This lovely small town east of Gatlinburg is the perfect place to unwind. To help you make the most of your next vacation, Visit My Smokies has put together five reasons you will love staying at Pittman Center cabins.

1. Relaxing Atmosphere

Pittman Center offers one of the most idyllic locations in Sevier County. Situated off of the East Parkway, this charming town is about 15 minutes away from the heart of Gatlinburg. When you stay at a cabin in Pittman Center, you will enjoy the best of both worlds: proximity to all of the fun on The Strip but enough distance from the hustle and bustle of the Parkway to feel relaxed.

2. Near the Greenbrier Entrance to the National ParkBeautiful view of the Little Pigeon River in Greenbrier in the Smoky Mountains.

One of Pittman Center’s best features is its entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park at Greenbrier. This breathtaking section of the park is famous for its spring wildflowers, which you can see along the Porters Creek Trail and the Ramsey Cascades Trail. Located beside the Little Pigeon River, Greenbrier is a wonderful place for a scenic picnic in the forest. If you decide to enjoy lunch at Greenbrier, we recommend picking up some food from Hungry Bear BBQ #1, which is situated right after Greenbrier Road.

3. Authentic Smoky Mountain Experience

While hotels are commonplace in most vacation destinations, staying at a cabin is a unique East Tennessee experience. Log cabins have been a fixture of life in the Smoky Mountains for over 200 years! The Pittman Center cabins available for rent today carry on this mountain tradition.

Of course, cabins have come a long way since the early 1800s! The modern cabin rentals in Pittman Center feature a variety of state-of-the-art amenities, such as hot tubs, movie theater rooms, game rooms, and fully furnished kitchens.

4. Breathtaking Natural Beauty

When you stay at one of the Pittman Center TN cabin rentals, you will be immersed in the area’s natural beauty. There is nothing better than sitting out on your cabin’s deck (or soaking in the hot tub) and taking in the stunning scenery all around you. Whether you’re in search of wooded views or mountain vistas, you are sure to find a picturesque cabin that suits your fancy.
