Go to the Smoky Mts and rent a cabin in the woods for the weekend. This time of year is super and you can't beat the weather. Great views, nice and quiet. All the privacy you could ask for. Your pocketbook will be happy too. It isn't that expensive. There are some outstanding cabins with fireplaces that you can rent really cheap. Take a bunch of candles, snuggle blankets, booze if you want. Take a few steaks to cook out. You'll have a blast.

my hubby and i go to burkesville.there is a motel ther that is soo peaceful up on the mountain side.we get a room with a jacuzzi tub with a window over lookin the town...it's not fancy but fairly affordable, great to ride there on a motorcycle so you feel like you r part of nature...but a car trip is cool too...we go to town and eat at the mom and pop restaraunts to grab a bite to eat...then to a store for munchies to take back to the room for later...the folks we've met down there r really good people...we had lots of easy laid back fun ....good luck..

Hey, thanks for the ideas....never even thought of Burkesville. Sounds like some rest, relaxation, and romance might be in the air this weekend.

the food at the lodge sucks though...we went last weekend to find the cuisine was horrible....not trying to bash the place...i love the scenery...and sometimes you'll get to see some wild life...but don't expect a good meal.....

I like Lost Lodge. It is located in Somerset, so it can't really be considered a get away. But it is located in a wooden area and has access to a private dock on the lake. It is a very quiet place and the owners are very nice.

Didn't know there was such a place in Bronston, I will check into that. Next weekend is our anniversary and I would like something a little different!

Drive down past Monticello, South to Pickett State Park on the Tennessee state line. Park at the Double Arches trailhead. You will hike two miles into the Big South Fork National Park. There you will find Charit Creek Lodge. You can rent either rooms or a cabin. They serve breakfast and dinner in the lodge dining room and they pack you a lunch for hiking. You can hike to Slave Falls, Double Arches, Island Crossing and other places. Double Arches is the largest rock arch formation east of Utah; it is so big one side has a whole cave in it. You will cross swinging bridges and see all kinds of wildlife. The lodge has hot showers but kerosene lamps in the rooms and cabins, so it's semi-rustic.

Get on the internet and you can see pictures. Go to either Charit Creek Lodge or OutpostUSA.org THEN Charit Creek.

You must make reservations ahead, as they must plan for an exact number of guests.

I believe it's called Cumberland Resort...it's a cabin resort hidden in the hills past burnside...very beautiful with most cabins having lake view....not very expensive either. All are have hot tubs which are clean.

Also, my hubby surprised me with a weekend get-a-way at Barron River State Resort Park close to Mammouth Cave...the cave system is also really fun to go to and near by the state park.

Have fun!!!

Thanks for all the suggestions. Heard of places never knew about. Went to Smokies, had a wonderful weekend and even got in a little Christmas shopping while there. But mainly just stayed in the cabin enjoying each others company and the HOT TUB!
