Cozy cabins in the Smoky Mountains abound, from basic options to luxurious offerings. The national park gateway towns, such as Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, have plenty of cabin accommodations, while lodging in more remote locations allows for a truly serene and romantic getaway.

Check out these appealing cabins in the Smoky Mountains — one of which might be ideal for your next trip.

2. Dancing Bear Lodge

Dancing Bear Lodge in Townsend, Tennessee, is a 38-acre mountain retreat. Cabins have different layouts, amenities, and a number of bedrooms for all budgets. Each maintains a cozy aesthetic and offers modern amenities including hot tubs, Wi-Fi, and fireplaces.

While some cabins have kitchens, guests can also enjoy the onsite dining facilities, which include romantic Appalachian Bistro and casual Apple Valley Cafe. Most recently, the Hallmark Channel used Dancing Bear Lodge as a filming location for Love in the Great Smoky Mountains.
