Six Reasons Why a Gatlinburg Cabin Is A Perfect Family Vacation Spot.jpg

Satisfying everyone from kids to grandparents is a breeze in a spacious cabin. Here’s why a family cabin in Gatlinburg is the ideal family break.

1. Plenty of Amenities for Everyone

Fun extras make a cabin special. Relax in a hot tub with a mountain view. Play pool, air hockey, foosball or arcade games. Get toasty by the blazing fireplace. Enjoy the luxury of flat-screen TVs in room after room (in some cabins, you get a private movie theater!). Experience the relaxation of a jetted bathtub in the master bedroom. Splash in a private pool, or enjoy special access to a community pool.

2. Convenient locations near the most popular attractions

You’ll feel like you’ve escaped civilization—yet you’re minutes from Gatlinburg. This town offers something for every taste and age. Visit theme parks, museums, the aquarium, and local zoos. Feed the need for speed with skiing, go-karts, gravity coasters, ziplines, and all-season tubing. Hike the serene national park, or visit fascinating historic sites.

3. Space for the Whole Family to Enjoy

A hotel room is just that—one room. A cabin lets you spread out so everyone gets personal space too. Sprawl across your living room, game room, den, comfy bedrooms, maybe a loft with a view. And there’s plenty of space outside, with decks, patios, picnic spots, all just a step beyond your door.

4. Perfect for Big or Small Families

Cabins, like families, come in all sizes. Pick a cozy nest for your small family, or if you’re vacationing with a crowd, look for cabins that sleep more—some cabins accommodate 20 or more guests comfortably. For reunions or multi-family gatherings, rent neighboring cabins. Everyone gets privacy, yet you’re all close together.

5. All of the Comforts of Home

Cabins give you homelike convenience. You’ll have 24/7 access to a fully equipped kitchen to prepare your food, your way, on your schedule. Long for true family meals? The whole family can gather around the dining table—or on the deck, or in the screened porch. A muddy outing isn’t a problem when you have a washer and dryer in the cabin. Need to check email? No problem with in-cabin wi-fi.

6. Create Special Family Memories

Vacationing together creates time to try new things. Organize a board game tournament. See who can spot the most animals outside your cabin windows. Stay up extra late watching movies, or get up extra early to catch the sunrise. Take advantage of your cabin’s outdoor fire pit and make s’mores under the stars.

Come to the Smoky Mountains for a family vacation everyone will remember with a smile.
