It is officially winter in the Great Smoky Mountains, and that means one thing–snow is coming! Although our area is not known to bring a ton of snowfall every year, there are sure to be a day or two where all you and your family will want to do is hang out inside your Gatlinburg winter cabin rental and stay warm.
That being said, you will want a few ideas of things to do when you are snowed in inside your Gatlinburg winter cabin rental, and that is where this post comes in. Read below to find out our favorite snowy day activities during your next Smoky Mountain vacation this season.
Relax in the Outdoor Hot Tub
Hopefully you remembered to pack your bathing suit because you will not want to miss being able to splash into fun when you are snowed in during your next Smoky Mountain vacation by taking advantage of your Gatlinburg winter cabin rental private outdoor hot tub. Not only are these tubs perfect for relaxing after a long day of exploring the Smoky Mountains, but they are also a great way to enjoy the outdoor scenery from your private deck while also staying warm.
Towels are provided at the rental, all you have to bring is your bathing suit to enjoy the outdoor tub.
Watch a Movie
Is there a new movie that just came out that you are dying to see? What about that old family movie you haven’t watched in a few years? Whichever you choose, sitting back and popping in your favorite film is a great way to spend a couple of hours when you are snowed in inside your Gatlinburg winter cabin rental.
If you and your family are feeling especially creative, you can always make your own movie during your vacation and hold your own premier on the big screen of your Gatlinburg cabin with home theater system. You can even make it a theme night and have everyone dress up like a really Hollywood premiere. There is no telling how many great family memories this will lead to.
Warm Up In Front of the Fire
What better way to warm up on a cold day in a Gatlinburg winter cabin rental than in front of a roaring fire? At Auntie Belham’s Cabin Rentals, many of our spacious vacation rentals come with either a gas or wood fireplace, perfect for families and guests to cozy up on a chilly day.
These fireplaces are perfect for spending the day curled up the couch, spending the evening sharing stories or simply adding a nice touch to the relaxing feel of your vacation. However you decide to utilize this added amenity, we are sure that you will love enjoy staying warm in front of the fire when you are snowed in inside your Gatlinburg winter cabin rental.
Try a New Recipe
There is no better cure for a cold day than with a delicious homemade meal. This can be a cup of soup, a bowl of chili, a toasted sandwich, or anything else that you and your family love to eat. You can also try something new and be creative with your Gatlinburg winter cabin rental’s fully-equipped kitchen as a way to pass the time on a snowy day.
By choosing to play around in the kitchen, you not only avoid having to worry about driving in the snow, but you also save a little money by not eating out.
Keep in mind, our Gatlinburg winter cabin rental’s kitchens come with a starter set of pots, pans, dishes, silverware, cups, and utensils. If there is a particular serving dish or small appliance that you are fond of when cooking, you may want to consider bringing it from home in case it is not provided.
