3) Williamswood Castle
This medieval-style estate is located 10 minutes from downtown Knoxville. Listed on Airbnb, it can accommodate up to 6 guests. The owner touts some of these highlights: 500 feet of riverfront, a massive multi-level deck overlooking the river, and ponds, gardens, and forests. Can you imagine having a castle and its grounds all to yourself for the weekend?
How about a BONUS castle? (because I like to over-deliver)
4) Biltmore Estate
TRAVE TIP: Don't rush your visit to the Biltmore. • • • Each tour ticket comes with a complimentary wine tasting. There are also shops and gardens to browse. You will work up an appetite, so a break for lunch on site will be important. Not to mention, the self guided tour of the house can take at least 2 hours. You won't want to rush through this memorable activity. If you've ever been to the Biltmore, what are your tips?
Located about 4.5 hours from Nashville, the Biltmore Estate provides a luxurious romantic getaway! And while you can't stay in the actual Biltmore house, you can stay on the grounds of the estate in one of their adjacent properties. There is a charming village and winery where COMPLIMENTARY tasting is a MUST! Outdoor activities also abound here: horseback riding, fly-fishing, river floats, and carriage rides are just a few! Stay on the estate for the entire weekend or venture out into the eclectic city of Asheville for some city fun!
