Cabins for your Smoky Mountain Wedding
As you plan your dream wedding in the Smoky Mountains, it may be wise to consider your lodging choice early in the planning stages. Staying in a cabin near your wedding venue will be convenient and may save you from the stress of traffic as you travel throughout the area. In fact, some of Aunt Bug’s cabins are in resorts that offer pavilions, gazebos, or other quaint areas for a small wedding.
Camelot #266, for example, sits in the resort area of Alpine Mountain Village. This resort offers an outdoor pool, pavilion, and walking trails along a creek. The large cabin sleeps 8 guests, which is perfect for an elopement with your closest loved ones.
Aunt Bug’s has cabin rental options in other resorts as well, including Hidden Springs Resort and Condo Villas. These resorts offer multiple cabins close to each other. This idea is great for larger groups who want to be near each other but still desire privacy.
If you would like to host a large group in one big cabin, Rocky Top Views #668 is for you! This cabin sleeps up to 28 guests and is the ideal setting for celebrating with your family and friends. The three-story cabin has a wraparound deck with panoramic views of the Smoky Mountains. Take in the terrific sunrises and sunsets from this unbelievable cabin!

Located near Dollywood, this is a wise option for large parties who want to split up during the day to visit attractions and experience the fun things to do in the Smoky Mountains.

Morning View #131
This cabin has a spectacular view to wake up to. Inside, guests will enjoy the romantic stacked-stone fireplace, Jacuzzi tub, fully equipped kitchen, and other amenities. However, the real treat is the view from the back deck. Soak in the Smoky Mountain view from the hot tub. Morning View is centrally located in Sevier County, so it is a good option for those who want to visit local wineries, indulge in fine dining, or hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Planning a Romantic Smoky Mountain Getaway
Agents with Aunt Bug’s Cabin Rentals enjoy helping clients plan a romantic trip to the Smoky Mountains!
“One of our favorite ways to help guests is when we get to be a part of the husband’s secret plans for a getaway with his wife,” Heather explained. “Our most recent surprise was a couple from England celebrating their 40th anniversary. Out of all the places in the world, he chose to surprise his wife with a cabin in the Smoky Mountains.”
If you’re planning an intimate getaway for your significant other, Heather has a suggestion for the most romantic cabin. She revealed that the most romantic Smoky Mountain cabin is Lover’s Hideaway #1616. This cabin is one of the most private cabins, and guests love it for its reclusive location. It is in Wears Valley, which is a remote area closer to “the peaceful side of the Smokies” instead of the action of Pigeon Forge. Lover’s Hideaway is tucked into a cozy wooded setting, and it is near a pond, deli, and a seasonal pool. This option is perfect for the couple who prefer to stock up on groceries and stay in or near the cabin throughout their stay. Check out the photos and description of Lover’s Hideaway to learn more.
