5 Reasons to Choose Smoky Mountain Cabin Rentals Instead of a Hotel

Are you trying to decide between renting a cabin or staying in a hotel for your next vacation in the Smoky Mountains? We can help! Read below to find all of the reasons why we know you and your family or group will be more comfortable staying in a Smoky Mountain cabin rental during your next getaway.

1. Added Privacy

The biggest appeal of staying in Great Smoky Mountain log cabin rentals is the added level of privacy these rentals offer. Not only do you not have to worry about sharing a thin wall with another family or group, but you also don’t have to worry about strangers walking past your door at all hours of the night because you get to stay in your own private vacation home during your stay.

That’s right! Just as if you were in your own home, area cabins give you and your loved ones complete privacy throughout your vacation. The only people you have to share this space with are the ones you invited to enjoy a getaway with.

2. Space to RelaxChairs sitting on the deck of a cabin rental in Pigeon Forge with mountain views.

Another benefit that comes with staying in Smoky Mountain cabin rentals instead of a hotel during your vacation is the extra space you and your family or group will have to stretch out and relax. Unlike cramped hotel rooms, cabins give you more than just a single room with a couple of beds and an attached bathroom. Instead, you have the option to choose a cabin with as many private bedrooms as you need to feel comfortable.

The space is even more impressive when you factor in the extra sleeping capacity that the sleeper sofas and loft bedrooms give you. It is easy for your family or group to stay together inside these cabins without having to divide up into separate rooms during your stay.

3. Pet-Friendly Options

As you know, a family vacation isn’t a true family vacation unless you get to bring all your loved ones with you to share in the experience, including your dog. That is why we are pleased to say another perk you get with renting cabins over hotel rooms is you can easily bring your pet to join you for your trip. No longer do you have to scramble to find a kennel or a dog sitter before you can enjoy your vacation. Instead, you can simply load everyone into the car and head to the mountains!

Even though many hotels offer pet friendly accommodations, you and your pet will be much more comfortable with the extra space and comforts of a pet friendly cabin.

4. Fully-Equipped Kitchen

Even though vacations are meant to be a time for you and your family to relax and unwind, there is just something about a delicious home-cooked dinner when you are away that makes the meal even more enjoyable. Maybe is is the scenic views surrounding you or maybe it is having access to a fully-equipped kitchen during your vacation makes this experience memorable. Either way, we promise you will not be disappointed in having the ability to prepare meals for your family when you choose to stay in a cabin.

Now, instead of having to eat out every meal or confine your food choices to only things you can fit in a mini-fridge, you can choose to stay in comfortably and save money!
