River Oak Retreat

5 BR
3 Baths
Sleeps 12


If you didn't know better, you would think this property was located in the middle of the Great Smoky Mountains, and you wouldn't be too far off. While it retains that mountain retreat atmosphere with tons of privacy, you are located only 5 miles from Downtown Knoxville in the foothills of the same Mountain Range. In one square mile of downtown, Knoxville has over 100 restaurants and 25 breweries from which to choose, more than any other city in America. In addition to all of the shopping opportunities at family-owned specialty stores, live shows at two historic theatres, ice skating in Market Square, train rides on the Three Rivers Rambler, or a trip to the Urban Wilderness, Knoxville Zoo, or many local Civil War Forts, you will have a full week of activities within just a few miles of this property. Lest we forget the University of Tennessee, which is only 2.5 miles away straight down Alcoa Highway with sporting events, concerts, cultural activities, graduations, and much more.

At the turn of the 20th Century before most of the Frontier trails had been blazed West, Knoxville was on a growth pace similar to Atlanta and Chicago because of it's location on the Tennessee River and extensive railroads to transport timber, sand, rock, and other vital materials that helped build America. Located in the heart of Appalachia, Knoxville soon became the HUB and gathering place for Riverboat Captains, Railroad Engineers, Civil War Generals, Mob Bosses, famous athletes, actors, and musicians. Many of the original buildings and structures still remain, along with all of the stories and history. From historic taverns, pubs, museums, theatres, studios, and stadiums downtown, to battlefields, farms, and homes in the suburbs, you will not have to go far to find a great story of Knoxville's past or it's future.

We had a wonderful stay in Knoxville! The house and pool were super clean. Also perfect location to be a little out of the city but also close to things. We forgot a speaker and Rock came by with one which was so sweet! So thankful for the wonderful stay!

River Oak was GREAT
5/5 stars
We recently rented River Oak Retreat for my daughter and her bridesmaids to relax, unwind and then get ready for the wedding. The house was great and the pool was an added bonus! The site manager was great! The home was clean and the kitchen was well stocked. I would definitely recommend this property!

- Manager Response
Excellent with some tweaks
4/5 stars
The location of this property is excellent, very private! Huge gorgeous trees, great landscaping and a great private pool/patio area, and an amazing view across a valley and hills beyond. The newly renovated upstairs baths are very nice. As indicated in the listing this property only only been up a short time but the manager was very responsive and agreed to make some tweaks we suggested to make the place even more enjoyable to bring it up to 5 stars.
