To help you make the most of your trip, we have put together five tips for celebrating the holiday at our romantic cabins in Gatlinburg TN.
1. Choose a Cabin with a Jacuzzi Tub
Spending some time in a Jacuzzi tub is the ultimate romantic activity for a Valentine’s Day vacation in Gatlinburg. All of our 1 bedroom cabins, excluding Afternoon Delight and Storybook Romance, come with a delightful Jacuzzi, so you can enjoy a nice relaxing soak with your sweetheart.

2. Head to the Top of the Gatlinburg Space Needle
For incredible views of the city of Gatlinburg and the surrounding mountains, be sure to visit the Gatlinburg Space Needle. At 407 feet in the air, the Space Needle is the tallest vantage point in the downtown area. From atop the tower’s observation deck, you and your sweetheart will enjoy an unparalleled panoramic view of the area. While the vistas are incredible at any time of the day, we suggest going at night for Valentine’s Day, because the city’s glittering lights are sure to leave you breathless.
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a romantic dinner! The Gatlinburg area is full of award-winning restaurants that will be offering their finest fare for the holiday. Some of our favorite places to eat include:
Of course, if you would rather stay in, you can also prepare a meal right at your cabin! All of our romantic cabins in Gatlinburg TN come with fully furnished kitchens, so you can easily whip up your favorite dishes. There are a number of grocery stores in the area where you can pick up everything you’ll need, or you can bring ingredients from home, depending on how long your drive is.
4. Spend Some Time in Nature
During your Valentine’s Day vacation, be sure to enjoy the incredible natural beauty in Gatlinburg. Head to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to find over 800 miles of gorgeous hiking trails.

5. Just Take It Easy
While there can be a temptation to spend your entire vacation running from one thing to the next, it’s important to build in some time to simply relax. After all, Valentine’s Day is all about enjoying each other’s company, and your cabin provides the perfect location to do so. Sit out on the deck and admire the mountains, or share a few glasses of wine in front of the fireplace.
