4 Tips for an Unforgettable Summer Getaway at Our Cabins for Rent in Pigeon Forge Tenn

We can’t think of anywhere we would rather spend our summer vacation than Pigeon Forge, Tennessee! Located at the doorstep of the Great Smoky Mountains, Pigeon Forge offers some of the country’s most stunning natural beauty and a wide variety of family friendly attractions and entertainment. When you stay at one of our cabins for rent in Pigeon Forge Tenn, you will be minutes away from all of the best things to do in the area. Here are four tips for having a fantastic summer vacation in the Smokies:

1. Stay Cool with a Trip to Splash Country or Just Relax at the Pool

Pigeon Forge is home to one of the nation’s best water parks: Dollywood’s Splash Country. Featuring 27 different water slides, Splash Country is the perfect place for some wet and wild fun. The water park is located right next door to Dollywood, and you can take advantage of a great “3 Days, 2 Parks”deal, which is ideal for guests who plan on making return trips to these wonderful attractions.

If you’re looking for a more relaxing (and cost free) way to beat the heat, you can go for a swim at one of our resort pools. When you stay at one of our Pigeon Forge cabins with pool access, your kids will never be bored!

2. Go Horseback Riding and Ziplining for FreeTwo women horseback riding in the forest.

Here at Aunt Bug’s, we believe that summer is the perfect time for an outdoor adventure! That’s why guests at our cabins for rent in Pigeon Forge Tenn get free horseback riding and ziplining vouchers. Enjoy a scenic trail ride at Jayell Ranch and soar through the sky with a canopy tour at Adventure Ziplines. We provide one complimentary ticket to each attraction, with additional tickets available for purchase at the gate.

3. Choose a Cabin on the River

There is nothing more relaxing than staying at one of our Pigeon Forge cabins on the river. Sitting on your deck and listening to the soothing sounds of the water is guaranteed to put you in the “vacation state of mind”. Having a riverfront picnic is another one of our favorite summertime activities.

4. Enjoy Ice Cream from the Old Mill Creamery or the Apple Valley Creamery

Going out for ice cream is a summertime tradition, and Pigeon Forge has no shortage of excellent places to grab a cone. The Old Mill Creamery is a classic parlor with a variety of specialty ice creams you won’t find anywhere else, such as Biscuits ‘n Honey and Oat Mill Cream Pie. Located in the popular Apple Barn Village, the Apple Valley Creamery is another awesome ice cream spot. We recommend ordering one of their apple, peach, or blackberry cobblers with a big scoop of ice cream, or trying one of their famous milkshakes.
