Cumberland Mountain vacations are ideal for people who love outdoors activities such as hunting and fishing. Some folks find nothing more satisfying than staking out in the woods and killing their dinners. It's a primitive pastime that brings men back to their evolutionary roots. Hunters can travel to Tennessee and stay in cabins with people who share their passion for hunting.

Wild boar and rams roam freely in the Cumberland Mountains, making them potential trophies for marksmen hunters. Gamesmen not only have the opportunity to hunt but also escape the stresses of their daily lives. There's something about nature retreats that makes people feel at peace. The sounds of leaves rustling, brooks meandering, and birds chirping are music to nature lovers' ears.
