Things To Think About

The last thing that anyone would want to consider when renting one of our Gatlinburg cabins is what to do during an emergency event. At any other time of the year, emergency phone calls made to our reservation office are no big deal. During holiday seasons, the handling of emergency events for Cabins For You has a slightly different protocol. What we all must remember, is that Christmas, thanksgiving, and 4th of July are holidays and special times for our workers as well.

Unfortunately, while renting one of our Gatlinburg cabins, not all unplanned circumstances are emergencies. While we at Cabins For You strive to improve that quality of our customers stay, we still must keep our workers interest at hand. If there is an emergency during a major holiday we will still answer emergency phone calls and provide services if they are true emergencies. For instance, these emergencies include: Broken water pipes, frozen water pipes or no running water, no heat, stove or refrigerator not working. If there is any life threatening emergency, call 911 immediately. Things that are not emergencies include: Hot tub not heating, broken microwave, remote control not working, light bulbs missing, cable not working, etc… Despite how hard we try to prevent power outages, this is one circumstance (emergency) that we have no control over. We understand how disappointing this event might be, but we are at the mercy of the power companies in Gatlinburg TN. We will however call the power company for you if this unfortunate event happens during your stay.

During the Holiday season, we ask that we all (including Cabins For You) stay understanding and forgiving because things break and malfunction. What we can promise, is that if you have an emergency, we will do our best to fix or rectify the situation regardless of time or day.

Cabin during Christmas.

During this Christmas break, if you are still looking for a quick vacation, then think about heading to Gatlinburg Tennessee. With Gatlinburg TN being within driving distance of 2/3rds of the United States and airplane tickets being very pricey and hard to come by at late notice, Gatlinburg sounds like an easy choice for a quick retreat. Gatlinburg is very accessible and has many accommodations. Most would prefer Gatlinburg cabins, but some still might like to stay in a hotel or motel.
By reasonable estimations, there are thousands of Gatlinburg cabins in Gatlinburg TN ranging from simple, basic cabins to very luxurious Gatlinburg cabins. Almost all cabins come with a hot tub and some sort of game table. The most popular game tables kept in cabins are pool tables, foosball tables and air hockey tables. In some of the more luxurious Gatlinburg cabins, you will find some arcade games offering up to 100 games. A few cabins have inground pools which is great for the kids. All cabins come will fully equipped kitchens and a large portion of cabins in Gatlinburg come with fireplaces (wood burning/gas).
For those who are still interested in a quick retreat, Gatlinburg seems more like an obvious choice than ever.

Gifts For A Gatlinburg Traveler

Like most people (including us at Cabins For You), at times it can be difficult for our loved ones and friends to find gifts that we might like, want or need. We want the newest, nicest and best items available on the market. Like most new items, they can be very expensive and regardless of high price tag, they might be quite useless.

With Christmas around the corner, we at Cabins For You have decided to compose a list of gift ideas for the traveler who loves to visit Gatlinburg Tennessee. Although these gift ideas revolve around vacationing in Gatlinburg and renting Gatlinburg cabins, we believe that even the most novice travelers to Gatlinburg will enjoy a few of these ideas. These Gatlinburg gift ideas range from a watch to a hiking travel bag.

1. Nice, Comfortable Pair of Shoes – In Gatlinburg Tennessee, whether you are in one of our rentals in Gatlinburg or whether you are in a motel in downtown Gatlinburg, you will mostly likely spend a large portion of your trip walking around the city. Once your feet start hurting you can expect your day in the city to go down hill. It would very tough to enjoy the attractions of Gatlinburg with sore feet. This might be the most important item.

2. A Watch – Despite our desire to have a Rolex watch, I am not sure that this would serve its purpose while on vacation in Gatlinburg. Although it will look nice, when you are in the middle of a hike, how much will that $3,000 watch help you? The most useful watch would be a watch that glows in the dark, has an alarm and is very durable. Uses included:

  • Walking the strip in downtown Gatlinburg TN (day/night)
  • Hiking on trails in Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains
  • Setting reminders and keeping track of dates

3. Mp3 Player – This is an excellent gift idea if the receiver enjoys spending a lot of time alone. There are plenty of things that someone might want to do alone while visiting Gatlinburg or one of our secluded Gatlinburg cabins. Uses include:

  • Hiking
  • Shopping at the outlet malls

4. GPS Navigation Device - This gift is perfect for any person or couple who likes to hike and venture all over with reckless abandon. Most navigation devises can keep you in-touch with reality and will help you find your way back to civilization. Also, if you tend to do a lot of traveling in unknown areas, this will help you find street directions and other Points Of Interest (POI). Depending on the make and model, most of our Gatlinburg cabins and Gatlinburg locations will be accessible through the GPS.

5. Travel Guide – Nothing makes a travel enthusiast more excited than reading about their favorite travel spots. There are plenty of magazines and guides that feature articles over Gatlinburg Tennessee and its cabins.

If you have any question, or might like other gift ideas, please call one of our reservation specialists at 1.800.684.7865.
