9 Wonderful Things to Do While Staying in a Cabin


1. Play Games

Get a cabin with a game room and play pool, foosball, air hockey, arcade games, and more. Challenge your family to a tournament. You’re on vacation and can play as long as you want!

2. Relax on Your Deck

Beautiful outdoor spaces are a Smokies specialty. Melt cares away in your deck’s hot tub. Sit back on an Adirondack chair with a glass of moonshine. Finally, start that book you’ve been too busy to read.

3. Hold a Film Festival

Don’t let cabins’ rustic outsides fool you. Inside you’ll find plenty of modern entertainment with Wi-Fi, cable, satellite, and streaming. Curate your own movie nights. Who gets to pick the movies first?

4. Watch Wildlife

Spy speedy chipmunks, busy squirrels, and maybe even a raccoon family from your cabin. The Smokies are home to more than 120 species of birds, from black-capped chickadees to red-breasted nuthatches. Listen for the hoot of owls at night!

5. Gather Around the Fire

Choose a cabin with an outdoor fire pit, then grab some marshmallows! Make s’mores whenever you like. Tell ghost stories around the dancing flames. Pick out constellations overhead.

6. Make Cooking Fun

The fully equipped kitchen provides all you need to whip up a meal. Bonus: Most cabins have grills for that flame-cooked flavor. Experiment with Tennessee sauces and marinades. Pick up fresh ingredients at farmer’s markets. Enjoy cooking without the working-day rush.

7. Visit Our Festivals

Ready to get out? You’re close to so many festivals! Winterfest sparkles with millions of holiday lights. Spring brings the Anakeesta Blooms & Tunes fest. All Gatlinburg comes alive for Smoky Mountain Tunes and Tales in summer. Dollywood–home to festivals year-round–features its Harvest Festival in fall, with spectacular pumpkin displays.

8. Soak Up Attractions

Where else can you visit the Titanic, gawk at Hollywood superstars, get a selfie with the Batmobile and touch a stingray, all on the same vacation? Nowhere but here. Your cabin is home base for outings for everyone from history buffs to pop culture fans to nature lovers.

9. Thrill to Outdoor Adventures

Ziplines and mountain coasters are so plentiful, that you’ll find them near any cabin you choose. And the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is close by for hikes and picnics.

A private rental cabin is your ticket to fun, whether you hang out at the cabin or explore all the conveniently close attractions. Reserve your Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge cabin now.
