October in the Great Smoky Mountains is simply spectacular, and if you are looking for a quick getaway, or want to take a couple of weeks off, check out the great luxury cabins from Patriot Getaways. With over 300 cabins, and chalets there is something for everyone.
When the leaves begin to change color and the evenings start to cool off, the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee really start to take shape. Autumn colors are everywhere and when you open the door to your Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg vacation home you will really appreciate the seasonal change. Unpack your bags and take a drive. Newfound Gap Road and Cades Cove Loop Road really show off the vibrant colors of gold, yellow, red, and burnt orange.
Second Glance is just one of the beautiful luxury cabins that you will find in Gatlinburg. This three bedroom, 3 bath cedar and stone mountain vacation home features panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with easy access to Pigeon Forge. Have a soak in the hot tub, or enjoy a game of eight ball while you prepare a bite to eat in your fully equipped kitchen. After dinner open a bottle of wine and put your feet up in front of the fire.
October means Halloween, and there are plenty of activities for you and your family to enjoy in the Great Smoky Mountains. Every evening from October 5 to the 31, Ripley’s Fright Nights put on a couple of spooky shows. The 14th Fright Nights shows include, “You Just Made a Wrong Turn,” and, “Backwoods Terror.”
The weekend of October 6 and 7 should not be missed. Make a reservation for a luxury cabin in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg and head out to the pumpkin patch at Robert Tino’s Smoky Mountain Homecoming. Your family will enjoy old-fashioned games, bluegrass music, and Robert Tino’s latest print. The Smoky Mountain Woodcarvers Festival is also happening that weekend. Visitors can check out artifacts and take a look at Native American Life through artwork and pottery.
Gatlinburg’s annual Craftsmen’s Fair from the 11th to the 28th is one of the Southeast’s favorite events with over 200 booths featuring local artisans and their work. The Craftsmen’s Fair should not be missed with its daily live entertainment, and delicious local cuisine.
This fall head to the Great Smoky Mountains and experience the true colors of autumn with Patriot Getaways.
