Do you still need help finding a cabin? Here are a few tips:
For example, if you are bring 6 people on vacation but two of the vacationers are toddlers, you may want to consider renting 2 bedroom cabin with a sleeper sofa because it will often be less expensive than a 3 bedroom cabin. Then follow these links: 1-2 Bedroom Cabins or 3-5 Bedroom Cabins.

3. What amenities does your family want? Cabins often offer amenities like a whirlpool tub, outdoor hot tub, pool table, mountain views, pool and clubhouse access. Decide on your amenities, and it will be easier to make a cabin decision.
4. How far are you willing to drive? There are lots of cabins that are only 3-7 minutes from Downtown Gatlinburg, but if you’re on a budget, you might want to consider cabins that are a little further outside of town. Cabins that are located 8 to 15 minutes out of Downtown are often cheaper. There are advantages to being further out: less traffic, less noise and better access to Great Gatlinburg Day Trips.
5. Do you own a 4WD? During the winter months, Gatlinburg does get snow and ice, and while there are lots of cabins not located at steep elevations, some are not accessible without 4-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle during snow, ice and other inclement weather. Make sure you ask your reservationist because cabin companies do not give refunds for inclement weather.
If all else fails, ask a professional. Most cabin rental companies are staffed by local Gatlinburg residents who often have the inside scoop on everything from the best local pizza to where to buy film. Just ask. ERA In The Smokies is available to help 1-800-309-0277.
