Top 5 Reasons to Stay In a Gatlinburg Cabin During The Winter

Everyone knows about the spring flowers, the subtropical summers and, the fall foliage season but, what about wintertime? Here are 5 of the best reasons to visit Gatlinburg and stay in a cabin during the wintertime.

#5: Less crowds. Besides the Christmas and New Year Holiday time frame, wintertime offers access to Gatlinburg and The Great Smoky Mountains National Park with very little traffic on the roads or sidewalks. So, it is much easier to shop your favorite shops.

#4: More dramatic views in the national park. With no leaves on the trees you can see much further through the forest when hiking and when weather is cold enough some of the water falls become beautiful natural ice formations.

#3: Best deals on lodging. For now, the beauty of the area in the wintertime is still somewhat of a secret. So, less demand for lodging = lower rates.

#2: Winterfest Lighting and Decorations. Gatlinburg, along with Pigeon Forge and Sevierville, has invested in millions of dollars worth of holiday and winter lighting and displays that are not taken down until March 1st.

#1: The fireplace in your cabin and the 102 degree hot tub on the deck feel much better when it is cold outside.
