If you have an upcoming family reunion to plan, you are probably looking for fun ideas that don’t involve having to put the entire family up at your home. Although playing host to family members has its fun aspects, you’ll be more likely to relax and enjoy the company of your relatives if the reunion is held at a location where no one person or family is responsible for lodging and meals. Many families choose to rent vacation homes and cabins for their reunions rather than having them hosted in one of their homes.
Mountain cabins are among the most popular destinations for those seeking places to have family gatherings. Renting a cabin in Gatlinburg will ensure that your relatives have access to a variety of outdoor activities, are able to enjoy breathtaking vistas and enjoy the unique hospitality of this part of the American South.
Available outdoor activities will be dependent on the time of year that you plan to visit. Fishing, hiking, boating and simply sitting on the deck of your rental cabin enjoying the view of the Smoky Mountains are all popular pastimes for visitors during the spring, summer and fall. Winter sports aficionados will appreciate the community’s ski lodge where they can go downhill skiing as well as hone their snowboarding skills. Visitors lucky enough to have scheduled their trips for the holiday season will enjoy the way that the entire downtown is decorated with festive holiday lights.
The picturesque community of Gatlinburg features many pleasant activities. A local haunted house known as the “Mysterious Mansion” never fails to thrill visitors, and classic car lovers can view the patrol vehicle used by Sheriff Taylor in Mayberry as well as the jalopy featured in the Beverly Hillbillies. Local theater specializing in family-friendly fare is also well-represented in Gatlinburg. The community’s transit system is excellent for a town of its size, and if you have a engaged couple among your reunion attendees, the area features over twenty wedding chapels as well as relaxed restrictions on obtaining wedding licenses.
From large, luxurious log homes to fun rustic cabins, accommodations in Gatlinburg exist to suit that will suit the needs and preferences of any family holding a reunion.
