Family reunions are a time of laughter and celebration and while having a family barbecue in the backyard would work just fine, why not spice it up this year with a getaway for the whole crew? When thinking of the perfect destination for a family getaway you want space, plenty of fun things to do and the opportunity to do it on the cheap!
The small southern town of Gatlinburg and the great Smoky Mountain region checks all of these boxes. The Gatlinburg cabins operated by Diamond Mountain Rentals are the perfect homebase for everyone attending the family vacation and the area offers plenty of fun things to see and do during your stay. Still not sold? Here are a few reasons to love this quaint locale:
Many of the mountain rentals are quite large accommodating a variety of group sizes. For a family reunion cabins like Laurel Manor Downtown and Morning Glory are absolutely perfect sleeping a total of 14 guests. With four to five bedrooms situated in each home and several large communal areas there are plenty of options for sleeping the whole crew. Plus large spacious kitchens and wrap around porches provide plenty of opportunity to spread out and relax.
One of the biggest draws to this area of the country is the ever famous Smoky Mountain National Park. With such a diverse landscape and a wide platform for outdoor activities there are plenty of group engagements to do with the whole family. Plus, many of the Gatlinburg cabins are close to the park’s entry points keeping things convenient. Hiking one of the many trails is a fun way to spend the day. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy basking in the mountain air. If you’re feeling even more adventurous a zip lining tour is a memorable experience to have with the family. No matter what you enjoy doing as a crew the Smokies are full of outdoor adventure you won’t find anywhere else.
Staying in the luxurious mountain rentals is fun, but sometimes it’s good to get out and socialize. The Gatlinburg strip is just a short hop from many of the local cabins making it a convenient day trip. If you do decide to take a trip to Gatlinburg there is no end in sight to the fun you’ll experience. Take a visit to one of the eclectic local museums (Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum and the Salt and Pepper Shaker Museum are quite popular). If the guests at your family reunion are of age a trip to the Smoky Mountain distillery or the Sugarlands Wine Cellar make for a great day activity. Still more, you can enjoy a taste of the local cuisine or grab a souvenir at one of the many specialty shops in the area.
As you can see, the Smoky Mountains are the perfect place to spend your next family reunion. The mountain rentals book up fast so if you have your mind made up it’s time to begin the planning! Call our team today to get started!
