3 Reasons to Choose Smoky Mountain Cabins Over Hotels

Thinking of visiting the Tennessee Smokies? Why settle for a ho-hum hotel room? Here's a cost-effective alternative sure to please your entire family: a roomy, comfortable cabin. You'll find that Smoky Mountain cabin rentals offer a superior vacation experience, for at least three reasons.

You'll Save Money (Really!)

Most hotel rooms provide sleeping space for two to four adults, max. So, if you're traveling with friends and family, you'll have to book multiple rooms. That can end up costing a fortune.

A single cabin, on the other hand, can easily fit your entire party. Whether you need two beds or 20, you'll find a Smoky Mountain cabin that will comfortably accommodate everyone... all at one flat rental rate.

What's more, when you spread that rental rate over the number of people in your party, you'll probably find that you're saving a tidy amount per person.

You'll Have All the Comforts of Home (And Then Some)

Let's face it: The typical hotel room can feel pretty cramped. You get one or two beds, a nightstand, a TV, and a bathroom. If you're lucky, you also get a balcony with a picturesque view of the parking lot.

Smoky Mountain cabin rentals offer so much more: separate bedrooms for grownups and kids; fully equipped kitchens; plus furnished living and dining areas. Not to mention instant access to stunning natural beauty, with plenty of outdoor greenspace where kids can safely romp.

Many cabins also offer luxury amenities – from hot tubs and spacious home theaters to gorgeous fieldstone fireplaces and gourmet cooking facilities. Most provide outdoor comforts, too, such as party decks and porches, complete with porch swings and patio furniture.

Typically you'll also have access to a BBQ grill or fire pit. And, of course, you'll have incomparable views of mountains, meadows, or woodlands.

Hungry? No need to spring for an expensive restaurant meal. Simply fire up the grill – or the chef-friendly stove – and prepare a delicious dinner right there in your comfy cabin. Afterward, curl up before a crackling fire, sip hot cocoa, watch your favorite flicks, play vintage board games or the latest computer games – your options are practically endless. No hotel could ever compare!

You'll Enjoy Peace and Privacy

Have you ever been kept awake at night by a blaring TV in the next hotel room? It's a common problem. Many hotels and motels have paper-thin walls, so you may feel as if you're just a little too close to your neighbors!

With a cabin rental, on the other hand, you can get away from it all. Whether your cabin is located in a lakefront village or on a remote mountain peak, it will give you far more privacy than you'd have at any hotel. Plus, you can keep your own hours and sleep as late as you like – no need to hang that "Do Not Disturb" sign on your bedroom doorknob!
