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.
What could be more romantic than cuddling with a loved one in the crisp mountain air? Winter is lingering in the Smoky Mountains, bringing with it flickering candlelight, crackling fireplaces, and gorgeous sunsets. Whether you want to explore the city and the mountains or spend a quiet weekend curled up together by the fire, our cabins are the perfect fit for a romantic holiday getaway.
