Trying to plan a trip with a new baby or toddler but don’t know where to start? Parents can sometimes be overwhelmed by the amount of things they need to take for their babies on vacation, especially in winter. When traveling to the Smokies and staying in one of Stony Brook’s Gatlinburg cabin rentals, you can forget stress because we provide homey essentials and have created a winter checklist for families with little ones.
Make sure to bring more diapers, wipes and onesies than you think you’ll need. Coats, mittens and blankets are a must-have if you’re planning to visit the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. There are toddler and baby-friendly hiking trails, so families can pack a hiking backpack with essentials or take a walk on one of the shorter trails. For active families, cold weather necessities will allow
Mix and Match
This works for kids and adults. Grouping clothes that will mix and match easily will make packing much easier and lighter. If you have a child who runs through clothes faster than you can find something clean, Stony Brook’s Gatlinburg cabin rentals come with a washer and dryer, so you won’t have to haul any dirty items home.
Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are filled with fun family activities. Choosing which attractions your family will visit can make packing easier as well. Many families enjoy Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies because it is interactive for toddlers, and babies can enjoy the swimming fish and colorful lights. Ripley’s Aquarium is located in the heart of Gatlinburg, so you can easily visit other attractions without spending much time in the cool air. Dollywood, Dixie Stampede, and the National Park are other family favorites in the Smokies.
Stony Brook also offers baby packages for families staying in their Gatlinburg cabin rentals with small children. From a booster seat to a Pack ‘N Play, Stony Brook can have baby items delivered to your cabin when you arrive.
If you’re ready to begin a Smoky Mountain adventure, Stony Brook has an inventory of one to seven bedroom Gatlinburg cabin rentals with a variety of amenities. Call our reservation specialists today at 1-800-633-5652. They’ll be happy to help you choose a cabin and reserve any of the baby packages for your trip.
