Traveler's Nest is located in Blount County on The Dragon - a stretch of highway that attracts visitors from all over the world with breath-taking scenery and for the challenge of driving the extreme curves. It is less than 20 minutes from McGhee Tyson Airport, 30 minutes from The University of Tennessee and less than an hour from The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There are many local restaurants and shops to explore and a ton of outdoor activities to enjoy.
“We had a great time here though it was one night! We weren’t expecting the binder with all the hiking spots and dining recommendations, maps and more! Considering we wanted to go hiking the day we arrived, it was super helpful and helped us pick a spot to go quickly!! Cillia provided baked goods for all three of us! (3 blueberry muffins which are my fave!) there were small snacks in the TV stand, perfect to grab a few nature valley bars put in our bag when we went hiking! The bathroom is stocked with everything you might need if you forgot something! (Toothbrush, toothpaste, bandaids, contact holders and solution, etc.) There are notes posted inside and outside to answer any questions you might have about the room. Where the towels are stored, where to put the used towels when you leave, what to do with the trash, and a note saying you are allowed to use any games they have in the garage and enjoy the backyard! We only stayed 1 night, but we sure wanted to break out the cornhole set! Overall, 10/10 from how clean it was when we arrived, to the seamless stay and checkout! If we come back to the area, we will for sure be coming back to the Traveler’s Nest!”

“Amazing! Sand volleyball, horseshoes, a clean and beautiful pool with a great view of nature and horses to boot! This place is charming! Love the home decor and beautiful location! There are so many amenities that we didn't even have time to use...like watching TV outside by the pool and the firepit. We loved antiquing nearby and enjoyed white water rafting nearby as well! My tire got a flat in the driveway, and Barry helped me put on a spare. Barry is a great host, kind and respectful, who makes himself available if needed. We felt super safe here and my four children LOVED this place!”
My house is a log cabin style home, with rustic and cottage décor. It is in the foothills of East TN, in a very peaceful neighborhood. It is located on a hill and has a beautiful view. Please let me know how many people will be in your group.
“Quiet surroundings, very peaceful with the amazing view. Would definitely recommend if you would like to be in the middle of Vonore, Loudon, or Blount County”
