Welcoming guests since 1884, this historic 51-room inn is located in northeast Tennessee near Cherokee National Forest. The historic architecture and traditional decor carry over from the lobby to the guest rooms, all of which come with Bath & Body Works toiletries and Wolfgang Puck coffee, and some of which offer minifridges and microwaves. If you feel like experiencing a seasonal Southern menu, Brumley's Restaurant, named after the family who owned and operated the inn during the early 20th century, serves three meals a day. Although recent visitors found the history of the General Morgan Inn charming, they credit the Southern hospitality of the front desk staff and the modern amenities like free Wi-Fi throughout the property as reasons for a return visit. Some recent patrons do warn that the old building lets noise into rooms, so ask for a room on an upper floor to ensure the quietest night's sleep.3.5-star Hotel ClassFree BreakfastFree ParkingFree WiFi

Note: The hotel is rebuilding from wildfires and only one building, The Woods, is currently open. Just outside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this Gatlinburg, Tennessee gem has a loyal set of lodgers that keep returning for its outstanding mountain views, spacious accommodations, and the friendly staff. But you'll have to appreciate rustic accommodations to be pleased. The Lodge at Buckberry Creek is just that – a lodge – with an "Adirondack-style" decor. Most vacationers choose to take advantage of the area's hiking and fishing opportunities. If you have less-active, more luxurious tastes, consider indulging in the soaking tub (there's one in each room) with the room's Molton Brown bath amenities. You'll find this property around 35 miles southeast of Knoxville and about 220 miles east of Nashville.4.0-star Hotel ClassFree BreakfastFree ParkingFree WiFi
