The Big South Fork offers a smorgasbord of accommodations. There are all types to choose from. If you like luxury and lots of amenities, there are wonderful bed and breakfasts like Grey Gables Bed & Breakfast Inn located in historic Rugby, TN. Rugby is an English settlement founded by Thomas Hughes who wanted to create a Utopian village back in the late 1870’s. Old world charm awaits you at Loree Guest Ranch - a spacious ranch surrounded by 120 acres of pastures with beautiful rolling hills, and located adjacent to the BSFNRRA. Innkeeper, Faye, and her ranch hand son, Tommy, will spoil you with a fantastic home cooked breakfast or all your meals, arrange a horseback ride or lesson, suggest some nearby hikes, and even help you plan a family reunion, wedding, girls’ getaway, or a horse clinic. This is the only bed and breakfast ranch that offers all these amenities, plus an in-ground pool for their guests. Cabins dot the Big South Fork on either side of the river, and these wonderful chalets will accommodate any taste. Some of the newest cabins are the The Cabins of Elk Run. They offer breathtaking views from the side of the mountain where you can really enjoy the crisp clean air from the European/Austrian style balconies. These chalets sit on one of the Brimstone Recreation trails for those OHV enthusiasts. Families come from all over the country (and even Canada) to bring their off road vehicles and enjoy this perfect getaway. Cheryl and husband, Dennis moved here from the Caribbean a few years ago with a dream to enjoy retirement and to create a family friendly, efficient cabin that would allow their guests to enjoy God’s country. The cabins are beautiful with functionality in mind for their outdoor recreation activities. Longhorn Ranch is a beautiful, modern, fully equipped cabin with a hot tub located on the eastern side of the river. It offers horse stalls for your horses and a wonderfully decorated cabin for you. This high end cabin is very popular with folks looking to enjoy the fine cabin living when they bring their horse to ride for the weekend. It is conveniently located next to the Angel Falls trailhead which leads in to the expansive Big South Fork trail system. Laurel Fork Rustic Retreat offers twelve beautiful log cabins/chalets that are rented throughout the year. Read more about them below or on page 12. For those who are looking for a motel/hotel setting, the Jordan Motel is conveniently located on Hwy. 127, in the heart of the Big South Fork Country. They offer clean, modern motel rooms complete with WI-FI and phones in each room. They have an in-ground swimming pool that is open seasonally. Owners, Joyce and Vickie will be happy to look after you during your stay in the Big South Fork. On the other side of the river, Grand Vista Hotel offers a cooked breakfast, swimming pool, and clean, modern rooms to accommodate any size group. They are conveniently located near the Big South Fork and popular Brimstone. If you like to camp, there are plenty of camping facilities available with access to the park, room for your horses with full hookups, amenities and activities throughout the year. Take a look at the campground information on page 6 to help you choose the destination that is right for you. Come spend a weekend, week, or plan your special gathering in the Big South Fork today!

For a real getaway, Laurel Fork Rustic Retreat offers twelve spacious, luxurious, comfortable vacation homes/cabins in a gated community bordering the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area (BSFNRRA). Getting away to spend quality time with family and friends in the great outdoors is what a lot of folks dream about. But it doesn’t have to be a dream. Within a short drive of Knoxville, Nashville, Chattanooga, and other major cities, your family and friends can rent one of these grand chalets which are located just minutes from hiking and horseback trails. Recently, we and two of our sons’ friends - Jacob and Bryce spent the weekend at “Hanging it Up”, one of the luxurious chalets in the Laurel Fork Rustic Retreat community. Each cabin is spacious and surrounded by three to five acres of woodland, some with magnificent overlooks. “Hanging it Up” is a fantastic cabin with a lot of character. It has a beautiful granite island in the wonderfully stocked kitchen ideal for entertaining which I (Annie) really enjoyed. The boys had a wonderful time playing outside on the swings. We built a campfire in the fire pit out back and made s’mores one night. We all soaked in the hot tub and gazed at the canopy of stars overhead. The boys also delighted in the walks down the country road to the basketball hoop where they played basketball for hours, including some serious “around the world”. The portable corn hole game that Uncle Brendan and Tante Inge got them for their birthday this year was perfect for out front of “Hanging it Up”. The great country lanes are quite suitable for hiking, walking, and even bike riding. One can ride or walk about 2.5 miles from a cabin to scenic Hwy. 294 without worries about traffic or wild dogs. The route is lined with pastures, cows, horses, and rolling hills. What heaven! I had the opportunity to enjoy a little down time in the screened-in porch where I read a good book and watched in wonder at the abundant bird feeders where birds and squirrels were dining. The cabin’s high ceilings and stunning windows opened up to the trees, wildlife, and the beautiful blue sky. Each room was decorated to perfection. The master bedroom had a blue bird theme with a comfortable built in window settee to curl up and read or sleep. The upstairs loft offered lots of enjoyment for the boys, as they played foosball, watched TV and a movie, and just enjoyed the cabin lifestyle. The cabin has tile and hardwood floors throughout with delightful beds dressed in high thread count linens. You can enjoy satellite TV throughout the cabin. I was even able to check my email, as “Hanging it Up” has wireless internet. This was true luxury and a totally relaxing weekend. Our hosts, Inez and Jack Troxell retired from nursing and the park service with a vision to turn their family land into their dream retirement home and to develop this amazing piece of property into a great place for others to enjoy as well. They offer twelve gorgeous cabins through their rental program that folks have built as their dream homes over the last ten years. These vacation homes/cabins rival any cabin or chalet in Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains. As an added bonus there is no congestion here, no smog, and the rentals are very affordable. Each cabin has its own personality and run anywhere from $125.00 to $219.00 per night with cabin capacity ranging from 6-12 people - all dependent upon the number of bedrooms and amenities. Many of the cabins have multiple night discounts, highlighted on the easy to navigate website - www.laurelfork.com. There is a lot to do at Laurel Fork Rustic Retreat and the great outdoors of the BSFNRRA including great hikes, such as the Yellow Cliff Trailhead for riders and hikers which connects to some of the other great Big South Fork trails. Even if you don’t hike or trail ride, what a great way to relax, immerse in God’s beauty around you, soak in the hot tub, and enjoy the simple lifestyle with family and friends. Come for a weekend retreat, a special occasion, or book a week in the Big South Fork and let the Troxell family spoil you with their wonderful southern hospitality. Bring a group of friends to help share in the experience. You’ll be glad you did. For reservations, call 423-286-5135 or log onto: www.laurelfork.com.

Maple Hill RV Campground and Cabins is the newest full service campground in the region. Mark and Audrey Asprogiannis fell in love with the area and moved their children, Sarah and James, from North Carolina for a better quality of life. They bought Maple Hill Campground that year with a vision of turning it into a premier campground with 4 new cabins for rent (1 handicap accessible). It is conveniently located between Big South Fork and Dale Hollow Lake. The campground has 9 pull-through sites for RV’s (25’ x 65’) with full hook-ups, trailer hook-ups, 50/30/20 amp electric, 22 level sites, free WI-FI, and they can arrange horse or fishing guide services, tour information, and can help you plan your day out in the region.
