As travel restrictions are slowly lifting, many people feel that if they don’t get out of their houses and go somewhere new, they might end up going slightly crazy! We feel the same way, but the only thing giving us pause is knowing that we still need to do our part by maintaining social distancing. Fortunately, for those planning a trip to Gatlinburg in one of our Cabin Rental Store all-American rentals, this is not an issue you will have to worry about. We’ve created this guide to the more isolated Gatlinburg activities you can enjoy during your once in a lifetime Tennessee travels, allowing you to skip the crowds and still have fun!
The Beauty of the Tennessee Landscape
To be honest, you don’t even need to leave your back porch to enjoy the beauty of the landscape, but a good hike in the woods is always worth the extra effort! Unfortunately, many trails can be crowded with leaf peepers and hikers, but there are still a few places that will make you feel as if you have the world to yourself. The Middle Prong Trail in nearby Tremont is once such hike, leading you to a series of waterfalls cascading over rocks and a large variety of photo opportunities that will definitely be worthy of framing.
Drop a Line in Peace and Quiet
Fishing is a sport that is best enjoyed alone, and there are many bodies of water in the Gatlinburg area in which you can drop your line and enjoy some peaceful moments. From the West Prong Little Pigeon River to Le Conte Creek, there are a plethora of secluded areas to hide away. If you have children, there are actually streams where they can easily fish, including a section of the Dudley Creek from the Highway 441 Bridge downstream to the West Prong Little Pigeon River. A trout farm in the city is restocked every Thursday making that day the only day you can’t fish inside the city limits and fishing licenses are required.
Rent One of Our Secluded Cabins and Enjoy Gatlinburg Activities
Not every property we own is in the middle of a neighborhood; some of our cabins are located in secluded spots where it will feel as if you are the only person in the world! Spending all your spare time in these warm and welcoming places will be the highlight of an already fantastic getaway, but only if you reserve yours today!
During the hard times, we all learn where our strengths lie, but if you are a business owner, you probably already know that your strengths lie in the ones that come into work every day, facing uncertainty with smiling faces! Your employees are the secret to your success, and when it’s time to reward them, a Gatlinburg retreat and a stay in one of our luxurious corporate retreats is one way to ensure they will feel appreciated.
Sanitized and Stylish
The pandemic has changed the way we look at life, and while location, style, and entertainment options are important, your first obligation to your employees is providing them with a home that is sanitized and stylish. We go above and beyond the guidelines of safety and cleanliness, and when you and your employees walk in the door, they won’t have any reason to worry. All surfaces will be sparkling clean, sanitized, and disinfected, and in today’s world, there’s nothing else you should expect!
Comfortable is the New Stylish
Modern homes can be all harsh lines and minimalist bland, but we know that the secret to happy guests is comfort. We offer kitchens with plenty of space and dining areas that allow all guests to sit together enjoying a good meal, a fun game, or simply a quiet conversation over coffee. The living areas boast state-of-the-art televisions, plush furnishings, and views of the Tennessee landscape that never cease to take our breath away! Our bedrooms are designed to be quiet places to retreat from the noise of the world. Outside, depending on your choice of property, you may find hot tubs, fire pits, or in a few cases, a private pool, ensuring the fun continues every minute of every day of your exciting stay in Tennessee. Team building exercises will be that much more fun when conducted in front of a roaring fire and a large selection of your employees’ favorite beverages at hand!

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!

For those looking for a calmer undertaking, the lower part features calm waters and majestic scenery to enjoy!

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.

Life doesn’t always follow the neat and orderly timeline we have planned for ourselves: college graduation at 22; first real job soon after; meet, marry, and have kids by 30? If you’re lucky enough to enjoy all that in the order you deemed correct, we salute you, but most people’s timelines suffer a few glitches along the way, especially when it comes to meeting Mr. or Mrs. Right. There’s nothing wrong with flying solo, and when it’s time to plan a solo getaway to Gatlinburg, we have your back with this list of Gatlinburg activities geared to those traveling without a plus one!
Go for a Drive
For us, there is no
more pleasant experience than going for a long drive with no specific
destination in mind. Stopping at quirky little shops, grabbing a giant coke
from the old timey gas station where you fill up your car, and when traveling
along the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail or the Cades Cove Loop Road in Gatlinburg,
pulling over at especially scenic spots to take pictures of the beauty that
surrounds you! Road trips don’t necessarily need companions, and the landscape
of the Great Smoky Mountains is a breathtaking one you will need to see to
believe, so get in that car and drive!
Take an Ill-Fated Cruise – Gatlinburg Activities
Ok, we’re not
suggesting that you actually take a cruise in which sure danger looms; we are
advising you to visit the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge! Featuring artifacts
from the Titanic and offering the stories of the passengers that survived and
those that didn’t, this fascinating museum honors the memories of that ill-fated
trip in a variety of ways and your solo journey will be made all the better because
Table for 1?
Of all traveling
experiences, dining out can be the most intimidating, but it doesn’t need to be
in Gatlinburg. We’re a friendly bunch, and chances are your waiter will chat
your ears off as he takes your drink orders and tells you the specials, and
once you get your first taste of the perfectly prepared ribeye offered by The
Park Grill Gatlinburg, you’ll forget everything else! And when they bring your
Peanut Butter Mud Pie, you’ll discover yet another perk to dining out alone—you
don’t have to share your dessert with anybody!
Enjoy the Peace
Real life can be frantic and loud but coming home each evening to the peaceful surroundings of your Cabin Rental Store vacation escape will soothe the rough edges and bring peace to your fevered mind. Reserve yours today!
