However, these views are accentuated during the winter months because you will be able to see further into the distance.

Unlike in the summer and spring, your view won’t be blocked by a thick forest of leaves. Although these views are beautiful in themselves, it is always nice to be able to widen your view to include more of the scenic beauty of the area, especially when it involves a clear sight of snow-capped mountains.

Even though it is a little cooler outside, you can still enjoy spending the evening relaxing on the private back deck of your Gatlinburg log cabin by choosing to take advantage of the outdoor hot tub found there. Perfect for unwinding after a long day of exploring or simply enjoying the breathtaking views we mentioned earlier, these outdoor hot tubs are one of our favorite features our cabins offer in the winter.

The best part is as the temperature drops outside, you can turn the temperature up in the hot tub to maintain a comfortable balance.

One of the things we love about being located in Gatlinburg is we get to enjoy a comfortable temperament throughout the year, including the winter. Although the outside temperatures are a little cooler this time of year compared to others, it is still significantly warmer than other possible travel destinations.

Here, the weather doesn’t normally drop below freezing. The temperatures usually fluctuate between the mid-30s to low-50s, and occasionally we will see a day or two in the mid to upper-60s.

This is the perfect weather if you still want to get out and explore during while you stay in your Gatlinburg log cabin because it is not so cold you will feel uncomfortable walking around and being outside. Instead, you can throw on a heavier coat and enjoy your day.
