Smoky Mountains at sunsetJust a few days away from work and schedules can benefit families who feel rushed and stressed, and a vacation can even help individuals gain a feeling of well-being and a spark of creativity. Choosing to take a vacation where the primary focus is relaxation and rejuvenation can leave you feeling ready to take on work, functions and meetings again with a renewed sense of purpose. For a happier and healthier family vacation, Pigeon Forge cabin rentals company Stony Brook Lodging offers secluded vacation homes conveniently located to make the most of the time you have in the Smoky Mountains.

Visiting the mountains and breathing in the fresh air can immediately make you feel a little freer and a little healthier. Our cabins are nestled into the mountains, so there’s plenty of space to sit outside and take in the stunning views without a distraction or disruption. Though these hideaways are somewhat secluded, guests are still near Pigeon Forge, so there’s no need to spend a lot of time in the car.

When the family is ready to venture outside, there’s no better place for a healthy activity than the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. No matter your fitness level or age, there are hiking trails for everyone. Bicycling through Cades Cove is another healthy activity for the family to enjoy together. Not only will it burn calories and excess energy, everyone will love seeing the gorgeous mountain and valley views up close.

For visitors who want to spend time outdoors without much exertion, auto touring is a popular way to see the sights. With nearly 400 miles of road in the National Park, auto touring is one of the best ways to see the historic sites and panoramic views. Most roads around the National Park have pull-offs, so you can stretch your legs and take photos at your own convenience.

For an afternoon of pampering instead of nature-viewing, the Spa at Pine Mountain is another beautiful and relaxing spot for a massage, facial or pedicure. Whether you’re planning to see every attraction in Pigeon Forge or sit on the cabin porch all week, there’s nowhere better than the Smoky Mountains to spend time together, relax and forget about all your cares.
