About Tony Perez

I'm a people person, and I enjoy the atmosphere that working with Cabins Of The Smoky Mountains entails, interacting with different types of people and trying to relate to each one uniquely. From Michigan originally, I've been coming to the Smoky Mountains since I was a child, with family in Wears Valley. Summer fun for me is exploring the Cades Cove area, swimming in the creeks, and hiking Mount LeConte and many other trails. I love the Smoky Mountains.

Lynette’s Trip to Gatlinburg

Recently, Lynette and her family visited Gatlinburg Falls Resort and stayed at one of our luxurious cabins. Lynette is a writer from Ohio who came to enjoy the beautiful springtime weather in the Smoky Mountains. The whole family took day trips out to attractions in the Gatlinburg area. In the evenings, they enjoyed their cabin’s amenities and Lynette was happy to share the experience with us.

Lynette stayed in one of our 4-bedroom, two story cabins, Cypress Lodge. Like all of our cabins, this offered spectacular views of the forests and Smoky Mountains just outside. The inside of the cabin offered plenty of room for her and her whole family, with numerous amenities, and a fully equipped kitchen.

Victoria’s Breathtaking Cabin Vacation

Victoria, blogger and creative force behind the lifestyle website Simply Today Life, loves to travel, and she understands how important family vacations are for strengthening familial bonds and giving everyone a chance to recharge through new experiences. She, along with her husband and two children, recently had the opportunity to visit the Smoky Mountains region and stay in one of our well-appointed cabins. The family had plenty of great things to say about their trip, and they can’t wait for their next opportunity to return!

The views from our Smoky Mountains cabins are always among the first things to take our guests’ breath away, and that was the case with Victoria as well. She loved that she could see the majestic, snow-capped mountains, and parts of the town of Gatlinburg right from their balcony. This meant they were able to get somewhat of a secluded experience for their cabin vacation, but were also close enough to many of the popular attractions in town.

Shelly’s Ultimate Cabin Vacation

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.
