  • Family Fun Trip

    "We traveled with my husband and 4 year old daughter along with my college best friend and her husband for 5 day stay in the Smoky Mountains. From the pictures, I though the second bedroom was actually "in the loft" but was excited to find that it was a separate bedroom upstairs. The loft did have a futon, gaming systems, a billiards table and standard board games for daddy and daughter to play their first game of battleship together. We did minimal cooking in the cabin but it was well stocked if that's the way you travel. I was concerned from reading other cabin reviews about how steep driveways can be. It was somewhat elevated, but never was an issue for us and I drive a Lexus ES350 sedan. We just backed in and it worked perfectly. We parked that car and my friend's supercab Trunda with no issue. The home was clean and well maintained and the decor was cute without being over the top "hokie" for a mountain cabin. We were supper impressed. There was ample seating inside and out and the hot tub accommodated all four adults easily and comfortably. There was plenty of room for two families to feel they had their own privacy. The linens provided were ample for our needs and the place was so CLEAN. The location is perfect to attend dinners and shows in the Pigeon Forge area and the drive to Rainbow Falls Hike in the National Park was only about 15 minutes away. Alpine Village is literally across from two great attractions we visited, Titanic and The Hatfield McCoy Dinner Show. The Apple Barn is about 5 minutes away, the Comedy Barn probably a little less. Trips to downtown Gatlinburg were only about 10 minutes. The pride of ownership shows. My best friend and her husband slept in the master suite and will likely be buying a bed just like the one they slept on when they get home. The way the cabin is positioned, even though you are in a resort, you still have plenty of privacy on the back deck. The owners were responsive in booking and responded to the unnecessary check out email I sent within a few hours. This is not a trip we make regularly, but when we do, we will stay here again. Thank you for sharing your home. My 4 year old now calls it her "Mountain Home". She can be a little possessive. She has a "Beach Home" too, but this was definitely a place that felt like home away from home."

  • Wonderful Stay!!!

    "My husband and our two children just got back from our stay at the Summit. We found this condo to be exactly what we expected from the pictures. It was updated and super clean!! The kids loved the pools and having their own separate beds. The complex was very well maintained with a peaceful and homey feel. Great for taking an morning or evening stroll around. The views were amazing!!! We even saw a mama bear and three cubs from the balcony one night. We will definitely visit 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!
