Not only are vacations fun and exciting, but we could make the argument that they are a necessary part of life! You work hard during your daily life, and it is important to take a few days to relax, unwind and recharge your batteries. There’s no better place in the world to enjoy some peace and quiet than the Great Smoky Mountains, and we’ve put together a list of the top 4 ways you will benefit from a Smoky Mountain trip!

1. Relax and Unwind

Like we mentioned above, it is absolutely essential to take a break from reality every once in awhile and spend a few days relaxing to the max. Taking time to care for yourself will make you more energized and motivated during your day-to-day routines, and our Smoky Mountain cabins are the best place to enjoy a mountain retreat!

Imagine getting a long night of sleep in a comfortable king size bed and then waking up to the sun slowly rising over the mountains. You’ll have unobstructed views of the sunrise while you sip coffee or tea on your cabin’s covered porch, and then at night you’ll get to end the day by soaking away any remaining stress in your secluded, bubbling hot tub. Throughout the day, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views from every single room in your cabin! There’s simply not a more relaxing way to take in 360 degree views of the scenery around you.

2. Experience New ThingsThe Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show in the Smoky Mountains.

Another way you will benefit from a Smoky Mountain trip is by going to attractions and events that you’ve never before experienced. Our Smoky Mountain cabins are near both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, meaning your chances for checking out something new are doubled!
