Sometimes, getting away for a weekend is all you need to feel refreshed and ready to face the responsibilities of everyday life. The Smoky Mountains provide the perfect backdrop for this type of relaxing getaway. We have the best vacation rentals in Gatlinburg TN that have everything you need for a rejuvenating weekend in the mountains. The following 6 tips will help you make the most out of your time in the Smokies:

1. Make it a Three-Day Weekend

Having an extra day for your vacation makes a huge difference. It means more time spent relaxing and enjoying the scenery and not having to rush back home right away. If your trip is a last minute impulse, you could always take a sick day. This can be even better than going away on a holiday weekend as there will be less traffic and you can have a more leisurely trip home on Monday.

2. Take Advantage of Specials and Discounts

Everyone can benefit from saving money. We have a variety of cabin rental specials and discounts that help you stay within your budget when you plan your weekend getaway. Keep checking back because we add new specials and seasonal deals throughout the year!

3. Choose a Cabin With Features You’ll Love

We have many cabins with hot tubs, allowing you to relax your muscles in warm water after a day of hiking or exploring Gatlinburg’s attractions. Some of our cabins have billiards tables, which can provide pool players many hours of fun. Other amenities that you may enjoy include satellite TV, fireplaces, swimming pool access, and charcoal grills for having your own barbecues.

4. Enjoy Discounts to Area Attractions

Of course, you will spend lots of time relaxing in your cabin and appreciating the magnificent views on your weekend getaway. However, you should also leave a little time for checking out the Gatlinburg area. We make this especially tempting by offering our guests free Gatlinburg attraction tickets to a variety of local favorites. These are all very close to our cabins, making it convenient for you to save money on entertainment.

5. Be Spontaneous

It is best to leave yourself open to being a little spontaneous on your weekend trip to the Smokies. It’s fine to pencil in certain activities on your itinerary, but try not to create a rigid schedule that leaves no room for relaxation or last minute changes. Remember, the whole point of your vacation is to have fun! Sometimes the best way to do this is to make some last minute decisions.

6. Spend Some Time Appreciating Nature
