Where Do We Stay?
On June 23, 2015
Where do we stay? When planning our family vacations, this question always pops up after we decide where we are going and how we are getting there. Luckily, Pigeon Forge has many great options to choose from and we have never been disappointed in our choices!!
Lodging options in Pigeon Forge:
- Hotels and Motels– This is a great option if you want to be close to all of the action on the Parkway. Most offer a free breakfast and of course, there is maid service. After all, who really wants to clean up after themselves when they are on vacation? The kids can enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools that many hotels/motels have on-site, or take a trip down the lazy river. For those looking to relax, check out the hotels that have spas on-property. With so many hotels and motels located along the Little Pigeon River, beautiful scenery and a river view is as close as a step onto your balcony. Whether you are looking for budget-friendly, or a family-sized suite like at Dollywood’s new DreamMore Resort, you are sure to find something in your comfort zone and price range!
- Condos– This is a great option if you want all the luxuries of home while you are away. They offer many different floor plans which are great for larger families. Condos have fully equipped kitchens which make meal times a little cheaper. Some even have in room Jacuzzi’s for some relaxing time at the end of the day and gas fireplaces for those chilly nights. They offer activities like community pools, game rooms, and exercise facilities. Some condos even have a spa on site!!
- Camping and RV Parks– This is a great option for those true outdoorsy families. You can experience the mountains while sitting by a campfire, enjoying the stars, and breathing in the fresh mountain air. Campsites in Pigeon Forge can house anything from a small tent to a 35 foot RV with hook-ups. Reserve a site on the river for the best seat in the house! The kids will stay entertained going from playground to pool all right there in the campground/RV park. If you’re not up for the task of towing your camper with you, check out camping cabins in town. This option offers adventures galore and one of the biggest perks is cheaper cost!
- Cabins and Chalets– This option is a great way to experience the true “mountain” feel. Most of them are tucked away in the quieter parts of town and offer a spectacular view of the area scenery. Cabins/chalets are spacious, and like condos, you also get fully equipped kitchens for less meal time stress. Also, many of them are split levels. This makes it a great option if you are traveling with multiple families and wish to stay together. For us, an added perk is the kids can get outdoors and explore.
Which option will your family choose on your next visit to the Land of More?
