Cabins: Embrace your inner pioneer
Many travelers feel that log cabins are the next best thing to being outdoors.The most popular choice in Gatlinburg, traditional-style log cabins feature natural wood exteriors and interiors and provide visitors with a rustic home away from home.

Chalets: Get one with nature in a chalet
Similar in architectural style to a Swiss mountain dwelling, picturesque chalets have sloping roofs and wide eves, and offer a completely different look and feel than a log cabin.

Offering modern amenities (similar to a comfortable or luxury hotel), chalets provide families with kids the extra room they need in a tranquil and woodsy setting. Most feature multiple bedrooms and bathrooms; upscale kitchens and separate dining areas; family rooms and common areas; and patios and balconies overlooking the gorgeous mountain vistas.
Condos: Clear Comfort
Another comfortable lodging option in Gatlinburg is a condo, and ideal rental choice for smaller families who prefer to have easy access to shopping and downtown instead of being based in a rural and secluded environment.

And you won’t have to sacrifice the mountain views either, because most condos in Gatlinburg are in close proximity to the Great Smokies, and most feature balconies for soaking in the scenery.
