How To Choose a Gatlinburg Cabin

Whether you’re looking to book your inaugural trip to the Great Smoky Mountains or you’re planning a return to this majestic and storied region, how to choose a Gatlinburg cabin is pretty simple if you know what to look for. But you won’t be able to just show up and hope that your favorite place is available and everything will work out. After all, the Great Smoky Mountains is the country’s most-visited national park, and it’s a good idea to line up a reservation before you make the trek in.

How Many People?

The first order of business in choosing a Gatlinburg cabin is to determine what you need, which starts with the number of people in your party. Some cabins are just right for two people but might be too small for a family that may need separate areas for the adults and kids. If you’re traveling with a group, our larger cabins can sleep a dozen or more guests with several bedrooms and bathrooms, but if it’s just you and your significant other a remote one-bedroom may be just perfect.

Where Do You Want To Stay?

Since the Great Smoky Mountains stretches out over 500,000 acres, there are a lot of options when it comes to choosing a Gatlinburg cabin. The great thing is that Gatlinburg is right in the middle of it all, and you can choose to position yourselves close to the area’s attractions or opt for a more remote experience. But no matter where you stay, you’ll still be a short drive or hike away from the majestic wonder that is Gatlinburg. With over 100 unique Gatlinburg cabins available, it’s easy to find the right cabin for you.

What’s Your Budget?

While you can’t exactly plan a trip without defining a budget, our cabins are highly affordable for both small and large groups. For about what you’d pay at a generic hotel in a big city, our Gatlinburg cabins provide an experience you can’t get anywhere else on earth. Our frequent cabin specials also provide opportunities to land an outsized cabin on a budget for you and a handful of friends. In addition to smaller, one bedroom Gatlinburg cabins, we also provide group cabins, honeymoon cabins, cabins with pools and theater room cabins for just about any function or relaxation.

Which Amenities Are Important?

While every cabin on our property is a unique experience in and of itself, certain features may be more important than others. If you’re interested in a creekside cabin or one that’s pet-friendly, we’ve got your back. Or what about cabins with a pool or theater room? We’ve got that, too. From cozy one-bedrooms all the way up to nine-bedroom lodges, there’s a cabin for you here at Elk Spring Resort. For digital nomads and those that can’t take a day off of work, all of our cabins feature free WiFi so that you can get work done while you’re relaxing. Or, plan a “work-cation” in a luxury cabin environment!

What Should You Bring?

A stay in the Great Smoky Mountains can be an adventure or a relaxing time, but if you want to venture out into nature, you’ll have to come prepared. Sure, you can keep warm and cozy inside a Gatlinburg cabin, but outside you’ll need a few things. For hikers, don’t forget the hiking boots and some warm and comfy clothes for your time outside. Those who want to enjoy a daily dip in the pool or hot tub will need some towels and a swimsuit. For the workaholics, don’t forget your computer, phone and chargers for all your devices.

How to Enjoy Your Gatlinburg Cabin

Our 68-acre retreat is located just eight minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, right in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. You can take in the breathtaking views of our own valleys and ridges right from your own cabin rental and spot the immense assortment of natural plants and wildlife that are native to the area.

The region is also a superior choice for outdoor enthusiasts. Apart from the natural splendor of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you’ll find top-tier hiking, biking, climbing and even extreme adventures like zip-lining. If you’re more of an aquatic type, you’ll want to take advantage of the great fishing and water tubing in the area, along with special spots for whitewater rafting. Don’t forget: there’s lots to do year-round. You’ll find fantastic snow activities in the nearby Appalachian Mountain chain.

We’re also just a short 15-minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg and surrounding attractions. Take the family for a fun-filled day at one of the many nearby attractions. The legendary Dollywood amusement park or more extreme pursuits like the indoor Pigeon Forge Snow park or the new SkyBridge take your adventure to dizzying heights. Not one for thrills? Explore the wonderful architecture in the historic Arts & Crafts Community. Trust us when we say that there is something for everyone on your stay at Elk Springs Resort.

Whether it’s another year in the books for your family, or your first time taking advantage of our Gatlinburg cabin rentals, we look forward to seeing you!
