Things to do during "cabin time" in Ten Mile
Watts Bar Lake cabin rentals are in Ten Mile, TN - a picturesque, lakeside community. In fact, the lake is populated with many summer cottages along its quiet shores. Surrounding the lake is a marina, a strip of small shops and locally owned restaurants, several historic churches and a waterfront resort.
Visitors to the area can enjoy a picturesque view of the Appalachian Mountains front the front porch of a waterside cabin rental, and will have access to the range’s thousands of miles’ worth of rugged hiking trails. Those who like to explore can do so through the many outdoor activities offered in and around Ten Mile, including skiing, whitewater rafting and spelunking.
Speak with local vacation home property owners for insight into peak times to visit the region and enjoy the varied indigenous wild flowers of spring. Tourists flock to eastern Tennessee in April and the following months for panoramas full of wild azalea, rhododendron and laurels. In autumn, the foliage is no less vibrant, and nature lovers can be found taking a winding drive through the mountain passes to admire the brilliant leaves.
The fishermen in the family will appreciate the bounty of Ten Mile Creek, which runs straight through the unincorporated town. Those found testing its waters have been rewarded with white and largemouth bass, trout, crappie and sauger. From a rented lodge on Watts Bar Lake, the adventurous angler is also only a short drive away from the offerings of the Tennessee, Clinch and Emory Rivers.
If you’re vacationing with a history buff, Ten Mile»s vacation cottages are a mere 20 minutes away from a partial recreation of Fort Southwest Point, rebuilt on the original site. A visitor’s center and museum near the Fort’s grounds display locally excavated archeological artifacts. Or, contact a local cabin rental owner for information about Living History Days performed by the Fort’s staff.
