  • Great Place

    "Provided a great place for my team to come together and bond, we had everything we could have asked for. As the first visitors of the year there were some hiccups, but the owners tried to take care of everyone timely. Impressed parents and the girls alike."

  • Honeymoon stay

    "The cabin was clean and inviting upon arrival. There were many helpful tips and instructions for everything in the cabin as well as useful information about the surrounding area. The view was breathtakingly beautiful. We enjoyed our honeymoon and the quietness of the mountains. We really enjoyed eating at Chop's near the Tanger outlet mall in Sevierville and will be stopping to eat there again on our way out. Thanks Robin Armstrong for making our trip easy and memorable."

  • Delightful Place to Stay

    "We stayed here while we attended a convention at Thompson Boling Arena. It was only about a 15-20 minute drive, and we certainly enjoyed the beauty and serenity of the location. We didn't get to spend much time here but thoroughly enjoyed the time we did. The house is very neat and clean and well equipped. We had my elderly parents with us, and they loved it. We gave them the master bedroom, and they said the bed was wonderful. We ate breakfast there before we left and prepared supper whien we returned and had everything we needed. We also appreciated the kindness of the owners and certainly enjoyed the fruit, candy, and garden goodies they provided for us. Wonderful people to deal with. They also mailed a package to my parents who left a couple of articles at the house, and that was very much appreciated. We would definitely recommend this place, and if we ever have a need to stay in Knoxville again, we will certainly try to stay here again."

  • South Holston Lakehouse

    "Had a great vacation week with our family of 6 at this house. The floor plan was perfect for us and our grown children. Plenty of spaces indoors and out for whole group and small group gatherings...reading, napping, cooking, playing games. There is a gorgeous view from every room in the house. We enjoyed being next door to the marina, swimming off the dock, kayaking and boating with friends. House was well stocked and owners are gracious about sharing their home and its contents...kitchen supplies, life jackets, floats, etc. It was a wonderful week and we hope to stay there 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!
