Stunning Cabins in Smoky Mountains

There is a plethora of accommodations in this picturesque destination due to the vast area it covers. Regardless of where you end up staying, cabins with towering ceilings and fireplaces that burn for hours await. Windows open to breathtaking vistas, while decks become host to wilderness watching and lively barbecues. Granite-top kitchens, private swimming docks, and slips for jet skis and boats are more amenities to enjoy.

Boating and Fishing in the Smoky Mountains

Mountain ranges are notorious for clear lakes and pristine wilderness areas. This destination is no different except for the number of large bodies of water. Carter’s Lake, Lake Burton, Lanier, Rabun, and Russell offer isolated locations teeming with a variety of trout and bass. The vast Hartwell Lake stretches from the southern border of the Smoky Mountains with angling from a variety of vessels including pontoons and kayaks. Unique accommodations located on the banks of rivers, streams, and creeks make it easy for vacationers to spend loads of time fishing.

Attractions Worth the Trip

Mountain excursions are loaded with attractions that have natural features. The Smoky Mountains are no exception with impressive waterfalls and geological landscapes. Tourists come from surrounding towns or faraway places to enjoy all that this destination has to offer.

  • Amicalola Falls: This natural wonder is a range of waterfalls in a park by the same name, which means “tumbling waters”. There is an infamous mile long stairway that reaches the summit of the falls with 360-degree picturesque views. The trail continues for nearly eight miles to the southern entrance of the Appalachian Trail. Reservations at this destination are filled with hiking on nine trails of various levels and fresh-water fishing.
  • Sky Valley: the second highest peak in the state of Georgia is Bald Mountain. It was the impetus for naming this destination. The 100-mile vistas deliver an exquisite perspective to the Smoky Mountains and their sister ranges in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Wilderness and bird watching are more activities to engage in. A scenic ride south to nearby Tallulah Falls State Park is worth the trip.
  • Rock City: This attraction is a wonderland of nature’s best. Pre-historic geology and trails with ancient trees line the meandering trails. Journaling the variety of 400 flora species can fill the day. Nearby Ruby Falls beckons during the stop with more of the natural habitat in this zone of the Smoky Mountains. Lookout Mountain in the state of Georgia is a well-kept secret. Clear days boost the ability to see seven states as far away as Kentucky and Virginia. Once vacationers come for the first time, they will return for special events
