Top 5 Money Savers When Staying at Affordable Cabins in the Smokies

Cherished memories aren’t expensive. They’re about the fun, quality time you spend with those you love – there’s no price tag to be attached. Vacations are an ideal example of exactly that, especially when you stay at one of our affordable cabins in the Smokies. That’s why we’ve put together a list of five must-know money savers to remember when you’re staying with us. We want you to have the most memorable and cost-effective family getaway possible, so read all about them below:

1. Smoky Mountain Cabin Specials and Attraction Discounts

By staying at one of our rentals, you have access to several money-saving opportunities all combined into one fun and memorable cabin stay. We have phenomenal seasonal and year-round specials that you can take advantage of while knowing that you’re staying at one of the best cabins in the Smokies. We offer 10 percent off to military families and a free night’s stay following lodging with us for six nights in a row. Be sure to check out our seasonal Gatlinburg cabin specials, too, as they change regularly.

The savings we offer to guests don’t stop there, though. We also offer savings on Smoky Mountain attractions by offering one free ticket every night of your stay with our Free Family Fun Pass. Tickets are available for family favorites like the Country Tonite Music Show, exciting whitewater rafting with Big Creek Expeditions, Adventure Park Ziplines, Legacy Mountain Ziplines, Ripley’s Davy Crockett Mini Golf, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies and the Lumberjack Feud Dinner Show.

2. Vacation as a Group

When you vacation in a group, you can enjoy the company of several others while also splitting the cost of your cabin several ways. And no matter how many friends and family members you hope to bring along, we have plenty of large Gatlinburg group cabins for you to choose from. The more the merrier, right?

3. Cooking at the CabinMom and son cooking at Affordable Cabins in the Smokies

A great to save a little extra money while you’re on vacation is to prepare your food in-cabin. While we don’t want you to miss out on all the mouth-watering dining possibilities in the area, choosing just a couple meals to enjoy at the cabin during your vacation can result in major savings. And because our cabins are all equipped with full kitchens, there’s no limit to the delicacies you can prepare for your in-cabin meals. Don’t want to deal with hassle of groceries? No problem – you can have your groceries ready and waiting for you upon arrival with Gatlinburg cabin grocery delivery services. Eating in has never been easier!

4. Sights to See

By choosing to stay at one of our affordable cabins in the Smokies, you have all the best sights and entertainment right at your fingertips – and all of it is free! The Great Smoky Mountains National Park offers hiking trails with breathtaking waterfalls, historic structures and Smoky Mountain wildflowers in addition to several other walking trails throughout the area. All you need is your phone – to take pictures with, of course! – and a bit of adventure for days of fun excursions. Downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are both free to explore and enjoy, as well. But be sure to keep a bit of room in your vacation budget while you’re there. The hand-pulled mountain taffy and hand-dipped candy apples are to die for.
