Unlike hotels or condos, a large cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains lets you get away with a big group of friends, family members, or coworkers under one roof. At Timber Tops Luxury Cabins, we have a wonderful selection of 8 bedroom Gatlinburg cabins that are perfect for this purpose. To help give you some ideas, we have put together a guide to the five most popular group vacations people enjoy at our large cabins.

1. Family Reunions

Our 8 bedroom Gatlinburg cabins are ideal for getting together with family members you haven’t seen in a while. The Smokies are centrally located just a day’s drive from over 60% of the nation’s population, making it a convenient meeting place for relatives who live in different parts of the country. East Tennessee also boasts unsurpassed natural beauty, providing an incredibly scenic backdrop for your family reunion. Our large cabins can sleep as many as 30 people, so you’ll have room for all of your aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins, and even third cousins once removed! Guests will enjoy a variety of amenities that make it easy for everyone to have fun and socialize, such as fully furnished kitchens, game rooms, and home theaters.

2. Weddings and Honeymoons

If you’re looking for a romantic setting for your wedding, you just can’t beat a large cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains. There are several advantages to having your wedding right in your vacation rental. Cabin weddings provide a more economical alternative to traditional venues, and they are large enough for family members from both the bride and the groom’s side of the family to arrive early and have a place to stay. Finally, the married couple can stay on after the wedding and have their honeymoon in Gatlinburg! The Smokies are full of many beautiful and exciting destinations for couples to explore.

3. Religious and Spiritual Retreats

Gatlinburg is also a popular destination for church retreats. The relaxing atmosphere of the area makes it a great spot for contemplation and meditation. Throughout history, monks and other religious devotees have retreated to the mountains when they wanted time apart from civilization. Our large cabins can accommodate church groups who are looking for a large and comfortable place to house their members. Cabins and the surrounding area are perfect for prayer, religious study groups, and devotionals.

4. Holiday Getaways With Friends

The Great Smoky Mountains provide a healthy and festive atmosphere where friends can spend time together over a holiday weekend like Memorial Day, Independence Day, or Labor Day. You could also arrange a getaway to celebrate a special event, such as a birthday, anniversary, or graduation. Large cabins can comfortably accommodate couples, singles, and people with kids. Friends can have lots of fun right in their cabin, cooking group meals, watching movies, or enjoying a game of pool. You can also explore some of the area’s many attractions with a picnic in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a ziplining trip at Legacy Mountain, or a fun afternoon at Dollywood.

5. Corporate Retreats
