Why Stay in a Cabin For a Winter Vacation in the Smoky Mountains?

When you think about a vacation in the Smoky Mountains, it is easy to focus on all the fun and excitement that can be had during the warmer months. 

However, are you aware of all the benefits that come with choosing to visit the area in the winter? Not only do these spaces give you a welcoming place to stay to snap you out of your winter dreariness, but there are also a ton of features that cabins offer that can only really be appreciated when it’s cold outside.

Outdoor Hot Tubs

There is nothing better to warm you up on a chilly night that sitting back and relaxing in a soothing outdoor hot tub. Located on a private deck with scenic views, these outdoor tubs are a perfect way to unwind after spending a full-day exploring all the fun things to do in the Smoky Mountains. Not to mention, these tubs are also a good way to stay warm on a chilling night in the Smoky Mountains this winter.

Perfect for unwinding after a long day, swapping family stories and snuggling up to someone you love, these roaring fireplaces are just what you need to stay warm this season.

Please keep in mind, most of our fireplaces are either gas or electric, so they may not be the best for making s’mores or popping popcorn, however each of our cabins do come equipped with an outdoor grill that you and your family will be more than able to enjoy these seasonal treats.

Welcoming Atmosphere

The absolute worst feeling, when you are on vacation, is to be staying in a vacation rental that just doesn’t feel like home. Something about the atmosphere and the decor makes the space feel stuffy and uninviting. However, at Auntie Belham’s Cabin Rentals, we are proud to say that each of our Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg cabins offers guests a warm and welcoming atmosphere to enjoy throughout your stay.

Not only are they themed as if they were our own vacation homes, our rentals try to incorporate as many touches of nature and the Smoky Mountains into their decor as possible to help guests connect better with the area.

To see for yourself, feel free to browse through our online Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg cabin inventory.

Whether you want to spend the day working through your Christmas list at our local stores or hitting the slopes at Ober Mountain, you will love being so close to all the action.

Gorgeous Views

Last but not least, it is hard to talk about why families should consider taking a winter vacation in the Smoky Mountains without including how beautiful the mountains look this time of year. Thanks to the peaks in the higher elevations, guests will be able to glance out at the snow-covered mountains from the comfort of the private deck at the cabin rental.
