Is it time for a get-away, but you don’t want another hectic vacation? If you have ever dreamed about that ‘little cabin in the woods’ - here is your chance. You can find the perfect cabin near (or even in) the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
Do something different for your family’s vacation this year, or exchange the rat-race for a quiet weekend getaway. No long lines at a theme park, no sunburns on the beach when you take advantage of the beautiful mountain views in your own private cabin.
Depending on how many people are in your party, you can choose your location and the cabin you prefer. There are cabins literally a stone’s throw from creeks and streams or snugly nestled into the woods.
Even though you’re in the mountains, you aren’t far from fun things to do. Hiking trails, white water rafting and horseback riding are activities nearby that you can enjoy, or you can sit on the porch and read a good book while appreciating the nature of the Smoky Mountains.
If you’re a fisherman or want to teach your kids how to fish, don’t be shy about putting a line into one of the blue-ribbon trout streams that wind around the cabins.
Just because the cabins are in the woods doesn’t mean they’re not equipped with the comforts of home.
Each cabin has central heat and air, washer and dryer, a fully equipped kitchen with microwave. Don’t worry about packing kitchen items because cookware and dinnerware are included, as well as toaster, coffee pot and other important items.
You’ll even have a flat-screen TV with satellite - though you may decide to hide the remote and let the mountains be your entertainment.
Bringing your family to the mountains can be a time for bonding with the kids and showing them, they don’t need the electronics to have a good time. They’ll love being outdoors and finding new ways to enjoy their day.
Visiting the mountains on a romantic retreat may be just what you and your partner need to put the spark back into your relationship. Choose a cabin with a hot tub where you can sip a beverage and listen to the sounds of the mountains. What better way to reconnect with your loved one?
Just sitting on the porch under the stars or watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee will make you want to return time and time again.
When you stay in the mountains, you get away from the traffic, noise and your hectic routines. Whether you decide to stay busy with outdoor activities or just soak in the magic of the mountains, you’ll never forget the fascination you feel each time you visit.
Leave your phones in your suitcase throughout your stay and forget about time and appointments. When you’re in the mountains – sun up and sun down will be your clocks. Let the Great Smoky Mountains set your schedule. Indulge yourself and embrace the mountains.
