Family eating outside at a picnic table

If you’ve been thinking about planning a family or friend reunion, the Great Smoky Mountains are the perfect place to gather with all your loved ones! Life gets busy, and months or even years fly by at the speed of light. This makes it even more important to take time out of your hectic schedule to catch up with your favorite people, and we have 3 tips to help you plan the ultimate reunion at our Gatlinburg TN vacation rentals!

1. Reach Out to Loved Ones a Year in AdvanceSmoky Mountains

Our first important tip is that you should contact the people you’d like to invite at least one year in advance. This will give you an idea of who is interested and will give you plenty of time to determine how many people you need to plan housing for. Getting in touch with people early will also give them the opportunity to get excited and maybe even help you plan! Having a team to help you plan for food, entertainment and accommodations can come in very handy.

Once you’ve determined who is interested in coming to your reunion, you can send out lists of Gatlinburg TN attractions and take a survey of what everyone wants to experience during their weekend in the mountains! This is a fun way to plan the weekend and make sure everyone feels included.

The next tip to planning the perfect reunion at our Gatlinburg TN vacation rentals is to look through all of our wonderful cabin options and choose the perfect one to house all your family and friends.

For instance, if it turns out that you’ll only be having a small group of people join you for your fun weekend away, you should check out our selection of 3 bedroom cabins in Gatlinburg. These mountain homes are the perfect size for a smaller group to spread out and relax, but it’s not so big that you’ll go the whole weekend without seeing each other!

If you get a large number of people interested in the reunion, you’ll want to look through our large group cabins. Sleeping up to 25 people, these cabins are large enough for anyone and everyone, and with hot tubs, game rooms, theater rooms and stunning mountain views, everyone in your group will absolutely love spending the weekend in the cabin!
