4 Tips for Making the Most of Your Fall Vacation at Our Great Smoky Mountain Vacation Rentals


With incredible foliage and a wide variety of things to do, the Smoky Mountains have everything you need for an amazing fall vacation. To help you make the most of your autumn getaway, Heritage Cabin Rentals has put together four tips for staying at our Great Smoky Mountain vacation rentals:

1. Have a Group Vacation at One of Our Large Cabins

One of our 5 + bedroom cabins in the Smoky Mountains is ideal for a large gathering with friends or family. Make your getaway an extended family vacation or perhaps a family reunion. You might even consider spending Thanksgiving in the Smokies. All of our cabins come with fully equipped kitchens, so you can easily prepare your own holiday feast. Enjoying the beauty of fall in the Smoky Mountains is even more fun when you’re sharing the experience with lots of people.

2. Take in the Spectacular Fall ColorsRenwed Spirit, one of our Great Smoky Mountain vacation rentals in the fall.

Fall looks a little different everywhere you go, but nowhere is it more beautiful than the Smoky Mountains. From the end of September through early November, you can see an amazing array of colors as the leaves go through their annual transformation. Vacationers will be able to appreciate the beautiful foliage right from their Great Smoky Mountain vacation rentals as they look out the window or step onto the deck. You can also venture to some spots in the area that are renowned for providing exceptional views. Take a drive on one of the scenic routes through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, such as Newfound Gap Road or the Cades Cove loop. Wherever you go, be sure to bring your camera so you can capture some of the incredible fall colors and share your pictures later.

3. Enjoy the Autumn Scenery on a Segway

Segways have become an extremely popular way to see the scenery, and this trend has reached the Smokies. At Segway Rental and Sales of Pigeon Forge, you can rent a Segway and explore the picturesque Smoky Mountain area. 30 minute lessons are provided to make sure you’re comfortable on the Segway. Even if you’ve never used one before, you’ll find that they are very easy to maneuver. This is a fun and safe way to get around and enjoy the fall scenery.

Another great way to take in the fall colors in the Smoky Mountains is on horseback. At Cades Cove Riding Stables, you can choose between riding tours, carriage rides, and hayrides, which are all fun and exciting ways to experience one of the most beautiful areas in the national park. In addition to seeing the fall leaves on display, you’re likely to see all kinds of wildlife in Cades Cove, such as white-tailed deer, turkey, and black bears. Horses are gentle and do not gallop, so these tours are appropriate for people of all levels of riding experience.
