Looking for a place to finish writing that novel? Or maybe just somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle of Nashville or Memphis? The Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee are full of these escapes, providing a space for honeymoons, family vacations and last-minute R&R trips. From small one-bedroom properties to sprawling estates, here are some of our favorite Tennessee cabins to get away from it all.

Three stories of rustic charm in the wooded Hemlock Hills community provide a place for rest and relaxation while being just 15 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. The four bedrooms sleep up to 18 people, making this cabin great for a crowd. Watch a movie in the theater room, hang out on one of the two large decks or head to the game room for a round of pool. The lower deck has a hot tub, which is great for chilly nights and listening to bird songs. Toast to time away around the fireplace, and whip up a steak or decadent meal using the charcoal grill and full kitchen.

    If you’ve spent the day at Dollywood, Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction or Splash Country – which are all a short drive away – this cabin will be beckoning you home to unwind and relax. Sink into the large hot tub on the upper deck that overlooks the dense woods behind the house, or softly sway in one of the rocking chairs on the back porch while listening to the rolling creek. A fully equipped kitchen and a charcoal grill mean you don’t have to leave the house for a meal, but options abound in nearby Pigeon Forge if you want to go out. Grab a seat by the fireplace to curl up with a journal, or head upstairs to the loft to play some pool, cards or board games. Here, you’re near it all, yet far enough away for an escape.
