You have to work but you want a change of scenery – head to the Great Smoky Mountains. Settle in to an American Patriot Getaways cabin and relax and work with a killer view and all the vacation amenities and comforts of home without the stress of home.
We have pages of choices for cabins with WiFi and high-speed Internet. Whether you want to be close to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge or far away from it all. Whether you want distractions for when you aren’t working – game rooms, movie rooms, TV sports packages, swimming pools – or you want just an equipped kitchen, a hot tub and a view – we have it all.
This beautiful one-bedroom studio cabin in Pigeon Forge is a cozy getaway. Set up your vacation office by the stone fireplace or from the porch swing while soaking up the mountain view.
Conveniently located in Wears Valley just 5 miles from all the attractions, Loving You is just far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the mountains. There’s a fun heart-shaped whirlpool tub, and a private outdoor hot tub so you have no excuse not to relax after putting in a full workday. Plus – take a look at the view!
Bringing the family on your working vacation or perhaps a work group for brainstorming and a change of scenery? Gatlinburg Getaway sleeps 12 in a 3-bed, 3.5 bath Deluxe home.
Enter from level parking into the spacious interior where guests are welcomed by panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Three back decks with dining, hot tub, and rocking chairs offer comfortable and unique work and relaxing space.
Inside, tall windows bring the views right into each of 3 King Master Bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own attached bath for guest privacy. When it’s time to relax, shoot some pool in the billiards room with custom painted wildlife mural or just kick your feet up by the fire and enjoy a movie on the LED TV.

Tips for a Better Working Vacation
There are so many fabulous options in the Great Smoky Mountains. How do you stay motivated on a working vacation? We have some tips for you. Gathered from my personal experience and some articles from around the globe.
I have worked from home for years and when I worked in an office, I would take working vacations so that I could stay in places longer – Germany/Czech Republic, Maine, Kentucky with family. If you can do it, vacation working can be wonderful!
- Create a comfortable space where you can see the view but have quiet to work.
- Get your coffee, or tea and a snack ready and set up near you so you don’t need to keep getting up.
- Tell your spouse, friend, family – whomever you are traveling with – that you will be working.
- Take breaks every hour – get up and walk outside; say hi to friend, family, spouse; stretch, do some yoga poses (I suggest a couple of sun salutations, a full body stretch, roll your shoulders up and down your back).
- Have an Internet back up. Unexpected power outages caused by weather or the electric company or Internet black outs can cause unnecessary stress. No one wants to tell his/her team leader she can’t work because while on vacation, she lost Internet. Make it happen no matter what. I like a Verizon Mi-Fi myself – other companies offer options. And do your research – where is the nearest coffee shop, library or public space with WiFi? Have a plan.
- Try not to brag about your vacation digs to your colleagues who might be stuck in windowless office somewhere. Share with your friends who might like the area, but keep the bragging out of meetings.
From halfhalftravel.com, the writer suggests this skeleton list of essentials in addition to standard ‘vacation stuff:’
- my Dell XPS 13-inch laptop
- a slim laptop sleeve for traveling with a laptop
- a small-size wireless mouse by Logitech to avoid hand cramping
- the Sony noise-cancelling headphones for taking video meetings
- a laptop stand like the Roost laptop stand , which travelers love because it folds up and fits in any suitcase or bag
- a super slim external keyboard like the Apple magic keyboard to use when you’re using a laptop stand
Minimize distractions in order to work efficiently:
“I find that I check my phone often – okay, all the time. If my phone is next to me, I’ll start checking all my apps and it takes away significantly from my work. As with any type of task to which you dedicate your energy, take away the things that prevent you from being productive.”
“If you don’t work well in loud environments, get some noise-cancelling headphones . If you function well with background noise like I do, use the energy of those around you to keep yourself motivated. Remove the little distractions that get in your way of having a productive day in your remote office.”
