Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee
Finally, a quiet log cabin in the middle of nowhere to match your flannel shirt and full beard. You’ll instantly want to call this rustic retreat of Creekwalk Inn in Cosby “home,” especially since the Great Smoky Mountains—America’s most visited park, according to NationalParks.org—are only a 10-minute car ride away. When you’re ready to leave your cozy, country-style room, an amazing playground of rolling green hills is right outside your door. With 800 miles of hiking trails spanning across 522,427 acres at your disposal, you’ll never get bored. You could also bike, horseback ride, heck, chop some wood and build a fire should you be so inclined. Or just sit on an outdoor rocking chair with bourbon on the rocks and contemplate your new (albeit temporary) life in the wild.
