This Converted WWII Train Car is easily one of my favorite places to go glamping in Tennessee purely for how unique it is.
I mean, how many people can say they’ve slept in a converted WWII train car?
The interior has been beautifully renovated to the highest standard – so much so that it’s pretty much an interior decorator’s dream!
It benefits from a queen-size bed, a living area with a TV, a full kitchen, a bathroom with a soaking tub, a dining area, and a study.
Basically everything you could possibly ever want and more!
And to top it all off, the outdoor space is just as special.
What guests say: “This place was AMAZING! Dean had a bottle of Prosecco chilling in the fridge for us along with some chocolate. On top of that, he had postcards that we could send to loved ones back home. The place is well worth the 5 stars without all of the extra hospitality, but those little things are what pushed it over the edge.”

All these elements come together to create a haven for you and your loved one away from the world!

The story continues outside with a spacious porch with outdoor furniture, and swing seats below, from which you can soak up the valley views.

Any treehouse with a rope bridge leading up to it is a good treehouse in my books, and that’s why I can’t get enough of Treehouse Mountain Retreat Treehouses.
There are four amazing treehouses to choose from here: Rubicon, The Stamish Castle, La Paz, and The Dreamweaver.
They are all so amazing that I don’t think I could ever pick a favorite but don’t worry because they all benefit from amazing private porches with breathtaking views of the mountains.
And that’s all you could ever need, right?
What guests say: “We have stayed here three times. The treehouses are absolute magic for our 5-year-old and 8-year-old. There are a lot of times on vacations when you see pictures of the destination and think there is no way it can look that good. If anything, the pictures of treehouse mountain don’t do it justice.”

Both enjoy wonderful woodland surroundings and shared usage of their bathhouse which benefits from a clawfoot tub.
In the colder months, you can light a fire under the bath and have yourself a ‘hillbilly hot tub’. Pretty unique, huh?
Top tip: ask for breakfast in advance, and you’ll get to enjoy eggs, milk, butter, and homemade bread. Delicious!
What guests say: “We loved the retro linen and little details like the mini-library of vintage nature books – in fact, we couldn’t fault the whole experience – from the hillbilly hot tub (a must!) to cooking our dinner over an open fire.
