Going swimming is a classic part of any summer vacation. However, this fun activity isn’t just for the warm weather months! When you stay at one of our Smoky Mountain cabins with indoor pools, you’ll be able to enjoy a dip in the water all year long. Read on to learn about the top five perks of vacationing at our awesome swimming pool cabins.

1. The Perfect Temperature

The indoor pools at our cabins are heated, so guests will be nice and comfortable when they go for a swim. This feature is particularly attractive in late fall and winter when the weather starts to cool down in the Smokies. Nothing is better than staying warm in your private pool while watching the snow fall outside your window. Our cabins with indoor pools are always popular among guests planning a Christmas escape in the mountains.

2. Fun for the Kids

Guests at our Smoky Mountain cabins with indoor pools will never have to worry about keeping their children occupied! Your kids will love having their own private pool on vacation. Whenever there is downtime between activities in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, your little ones can head down to the pool to splash around, race each other, play Marco Polo, or just relax in the water. The pools in our cabins are shallow and kid-friendly, but parents will still want to keep a watchful eye on young children as they enjoy the pool.

3. Avoid the CrowdsThe indoor pool at the Bear Splash cabin in the Smoky Mountains.

Visiting a public pool on vacation is always a bit of a gamble. You never know how many people will be there and what the atmosphere will be like. Sometimes the pool is so crowded that there is hardly any room to swim! When you have a private pool right in your cabin, all of these concerns evaporate. Avoiding the hustle and bustle of swimming at public pools is a major advantage of having your own place to swim.

4. Skip the Sunburns and Sunscreen

While being outside on a warm summer’s day can be a blast, getting sunburned is no fun at all. Needing to apply and reapply sunscreen is a major pain, especially if you have young children who don’t want to sit still. Even with sunscreen, it always seems like the sun finds the spot on your back that you happened to miss. When you stay at a cabin with an indoor pool, you don’t have to worry about getting burned. Rather than taking 15 minutes to make sure every inch of your body is covered in sunscreen, you can head right into the water to have some fun.

5. No Sitting in Wet Swimsuits

The worst part about spending the day at a public pool is invariably the drive home. Sitting in the car in your wet bathing suit is no one’s favorite activity. Guests at our cabins with indoor pools won’t have to sit around in wet clothes because they won’t have to drive anywhere! Once you finish swimming, you can walk right in the shower and change into dry clothes.
