Looking for a unique twist on your next Tennessee getaway? The Volunteer State hosts a treasure trove of unconventional lodgings that promise to make your trip unforgettable. From luxury treehouses to glamping domes, here’s a roundup of ten spots to bunk down in style, each offering its own distinct flavor of Tennessee charm.

In Smithville, take the chance to connect with nature without sacrificing creature comforts at Your Glamping Adventure. Only a bit over an hour from Nashville, this family farm boasts geodesic domes complete with hot tubs and lakeside views. Among the treetops in Chattanooga, the Treetop Hideaways at Ruby Falls offer treehouses with modern amenities, all nestled at the base of Lookout Mountain – just a stone’s throw away from urban exploration and natural wonders.

For a communal vibe, The Goat Pen Hostel in Tracy City stands out with its colorful mural and proximity to local eats, such as Hank’s Corner Grille. Further into Nashville’s countryside, Pomelo Grove Glamping Retreat invites guests to a chill eco-farm-stay in chic campers that endeavor to sustainably please. Those attending concerts at The Caverns in Pelham can extend their musical journey overnight by staying in the site’s Yurt Village, which promises all the comfort one would expect from a luxury hotel room, albeit with the spirit of a traditional Mongolian dwelling. According to a release from the Tennessee Department of Tourism Development, the “Body & Soul Festival” in September is set to be a new attraction the caverns will host this year.

Then there’s the whimsical Ancient Lore Village in Knoxville, transporting guests straight into a storybook with themed accommodations and archaic games. If seeking thrills, the Thomas House Hotel in Red Boiling Springs delivers with hair-raising ghost hunts. And for an exhaustive list of high-end leisure, Blackberry Farm & Farmhouse Spa in Walland ticks every box from fly fishing to horseback riding, capped with a spa day to boot.

Rounding out the list are The Silos at Promise Manor in Lynchburg, where grain silos have been reimagined as cozy lodgings overlooking a rural slice of Tennessee, and Stillwaters Farm in Henderson offering both a cottage and a renovated Airstream to accommodate those looking to embrace the agrarian life while sipping locally produced wine. These destinations in Tennessee illustrate the state’s knack for innovatively utilizing its rich resources and vibrant culture to create extraordinary experiences for travelers seeking more than just a place to sleep.
