If going to a crowded party doesn’t sound like a lot of fun for your New Year’s Eve celebration, then you need to getaway to the Great Smoky Mountains. This year, try ringing in the new year the right way–in the comfort of a Gatlinburg cabin rental.

1. Choose the Perfect Gatlinburg Cabin

Top Cabin Rentals has a great selection of cabin rentals throughout the Smokies. Many of the cabins have perfect amenities to help create an awesome New Year’s Eve in Gatlinburg. Featuring amenities like soothing hot tubs and exciting game rooms, you will have plenty of great ways to celebrate the last few hours of 2013.

2. Prepare a Menu

In each of the Gatlinburg cabins, you’ll find that there are fully-equipped kitchens. Each of the kitchens comes with a basic set of dishes, including plates, bowls, silverware and basic pots and pans. If you want to make cleanup a breeze, it helps to pack disposable items for cooking and serving. If you plan to cook a 3-course meal, you may want to pack some extra dishes.

3. Plan the Countdown to Midnight

If you have kids, you probably know that they usually get anxious for the countdown to midnight. Prepare for board games, card games and other activities to keep your family and friends occupied for the hours that lead up to the new year. It may even be a good idea to rent one of the Gatlinburg cabins with a pool table.

To ensure you have a great place to stay while you are in the Smokies, you’ll want to go ahead and start planning your stay. Book your cabin as early as possible! Give us a call to speak with our vacation specialists about spending New Year’s Eve in Gatlinburg!
