When people think of vacationing in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, they tend to picture bringing the whole family. While that is always a great idea, East Tennessee also makes an excellent getaway for couples! That’s especially true when you choose one of our romantic Smoky Mountain cabins for your retreat. Hearthside has put together seven activities you can do with your sweetheart to make this an extra special vacation:
1. Spend Some Quiet Moments
With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, opportunities to enjoy some peaceful time together can be rare. That’s not true at our romantic Smoky Mountain cabins. Your days will be filled with quiet moments that are meant to be shared. You’ll be surprised to find that these moments are some of the most memorable of your stay.
2. Relax in a Jacuzzi or Hot Tub
Most people aren’t fortunate enough to have a Jacuzzi in their master bedroom at home. That’s why Hearthside offers many cabins that come with a private indoor whirlpool tub. If you want to enjoy even more relaxation, you will find a delightful hot tub on your cabin’s balcony. It’s the best of both worlds!
Not everyone is aware of this, but the Smoky Mountain area boasts a number of spectacular wineries. Visiting a few of them may be the highlight of your trip! Be sure to buy a few bottles to bring home, but also reserve a few to be enjoyed in your cabin. There’s nothing that compares with relaxing on your porch in an old-fashioned rocking chair with a glass of your favorite new wine in your hand. It makes for a special memory that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
4. Prepare a Romantic Meal
Do you and your sweetie love to cook? If so, our cabins are for you! Each one features a gourmet kitchen that’s complete with everything you need to prepare fantastic meals. Whether it’s an intimate dinner, or breakfast in bed, preparing romantic meals is a dream in these kitchens. Plus, the Gatlinburg Farmers Market and other local groceries are great for picking up wonderful fresh produce.
5. Curl Up with a Movie
At home, it’s not always easy to schedule a cozy movie night, but it will be one of the top items on your list of things to do when you spend your vacation in the Smokies. Our cabins with a home theater room provide you with the perfect excuse to enjoy Hollywood’s latest releases or a classic from the golden age of cinema. Just make a bowl of popcorn, uncork a bottle of champagne, and you’re ready for a romantic movie night!
6. Make the Most of Your Fireplace
Many of our cabins are equipped with at least one efficient gas burning fireplace. With just the flick of a switch you have access to an essential component of any romantic evening. Now all you need are some chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle from one of the area’s excellent wineries!
Let your loved one call the shots for an entire day of your stay. Better yet, throw in a few surprises like his and hers massages. The two of you will have a fantastic time wandering the trails outside your cabin or dipping your feet into a nearby creek. Challenge each other to a game of pool or relax the afternoon away on your porch swing. With romantic Smoky Mountain cabins, the possibilities are endless.
