Thanksgiving is right around the corner and it’s time to cue the pumpkin pie, turkey legs, and Grandma’s famous stuffing. For many families, Thanksgiving is viewed as a time to reconnect with relatives and relax. Unfortunately, what’s meant to be a low key weekend can quickly turn into a nightmare. Think about all the times you’ve stressed about food preparation and coordination, mediated a heated political dispute over dinner or assisted a family member with a travel mishap. The details can be overwhelming, so why not put these worries aside and spend the holiday somewhere new?
If this plan sounds good to you, the Smoky Mountain region is an excellent Thanksgiving travel destination. The selection of cabins from Diamond Mountain Rentals offers the perfect mix of modern amenities and natural wonder. Still not sold? Here are a few convincing reasons to choose cabins in Gatlinburg for this year’s holiday festivities.
Gatlinburg cabins come in a variety of sizes and can sleep anywhere from 2-14 guests. Cabin spaces like Laurel Manor or A Walk in the Clouds are great options for large families, while the Sugar Shack or Black Bear Cove offer a cozier space for two. Whether you’re a newlywed couple getting away for your first Thanksgiving or the family matriarch planning a stay for the whole family, cabins in Gatlinburg offer something for any situation. Most of the cabins come equipped with a full kitchen, dining area, and cozy sleeping spaces. If you book early, you might even score a space with a nice deck, hot tub, or entertainment room. Regardless, each cabin comes complete with the essentials so you’ll have everything you need for the long weekend.
The traditional Thanksgiving festivities involve a lot of food and hibernation. How many times have you found yourself glued to the television after your Thanksgiving feast? There’s no doubt the pounds stack up if you stay inactive. When spending a weekend in the majestic Smoky Mountains, though, it’s nearly impossible to pass up on a little exploring. Many cabins are located in close proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (including Mountain Mist and Mountain Magic cabins) and offer breathtaking views and easy access to the park’s trails and wildlife. If staying in Gatlinburg cabins, you also have the option of renting bikes or four-wheelers from the city center. You and the family can stay active all weekend long while enjoying an unparalleled dose of scenic beauty and fresh mountain air.
If you’re like most modern families, you have a budget -- especially around the holiday season. With Christmas right around the corner, it’s important to select a travel destination that won’t break the bank. The cabins in Gatlinburg are extremely affordable and their family-style nature makes cost sharing a great option. With Gatlinburg cabins, you don’t have to sacrifice quality to enjoy a bargain, as each space offers a wealth of amenities in a price range that suits any budget. Additionally, many activities in the area are free! Soaking up the great outdoors won’t cost a dime and will allow you to make memories that will last a lifetime.
