Vacationing in a Gatlinburg Cabin

For many decades Gatlinburg has been a favorite resort getaway for both families and couples. Located in the Smoky Mountains of eastern Tennessee, Gatlinburg sits at the entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. At the foot of Mt. LeConte, Gatlinburg is only a short walk from streams, woods, and mountains.

Cabins have a special tradition in Gatlinburg. The first cabin was built by the Ogle family in 1802 and is now open to all visitors. Some cabins in Gatlinburg hark back to earliest days of frontier settlers. These wooden cabins evoke a rustic connection with American history and the beautiful natural environment.

There are thousands of cabins to choose from. Although the predominant style is the traditional log cabin, other styles range from Swiss chalets to upscale modern wooden condominiums. Gatlinburg also offers various hotel and motel opportunities, geared both towards families and conference attendees.

Originally founded in the early 1800s as White Oaks, Gatlinburg was just a sleepy residential town until the growth of its lumber industry in the early 1900s. The creation of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in 1934 added to the demand for visitor services. Gatlinburg was officially incorporated in 1945 and has since become a premier four-season vacation destination.

In recent years Gatlinburg has become even more popular as both a vacation spot for families and a romantic getaway for lovers. Ideally located, Gatlinburg is within a day's drive for fifty percent of American citizens. Vacation options include single and double occupancies, larger family-oriented plans, and exclusive wedding and honeymoon packages.

In addition to vacation rentals, there are also many opportunities to purchase a Gatlinburg cabin. Ownership of rental real estate is an advantageous method for generating supplemental income and long-term financial independence. And as the real estate market continues to boom, a tucked-away cabin in Gatlinburg becomes a valuable asset.
