  • North Shore Fun

    "My sisters-in-law and I had a wonderful, relaxing time in the North Shore neighborhood of Chattanooga. The Tucker Street Apartment was the perfect spot for us! We enjoyed being on the top floor, as we could see the lights of downtown reflecting on the Tennessee River. We even witnessed a beautiful fireworks display from the deck! The kitchen has everything one might need for preparing simple meals. The beds were comfortable, and the apartment was clean. Its proximity to the shops and restaurants allowed us to walk everywhere. We enjoyed sushi at Sushi Nabe, a dynamite vegan meal at Cashew, and a perfect cup of coffee at a beautiful coffee shop on the corner. I also appreciated the opportunity to run along the river and even across the pedestrian bridge to the more bustling downtown. Staying at the Tucker apartment was much more fun and affordable than any inn or hotel. The owners were extremely kind and prompt in their interactions with us."

  • Family reunion

    "We had a group of 17 family members from age 2 to 85 and the house was fantastic. There was plenty of room in the common areas to enjoy each other without being crowded. The kitchen was well equipped and could comfortably hold multiple cooks. The table and the view from it were fantastic. We enjoyed seeing wild turkeys and a black bear from the deck. The bedrooms and baths were nice. The upstairs baths were a little tight for the taller family members and the upstairs water pressure was a little low. We were close enough to town it was quick and easy to take advantage of all the area has to offer. We would highly recommend the cabin."

  • Everything was perfect!

    "My husband and I stayed for a week at this charming stone cottage. It was pristinely clean. Smelled great, not a single bug to be found. This is not a modern upscale rental, it is exactly as it claims to be. A quaint country cottage. The decor was perfect for the locale, as these Appalachian foothills are deeply steeped with history. The old-time pictures and nick-nacks truly set off the appeal. You really felt like you've gone back in time and you could feel the "carpe diem" eminate from the eyes in the actual turn-of-the-century photographs. The landscape was nicely done with a lovely ENGLISH ivy climbing about the stone walls. Behind the cottage is hundreds of acres of forested hills, no neighbors in site. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly. The hosts were spot-on in their balance of giving information, rules and expectations while keeping you feeling very welcome, confusion-free, in need of nothing and completely private. They really take care of you! The cost vs value on this property is a no-brainer. Location is prime for privacy, romance and "getting away from it all". I highly recommend this place for a mountain get-away. As far as the previous somewhat negative review, just remember, there's one in every crowd!"

  • Good for the money

    "Was a nice stay for the money. The hot tub really wasn't useable (smelled bad) water was clear. The upstairs jacuzzi couldn't really be used d/t lack of hot water. Other wise, plenty of room for our family of 6. Plenty of TV's. The kids enjoyed the Xbox and computer. Location was great since gatlinburg and ober mountain were minutes away."

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!
