There are a ton of benefits to taking a Smoky Mountain vacation. Not only does this give you a chance to relax, but it also helps reduce stress levels and give you time to enjoy friends and family.
There are even more benefits to visitors who choose to spend their vacation inside one of our Wears Valley cabin rentals. Unlike other areas where we have cabins, the Wears Valley community offers a truly unique vacation experience that every family will enjoy.
Here’s what makes our Wears Valley cabins great for vacation:
1. Peaceful Atmosphere – No Hustle and Bustle
One of the biggest reasons family choose to vacation in Wears Valley is because of the quiet and peaceful atmosphere. What better place to spend your vacation than in what is considered to be one of the most relaxing communities in the area?
Unlike Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Wears Valley is not packed full of attractions and restaurants. Instead, they pride themselves on the rolling mountain views and quiet environment. That also means that there is a lot less traffic in Wears Valley and you don’t have to worry about any of the hustle and bustle like you’ll find when you venture out into Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.
2. Fun Smoky Mountain Attractions Nearby
There is no question that there are a ton of fun and exciting family friendly things to do in the Smoky Mountains. There are fun shows, quaint shops, thrilling attractions and much more for guests to enjoy.
Visitors choosing to stay inside a Wears Valley cabin rental will enjoy being just a short drive away from all these exciting things to do without having to sacrifice the peace and quiet expected with a Smoky Mountain vacation. Really, when you stay in Wears Valley, you get the best of both worlds. You can retreat to the quiet Smoky Mountain side and when you want to explore, you can head out to Pigeon Forge.
3. Next Door to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park
In addition to the fun and exciting attractions that are located near our Wears Valley cabin rentals, guests staying here will also enjoy being next door to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Unlike when you travel through Gatlinburg to get to the park, in Wears Valley visitors will find little traffic at their “secret” entrance to the park. Because Gatlinburg is a main entrance for families traveling to the park, the roads can easily become congested. However, families choosing to pass through the Wears Valley entrance will enjoy all the same scenic views without having to worry about any traffic – it’s like having a personal, secret entrance to the park.
4. Great Restaurants Right Around the Corner
Last, but not least, families staying in one of our Wears Valley cabin rentals will love the variety of Smoky Mountain restaurants that are located just a short drive away. These restaurants make it so you and your family can still enjoy a delicious family meal together without having to worry about cooking or cleaning up afterwards.
