Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains are one of the most popular destinations in the Southeast for church retreats. Located just a day’s drive from 60% of the nation’s population, the cities of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN offer breathtaking natural beauty and a welcoming atmosphere for religious groups.

When you come to the Smokies with your church group, a cabin is the perfect place to stay. To help you make the most of your trip, Top Cabin Rentals has put together five reasons your group will love our large cabins in the Smoky Mountains.

1. Room for Everyone

Here at Top Cabin Rentals, we offer a great selection of 5 – 8 bedroom cabins that are ideal for church retreats. With room for 14 – 24 guests, these spacious properties can accommodate most groups. Instead of feeling isolated in separate hotel rooms, your entire party will be able to stay together in your very own home away from home in the Smokies.

2. Peace and QuietBeautiful views from the deck of the Splash Mansion cabin in the Smoky Mountains.

For your church retreat, you will want lodging that offers a peaceful atmosphere for study, contemplation, and prayer. Our large cabins are tucked away in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Surrounded by beautiful forested views and mountain vistas, your cabin will feel like a world unto itself.

3. Near Destinations in Town

While our large cabins in the Smoky Mountains offer the serenity you desire, they are also just a short drive away from all of the things to see and do in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Church groups will find a number of attractions with Christian themes in town. Here are a few of the area’s best destinations for religious retreats:

  • Christ in the Smokies Museum and Gardens tells the story of Jesus using life-size figures, artistic lighting, stirring music, and special effects.
  • Biblical Times Dinner Theater produces wonderful shows that include Christian music, live action retellings of stories from the Bible, and a delicious seven item feast.
  • In addition to its fun roller coasters and rides, Dollywood is home to the Kingdom Heirs, an award-winning Southern gospel quartet, and the Southern Gospel Hall of Fame. During the month of October, the theme park also hosts a Southern Gospel Jubilee with over 300 free concerts from some of the genre’s biggest stars.

4. Ideal for Group Meals

All of our cabins come with fully furnished kitchens, so you can easily whip up a tasty meal for your group to enjoy. Dining out while traveling can add up quickly, so eating some of your meals right in your cabin will save you a lot of money. There are a number of supermarkets in the area where you can pick up all of the ingredients you need for dinner.
