It was 80 years ago this Mother’s Day that the Wayland and Ogle families had their first picnic in Sevierville. William Ogle built the first homestead in Gatlinburg, and although he passed away before he could enjoy his new home, his wife completed the cabin, which still stands today. The families ate fried chicken, potato salad and freshly brewed sun tea. Not much has changed since 1932, and families from all over the world still gather together in the Great Smoky Mountains to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Mothers Day is the perfect time to surprise the most important woman in your life with a weekend getaway, and the folks at Patriot Getaways have the perfect luxury cabin that will show Mom how much you really appreciate her. Go online and take a look at what is available. With 300 lodges, chalet’s and cabins to choose from, the hardest decision that you will have to make is deciding which luxury property to book. Every cabin offers all of the comforts of home including fully equipped kitchens, outdoor barbecues, fireplaces, and outdoor hot tubs. Some even have indoor Jacuzzi’s, games rooms and home theatres.

Give mom the break that she truly deserves and prepare all of her meals. Shop for groceries and make breakfast, lunch and dinner, or ask the team at Patriot Getaways to deliver food baskets. Go to the website and choose from a variety of gifts that include picnic items, chocolate treats, bath and beauty baskets, fresh cut flowers, and much more. All you have to do is order your Mother’s Day gift and it will be delivered to your luxury cabin in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge before you arrive.

If the thought of cooking doesn’t appeal to you, there are some excellent restaurants in the Great Smoky Mountains. Put the Pancake Pantry on your list for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Since 1960, this delicious eatery has been serving up homemade meals like omelets, strawberry pancakes, and bacon and eggs. After breakfast head into town and let mom do some shopping, or take the aerial tram, have lunch at the top of the mountain, or spend your afternoon at the Wildlife Encounter.

Make this Mother’s Day memorable, and book a luxury cabin in The Great Smoky Mountains with Patriot Getaways. Mom will really appreciate the thought and effort that you put into her favorite day of the year, and so will you.
