Winter is a great time to visit the Smoky Mountains. You can have outdoor winter fun by exploring hiking trails, tubing down snowy hills, and skiing down the slopes. Or, you can stay warm by visiting indoor attractions such as museums, dinner shows, and shops. When your adventure ends for the day, you need a cozy place to retreat to so you can warm up and reenergize before doing it again the next day. Here are a few cabin amenities that will add extra warmth, relaxation, and fun to your Smoky Mountain winter vacation.
At the end of a long day out in the cold, nothing beats warming up in front of a cozy fireplace. If you’re planning a Smoky Mountain winter vacation, you need to stay in a cabin with a fireplace. You can curl up on the couch in front of the fireplace to watch your favorite movie or relax with your favorite book and a cup of hot chocolate. Not only does the fireplace keep you warm, but it also creates a relaxing atmosphere to help you unwind after an exciting day in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and the Smoky Mountains.
Staying at a cabin with a hot tub gives you another way to warm up and unwind. The warm water and jets will soothe sore muscles after a day of hiking in the mountains and help you calm down for a restful night of sleep. A hot tub is also a great way to enjoy being outdoors to take in the Smoky Mountain winter views without getting too cold. You can breathe in the fresh air while soaking in the warm water as you let your cares melt away.
In winter, one of the best indoor activities is snuggling up under a blanket watching your favorite movies. Spend your Smoky Mountain winter vacation at a cabin with a theater room so you can fully enjoy your time indoors on a cold winter night. These theater rooms may have theater-style seats, sofas, or recliners to give you a comfortable viewing experience. You’ll have all the comforts of watching a movie in a theater without needing to leave the warmth of your cabin or buy a ticket. The theater rooms have large screens and sound systems to complete the experience.
Most outdoor pools close during the winter months, but when you stay at a cabin with an indoor pool, you can splash around all year long. This is a great amenity for your Smoky Mountain winter vacation because it adds another way to have fun and relax in the privacy and comfort of your cabin rental. These indoor pools are heated, so you’ll be able to take a dip even when the weather outside is frightful. This is a great way to save some money during your vacation because you won’t need to buy a bunch of attraction tickets to fill the day with fun. Instead, you can go back to your cabin and spend a couple of hours splashing around in the indoor heated pool to fill some time.
A game room is a great addition to your Smoky Mountain winter vacation. This amenity can be found in most of our cabin rentals. These cabin game rooms can include a variety of games, from table games like pool and air hockey to wall games like darts. A lot of these cabins also have arcade-style games such as Pac-Man and even board games that the whole family can play together. Playing games together will help bring you all closer together during your vacation and create great memories with one another that you’ll likely never forget.
Unforgettable memories can be made around an outdoor fire pit during your Smoky Mountain winter vacation. On a chilly night, the heat of the fire will keep everyone warm as you gather around it. You can tell stories and share your favorite memories from the vacation so far. Everyone will love roasting marshmallows on the open flames to make tasty s’mores. This is another great way to bask in the fresh mountain air without getting too cold during winter days or nights.
One of the best cabin amenities you’re sure to enjoy is spectacular mountain views. Stay at a cabin with mountain views this winter so you can enjoy everything the Smoky Mountains have to offer. You’ll love being surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery that can be seen from both inside and outside the cabin. You can enjoy a meal indoors with the mountains as a backdrop through the window, or sip on your morning coffee out on the deck while watching the sun rise. End your day in the hot tub watching the sun set behind the mountains. Any activity you do will be even better when you do it with a view of the mountains. A cabin with mountain views is the perfect addition to your Smoky Mountain winter vacation.
These are some of the best amenities at our cabins that will keep you warm and add extra comfort and fun to your Smoky Mountain winter vacation. Take a look at our Smoky Mountain cabins and start planning your next vacation today!
