From Canada to a cabin rental in the Great Smoky Mountains

Cabin: Cowboy Way

We never thought that escaping to the outdoors would be as reviving and relaxing as our honeymoon to the Great Smoky Mountains with Elk Springs Resort! The long drive from Chatham, Ontario Canada was well worth the wait to see our Gatlinburg cabin and spend five nights! We opened the doors of 'Cowboy Way' to see a lovely, wooden retreat. Each room is decorated to the theme of the cabin and there were many cowboy, western d?cor surrounding the walls of our escape.

After exploring the cabin, we started to unpack and get settled in for our first time stay! We over packed supplies for sure, because the kitchen was supplied with everything we needed! It was a home away from home for sure! We were grateful for the nearby grocery store to quickly grab what we needed for our stay and midnight cravings!

The jacuzzi , and hot-tub were used every night after long days of hiking, shopping and Dollywood! The huge screen T.V. was a favorite by far for my husband to watch movies on a rainy afternoon too! Our honeymoon began with visiting the local arts and craft community shops and talking to many friendly locals that gave us tips to even enjoy our honeymoon more! We found them more enjoyable to shop from because we knew we were helping the families and we enjoyed their products more!

By far, our favorite attraction was Ripley's Aquarium and spent hours enjoying all the ocean wildlife that was there and because of the ticket deal we bought online, we visited the Titanic museum the following day for another enjoyable attraction!

Overall, the weather in May was gorgeous and the rain didn't dampen our spirits as we cuddled up in the cabin and took in our surroundings. We have never visited Elk Springs Resort before and when I signed up to Groupon.com, I noticed the getaway. I thought to myself that we were tired of the beach/resort thing, so I clicked on the fabulous view from one of their cabins and bought the Groupon coupon right away! We even added an extra night and we were so glad we did for all the things to experience there!

We hope to visit Elk Springs Resort again, and hope that they take part in a Groupon again to make it affordable for couples that come from long distances. We hope to stay two weeks on our future visit, and next time we'll do more relaxing and hiking because it is truly God?s country down there and have never felt so free and close to nature when seeing the hills! Thanks again for making our honeymoon a getaway we?ll never forget! If anyone wants to relax and forget about it all, then Elk Springs Resort is above them all!

Much Love From Canada!
