How to Book a Weekend Getaway to the Smokies for Less than $450

Planning a romantic getaway can seem a little overwhelming, but we can help you book an unforgettable weekend for two in the Smokies. For less than $450, you and your sweetheart can enjoy one of our luxurious cabins in Gatlinburg, incredible views, romantic dining, and exciting excursions. Surprising that special someone with some much-needed time alone and make some memories at the same time.


Cabins in Gatlinburg Are Ideal for Romance

The first time is to find the perfect cabin for you. With three dozen different one- and two-bedroom cabins in Gatlinburg from $99 to $140, there is a wide selection for that perfect spot. Prefer somewhere secluded where the two of you will feel miles from anywhere? Eagles Ridge is a gorgeous one-bedroom cabin with a wraparound porch, stone fireplace, and hot tub. Priced at only $130 in mid-November, this is a great spot for a little alone time.


How about a view of the beautiful Smoky Mountains? Nicely within the budget at $140 is two-bedroom Mountain Ridge, which has breath-taking views of the mountains from both of its back porches. The living room has a stacked-stone fireplace with flat-screen television above. Both cabins in Gatlinburg have full kitchens and a separate sleeping area if you are bringing children on your weekend away.


Gatlinburg Date Ideas Include Fine Dining

Next on the plan is dining. All of our guests receive a free pancake breakfast, taking care of your morning meal on the Saturday. There are many cafés, sandwich shops, and classic barbecue joints for a reasonably priced lunch, thus saving part of your budget for a special dinner.


Treat your loved one with a four-course fine dining experience at Christopher Place, where a set menu costs $40 per person and includes options like lemon kale Caesar salad, Cornish hens in a sweet vermouth reduction, and apple and cardamom tart.


For your second night, take advantage of the full kitchen and have a candelight dinner just to yourself. Marinate a pair of steaks, some local trout, or a tasty veggie option, fire up the charcoal grill, and pop some bubbly while dinner cooks. Pair it with a bottle of something nice and a fancy cheesecake and enjoy fine dining in your cabin. Plus, it is only a short walk to the hot tub, from which you can watch the sun set and the stars come out.


Fun, Outdoorsy Gatlinburg Date Ideas

The final item on the agenda is an excursion. For thrill-seekers, get your blood pumping with a ropes course or ziplining. If you prefer things a little lower key, how about two tickets to the SkyBridge or Aerial Tram to take in the amazing views of the fall or winter colors.


After dinner, go to look at the amazing Christmas light displays in Pigeon Forge, which hangs half a million lights for yuletide glee. Only a short drive from either of the cabins in Gatlinburg, the crisp mountain air will give you plenty of opportunities to snuggle close.


Believe it or not, the weekend above comes in under $450, even with two nice dinners. Reserve one of cabins in Gatlinburg and book your Gatlinburg date ideas!
