1. Plenty of Space in a Large Cabin

Thanksgiving means gathering lots of family and friends. But if you think your turkey day crew won’t fit into a mountain cabin—think again. We have room for eight who fit around one table, 20 to spread out in our super-spacious largest cabins, or 50 who need a whole neighborhood! Everyone can find privacy and space to themselves. You don’t have to be on top of each other to be together.

2. Lots of Entertainment in Your Cabin

Bigger cabins mean more indoor fun. Private movie theaters with plush seating and huge screens. Game rooms with pool tables, arcade games, air hockey, foosball, and more. Hot tubs for bubbling breaks. Fire pits for s’mores and storytelling in the cool evening air. Plenty to do without leaving your cabin!

3. Eat Out at a Local Restaurant

Sure, these cabins boast fully equipped kitchens. But on the big day, you want to enjoy the company, so eat out! Many Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge restaurants are open to dish up everything from traditional Thanksgiving dinners to steak, seafood, Southern home cooking, and pancakes and pizzas too. Why cook and clean up when you can sample local fare without the work?

 4. Create Special Memories

You’re away from home and work. You can focus on your loved ones. Read to a kid without worrying about work e-mail. Sit down and talk to grandma without interruption. Finally, see that movie you’ve been meaning to share with your sweetheart. Use these days and nights to recharge your relationships.

5. Have Some Fun

There’s something for all ages in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. See a holiday show at Country Tonite or Dolly Parton’s Stampede. Shop at Gatlinburg’s Thanksgiving weekend craft festival. Hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Ski at Ober Gatlinburg, or tour the mountains by Jeep with a guide. You won’t run out of options.

6. Total Rest and Relaxation

A vacation is even better when you come home to a private cabin rental. Recuperate with a soak in your hot tub or jetted bathtub. Unwind by the fireplace as everyone swaps tales of their day out. Watch the stars from your deck before you hit the hay. Rent your Thanksgiving vacation cabin today.
