  • Perfect honeymoon spot!

    "My husband and I decided to go here for our honeymoon because we wanted a place to just get away and relax, but still be close to restaurants/attractions. That is exactly what we got here! We felt right at home in this cabin and would recommend it to anyone wanting to come to this area!"

  • So relaxing.....

    "Thank you so much! My husband & I had the best time, nice front yard for our 2 Golden Rtvs. to wander around in. The cabin was really clean & well stocked. This was the 2nd time we stayed at Inspiration Point and would definitely go there again."

  • Quality!

    "What a great condo - so spacious, extra clean, 2 Master Suites, balcony overlooking pool, and easy walking to Parkway attractions. We were very pleased with this unit and will definitely be back on our next visit to Gatlinburg. Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us."

  • Lovely sceened in porch, and close to the water!

    "We rented this place for a relaxing July 4th getaway. We had six adults and one toddler. The screened in porch really made this house for us - we probably spent 90% of our time out there. The open kitchen/living/dining was equally as enjoyable - we grilled every night and really used that kitchen well (we love to cook on vacation). The bedrooms were as described. I'd say that if we had had another adult couple with us, it would have felt a bit crowded. With three couples, we each had our own room and the toddler got his own room in the basement. That way, each couple had their own bathroom to themselves, which was pretty nice. The walk down to the water really is a very short distance (maybe 3 minutes max) but the drive is pretty steep so it made more sense for us to just drive our car down there (not to mention all the stuff we lugged down to the water). The little cove is pretty simple so if you're looking for a fancy dock/swimming place, this may not be for you. But it was a great little slope into the water (perfect for our toddler to walk down and stick his feet in the water). My ONLY complaint about this place is there is NO cell phone reception if you have AT&T and only spotty at best reception if you have Verizon. There is a home phone but it does not allow for any dialing out (?) and you have to use a calling card. This was frustrating because we bought a calling card and of course we couldn't figure out how to use it...so we were without any sort of phone for the entire week, unless we drove into town. But the owner did tell me all of this upfront so it wasn't a surprise. Overall, this place was great and we wouldn't hesistate coming back!"

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!
