Family Vacations & Trips with Friends
After piling everyone in the cars and heading to the Smokies, it’s always nice to have a private home waiting for you when you arrive. The instant you pull up the private driveway to your secluded Pigeon Forge cabin, you’ll feel right at home. Step into the cozy living area, where you can leave your bags on the hardwood floor and head straight to the comfy couch for a rest. And while the gang explores the rest of your spacious cabin, hop on the complimentary Wi-Fi to check out local events on our Cabins for YOU blog.
Once bedrooms are chosen, grab a seat in a rocking chair on the back deck and take in the fresh Smoky Mountain air and stunning views. Kids too excited to sit? Send them to the fully loaded rec room, with game tables, arcade units, a flatscreen TV, and more. Better yet, gather everyone in the home theater for an action flick with surround sound, theater-style seating, and huge bowls of buttery popcorn from the wet bar. Worried about fights over the remote? Don’t be as each bedroom comes with its own TV.
In the mornings, prepare breakfast with your pals in the fully equipped kitchen and enjoy quality time together in the dining area, perfect not only for meals but also fun card and board games with the whole crew or arts and crafts with the little ones. And when the swimsuits are on and the floaties are ready, splash around in the resort’s community pool and let the kids play on the jungle gym before heading back to the cabin for hot showers, bedtime stories, chats on the sofa, midnight snacks, and classic novels by a crackling fire.
When planning team-building trips, family reunions, extravagant weddings, church retreats, business gatherings, or sports adventures, large-group lodges in Pigeon Forge are the way to go! Instead of separating everyone into small spaces every evening with nothing to do, keep the connections growing with friendly chats in large living spaces, game tournaments in multiple rec rooms, splashes at the private indoor pool, movie nights in the home theater, and cool drinks with mountain views on the spacious decks. Plus, you’ll have plenty of space to host meetings or just hang out and enjoy each other’s company.
With large groups, plenty of food is key to a successful trip, and a large fully equipped kitchen (including pots and pans, dishware, mugs, and more) with double the appliances and a huge dining area is great for a hearty feast! Whip up homemade meals, store restaurant leftovers, and dine together with ease. You can even toss burgers on the grill and flip on upbeat music for the biggest and grooviest barbecue party of the year!
When bedtime rolls around, split off for a bit of privacy in the bedrooms, from multiple master suites with fireplaces, king-size beds, and private bathrooms to kid havens with video game systems, twin and full bunks, and fun décor. Not ready to hit the hay? Stay up for cocktails under the night sky or a soothing hot tub soak with a comedy show on the outdoor TV.
Why Choose a Cabin?
When you think of a hotel or motel, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Nine times out of ten, the answer is simply a place to bathe and sleep. Most people don’t envision all the conveniences of home, such as a washer and dryer, high-speed wireless internet, or communal areas, let alone entertaining and relaxing amenities. That’s where cabin rentals come in. Cabins are more than places to go when you’re ready for bed — they’re true mountain homes that provide a welcoming atmosphere, peace of mind, comfort, privacy, entertainment, relaxation, and best of all, precious memories. Break tradition and exchange run-of-the-mill hotels and motels for an unforgettable cabin experience in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!
Why is a cabin unique from a hotel?
Start with ease of checking in - with no office to stop by and no keys to keep up with! You'll have a unique key code for easy entry to your cabin. You’ll also have a lot more space than in a hotel room. Our cabins range from 1 to 14 bedrooms, sleeping anywhere from 2 to 50+ guests! Many bedrooms feature private baths, and all our cabins have great shared spaces like living rooms, full kitchens, dining tables, and outdoor areas. Some even have home theaters, private indoor pools, rec rooms with game tables, and multiple decks.
A vacation is supposed to be a relaxing and rejuvenating (and fun!) time, so allow everyone to enjoy the luxury and peace of their own private space. You can hang out with family and friends during the day and have your own place to unwind at night. And amenities such as bedside fireplaces and jetted tubs in some master suites will make your stay in the Smoky Mountains extra special!
Won’t a cabin be more expensive?
Surprisingly, that’s often not the case. While prices vary throughout the year, many hotels run $100+ per night, and that’s just for 1 room. At Cabins for YOU, we have cabins sized for almost any vacation, from honeymoons to retreats. We have budget-friendly cabins starting at under $100 a night, and even those that have a higher per-night rate have more bedrooms and space — meaning you can split the cost between multiple people!
Staying in a cabin with a fully equipped kitchen also means you can cut back on food costs by doing some of your own cooking in the cabin. Stop by the Gatlinburg Farmers Market or local grocery store and stock your cabin with ingredients to make your own meals. In the cabin, you’ll have all the tools you need, from dishes and glassware to an oven and full-size refrigerator!
Cabins can also save on entertainment costs, with amenities like private indoor pools (free summer fun), home movie theaters (no more $10 popcorn), and rec rooms with pool and foosball, shuffleboard and air hockey, arcade games, and more! You could spend an entire vacation in Pigeon Forge without even leaving the cabin!
