This was going to be a nature-watching trip for the family, and you had the whole agenda planned out: A hike to Mt. LeConte, a nature walk in Cades Cove and even visits to animal-themed attractions like Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies in Gatlinburg and Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo in Sevierville. But your spouse and children seem to be content with what they're seeing from the wraparound porch of your two-bedroom cabin in the Smokies. An abundance of mature hardwoods surround the cabin and frame the views of the valley and mountains beyond. And you may also find that nature has a hard time competing with amenities like the outdoor hot tub, the game room with the pool table, foosball/multi game table and the multiple satellite TVs and DVD/VCR combos. But don't worry. You'll still get to see plenty of that wildlife. And when you come back to your cabin at the end of the day, you can do steaks on the charcoal grill and let your tired muscles soak as you relax in the whirlpool tub in the master suite. See? The comforts of home do have their advantages.
