Planning Mother’s Day Ideas

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, but even if you’ve waited until now, it’s not too late to plan a special Smoky Mountain getaway for the moms in your life. In fact, who deserves such a retreat more? These hard-working, self-sacrificing women have given their all to our families. It’s time to treat them right this Mother’s Day by bringing them to the Smokies!

Romantic Weekend Away

If you’re planning a romantic Mother’s Day weekend away, then check out these 1-2 bedroom cabins located in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Cabins like Lasting Impressions, with an outdoor hot tub and king-size bed, are sure to impress the woman in your life. You might also enjoy the one-of-a-kind mountain view at Camp David, where you’ll not only enjoy an indoor jetted tub but also pool access and a rocking chair porch.

Both of these cabins are located close to downtown—Lasting Impressions is less than three miles from downtown Gatlinburg, and Camp David is a short drive from Pigeon Forge. So you won’t have to go too far to enjoy a romantic dinner at The Melting Pot or Greenbrier Restaurant.

To make your date night extra special, surprise her with an after-dinner treat. Perhaps she’ll like an in-cabin massage or a special gift basket with aromatic candles and gourmet chocolate. Check out all our gift basket options so you can make her Mother’s Day weekend in the Smokies a getaway she’ll never forget!

Celebration with the Family

If you can’t get away from the kids for Mother’s Day weekend, no problem! We’ve got cabins perfect for families of all sizes. Many of our 1-2 bedroom cabins will sleep four to six guests, but if you need even more space than that, check out cabins like Lakeside Mountain Hideaway in Pigeon Forge.

This cabin has three bedrooms, comfortably accommodating eight guests. You’ll also enjoy private lake access with a full dock, an outdoor hot tub, and a stone fireplace—a perfect place to gather the family and say thank you to Mom for all that she has done throughout the year! Another great cabin for larger families is Siesta Ridge, located in Gatlinburg.

Finding ways to celebrate Mother’s Day as a family in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge will take no effort at all. For outdoor fun in Gatlinburg, check out the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you can enjoy a family hike and picnic. Invite the kids to pitch in on making your lunchtime meal—Mom will be thrilled!

You’ll also find plenty of indoor fun in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The Dixie Stampede is a great choice for a family outing. Other fun places to visit include Magic Beyond Belief, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, and The Smoky Mountain Opry. Just be sure to consult with Mom before you make your plans. Remember, this weekend is about her, not the kids!

With that in mind, we bet there’s at least one thing she’ll want to do while she’s in the Smokies, and that’s shop! With speciality shops, jewelry shops, outlet shops, so much more, she’ll think you brought her to shopper’s paradise!

One last thing we want you to know is several Smoky Mountain restaurants offer special gifts and surprises on Mother’s Day. For instance, Alamo Steakhouse has traditionally offered a free filet to all moms as a gesture of appreciation, and Shoney’s Restaurant plans to treat moms to a delicious slice of strawberry pie. The Old Mill Restaurant has confirmed they will have a special gift for all moms this Mother’s Day. Keep these options in mind as you plan your special weekend away. She’s most definitely earned it!
