With April right around the corner, now is the time to start making plans for Easter. Why not do something different and special this year, like renting a large group cabin in Gatlinburg? Stony Brook Cabins has many large cabin rentals throughout the Smokies surrounding Gatlinburg, an idyllic setting for a large gathering with friends and family. Get the most out of your Easter in Gatlinburg with these six tips below:
- Select Your Group Cabin
We have many cabins with five or more bedrooms. These cabins can sleep anywhere from a dozen to more than 20 guests, so you don’t have to worry about not having enough space. You can choose a cabin that has the amenities that your group will enjoy most, like game rooms, hot tubs, fully equipped kitchens, large screen TVs and more. We even have pet-friendly cabins in Gatlinburg, so Fido doesn’t have to be excluded from the Easter festivities.
- Plan a Traditional Easter Dinner
A large cabin with a kitchen enables you to prepare a holiday meal just as you could at home. Kitchens come with all of the appliances you need to prepare your favorite dishes, and you can easily stock up on all of the groceries you need at local stores. Getting everyone together for an Easter dinner can be one of the highlights of your vacation, and with our fully equipped kitchen, you can even prepare Aunt Emily’s favorite country ham or your famous apple pie for dessert.
- Enjoy a Hike in the Mountains
Whether you’re looking to enjoy a short stroll or challenge yourself with a longer hike, The Great Smoky Mountains offers endless trails and outdoor exercise opportunities. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park – part of the Appalachian Trail – is nearby, giving you access to some of the nation’s most pristine wilderness. This time of the year is one of the best to enjoy the outdoors in this region. Hiking and walking will also help work off the second helping you enjoyed during Easter dinner.
- Take Advantage of Your Free Family Fun Pass
The Gatlinburg area has many interesting and unique attractions. When you rent a large group cabin in Gatlinburg, you will get a pass that provides you with discounts and free admission to many of these attractions. One pass per day for zip lining at Adventure Park Zip Lines, white water rafting on the Upper or Lower Pigeon River, Country Tonite Music Show, and Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies are all included. Your Free Family Fun Pass will help you save money as you enjoy the area’s spectacular entertainment and activities.
- Enjoy the Free Entertainment in Your Cabin
Your large group cabin in Gatlinburg will provide your crew with many hours of free entertainment. If there are pool players in your group, be sure to choose a cabin with a pool table and organize your own tournament. You can also schedule movie nights. Many cabins also have arcade games, which will be fun for both kids and adults. These and other activities will ensure that you and your companions never run out of things to do in your cabin.
If you are an early riser, you can attend the annual Sunrise Service at Ober Gatlinburg. This is an nondenominational Easter Sunday service that takes place at the top of Mount Harrison. You can catch a free tram ride from downtown Gatlinburg to the top of the mountain. You also have the option of driving. This is an opportunity to celebrate the holiday in a beautiful natural setting.
We’re certain your Easter in a large group cabin in Gatlinburg will be one to remember. Call Stony Brook Cabins today to get your planning underway!
