Between the kids, the job, and all your other day-to-day responsibilities, making time for romance can be tough. If you find yourself longing for some quiet time together, head for the Great Smoky Mountains, where breathtaking scenery, starlit evenings, and plenty of couple’s fun will have you falling in love all over again.
Romantic Cabins for Two
Scattered among the hills surrounding Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN, you’ll find rustic cabins just perfect for a romantic getaway. Winding roads lead to your secluded hideaway where you’ll enjoy a hot tub for two, wake up to the spectacular mountain scenery, and even call for an in-cabin couple’s massage.
Early mornings will find you comfortably cuddling on the porch as a cool mist blankets the valley below. Enjoy a steaming cup of coffee together before heading into the picturesque village of Pigeon Forge for a day of shopping, sightseeing, and shows.
Downtown Pigeon Forge has plenty to offer the couple in search of some alone time. You’ll stroll hand in hand along the quaint streets, gazing into shop windows to discover the unique arts and crafts the area is known for. Lunch will find you sitting in a tiny sidewalk café enjoying each other’s company while you plan the rest of your day.
Evenings out in Pigeon Forge offer unparalleled entertainment options. Murder mystery dinner theaters provide lots of fun for amateur sleuths, or settle in for a live rodeo at Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede. For a quieter evening, make the short drive to Gatlinburg and hop aboard the Aerial Tram for a ride up the side of the mountain to dine at Ober Gatlinburg.
Of course, for true togetherness, head back to your cabin and spend the evening preparing your favorite meal. The glow of candles and a roaring fire will set the mood for an evening of romance you’ll never forget. After dinner, a soothing dip in the hot tub will lull you into a restful sleep.
Surprise Him with a Couple’s Massage
There’s no better way to relax those hard-working muscles than with a massage, and there is no more soothing setting than a private cabin in the woods. Area masseuses are available for in-room couple’s massages that will leave you as relaxed as if you’d spent the day in a spa. The view of the countryside combined with the fresh mountain air turns this wonderful treat into a truly delightful experience.
If a massage isn’t his style, perhaps a romantic walk in the forest will be more to his liking. You’ll wander along the trails, watching as the woodland creatures scurry about, doing their daily chores. Or pack a picnic lunch and head off in search of a quiet clearing where you can spread a blanket and simply enjoy the peace and tranquility of your own private mountain hideaway. With hundreds of miles of trails crisscrossing the mountains, you’re sure to find a secluded spot just perfect for a romantic afternoon.
If you think romance is reserved for February 14th, think again. In the Great Smoky Mountains, beautiful scenery and activities designed just for couples combine to make your vacation a romantic excursion you’ll never forget – no matter when you visit.
