6 Smoky Mountain Cabin Amenities Your Family Will Love

As you plan your next vacation to the Smokies, one of the first things to decide on is a place to stay. There are all sorts of incredible lodging options in the Smoky Mountains, including hotels, campgrounds, condos, and even cabins! One advantage of staying in a cabin is that you will have all sorts of benefits that are not included with the other options. Here are 6 Smoky Mountain cabin amenities your family will love:

1. Game Room

For those evenings when you don’t feel like going out, you can enjoy a family night inside your cabin. The good news is that there is plenty of entertainment for all ages, including cabins that feature a game room. The game room can keep adults and kids alike entertained for hours with fun options such as a billiards table, video games, air hockey, table tennis, and much more! The game room also comes in handy when an afternoon rain shower puts a damper on your outdoor plans.

2. Home Theater
