There are literally thousands of hotel rooms throughout the Smoky Mountain region, but perhaps you want to do something a little different—maybe a little more secluded and romantic than the typical franchise hotel or a motel located right next to a mini golf course. If that’s you, you might want to look into staying at one of the warm and cozy cabins that Gatlinburg has to offer.
There are several different types of cabins and chalets in the area, and you might be surprised to know that the prices are very comparable to what you would spend at many of the hotels around. Of course, the price factor is entirely dependent on where you stay, but Gatlinburg offers several varieties of cabins—large and small alike.
One of the more popular cabin companies in the Smokies is Acorn Cabin Rentals. Depending on what kind of cabin you stay in, and how long you want to stay, you can find accommodations with them for as little as $100 a night—about on par with some of the middle-tier hotels in the area. Of course, just like many of the cabin properties around, the longer you stay, the more you save.
Another company that is worth checking out is Timber Tops Luxury Cabin Rentals. What’s that? You see the word luxury, and you start to sweat just a little. Make no mistake about it; these cabins are something like you would read about in a high-end home interior magazine. But, several of these cabins are huge…which means that if you and some of your friends go in together, the final tab could actually even be a little less per person or per couple than you would pay anywhere else.
You can also have all the amenities and luxuries that you would enjoy in a hotel and then some. Take, for instance, About The Smokies Cabin and Chalet Rentals. Listen to the description of their aptly-titled “Brink Of Heaven” cabin: 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, 2 Jacuzzi tubs, 2 Televisions, a pool table, an outdoor hot tub, and a fireplace. Sounds inviting, huh?
Then, if you’re visiting the area to take in some Tennessee Volunteers football action, there’s the “Gameday Getaway” log cabin, which includes 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a foosball table, and an incredible 5 televisions. You could keep up with the entire Southeastern Conference by simply going from room to room!
Many people who stay in a cabin, chalet, or bed and breakfast in the area have the best of both worlds. They are in a little more secluded of a spot, which lends itself toward privacy…but venture a few miles out, and you’re in the heart of all the eating, shopping, and entertainment that the Smokies have to offer.
