When you come to the Smokies, like any other vacation spot, you have plenty of options. Hotels line both sides of the Parkways in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. On Soco Rd in Maggie Valley the small mom and pop hotels and motels are in high demand as people come to the area to ski in the winter. Or maybe you are looking for a resort – then you might want to head to Highlands, Cashiers or Blowing Rock.
Cabins & Chalets
One of the best ways to enjoy your vacation is to make sure that your entire family can spend time together. In the luxury of a cabin in the Smokies, you are able to hangout, surrounded by the amenities that you choose. You are able to have meals together, you are able to play games together. If the point in a vacation is to have family time then a cabin is a great choice fr your lodging needs. Whether you need two bedrooms or 12 bedrooms the cabins in the Smoky Mountains could be the highlight of your vacation. Or maybe you are wanting something a little more intimate, then you can find that secluded getaway for two in a one bedroom cabin. Sit on the hot tub on a private deck and enjoy the company of that someone special.
A traditional way to spend the night while you are in the Smokies. Find a hotel and spend your time out and about enjoying the attractions and the outdoor beauty of the mountains. Whether you are looking for something inexpensive or a high end hotel that gives you all the amenities you could want so that you don’t even want to leave the hotel, the cities that surround the Smokies have plenty of rooms for rent.
Camping is as tied to the Smokies as the black bear. People have been camping in the Smokies since the time of the pioneers. And though the camping of today only remotely resembles the camping of yesteryear, it is alive and well in the Smokies.
Looking for a cross between the hotel and the cabin. Find a condo. Condos have the access of a hotel – being close to the action – and the room and amenities of a cabin. Condos are usually less expensive than a cabin but you will have more room, a kitchen and a usually a washer and dryer in the condo giving you a place to cook and to wash a load of clothes if you need to.
Inns & B&Bs
Small inns and plenty of bed & breakfasts are tucked into the nooks and crannies of the Smoky Mountains. Offering that special, personal touch is what these type of accomodations do best. You have an innkeeper at these establishments and a staff that knows the area. If you would like to feel like you are home, these are the places that you want to stay.
Especially in Western North Carolina, resorts are the way to go for those of you looking for that special place to stay. High class accommodations, restaurants, golf, tennis and much more are offered by the resorts in the Smoky Mountains. From Cashiers and Highlands to Blowing Rock and beyond, the high end resort is the only way to go.
