Cypress Lodge - Gatlinburg Falls Resort

#1 – The Cabin – Cypress Lodge

With over 400 cabins to choose from, you can have enough room for a solo trip to a very large group. The cabin sizes range from 1-bedroom to an amazing 18-bedroom called the Smoky Mountain Mansion! We stayed in a newly finished (November 2017) 4-bedroom called Cypress Lodge.

One of my favorite features about the cabin is the layout. When you walk through the front door, you enter an open kitchen/dining room/living room area. It enables your group to cook and have a conversation without being crowded in one small space. The game room and theater are located downstairs. It was nice to keep the bulk of the noise from the kids contained to that area.

#3 – Quality Family Time!

Whether you choose to stay at the cabin or get out and explore Gatlinburg, you are sure to find activities that will bring your family closer! We had a blast competing to be the top pool shark in the game room or fighting for top shooter on the Big Buck game. At the end of the day, we poured ourselves into the beds – exhausted – yet full of happiness.

Does your family love to shop? There are a ton of adorable shops that line the streets for your shopping pleasure. Many of the eateries, fudge/candy stores, and wineries/distilleries have free taste test, too!

#4 – The Views!

The Smoky Mountains offer spectacular views regardless of what time of the year you visit. I would love to have seen the trees in full color; but, even without their leaves, the trees and mountains are breathtaking. Before moving to Tennessee in 1998, my grandma would tell me that she lived in God’s Country. I never really understood what that meant until we planted our roots here.

Exploring the Smoky Mountains with your friends and family is a delightful way to discover nature. Whether you decide to go deep into the mountains or just explore the woods near the resort, ensure you carry everything you need for your hike. In general, the longer the walk is, the more the clothing, gear, water, and food you’re going to carry. You may also want to buy the new Benchmade griptilian knife and bring a first-aid kit with you in case of an accident.

#5 – Friendly + Quality Service

Retail was the first industry that I worked in as a teenager. As an adult, I now believe that everyone should have to work in some type of retail position. The old phrase You’ll catch more flies with honey than you will with vinegar will be crystal clear in no time. We were greeted with a smile and received super-friendly service at the welcome center as we came through the door. Great service goes a long way with my husband and I when it comes to being a repeat customer/guest!
