On a warm spring day, there is nothing better than sitting in a rocking chair and taking in the majestic mountain views. Many of our log cabins in Pigeon Forge TN come with gas grills, so you can have a barbeque right on your deck. Just be sure to pick up some hamburgers or steaks on the way to your cabin.
In the evening, couples will love soaking in the bubbly hot tub on their deck. To make things extra romantic, plan it so your dip in the tub coincides with sunset!

Another highlight of spring at Dollywood is the Barbeque & Bluegrass Festival.
