Ah, Peak Fall colors in the Smokies! Technically we think we’ve just passed the peak – the National Park Service says several areas reached peak this past weekend. But don’t worry, it’s still a mass of color and will be for some weeks to come yet. And even after that, it’ll go back to plain old gorgeous all winter 🙂

And here’s a beautiful deal – we have a very rare “Fall Leaves” special on our rental cabins right now with savings of up to 30% through October! Check the Cabin Rental Specials page for details.

But do yourself a favor if you want to book a cabin  and call us directly at (866) 347-6659. We can recommend cabins based on your dates and needs, and save you a lot of time. Many of the cabins are already booked through October – it’s a huge month for the area – but we can match you up with the right place for you.

Fall in the Smoky Mountains is a lovely time to to be around the Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge area. Take a look at these wonderful pictures of recent Fall colors in the Smokies at the website of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, taken October 22, 2012.

I especially love the inset image we’re featuring here, taken by retired Park Ranger Warren Bielenberg – utterly fantastic, and it so captures what we see all the time during Fall in the Smokies.

So if you can take advantage of our Fall Leaves special, come and hang out with us while the season turns in its magical way. And if you can’t, don’t feel bad, every season is magnificent here, and this place stays amazing all year round.

So now it’s question time:

  • If you’re from out of town, what’s your best time you’ve ever stayed here?
  • And if you’re local – what’s your favorite time to be here?

I've worked for Gatlinburg Falls since March 2011. Lived in TN since 1996. I have now hiked Mt. LeConte three times. I've been on every trail that leads to the top. The last one we hiked up the Boulevard. I have walked my first 2.7 miles on the Appalachian Trail. Only 2176 miles to go. I plan to hike the Appalachian Trail when my children graduate. I also love lake kayaking on Cherokee Lake and Douglas Lake. We take our kayaks camping to middle Tennessee as well for river kayaking. I love talking to guests from the places I've visited or lived. Brings back many good memories. I love to be where people are having fun.
