So you’re interested in a secluded, mountain adventure? I thought the photo above might grab your attention. Who wouldn’t want to stay in a beautiful cabin when it is often cheaper then a hotel!

Cabin rentals offer you the privacy you crave on a mountain retreat without sacrificing on the luxury and amenities we all want. There are certainly no shortage of cabin rentals available in the Great Smoky Mountains… with a little searching you can find the perfect cabin.

The most popular cabin rental locations include:

Tennessee North Carolina
Gatlinburg Asheville
Pigeon Forge Cherokee
Sevierville Bryson City
Wears Valley Waynesville
Highlands
Maggie Valley

While cabin rentals are my favorite accommodation option for a Great Smoky Mountain retreat, they are not for everyone. Please take a look over our Pro / Con list before you book a stay. Please note that the lists below are generalizations and your specific cabin may not have all these amenities.

Pros Cons
Privacy Not near highways
Unique No maid service
Great views No pool
Kitchen
Hot tub
Sleeps many
Pet friendly
Internet access

In my opinion the pros vastly outweigh the few cons. Unless you need staff to wait on you and clean up after you, then a cabin rental should be at the top of your accommodations list. The views you’ll get from a cabin make it worth your while.

Cabin rental pricing is usually comparable to that of a local hotel. Depending on the number of rooms and amenities you’re looking for, cabins can range anywhere from $80/night to $500+. There are cabins in the area that have as many as 11 bedrooms, so don’t worry about planning a trip for a large family.

Here are several Great Smoky Mountain cabin rental companies for you to check out. Each of them offer unique cabins in different cities, so be sure to browse dozens of cabins before making your final selection.

Great Smoky Accommodation Options

Accommodation options in the Great Smoky Mountains are as bountiful as the outdoor activities. Options range from total seclusion to royal pampering. Whether you want to rough it in the backwoods or have wait staff at your beckon call, the Great Smokies have a place for you.

Lodging falls into three basic categories:

Cabins
Want to get away? Looking for a quiet place to enjoy your stay without the hustle and bustle of hotel accommodations? Rental cabins are probably the choice for you… and they are my favorite lodging option when visiting the Great Smoky Mountains. Most visitors would want to get away from city life seek out private cabins nestled in the mountains. It’s the best way to fully take in the Smoky Mountain experience.

Hotels
For those of you maybe just stopping by the GRSM for a day or two, or maybe you’ve seen too many scary movies … the hotel option is amply available throughout the region. You can find several hotel chains on both the North Carolina and Tennessee sides of the Smokies. You won’t have to worry about booking issues or making your bed in the morning (thank you maids!) and you can still take in the excitement for a reasonable nightly rate.

Resorts & Spas
Imagine slipping into a 107 degree hot tub made out of stone on a cool autumn night. You share a glass of champagne with your spouse and take it the soft moonlight above. After you crawl back to your king-size bed and fall asleep, you will wake up to room service delivering a hot pancake breakfast. These are the amenities a resort & spa will give you… if you have the money of course.
