If the closest you've been to nature lately is playing Angry Birds on your iPhone, it's time to zone out in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Escape with a plus one to Chilhowee Mountain Retreat—a B&B at an elevation of 2,200 feet on Chilhowee Mountain in Tennessee—and make your nest in The Forest View Room, The Wild Flower Room, or The Bear Room for two ($288) or three nights ($408). In addition to the expansive views and modern amenities (think flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi) in your roost, your bathroom is also stocked with Gilchrist & Soames BeeKind environmentally friendly bath products.

After a hot breakfast entrée, seasonal fruit, and an assortment of muffins each morning, linger by the fire or watch the hummingbirds (the distant, happy cousins of the disgruntled virtual birds) from the front porch with a pair of binoculars, provided for your use anywhere on the ten-acre property.

No need to worry about Angry Birds pummeling your hog—the property (close to the Tail of the Dragon) has parking designed specifically for motorcycles and motorcycle trailers. Whether you explore the Smoky Mountains on the back of a Harley, in your hiking boots, or behind a steering wheel, the trails through the national park offer an up-close experience with nature that is far more entertaining than any smartphone game.

Soar to new heights at Clingmans Dome, the highest point in the Smokies; scope the wildlife at Cades Cove; and use your included trail maps to help you decide on a hiking route (the entire park boasts more than 800 miles of trails).

When you return to the B&B, document the views with a professional digital photo (sent to you via e-mail) before sinking into a rocking chair and enjoying afternoon beverages and hors d'oeuvres on the porch. In the evening, fly over to restaurants in nearby Alcoa, Maryville, or Townsend.

Aim for the Great Smoky Mountains on this week's Escape, and you'll fuel an addiction that isn't just a pop-culture craze.

  • "The views of Great Smoky Mountains National Park are breathtaking, the accommodations are luxurious, and the breakfast was delicious! The most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Our advice would be for you to stay as many nights possible!"
