Even though each of spacious Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg cabins offered by Gatlinburg Cabin Rentals come equipped with their own fully-stocked kitchens, it may be nice to not have to worry about cooking one night during your trip. That is why we suggest you and your group consider dining out at one of the many buffets or family-style Gatlinburg restaurants in the area.

What we love most about this dining option for families and visitors enjoying a large group vacation in Gatlinburg is that they still offer that home-cooked feel, but you don’t have to worry about dealing with all the clean up later. It’s a win-win situation!
