It's nice to take a family vacation in a city that offers enough major attractions to keep you busy for several days. Staying in a hotel on a beautiful beach lets you soak up the sun and browse through arcades, but how many days in a row can you lie there without anything to explore? For a terrific family getaway with a different flavor, mountain cabins in the Great Smoky Mountains are fast becoming a popular choice.

Mountain Cabin Rentals

In the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area of Tennessee, just a few miles from Great Smoky Mountain National Park, there are hundreds of mountain cabins available for rental throughout the year. These cabins are unique. Most are owned by individuals and are rented out by professional management companies. They are modern and beautifully decorated, and most come with exceptional amenities including king-sized beds, big screen televisions with cable or satellite hookups, and even hot tubs. Their best features, however, are the mountain views.

Couples, families, or groups can relax and enjoy the quiet and serenity that the mountains provide. Just walking mountain trails or having a barbecue on the porch can bring families together in new ways. Surrounded by nature, there is an opportunity to take a few deep breaths and remember what life is all about.

Things to Do in Gatlinburg

One of the Southeast's premier vacation spots, Gatlinburg offers visitors a wide range of activities and attractions that will delight them. In addition to Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Dollywood is just a short drive away, and there are over 40 great places to share good times. Earthquake--the Ride, the Gatlinburg Sky Lift, Mysterious Mansion, the Smoky Mountain Winery, and Ripley's Aquarium are just a few. There are festivals throughout the year and a midnight parade on the Fourth of July. Mountain cabin rentals can be viewed and reserved online.
