We make planning your group vacation to Gatlinburg fun and easy. Even though you may be responsible for choosing the right place to stay, finalizing the guest list and coordinating travel schedules, we’re here to help make the process even easier. Read our useful hints on how to prepare for your vacation.
Where to Begin
Just like any other trip, the first step to planning a Gatlinburg cabin vacation for a group is to find the right place to stay. You want to look for a rental that offers both a relaxing atmosphere and a variety of fun things to do to keep your guests entertained. This can include high-speed internet, cable or satellite tv, arcade games, pool tables, game rooms, outdoor hot tubs and more!
You also want to find a cabin that offers a reasonably open floor plan that allows most of your group to interact with one another during their stay. This includes places to sit to enjoy meals together, meetings or any other activities you may have planned for when you are spending time at the cabin.
Finding Things to Do in the Smoky Mountains
Now that you know where to stay, it is time to begin planning what you are going to do once you get here.
Pro Traveler Tip: Send out a quick survey to the guests that you’ve invited. Include a list of restaurants, attractions, shows and other fun things to do in the area and have them choose which activities they’d like to visit. This will help you cut down on any questions you may have when trying to plan the trip.
