  • Great weekend get-a-away location!

    "We rented this chalet for a group of Boy Scouts for a Ski Weekend. Every member of the party absolutely loved the cabin, and the boys especially loved the game room. We had plenty of room for our entire party, and more than enough kitchen amenities to accommodate. The house is very cozy, and the fireplace area was a big hit with our group. You simply can't beat the views, whether it be the lights of Gatlinburg at night, the sunrise over the Smokies, or the full moon rising. The gas grill was a big plus too!!! Loved it. Thank you!"

  • The single most relaxing vacation ever.

    "We went up the week after Christmas. I had researched cabins (never having done this) since April 2014. In the price range I could afford, no one except the Calhouns offered the combination that I wanted. One huge factor is that I read the reviews very closely. Virtually all properties have some negative feedback for what ever reason and usually, it's more than one. Not here. As good as this cabin looks on paper, is magnified two fold in person. First, clever photography usually masks that fact that most cabins have neighbors only 10 - 20 feet away. Big Bear is on a sizable lot with extensive wooded buffers on three sides. Only two cabins are nearby and they are a good 50 yards away. The front is a good 75 yards off of the road with a row of cypress trees covering the view from the road. then there is the inside. Pristine is the adjective that comes to mind regarding the beautiful woodwork ( I believe Mr. Calhoun crafted the furniture). while not a huge amount of square footage, the use of space is amazing. The bedrooms are on opposite ends of the cabin. The living room has a vaulted ceiling that gives a nice 'wow' factor, and the non intrusive decor is great. The bear motif is cleverly mixed with stars throughout. Now to the comfort. The furniture. look at the pictures and at how cozy and comfortable everything looks. Trust me, you will melt into the sofa recliners and the reclining chair. The night we arrived, I settled in to watch an overtime NFL game and didn't last ten minutes. And the beds. Unreal. Truly the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on ever. And I'm 62. There is a great, well cared for Hot tub in it's own room. I've seen the pictures of tubs on balconies overlooking the scenery, but the great thing about his is that you have privacy, but still with exposure to the outside. and then there are the wonderful jacuzzis in each bedroom. Awesome. The kitchen is well stocked and we loved having the washer/dryer so we didn't have to bring home dirty clothes. On a map, it looked like the cabin was way off the beaten path. It is quite close to the main part of Pigeon Forge and only about 10 to 15 minutes from Gatlinburg. I've heard complaints about some of the lack of accessability to many cabins. Not so here. The drive up Goose Gap, while having a few dips and sharp turns, is a piece of cake to drive. No steep grades. And it is so easy to find. Trust me.....Look NO further. The only bad news is that I had to go home."

  • Beautiful Cabin - superb view and location!

    "Just returned from a Valentine's weekend getaway at this wonderful cabin. As most have stated, the view is spectacular! Mt. LeConte is right in front of you and the cabin's elevation allows you to see miles down the Smoky Mountains while overlooking Gatlinburg. Beautiful. Some have mentioned the road is narrow and challenging but I was expecting much worse. Truly, it's not bad at all and we made several trips up and down the mountain with ease even at night. The cabin has everything. A well stocked kitchen and an open floor plan makes for an ideal entertaining area. Wonderful fireplace and wall of windows allows the view to be enjoyed from any place in the cabin. The deck has two levels and both are huge. The lower level has the hot tub which easily holds 6 and could squeeze 8. The view from the hot tub is incredible and a highlight of the cabin. There are 4 big bedrooms each with a queen or king bed. Only 3 bathrooms. Plenty of games for adults and kids including pool and air hockey. Nice flat screen tv's throughout the cabin. The cabin is perfectly located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. There is a Food City and liquor store 5 minutes from the cabin. You can be on the main strip in Gatlinburg within 10 minutes."

  • Wonderful cabin much nicer then looks in pictures

    "When we arrived and walked in , the house looked much cuter then the pictures. The ceiling was a cathedial ceiling and the walls and floors were a beautiful oak wood. The cabin was very clean and was stocked with towels, dishes and everything needed. We chose it mainly so we could bring our dog, Annie. She felt right at home and settled in right away. She even made friends with a little dog that lived two houses away. We came to the house in the dark, the first night, and did get a little lost finding it (we had an old gps and need to get an updated one), but once we found the house and got to know our way around, we found it to be right in the center of the arts and craft area and were in walking distance to a couple of the craft stores. It was about a 10 min drive to the main shopping area in Gatlinburg and there is a trolly car stop within walking distance of the house. We used the hot top out back and it was very relaxing and seculded. June was very helpful and friendly. She want out of her way to help. I would highly recommended staying here. We would defintly stay 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!
