Need ideas! Driving from Tampa to Gatlinburg

We're driving from Tampa to Gatlinburg this week and want to stay somewhere nice, maybe a bed and breakfast along the way. Any ideas? We've already been to the Dillard House (which we love!) in Georgia, so we want to try somewhere different. Thanks!

Depends on how far you want to drive the first day. You should be able to find something really nice around Atlanta. After that it will depend on the route you are taking. Are you staying on I-75 or are you heading up thru 19 to 441? We like the area near Lake Chatugua. Its very pretty there. Its still in Georgia but just outside of Highlands / Franklyn area. Nice drive thru there and if you can take your time there are some great waterfalls in the Highlands area. You might also look into Blue Ridge Georgia, very small but quaint town.

You could always stop in Helen, GA.
