The more money you save on your cabin rental, the more money you have to spend on Pigeon Forge’s shows, attractions, and shops. Use these questions to start the search for an affordable Pigeon Forge cabin.
1. HOW MUCH SPACE DO YOU NEED?
Save money by getting a cabin that’s not too big, not too small but–as Goldilocks would say–just right. How many bedrooms do you really need? How important is it to you to have, for instance, a second living area? Are you willing to pay a little more if you want the kids to have their own separate space to sprawl?
Figure out your priorities for privacy and sleeping arrangements. You can search Colonial Properties & Resort Rentals’ cabin listings by the number of bedrooms you want.
2. WHAT AMENITIES ARE YOUR MUST-HAVES?
You want to stick to your budget. But you also shouldn’t skimp on extras that make your Pigeon Forge vacation special.
Choosing a cabin saves money because amenities like game rooms, fire pits, private outdoor spaces, in-cabin movie theaters, and swimming pool access all give you activities right there at your cabin, saving money while having a blast! Decide which amenities you simply have to have and search for cabins with them. Bonus: Many cabins come with hot tubs, pool tables, and other amenities as standard!
3. CAN YOU SHARE THE COST?
Sharing your rental costs with other guests is a great way to make a luxurious cabin remarkably affordable for everyone. For less than what each of you would pay for a night in a hotel, you get much more than a bedroom. Use our “split cost calculator,” a handy tool on our website showing you how much each guest would pay per night if you share the cost of your rental.
4. ARE THERE DISCOUNT CODES OR SPECIAL OFFERS?
Booking a cabin directly, instead of through a third-party website, can save money. Look for discounts for direct booking. Some occupations get you a discount, too: At Colonial Properties, active and retired members of firefighting, police, or military services get a 10 percent discount off nightly rates as a thank-you for their dedication.
5. CAN YOU VISIT PIGEON FORGE IN THE OFF SEASON?
The Smokies are busiest in summer and fall. Why not skip the peak travel season and visit in the winter, when attractions, restaurants, and shops are less crowded? You’ll save money on many cabin rentals, too.
