Rental Cabins Offer An Experience Unlike Other Accommodations

Posted by Leif Palmer in Rental Cabins

There's no doubt that anyone planning an overnight stay or longer in the Great Smoky Mountains has seemingly endless options when it comes to choosing accommodations. There are hotels, motels, condos, bed and breakfast inns, campgrounds and more – all competing for your lodging dollars.

Here are some of the many advantages of choosing to stay in a rental cabin or chalet. This applies to rentals in general, but naturally, we believe our selection of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Wears Valley and Sevierville cabins is the best you'll find in the area.

Our inventory of luxury properties ranges from one to five bedrooms, and all our homes go through a thorough approval process before being allowed onto our rental program. And we make sure that all Timbercreek rentals are attractive, high-quality homes with plenty of amenities and conveniences.

But back to the advantages of staying in a rental…

First, cabins just give you more space. When compared to the size of the typical motel room, even our smallest one-bedroom cabins have plenty of space for folks to spread out and breathe. And really, for larger parties, a rental is the only real option. It's always more fun to have folks under one roof as opposed to lining up in multiple hotel rooms, especially if it's a reunion or corporate gathering.

Rentals also deliver way more amenities. In a hotel or motel, you might get an ironing board, iron, coffee maker and the like. But few single-room establishments offer guests their own private outdoor hot tub. Or whirlpool tub in the bathroom. Or pool table. Or full kitchen with dining area. Or libraries of board games and DVDs.

And when you stay in an overnight cabin, you get a real sense of being at home. There's something about being able to pull your car up to your property and park in your own dedicated parking area and have a couch you can plop down onto while watching a little television that can make you feel comfortably settled. But because our cabins are in the Great Smoky Mountains, you can leave that home away from home and in just a few minutes be enjoying all the area's attractions, shops and restaurants, not to mention the national park.

Cabins can also be more cost-effective. The more people you have sharing a rental, the more you can split the rental cost, and even in cases where it's just two people, you get so much more for the money you spend, compared to a hotel or motel. And with a full kitchen in all our rentals, you can save money on your trip by stocking up on groceries and doing some cooking instead of dining out every single meal.

Finally, don't forget about the views. There are some hotels and motels with nice views around here, but so many of our cabins have great mountain and valley views. Even the ones that don't are usually in private wooded settings where you can truly relax and unwind and enjoy the peacefulness of being in the Great Smoky Mountains.

He indulges his arty side by periodically beating up pieces of marble by sculpting. He is always frustrated by his inability to sink long putts, and hates his curly hair (but his wife loves it).
