Blessed with spectacular natural beauty and a variety of fun family attractions, Gatlinburg is guaranteed to have something for everyone in your group. To help you make the most of your vacation, Aunt Bug’s Cabin Rentals has put together the following tips for staying at our Gatlinburg family reunion cabins:

1. Choose the Right Size Cabin for Your Family

When it comes to picking the ideal cabin for your family reunion, sleeping arrangements are, of course, the most important factor. Before you browse our selection of cabins, get a final headcount from all of your relatives so you know exactly how much room you’ll need. Once you have a tally of how many couples, kids, and single people you’re expecting, you can pick the appropriate property for your family.

Here at Aunt Bug’s Cabin Rentals, we have a great selection of large cabins that sleep between 20 and 24 guests in 5 to 8 bedrooms. If you have any questions about how many people our cabins accommodate, or you would like a recommendation, don’t hesitate to give our friendly vacation specialists a call!

Our Gatlinburg family reunion cabins are loaded with entertainment that your group is sure to love! While you will definitely want to go out and explore the city, be sure to schedule some time for your family to have fun right at your cabin. Each vacation rental comes with different amenities, but here are some activities that you may want to enjoy at your home away from home:

  • Organize a movie night (with plenty of snacks!) in your cabin’s theater room.
  • Listen to music on the deck while you kick back in rocking chairs or the hot tub.
  • Have a billiards or foosball tournament in your cabin’s game room.
  • Take the whole family to the swimming pool and soak up the sun.
