									Tips For Selecting a Smoky Mountain Cabin Rental
Not all Smoky Mountain cabin rentals are created equal. Everyone knows
the basic items to look for. How many bedrooms and bathrooms does it
have? Which part of town is it in? How much does it cost? While these
questions are important, it's the questions that you don't ask that might
turn your vacation rental into a nightmare.
The first question you need to ask is the property setup. Many travelers
are thinking that they are renting a secluded, mountaintop cabin, but
they arrive to find a cleared two acre plot with ten rental cabins on

trip ahead of time so you know which attractions you would like to visit.
If you are mainly interested in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park,
Cherokee is located right at the Southern entrance of the park. If you
are an outdoor enthusiast, Bryson City is a paradise for kayaking,
mountain climbing, and white water rafting. If you are interested in the
quirkiness that Gatlinburg has to offer, it is a great destination,
especially if you are coming from the Northern states.
