The Great Smoky Mountains are the perfect place to spend your next family vacation! To help you make the most of your getaway, Amazing Views has put together five tips for staying at a 2 bedroom Gatlinburg cabin.
1. Choose the Cabin That’s Right for You
With room for 6 – 10 guests, our 2 bedroom cabins are our most versatile vacation rentals. When you choose your cabin, the four main criteria to keep in mind are space, location, amenities, and pet friendliness. As you browse our selection, ask yourself the following questions:
- Will you be traveling with just your immediate family, or will additional relatives and friends be joining you?
- Do you want to stay in a cabin close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or a cabin in Gatlinburg’s Arts & Crafts Community?
- Are you looking for a cabin with classic amenities or a cabin with access to heated pools and a miniature golf course?
- Do you need a pet friendly cabin so your dog can come on vacation too?

2. Set Aside Time for Relaxation
There is so much to do in the Gatlinburg area! With hiking, outdoor sports, shopping, museums, theme parks, miniature golf, and other great activities, it’s easy to spend the whole day out and about. However, be sure to leave yourself some downtime during your vacation. If you go straight from one activity to the next, it can leave you and your kids feeling a little burnt out.
Instead, take a break in the afternoon and relax at your cabin for a few hours. Whether you take a soothing soak in the hot tub, play a round of pool in the game room, or simply enjoy spectacular mountains views from the deck, a midday break will do wonders for your vacation.
3. Cook a Meal Together as a Family
All of our 2 bedroom Gatlinburg cabins come with fully equipped kitchens, making it easy to whip up something tasty to eat at your convenience. Preparing a meal together as a family is a fun way to spend the evening right in your cabin. Pick up all the ingredients you’ll need at a local grocery store or the Gatlinburg Farmers Market, and then head back to your vacation rental to get cooking! Even if you have young kids, try to get them involved in the cooking process; whether it is adding salt and pepper to a dish or simply stirring a pot. There is nothing quite like sitting down for a family meal that everyone helped prepare.
4. Get Out and Enjoy Nature
When you stay at a Gatlinburg cabin you will be in the heart of one of the most scenic areas in the country. With over 800 miles of hiking trails in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you are guaranteed to find a hike that is the right length and level of difficulty for your family. In addition to hiking, the area offers spectacular fishing, wildlife viewing, horseback riding, white water rafting, and ziplining. If you aren’t looking to break a sweat, you can enjoy the magnificent scenery right from your cabin’s deck or from the comfort of your car.
