  • Great cabin great location

    "We loved this cabin it was great for our family of four. It was very clean when we arrived. The owners were great at communicating and easy to work with. The kids loved the air hockey table and playstation in the loft. It was only a short drive to Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The cabin has a nice private feeling to it. We would definitely stay at Bear Crossing again."

  • Lovely Family Time Stay at The Lighthouse

    "Very, very nicely appointed lake cottage. We are all in the restaurant business, and we had a great time cooking in the lovely kitchen. We also enjoyed the books, the DVD's, Netflix, but we spent most of our time out on the wonderful, large deck with it's view of this gorgeous lake. Also spent a lot of time out on the dock, swimming, sunning and riding our jet skis. The owners even left a canoe and a couple of floats for us to use during our visit. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Our family would highly recommend a stay at The Lighthouse! And we look forward to returning as soon as possible."

  • A+ Rating

    "We had a seven night stay at a different condo at Mountain View. We were having such a great time that we decided to stay an additional night. The condo we were in was not available, so we stayed the last night in this condo. I cannot say enough about how great the owner is to work with. It was a very last minute rental and he responded to every one of my emails very promptly. Also, the rental process was so quick and easy. Verlon had us in the condo in a few minutes. The condo is very clean and well maintained and has a great view from the balcony. It is well supplied with paper products and everything you will need. The condo location is great and close to many restaurants and attractions. I definitely recommend staying at this condo. Great owners, great condo, great view, great location!"

  • Breathtaking! Simply Remarkable!!

    "My fiancé and I decided on this cabin after looking at hundreds of postings for our wedding. We wanted a large cabin that would fit the amount of people we invited and a venue for the event that was straight out of a magazine. This location has it all!!! Breathtaking views, remarkable accommodations, top notch living amities, and enough rooms to sleep two joining families without everyone falling over each other ;-) The owners are totally awesome! They did such a wonderful job answering all my questions and meeting my wedding needs, I swear they are angels! Our families really enjoyed the full surrounding balconies on the cabin. No matter where you sat in one of the many rocking chairs, the views are just phenomenal. We also had 6 kids on the trip that really enjoyed themselves! The owners provide tons of games and with all the space inside and outside lawn space, they played hide and seek for hours  The wedding turn out wonderfully and the pergola and background scenery of the mountains was just priceless. We will definitely be 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!
