From bubbling hot tubs and Jacuzzi baths, to cozy fireplaces and breathtaking views, we have everything you need for a romantic winter getaway or fun family vacation. Here is how to plan a Great Smoky Mountains winter vacation in five steps:
1. Select Your Ideal Cabin
Alpine Chalet Rentals has a wide selection of cabins available for rent during the winter months! Determine how many folks will be joining you on your trip so that you can pick the perfect sized cabin for your group. Whether you require a 1 bedroom Smoky Mountain cabin for you and your sweetheart or an 8 bedroom Smoky Mountain cabin for the whole gang, we can surely meet your needs. If you are planning a winter vacation of a week or more, take advantage of our year round special where we offer every 7th night free!
2. Pack Appropriately
The winter months in the Smokies can certainly be a bit chilly, so be sure to pack your warm coats, gloves, and other winter gear that you might need while visiting the region. This is especially important if you plan to spend a significant amount of time outside, whether taking a hike through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, skiing on the slopes of Ober Gatlinburg, or enjoying the Smoky Mountain Christmas Festival at Dollywood. Keep in mind that our cabins feature full kitchens with modern amenities, so feel free to bring groceries or snacks from home to your cabin.
3. Check the Weather Forecast
As the winter season can bring snow to the Smoky Mountains, check the weather forecast before leaving home to ensure that the travel conditions are safe. Many of our cabins offer WiFi access, so you can keep up to date on the weather, regardless if you are planning your travel back home or to some of the area’s local attractions.
While you are on your Great Smoky Mountains winter vacation, you might actually cross your fingers for some snow, as it brings a magical beauty to the mountains surrounding your cabin! This also presents a fun opportunity to play around in the snow with the kids, whether it is making snow angels, having a snowball fight, or trying to catch a snowflake on your tongue. Remember that you can always warm up by relaxing in your cabin’s Jacuzzi or sitting by the fireplace!
4. Plan Some Winter Activities
Despite the colder weather, there are plenty of fantastic activities to enjoy throughout the region in the winter months! Many of the popular local attractions are located indoors and can be enjoyed in any temperature, such as Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. Head out to a local restaurant to enjoy some delicious traditional Southern cooking, or visit one of the popular local theatres to enjoy a toe tapping performance. Of course, one of the best activities for a winter vacation in the Smokies is to simply kick back and appreciate the many delightful amenities in your cabin!
5. Bring Your Furry Companion
If you want to bring along your beloved pet for a winter vacation, Alpine Chalet Rentals offers over a dozen pet friendly Smoky Mountain cabins to accommodate your needs. We understand that pets are part of the family, and many dogs absolutely love walking and playing in the snow. Bringing your pooch on vacation also saves money on kennel fees, and it’s guaranteed to make your kids happy too!
