5 Reasons Why Spring is the Perfect Time to Book a Gatlinburg Cabin Rental

Published Mar 27, 2024


From the gorgeous weather to the uncrowded attractions, spring is the best time to escape to a Gatlinburg cabin. See why a Smokies spring is so rejuvenating! 

1. The weather is ideal for cabin life in the Smokies.

With average daily highs in the 70s, spring is the sweet spot between winter’s chill and summer’s humid heat. Throw open the windows! You can get a delicious cross-breeze in a cabin that you can’t get in a stuffy hotel room. Fire up the grill and dine alfresco on the deck. In the cool spring evenings, immerse yourself in the bubbling hot tub while jets of warm water massage you.

2. Your cabin is a front row seat to nature’s spring show.

Choose your favorite natural setting: Colonial Properties offers cabins next to sparkling streams and on riverbanks. Cabins with forest views, so you can watch birds in the trees and deer in the woods. Cabins perched on hilltops, giving you expansive views all the way to the horizon.

3. Gatlinburg comes to life with spring events.

Stay in a cabin for the best of both worlds: You get privacy and quiet when you want them, yet you’re just minutes from events in town. 

Join the annual Wildflower Pilgrimage, with guided hikes and talks unveiling secrets of the mountains’ animals and plants. Stroll the downtown Strip to see dazzling displays of seasonal decor in the city’s Springfest. Bring the kids to Gatlinburg’s unique Children’s Trout Fishing Tournament. Discover your inner artisan at Hands On Gatlinburg, a weekend of art and craft workshops. 

4. A cabin makes the perfect home base for outdoor adventures.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is home to more than 800 miles of hiking trails. You’re never more than a few minutes from a trailhead. Not a hiker? How about rolling downhill inside a huge, clear ball? It’s called “zorbing,” and this is the only place in America where you can try this wild ride! Outdoor enthusiasts can tackle whitewater rafting, ziplining, golfing and much more. In spring, everything’s open and ready for fresh-air fun. 

5. Springtime is less crowded. 

Peak tourist times are summer and fall. Visitors fill restaurants and attractions. You might even encounter crowded trails. In the spring, enjoy solitude on the trails and easy entry to popular destinations like Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies or the Gatlinburg Space Needle
