Gatlinburg is the perfect destination for a Valentine’s Day escape! A cabin in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains provides the ideal accommodations for a few days of relaxation and romance. To help you make the most of your getaway, Chalet Village has put together five fun ideas for celebrating Valentine’s Day in Gatlinburg.
1. Drive Through Cades Cove
Cades Cove is one of the most beautiful spots in the United States! This incredibly scenic valley offers stunning mountain views, historic cabins, and superb wildlife viewing. Couples will love driving Cades Cove’s 11 mile loop road, which passes by all of the valley’s popular landmarks. Be sure to bring your camera, because Cades Cove provides a seemingly endless array of wonderful photo opportunities.
2. Go Ice Skating at Ober Gatlinburg
Ice skating is another romantic way to spend part of your Valentine’s Day in Gatlinburg. When you stay at Chalet Village, you will be minutes away from the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area & Amusement Park, as our cabin community is located on the same mountain as the resort. In addition to fantastic skiing and snowboarding, Ober features a great indoor ice skating rink. For just $9 per person, you and your sweetheart can spend up to three hours gliding across the ice, hand in hand.
3. Take in the Views from the Gatlinburg Space Needle
For breathtaking views of downtown Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains, it’s hard to beat the Gatlinburg Space Needle. This 407 ft. tall observation tower provides unparalleled panoramic vistas that you can enjoy with complimentary view finders or the naked eye. To make your visit to the Space Needle even more romantic, we suggest going at night, so you can see all of the glittering lights on The Strip.
4. Have a Romantic Dinner
There is certainly no shortage of romantic places to dine in Gatlinburg! The area is filled with superb restaurants that offer gourmet steaks, seafood, and other entrees, along with views of Gatlinburg’s beautiful natural scenery. Here are a few of our favorite places to enjoy a Valentine’s Day dinner:
- The Melting Pot
- Cherokee Grill
- The Peddler Steakhouse
- Greenbrier Restaurant
- The Park Grill
- Crystelle Creek Restaurant & Grill
5. Relax in Your Cabin
While there is so much to do in town, couples will definitely want to spend plenty of time just relaxing in their cabin. The properties at Chalet Village come with romantic amenities that are perfect for a couples getaway. Sitting beside the fireplace, soaking in the Jacuzzi tub, or admiring the mountain views from your deck may just be the most memorable parts of your Valentine’s Day in Gatlinburg
