It’s┬áofficially winter here in the Smokies and we’ve had are first good snow. Winterfest is still in full swing in Gatlinburg and you can enjoy the lights until February 28th.┬á Take a tour of lights on the trolley for just $5.00 per person and see all the magic Gatlinburg has to offer.


Gatlinburg Cabins Rentals at Elk Springs Resort feature 1 to 5 bedroom cabins with hot tubs, theater rooms, pool tables and much much more.


For all of our skiers and snowboarders, Ober Gatlinburg has lots to offer including night skiing, snow tubing, and beginner and expert slopes!  All slopes are open and ready to enjoy, some on a limited operating schedule.


However…Lately, it feels like Spring! With temperatures in the upper 60’s, its a great time to enjoy the National Park without the traffic!┬á With the park’s free admission and several “Motor Nature Trails”, there is plenty to enjoy for just the price of gas.



Roaring Fork motor nature trail is a┬á5.5 mile loop with several trails including the “Rainbow Falls” trail head.┬á There are several homesteads and hiking trails which include 2 other waterfalls. Because the weather is so unpredictable!!! be sure to dress in layers when hiking.


For our families and groups there is lots of excitement downtown including Ripley’s Aquarium, The Space Needle and Fannie Farkles, and always food and shopping at your favorite downtown restaurants and shops. Some of our fav’s…


Howard’s – The best steaks and steak burgers… ALWAYS fresh… ask Jim, the owner, he┬átravels the South every week for┬áhis ingredients.


Best Italian – The BEST parmesan and garlic┬árolls to start every great meal.


Fannie Farkles – Famous Foot long “Ogle” Corn Dogs!!!!


After Apparel of Gatlinburg – beside Subway – Bring your wallet…or your husband’s : )┬á you’ll find a purse you can’t live without.


Toy Crazy – Calhoun’s Village – Unique cool stuff to take home for all ages.


As always, the Elk Springs Resort Gatlinburg Cabins family welcomes you and your family to the Smokies! Be safe and have Fun! experiencing everything the Smokies has to offer!
