Planning a vacation for your family is not for the faint of heart! There are a lot of moving pieces when it comes to making the most out of your travel, and a big part of that is choosing the right place to stay during your trip. I recently had the opportunity to spend the weekend in one of Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Cabins, and I found there are a lot of great benefits to choosing one of their properties.
A Cabin is Most Like Home
One of the best, and most obvious to me, benefits of staying in a Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Cabin is that it is a lot like home. Whether you choose a two-bedroom cabin or a large-enough- space to sleep 32, everyone can have their own space with plenty of bathrooms to go around. Cabins also have the benefit of a full kitchen, making it easy for guests to save money on the food portion of their vacation.
The Views Can’t Be Beat
My family’s favorite part about visiting the Great Smoky Mountains is the incredible views we can see from the comfort of our cabin living room or porch. Fall, spring, summer or winter, it really doesn’t matter the season because the forest puts on a show each time we visit. For the best views, you do have to drive up into the mountain somewhat, but once you arrive and sit on your porch, that view makes it all worth it. Can’t get that in a hotel on the Parkway!
In addition to the feel and space of home, there are other great amenities when staying in a cabin. Every cabin has:
- Jacuzzi Hot Tubs
- Hot Tub on Deck
- Community Swimming Pool
- Internet Access
- Picnic Pavilion
- Children’s Playground
- Charcoal Grills
*There are also ADA accessible properties.
Dollywood Park Benefits
Often, there are ticket package specials when you book. Make sure to check the website for current offers. A standing offer includes a length-of-stay ticket when booking a Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Cabin. This ticket allows guests to visit Dollywood the entire length of their cabin reservation for the cost of a one-day visit to Dollywood. Talk about a cost savings!
TimeSaver passes can also be purchased with a cabin reservation for $5 off the regular price of a TimeSaver, and guests can experience a select ride or attraction early each Saturday morning.
Finally, cabin guests with tickets to Dollywood or Dollywood’s Splash Country can expect free parking! At Dollywood, that parking is in the Preferred Lot—if you’ve ever parked there before, you know that’s a treat!
Benefits for Guests Without Tickets
Lastly, even if cabin guests do not have tickets to Dollywood’s theme park or water park, there are benefits that include everyone! Throughout the year, Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Cabins are able to offer discounts to various other Pigeon Forge area attractions. Some of these offers may include discounts to Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner and Show or other Pigeon Forge dinner theaters. Be sure to ask what offers are available when you call to book your Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Cabin.
