If you’ve ever considered a vacation to the Gatlinburg area before, you may have noticed that reservations in October – on everything from hotels to restaurants – are harder to come by. That’s because October is one of the most stunning months in this area, and you’ll have to come see it with your own eyes to understand why. With so much gorgeous foliage changing colors across the mountains, the weather cooling down after the long summer, and several festivals hitting the area to take advantage of the cooler nights, Gatlinburg becomes a fantastic place to explore once this month hits.
While it’s always fun to be right in the action of Gatlinburg, there is something to be said for a bit of seclusion as well. During this month, waking up to see panoramic views of the gold and red leaves across the mountains is worth a little space from the action. One of our most amazing cabins with a view is Point of View, where you can see both Mount LeConte and Pinnacle Vista. The cabin may offer the perfect getaway, but it’s not as far from the fun as you may think. Just three and a half miles away is downtown, where you’ll find tons of things to do in Gatlinburg.
Our cabins in Gatlinburg offer easy access to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you’ll find tons of great fun and adventure. Explore the stunning season from the ground by hiking to a waterfall or taking a fun guided tour on horseback! Or get yourself an aerial view from a zip line in the trees. You can also find tons of fishing, although the water may be getting a little too cold for kayaking or swimming. Many of our cabins offer fishing right off the back door or the porch so that you can make your catch and then come in right away to have it cooked in the cabin’s fully equipped kitchen.
There is something about the cooler weather that makes the streets of Gatlinburg come to life. If you are looking for fun things to do in Gatlinburg, you can easily hit the Strip and find live music, storytelling performances, and even mimes! October is the perfect month to book a stay in one of Diamond Mountain Rentals’ Gatlinburg cabins because there are many festivals and other events that take place. You can enjoy them all as much as you like, and then retreat to the comfortable seclusion of your favorite cabin in Gatlinburg. Stay in as much as you like, go out to explore, or meet everyone in the middle. The choice is yours when you book a stay in our Gatlinburg cabins.
