What better way to kick off 2017 than with a Cozy Cabin Getaway with your best girlfrans! Filled with excitement and armed with snow boots and faux fur, the girls and I took to the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We lodged in a
warm & cozy (it was actually cold AF) 3 story cabin complete with a full kitchen, hot tub, pool table and fire place on each floor. After a scary, windy drive up a steep 8 mile mountain, it was all worth it. The views from the cabin were simply breath taking.
With scenery this beautiful, of course a photo shoot was penciled into the schedule.
3 THINGS YOU MUST DO WHEN VISITING GATLINBURG
Have Brunch at Pancake Pantry which is Gatlinburg’s oldest pancake house. I have to say the pancakes here are the definition of the saying “looks can be deceiving.” At first glance, it looked like a regular pancake from the frozen food aisle, and then I took a bite. Those pancakes were life giving. They are made with REAL butter, & everything is made from scratch. If that wasn’t enough, I indulged in the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had in life, seriously EVER! Aside from the yummy food, I also enjoyed the warm atmosphere of century-old brick, rich oak and rustic copper.
Go Skiing at Ober Gatlinburb, an amusement park located in the mountains over looking the town. I’ve never gone skiing before, but hitting the slopes has always been on my list of adventures. I was a bit apprehensive after the staff continually suggested lessons for beginners, but I bottled up that fear, said forget those lessons, and #HitTheSlopes. Skiing was an experience I will never forget and it was best $100 I’ve ever spent!
RENT A CABIN INSIDE BROTHER’S COVE RESORT, a secluded mountain resort community with access to the Great Smoky Mountains and all the entertainment in Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and Gatlinburg. Surrounded by nature is so peaceful and serene and the views from the mountaintop speak for themselves.
The best part of it all was having friends by my side to share the new experiences and create endless memories.
