When the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays roll around, it's natural to think of spending them at home with loved ones, sharing good food, good times and thoughtful gifts with the people who are closest to us.
But, as they say, home is where the heart is, which means if you and your family decide to spend either or both of the upcoming holidays in the Great Smoky Mountains, then it makes sense that your heart would follow, making any place you decide to celebrate a special one.
We can help you and your family find a very special place to spend the holidays. In fact, we've got plenty of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg cabins that are big enough to accommodate large groups. Think of it as a unique way to experience Thanksgiving and Christmas, and with your loved ones sharing them with you, your Smoky Mountain getaway can truly turn out to be a holiday to remember.
We've got seven different four- and five-bedroom cabins in our inventory, which can allow you to sleep as many as 16 guests, when you incorporate sleeper sofas. That means you can take the kids, grandparents and even some aunts, uncles and cousins.
All our accommodations must go through a rigorous approval process, so any of our properties that you stay in is going to be top-notch – clean, comfortable, luxurious and packed with amenities. Our cabins offer full kitchens with appliances, dishes and cookware, bathrooms with whirlpool tubs, outdoor hot tubs, game rooms with pool tables, foosball tables and the like, board games, multiple TVs with DVD players and VCRs, free WiFi connections, laundry facilities, decks with chairs, fireplaces and much more.
Because each cabin has a full kitchen, you'd have almost everything you'd need to make your own Thanksgiving or Christmas feast. But if you truly want to be hands-off this season, there are also many restaurants in the area that will be open, at least on Thanksgiving, allowing you to sit down to turkey, dressing, sides, desserts and more. Of course, you'll have to head back to your cabin to take that big post-meal nap.
You'll also find a ton of things to do here in the Smokies, even though it's what used be known around here as the off-season. For example, you'll find yourself smack in the middle of all the Winterfest activities in Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. You can tour these cities on your own and take in the dozens of light displays, featuring millions of lights, or if you're in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, you can take guided trolley tours that allow you to relax and enjoy all the sites in the heated comfort of a trolley.
Beyond that, each city has multiple Winterfest events taking place throughout the season. Look for arts and craft fairs, seasonal happenings, and at Dollywood, you can enjoy that theme park's Smoky Mountain Christmas celebration into the first couple of days of 2015.

Leif Palmer loves residing in the Smoky Mountains. He is an avid outdoorsman: rowing for exercise on the lake, trail hiking, and free climbing rocks in the 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). Leif has been known to muster enough courage to change a diaper, and hopes his son will become a chip off the old block.
