Why rent a cabin or chalet?

When planning a vacation to the Great Smoky Mountains, there is a lot to consider. What will your budget be? What attractions, events, or activities do you want to check out? Do you want to stay in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg? Will you drive or fly? How will you get around once you arrive in town – car or trolley? How long will you stay? Will it be a romantic escape or a big family getaway? These are just a few of the many things that will run through your mind when you start considering your Smoky Mountain vacation. But easily the most important question you'll ask yourself is “Where will we stay?”

There are so many options for lodging in the Smokies, it can be a bit overwhelming. There are cabins and chalets, hotels, motels, and resort communities, all offering something different. Cabins and chalets offer the most perks and provide the classic mountain experience. Read on to see why should rent a cabin or chalet for your vacation to the Great Smoky Mountains! And be sure to browse our huge selection - we have everything from romantic 1-bedroom retreats to awesome group lodges! 

They're spacious.

Hotel rooms are cramped. You're often trying to find room for suitcases, hanging clothes, baby beds, and all the people in your group. If you're traveling with more than 2 or 3, you have to get multiple rooms, which may or may not be next to each other. When you're ready for breakfast or want to play games or hang out, you have to settle for the “dining area” downstairs and the lobby or an uninviting common area - not to mention planning it all by phone or knocking on hotel doors. With cabins and chalets, your whole group (even up to more than 50 guests!) can stay together and enjoy tons of quality time. Our beautiful cabins in both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have tons of space to unwind, relax, play, and spread out. They offer cozy living areas, fun rec rooms, and room for families and friends to vacation together. Our cabins and chalets also have fully equipped kitchens, so you can whip up meals and snacks as you enjoy each other's company.

They feel like home.

From detailed woodwork and unique themes to charming décor and the amenities you'd find at home, our cabins and chalets feel just like home. Forget cold, uninviting hotel rooms and enjoy the comfort of a beautiful Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge cabin. You can curl up by wood-burning, gas, or electric fireplaces, take advantage of the washer and dryer units, use the high-speed wireless internet, or spend time in the fully equipped kitchens and spacious dining areas. The bedrooms offer comfortable bedding, and many have jetted tubs and TVs in the room! That's quite an improvement from a generic hotel room!

They offer something for everyone.

At Cabins For You, we have a huge variety of cabins and chalets to meet almost any need. You can choose cabins and chalets in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, either near downtown, by the water, or high up in the mountains. You can go for luxury or watch your wallet with our budget-friendly cabins. We even have cabins ranging from cozy one bedrooms to large group lodges. So whether you're getting away for a romantic weekend or looking for a place for a family reunion or church retreat, cabins and chalets can accommodate! Of course, cabins and chalets also offer amenities you wouldn't find at hotels. Our cabins have lots of amenities to choose from, including indoor jetted tubs, outdoor hot tubs, home theaters, game tables, private indoor pools, pool access, big screen TVs, fireplaces, Wi-Fi, full kitchens, great views, grills, fireplaces, and much, much more – really something for everyone!

They're comfortable.

Comfort is of the utmost importance when it comes to vacationing. Whether you stay for a weekend or multiple weeks, you want to feel comfortable and relaxed. After busy days in town, it's great to have a cozy place to come back to. With cozy beds and comfortable furniture, cabins and chalets are just what you want. You'll also find more spacious and welcoming kitchens, bathrooms, and outdoor spaces you wouldn't have in a hotel room.

They're convenient.

Many of our cabins and chalets are located near downtown Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, making it easy to drive into town for dining, shopping, and entertainment. Some are even within walking distance! Along with convenient locations, the amenities are convenient. Washers and dryers, internet access, and full kitchens are much-appreciated amenities when you seek convenience.

They're budget friendly.

While staying in a private cabin may sound like it would be more expensive, getting a shared space and splitting the cost is actually much more cost-effective than many hotels. And when you consider the benefits - shared spaces, games, high-end amenities, full kitchens and dining areas, outdoor spaces - you really can't beat booking a cabin or chalet instead of a hotel. Plus, at Cabins for YOU, we actually have budget-friendly options for those wanting to save. BONUS: Our Cabins for YOU partner program gives you discounts on area attractions when you stay with us! Think dinner shows, ziplines, top family-friendly attractions, and more! 

They're great for special occasions.

Cabins and chalets provide the perfect atmosphere for any special occasion or trip. Some are large enough to accommodate weddings, and others are great for family reunions, birthday parties, girls' weekends, Mother's Day trips, and more. We also have cozy cabins that are perfect for honeymoons, where you'll find romantic amenities. Make that special day even more special with a stay in a luxurious cabin with fantastic views of the Great Smoky Mountains!
