What better place to start your life together than on a honeymoon in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and the Smoky Mountains? Start planning your honeymoon today with these ideas on where to stay, what to do, and where to eat.

Where to Stay

When planning your lodging for your Pigeon Forge honeymoon, we have one piece of advice: think cozy. There's nothing better than being able to return to a quiet, warm atmosphere after a long day of exploring and adventuring with your sweetheart.


Book a Tennessee Smokies "Honeymoon Cabin"

A honeymoon cabin is a 1-bedroom cabin. Bonus points if it has a fireplace, an arcade game, and a private hot tub on a screened-in porch. Cozy up to your love and make magical memories.



Smokies Cabins with Fireplaces

There has been a trend in the Smokies toward electric fireplaces due to their ease of use. Our larger cabin has one. However, for a Honeymoon Cabin, you was a gas or wood-burning fireplace to provide the warmth and atmosphere you desire.

Cabins with Hot Tubs

You will also see a lot of variables with hot tubs in the area. Ours are completely private and located on screened-in porches to keep uninvited guests away. Our hot tubs are drained, cleaned, then refilled with filtered water between each guest so you can relax and enjoy your sweetie.
