The Smoky Mountains are an amazingly beautiful place to go to get away from the world. They are pretty all year round, but are especially phenomenal in the fall. They are one of the most popular tourist attractions in the U.S. Ten million or more people visit each year. There are tons of rental cabins available for every budget.
Staying in a cabin instead of a motel has many advantages when in the mountains. In the Smoky Mountains cost is not a factor; often the cabins are the same price as a motel. Cabins also have things that hotels do not, such as: jacuzzis, hi-def televisions, large decks with incredible views, and more. There is also the privacy issue; in a cabin there will not be a ton of people right on top of you.
The best thing to do when deciding which cabin to rent is to do some research online. Often sites will have pictures of the cabins inside and out. You will also need to find out the location of the cabin you choose, as some are very far removed from local areas and require 4-wheel drive to get to them. Privacy can also be an issue. Find out if the cabins where you are renting are built really close to one another if you are looking for privacy.
There are also some cabins that charge extra fees on top of rental for such things as cleaning and hot tub fees. Find out if these apply, as they can be a last minute surprise. Make sure your rental fees include everything.
The Smoky Mountains are beautiful, and the best way to experience them with family or a loved one is in a secluded cabin with an incredible view. With a little research you should easily be able to find the right one for you.
