1. Find accommodations with room for everyone.
Nothing puts a damper on your family vacation like being crammed in a tiny hotel room. When you stay at a three bedroom cabin Gatlinburg, you’ll have plenty of room to spread out. With room for anywhere from 6 to 10 guests, three bedroom cabins are comfortably spacious for most families. If you’re planning a family reunion, we even offer a 12 bedroom cabin with space for 54 people!


2. Enjoy all of the free entertainment in your cabin.
Your kids will never be bored when they stay in a cabin! Many of our vacation rentals come with excellent game rooms featuring ping pong, billiards, and arcade games. We also offer cabins with superb home theater systems, some of which come with expansive video libraries. After a long day of outdoor fun in the Smokies, there is nothing better than a family movie night or game night.
3. Make the most of your cabin’s kitchen.
All of our cabins come with fully equipped kitchens, so you can whip up delicious meals with ease. Cooking a meal together is a great vacation activity for families. We suggest starting your day off right with a big pancake breakfast!
4. Visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
No trip to Gatlinburg is complete without a trip to the national park! The Smokies are one of the most beautiful places to visit in the world, particularly during the fall months. Check out the Great Smoky Mountains National Park website for a great list of thing to do:


5. Don’t forget to bring your camera.
Be sure to bring your camera on your trip to the Smokies so you can capture all of the wonderful vacation memories you’ll make. Whether you use the photos for your holiday card, or you just keep them in an album, you’ll love looking back on these pictures for years to come.
