1. Choose the Dates For Your Vacation
The first step in planning the ideal vacation is to decide when you want to travel. You could stay for a weekend, a whole week, or even longer, depending on your schedule. The Gatlinburg area offers lots of holiday events during the Christmas season and many local restaurants are open for holiday meals and celebrations.
2. Decide Who You Want to Invite
You can plan a quiet holiday with your immediate family or make it into a large gathering that includes extended family and friends. Alpine Chalet Rentals offers cabins to suit groups of every size. Our vacation rentals range from one bedroom Gatlinburg cabins for romantic, low key holidays to cabins with nine or more bedrooms for family reunions.
3. Choose Your Cabin
Browse through our selection and find the right cabin for your holiday vacation. Many of our cabins feature incredible mountain views, lots of privacy, and a variety of amenities. Guests will also enjoy special features such as hot tubs, pool tables, home theaters, fireplaces and more.
4. Learn About the Area
East Tennessee offers a wide range of things to do. This includes the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park as well as many attractions in downtown Gatlinburg. From November 10, 2014 – February 27, 2015, the Smokies will celebrating Winterfest, an annual series of seasonal events. Visitors can look forward to millions of LED holiday lights, fantastic Christmas parades, and a New Years Eve ball drop from the Gatlinburg Space Needle.
5. Get Ready to Enjoy Your Vacation
Prepare yourself for a relaxing holiday getaway in a beautiful Smoky Mountain cabin. You should pack strategically, but don’t bring more than you need. You will be in the mountains, so bring some warm clothes, hiking boots and other outdoor gear. Remember, all of our cabins are fully furnished, so there is no need to bring linens or kitchenware.
