An adventurous traveler usually has a few qualities in common with rivers: Both have the strength to traverse over great stretches of land, the flexibility to move at different speeds, and the good fortune to pop up in some of the world's most beautiful places.

Trickle down to Cosby, Tennessee, for an Escape for two to the Creekwalk Inn at Whisperwood Farm, and go with the flow for four nights in the Great Smoky Mountains ($554).

Evoking the country charm of its pastoral surroundings, the inn features décor like quilted beds and tree-branch headboards, and some rooms have doors leading to the porch. All dripping with coziness, the Little Cataloochee, Grotto Falls, Jumpoff, or Balsam Mountain Room are yours to choose from. Unwind on an early-evening stroll along the inn's namesake creek, before drifting off to the sound of crickets.

In the morning, flood your plate with a gourmet breakfast served in bed, in the dining room, or on the porch. Every entrée—such as the brandied peach French toast with apple-cured bacon or the asparagus and portabella quiche with a sausage roll—is prepared using local or organic ingredients whenever possible. Once the last bite has washed over your taste buds, then it's about time to visit America's most visited national park.

Follow the current of more than 150 official paths through Great Smoky Mountains National Park, including the Ramsey Cascades and the Appalachian Trail, and then open your pre-packed meal for lunch beneath the trees.

Later, take in the wildlife at Cades Cove or drive along Newfound Gap Road to take in panoramic vistas. When you're not using your including hiking map to see the best sights in the park you can plunge into a pie-baking class at the inn. Afterward, enjoy the perfect ending to a splendid mountain getaway: a slice of fresh-out-of-the-oven pie.

With a price tag that is a bit watered down, you can go full stream ahead to the Smoky Mountains.

  • "After a soak in our whirlpool tub and a restful night, we awoke to an amazing breakfast. And we came back from a long day of hiking to freshly baked cookies and a waiting umbrella to ward off the rain."
