Very helpful hosts

Host provided very helpful information for touring the Smoky Mountains. Quiet parking area. Then he went over and above allowing us to stay past our departure time by several hours while our truck was being repaired. Highly recommended.

Belle Visite

Merci L for your wonderful hospitality. We enjoyed a quiet night on your paved pad overlooking the green space. Sofi enjoyed her walk to the dog park on your recommendation and we all enjoyed our hike around the lake. We hope to see you again when we return this way!

Relaxing space in adorable town

Very relaxing location. Easy space to park, needed just a tad of one tire leveled and Larry has that on the ready to be used. Yummy water access with my 10ft. hose. Though he does have a hose available.
Loved the bike trail access for relaxing riding and easy to get to food, beautiful library, dog park.
Friendly hosts that I imagine would welcome chatting if you desire that- or have the time. We were working 9-6 during the day so we didn't have the time.
No fence for dog, if you have one, to be contained but easy to keep on long lead.
Thank you for the stay!

Big thank to super host

We had enjoying and relaxing stay with Traveler host. Lovely family and place. Mr. Larry show us things to do in the area very detail. He seem to thing of everything that made our stay enjoyable 🥰. There is a nice park right behind the backyard for sport and walk. The little picnic river in the smoky mountain that Mr. Larry show us is a peaceful place to cool off in a hot day. Thanks again Traveler family !

Short be sweet

Just passing through Knoxville with a short visit in the city. Very nice and restful stay at Traveller. Helpful and welcoming host’s with lots of information on the area and things to do. Quite street near greenway to walk and decompress after the drive. Water and electricity made available. Will be a place to stay again if we’re in the area.

Had a peaceful stay with a nice overlook of a local park and access to a walking trail. The host was

Super Host!

Wonderful, warm, and knowledgeable about the area. We were traveling from the frozen north and arrived, got level, and unwinterized. Thank you for use of your driveway with a view! Highly recommend. Birdies chirping made for a fun morning coffee before hitting the road.
