  • House on a private cove and with amazing views, great deal!

    "Our family truly enjoyed our time at this home. The house is on a private cove and has amazing views. The house is well equipped, we was ready to have a good time once we showed up. If you are looking for lake activities or just want to relax this house is it. Easy drive for us to spend a day at Dollywood, Dolly Splash Country and Gatlinburg. The dock was perfect for us to bring our jet skies and for fishing. The 9 days flew by because we enjoyed ourselves so much. Thank you for sharing your home with us."

  • Spring Break 2015 with the family!

    "We had a great trip to Pigeon Forge and the location of the Cubs Den cabin was a large reason why! The cabin was clean, comfortable, and spacious. We were just minutes away from the Parkway in Pigeon Forge and visited attractions during the day and could come back to the cabin several times a day for a quick break or to grab a meal/snack. For parent with younger kids the park on Wears Valley Road is only a 2-3 minute drive and our 4 and 6 year old loved it. Also the Alpine Coaster comes highly recommended as well. We visited that attraction on multiple days. Silvie responded to us the day of our arrival and let us know the cabin was clean and ready for early check in. This trip was one of the best vacations our family has ever had. The kids are already asking when we can go back."

  • perfect getaway

    "Spent almost a week in this cozy, relaxed and very quiet home. First the bedding was exceptional. Down pillows and good solid mattresses. The 2 person lounge chair by the fire demanded cuddled naps. The kitchen was beautifully equipped with all sorts of gadgets along with granite counter tops, a sizeable frig and breakfast bar. A convenient laundry with new LG appliances were easy to use. Bathrooms were large and clean. Looks like a new stairway to the lake along with a huge deck next to the firepit will be a welcome addition for the less mobile."

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!
