Why Cabins Beat Hotels for Business Travelers
While families vacationing in the Smokies make up the majority of our guests, we want you to know that, at Cabins For You, our cabins are the right choice even if you aren’t traveling for pleasure. And with Gatlinburg’s large convention center, the central location of the Smokies, and easy access to hundreds of restaurants and attractions, it’s no wonder businesses choose Gatlinburg for company-wide meetings and retreats.
So whether you’re staying on your own, with your family, or with a large group of coworkers, be sure to book your stay at a Gatlinburg cabin today. Need more incentive? Check out these 5 reasons cabins beat hotels for the business traveler in the Smokies.
- Cabins provide plenty of room.
If your business trip to the Smokies involves company meetings and presentations, you’re going to need plenty of space. Even a small group of coworkers needs table space and comfortable seating to make it through an hours-long presentation with ease. In our large group cabin rentals, you’ll find large, cozy living rooms and dining tables where you can spread out and stay comfortable throughout the day.
With large couches, comfy chairs, ceiling fans, end tables, reading lamps, and (often) large windows overlooking the beautiful Smoky Mountains, our cabins’ living rooms are far more comfortable than any hotel board room, and the best part is, they’re conveniently located inside your Gatlinburg cabin!
If you’re traveling on your own, you’ll have plenty of different places to work throughout the cabin without being crammed into an uncomfortable corner of a hotel room. You can even get some work done while out on the deck, if you can peel your eyes away from the gorgeous views!
- Cabins provide the amenities you need.
For groups planning large-group presentations in the Smokies, you’ll likely need special equipment like big screen TVs, DVD players, and high speed wireless. At Cabins For You, you’ll find all three of these amenities in most of our Gatlinburg cabins, at no extra cost like in a hotel space. You can also ask our reservation specialists about cabins with specific amenities like smart TVs, Blu-ray players, CD players, and wireless internet.
What else do our cabins offer? When you’re ready for a quick break during the day, take advantage of the coffee maker and microwave in the kitchen. Or you can step out onto a rocking chair porch for some fresh air. It’s amenities like these that make all the difference in your business getaway to Gatlinburg!
- Cabins provide a space for company meals.
When it’s time to break for lunch, there’s no need to leave the site when you stay in one of our Gatlinburg cabins. That’s because we offer full-size kitchens, where you can set out a selection of deli meats, bread, cheeses, and condiments for a quick lunch that saves a ton of money and time. Or you can have lunch catered and brought to the cabin by popular restaurants in the Gatlinburg area. Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Q and Calhoun’s are both great choices that offer catering to group events.
And when it comes to company meals, our cabins not only provide plenty of options, but also plenty of room to spread out. Enjoy eating in the dining room or even on the porch (look for a cabin comes with patio tables and/or rocking chairs). You’ll have amazing views, privacy, and fuss-free parking when you plan company meals at your Gatlinburg cabin!
- Cabins are more economical than individual hotel rooms.
When you book a hotel room in the Gatlinburg area, you can spend anywhere from $120 to $200 per room per night. And this doesn’t include the cost of renting a large space for meetings, renting a private dining hall, or taking your group out for a midday meal. But when you stay in one of our large-group cabins, you’ll have access to all three of these spaces in one convenient location.
You’ll have your dining area and kitchen, your meeting space, and your private bedrooms all inside your Gatlinburg cabin for around $150 per room. Not only is this more economical when it comes to the money you would spend on staying in the Gatlinburg area, but it’s also easier on your gas tank. You won’t be wasting time and money driving from the hotel to your meeting facility. You can also save a ton of money by eating in the cabin using the available appliances in your full-size kitchen!
And if you’re an individual business traveler, you’ll still appreciate that money-saving option paired with the comfort of having your own private space to work. You won’t have to worry about the noise of the hotel rooms next to you when you work in your own cabin.
- Cabins are way more fun!
Even if you’re coming to the Smoky Mountains to work, we don’t think your stay should be all work and no play! So book your stay at one of our Gatlinburg cabins, and you’ll have so much more than comfortable bedrooms, a convenient kitchen, and a spacious living room. You’ll also have a variety of entertaining amenities when it’s time to put away your laptop and have some fun!
Some of the amenities our cabins have to offer include a variety of game tables, outdoor hot tubs, outdoor fire pits, and even private indoor pools! We also have cabins that are ideally located within miles of downtown Gatlinburg, providing access to dozens of group attractions like Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies and Ober Gatlinburg—both of which are part of our Cabins For You Partner Program. Ask our reservation specialists for more information about discounts available within this program and about our long list of cabin amenities. We’ll help you find the cabin that works best for your business trip this year!
