Where to Go? 3 children for a Weekend in the Mountains or Somewhere Unique

Jump to last reply

We would like to take our three grandchildren for a 2-3 day weekend trip in mid-October, possibly to the Smoky Mountains, but we are open to location as long as it's 4 hours or less drive from Nashville. Ages are 9 and 6 (twins). Would prefer to stay out of Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg. We have stayed at the Dancing Bear Lodge in Townsend and loved it, but if we get a cabin for this trip would prefer something with a "big" view of the mountains. Checked out Senenbe Inn and Brasstown Valley in GA and they look perfect, but too far away for this trip. Any suggestions for something unique in an area where we can enjoy the fall color, do a little sightseeing, and have room for the kids to play? Doesn't necessarily have to be the mountains.
