  • Everything and more than I could have asked for.

    "My son choose Labor Day weekend to get married in the Smoky Mountains. I did not think that I would ever find a place that would fit all of our needs but Bear Creek cabin was the absolute perfect fit. Since we live in Kentucky and I had family coming in from New York, Pennsylvania and Florida I needed a cabin that would accommodate all of us and be able to hold a wedding. My daughter-in-law also had the vision of wanting a back-yard wedding which I thought would be unheard of in the Smoky Mountains. Not only is Bear Creek the perfect place to be able to accommodate a large number of people and is lovely inside and out but it also had a very large yard with plenty of parking for the wedding. The best part of renting Bear Creek cabin was the owners; Al and Jerrye, from the first moment I contacted them about the cabin they were kind, gracious and very accommodating. There was never the cold, callous and money hungry feeling you get from renting from a management company. Any question or problem was never too small and to get a response about a question on a holiday weekend in no time short was very reassuring to a mother stressed out from putting on a wedding. Needless to say the event and our time at the cabin was wonderful and I am certain that if we need a family cabin Bear Creek will be the first phone call I make."

  • Lake House

    "We had a great week at the Lake House. The pictures and the descriptions described this home to a tee!! Our family ranged in age from 3 months to 75. The common areas of the home allowed for every family to have a space of their own. The cove was great for swimming and close to all the marinas. As with most homes on the lake...the steep steps make it a challenge for the older family members and the curved walk way is challenging. A railing to hold onto would help. The resort offers a nice pool and golf course that make the home a great place to stay We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this home for your stay at Deerfield Resorts!!"

  • Heaven's View: All the conveniences of home with a view!

    "Heaven's View truly has a view of heaven. My brothers and I reserved the cabin to celebrate our Mother's 90th birthday. The cabin is very pretty. It is clean and comfortable and well maintained. The main deck is quite roomy and has an unobstructed view of beautiful mountains and sky. At night we could see millions of stars and a very bright half moon. The beds are comfortable and the sheets are quite soft. It is well equipped. The cabin also has a nice hot tub and a pool table. The cabin is perfectly located. It is very convenient to all the excitement in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and just a hop-skip to Cades Cove. In addition, a very well stocked grocery store with a helpful staff is about five minutes away. We had a great time enjoying Mother's birthday, each others' company and the scenery. The cabin is so comfortable that we hardly left it, but we did manage to drive to Cades Cove to see a few deer and a yearling bear. Donn and Margaret are very easy to work with and respond quickly to questions or problems. What a wonderful place to enjoy the beautiful Smoky Mountains."

  • Wonderful get-away spot

    "We really enjoy the secluded location of the Lady Slipper cabin. It is close to the National Park, but not right on the highway. Location makes it easy to drive into the park, or over into Gatlinburg. There are several restaurants, groceries, and gas stations nearby, as well. As always, this is one of the cleanest, most well-maintained cabins we've stayed in. It's a pleasure to return to it as often as possible."

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!
