Ready for a change in scenery? Slip away to Carefree Daze in the Gatlinburg Falls resort. Leave your stresses at home and enjoy games and relaxing spaces at this 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom cabin with space for up to 8 guests in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. A warm wood interior pairs perfectly with modern amenities and plenty of conveniences to ensure you have that classic cabin stay in the Great Smoky Mountains!

During the day, enjoy playing arcade games, having a fun family day with board games, or shooting pool between attraction hopping. You can toss some burgers on the picnic-style charcoal grill for a cookout or kick back in front of the big screen TV with DVD player to watch some movies and relax. On cool mountain nights, cozy up in front of the electric (heated) fireplace in the living room and chat with family and friends.

At night, bedding options include 2 king-size beds and 2 queen sleepers. One bedroom has its own electric (heated) fireplace, perfect for romantic evenings in. Soak in the indoor jetted tub, grab a swimsuit and soak in the outdoor hot tub, watch TV in bed, sip a drink as you enjoy the breeze from the rocking chairs, and enjoy being together in your private cabin. Carefree Daze also has a paved driveway for easier arrivals, a washer/dryer so you can pack light, and high-speed wireless internet* so you can stay connected or just browse online. And with a location in the Gatlinburg Falls resort, you’ll also have community pool access! 

Living Room
A cozy space for reading, relaxing, and chatting, the living room in Carefree Daze will have you living just like the cabin’s name implies. You’ll be unwinding in the chair, reading books on the sofa, building Legos on the coffee table with the kids, watch TV, and staying cozy in front of the electric fireplace in this welcoming space.

Just steps from the living room is the open and fully equipped kitchen, where you’ll find black appliances, plenty of counter space for prepping meals, small appliances for easy meals, and plenty of dishes, glasses, utensils, and more. Create family meals, warm up leftovers from downtown, or spend the day baking your favorite holiday goodies. The dining table is also here, with space to seat 6 guests. Sit down together for quality time, and let extra guests spill over into the nearby living room.

Rec Room
Equal parts movie spot and game room, the rec room in Carefree Daze will keep everyone entertained for hours. Two sofas flank the flatscreen TV mounted in the corner, and the coffee table is large enough for a board game or some cards (or plenty of snacks).

The cocktail-table style arcade game is fun to play, and the pool table will bring out the competitor in you. You’ll also have a table lamp, so you can read here while watching others play. The rec room also has a stand-up arcade console and a kitchenette with a sink, microwave, and mini fridge. You won’t even have to leave the rec room for snacks, drinks, and fun!

Each bedroom at this Gatlinburg cabin has a king-size bed for restful nights. In one, enjoy a flatscreen TV, dresser, ceiling fan, tree-studded views, a wall-mounted lamp, and its own fireplace! Another bedroom has a nice log bed, large windows, a flatscreen TV, a dresser, and a fun bear-themed side table with reading lamp. Each will be a welcome and cozy space when you’re ready to call it a night. There are 2 bathrooms in the cabin for your convenience, and romantic nights can end in the heart-shaped tub surrounded by red tile.

Outdoor Spaces
Fresh and views of the trees abound at Carefree Daze. Spend your relaxing days sitting in the porch swing, sipping a drink from the rocking chairs, having lunch at the picnic table, and soak in the outdoor hot tub with a privacy screen.

Local Fun

With a location in the Gatlinburg Falls – Hidden Valley resort, Carefree Daze offers community pool access for those hot summer days. And while the cabin has plenty to do, you’ll find even more fun in downtown Gatlinburg.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park
There are hundreds of miles of trails in the nation’s most-visited national park, meaning you’ll have plenty of room to stretch your legs, hike, bike, go horseback riding, picnic, and much more!

Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community
A staple in the Gatlinburg community, the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community is a collection of local artisans who showcase and sell their amazing work along an 8-mile loop. Visit the 100+ artists to see how they work and find one-of-a-kind pieces to take home.

Reviews for Carefree Daze

  • "I loved the cabin, Carefree Daze. It was nice and cozy. We really enjoyed the cabin. Love it having the pool table n arcades. "

  • "My family of sisters and I stayed at the Carefree Daze Cabin in Gatlinburg, TN. If you have not taken a trip to the Smokey Mountains, you are missing out on a totally awesome vacation. We stayed four days and we are absolutely going back."

  • "Our cabin felt just like home right from the start. It was cozy and very accommodating. We really enjoyed watching the mama bear and her 3 cubs in our front yard the first evening. We grilled a couple times outside. The hot tub was enjoyed as well. Nice beds. The only disappointment was that the drier didn't work and unfortunately the new one that was ordered didn't arrive while we were there. But we sure made use of the washer! Thank you to Cabins For You for allowing us to make this our place of stay during our vacation in the Smoky Mountains."

  • "We stayed for 2 nights in a nice cabin through cabins for you and we had a great stay. The neighbors were a bit loud but the cabin was very spacious and cozy. Had a very nice tv and sound system to watch TV and the hot tub and jacuzzi were nice to relax in. Not too far away from the main road either, so getting around wasnt too hard, but it may have been easier to map out the parking garages before leaving so we would know where to go. Wish we had stayed longer, it was a great experience. Checking in with just a keypad made me nervous at first but it was super easy and everything went the way it was supposed to. We'll definitely be going again sometime."

  • "Excellent and exceeded expectations! Perfect for easy access to the National park."

  • "Very nice and clean, great place to stay."

  • "Great cabin and wonderful service. Location close to things we wanted to do."

  • "We loved our stay at this cabin. It was the perfect getaway for our family. It is a perfect location, not far from downtown Gatlinburg and only a few minutes drive to Pigeon Forge. I would recommend this cabin to any of my friends and family."

  • "We have stayed with Cabins for You a few different times and have been super satisfied with each of our stays. The cabin has always been clean upon arrival and they even provide some goodies such as coffee grounds, dish soap, and even coupons in a nice nylon bag that you can keep. During our most recent trip, my family stayed at Carefree Daze and we had a very memorable trip. The cabin was full of amenities and games such as a pool table, hot tub, Ms. PacMan and board games. The furniture throughout the cabin were comfortable and the price wasn’t that bad for quality of cabin we stayed in. Making reservations, checking-in and the check-out process are also really easy and convenient due to their remote check-in, security codes, and check-out instructions. We definitely plan on booking another stay with Cabins for You for our next vacation in the Smokies!"

  • "The cabin was so nice and cozy. We had a wonderful stay. All the kitchen utensils you need are available; however, if you will be cooking you will need extra dishwasher soap or dish soap and garbage bags; as well as laundry soap. We did use the grill outside , it is a small. It gets very dark so maybe take those lights that you can put on your head. Overall, we had a wonderful stay!"

  • "The Carefree Daze cabin was charming and very convenient to downtown Gatlinburg. Very clean and nicely decorated."

  • "One of the best experience in customer service we’ve ever had. From the beginning of the reservation process to check out. We will definitely be using this company for other trips to the mountains. This is the second time we’ve used Cabins for you for our vacation. The cabins were clean and priced well. We had a small issue with a water leak this time and we had someone out there within an hour to check it out. They kept in contact with us through the whole process and made sure we were satisfied. The way this company conducted business should be in a playbook to be successful"

  • "The pictures online doesn’t do it justice. The cabin is beautiful! Very spacious and clean. Our girls (4 and 6) had a blast with the arcade games! They loved the cabin. We would stay in this exact one again and again."

  • "We had a great time! The house was perfect for our family. We really liked the layout with one of the bedrooms downstairs for folks who can't do stairs. My son had so much fun with the games and pool table."

  • "It was absolutely perfect! We will definitely be back! Any issues we had were solved quickly and efficiently."
