Top 6 Reasons Gatlinburg Cabins for Rent are Better Than Hotels

While a hotel might be great for a trip to New York City, if you’re vacationing in Gatlinburg, TN, a cabin rental is far and away the best place to stay. A cabin provides an authentic Smoky Mountain experience that you simply can’t find with any other type of lodging. To help you plan your next getaway, Chalet Village has put together six reasons staying at one of our Gatlinburg cabins for rent is better than staying at a hotel.

1. A Real Home Away from Home

When you stay at a hotel, you just have a place to sleep. When you stay in a cabin, however, you have your very own home away from home in Gatlinburg! Our properties provide plenty of space to spread out, with living rooms, bedrooms, dining areas, kitchens, and even more rooms. With everything from 1 bedroom cabins for romantic retreats to 8 bedroom cabins for family reunions, we are guaranteed to have the perfect accommodations for your group.

2. Surrounded by Natural Beauty

Millions of people visit Gatlinburg each year to enjoy the area’s majestic scenery. When you stay at a cabin rental, you will be immersed in this breathtaking natural beauty. Chalet Village is bordered by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on three sides, so many of our properties offer stunning views of East Tennessee’s gorgeous landscapes. While a hotel might come with a balcony overlooking a swimming pool, our cabins offer spacious decks where you can kick back in a hot tub or a rocking chair and admire some of the best views in America.

3. Close to All of the Fun on The StripGatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains.

Although our cabins are tucked away in the foothills of the Smokies, they are still near all of the fun in downtown Gatlinburg. Chalet Village is just a 10 – 15 minute drive from the wonderful attractions, restaurants, and shops on The Strip. Guests at hotels never truly get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but folks who rent cabins at Chalet Village have the best of both worlds: proximity to town but enough distance from all of the activity to feel relaxed.

4. Awesome Amenities

Hotels can’t compete with the luxurious amenities available at our cabin rentals. Our properties come with your choice of awesome features, including hot tubs, home theaters, fireplaces, outdoor grills, pool tables, foosball tables, and high-speed internet. In addition to all of this in-cabin entertainment, guests can take advantage of Chalet Village’s spectacular resort amenities. With swimming pools, tennis courts, shuffleboard, lawn games, board games, and even more activities, our cabin community is overflowing with fun things to do.

5. Fully-Equipped Kitchens

While a hotel room might come with a microwave and a mini fridge, all of our cabins feature fully furnished kitchens. Having a kitchen during your vacation means that you don’t have to go to a restaurant in town every time you want to eat. Guests will love having the flexibility of dining in whenever they choose. Additionally, preparing a few of your meals at your home away from home is a great way to save money.

In contrast, finding a hotel that will let you bring a dog is often like finding a needle in a haystack.
