We’re always glad to hear about other people’s great experiences staying in one of our Smoky Mountains luxury cabins. Here’s what Southern-lifestyle specialist Shelly had to say about her family’s Gatlinburg getaway.
Shelly reports that her family had an amazing stay in Cypress Lodge, a newly finished 4-bedroom cabin with richly detailed decor. The amenities were plentiful, with king beds in each of the four bedrooms along with two queen pull-out sleepers and 1 bunk bed set. There was no standing in line for the shower as the cabin had four full bathrooms and two half-baths, and a hot tub on one of the decks for good measure. And, there was no need to worry about finding a laundry or packing extra clothes because the cabin had its own washer and dryer. These things make a big difference for a mom and her family on vacation.
Spring is just around the corner, and on March 20th, the first official day of the season, another very special event is taking place in Pigeon Forge: A Mountain Quiltfest 2018.
Tuesday through Saturday, March 20-24, the 24th Annual A Mountain Quiltfest will bring together lovers of quilts and quilting from all over. The event takes place at the LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge, daily 9 am to 5 pm (4 pm on Saturday).

Gatlinburg Falls Resort recently welcomed new guest Pam, a prolific writer and blogger from nearby Georgia, who came to stay with her family in one of our mountain cabins.
Pam, who saw an article in Southern Living Magazine listing Gatlinburg Falls Resort as “The #1 Best Family Resort in the Smokies” said she had visited Gatlinburg before, but never at such a luxurious location as Gatlinburg Falls. She enjoyed a wonderful stay at the cabin with her family and had these glowing remarks to make about the experience.
Recently, travel writer Niki, who blogs at Adventures of a Mid-Life Mommy, had the opportunity to visit the Smoky Mountains region and stay in one of our cabins. Niki is a Tennessee native and no stranger to the Smokies, but she was excited for this opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life for a spell and share some of the magic of the mountains with her family.
Niki has fond memories of the Smokies and Gatlinburg from when she was a child, so she is always delighted to know that the quaint, charming vibe of the town and the friendly residents are still hallmarks of the experience of visiting here. Those initial views of the mountain range in the distance as one crosses into Sevier County never fail to make her feel like she’s coming back home to a beloved place. She and her family stayed in our beautiful cabin named Cypress Lodge, which is a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath unit with a fully furnished kitchen and all of the amenities that a family could need.

Who needs any of that?
If you’re stressed, the best remedy is to take a break and indulge in a bit of pampering. And what better place to pamper yourself than in the Smoky Mountains?
