Social Distancing in the Smoky Mountains

Social distancing and fun can go together. Get away to a private cabin in the Smoky Mountains, where outdoor activities and in-cabin entertainments let you relax without worry.

Before you arrive, check local rules about face masks. You can find the latest updates on masking at the Sevier County website linked here. Details are also on local Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg tourist sites.

Contactless Entry to a Clean Cabin

At Colonial Properties Cabin & Resort Rentals, we use virtual check-in and check-out. You can drive directly to your private cabin—not our office.

Our housekeepers use a 125-point checklist to ensure your cabin is truly clean, right down to all those small, “high touch” surfaces most of us take for granted. We’ll clean your light switches, remote controls, railings, appliance controls, and handles and knobs on your cabin’s doors, drawers and cabinets. That’s all on top of our usual deep cleaning.

We use disinfectants that follow government guidelines for eliminating viruses. Because our cabins conveniently provide your bed linens and towels, rest assured that we wash and sanitize all used linens off-site, not in your cabin’s washer and dryer.


Relax in Your Cabin

If you want to avoid restaurants, your cabin has everything you need to cook wonderful meals. Services like Instacart deliver groceries in most locations. Want takeout? DoorDash and GrubHub operate in the area, and can serve most cabins.

When you want a truly special meal, why not hire a personal chef to come to your cabin and prepare gourmet food? Firms like Fruitful Vintage Chef and Savory Solutions Personal Chefs do all the work while you just enjoy the results. If you’re concerned about having chefs come into your family’s space, just ask them about their Covid-19 safety practices—you’ll find that caterers and chefs here are taking precautions to keep you healthy.

Try a soothing massage in your cabin. The privacy and personal attention of an in-cabin massage make this hands-on service even more relaxing. You don’t have to spend your time traveling when the massage comes to you. Local businesses like Gatlinburg Mobile Massage and Pure Mountain Therapy will tell you how they make massage safe.

Stay in, and relish your cabin’s great amenities. Pamper yourself in the hot tub. Take advantage of your cabin’s game room to shoot pool or play arcade games. Some cabins even boast private movie theaters. We’ll help you find a cabin with the extras you want.


Experience Our Great Outdoors

The Smoky Mountains are the big attraction here. Hike nature trails, visit historic sites, camp or take scenic drives through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Eight hundred miles of hiking trails, from easy strolls to challenging treks, take you deep into the park. You can fish in the Little Pigeon River, too (some of our cabins have fishing streams or ponds on the cabin grounds!).

Outdoor activities like ziplines, coasters, go-kart tracks and theme park rides are easy to find in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Bring your masks and have a socially distanced—but still fun—getaway.
