The Cabin Advantage -- Advantages of Staying in a Vacation Cabin

The best way to vacation is in a cabin! Cabin advantages include:

1. Privacy
2. Great amenities
3. Fully furnished kitchens
4. You can share the cost of a cabin with another couple or family members
5. On cool nights, you can relax by a cozy fireplace
6. Have a family reunion with everyone in one location
7. Have a church retreat
8. Have a corporate retreat
9. Enjoy the morning or evening air while sitting on your deck
10. Prepare your own meals

You can choose from a family-size cabin, honeymoon cabin, rustic cabin, luxury cabin, or a million dollar luxury cabin with indoor pool and indoor media room. You can stay in a beautifully decorated, fully furnished cabin for less than you would pay for a chain hotel. We can help you find the perfect cabin for your special vacation getaway.

Many of our cabins have hot tubs, Jacuzzi's, game rooms with pool table (sometimes foosball, arcade games, and air hockey, too), big screen or flat-screen TV's, fully equipped kitchen, breathtaking mountain or ocean views, DVD player, cable or satellite TV, BBQ grill on the deck, and more. Many cabins are now pet friendly.

Some Cabin Amenities:

• Great mountain or ocean views or a wooded setting. Sometimes you might find a cabin by a stream or mountain river.
• You will have plenty of room.
• You can enjoy a cozy fireplace on those cold nights
• A Hot Tub on the deck will provide you with relaxation in the mountain air. Although hot tubs are used year 'round during any weather, they are really great on a cool morning or evening. A morning in a hot tub will invigorate you, and an evening time in the hot tub will relax you for a good night's sleep.
• Pet friendly cabins. Yes, many cabins are now pet friendly - so now you can bring the entire family on vacation.
• Many cabins now have Internet access.
• Most cabins have washer and dryer.
• In a cabin, you can cook your own food or order delivery service where you can choose from pizza, steak sandwiches, fully catered dinners, or full meals delivered to your door or available for pickup. Cooking in your cabin will help you stretch your vacation dollars.
• Most cabins have security systems. Please be sure to arm the security system when checking out of your cabin.
• Most master bedrooms have a Jacuzzi (romantic and relaxing).
• Some cabins have an indoor media room, complete with either leather or rumble seats, and a big theatre screen. Make a day of watching your favorite movies. Be sure to bring along popcorn and candy.
• Smoky Mountain cabins range from a one bedroom cabin for a romantic getaway to cabins that sleep between 42 to 64 people (Moose Hollow Lodge).
• Some handicapped accessible cabins are available. Some of these cabins have only a grab bar in the bathroom and a wheelchair ramp into the cabin. You will want to inquire when making your reservation as to whether or not the cabin has an accessible shower stall. There are a few cabins that have either an elevator or a lift (Bear Lake Lodge and Grandview Lodge are 2 that I am aware of).
• You will likely see a bear around your cabin. Please do not feed the bears, and keep all garbage out of reach.

Things to Know Before You Book:

• Seasonal Rates apply. You will pay less during the off-season which varies from state to state. You will pay higher rates for Christmas, New Year's, and Valentine's Day or the weekend close to Valentine's Day. You will pay more during the season which also varies from state to state. Rates in October (Fall colors) in mountainous regions are peak season rates and are the highest.

• Most cabins are fully furnished. All linens are included. Firewood is furnished. All you need to bring is food. If your cabin has a charcoal grill, you will need to bring charcoal.

• Most cabins are managed by a rental company. When you call to make your reservation, let them know what you would like in a cabin and the type of location you prefer (secluded, private, mountain views, close to the action, etc.). Remember if you want mountain views, you will have to pay the price of driving up winding mountain roads to get to your cabin. You are not going to get a mountain view from a cabin that is located in the valley. The rental company will help you find a cabin that is right for you. If you prefer a resort environment with swimming pool, day spa or in-cabin therapeutic massage, and wedding chapel, there are great resorts to choose from.

• Cabin rates range from $95 to $300 per night for a one bedroom, $125 to $400 for a two or three bedroom, and up to $2,875 for the largest cabins that sleep over 50 people.

• Length of stay: Most cabins require a two night stay; however, most require a three to four night stay during Holidays or peak season.

• Extra fees: Ask about extra fees before booking. You may be required to pay a cleaning fee between $45 to $100, a pet fee, reservation charge, or a hot tub cleaning fee ($25 to $50).

* Cancellation policies: Ask about the cancellation policy when booking your reservation. Most rental companies post their policies online.
