Although the winter weather seems as if it will never end, we at Timber Tops Luxury Cabin Rentals are thrilled to be counting down the days until it is spring in the Smoky Mountains. We are not doing this just because it means that we will be able to wave goodbye to all this cold weather, but we are also excited to see the return of all the vibrant beauty that this season brings.

Read below to discover all the reasons we love spring in the Smoky Mountains.

Affordable Cabin Rentals

One of the reasons spring in the Smoky Mountains is one of the best times of year for families and guests to visit the area is all of the affordable Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg cabin rentals that are available to rent at this time. Unlike peak travel times like the fall and around the holidays, families traveling during the spring will have their choice of cheap and affordable cabins that they can spend a few days relaxing inside.

Blooming of Smoky Mountain Wildflowers

The biggest appeal to experience spring in the Smoky Mountains is that you and your family will get a chance to see all of the beautiful Smoky Mountain wildflowers come into bloom first hand. That’s right, beginning mid-March to early-April, everywhere you turn you will see an array of beautiful flowers. This includes in the mountains, along the Parkway, and even in front of your own Smoky Mountain cabin rental.

Just like the fall leaves, the spring wildflowers in the Smoky Mountains is a stunning sight that everyone who loves the Smokies should experience at least once. In fact, there is even an entire event dedicated to the wildflowers, the Smoky Mountain Wildflower Pilgrimage.

A five-day event, the Smoky Mountain Wildflower Pilgrimage offers guests an inside look at all of the natural beauty found in spring in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This includes guided walks, photo adventures, lectures, demonstrations, and much more.

Wildlife Coming Out of Hibernation

Second to the wildflowers, guests planning a trip to see spring in the Smoky Mountains will be pleased to find that this is also the time where much of the area’s playful wildlife come out of hibernation.

For the best chance of catching a sneak peak of the park’s wildlife, we suggest you and your family plan a trip to Cades Cove during your spring vacation in the Smoky Mountains. Not only is this area best known for all the animals that call it home, but there are also several homesites and historic buildings that you all can explore to learn some of the history of the Great Smoky Mountains.

When you are here, be sure to stop by the Cades Cove Visitor Center to pick up a souvenir or two, including locally-made jams, jellies, biscuit mixes, and more! The visitor center is located near the half-way point of the Cades Cove Loop Road.
