Honeymoon in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee

Cabin: Whispering Creek

When my wife and I we thinking of places to go on our honeymoon the Smoky Mountains were the first thing that came to my mind. She always wanted to stay in a cabin in the mountains.

This was my wife's first trip to Gatlinburg but not mine. After searching for cabins we found Elk Springs Resort. We decided to stay in the Whispering Creek Cabin, which was actually off the resorts main property. It was easy to find and had a nice view of the Smoky Mountains. The cabin was perfect.



Whispering Creek had a very nice sitting/eating area on the main floor. All the required dishes and appliances were provided for cooking a great meal. Downstairs was the bedroom with a pool table, which I was excited about and balcony with a hot tub that was used every night. I wish we had a hot tub at home so I could relax each day after work. The cabin also came equipped with wireless high speed internet which was nice so we could stay in touch with family through facebook.

We planned to just relax on the honeymoon so one day we took a drive through the Smoky Mountains. A drive through the Newfound Gap, which at the middle point lets you stand in Tennessee and North Carolina at the same time was a nice relaxing day. From there we drove to Clingmans Dome which is one of the highest points you can go in the Smoky Mountains. Beware though there is a hike to the top of about half a mile that is steep.

After our drive and walk to Clingmans Dome we decided to go horseback riding. We found Sugarland riding Stables inside the park and had an excellent time. Definitely recommend them for a great time. Another day we decided to go to downtown Gatlinburg to see the 'Cars of the Stars' and the Ripleys Aquarium. The aquarium was the best part of Gatlinburg. We spent about 3 hours there looking at all the different things. We did miss out on some things we would of liked to do.

Next time I would like to bring my golf clubs and do some golfing. If you are thinking of staying in the Smokey Mountains don?t hesitate to choose Elk Springs Resort. I won?t next time I go to Gatlinburg
