We will be traveling to Knoxville from the end of July through the first couple of weeks of august. We need to be reasonably close to the UT (No more than half an hour away) because one child will likely need to be there early some mornings. That kid will be there for "work" and it is the primary focus of our trip. That said, we will have large gaps of days of time when he is not required to be at UT. I am trying to find somewhere to stay that also makes this qualify as a "vacation" for the rest of the family. We at least need a kitchen and good space for 4 people. I am not opposed to a hotel if we can find one that meets the requirements but am thinking maybe a vacation rental? Any way, I could use some idea or guidance from someone who has been to UT or lives there! Ideas?
