With music embedded deep in its soul, Tennessee has created its own brand of ‘cool’. The state’s three dramatically different regions boast some of the greatest outdoors in the United States. City slickers will love the sprawling metropolises of Memphis and Nashville. Nature lovers, on the other hand, have many treasures for getting close to nature. There’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park, for one. What’s more, there are also cosy cities such as Knoxville and Chattanooga that are nestled right up against some of the lushest outdoors in the state. You’ll love the cabin vacation rentals in Tennessee too, the coolest of which range from luxury cabins to quaint cottages alongside lakes. Whether you’re here for an outdoorsy vacation or a laid-back hideaway, Tennessee offers a gamut of options. Here’s a rundown of the best Airbnb cabins in Tennessee, USA.
This 3-storey cabin, near the historic hamlet of Leipers Fork, has 5 bedrooms with plush beds and can accommodate up to 16 people. It has everything you need to make your vacation memorable. If you’re an outdoorsy type, there are several gorgeous hiking trails right at your doorstep.
To spend even more time outside, there’s a private pool and a hot tub on the patio, which makes for a great spot to unwind. In the evening, you can roast s'mores and hot dogs around the fire pit. If you’d rather stay inside, there’s a home theatre and a game room to keep you busy.
