So you’re planning a trip to the Smokies, eh? One of the first things you’ll probably want to do is book your accommodations. Sure, there are tons of options for that, including that trusty old standby, the hotel. But this time around, think outside the box of a hotel room when it comes to your overnight lodging. Think about trying Smoky Mountain cabin rentals.
At Timbercreek Cabin Rentals, one of our biggest advantages is that we have different size cabins to suit just about anyone traveling to the Great Smoky Mountains. With properties ranging from one to five bedrooms, we can meet your needs, whether you’re traveling solo or with a large group. Here are a few guidelines for choosing the cabin that fits you best.
If you’re traveling alone or with a significant other, we recommend going with a one-bedroom cabin. A smaller cabin has that cozy feel to it, which is ideal if your intentions are to get away for a romantic weekend, anniversary trip or honeymoon.
Anything larger than a one-bedroom would be overkill, and even if you have a child or two with you, you can most likely still make it work by implementing your cabin’s fold-out couch, if that applies to your specific property.
Two-bedroom cabins offer a lot of flexibility. That will provide comfortable sleeping for four guests, whether it’s a couple with children or perhaps two couples enjoying some friend time in the mountains. And again, if the cabin has a foldout couch, you could even incorporate two additional people into your travel plans.
Three-, four– and five-bedroom properties are more suited to the larger groups. Maybe you’re planning a family reunion in the mountains, or maybe your work group is looking for a place for a corporate retreat or team-building getaway. We often host church groups or other organizations looking for some peaceful time in the mountains of East Tennessee. In any of these cases, a larger cabin will do the trick for as many as 20 guests.
The best thing about a cabin is that regardless of size, you’ll find all the comforts of home on site to make your stay in the mountains a luxurious one. Enjoy perks like fireplaces, outdoor hot tubs, whirlpool tubs, game rooms and fully equipped kitchens. The kitchens especially make it more cost-effective to stay in the Smokies, considering that you can easily defray the expenses of dining out by shopping for food and preparing your breakfasts, lunches and snacks in the cabin. And with the assistance of the outdoor grill, you could even fire up steaks or hotdogs for dinner if you’re not up for visiting a local restaurant.
Cabins are also the way to go if you’re wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg or Sevierville. No noisy neighbors, no screaming kids at the pool into the late hours, no constant rumble of traffic. Just kick back on the deck of your cabin and enjoy the symphony of nature as the crickets and bullfrogs serenade you and your guests into a Smoky Mountain evening.
