Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are two very different towns that complement each other perfectly. Gatlinburg is home to the largest group of independent artisans in the country. Pigeon Forge is home to the largest fleet of outlet malls in the country. One has aquariums and museums, the other thrill rides and funnel cakes. They are both nestled in the foothills of the great Smoky mountains, and together, they make a wonderful, fun, historical, and yes, sometimes a little silly, vacation destination.

Fun in the Sun in the Shadows of the Smokies

Outdoor enthusiasts have it made in these two towns. The Great Great Smoky Mountains National Park is right here, providing endless opportunities to hike, fish, bicycle, birdwatch, swim, and picnic. Whole families of black bears make their homes here, as do wild hogs, wolves, and lovesick deer and bucks.

Speaking of which, it's not just the fauna that fall in love here. So do people. They return to get married by a waterfall or a rushing river, or perhaps renew their vows in the shadows of the mountain peaks. Theme weddings, too, are very popular, and you can get married in a chapel, in a field, or in a stagecoach. You can dress up frontier style, Renaissance style, or Victorian style. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are filled with wedding experts, and anything goes.

Winter time in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge offers day and nighttime skiing, ice skating, and snowboarding. In the summer, river rafting is immensely popular, as are canoe rides. Golf courses are open year-round.

There are music festivals, arts festivals, storytelling festivals, quilt festivals, and more. The food is good. The atmosphere is fun. In short, it's worth the trip.

Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge Log Cabins

So where do you stay? For many people, the lodging of choice for both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are the hundreds of beautiful log cabins and chalets. Hand-hewn pine logs glow with loving care. Wrap-around decks feature barbecue grills and hot tubs and mountain views to knock your socks off. Multiple bedrooms offer cable or satellite television. Game rooms have pool tables while log cabins offer rustic beauty coupled with modern convenience. They are equally popular with solitary travelers, honeymooners, and large families.

Honeymooners in particular enjoy the privacy of their own secluded cabins in the sky. Equipped with everything a loving couple needs, many honeymoon cabins are appointed with the needs of newlyweds in mind. Beautiful, luxurious bedding; a jacuzzi in the bathrooms; hot tubs on the deck; and most plenty close to all the fine restaurants and shops in Gatlinburg--and only a few minutes' drive from all the amusement park and music-show fun of Pigeon Forge.

Chalets, which are log cabins on a grand scale, feature up to six bedrooms, each of which may come with its own television set. State of the art media centers with excellent sound systems are available. Large dining rooms, and spacious living rooms with plenty of comfy seating for everyone, help keep "the family that plays together" happy to be together--by providing them plenty of personal space. Game rooms are especially popular with large groups, as they frequently have foosball tables, card tables, and quite often full-size billiard tables. Whatever the size of the group, somewhere, nestled in the trees among Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, is just about anyone's ideal for a weekend, woodlands hideaway.
