4th of July in Gatlinburg fireworks

Plan a 4th of July Escape to Gatlinburg

Isn’t it wonderful to be able to get out there and travel the United States once again? After the last few months, we at The Cabin Rental Store are equally excited to be able to explore and even more excited to welcome our guests back into the fold! If you haven’t made any plans to travel, we’re happy to tell you that many people are getting an extended weekend for 4th of July in Gatlinburg, and our cabins are ready and waiting to be occupied once more. This guide to all the fun you can have celebrating our nation’s birthday in our all-American city is just a little something we’ve put together to entice you to visit!

First of All, This 4th of July in Gatlinburg, There WILL Be Fireworks!

Usually we would end with the fireworks, but in a world where many shows have been cancelled, the news that fireworks are still going to be launched from the Space Needle makes us gleeful! Starting at 11 PM, the skies will be alight with a fireworks extravaganza guaranteed to bring tears of joy to your eyes, even if the annual midnight parade has been cancelled. The nearby town of Pigeon Forge is also planning on having their annual fireworks show, beginning at 9:30 PM. In respect to the ongoing virus issues, drive-in participation is recommended!

Hang Out with Dolly

Ok, we’re not really suggesting you spend the day with Dolly Parton herself, but we do think a 4th of July spent at Dollywood is the perfect way to celebrate our nation’s birthday! Riding rides, watching shows, and eating that delicious fair food makes us happy, and if you’re worried it may be too hot, Dollywood’s Splash Country offers the perfect way to keep cool! Offering “death defying” slides, lazy rivers, wave pools, and a special area for the tiny tots in your group, the only thing missing is a sugary frozen treat—oh wait! Berries N Cream has ice cream and milkshakes for your summer pleasure!

Pool Party in Your Holiday Hideaway

Many of our luxury getaways come with private pools, both indoors and outdoors, and nothing screams America louder than a good old fashioned pool party! Pick up some barbecue from Hungry Bear BBQ, 490 East Parkway, whip together your favorite patriotic cocktails and slather on the sunscreen as you prepare for a day of fun in the sun. A mermaid lemonade, made with lemonade, Blue Curacao, and rum is the perfect refreshment for this holiday; add some maraschino cherries and little umbrellas for a red, white, and blue treat!

Book a Clean and Spacious Rental Property in Gatlinburg

The first half of 2020 has definitely not turned out the way we thought it might, as the pandemic changes the way we live our lives. The good news is that many of us used our self-quarantine time to research vacations we would take when the world borders began to reopen, and if your thoughts, dreams, and plans are leading you to Gatlinburg, we thought we would take a few moments and tell you why the Cabin Rental Store is the only place you should consider for your Gatlinburg vacation accommodations! 

Sanitized for Your Safety on Your Next Gatlinburg Vacation

The pandemic has taught us a lot, including the difference between sanitizing and disinfecting and knowing when you need to do one or the other (or both!), but it has also shown us the importance of having our own spaces, and that includes while traveling. You could stay in a cramped and sterile hotel room, but why would you want to when the Cabin Rental Store offers properties that are spacious, stylish, and sanitized for your health? From the linens on the bed to the throws on the sofas, furnishings, appliances big and small, and electronics, every inch of every surface has been cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected! Even our housekeeping staff wears masks, disposable gloves, and is instructed to sanitize and clean whatever devices they may be using to get their boogie on while preparing the property between uses. Upon your arrival, you can turn on all the lights, channel surf with the remote controls, and turn the air conditioning down to artic temps without fear, knowing we’ve paid attention to these areas in the home as well. Sit out on the back deck on sanitized deck chairs and enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets over the Tennessee landscape, content in the understanding that we’ve made this area safe for your health as well. Every night, as you shut the rest of the world out with the closing of your bedroom door, you can sleep deeply and dream of all the adventures you will face during your Gatlinburg explorations with no fear, no worries, and no insecurities.

Become a Part of the Cabin Rental Store Family

Our rental properties aren’t just places for strangers to stay; they are homes for families to live in, albeit only temporarily, and every guest that stays with us becomes a part of OUR family! Reserve yours today and join in the fun.

Gatlinburg Water Activities to Enjoy

As the mercury rises and the days grow longer, we’re all waiting with bated breath for the most magical time of the year, and no, it’s not Christmas! Summer is just a few short weeks away, and after being cooped up inside for weeks, everyone we know is ready to spread their wings and fly! If your recent downtime was used to plan the Gatlinburg vacation of a lifetime, we are excited to offer this guide to Gatlinburg water activities that will ensure that every minute of your Tennessee trip is filled with fun and excitement!

Dollywood Splash Country

There’s no better way to keep cool on a hot summer’s day than with a visit to a water park, and Dollywood Splash Country is one of our favorite places on earth. Offering water slides with “death defying” drops, lazy rivers, and wave pools that replicate the ebb and flow of the ocean, Splash Country is no ordinary day at the park! Visitors with younger children will appreciate The Cascades portion with its misters, bubblers, and tadpole sized slides that allow them to mimic the fun their older siblings are having while remaining perfectly safe.

Did You Pack Your Tackle?

If there were a list of the top 100 fishing spots in America, we’re sure that Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountain region would be pretty close to the top of that list! From ponds in parks to rivers that run through our country paradise, there’s plenty of water sources and nearly unlimited amounts of fish to be caught. If you forgot to pack your tackle, never fear; The Smoky Mountain Angler at 469 Brookside Village Way has everything you need to make sure your day on the river is absolutely perfect!

Rafting on the Pigeon River

Your children deserve to discover the thrill of whitewater rafting, but if you’re afraid for their safety, Pigeon River Rafting along the Lower Pigeon Gorge is offered by the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC). Perfect for kids 3 years and older and adults of all ages, the rapids are mild and the breaks at safe swimming areas will bring a smile to your child’s face you’ll never forget!

Never Far from H2O With These Gatlinburg Water Activities

There may be some days during your stay that you really don’t want to leave the comfort of your Cabin Rental Store escape but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the water! Many of our cabins come with private pools and even more offer community pools for at home aqua adventures. Reserve yours today and discover the many Gatlinburg water activities waiting for you!

CLIMBWORKS in Gatlinburg

Gatlinburg Outdoor Activities to Enjoy

Who else is ready to escape the four walls of their homes and get outside and play? Raise your hands if you too are ready to shed the chains of self-quarantine and raise them even higher if your plans are for an upcoming trip to Gatlinburg when you do! Yes, we can see there are quite a few of you preparing for a journey to our hometown and a stay in one of our comfy cabins, and because we know you are ready to simply be outside, we’ve created this guide to the many Gatlinburg outdoor activities you can enjoy during your unforgettable Tennessee travels!

Thrilling Adventures

Whitewater Rafting is one of those adventures that sounds scarier than it really is, and when you visit the Gatlinburg area in the summer, you’ll understand exactly what we mean! Smoky Mountain Outdoors offers thrilling trips down the upper part of the Pigeon River with rapids that can reach Stage 3 or Stage 4. For those looking for a calmer undertaking, the lower part features calm waters and majestic scenery to enjoy!

CLIMBWORKS in Gatlinburg

Ziplining is one of the latest trends for fun, and CLIMBWORKS in Gatlinburg, located just across the street from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, features the thrills you’ve been seeking! From the side-by-side Mountaintop Zipline Tour where you and your partner can fly together to the Treetop Zipline Tour that keeps you flying for over two hours, the cost of these adventures start at $89 per person, but the thrill you will feel as you fly above some of the most beautiful landscape you’ve ever seen is absolutely worth every penny!

Closer to the Ground Ventures

Not everyone is a daredevil, and some of us prefer our adventures to be a little tamer and a lot closer to the ground, but that’s ok! For those who prefer to run mild instead of wild, a horseback tour of the Gatlinburg is an adventure everyone will want to try! Sugarlands Riding Stables, located at the Gatlinburg Entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, is one of the first places you should visit. Offering individual trail rides and group rides that allow your entire family to participate (as long as they over 5 years of age and under 225 pounds), this quiet adventure will be one that you never want to end!

Come Home to the Cabin Rental Store

At the end of every day, coming home to the comfort and style of our beautiful Cabin Rental Store luxury cabins will be an experience that will make you forget all the bad stuff that has taken place in this first year of the new decade. Reserve yours today!

Summer Gatlinburg Activities to Look Forward to

Does it ever seem as if your entire year is spent focused on your annual summer vacation? If you’re not planning the time, choosing the destination, and renting your vacation home away from home, you’re talking about it to all your friends, boarding the plane and taking the first steps into your summer journey away from home. Once the vacation is over, you find yourself looking at pictures, finding places to store the trinkets you purchased, and of course, telling your friends, family, and neighbors all about your adventures. Some trips may be better than others, such as your upcoming visit to Gatlinburg, but every vacation helps restore peace and order in the cluttered recesses of your soul. And as summer comes closer, this guide to the fun you can have in one of our Tennessee homes will ensure that this vacation is one you’ll remember happily for years to come!

Under the Sea

Gatlinburg may not be on the ocean, but if you and your family are interested in learning about life under the sea, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies at 88 River Road offers the perfect opportunity to do so! Watch live dive shows, visit the Shark Lagoon, and walk under water without having to hold your breath! Thick glass walls separate you from the sharks and fishes as they swim around and above you—no getting wet necessary! Offering penguin shows and stingray bays, your day at the aquarium will be one you never forget.

Look to the Skies

Seattle isn’t the only place in the United States with a Space Needle; the Gatlinburg Space Needle offers unparalleled views of the Tennessee landscape that is made even more beautiful when fully in bloom during the summer! Standing over 400 feet tall and located at 115 Historic Nature Trail, the views of the Great Smoky Mountains from this height will take your breath away!

“Juice” for the Over 21 Crowd

An excellent glass of wine is one of life’s simpler pleasures, and the varieties offered at the Smoky Mountain Winery never fail to please! Featuring award-winning bottles of your favorite type of grape, the dry wines featured here are always a nice treat, especially in an area where the sweeter wines are generally preferred. The South loves their sweet teas, sweet treats, and of course, their sweet wines!

Summer Moments With Gatlinburg Activities

However you choose to spend your summer days with Gatlinburg activities, spending your summer nights in one of The Cabin Rental Store’s seasonal escapes will be the best decision you’ve made this year. Reserve yours today!
