GATLINBURG: Giving Thanks!

Subscribe to A Day In The Smokies!!Well, Thanksgiving is in just a couple days, so we wanted to share some of the things, related to the Smokies, that we are most thankful for!

Rent A Cabin With a Mountain View!!The Great Smoky Mountains!
Who wouldn’t want to be here in the Great Smoky Mountains! It is certainly a joy to live here, and to share them with all of you! Whether you’re driving through Pigeon Forge and seeing them over the next hill, or driving right up in them to spend a day enjoying their beauty first hand, those Great Smoky Mountains hold a piece of our hearts!

Find Summer Activities!!A Great Summer!
We are so thankful for a great summer! Tons of people came to enjoy the mountains and all the wonderful attractions here! Swimming, waterfalls, Splash Country, walking the Parkway, enjoying the ice cream from across the street after a great game of mini-golf! This summer was full of great times and wonderful memories!

Find Fall Activities!!A Gorgeous Fall!
The fall has been another wonderful time of year! Many of you came to enjoy the mountains as they donned their glorious splendor of reds, oranges, and golds! Hiking, Zip-lining, Dollywood, shopping! The fall was full of fun for us all!! Don’t forget to come back next fall!

Visit Cades Cove!!No Natural (or less than natural) Disasters!
Our hearts go out to those who have been hit recently by floods, oil spills, hurricanes, tornadoes, and any other disaster. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. And we are truly thankful that we have not been hit with any of that! Living in the mountains is a beautiful thing!

See some of our favorite bear pictures!The Bears!
We are thankful indeed for the bears! What amazing creatures they are! And so many of you have enjoyed coming and catching those hoped-for glances of bears! We’ve had sightings at nearly all of our cabins! They seem to enjoy doing their best to rip up our trash cans! And if that doesn’t work, for some reason they seem to enjoy our hot tubs almost as much as you do!

Read about the elk!Other Wildlife!
The Great Smoky Mountains are home to “some 66 species of mammals, over 200 varieties of birds, 50 native fish species, and more than 80 types of reptiles and amphibians.” Some of our favorites include the elk, the salamanders, and the synchronous fireflies! A couple of the best places to view these includes Cades Cove and the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail

Find Kid-friendly attractions!So Much To Do!
There is so much to do and to enjoy here in the Smokies! When each season comes, I find myself looking forward to that season’s unique benefits, and thinking to myself, this is the BEST time to come to the Smokies!! Whether it’s Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall, NOW is the BEST time to come!

Find pictures from previous tournaments, and information about our next tournament!A Great Golf Benefit!
This year we had a wonderful time at our 12th Annual ERA for MDA Golf Benefit, in which we were able to raise over $12,000 to send local Muscular Dystrophy kids to a camp where they can experience life without limits! We enjoyed two great meals, a wonderful golf game, and a hilarious auction, all of which raised money for MDA!

People here are so friendly! Why not move here!Friendly Neighbors!
One of the things I enjoy most about this area is the people! They are so loving and friendly! You may think that those of us who live here are resentful of tourists, but quite the contrary! It’s because of our honored guests that are we are able to make a living, and enjoy living here in the beautiful Smokies!! So the people are friendly to locals and tourists alike!

Awesome Customers!
We are so thankful for all our awesome customers! It is our joy to help you have the most wonderful experience possible when you come to the Smokies! We are especially thankful for all of you who keep coming back and invite your friends!

Happy Thanksgiving! Don’t forget to count your blessings!
