5 Benefits of Renting a Cabin for Thanksgiving in the Smoky Mountains

Spending Thanksgiving in the Smoky Mountains is one of the best decisions you will make this holiday season. Believe it or not, taking a vacation can save you lots of time and work, so you don’t have to deal with the stress of the holiday. Here are 6 benefits of renting a cabin for Thanksgiving in the Smoky Mountains:

1. No Cleaning

Say goodbye to having to deep clean for the holidays! Sure, it’s nice to have a clean home after spending time deep cleaning. But at the holiday time, it’s hard to find enough time in your day to clean your house to the point of being suitable for many guests.

When you choose a vacation rental for Thanksgiving, you don’t have to worry about keeping the place clean or making sure there’s enough clean dishes, towels, etc. for everyone. The cabin rental company will be cleaned to perfection before you arrive, and you won’t even need to stress about having to clean after the stay!

2. Restaurants and Attractions for Everyone

When you spend Thanksgiving in the Smoky Mountains, there’s plenty of things to do. Even during the holiday season, attractions and restaurants are still open. Many of the attractions, whether you’re looking for a big adventure like ziplining, a family experience like Dollywood or a quick afternoon attraction like playing putt-putt golf or riding go-karts, there’s everything in the Smoky Mountains. Fitting for all ages, visitors can find attractions and restaurants that are perfect for everyone.

When you get your family together for the holiday in your home, you have to spend time planning games and fun things to do. Your area may not have as much to do as the Smoky Mountains, so a visit to the Smokies may be more fun for everyone involved!

3. Room for All Guests

Fortunately, when you rent a cabin rental for vacation, you can choose a place that has enough room for everyone. This way, everyone has their own beds and their own space. No one will feel like they’re intruding on any personal space and everyone will be much more comfortable throughout the entire trip. The Smoky Mountains are home to a variety of cabins, from cozy 1 bedroom cabins to large group cabins. Whether you’re spending Thanksgiving with your close family members or a huge group of family and friends, you can find a cabin with enough space for everyone.

4. Enough TVs for Everyone

Some families like to watch TV on Thanksgiving Day — it’s been a tradition for many people for many years. Between the football games and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, it’s important to have enough TVs for everyone to watch what they want!

At your house, you may not have enough TVs to please everyone, so you will constantly be flipping back and forth between channels. When you choose to stay in a Smoky Mountain cabin rental, you don’t have to worry about having enough TVs. Everyone can watch what they want, when they want! There are even cabins with home theaters so you can watch the games on the big screen!

5. View of the Mountains

During the summer and spring seasons, the weather is great and the trees are bright green throughout. In the fall season, the leaves change from green to stunning shades of red, yellow and orange. Then, in the winter the leaves fall, but the mountaintops are covered in a beautiful, soft, white snow.

Even though you may have a beautiful view from your home, we bet it doesn’t compare to the view you could have on Thanksgiving in the Smoky Mountains! See the last of the beautiful fall foliage, and maybe even a chance of snow in the higher elevations!
