National Park with trails and waterfalls. Loved being so close to Cades Cove only about 30-45 minutes away. Kids loved the pool table which kept them occupied while we were HOME. Really enjoyed our stay Johnny and Janice are great!!!"

  • Picture Perfect

    "This is my favorite small cabin. I am a builder from out of town working in the area and have stayed in the cabin many times. Its been a great option for me. If I have to work out of town I could not find a nicer way to off set the stresses of travel. Its close to Cleveland but very private and peaceful. I love walks along the river and then a fire on the deck to wind down. Its so nice to stop at the grocery store and have some of my meals in the comfort and privacy of my own cabin (not mention save money) I like it so much I brought my wife and daughter up for new years. We had outings to Gatlinburg, Chattanooga, Rock City and more all easy to get to. I was staying in the cabin just recently when a bigger than expected snow storm came through. I got stranded in Old Fort at my current project. After several hours of trying to figure how to get back to Welcome Valley (not even my manager who lives blocks from the project would come out to help me) I called to see if Kevin could help. He had just been out on the slippery roads for 3 hours (its rare for this much snow) getting his family home but offered to come all the way out and pick me up. You could not find better host anywhere. I am headed back today and will staying in the Ivy again. This is a place you have to experience your self."

  • Awesome Cabin in the Woods!

    "Heavenly Daze is simply delightful! I love all the trees that make it so rustic. I love the screen porch where I can go and have my morning coffee without all the bugs and that goes for the evenings too. The lower deck is a classic place to have any meal. It's so quiet and peaceful too. The fire Pit is a master peice!"

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!
