I was asked to stay in a Gatlinburg Falls Resort cabin in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
Last week I packed up the kids and snagged my Mother-in-law for a girls getaway to the beautiful Smoky Mountains. I've stayed in the Pigeon Forge area before and only driven through Gatlinburg in passing. I've always wanted to visit to unwind and enjoy the view, well now I finally have.
We stayed in a cabin called Rainbows End in the Gatlinburg Falls Resort. The cabin was fabulous and more than I expected. It had two bedrooms, and two pull out couch beds to sleep a total of 8 people in the cabin. The cabin was fully equipped with everything we would need to make meals for the whole family. This cuts back on the cost that comes with eating out all the time.
The kids were excited when we went downstairs and found a pool and air hockey table. It was fun teaching them how to play pool. There were even short pool cues that they could use. But even more excited when they found the arcade games. That's why these cabins are such a great pick for families. Sometimes you just want to relax and unwind without hitting all the tourist attractions. The mountains are the perfect excuse.
The cabin was perfect for our family. We are already making plans to get more of our family together for a big family vacation. After we got settled in, we took a drive through town to get some ideas of places we wanted to visit. We set out sights on the Ripley's Aquarium and some mini golf. It was a short trip and we didn't want to cram it full of too much to do. Besides, there was plenty of fun to be had back at the cabin.
Like sitting in a hot tub and watching the sun paint the mountain tops. I can't even imagine how beautiful the Great Smoky Mountains when the leaves start to change to the golden yellows and fire reds.
It was a wonderful trip. We left when the rain rolled in, but we took a ride out to the Arts and Crafts community to see artist demonstrations of candle making, candy making, pottery, and woodworking. The kids got to see some really cool things.
