6 Reasons You’ll Love Our Cabins with Full Kitchens


Having your own kitchen gives you freedom and saves you money, too. Here are six reasons why you’ll relish having a full kitchen in your Smoky Mountain cabin.


1. SAVE MONEY

Eating in restaurants takes a big bite out of your vacation budget. A family of four spends an average of $132 a day eating out on vacation–and that’s not including snacks, according to a 2022 study.

Save money by cooking some meals at your cabin. Lay out a bagel bar or make those waffles you never have time to make at home. Let folks fix their own sandwiches at lunchtime. You’ll have more money left for attractions and shows!


2. SAVE TIME

Unless you’re dining at 24-hour eateries, you’ll have to fit your meals into restaurants’ opening hours. But what if you’ve got youngsters who get up early? Teens who are hungry all day long? Or do you just want a late breakfast or early dinner? Having your own kitchen means you can eat on whatever schedule fits your family best.


3. EAT WHAT YOU LIKE

Eat what you like, when you want. A burger for breakfast? Pancakes for dinner? Easy!. You don’t have to stick to whatever a menu says you can have at that particular time of day.


4. AVOID STRESS

Colonial Properties provides updated, reliable appliances, sturdy cookware, and utensils, ample serving and eating pieces, and gadgets like coffee makers. You don’t have to worry about hauling your own cooking gear. If something is missing, we’re here to help. How’s that for a stress-free vacation?


5. MAKE COOKING FUN AGAIN

At home, cooking can be a chore. But on vacation, you’re not rushing to get to work or school, so there’s time to bake cookies with the kids. No one has homework, so show the teens how to make that spaghetti sauce they love. Experiment with new recipes or make time to prepare old favorites from scratch.


6. MAKE COOKING PART OF YOUR SMOKIES EXPERIENCE

Eating local food doesn’t just mean trying the nearby eateries! Cook with ingredients from the Smokies. Explore farmers’ markets. Bring home Tennessee specialties like fruit wines and mountain trout. Try locally made sauces from Pepper Palace and All Sauced Up. Slather your toast with goodies from Smoky Mountain Farms Jelly House.
