Are you bringing a group to the Smoky Mountains? There is nothing better than a Smoky Mountain group vacation, and staying at a luxury resort (instead of a large group cabin) will offer your group a superior experience, taking it to the next level.
Whether you’re coming to the Smoky Mountains for a corporate retreat, family reunion, girlfriends’ getaway, intimate wedding, or other group gathering, there are several benefits of staying at a luxury group resort versus a large group cabin rental.
Superior Accommodations at a Luxury Group Resort
Staying at a luxury group resort instead of a large group cabin means experiencing superior accommodations.
Choosing a luxury group resort over a large luxury cabin rental includes many of the same amenities as well as the personal touch and added benefit of on-site staffing to care for your every need – leaving you to relax and enjoy your vacation or retreat instead of stressing over the details.
Individually decorated rooms provide a personal touch that will elevate your group’s stay at a luxury resort in the Smoky Mountains. When you’re not gathered together, you can escape to your private quarters and enjoy luxurious accommodations that surpass anything a large group cabin rental can offer.
“Christopher Place has been our retreat from the world. We like a quiet place to stay and relax. We love shopping at the outlets and having the ability to return to the beautiful home and spend time together reconnecting.” – review from Tammie H
When you stay in a luxury group cabin, the amenities are often shared with other properties in the community. When you stay at a luxury group resort, all of the amenities are reserved just for your group (when booking a whole-house event). Whether you’re wanting to relax in the resort’s private sauna, enjoy a game of tennis, take a hike on the property’s walking trails, or play a game of pool, a luxury resort provides your group with the extra amenities that offer a superior experience.
Superior Setting at a Luxury Group Resort
Staying at a luxury group resort instead of a large group cabin means experiencing a superior setting.
While a large group cabin rental provides several bedroom options, they generally include bunks or other room-sharing groupings. Also, the gathering areas in cabins are often open and lack intimacy. A luxury group resort can offer your group more private sleep accommodations and many different options for gathering areas where private conversations and intimate connections can happen.
“The house is lovely and has an exceptional view of the mountains. The staff is very attentive and courteous.” – review on Hotels.com
When you stay at a luxury resort, your group will be close enough to all that Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have to offer without being in the middle of a group of cabins. The secluded setting will offer opportunities for solitude while on a group retreat.
Superior Service at a Luxury Group Resort
Staying at a luxury group resort instead of a large group cabin means experiencing superior service.
While many of the standard amenities of a luxury group resort can be found in a large group cabin rental, one of the most noticeable differences is the on-site staff at a luxury group resort.
“The food was AMAZING and I’m not a huge fan of breakfast food but during our stay, my favorite part was waking up and going to breakfast because it was THAT good. The staff was SO friendly and went out of their way to make sure all our needs were met, but gave us our privacy at the same time.” – review from Elizabeth I
When you stay at a large group cabin, you rarely ever see or hear from the cabin’s owner. Most, if not all, of the arrangements are made through a booking or management company who may or may not actually know the area and/or property. At a luxury resort, however, you have the superior experience of having on-site staff to help you plan and execute your group’s getaway.
“We enjoyed our time here, only wish we could’ve stayed longer. It was very quiet and staff was very friendly. It was definitely a unique experience. This would be a great place for a family gathering as well as a couples retreat.” – review on TripAdvisor.com
Having on-site staff to take care of all the details makes planning a group vacation in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, & the Smoky Mountains a breeze. Instead of making your own meals, doing your own dishes, or always looking for a restaurant in town, away from your cabin, the staff at a luxury group resort can take care of the details like cleaning and cooking while your group can focus on connecting and creating memories.
A personal chef to prepare gourmet breakfasts, picnic lunches, and unique dinner menus are just a few of the perks of staying a luxury group resort instead of renting a large group cabin in the Smoky Mountains. Without needing to plan and prepare meals for a large group, you have more time to enjoy all that the Smoky Mountains has to offer.
The on-site coordinator removes the hassle and stress of planning your group’s activity schedule. (S)he can plan outings, arrange for tickets, and even coordinate transportation for your group as you enjoy all that Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have to offer.
- Love food? Ask your group activities coordinator about the Rocky Top Wine Trail, local Smoky Mountain breweries, or a Moonshine tasting or tour.
- Love adventure? Horseback riding, hiking, waterfalls, fishing, bicycling, ziplining, white water rafting, and more can be a fun part of your Smoky Mountain group experience.
- Love local attractions? Whether you’re planning to visit Dollywood, Splash Country, Dixie Stampede, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, or take a tour of Smoky Mountain National Park, the on-site coordinator at a luxury group resort makes bringing a group to the Smoky Mountains a fun and enjoyable experience.
Choosing a luxury group resort in the Smoky Mountains allows your group to take advantage of group activities in nearby Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg during the day and escape to your private and intimate resort in the evenings.
